Imagine The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in ancient Greece. The player is a completely customizable character who must save their brother by battling fierce and creative enemies, unlocking new abilities, exploring the beautifully realistic world they find themself in,while helping the gods of Greek mythology.

The gameplay is interesting, the map packed with activities, yet spread out across the variety of biomes. And the graphics are incredibly realistic, even on a small screen.

Beautifully crafted, definitely recommend.

A masterpiece from Ubisoft. It uses Assassin's Creed Element and is heavily inspired by Nintendo's Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. A witty storytelling, entertaining and will keep you engaged throughout the game.

It reminds me of Breath of the Wild with different elements played into it. It looks stunning and beautiful to look at! It is very mythological and has a lot of ancient stories with such. It's a timeline between talking with someone and being another person. It's a cool game with different capabilities but does have a lot of puzzles in place. It can take a long time to solve them and it doesn't make you want to keep going at them.

Overall, is it an okay game? Yes! Is it the best game of all time? No. I do give it a solid rating since this is probably one of Ubisoft's good games.

There are a lot of enjoyable aspects to Immortals Fenyx Rising, but very little feels new. Instead, it’s similar and safe, like I’ve done this all before. And I have but with a different main character and color palette. Its biggest sin is being entirely forgettable once you move on to the next game.

Immortals Fenyx Rising tries to capture lightning in a bottle with its Breath of the Wild-inspired gameplay, but ends up being more of a lightning thief; it's not as nice to look at and the puzzles aren't as satisfying. Still, the combat is fun, the storytelling is excellent and, despite not being anywhere near as polished as Nintendo's 2017 effort, it certainly does a passable impression.

Ultimately, Immortals Fenyx Rising is a delight to play. Its focus on being a lighthearted take on Greek mythology is appreciated, especially since Ubisoft has mostly reserved its open world formula games for franchises that take themselves a bit too seriously. While the comedic tone and constant banter between all the characters won't strike a chord with everyone, it's certainly bound to make someone smile, and even chuckle at its most cringiest writing.
