Assassin’s Creed Odyssey betrays its lineage. For a series so deeply entrenched in ancestral history, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey strays from nearly everything its predecessors have accomplished. Its DNA is mismatched at times. It’s the furthest limb on the family tree.

That is to say, the majority of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey doesn’t really feel like Assassin’s Creed. It’s easier and more appropriate to draw parallels to outside influences than to most of the franchise’s past titles. This sudden identity shift is wild considering this is the eleventh mainline Assassin’s Creed. It pays off. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is the best Assassin’s Creed game to date.
