It’s been a rough few years for the Assassin’s Creed series with the series going stale after the previous entry, but with a break in releases and a brand new era, Assassin’s Creed: Origins managed to remind the team exactly why this series is so important (and oh so good).
Brodie called the game a return to form in his review and gave it a 9. He went on to say: “I fell out of love with Assassin’s Creed a long time ago, but Origins has recaptured the magic that made the series a powerhouse all those years ago. With its humble protagonist, whose outlook on life is clouded by relateable and crushing heartbreak, and a world so detail-rich, it’s hard not to be floored by everything Origins manages to be. Assassin’s Creed Origins is the definitive action-adventure game of the year. It’s a wild power fantasy that satisfies not only a curious thirst for knowledge but both bloodlust and wanderlust to such lengths it’s almost gluttonous.”
