Late Gamer Plays Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey – Legacy Of The First Blade

A Review From Hidai Moya

I was disappointed with this Downloadable Content.
AC fans know that Darius of Persia was the first person to wield the hidden blade & finally having a game that would feature him was something special to look forward to. When he finally appears we get an excellent but far too brief look at his past & then it quickly shifts focus to an uneven story about yet another group of masked baddies, with Kassandra doing all of the action. Ideally this would have solely focused on Darius & his backstory, but instead we get more family drama with him & Kassandra.
Some of the beats later in the story are touching, but meagerly developed. It is also disappointing we do not get any new regions, especially considering that Origins gave us two new maps for each of it’s DLC’s!
I still had some fun with it but this could have been so much more than it was.

Grade B-
