Looking Back: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (2018)

I’ve never been an Assassin’s Creed fan. From the start, the series has always felt too bloated and full of busywork, and the premise of reliving past lives through DNA reconstruction (because DNA records every minute of action and every word of every ancestor’s life, I guess?) never gelled for me.

The Division 2: The Warlords Of New York Preview

The manhunt for elusive boogeyman and rogue Division agent Aaron Keener is finally coming to a head with the upcoming Warlords of New York expansion for The Division 2. GameCritics was given a chance to go hands-on with the content to take a glimpse at how New York has fared since we visited in the first game, and also to see what it will take to finally track down Keener and his group of rogue agents.

The Division 2 Preview

GameCritics was recently invited to a preview event offering roughly 5 hours of The Division 2, and it’s shaping up well. Based on what I played, it addresses many of the issues I had with the previous title while also seemingly focusing upon the endgame — something that was sorely lacking before.
