Assassin's Creed Origins

Keeping The Faith By Questioning It
by Suriel Vazguez
Concept:

Revamp the most outdated aspects of Assassin's Creed while introducing the series' most sprawling, beautiful locale yet


Graphics:

Egypt's deserts, canyons, and oasis towns look -gorgeous. Some framerate slowdowns occur during cutscenes, however, as well as a few hitches lasting for as long as three seconds


Sound:

The sound design is as sharp as ever, from the sword clangs of combat to the bustling cities


Playability:

Combat and stealth see some welcome improvements, and the larger world serves the series' sense of exploration well


Entertainment:

Expanded progression, open-world freedom, and a fascinating backdrop make for an enticing origin story


Replay:

Moderate

Though Assassin's Creed has experimented with tower defense, grappling hooks, and naval combat over the years, it isn't always quick to evolve. Changes to mission design, combat, and exploration are staggered across separate entries, which dulls the impact of any one change. With an extra year of development to question what makes the franchise great, Assassin's Creed Origins implements sweeping changes in every department, reworking or cutting worn-out features and building new ones in their place. These changes come with some growing pains, but result in one of the largest, most open-ended entries in the series.

Origins chronicles the foundation of the Assassins and their conflict with the Templars (called the Order of the Ancients) in Ptolemic-era Egypt. You take the role of Bayek, a military scout hunting down members of the Order who've killed his son. Bayek is a strong lead who sits at a comfortable midpoint between the playfulness of Ezio and the brooding over-seriousness of Connor. The supporting cast is great as well, and several moments build on his relationships with his community, family, and friends across Egypt in ways that flesh out his character. Bayek's wife, Aya, steals every scene she's in, and the story explores their relationship in ways that made me miss her when she and Bayek are apart.

While the heroes stand out, the villains tend to bleed into one another a little too quickly. Major targets feel like stepping stones rather than enemies you can take true pride in killing. Assassinating them is still satisfying, but only because the hunt itself is usually fun, not because Bayek's hatred for them comes across through the storytelling. A couple of major targets, like the Scarab and the Hyena, provide some great moments as they chew scenery, complicate their roles as villains, and provide context for why they joined the Order, but their arcs go by too quickly, and they're quickly supplanted by new targets.
