Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: Judgment of Atlantis

Details: Spent about seven hours playing through it. More information can be found at https://assassinscreed.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/home

Score: 6/10

For the most part, this DLC is lackluster. However, I cannot deny that it’s pretty to look at. The art department knocked it out of the park with Judgment of Atlantis. It’s the writers and scenario makers that sucked ass with this one.

Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey

Details: This is a review for the base game and all the free downloadable content that came with it. Played the game for about ninety hours. Official site is https://assassinscreed.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/home

Score: 8.6/10

The Assassin’s Creed franchise has always been a warm blanket to me. I’m familiar with the tone, the atmosphere, and the gameplay generally established in this series.
