    Spent about 10-12 hours on this and really enjoying it. Got to sais ( bit after you meet Cleopatra) and I now got side mission anxiety. Not sure how to play the game and the moment! I walked into ones dude house and that was four more on the table alone!

    Kind of donít want to miss anything but donít want to bog myself down ether. Got a few in Alexandria Iíve yet to do to

    Love Origins, although it took me a good dozen hours to actually get into it. In my top 3 Creed games now (Syndicate and Bro-in-the-hood being the other two) I always split things up on Creed games. For example:
    Sides for a bit
    2,3 mains
    Bounty
    Synchronise
    Skin animals/resource collecting and so on

    That seems to keep if fresh for me.

    Playing AC BF at the moment. I completed on 360 upon release but playing on xb1 now, such a good game save for some frustrating "follow" missions, especially the ship stealth one...a FECKIN Ship!!! ;)

    I just arrived at Kingston and have a feck ton of icons and things to do, which as I said I will pick and choose.

    I just done the Pyramid level, and it is has definitely stepped up since arriving at Letopolis, by a couple of gears. A bit more variety in the missions as well.

    Finding i'm doing all the side stories now, they seem to add quite a bit to the main storyline.

    Started this now from my backlog. Or should I've restarted it. My old save is level 5 but I can't remember how to play it.

    I don't know which if any skills are best to aim for but I'm all for passive agressive meddling so I've gone on the right branch to get sleep darts and some poison thing with a view to getting the poison farts.

    Feels good so far, first AC game since that Italian one.

    Edit: that should say darts but I'm gonna leave it as is 🤪

    After seeing this on offer for £13 in the PSN store and the new game being announced, I thought I'd dip my toes in again.

    The last AC game I played was Black Flag and absolutely loved it. I've only gotten to the first non-Animus bit but I can feel myself really starting to get in to it.

    The only thing I seem to have missed was how to use the shield which I don't think has been explained yet?

    Are either of the story DLCs recommended for Origins? Can get both for ~£12 at the moment...

    @super_whiskey I think it's LB on Xbox so L1 maybe?

    I gave the series a break after Black Flag, so had a few years break too. Got a bit burnt out on the franchise. But this game really landed for me. Outside BOTW I think it is the best open world I have played. I think a lot of that is down to the incredible world design. Not from a gameplay perspective (though it is pretty good), but just from a historical point of view. So much work as gone into making this a believable world, and one that actually feels lived in. There are new buildings built ontop of old temples etc, a clear visual dialogue on how certain farming and burial techniques work. It makes for an immersive experience (for me at least) that I actually learnt from. Ended up picking a couple of books about Egypt because of it.

    @triarii I haven't played either yet, but apparently The Hidden Ones is a bit lightweight, but Curse of the Pharoahs is supposed to be really good.

    I need to get around to them before starting Odyssey.

    @Ror Thanks Khroma, I'm in the same position. Enjoying & taking my time with Origins (over 70 hours so far), when I finish it I'll wait a year and then have a go at Odyssey. Should get to Valhalla around 2027...

    Both DLC are good. The Hidden Ones is more of the same, and Curse is just batshit. :-)

    See, I wanted to get to Valhalla for launch, but with Odyssey apparently being seventeen thousand hours long, it might not happen. I finished Origins a couple of months back, so I should really start the DLC.

    The dlc raises the level cap so if you are getting them do it before you hit max 40 otherwise any additional level ups are wasted

    Just started this few days ago after my mate told me it's more RPG now. He's playing Odessey at the moment. Bought it in the PSN sale and absolutely loving it. A lot of change from previous games which bored me. Combat in this is excellent, nice and meaty and overall a fab game.

    @StaffyDog

    Good to hear. Around 200 hours and counting cross both games. Both excellent but if I had to pick I would go with Origins.👍

    Yeah I'm hoping to finish this and Odessey before Valhalla 😊



    but definitely not rushing

    Just popped on this to say that having played and loved Origins and Odyssey (still working my way through it) I picked up Unity for 8 quid - Paris is stunning and itís such a throwback to the older games that Iím really enjoying it as well. No issues as well on my bog standard PS4 - downloaded the dlc which I noticed was free!

    @DUFFMAN5 Odyssey better for me but only because of the world, just a bit more variety on offer compared to Egyptian setting. Both amazing games though 😊

    Unity is a great game, in fairness to Ubi they did clean up the shitshow of a launch. I still mess around in its world from time to time due to its charm, assuming Revolutionary France can be charming.

    Yeah, I played Unity about a year after launch and it'd been fixed up. Really enjoyed it.

    @Derblington
    Morning mate
    You should definitely give Unity a go. It is a great progression from the 360/Ps3 games and introduces many new things while refining others. The launch hurt it so much, in hindsight probably more than it deserved, allowing for the fact it was rushed and too buggy, yet here we are years later with the same old thing.

    I understand your concerns about going back, I'm currently playing Odyssey on 1X and Rogue on the Ps3, I forgot how hit and miss the climbing is on older games, Unity is like butter compared to the older titles...still a fucker to get Arno through open winfied though!

    I'm conclusion give Unity a go, you will (should) enjoy.
    Viva la 🇫🇷

    I enjoy this game but it's just too big for its own good. Did they really need to do an entire country? I've spent 60+ hours already and there's still a lot left.

    There are large chunks of Origins that are just deserts with no real content. Odyssey is much bigger, and Valhalla is larger again.

    Yeah I'm finding this as I'm playing through it. I'm on level 21 after about 15hrs and feel like I've barely scratched the surface.

    @Derblington there are conflicting reports on that. One says it's more focused and the other says its bigger.
