@Seth: If anything I've heard that Odyssey compounds those issues. I've heard plenty of people say that there's TOO MUCH content. (5 Hours ago)
I'll keep playing once per week, but the Ubi's usual world building, gigantic maps filled with crap is not changed since last gen and is kinda off putting. (6 Hours ago)
@AndreasZ94: i do like the more responsive controls of the main characters, but the world is lifeless coming from RDR2, horse controls and animations are laughable and generation behind competition. (6 Hours ago)
@AndreasZ94: I did tried AC odyssey for a few hours. It's weird, that game is extremely pretty (on PC) and i like some of the side quests and the dialogue choices. (6 Hours ago)
My second most played game this gen after Witcher 3. (6 Hours ago)
@AndreasZ94: i hit 200 hours at around 92% in RDR2. Funny thing the stats doesn't even count many stranger missions (for example for 100% you need only 10 of them) and other optional stuff. (6 Hours ago)
In RDR2 a horse died on a main road, every time I past it the carcass was more rotten. Now there are just bones. (9 Hours ago)
