Assassin's creed is dead

In my opinion, the last "true" assassin's creed game was Revelations. The new games that come out doesn't dare to go as deep into their story as the old games did. I miss the old feeling of being a part of the brotherhood. The most recent games simply seem like AC action/adventure games with no depth or meaning behind them. The newer games doesn't feel like the old assassin's creed at all and doesn't deserve the titles of "Assassin's creed", when it's turned into something else than Assassin's Creed, something bland and mainstream. I'm tired of all the Assassin's creed action figures, the movie, the copious amount of mediocre new AC action games. Either find a way to make the games good again, or move on to another project

    I doubt I will ever buy Origins and Odyssey, they are not AC games anymore and I unfortunately am not a big fan of any other game than Assasin's Creed games. I appreciate the historical facts that are in all of these games but still, the spirit of the games are gone. Player can sense in the game they are made to sell more and more and we all know where it will lead and it can be seen from these games.

      I definitely agree. Unknowingly, I bought both, but none of them are really assassins creed games if there is no creed. My friend hasn't played any other assassins creed game so she is really enjoying ac odyssey, but I was extremely disappointed with both games, because I was expecting a creed in Egypt of Greece.

    To some degree I think all old school fans agree to what you are saying, but it is a business. I'm sure that if they hadn't changed the formula the series wouldn't be relevant anymore or even exist. That being said, I think you are selling Origins short. I think it was a good combination of the old school feel and narrative we are used to with some of the added mechanics the series would later try to employ. The argument that could be made is that it has nothing to do with the assassin's but like I've said on this platform before, the game does deal with a modern assassin setting as well. Even if we don't like it.

    I don’t think Assassin’s Creed is dead as such but you are right with your thoughts though. I would say our beloved franchise is more on life support, at a cross road where it either has the chance to rise up to better things or it will sink down into the damnation of mediocrity. As for the last true assassin creed game, I am not going to say you wrong because judging something to be as such is a subjective consideration ( a matter of personal opinion, in another words). My own personal pick for the last true Assassin’s creed game would be Syndicate. Of all your comments I think this: “The new games that come out doesn't dare to go as deep into their story as the old games did” principally sums up the problem with the direction of the franchise. I have seen a lot of reviews of both Origins and Odyssey which universally seem to say they a both great games being visually stunning and containing excellent production values (i.e. voice acting, historic research etc.) and on the face of it, they are quite right. The thing is though you can NOT review any medium which portrays a story without giving some thought to the story itself. If you don’t look at the story it is like doing a book review based solely on the quality of the books bindings or a movie review on the quality of the movie posters and trailers. If you were really to take the time and consider the line of the story, Templars v Assassins over the centuries and its consequences on earth’s history (past and present), from the first Assassin’s Creed to the current game, hopefully you would see how each game carried the story along. But when Origins came along, this story was more of an afterthought somewhat sacrificed to the need of telling the story of the birth of the Assassin’s order. Origin’s tried to pay homage to the story ark with the use of The Order of the Ancient Ones rather than Templars but they failed to match the evil charm of the Templars story wise. Then along came along Odyssey. More historical soap opera than historical political intrigue. A plodding story which seems to sprout more head than a hydra (and not in a good way) and speaking of which who on earth penned the script? Do a google search of “The history of the word “fuck” and you will see its excessive use in such a historical context is about as inaccurate as a Trump speech. No Assassin’s, only mercenaries and as for the Cult of Kosmos, really? I think Ubisoft went “we can’t pin it on the Templars, it is too early. We can’t use The Order of the Ancients again, can we? Sure, why not? Rehash and rename works wonders!” Sorry for the long winded reply but I am passionate about Assassin’s Creed and I would hate to see it finally cast into the hell of the five dollar bin at the local games outlet because the makers could not draw a line between being lazy and over thinking their product. I will do my bit to keep things going. May the Father of Understanding guide us…..(at least away from this RPG nonsense)
