Video Game Review: Legacy of the First Blade: Hunted DLC

December 27, 2018 | by Mike Chen | Comments Comments Off
Assassin's Creed Odyssey LOTFB1Uncle Samir wants you!

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey did many, many things right — in fact, it was this reviewer’s favourite game of 2018. However, longtime series fans probably noticed that the game didn’t always feel like Assassin’s Creed, and part of that had to do with the lack of the game’s signature weapon: the hidden blade.

That’s remedied in the first major piece of downloadable content for the game, Legacy of the First Blade: Hunted. The DLC takes an Assassin from established canon (longtime fans will find protagonist Darius referenced during Ezio’s adventure in Assassin’s Creed 2) and puts him front and center for three episodes.

This episode takes place in the Macedonia region of the Ancient Greece map (northeast side), giving you about four hours of additional gameplay that ties into the previous Origins game as well as Odyssey. The missions are fairly contained in the region, though they do sometimes feel more like a sampler platter of all the different elements of Odyssey rather than a driven storyline.

While it’s more of the same, the main game was excellent in so many ways that getting bonus time is totally enjoyable. And since Hunted is the first of three episodes, there’s a good chance that Ubisoft designed this initial episode as a mere first step into deeper and richer Assassin’s Creed lore.

So what exactly happens in this episode? From a gameplay perspective, you’re looking at missions very similar to hunting down the Cult of Kosmos, with a side trip out to sea, and overall mission structures that feel a little more like the core of the series.

Also, you can earn a new skill called Death Veil, which then propagates into your player. Death Veil is designed to help your stealthing strategies by causing assassinated bodies to disappear — this is particularly handy in the DLC as it is more traditional series stealth compared to the bulk of the main game.

By the way, you’ll need to be at least level 28 to open up the DLC quests, which means you’ll probably need to have sunk about 25-30 hours into the main game. If you’re into upgrading and crafting, the episode also provides Legendary inventory and unique engravings to earn.

OVERALL (4/5)

While not particularly different, the first episode of Legacy of the First Blade should appease fans of Odyssey who want to hang out with their favorite Misthios — and hardcore fans will appreciate the connective tissue explored with longtime series lore.

Video Game Review: Darksiders III

December 17, 2018 | by Herija Green | Comments Comments Off
Although you do have some flexibility as to what order you tackle some of the Sins in, this is largely a linear game with most of its collectibles tucked around a corner of somewhere just off the main pathway. At around 16 hours (depending on how often you’re killed), Darksiders III isn’t a particularly long game by modern standards, but it’s a good length based on its design.

Video Game Review: The Council – Episode 5

December 12, 2018 | by Mike Chen | Comments Comments Off
Checkmate is a relatively short episode — only about two hours of gameplay, which is shorter than the 3-4 hours of previous episodes. There is a final confrontation, there are some bloodline revelations, and the game’s core mechanic of powers and ability points via an RPG system in an interactive fiction setup, all of that is there.

Video Game Review: Just Cause 4

December 10, 2018 | by Herija Green | Comments Comments Off
One nice quality-of-life change in JC4 is the ability to aim down the sight, replacing the spray and pray approach from previous games in the series with a more precise alternative. While we’re not overly fond of auto-lock, it’s effective here and helps with taking down the multitude of targets you’ll battle simultaneously. There’s a good variety of guns as well, many containing a secondary fire mode for optimal destruction.
