Recently picked up 2 new games for the PS4, Marvel’s Spider-Man and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
I’ve had my eye on both for a while, and as the digital copies are on offer for Easter I thought I’d treat myself.
I actually messed up, accidentally purchasing Marvel’s Spider-Man Deluxe Edition while trying to remove it from the digital cart… yeah my wife didn’t believe me either 🙂
Sony refunded the cash conveniently back to my account, giving me the excuse to pick these gems up for less than the bundle.
So first impressions:
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Meh, I mean it’s probably good and I haven’t given it a full chance, but I don’t like Ubisoft’s buy extras and spend points mechanism, and the combat and movement is weak as I’ve been spoiled with Sekiro
I’ve loved each Spider-Man game that I’ve played in the past, and this is no disappointment.
The established formula of combat, and swinging around the city hasn’t changed; and I know it’s not everyone’s favourite in game mechanism but I like the quick time events 🙂
So I can see myself being drawn to swinging around the city when I need some downtime away from Sekiro, and I’ll keep the Odyssey waiting
