Assassin's Creed Odyssey - Before You Buy

Assassin's Creed Odyssey (PC, PS4, Xbox One) is the latest AC game, bringing a larger world, the return of ship combat, and more RPG stuff than ever. Is it worth playing? Let's take a look. Subscribe for more: *Jake's twitter: *Instagram:

9 minute video and we still couldn't cover everything - the new mercenary system, the ability to steal stuff, and the photo mode are other things worth checking out.
i think the entire story about the animus died with desmond , at first it was interesting but now its whatever
Ron Swanson
Yeah mom... i chose the hot leather clad assassin woman because of the voice acting...
Carl Loc
Next year we will see Assassins Creed Primal
30 plus hours? More like 100. Be honest guys, this game is B I G

not sure why im watching this when i already bought it
Mr Dub
Odyssey looks really good to me, but i haven't played an AC game since black flag and I don't know if I'd enjoy it again. Thoughts or recommendations anyone?
I love how they are going back further in time, we don't need to be anywhere near the age of gunpowder, also i think going to ancient china or japan for a future game could be very interesting
Just got the game, it was $20 off, gotta love Black Friday
Otoskire The great
The people saying this isn’t an AC game are the same ones who complained to Ubisoft to change the game up after unity
I wasn't sure if i should buy this game or not. But after this video i finally know what to do... I'm going to play the Witcher 3 again.

The game is actually really good
I always watch BYB after I buy cause am a stupid idiot

30+ hours minimum? Try 60 - 70 minimum. Game is enormous with soooooo much to do it’s insane and you get more than your money’s worth when compared to other modern games like shadow of the tomb raider which took me about 22 hours to beat. I just got it used beat it and returned it to gamestop. That’s not an option with this game if you actually want to beat it.

Bought it on blackfriday sale and having a blast Incredible story and gameplay
They need to make an assassins creed game with Ninjas and Samurais. And make it about espionage and family/clan feuds, etc.

This is better than fallout 76
First rule of REAL sword fighting, never drop your weapon (Hollywood fighting also includes spinning the sword in one hand and risk dropping it, a pro would never ever do that) second, never expose your weak points especially your back! Love the game but Kassandra makes these dumb Hollywood spinning moves in combat. Its contrary to any known fighting style to expose your back every three seconds. That lack of realism is annoying and unnecessary and could have easily been avoided. Can anyone help me understand why they implemented an amateur fighting style? Its bugging me.

Odyssey is awesome but as assassin creed fanboy its not ac game its more like rpg

I am absolutely in love with this game is it perfect no but damn near. It's insane to me that so many people cant recognize how much this game has that still makes it assassins creed. You can go 100 percent stealth if you want just build your skill tree in that manner, the story and background still revolves around the ac universe, there is still sycronization spots, you're still an assassin (mercenary is the same thing) and the game still has some historical facts yah alot is just for fun and to work for the story. My point is this is still assassins creed it's just been reinvented to create something so much better. This game feels like a mix of ac, black flag ac, the witcher. Shadow of war and skyrim. You can see influences from many rpg games, while still creating there own that has so many unique qualitys of it's own. Sailing vast seas and exploaring ship wrecks and ancient temples while fighting sharks, Being hunted down by mercenaries, a massive story with tons of options and choices that acctualy impact your world same with side quests, bounties and assassantions along with being able to go to war and choose a side, tons of hidden caves and things to explore in a gigantic map, a skill tree that let's you play how you want and really customize your character, an arena with a horde style mode, tons of gear and wepon choices, being able to customize your boat and upgrade it along with so much more. The fact is this game deserves a 9.5 to a 10 people are made they changed the formula and will talk out there ass to make it seem bad. 90 percent of player reviews that are negative I have read have been total bs and they have not even played the game. People talking about them forcing you to buy micros is bs I have never felt even slightly inclined to do so. The fact is gamers love to hate and bitch about everything anymore even when it's a fucking amazing game like this.

