Tom: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is really good. Steven called it “a remarkably massive RPG held together by a web of satisfying pursuits” in our Assassin’s Creed Odyssey review. We have found one sticking point that’s worthy of more discussion, however. If you head into the ‘Time Savers’ section of the in-game store, you can find a permanent 50 percent XP boost that lets you progress through the story faster without having to complete as many of the game’s side activities. It costs 1000 Helix credits. A pack containing 1050 Helix credits costs $10/£9. You also get some free credits during the game.
Samuel and I both bought it, and for me it solves the biggest problem I have with the game. I played eight hours of Odyssey at a preview event. I noted my struggles to hit the level gate at the end of the demo. Now I’m going through the game again with the XP boost active, and it’s a much smoother, more enjoyable experience. I love the story, but I only enjoy some of the sidequests and side activities. In another RPG, like The Witcher 3, the levelling curve is forgiving enough to let me progress at my own pace and pick and choose what I want to do. In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey I feel like I can only do that with the permanent 50 percent XP boost.
