Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Lives Up to Its Legacy


Okay, so for as long as I can remember being a good gamer, I always was a fan of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. It broke the ideals of people saying you can’t learn anything from a video game. It did this by having it’s entire premise of the game surrounded by real and factual events that happened in our own world. I even passed some of my history and English assignments because of the cool and interesting events in the game itself.

Yet the most recent installment I had the most fun with. I won’t go into the DLC’s until a later date because there is already so much to unpack. So, here we go: As you can imagine, this game is set in the ancient Greek time period. Yet, the difference between this game and others is that every single choice you make can severely impact your entire game. It is astounding just how much the game changes with only a few actions made. From the very beginning of the game, your choices impact a portion of the later game.

For me, I spared a family in the beginning of the game because I thought a simple side quest couldn’t impact the game too much. Alas, I was dead wrong. Simply because I decided that I wanted to be a hero I had doomed several people from the later game, showing just how deep and impactful each of your choices are. To me though, I feel that the best ending comes when you decide to not kill off the family members. Which treats you to the sight of having a dinner with a fully reunited family.

So, if you are looking for a game that has a pretty good storyline and with varying endings, you will love Odyssey. And if you just want to learn about history in a fun and interactive way, go and play through the series;  You’ll definitely have fun. Who knows, maybe you can go and prove your teachers wrong with some of the facts that you learn along your journey. So, game on, my friends.
