Details: Played on the PC for about 26 hours. This is just a review of the base game, not of the King Washington DLC or of Liberation. Got the game along with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Gold Edition. Official site is https://www.ubisoft.com/en-us/game/assassins-creed-3-remastered/
Back when Assassin’s Creed III was released, I remember reading a lot of critique about the game. The general online consensus was that it changed too much and that the story was weird as were the performances. Personally, I vaguely remember playing the game, but from what I do remember, I enjoyed it. Fast forward to today and I am once again reminded why I enjoyed the game so much. In a word, it’s the story.
Details: Beat the main quest in about forty-two hours. I played for about another twenty hours going through post game content and catching Pokemon. Official site is https://www.pokemon-sunmoon.com/ultra/en-us/
While Pokemon Sword and Shield is slated to come out in the near future, the current most recent Pokemon game is Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. These two games are not full sequels, but upgraded remakes of the regular Sun and Moon games. I didn’t play the original Sun and Moon so I found this game a new, yet familiar experience that was really fun for a nostalgic old Pokemon player like myself.
Details: Played through it in about eight hours. Official site is https://assassinscreed.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/home
Torment of Hades is the second episode of The Fate of Atlantis DLC and takes your protagonist to the Greek Underworld. Though the world is slightly smaller than the world in Episode 1, the writing is a little better and contributes to an overall better experience.
Details: Played through the game in about twelve hours. More information can be found at https://www.ubisoft.com/en-gb/game/assassins-creed-origins/ and https://store.ubi.com/ie/assassin-s-creed–origins—the-curse-of-the-pharaohs/5a9d712c88a7e30993e580c1.html
Curse of the Pharaohs is the last piece of downloadable content (or DLC) for Assassin’s Creed: Origins. There’s so much more to this downloadable content that it borders on being called an expansion rather than DLC. Curse of the Pharaohs introduces a few new beautiful areas to explore and a few new bosses to fight as well. The story goes more into the history of Egypt, but not of its protagonist, Bayek, unfortunately.
Details: Spent about six hours playing through this. More information can be found at https://www.ubisoft.com/en-gb/game/assassins-creed-origins/ and https://store.ubi.com/ie/assassin-s-creed-origins—the-hidden-ones/5a5e11ee88a7e3b6351233e3.html
The Hidden Ones is a piece of downloadable content (or DLC for short) that adds a new area to Assassin’s Creed: Origins. It’s relatively short and doesn’t add anything to the gameplay. Otherwise, it’s fine.
