    Possibly cheap for the older ones but the later releases are still well overpriced

    Both AC Origins and Odyssey should have dropped in price a bit now. It's been the same sale since the start of this year…

    I used to love the Assassin's Creed series. I started off by playing Assassin's Creed II - i didn't really expect much out of the series but i played an AC game on the iphone back in 2009-10 and i was like "well that was fun, let's see how the PC version plays out", and playing AC II was a really fun time for me. The story was nice, you felt somehow related to this Italian character called Ezio Da Firenze even though he speaks Italian for like half the time and his journey on revenge on the people that killed half of his family and uncovering a big plot was something really new at the time. I didn't play AC I because i think i couldn't find it back then and AC II was considering pretty new at the time, back in 2012 so i played a bunch of it. Mechanics were good back then but playing nowadays it's pretty crappy, but i really enjoyed the storyline so much i just forgot about it. Then i learnt they made more sequels for that storyline - Brotherhood and Revelations. Brotherhood improved on what AC II brought, kept the main guy, and improved the story which was what it needed, and brought life into the story by bringing Ezio to Rome. Revelations took a step back in the mechanics part (especially with the den protection thing, thank god that wasn't necessary to progress the storyline) but had a great ending to the Ezio journey that most of us took part in. I really really enjoyed the series, and i don't think anybody disagrees with me in saying that that storyline is the best in the entire series and nothing comes close, because that main character had a beginning, middle and end parts that were layered out to three titles. If anyone wants to start on the AC series they shouldn't look further than Ezio's storyline.

    Ubisoft didn't step up well after that. They killed off Desmond from the out-of-animus storyline (even though people hate him, he was a relatable character and brought some sense to why we go into the Animus, because he was this random guy that was forced into it, now he's trying to figure out how to get out of it because he has the responsibility to do so), didn't follow well after the Ezio storyline by bringing in dull guys like Conner Kenway (looking back at it now he was alright but man he just didn't connect with me at all, he was just dull in expressing emotions), Haytham was cool but he was a Templar and just became a sideplot really, had great potential but he got sidelined, Edward's story in AC Black Flag was essentially a separate game on its own with some AC mechanics which weren't needed but nobody has made a better pirate game than Ubisoft did with that, and Unity and Syndicate just sucked the life out of me because the characters just weren't that great to start with. At least with Ezio you get the charisma and motivation to why he's chasing the people he's killing.

    Then they took a break and made Origins and Odyssey which is pretty much a shift to Witcher 3 - style gameplay but they just attach an ancient era and nothing even closely related to Assassin's creed. Gameplay wise seems fun, but story is just non-existent.

    TBH they really should stop with Assassin's Creed and just make another series based on Origins and Odyssey, but knowing Ubisoft they'll milk the hell out of the series anyways cause Ubisoft gets rained with money just by doing a different era and placing the same techniques that aren't even suited to Assassins.

      I mean… you went to all that effort, and said pretty much everything I agree with, so I feel I just have to give you an up-vote, I don't have any choice in the matter

      they won't stop using the ass creed title because why would they? name recognition is more valuable than any offshoot they could ever do. This series is awful now, it's just far cry.

      They did change it substantially.
      But it is still a good game (nothing is ever for everyone of course) and selling better than ever.

      It's also much better with the post release support. It allows a lot of customisation in the hack animus mode so everyone can tailor the gameplay more to their taste.

      IMO, Origins was great. Bayek's story was one of the best I have played in recent times. And he was one of the first Assassins and formed the Brotherhood (with Aya). Thus, the title "Origins".

      Odyssey on the other hand was nothing related to Assasins. Alexios and Kassandra were more Mercenaries. The game could have been titled something else easily and still would have succeeded. But as you have said, Ubi had to milk the hell out of the series and they will keep on doing that. Heard that the next AC game is in Viking era…