Super Cell
30 hrs? I played black flag for 200 hrs,100% sync. This would take like 500 hrs lol.
Teddy B
I luv assasins creed games and had high hopes for this game but gotta say its a lot like origins and I just wish they will make an assasins creed game with a whole new environment such as New Zealand, Japan or Antarctica
Anonymous Subsriber
The same people complaining that the game isn't "Assassins Creed" are the same people who complained that assassins creed became boring and repetitive. I'm down for the change, welcomed with open arms.
tarun makker
what about , AFTER I BUY , video . lol
lol 30 hours my ass, pretty much only playing the story and a couple side missions i came across it was like 66 hours, just to do the sorry.
Javed Hussain
I was literally on the starting island of the game and I was thinking wow this is still quite big turns out that was like the smallest island region of the around 15-20 regions so yeah the map I s huuge
Lucifer Morningstar
i have 60+ hours in and there are lots and lots of content and they are adding more on this game
Nikola Vekic
Currently $20 at Gamestop my dudes
Hayk Simonyan
U need to watch all "Before U Buy" videos on 1.25x😂😂
Daniel Jurišević
is naval combat obbligatory or SKIPPABLE? I dont like it, moreso, I HATE IT!
I personally don't have an issue with Ubisoft trying something different since the AC games were getting repetitive and stale, but they could've just made it a new IP instead of just calling them the next Assassin's Creed only to try and get more sales based on the franchise's popularity and the AC name. But, it's possible I'm just being overly cynical.
Wise Tiger
I bought the game yesterday it's actually really good
Its Jolly
Just bought the Gold Edition for $40 Can't wait to play Assassin's Creed 3 Remastered
Free Millennial
I’m really liking this game so far. It’s gotta be my favourite one. I like this time period to.
Metal Mayhem
2:00 Back it up. Name one compelling side quest or character in AC: Origins or Odyssey.
Nishant Thapa
Honestly, I just love ancient Greece. Love the myths, so basically I love the game. And I will buy it.
Never tried an AC game before, somehow it didn't interest me from videos. Then started Origins few weeks ago, finished the main quest and side quests but felt like a grind 1/3 the way through. Then I gave Odyssey a shot and man, it feels so different, I'm immersed and enjoy it way more. The added features makes Origins absolutely barebone and repetitive compared to this
Aaron McCullen
Love this game. Also you are one of my go to game reviewers. You give some good personal impressions, give good facts, and gameplay footage. It's a good description of games
Phil The Thot Destroyer
idk why i always watch these after buying games
Never Not Phil
I love Origins and specifically the main Character, and whoever the fuck did the voice was phenomenal. With Odyssey's much more difficult trying to play as Alexios when his voice acting is so stale and robotic. Literally zero emotion, granted I'm very early in rank 3 early. We'll see..
Rohit Mapakshi
I'm kind of missing the current world stuff happening in the AC universe.
Joseph Stalin
The game is so fucking good. I love it. Like all AC games the story made me fall in love. The game is just good in general.
Is it worth getting now on black friday sale, for 40,19€?
Bogdan Ristea
I agree with you, I'm also a fan of the creed games which are set around 1700s to 1900s.
Save PewDiePie
Alexios voice acting isn't nowhere near as bad as the Witcher
8-bit Blade
I was kinda worried when they made AC into a RPG but after playing Origins I really like the style of it and I think I might pick up this game too because I really enjoyed Origins RPG like system.
Ethan Emter
BYB fan tip: The saving system is kinda broken. I just lost 6 hrs of progress
I really wish they'd just make a new ip instead of clinging to the AC title. I lost interest in the AC lore after 3. Just call this game Odyssey and go nuts.
Eye Ore
I love this game. Now that I spent 30 hours on it, I want to start over and try a different path. the only thing is, I cant figure out how to to drop from a cliff top and climb down on the PC. Everything people have said do not work for me.
Joshua Tyler
30 hours? More like 100+ to do everything.
Monotone Romance
I just got the game and I only paid $20, totally worth it
Shamal Kumar
Watching this after putting 87 hours into the game already lol
Loving this game, already got 10 hours in and can’t wait for more :P (Only got it Friday night)
Jordan Justus
I’m a day one AC fan, been playing since 2009 when AC1 dropped, and I gotta say, I extremely disagree with you about the modern day aspects. Unity had the least amount of modern day, Odyssey has had some of the most modern day gameplay since black flag
Tlot Pwist
The warrior tree is prettymeh. Hunter/assassin way above
