  • great review :)

  • This review doesn't give justice to the game if I could give 8 thumbs down for this vid, I would

  • If you want to explore don't highlight stuff on the map and find them yourself. That's a choice. Ign griped at that too. Petty!!

  • I’m sorry, did this man just say hephastitus?

  • The most underrated game of 2020!

  • I love when a game doesn't take itself very seriously just like this one, all those jokes and "deliberately" corny narration is just nice laugh material, it's like playing Monty Python's Greek version

  • Got this game today for 15 bucks it's a 40 hour game am all in!

    • @Marco Otero best buy they have it on sale now for 39.99 and i got a 25 dollar gift card it came out to be 15 dollars!

    • Where

  • So this game is on the same level as cyberpunk? Gamespot has became such a joke

  • hm, cant you just not do the scouting thing on the towers ? feels like its way better when you just explore the world by yourself like in botw

    • you can it's actually not necessary if you don't want to

  • UbiCreed: Farts in the Wild

    • @Striker Bowls It was a description of the game, not a joke.

    • Not funny didn't laugh

  • Easy 8+ for me. This is miles better than AC and has actually fun combat, abilities and puzzles

    • Valhalla is better lol

    • @Slice Of Life 1985 They are kinda hard to compare but I'd say the only chance Valhalla could be better is if it's your first AC game. I skipped Odyssey but played Origins and I still find it hard to spot any noticeable differences lol. Combat feels somehow even worse than the 2017 experimental AC game. It's not a bad game but considering their budgets it just feels like a lazy work. Immortals on the other hand has pretty great combat, abilities that blend into combos and it has miles better exploration and traversal. At least it's something new from Ubisoft.

    • nah valhalla is better

  • Amazon should be delivering today, can't wait

  • No one: How can you make a different game but still the same and nothing new? Ubisoft: Say no more fam.

  • i disagree about zeus and prometheus their narration is one of the best parts of the game for me.

  • [+]

  • Feels like the first God of War X Zelda BOTW

  • Breath of the Wild + Greek Mythology =Immortals Fenyx.

  • Thanks for a simple review that makes it obvious that I might want to get it on special to play on the PC. Puzzle games are not my thing - I like tomb raider style puzzles though, have never played Zelda as I don't own consoles. (not owning a console isn't a PC better or worse thing - just a money thing - yes I feel like I've missed out on Zelda) I love Greek myths - so the game sounds and looks solid. But looking at your review I'd guess a year from now if I can get it at 50% off I will enjoy it. But that is what reviews are for - deciding what games I can't wait for. :)

  • So we all simping for Breath of Hyrule Walmart version?

  • I know this borrows heavily from Breath of The Wild, so I have to ask...does this game have a deteriorating weapons system or a designated button to throw your f$#&ing sword?...those 2 features made BOTW an absolute headache Edit: I just found out that those features are not in this game...brownie points for this game 👍

    • @The Random D I can respect that...i just hit that button on accident sometimes, and find that annoying...but thats just me

    • @Lord Impaler it is optional so it’s easy to ignore. Personally I never found it annoying but actually cool but that’s my opinion.

    • @The Random D Its just an annoying feature to me

    • What’s wrong with throwing a sword?

  • Just so everyone knows, the high ground scouting for stuff is COMPLETELY OPTIONAL, if you don't wanna do it then just simply don't do it. The feature is there for people who don't like to spend a bunch of time figuring out where the stuff they want is.

    • @Frog You're absolutely right. I don't know why it's a complaint when there is a convenience to prevent me from looking it up online anyway. I had to look stuff up while playing Breath of the Wild too

    • This is synonymous with saying that weapons are completely optional in Dark Souls.

  • Really fair review, im switching back to gamespot

  • Honestly this game seems pretty fun though like all Ubisoft games, some people will like it some won’t

  • So....Ubisoft BOTW.

  • The name change hurt the game itself

  • LOL, what's going on? I've seen no footage of the guy character. Did they scrap him?

    • @May May Yes but can you choose any of the other 800 genders?

    • You can choose between male and female character and you can change anytime

  • GameSpot reviews.........amirite..... eh?......eh?

  • This is just shittier botw. Wow.

