Who here’s an Assassins Creed fan?

Postby Great Britain and Irelandia » Fri May 17, 2024 12:27 am

I love assassins creed, although the latest one (Mirage) is not the best.

My favourite is probably Odyssey with its polished visuals, nice merc system and excellent (although sometimes annoying when it comes to medusa and the Artemis quest line) Boss fights and arena.
HOLY JESUS CHRIST WHAT IS THAT!!!

AC4: Black Flag has always been my favourite. It's the first AC game I played so it's got a special place in my heart. I also have some good memories of Unity's co-op, but I didn't really enjoy the story that much

Oh cool! I’m currently actually completing black flag and I’m going to be trying my first legendary ship later today actually, it’s pretty cool going back to the older AC games after playing some of the newer ones.

It's been a while since I did the legendary ships but I remember only starting them when the Jackdaw was almost fully upgraded and still had some trouble with them. I'm dogshit though so I can't say if they're actually that hard.

Haven't really played the new games much though. I liked Origins a lot but haven't played Odyssey or anything that came after... They just haven't really called to me as much as the older games did

Brotherhood was the game that truly got me into the series though I played II prior. Mirage was a good one for me with the callbacks to the original style of gameplay. Nonetheless, Black Flag remains possibly my favorite for the shear scope and gameplay. Mostly for pirates. Storyline was well done, characters were built well and I could easily invest in each character.

I did enjoy Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla, of course. Such a notable change in prior outlines was appreciated, though not always well off. Odyssey would be my favorite of the trio because of Greece. As someone who earned a degree studying Classical Greece and world history as a whole, the era and Ubisoft's take on it had be at the edge of my seat most of the time.

I think the most underestimated game would be Syndicate. The dynamic switch between Evie and Jakob was exemplary. Exploring London at during the Industrial Revolution was a worthwhile treat. Back to the character swapping; two different playstyles - one a slugger - one the more prototypical assassin. I would argue I spent most of my time as Evie though. Her outfit combination and stealthy build gave me a better sense of the assassin I was meant to play.
