5) Assassin’s Creed Origins – Average Metacritic Score: 83
After a year’s break, the Assassin’s Creed franchise has returned, this time heading to Egypt to tell the origin story of the Assassins Brotherhood and your character, Bayek. Thankfully, the extra time seems to have rejuvenated the series and most critics believe that it is back on form.
It mixes up the traditional Assassin’s Creed formula by improving the combat system, adding a new action-RPG progression system, and introducing rarity-based gear. However, it doesn’t lose what has always made Ubisoft’s series great. Egypt is vast, beautiful, and full of things to do while running and jumping over everything is just as enjoyable as before. It is certainly a more open experience than we’re used to, but the changes that have been made seem to be quite a big step in the right direction.
