OK, I got to the end of the Deimos storyline, which ended rather abruptly. I guess that’s the end of the game? I suppose I could go around taking out the last few Cult members, work my way to the top of the Mercenary tiers and/or fight another mythical creature to gain entrance to Atlantis, and maybe I will at some point, but I’m happy to take a break for now. Like all non-Rockstar open world games, it has devolved into busywork and I’d like to move on to other things. It once again makes me appreciate the genius of GTAV (and RDR2 to a lesser degree), which somehow consistently raises the stakes and remains fun and interesting until the very end.
The plot pacing in this game is pretty terrible. It doesn’t flow very well and often things happen that seem to be random. The battle between Sparta and Athens is a complete sideshow, so this whole mechanic where you can influence one side or the other is totally wasted. And you end up having zero investment in either side.
I got to the switch in character to Aya. I meant to go back, but got distracted.
