Assassin’s Creed Odyssey review scores – our round-up of all the critics

Assassin's Creed Odyssey Review round-up

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is out later this week, but before players are able to get the game in their hands, it’s time for review scores. The latest iteration in Ubisoft’s long-running franchise takes the action to Ancient Greece, far before the events of last year’s Egyptian outing.

We haven’t reviewed Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, but Harry checked the game out during Gamescom earlier this year. In his preview, he praised the depth and complexity of the game’s side quests, which he says are far richer than what was on offer in Origins.

That depth seems to have paid off, as Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s review scores are currently sitting at a pretty healthy 87 on OpenCritic, and the PS4 scores on MetaCritic (at time of writing, the PC scores haven’t all come through) average out at the same figure. That’s a few points higher than what Odyssey managed last year. In fact, that score would seem to make Odyssey the best Assassin’s Creed game since 2010’s Brotherhood, which posted an average score of 89 across PC and consoles.

Without further ado, it’s time to check out the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey review scores. Unless otherwise stated, reviews were based on PC versions of the game.

GamesRadar+: 5/5
USgamer (PS4): 4.5/5
VideoGamer: 8/10
IGN Spain (XB1): 9/10
God Is A Geek (PS4): 8/10
GameSpot: 8/10
GameInformer (PS4): 83/100
Eurogamer: Recommended
Forbes: 85/100

It’s a stack of pretty impressive scores for Odyssey then – the lowest figures I’ve seen are around the 7/10 mark, but those are in the extreme minority. Most scores come in somewhere around an eight or a nine, and GamesRadar offers a very impressive five star score. Some of those results must be down to the fact that Assassin’s Creed Odyssey lets you climb a god’s penis. I can forsee no other reason for such impressive scores.

The Assassin’s Creed Odyssey release date is October 5, but some of you will have access to the game from tomorrow thanks to various pre-order and special edition bonuses.
