    Heres the thing.. Origins stutters like a bitch unless it's on a ssd, but oddessy doesn't and it's on the same damn drive. Doesn't make any sense. lol.

    I can attest to the mod though, I'm running origins at 140% of my res (1440) at almost 70 fps on avg

    I did try and move it from my 850 Evo ssd over to my 660p nvme. Both load it so fast that I can't tell the difference. But I also realized that my (16gb) ram was on default 1333 ddr3 speed and not 2133 XMP profile. I suspect it's been like that for a very long time. I also tried overclocking the CPU. (been on default for years) That helped out but Origins is still problematic. Far less problems and for a shorter duration, but still not smooth. Crashes a bit too.

    I also tried the DXVK dll's in my folder and the game would crash before I got to the menu.

    3800x build arrives in a couple days. It'll be interesting to see how this plays next week. Only the 5700 XT will be the same.

    Way late to the party but this is a great game. I'm not a big fan at all of the franchise, but with Odyssey and Black Flag the RPG elements are very good. As some reviewers have said, you could have just dropped AC from the title and just called it Odyssey. On a side note: Ubisoft really needs a new engine. As good as it looks the stutter and hitching is so last gen. Take a lesson from Rockstar when it comes to smooth character animations.

    The combat is very satisfying, I'm going full blown Warrior with my character. And I do have to give props to the voice actor of Kassandra, sounds great.

    What i find most satisfying is the freedom. I mostly dodge and end up exactly where i want to attack another guy before returning to the guy who tried to hit me. Feels like the fight scenes in Troi.

    After i unlocked a 2nd loadout slot i went with an Assassin setup. I use this at night when sneaking into a fortress. Love this game so much. :)

    Also the DLC where you visit Hades the underworld is totally worth it. Feels like playing Diablo in 3rd person.

    I suspect Valhalla will basically be identical to Odyssey only set in a nordic/viking world. Being a cross gen title like Black Flag, its gonna be a mess at launch is my prediction. I can't stress enough that Ubisoft needs a brand new engine for AC and Far Cry.

    Very much enjoying the game. Level 48 so far. Sorting out the inventory, upgrading, engravings, trying to match armor sets, switching out weapons/armor for different enemies and combat at hand can be a very complex and tedious thing. Esp since you are constantly acquiring new gear and have to re-sort and update things so often.

    The amount of content and freedom is really impressive. It really is a great game and will keep me occupied until CyberPunk comes out. I won't count out Ubisoft or discredit them, in fact I am very impressed right now.

    I've given up on Ubisoft...never finished a single game of theirs. They're just too long and filled with a lot of repetition.

    I also thought this game would be long and repetitive and would wear me out, but that hasnt occurred yet (lvl 50). If you dont vary your playstyle, weapons & armor juggling, then yes it would bore me pretty quick. Played mostly using the same weapon (a legendary sword) and combat was becoming too familiar. Then I started mixing up my gear to take on different enemies and applying new engravings, stacking up their values and thats when the game became more interesting to me. Have this legendary battleaxe thats become really fun to use.

    My criticisms of the game is that it felt too 'padded out'. There are some missions that feel unnecessary, like they were just put in there so reviewers could say the game is huge and expansive with over 100+ game hours. Did not like the feeble attempt at story telling and the extended dialogues (which I mostly skipped). The dumb female fake accents seemed like the same woman with the same voice for most of the female NPCs was annoying. Also some male NPCs were annoying as hell too, that gay, cringy Alkibiades character over-extended his presence in the game imo.

    Overall, I like the game quite a bit. The combat is real fun. But yeah, I can see the potential for the game to become tedious or boring if not varying things up to make it more interesting.

    Exactly what i do as well. Got a warrior setup, an Assassin and an archer (to deal with boss animals or go hunting bears etc) in different loadout slots. This is how it's supposed to be played i think, although they only added slots per patch later on. I guess a lot of players were tired of changing individual gear parts around when trying to go stealth instead of brute forcing their way into fortresses.

    Whenever i change loadouts i instantly roleplay a different guy since it's enforced. As an Assassin i can kill a boss with 2 or 3 strikes and captains instantly as long as i'm not spotted. And that's a totally different gameplay than just killing everyone and walking through the front gate.

    Yes I'm quoting myself, I guess that's possible? Odyssey is incredible, and yes I am very late to the party. However there hasn't been a game imo since the Witcher 3 where I can sit and stare at the beauty and sound.

    I'm not an expert on the AC franchise, but I do love the story driven games that aren't as much stealth focused. As some others have said, you could basically drop AC from the prefix and just called it Odyssey and had a great game.

    The stealth element is what you want it to be. You can focus on an Assassin build and the stealth element is enhanced. Or you can do hunter or warrior builds and diminish stealth or ignore it altogether. Personally I go for balanced builds in all 3 areas, but enjoy the stealth parts. Its fun to take out an entire fort with 20 or more combatants one at a time by stealth. I like games that give you plenty of freedom to choose your play style as you see fit.
