    How are the secondary quests and the minor characters ? Are they better written than the main one ? And what about the main character Alexios/Kassandra ?

    Edit : At this point I think I may just buy the game and see it myself

    From what i see and read, its pretty bad. Very grindy game, very repetitive side quests, customization is full of micro transactions according to angry joe review. The main thing for it according to them is that is a pretty game. The rest quite mediocre.

    I'm currently playing it (level 18). There's surely a lot of grinding and I feel less attached to the characters as in the previous game. This one is very similar in looks, but has some improvements, mainly regarding the naval battles and further customization of the ship (you can, for example, recruit people for it). There's also stuff "stolen" from other games as Witcher 3, like romancing (with rather clumsy dialogue so far). It's also pretty ridiculous that you (while playing Alexios) can romance at least two bearded guys over 20 .... I mean in old Greece .... The combat is also similar as in Witcher 3, since you can't fight with a shield anymore, so you have to block with your weapon or quickly dodge.

    I don't even have a problem with the romance (though it's part of dialogue options which SUCK). Alexios or Kassandra can do it with whoever

    It's the fact that it is SO clumsy and awkward. I'm playing as Kassandra (canon) and when she flirts its weird. And no matter how many times to answer no it still keeps happening. And it's like 70's porn level of dialogue bad.

    I brought the game Friday. I played for 6 hours and started messing the Athenians in Megaris.

    Concerning the writing style, the first difference I noticed with Origins is the tone. Odyssey is happier and more funny. It is distinctly different from the dramatic tone of Origins where you are immediately submerged by Bayek's grief over his dead son.

    As expected I dislike the combat. It is worse than Origins as you can not hold your guard posture. It feels grindy too. Frequently I just push repeatedly the attack key until one of my opponent dies. Combat is also difficult and punishing. It should become easier now that I am level 9 and I unlocked a skill allowing to heal myself during combat.

    In Origins I was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of combat gear loot. It is even worse in Odyssey. I kind of dislike it as scrolling over menus and wasting time selling unused equipment is not the most entertaining thing to do imo. The bright side is that you find many nice looking equipment. No matter what are your personal style.

    So here I present you my misthios with his current gears :

    I am fairly happy about this set. I will probably do as I did in Origins : stick to normal equipment as they are way cheaper to improve.

    Don't get too happy with sets...You will be continuously switching things in and out as you go

    I'm still on chapter seven, about 53 hours in. I MAY do all the side stuff before the end cause it apparently changes the ending.

    I was going to post about how much great the game is and how much fun I am having currently. Alas the game decided to corrupt all my saves after 17 hours of game. I am pissed-off.

    No backups outside of the game itself?

    On PS4 and XBOX(?) I know the systems back up saves to the servers
