Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey just released, and it is not just one of the best games to play right now, but it is also one that will continued to be played for a while.  This is the eleventh title in the Assassin’s Creed series, with the first one coming out in 2007. Each title is set in a different time period. Odyssey begins in the middle of the Peloponnesian War, which is the ancient war between Athens and Sparta. In the beginning of the game, players have the choice between playing as a male character or a female character. This choice has no real affect to the game, but it does make it a little different than the usual video games. The main character is a mercenary and must make many difficult decisions throughout the game that will determine the ending. Every decision that is made in the game has a consequence. The player might not always see it, but it will eventually come around. This is something that separates the game from others, making the player think through things rather than mindlessly choosing a random option. During the main story line, players will face many challenging combat situations in which they will be forced to choose weapons, armor, and abilities wisely. This open-world game exhibits the true capabilities of what technology can do in the year 2018. The graphics are some of the best yet, making players wonder sometimes if they am playing a video game or watching a movie. This game will bring challenges that most games do not, but they will all be enjoyable and different.  Junior Chase Widmer is impressed with the diversity of the game, “The graphics are amazing and it is a game that anyone can learn, no matter how much you have played before.” This game truly has something for everyone who wants to play, whether one is looking to spend hours on one quest or  just trying to get into the gaming community. I would recommend this game to anyone enjoys spending long periods of time in front of the screen and being addicted to the success of the character, or even to someone who got their first console.

 

NOTE: This game is rated M and contains material that some may find objectionable.
