Assassin’s Creed franchise isn’t well-respected among players due to its lack of innovation and bugs that make those games nearly unplayable. The first several games achieved great success as they brought new features and exciting settings in every release.

That changes several years ago as this company started releasing one or two Assassin’s Creed games every year. The result of that decision was the lack of new features and a lot of bugs that plagued the franchise up to this day. Whether the issues from the past will ruin the latest addition to the franchise is the subject we will discuss.

Assassin’s Creed Origins – Changes to gameplay?

Assassins CreedThe majority of the previous games in this franchise had the same gameplay, and the Origins suffer the same fate. That is the primary reason for the hate this franchise gets, and it seems that the Ubisoft decided to change little to improve it on this title. Don’t get us wrong, some changes are quite refreshing, but whether that is enough is up to you to decide.

Dodging, blocking and attacking mechanics in the Origins is same as in previous Assassin’s Creed games. If you aren’t a fan of that, then don’t expect to like fighting mechanics in the latest game in this franchise.

The significant change in the Origins is the upgraded AI, which might modify the way some people look at Assassin’s Creed. In previous games, the enemies would approach you one by one, and that made brawling quite easy and boring. But, in the Origins the enemies will swarm you and attack together, and that makes fighting two or more opponents at the same time quite challenging.

Origins – Is it worth the full retail price

Origins, like every other Assassin’s Creed game, come at the full retail price and whether it is worth it or not is up to you. You can already preorder the game, but that isn’t a smart thing to do considering the lack of success and bugs that plagued previous games in the franchise. Wait for some reviews after it comes out to see whether is worth the investment.
