By becoming more combat-focused, Assassin’s Creed becomes less like itself.
Last year’s Assassin’s Creed Origins was a leap of faith into risky territory for the franchise, but it ended up paying off. Most people loved the game, including our own Xbox editor Matt Brown, and the addition of systems from other role-playing games (RPGs) offered a new style of play for gamers.
However, while Origins was fun, I don’t think the changes it brought were a good fit for the series. And with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey adding more of these types of mechanics, the problem is only getting worse.
Here’s why I think Assassin’s Creed is losing its identity.
