I've been playing the Assassin's Creed series since the beginning and I genuinely feel it's one of the best-made AAA-title series on the market. Not to say that it's a flawless series (the modern-day metaplot is now a wheel-spinning afterthought, some of the individual episodes are redundant) but I almost always really enjoy my time with them.

Assassin's Creed Origins is ... not like the rest of the series. The result of a year or so off for everyone involved, it ditches most of the stealth and assassinations in favor of straight-up being an open-world RPG with loot, lots of map icons to boop, and a very free and open zone structure. It was... jarring, at first. That said, stealth was still usually an option so I did okay with it.

I've got the DLC for this but haven't even started it yet. The two DLC I'll probably treat as their own game, because past experience has shown me they'll be about the size of a full game put together.

As ever I now want to buy the next game as soon as it comes out.

I really, really, really miss the metaplot. Though some of it was kind of clunky (the whole "search the Abstergo offices ... slowly ... thing ...), it's the thing that really set the game apart for me. Sure, it's mostly fun otherwise, but the metaplot was enthralling. In Origins it barely even reached the level of "afterthought".

Sad. :(
