Best Games of October 2018, According to Metacritic
5) Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – Average Metacritic Score: 86
The Assassin’s Creed series has gone a different direction in the last two years. After taking a break following Syndicate, the series has returned as a more expansive, RPG style experience. Loot, upgrades, and leveling joined the beautiful open world and lore filled storytelling in Origins, and it was all taken to another level with Odyssey.
Odyssey’s world of Ancient Greece is more detailed than any other in the series, and the story it tells is the most compelling since the Ezio trilogy. The gameplay is a refined version of what we saw in Origins, with the combat feeling more fluid and there being more opportunities for climbing.
It is your character’s story that’s the highlight, though. Alexios is great, but Kassandra is the star. She’s funny, witty, powerful, and very well acted. With the great setting acting as backdrop, it’s a lot of fun exploring and getting into trouble as Kassandra.
