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: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

October 12, 2018 | by Mike Chen | Comments (0)
Odyssey also raids the franchise’s own history. Large group brawls over territory came with Syndicate, but here we find armies at war, and the result is bigger than what the Frye twins saw in industrial London. In these cases, the chaotic battle can be visually tantalizing but strategically difficult, and it might take you several times to get through the battle while keeping most of your army alive.

Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered

April 10, 2018 | by Mike Chen | Comments Comments Off
As Rogue came late in the PS3/Xbox 360 cycle, its graphics are natively a tad bit better than the earlier entries in the series. If you put a side-by-side comparison with the original game and this remastered version, however, you’re not going to see much of a difference other than slightly more detail in the lighting and environment effects.

Video Game Review: Shadow of the Colossus

February 7, 2018 | by Herija Green | Comments Comments Off
Running on the PS4 Pro on a 4K TV in Cinematic mode, Shadow of the Colossus steps in as one of the best looking games on the system, which is a testament to the job Bluepoint Games did in rebuilding it from the ground up. The environments are gorgeous, and the way the light streams through the trees as you make your way through a wooded section is a sight to behold.

Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection

December 12, 2016 | by Mike Chen | Comments Comments Off
The Ezio trilogy follows the pattern of most trilogies (original Star Wars, X-Men, etc.) in which the first entry is great, the second is the best, and the third is middling. Each offers slight variations in gameplay mechanics, but the basic franchise thrust of parkour, melee, and random side quests remains the same throughout.
