5. Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey
With Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Ubisoft turned Assassin’s Creed into a full-blown RPG. Amongst other things, there were Odyssey’s dialogue choices. This also opened the possibility of choosing whom to romance in-game when playing as either Alexios or Kassandra, the game’s protagonists. Yes, for the first time ever in a major Assassin’s Creed game, you could play the entirety of it as a female character.
And Kassandra could hit as a hard as Alexios in combat for sure. There were also hundreds if not thousands of different armour and weapons to use here, meaning those with an obsessive-compulsive desire to collect all sorts of gear could smile with joy.
Exploring ancient Greece and coming across monuments like the Parthenon was rewarding too. But characters matter more in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, with Kassandra’s mentor Markos, a feisty girl named Phoibe and an odious foe named Deimos helping move Odyssey forward – certainly this is one of the best Assassin’s Creed games to date.
