3. Assassin’s Creed: Origins
Assassin’s Creed fans were worried the series had lost its footing 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 Ubisoft’s franchise 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, and finding out about the origin of the Brotherhood of Assassins sure was a joy here. Also, getting to meet historical characters like Cleopatra and Julius Caesar sure was icing on the cake in what no doubt is one of the best Assassin’s Creed games to date.