I've put 20 hours into this game, not even a quarter way through the campaign yet, tons of content
FoolHardy Queso
Im gonna buy it tomorrow because of this video
Me: bro before you buy i wanna tell you something Bro: what? Me:Its good buy it🙂
I would love for them to return to the urban gameplay, more modern. Paris in Unity was great
Filly P
Ended up getting the gold edition for $20 on Xbox
I'm with Rad. A Samurai-Themed Assassin's Creed would be pretty lit.
Mihir Patel
It's $20 now on Amazon btw
Got it for 30$ on pc. Looks great, runs well, super fun(rx580 and ryzen 3 medium/high settings)
Game is way better then Zelda but that's my opinion.
Ashton Evans
I started playing it recently and i am with you about the parrying freaking fighting a legendary boar and the delay is killing me (literally)
Mr. Froztyyz
*3:35* Did you just say “Addictive Gayplay or gameplay? 🤣
Kevin R. Achneepineskum
Game crashes, bugs, and glitches out every now, and then. But still worth getting...
Downtown Flex
I'd 100% buy this game if it had a first-person mode. Idk why but I just CAN'T play in third-person anymore. It just takes me out of the experience.
Ares Viveros
I waited for black Friday bought it for $27
Emelio Brown
I might be the only one, but I’m having a lot of fun with the game.
Fionn Moules
I've spent 35 hours on the game so far and I'm only 32% complete I could easily get up to 150hours
Samurai Gaming
I killed the whole population of Kephallonia because I saved a family😁
Cj Beagle
There is no game like witcher. Nothing can compare
Chase Austin
This game has consumed my life since I bought it.
The worst part is that this game looks good enough to stand on its on, there was no need whatsoever to call this AC. No hidden blades, no creed, no templars, no desmond, no the robes, not even acting in the shadows wend the most heavily advertised feature it's the war battles. What's the point of pretending this is AC
The Rageaholic
THREE HOUR OPENING!?!?! Jesus how bad are you!?!?
You thought AC Unity was bad , Pfft !! You ain't seen Nothing yet 🤢😨🤢😫
That was very Cash money
I haven't played AC since rogue and black flag, so it took some getting used to, but it was really fun
Furkan Turfanda
I want a more cohesive story arc across games, and I want a return to historical accuracy/realism. Other than that, I think it was inevitable that AC turned into an RPG series, and I enjoyed Origins (and will later this year purchase Odyssey). The Ezio trilogy will always be the best though (and Black Flag, because... pirate ships).
I would KILL for an Assassin's Creed set in the Regency era
"Assassin's Creed Odyssey - After You Buy" title. is fixed.
Cant forget that for pc players, this is poorly optimized lol
100% agree on more modern-day stuff, like on the ac3 or brotherhood level. I still want a modern-day ac game as well.
From my experience its pretty good and at this point they should lose the "Assassins Creed" brand.
Much much better than the witchers, like by far (in terms of scenery)
30 + hours? im at 96+ hours in origins. Some like to rush stuff.
I talk Apex legends
I bought this game new for 20’$ at GameStop
Nickster Studios
i got the game, not a huge fan of the ship stuff. mostly like to stay on land.
I havent played assassins creed since black flag..... 5 YEARS, and i played all the others on launch growing up. I saw origins last year and it looked cool but didnt pick it up. I got Odyssey on the 2nd with the three day early access and my god. I love it, it really feels like assassins creed but extremely modernized and i love the ancient Greece setting. I will be buying AC on launch now like the good old days. Feelsgoodman
Benjamin O'Connor
Jesus, thanks for this video. Really great to see a positive review on this game. I need to completely change my view on this game so I am finally. Going to play Uncharted 4 again.
RGaming 103
I'm loving the new direction they've been taking with Assassin's Creed since Origins and now Odyssey!
Bennett Rofsky
consistently skeptical about every AC game since revelations (except black flag)
In german the voice acting is really good [for me] :)
The first time i"m actually watching before I buy
LongLiveSkinny 23
Just bought this game for $30 bucks on Black Friday 🤘🏼
Scott Epley
I got the gold and I’m about to get ac3 remastered and ac liberation remastered
Thanks for your amazing review. Your reviews are always very informative and in-depth. I do have to mention though and this isn't just you but also other casters, I feel like you guys never get into talking about the leveling system, which to me is one of the most important component of a game, like grinding for gear. Hey keep it up hope to see your review on "Days Gone" once it releases, all the best!
God you haters are like old heads... But like for assassin's Creed lol. I personally like the game.
