Likes

  • Now this is how you do a prequel. A great soft reboot of the Assassin's Creed series.
  • A great selection of weapons and RPG elements.
  • The new combat system is another welcome the change. It's not perfect, but it's a lot better than the previous Assassin's Creed titles.
  • A nice levelling system that encourages you to level up before you go to certain areas. #OneHitKill
  • The setting is incredible, and it players like a dream (PS4 Pro), Egypt looks and feels authentic (at least compared to what I imagine Egypt should look and feel like during this time period).
  • The story is well told, and there are some very likeable characters.
  • The way the game is constructed, as well as the content, really encourages you to continue to explore the open world around you after finishing the actual game.
  • The quests are generally more interesting - it's not just a "pick up this, drop it here" any more.

Dislikes

  • The present timeline story is lacklustre and doesn't really tell us enough about what is going on.
  • Some weapons are so powerful that once you acquire them, you won't really want to change, meaning that you probably won't get to try all the weapons. This isn't really a "problem" as such, but they could have balanced it a bit better. I'm nitpicking.
