I prefer playing when I feel like it rather then eating up my data cap on months like these. I just changed over to a comcast hotspot nearby so I dont go over the 1TB this month.

Completed the base game in about 65 hours, got the best ending. "Completed" should be in quotes because there's probably another 100+ hours of optional content still left to do, and that's not even counting the DLCs.

Odyssey suffers from a lot of unnecessary bloat, copy pasted assets and unnecessarily large yet barren areas. Even congested cities/villages can feel "barren" because they are just copy/pasted assets over and over with no real gameplay value other than to pad size and gameplay time to the game. Almost as if the devs needed to prove to the shareholders that "its the biggest game world ever".

It is a good game. A great game even. But it's also the Ubisoft open world formula pushed to max capacity, the personification of quantity over quality. It's a jack of all trades game - it does well in all areas but doesn't feel like it excels at any (except from technological points like visuals/level streaming etc, no doubt the tech behind the game is phenomenal).

It isn't even an assassination game anymore, the gameplay is closer to "Witcher lite" than older titles in the series (from AC1 to Syndicate) which you felt like an Assassin, instead of "go grind for a few hours to level up so you can kill this guy in 10 hits instead of 30".

I hope this post isn't too negative. There is a lot to love about this game, you can get many hours of enjoyment from it if you don't mind the ubisoft open world formula, but it's another step away from the the original AC games identity.

I'm so far behind in Assassins Creed, I don't think I'll ever be able to catch up. I absolutely LOVED the first one, never quite made it through the 2nd. I played a few hours of the pirate one, and dabbled for an hour or so in a couple others.

They need to make a "Remastered Recap" edition, where they condense the stories from each game into just a couple hours, and bundle the whole thing together to let people like me get caught up. then maybe I'll buy the next game.

Odyssey is def a case of quantity. But I think it's a rare case were the sheer size of the world and the contents is a positive. AC2 / Brohood are still better games, but I don't mind how Odyssey does things.

you have the legacy ones that follow etzio/altair, the random ones after (pirates, native americans, industrial europe), and then this last series with odyssey and origins.

i was worried with the middle ones because i was behind so much, but playing black flag and rogue and the other ones is easy, and easy to get into even if you havnt played a AC game inna while. Of the new ones, I liked origins A LOT more than odyssey. but these newest ones feel like way more of a stand alone game than the old "continuing-story" ones.

I like the locale and lore better in Origins because I'm fascinated by ancient Egyptian history. However as a whole package Odyssey is a cut above IMO. It's pretty much the definitive AC experience so far.

Started playing. Not yet loving it, even though I'm a sucker for ancient Greece, and I really loved Origins. It feels like Ubisoft continuously makes the same mistakes though: too many systems, too many icons, too much fuss. Also, flashbacks to Far Cry 2, where you can't really walk two steps in the world without being harassed.

I just started a mission and was accompanying an NPC on a heart-felt talk about my father, when not one, but two Mercenaries appear, running at me and attacking in full force. Yes, this is exactly what I was doing right now, thanks. Well-timed, Ubi.

Also, 1080p medium settings, and my i5 8400 and 1060 3GB can't pull off a stable 60fps frame rate. I was kinda hoping for more. It's a pretty game, but not thát pretty, especially not at the settings I'm running.

I also just started this (played like 15 hours now) and holy **** the combat sucks. Everyone was saying how great this game s, so i grabbed it instead of origins during christmas, ad its pretty fine over all, i enjoy a lot of it. Though holy scrotums why is the game so big? Seriously, ive already played about half the witcher 3 map and ive covered maybe 8% of the games map? Why... Whatever, it has fast travel.

The combat though. Man it's ****ed. Locking on apprently doesnt mean the character will focus the target, just the camera will. The mc still randomly attacks other targets when pressing nothing but the attack button. Parry is also ****ed up, and when looking it up online for advice, is completely mixed. Some people say to parry when the weapon flashes, but that only works half the time, and others say to parry just before the weapon hits you, but again it only works half the time. Then there are random attacks from enemy that are counter intuitive to the games own systems!!

Like, some of the dual wielding enemies, one weapon will flash saying an attack is coming, only for them to stab you instantly with their other weapon instead, etc

Dodging too is ****ed. Multiple enemies have moves that either come in from off screen (the brutes leap slam for example), or moves they charge at you and put the enemy right up inside your body, but dont count as an attack so you dont get the dodge slow down, but you dodged it, so the dodge cooldown is on and their next attack hits anyway...

On some very few enemies, ive even noticed some attacks that hit you even though the physical models in game were no where near you.
Is the combat hit scanned?

Then on top of all that are the counter attacks, which ****ing miss, because the parry knocks the enemy away, or the dodge gives the enemy enough time to move slightly out of range. What is the point of counter attacks if half of them miss?

Man the ai in this game is dumb too. I've seen athenians just walk into a spartan base as if they owned the place. As well as both parties just ignoring each other sometimes when quest people are in random places outside bases. Not to mention how freaking dumb it is that bandits ignore mercs completely, even when they are strolling through their camps. Or animals and bandits sometimes completely ignoring soldiers, especially near their bases. I convinced a couple bears to follow me over to a spartan base, and then just watched as one of the bears stood right next to a soldier and had a staring contest before just walking way...

