There are 3 main stories that act as a unifying pillar of the whole series of stories in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The first main story about Kassandra’s journey in destroying the Cult of Cosmos & reuniting her family, the story felt very epic & touching, we didn’t even hesitate to call it “one of the most interesting stories in the Assassin ‘Creed series.
Then there is the story of the search for his biological father which is also related to various inheritance of first civillization, the story feels quite interesting, but it doesn’t make sense for connoisseurs of other Assassin ‘Creed series other than the Odyssey. then the last story about modern day with Layla Hassan which feels very lacking and filled with a myriad of plot holes.
Actually the whole story of Assassin ‘s Creed Odyssey looks less plausible when it is connected with other Assassin’ Creed stories. First because the choice matters feature can bring a butterfly effect, meaning that every decision you choose will affect the storyline, which in the end makes the Odyssey with the other Assassin ‘Creed series feel 100% relevant.
The second is because of the various hole plots that exist in modern day, we thought that initially the modern day of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey would continue the story of Layla Hassan who finally met William Miles – father of Desmond Miles, the main protagonist of the initial 5 series of Assassin ‘Creed. But in fact it wasn’t, Layla was told to undergo a new adventure in tracing the memory of the grandson of Leonidas, and finally modern day closed with a story that was very floating and without direction.
The third is the presence of mythological beings in the main story of Kassandra who seeks the truth about her biological father, this actually looks epic & interesting. But it doesn’t make sense to compare it to the other Assassin ‘Creed stories, unlike Assassin’ Creed Origins which presents battles with mythical beings through dreams, illusions, or alternative stories. Now mythological beings appear in the main story through this Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, they come with artifacts like Apple of Eden.
The point is Assassin ‘s Creed Odyssey will feel very epic if you do not care about various plot holes & some of the other shortcomings, but the Odyssey story will feel less “comfortable” for those of you who have followed the entire story of the Assassin’ Creed series.