  • Seems like platformers are the thing for beginning consoles. The graphics make the simple mechanics shine. Something like this on PS4 won't even be worth a second look though.

  • Realistically - It's a 8/10. If you like BOTW or didn't get to play BOTW because you don't have a Switch, This is your game.

    • @HeroKane thank Christ for herokane, the last bastion of reality

    • @Frog Well, professional reviews have gone down hill a lot these last few years. So someone has to do there jobs correctly.

    • Thank God, it’s HeroKane, here to set in stone the reality of the situation for the career reviewer

    • Definitely, this is the game that got closest to breath of the wilds formula so if you liked the original you’ll most likely like this game

  • Why cnt i have zelda on Ps4

  • Gamepost reviewing Conker and Portal 2: "it's hard to take these characters seriously"

  • Hephastitus? Sounds like a sickness. Its Hephastus.

  • This guy says end game is easy. IGN said it’s too hard 😂

    • Well when u think about it.... IGN's gameplays are usually crap xD

  • Idk why the thumbnail reminded me of metro exodus

  • This game looks like it was made for 10+ kids I’m good lol

  • BOTW Sure is very popular, first Genshin Impact now this? Interesting, can't wait for next games that take take "inspiration" from BOTW.

  • That game will better for kids during Christmas

  • Basically Fortnite meets LOZ = nice try.

  • Are we too old for these corny ass jokes?

  • Honestly playing it now on ps5 and if it would be nintendo game it would get an 8 or 9. Yes Iam a fan of botw.

  • Breathe of the wild 2 looks good

  • Waiting sale looks good not big fan of puzzles

  • Go watch skillup's review, covers so much more than this half arsed review.

    • @Sid R. you missed the whole point. I'm interested in the game but gamestops review is way too short for a game like this at least with skillup you get a lot more details on gameplay, mechanics etc etc, which I very much appreciate as it would help me decide to purchase or not.

    • this game is cheeseball as fuck. Skillup liking the cheese doesn’t make it anything more than an average game.

    • yea just checked skills up review, damn good.

  • Is it bad that I want to pick this up more than cyberpunk? Like, I wanna wait til cyberpunk is $20 but this gets my immediate attention? Its just cyberpunk seems like just a lot of walking around talking to NPCs and those games bore me to death. I prefer immediate gameplay over story, more gameplay than story.

  • 10/10 pure 💩

  • Man all of this reminds me of good old days with Dark Omen Soul Reaver on Dreamcast.. Too bad all of these kind of games today are all cutesy style and nothing dark and horrific =(

    • I remember when I was a little kid begging my mom for that game when we were at Best Buy and she was like hell no this looks too violent and scary lol

  • The way Fenyx jumps off a cliff and paraglides their way down is just full of the regularity of a Greek Demi-God

  • I thought this game took inspiration from odyssey? Yet everyone says it's breath of the wild?

    • @Machine not only that. Some gameplay elements too are similar.

    • Because the artstyle is similar to breath of the wild

  • You know you could choose to not mark everything? Personally I love the hand holding but even in Assassins creed I avoid the vantage points in some areas for a different experience. In this game you can just climb the vantage point and go down after the map becomes coloured

  • every new video game is the same variation of of like 5 different famous video games now

  • Zelda rip off

  • Isn't him marking objectives on the map his decision and NOT a gameplay design?? If he wanted to explore then couldnt he just have explored and not mark it on the map? These reviews man

    • @Lucian Jefernein maybe bro idk

    • @The Man With No Name it is though? Neither is a gameplay design or necessity and you can turn both off. But, it is going to take away a lot from your experience just by being in the game. If you don't mind it, then good for you, the game is pretty nice to pass the time. But, it is honestly a turn off for many people.

    • @Lucian Jefernein lol come on thats not the same

    • @The Man With No Name so is auto play in mobile MMOs.

    • @Lyn its a gameplay design to help players. But its not the same as a game mechanic required for the game to play as intended.

  • The video's description mentions the Playstation 4 twice.

  • *Creed Icarus: Breath of the Dauntless*

  • I still prefer Darksiders 2

    • I accidently deleted my save file for that game trying to move storage file to external. My whole heart broke and my soul left. Sooo mamy hours for nothing

  • more checklist gaming, more of a chore than fun

  • so it's a poor man's zelda?.. got it

  • Very Good

  • There’s actually a mode for those who want to feel that exploration, which will remove the icons and much of the classic Ubisoft stuff.

