Question: I never liked previous versions of AC; never felt it was a "stealth" game when I could just stab everyone in face, run away, and then come back like nothing happened. 

 

Last one I played was Black Flag and I'm wondering if a lot has changed since then. Thanks. 

 

 

odyssey would definitely NOT be for you. See my above description of the game. This is not a real AC game, it's a free roam hack and slash where you use superpowers to kill people.

I've really enjoyed my time with AC: Odyssey, although I haven't burned out on open-world games lately. It's definitely a big departure from the first couple of games, but you can still be stealthy to an extent. I like to go slow and use stealth and take my time at all the forts, etc.

 

It also helps that ancient Greece is one of my favorite settings :)

Playing Origins was mostly "Headshot with bow" my way through all the camps  :lol:

Pretty much the same thing here.  With added bounty and mercenaries systems which make it more detailed or annoying (depending on your point of view).

 

Sitting in the bushes for 3 minutes is still one of the weakest parts of the gameplay.  That said, this game adds a lot of other areas of solid gameplay - so there's more to appreciate.  This was my first AC game since AC3 and I liked it pretty well, 8/10.

AC3 is a pretty low benchmark though.  It's arguably the worst of all the AC games to prior to the revamped gameplay of Origins and Odyssey.

Ubi likes to put out collections when AC has an off year. The last one was the Ezio Trilogy and this year its the ACIII/Liberation remaster. They save the "everything" bundles for on going games like The Division and Rainbow Six Siege.

That person confused origins with odyssey. They even said so after it was pointed out some posts later

From how all my Targets have been (and the few near my friend who lives an hour away from me) it sounds like they aren't merging SKUs anymore. At least mine haven't, there's an actual slot that contains Far Cry 5 Gold with $59.99 as the listed price

Unfortunately, I am not a PRO member, but thanks for the heads up.  Was never able to bring myself to pay for a gamestop membership since I don't really do used games

Yeah I heard the same.  I hope that it's not true for everything.  Guess we'll find out throughout 2019.

Was going to pick up at gamestop but used a $5 reward and price matched at Best Buy since Amazon was doing it. A steal and a great game.
