    Ubisoft have still not understood what made the first few AC games great.
    I felt no connection with the Egyptian one and now there's a Greek one!

    " with dialogue options for the first time, and allow play as new male or female protagonists." but .. wasnt ac about history? wheres the history immersion if you play as a custom character? and dialogue options means multiple endings for quests... again... changing history..

    AC:Origins was the best Assassin's Creed in years, and was a much-needed refresh in both style and substance. No more downright terrible combat with zero depth, character progression that feels like an accomplishment instead of just unlocking the ability to carry/throw/shoot more. And the story was the best installment since..well, since they were on the rails a bit ha. I loved the big reveal, how they're the first, and how they're now going to go and spread out, affecting the varied empires that were around in ancient times, it's way WAY cooler than "oh look, there's randomfamousperson, I guess he helped the Assassins. Kinda neat".

    I felt more connection with AC:O than I did with the crappy siblings in the previous one lol.

    Discovery Tour for Odyssey also. Ubi needs to make it a thing for these AC games.

    It was about injecting a fictional organisation of assassins into roughly historical events. Not exactly "history immersion".

    I've enjoyed them all in their own way and I'm sure I will enjoy this one.

    Maybe to a degree, but like BF5, it might have historical elements, but game play takes first priority.

    I personally actually like the direction people are taking with games these days, though they shouldn't market games as historically accurate, in all honesty no one would enjoy a 1:1 historically accurate game, since they are usually either too brutal, boring or unattractive.

    I have just got around to playing the new AC and they are already releasing another or at least teasing. I'm enjoying the recent trend of including historical elements in games but like others have mentioned. Overall gameplay should take a massive priority.
