At the time of publication, Metacritic had collected more than 100 reviews for Assassin’s Creed Mirage: 75 reviews were on PS5 (77%), 25 on Xbox Series X and S (78%), and 15 on PC (77%). At OpenCritic the picture is similar – 95 reviews and 76%.

We would like to remind you that the events of Assassin’s Creed Mirage take place 20 years before Valhalla, in Baghdad in the ninth century. Players in the role of the young Basim ibn Ishaq must develop from street thief to master assassin.

Reviewers praised the healthy length (around 20 hours), the beautifully realized “Baghdad,” which brings back the emphasis on stealth to the time of the first installments, and the mostly pleasant graphics and soundtrack.

The disadvantages of the project included the inconsistency of the plot without knowledge of previous games, the illusion of non-linearity, uninteresting battles, outdated mission design, stupid AI, an almost complete lack of new ideas and a lot of technical problems.

    Many reviewers found Basim to be a downright boring character

Despite its flaws, most reviewers loved the Mirage “A breath of fresh air in the endless sea of ​​open-world adventure games” and a good choice for fans who miss the old Assassin’s Creed.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage launches tomorrow, October 5th, on PC (EGS, Ubisoft Connect), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, and the Luna service. Previously, Ubisoft presented the game’s system requirements.
