The Curse of the Pharaohs is a big step outside of what we’re used to seeing from Assassin’s Creed Origins, and it pulls its whimsically mystical journey off well. Combat continues to be fun and challenging, and this time your biggest foes are fleshed out and varied enough to turn what could’ve easily been a monotonous series of fights into a highlight. Along with the side activities of hunting down stolen relics and exploring desecrated tombs, this surreal DLC goes above and beyond expectations.

Here’s hoping Ubisoft fixes these with patches soon. That said, it becomes easier to accept these concessions in trade for what is an expansion that is packed with content. It’s different and vibrant and expands Origins’ ancient Egypt setting in unique ways, and it’s got anywhere from ten to twenty hours’ worth of content. The Curse of the Pharaohs is, without a doubt, one of the best things to have come out of Ubisoft in the last couple of years.

Curse of the Pharaohs is a marvelous DLC that builds upon what makes Assassin’s Creed Origins great and takes it one step further into the realm of the fantastic. With new gear, weapons, upgrades, and abilities to unlock, Bayek has his work cut out for him taking on the animated dead. The story is unique and interesting, but the characters you encounter feel flat, and having to return to them to ask for information they withheld feels like an excuse to drag out the gameplay.

Bayek heads to Thebes to retrive another lost artifact, only to find himself taking a trip into the afterlife. The base map for this expansion seems about as big as the Hidden Ones expansion, but the additional afterlife regions add scale and scope to this DLC. The regions also untether Ubisoft's artists from reality, allowing them to come up with some grand vistas as a result. Curse of the Pharaohs is what Origins needed and stands as one of the better expansions for an Assassin's Creed game.

Assassin's Creed Origins: Curse of the Pharaohs is a great expansion that does a fantastic job of bringing ancient Egypt's spiritual side to life. Channelling the creativity of a clearly talented team, the DLC breaks the series' historical shackles and provides a memorable adventure packed with cool boss encounters. Curse of the Pharaohs is right up there with the best that Ubisoft's franchise has to offer.

If I had to compare to Assassin’s Creed Origins: The Curse of the Pharaohs to something, it would be The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine. This expansion does a fantastic job closing up the main game, while still providing tons of fresh content. The new enemies are just fun to fight. The game has plenty of new systems that made it feel like it was going beyond just adding “more”. If you enjoyed Assassin’s Creed Origins, you’d be doing a lot of good diving back in for this mythical adventure.

So good, in fact, that it takes Assassin's Creed Origins and puts it on par - or even ahead! - of Black Flag for best Assassin's Creed game of all time. Future Assassin's Creed titles take note, sometimes a little bit of the mythical and magical can elevate the game even further …and how about giving eager gamers something in Japan next time?

We truly enjoyed the rich offering that is The Curse of the Pharaohs and spent more than a dozen hours (we haven't completely cleared the map) exploring, fighting and learning about Egypt. The true highlight of the game was venturing into the unknown of the afterlife and the challenge the Pharaohs themselves brought, but it isn't flawless and we wished that Ubisoft had taken a bit more time to iron a few more issues that plague the release. We also kind of wished there had been some puzzle tombs in there even if what we got instead was excellent.

I really enjoyed The Curse of the Pharaohs, because it was a lot of fun to explore the brand new map. The team at Ubisoft really outdid themselves with how beautiful the Afterlife looked, and the new enemy types.

At the end of Curse of the Pharaohs, I was very happy to have spent another weekend in Bayek's world. Ubisoft have offered exactly what you loved about Origins plus some fun twists from the afterlife on the side.

Ubisoft se redimió de muchos de sus errores con Assassin’s Creed Origins; no solo sus locaciones y exploración eran impresionantes, sino que el trasfondo de Bayek, junto al nacimiento de su lucha y retomar elementos tan grandiosos de entregas pasadas como las batallas navales, a la par de una historia sólida y rica en elementos místicos propios de la filosofía egipcia, pusieron a la franquicia de nuevo en el mapa por razones positivas.

La Maldición de los Faraones es una expansión de valor indiscutible y cuyo volumen de contenido puede que no viéramos desde Blood & Wine para The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Podría haberse quedado en lo terrenal y nos hubiera dado unas cuantas horas de diversión como el primer DLC, Los Ocultos, pero la dirección de esta expansión va más allá. Al Más Allá.
Thomas Pillon — Mar 12, 2018
Avec The Curse of the Pharaohs, Ubisoft accouche enfin d'un DLC digne de ce nom, qui joue brillamment la carte du fantastique pour propulser la série vers des sommets visuels saisissants. Si l'aventure recycle évidemment toutes les mécaniques de l'aventure originale, la ville de Thèbes et les recoins de l'Au-Delà apportent un supplément d'âme certain à cette jolie balade, qui dépassera facilement la vingtaine d'heures pour peu que l'on prenne un peu son temps.
Kaaraj — Mar 13, 2018
En se dotant de paysages de l'au-delà visuellement époustouflants, d'un contenu solide et de réflexions pertinentes, Curse of the Pharaohs se pose comme un DLC plaisant et plus complet que son prédécesseur. Il pêche toutefois par la répétitivité des objectifs de ses missions principales, ainsi qu'à cause de son intrigue pas toujours inspirée. Rien qui n'empêche toutefois ce second DLC de justifier son acquisition, ne serait-ce que pour se replonger une dernière fois dans le magnifique univers d'Assassin's Creed Origins.
Filippo Consalvo — Mar 20, 2018
Assassin's Creed Origins è un titolo non perfetto ma ci sentiamo di dire ben realizzato, tra i migliori dell'intera saga e pieno di dettagli e meccaniche che dimostrano tutto l'impegno profuso da Ubisoft per ridare ai fan le emozioni che hanno reso questo brand speciale.
