Assassin’s Creed Origins is the revitalisation I was desperately hoping for. My cautious optimism has been rewarded by an excellent open-world adventure that could lead to an exciting future for Ubisoft’s blockbuster franchise.

This is also the biggest and most connected map we’ve seen in an Assassin's Creed game. Even the seemingly-empty desert regions having their own treats, like the breathtaking view from the highest elevation point, with an impressive draw distance, whether you’re playing on Xbox One X or PlayStation 4.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is what happens when you make a game without a vision for how players are supposed to engage with it.
- Digital Trends
A huge open-world map and very engaging storyline. Combat is more demanding and dynamic than in previous entries of the series. Very few bugs since the day one patch. Excellent graphics, with a 4K option.
- BestReviews
Its open world isn’t…well honestly, this might actually be one of the most impressive virtual spaces I’ve ever seen, so credit where it’s due there.
- Forbes
Unsurprisingly, the playground Ubisoft has built in Assassin’s Creed Origins is visually stunning. It always is.

The biggest change the improvement group has consolidated is a more unmistakable move towards an RPG.

Egypt is a beautifully realized setting, showing off distinct cultures and activity
- GameSpot
This is a space of loveliness, a work of art. If you ever wanted to step into the distant past, into a simulation of ancient life, here it is. From marble palaces to mud-hut hovels, from dead carcasses to soaring aqueducts, this Assassin’s Creed overachieves on looks.

Egypt itself is the star of the show, Ubisoft having meticulously crafted a stunningly detailed and varied landscape.

Assassin’s Creed Origins’ greatest success is its setting. While obviously condensed when compared with its real-life counterpart, the game’s version of ancient Egypt is stunningly rendered and eminently explorable.
- Kotaku

No matter the amount of weaponry, Assassin’s Creed Origins is still very much a stealth game, where sneaking is the optimal route to success.
- Game Axis
Revamp the most outdated aspects of Assassin’s Creed while introducing the series’ most sprawling, beautiful locale yet

This is where this add-on gets to really commit to the idea of Egyptian mythology, and it makes good on the opportunity.

What experts didn't like
It’s a shame the narrative eventually jumps the shark, or this could have been something truly special.

Finally, a glaring technical issue ultimately holds the combat back. When fighting, you can click down on the right analog stick to target an opponent, focusing the camera on them.
- Digital Trends
Outside of main missions, quests tend to be very repetitive – more so than in other open-world games like GTA V. Loot-finding is far too easy.
- BestReviews
However, while details are rich they’re inconsistent. I have yet to encounter any mind-boggling bugs in Assassin’s Creed Origins but there are distracting inconsistencies in facial animations and voice acting.

I am not even gonna bother reviewing this game in depth because of its a disgrace, and feels like it has been made only so Ubisoft could monetize loot boxes…!

Some regions and areas are disappointingly sparse
- GameSpot
Having said that, the controls are a little clunky, and, on rare occasions, they can feel frustratingly unresponsive.
- Push Square

As a result, combat can feel rubbery and frustrating. That’s rarely much of an issue when fighting ordinary grunts, but can become a real pain during the setpiece boss showdowns that punctuate each act.
- Kotaku

Sadly, the system has a few issues that still need to be worked on. Your weapon strikes don’t have the weight and feel you’d expect because the moves don’t convey their lethality well; attacks that look like they should decapitate or dismember don’t, making it seem as if Bayek is mauling people with blunt blades.
- Game Axis
Some framerate slowdowns occur during cutscenes, however, as well as a few hitches lasting for as long as three seconds
