I really liked the Discover tour so far, and I liked Assassin’s Creed Origins just fine for what it is, but what the Discovery Tour really is, is a tour through all the hard work and subtle details they put into the nooks and crannies of the game that players may have overlooked. I mean they had 11 Library of Alexandria stations and the last one wasn’t even about the library, like they ran out of things to say. The tours are very superficial and more informative than educational. I was hoping for lectures and instead got sarcastic readers and very short synopses. But, there is still content there, pictures to actual artifacts and art, so it has some value, just not near the value maybe everyone hoped.
But what it does let you do is wander around and enjoy the incredible scenery, which is worth it (i think). The scale of things , i.e., the distance between things is a problem - it starts at Sewa and goes wrong from there, and like most games, it’s very unhappy being flat, like most of the agricultural regions of the world were. But there was so much love poured into the world building of the game i can’t really be angry for not being even better.
I should post that video commentary i made of AC:O… i just hate the sound of my voice. I want to strangle that voice, urgh.
