I remember hearing about Ubisoft releasing this game later than they usually do to make it better. That work definitely shines in Assassin’s Creed: Origins. The world is very large and the missions are interesting. But for someone who appreciates the open-world experience as something of high priority, this game doesn’t really hold up as much as others. I know the game has caves and houses but compared to games like Red Dead Redemption 2 and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, this game just gets pounded into the ground (I know it is unfair to compare this game to Red Dead Redemption 2 but it needs to at least be somewhat close). The story plot doesn’t stay steady, it’s like this. My son killed somebody so I’m going to kill everybody else. You sort of roam around talk to someone then go kill everybody at a certain place. The storyline especially for these types of games, needs to be well thought out, missions need to stay on the subject or all be stable and make sense to the story, and have a good reason why the player is doing what they are doing.

Assassin’s Creed: Origins offers a rich world and a compelling story at first, but it’s waylaid in part by the repetitive side quests and a weaker second half. It has secrets to find, but you’ll have to go looking for them — and you’ll have to do a lot of grinding along the way.

A lot of this review is framed within the context of Assassin’s Creed as a whole and its shortcomings, in a lot of ways, it has to be. A series can’t go on for ten years, take a break, and then return with almost all of the same damn issues. The extra year of development time paid off and ensured that Assassin’s Creed Origins likely wouldn’t underwhelm its audience by repeating its past sins.
