4. Assassin’s Creed Origins
Fans were worried the Assassin’s Creed series had lost its touch after Assassin’s Creed Unity’s buggy launch in 2014. Meanwhile, 2015’s Assassin’s Creed Syndicate was a solid but unspectacular game. Thankfully, Assassin’s Creed Origins was a welcome return to form for the series after the earlier disappointments.
And Assassin’s Creed Origins not only brought some welcome improvements to combat, its biggest highlight was its ancient Egyptian setting. And the temples, statues and hieroglyphs of ancient Egypt sure looked great here. Arguably, this is the best-looking Assassin’s Creed game to date.
Aside from riding camels through the desert and navigating the Nile, this also had an interesting story to follow. Finding out about the origin of the Brotherhood of Assassins sure was fun here. Also, getting to meet historical characters like Queen Cleopatra and Julius Caesar was icing on the cake in what no doubt is one of the best Assassin’s Creed games to date.
