22. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (2018)
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 armor 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.
Came out on: PS4, Xbox One and PC.
23. Assassin’s Creed Rebellion (2018)
Assassin’s Creed Rebellion quickly catches the eye due to its cute art style, and also its production values which are top notch. Plus seeing the Assassin’s headquarters with its different rooms might remind people of Fallout Shelter, a post-apocalyptic mobile game which coincidentally was also made by Canadian team Behavior Interactive.
But while you can train assassins and craft weapons at the headquarters amongst other things, the real fun to be head here is by sending your team of assassins on missions. These missions involve getting through a series of rooms in which you have to resort to stealth, disarm traps, get over obstacles or take guards head on.
This plays like a turn-based squad game, with some assassins in your team being more suited to climbing and assassination (such as Aguilar) while others will be better at disarming traps for instance. This doesn’t mean you can’t pick any character out of your three-man team to disarm traps, it’s just that their chance of success (shown as a percentage onscreen) will be lower. And with dozens of Assassins to unlock as you play, this surely is a mobile game you could be playing for a while.
Came out on: iOS and Android.
