It's safe to say that a lot of gamers have a love-hate relationship with the Assassin's Creed franchise.
Once upon a time they were delivering us adventures with engaging stories, loveable characters and innovative gameplay. Then the yearly release schedule started taking its toll, with little innovation and too much of the same. The games got buggier, and Ubisoft started to focus more on making money than releasing a good experience.
Assassin's Creed became a joke in the gaming industry, and it was one we were tired of hearing.
2017's Origins marked a new beginning for the series, but when it was announced that Odyssey would be releasing less than a year after, people were worried the latter would just restart the cycle of Assassin's Creed going downhill all over again.
Boy, were we wrong.
Not every aspect of Odyssey lands perfectly (the massive war battles come to mind), but the final product is much more fun, much more gripping and much more filled with things to do than any Assassin's Creed so far.