    • I mean how hard is it to just not push the button when the word "reveal" pops up. I'm around 25 hrs in and I have only used it a couple of times. Plenty of exploring on my adventure so far

    • Thanks! I was just about to ask this question. So you really get to choose how you want to play it. Removing all the guides should add a ton of hours to the game.

    • Turning off icons is not the same as designing a game around exploration . . .

    • @Scott Kelley me too.

    • I like that classic Ubisoft stuff. I spent 105 hours in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey with the normal “Ubisoft stuff” still on. I wouldn’t want to add 25 or 50 hours on top of that in exploration mode. Just me.

  • assassın s creed,god of war and zelda threesome...

  • LOL Upgrades too strong? Who the fuck complains about being MORE powerful?

  • If they made this game. why did they destroyed assassin's creed 😤

  • 7 is not bad of a score. A game scored 7 can still be enjoyable and this one looks like it . Too bad it has microtransactions....at least they are cosmetics only

  • Assassin's breath of the Wild: Odyssey

  • Refreshing?? LMAO

  • IGN gives 7 Gamespot gives 7 AC valhalla : IGN gives 8 Gamespot gives 8

  • How about 60 fps for PS 4 Pro ?

  • Immortals of War: Assassins of the wild

  • 7 out of 10 I thought this one was good compared to anything ubisoft put out this year

    • Valhalla is the best of ubisoft this year

  • I get what your saying, its not a great game, but it will entertain you for a few days until Cyberpunk drops

    • @Dave Page the last update made it look a little better on series X but I think it needs about 4 or 5 updates to be good on consoles for real lol

    • @Bigg Country Even on series x it's bad? Geez. I'll wait for a dedicated fixed version. Maybe.

    • @Dave Page it was horrible on series x but I bought it again on PC 10/10 bro lol

    • And about that Cyberpunk dump...

  • Lol I've watched reviews that say: the story/dialogue is fun and engagin the story/dialogue is messy and corny/bad the puzzles are the highlight the puzzles are too easy the combat is satisfying the combat is too easy I am....intrigued

  • "Exists in the shadows of better games" Exactly the review I expected for this game. Not bad by any means, just not as good as the material it borrows from.

    • Yeah for this reason I think I'll be waiting to get it until it goes on sale.

    • Not worth playing then?

  • can you change the field of view ?

  • So basically you gave the game a 7 because you added the markers to your map, which I am assuming is optional?

    • @Katie Egervari well, to be fair these games are generally reviewed by different people at the company but I concur. Also it seems like Gamespot’s employees specifically never like the genre of the games they’re reviewing lmao.

    • @Alex Townley Yeah, what a terrible review. SkillUp and ACG had glowing reviews of this game, and actually praised it for the opposition things. It is annoying when the same outlet gives Valhalla 8/10 when it has a much worse map marker problem and you have auto-highlight abilities to basically solve all the world interactions for you... and let's not forget all the same-y bloat that takes almost 100 hours... yet it gets an 8. These mainstream reviewers are a joke. No consistency.

    • Yes it is

  • Souless breath of the wild

  • I prefer this one than valhalla to be honest, getting sick of AC lol

  • Basically don’t buy this at full price

    • Your right i got this today for 15 bucks on Ps5!

  • Ign: good story, lame puzzles Gamespot: lame story, great puzzle At least they both agree it's a 7 lol

    • Honestly for this kind of game the gameplay should be the main factor like botw sobad puzzles are a terrible sign

  • This game actually looks good but I’m not gonna pay full price for it

    • @Dogs and Gooses forever like I said I like the game personally, I’m about 40 hours in and I still enjoy it but I get where people come from if they don’t like the game

    • @Classic Shotgun Im only 3 hours into immortals but i like it alot so far

    • @Classic Shotgun Personally took me 10hours to get bored of valhalla Downgraded facial animation and unsatisfying combat made it unplayable for me

    • @Dogs and Gooses forever ehh they’ve actually been doing better then normal at making games recently, but I do believe it’s just personal preference on if you like the games or not like I thought ac Valhalla was worth the 60$ price tag but some people didn’t like it which is understandable so it really just depends

    • You should always just pay 15$ for ubisoft games using ubisoft+ , ubisoft very rarely make a game worth 60$

  • If Immortals fenyx rising came out 1st before Legend of zelda breath of the wild it would be a different story. The narrative would be legend of zelda copies Immortals fenyx rising

  • It’s hard to take them seriously... nothing gets by you!...

