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 III: Liberation Remastered

Details: Played about five hours before giving up. Came bundled together with Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Season Pass. Official site is https://www.ubisoft.com/en-us/game/assassins-creed-3-remastered/

Score: 5.6/10

I really wanted to like this game. I forced myself to play through it until I just couldn’t take it anymore. Assassin’s Creed Liberation Remastered may have better textures, but it pains the eyes and mind with it’s lackluster world and boring gameplay.

Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed III: The Tyranny of King Washington Remastered

Details: It was bundled together with Assassin’s Creed III Remastered. This DLC is divided in to three parts. The first part took about two hours, the second part took about one hour, and the third part took about two hours. Official site is https://www.ubisoft.com/en-us/game/assassins-creed-3-remastered/

Score: 6/10

The Tyranny of King Washington is the only story related downloadable content (or DLC) released for Assassin’s Creed III. It’s okay. It’s a story with no real consequence on history or Assassin’s Creed canon.

Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed III Remastered

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/

Score: 7/10

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.

Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: The Fate of Atlantis, Episode 2: Torment of Hades

Details: Played through it in about eight hours. Official site is https://assassinscreed.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/home

Score: 7.4/10

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.