Ironically though, i want to be clear, i do actually like this game.

The mercs took me a little to work out. Firslty, they are only dangerous at the start, because the first two are higher level than you, secondly, they only track you if you get spotted by people... unfortunately that means even civilians, but if you stealth around a lot, they wont find you.

I find it best to take them out as soon as you can, so they dont get in the way, because the god damn enemies dont care about them, becuse the ai in this game is ****ed.

On the fps, the game is so badly optimized. It gets random performance from different systems. Ive seen testing and people show off getting 45 fps with a 970, yet my 980ti sits at 42 on lower settings with a better cpu. The in game descriptions and stuff for the settings are really nice, but i would appreciate the game saying which settings are cpu or gpu dependant. Could of helped a lot.

lol you gays. Game like dope. Only your sorry asses is unable to play because you guys suck.

But on a more serious note, the combat has a magical rhythm to it but you need to figure it out. I suggest a controller since I played the game on the box and got about 150 hours of it. On PC I can see why the combat can be a **** show.

But on a more serious note, the combat has a magical rhythm to it but you need to figure it out. I suggest a controller since I played the game on the box and got about 150 hours of it. On PC I can see why the combat can be a **** show.
This.

Ironically, i stopped using the lock on feature and combat became 1000% easier. Only slightly better, but waaaay easier. Game still has so many freaking bugs and ai problems though. Sometimes drives me crazy, but the majority is pretty nice.

Question though. At first it didnt seem like i needed to worry about the origins story, but now ive hit the second "present day" part, seems like its a continuation of origins? Should i go and check out the story for origins, or dont need to worry about it?

Don't worry about it.

Everyone was saying how great this game s, so i grabbed it instead of origins during christmas, ad its pretty fine over all, i enjoy a lot of it. Though holy scrotums why is the game so big? Seriously, ive already played about half the witcher 3 map and ive covered maybe 8% of the games map? Why... Whatever, it has fast travel.

The combat though. Man it's ****ed. Locking on apprently doesnt mean the character will focus the target, just the camera will. The mc still randomly attacks other targets when pressing nothing but the attack button. Parry is also ****ed up, and when looking it up online for advice, is completely mixed. Some people say to parry when the weapon flashes, but that only works half the time, and others say to parry just before the weapon hits you, but again it only works half the time. Then there are random attacks from enemy that are counter intuitive to the games own systems!!

Like, some of the dual wielding enemies, one weapon will flash saying an attack is coming, only for them to stab you instantly with their other weapon instead, etc

Dodging too is ****ed. Multiple enemies have moves that either come in from off screen (the brutes leap slam for example), or moves they charge at you and put the enemy right up inside your body, but dont count as an attack so you dont get the dodge slow down, but you dodged it, so the dodge cooldown is on and their next attack hits anyway...

On some very few enemies, ive even noticed some attacks that hit you even though the physical models in game were no where near you.
Is the combat hit scanned?

Then on top of all that are the counter attacks, which ****ing miss, because the parry knocks the enemy away, or the dodge gives the enemy enough time to move slightly out of range. What is the point of counter attacks if half of them miss?

Man the ai in this game is dumb too. I've seen athenians just walk into a spartan base as if they owned the place. As well as both parties just ignoring each other sometimes when quest people are in random places outside bases. Not to mention how freaking dumb it is that bandits ignore mercs completely, even when they are strolling through their camps. Or animals and bandits sometimes completely ignoring soldiers, especially near their bases. I convinced a couple bears to follow me over to a spartan base, and then just watched as one of the bears stood right next to a soldier and had a staring contest before just walking way...

Ironically though, i want to be clear, i do actually like this game.





The mercs took me a little to work out. Firslty, they are only dangerous at the start, because the first two are higher level than you, secondly, they only track you if you get spotted by people... unfortunately that means even civilians, but if you stealth around a lot, they wont find you.

I find it best to take them out as soon as you can, so they dont get in the way, because the god damn enemies dont care about them, becuse the ai in this game is ****ed.

On the fps, the game is so badly optimized. It gets random performance from different systems. Ive seen testing and people show off getting 45 fps with a 970, yet my 980ti sits at 42 on lower settings with a better cpu. The in game descriptions and stuff for the settings are really nice, but i would appreciate the game saying which settings are cpu or gpu dependant. Could of helped a lot.
1. Equip bow with poison damage
2. Keep distance and whittle down health and build up adrenaline
3. Use assassination combat finisher

That's how I dealt with the combat stupidity.

yeah you gotta use those like power attacks or whatever that are unblockable.

i didn't like this one NEARLY as much as origins, to the disappointment of KAC's peepee. The story wasn't as interesting, and something felt off. i actually remember quite a bit of origins still but in this one it's basically all forgotten.

Dont really use the bow, went all warrior and ass skills, but did change my build slightly, and took that assassination in the middle of battle skill and holy **** is it better than everything else.

Also, i probs should have mentioned at the start im playing on nightmare.