  • Yet cyberpunk with get a 10.

  • I’ll be picking this up in the new year, after I’ve finished cyberpunk and Valhalla

    • @Cornelius Dines So far Valhalla has been surprisingly good and with absolutely no other game out there catering to those of us who love viking themed media, it's a love note and a blessing. Cyberpunk looks like it COULD be a set-up for mass disappointment, especially going by some of what's been talked about recently, cut content, rough around the edges, somewhat still unfinished. Hopefully it doesn't fall victim to hype and it is as good as we hoped (even though first person perspective is lousy). Judge when they're released.🤷🏻‍♂️

    • @Cornelius Dines well there both games and people are allowed to like both games, me personally I like ac Valhalla but I already know I won’t like cyberpunk because it doesn’t look fun to me but we can all have our preferences

    • valhalla and cyberpunk should not be in one sentence

  • Wow you even made a female Zelda! /s

  • Wtf gamespot.. ?? U liked the puzzles ? Now that i take another good look here..its like the dude from Assasin odyssey had a baby with a woman who her father was genshin impact and her mother zelda.. 2020 the year of remakes remasters and recycles...i guess only cyberpunk deserves our pennies this year.. everyone else should go bankcrupt.. you thieves.

  • So basically a generic and shitty ubisoft open world game but this time copied from zelda?

  • Eww. A guy playing as girl character, that's always a good sign /s

    • What would you rather be looking at?

    • I see it every. Fucking. Time. Guys playing as girls

  • Review short version: wait for a discount.

    • or just dont buy it and save your money, conSOOOOOOOmer

    • So basically a normal Ubisoft game some will like it and some won’t

  • I'm not a fan of the UI style, but besides that this looks decently fun!

    • You can turn off many UI elements in the options 😁

  • Gamespot needs to hire better reviewers. Ghost of Tsushima, Spider Man Miles Morales, and Immortals all get 7s?

    • In my opinion, I think Ghost of Tsushima rightfully deserves a 7. For me, the story was pretty flat and many of the characters are forgettable. The side quests and exploration are too repetitive, bordering on AC territory and the combat isn't all that great. That's just my personal opinion though, maybe it deserves higher for you.

    • Exactly 7 is just good and these games are great.

    • But, we will miss all good quality meme

    • 7 is good

  • Looks a lot better than Breath Of The Wild

  • One of the complaints can be easily fixed by just adding an option to disable the icons like how in odyssey you can choose exploration mode or guided mode there you go boosted to a 8

  • This game is so overpriced

  • If they lost the hand holding like zelda did, and let you explore at your own pace, i bet we'd have a pretty good zelda spiritual successor, but alas, ubi is ubi.

    • It's an option you can turn off similar to Odyssey

    • Yup, typical Ubisoft to ape Zelda, but missing the point on what made that game good.

  • A fresh breath in the genre

    • @Frog still I have to say the game looks great and it's fun. I'm enjoying it much more than valhalla

    • A breath of the wild.

  • I see a video review of an average looking game. I skip to the last 30 seconds to get the gist and the score. Anyone else?

  • I hate how games have a specific region that they’re based on but they tend to give them a Royal British or Scottish accent. Give them a Greek accent, you dolts!

    • I don’t have an issue with it, if it’s that big a problem maybe you should insist that they include a Greek language option and you can use English subtitles.

    • Because english accents etc are just so much more talented.

    • Its in a lot of movies too, but you cant really ask an english actor to fake an italian accent ya know.

  • How in the hell this game is a 7? It should be at least a 8 like Bugsnax

  • Seems like it would be more fun to just not reveal all the collectables when you get to a vantage point, then you get a greater sense of discovery. Game looks pretty cool, but seeing as I JUST beat Breathe of the Wild and I'm around 12 hours into my AC: Origins playthrough Im happy holding off on this for a bit, cause you know, that whole cyberpunk thing....
