Immortals Fenyx Rising brings the experience of Greek mythology from a whole new perspective. There are combining elements in the open-world role-playing genre such as hack and slash, puzzles, character upgrades…

The game promises to bring relaxing moments for players passionate about Greek mythology.

The plot has not much creativity

The plot is in a vast island. Its name is the Golden Isle, The Titan Typhon has now defeated all 7 of the most powerful gods in Greece and spread terror around the world. Zeus, Lord of the Gods, is now seeking help from another Titan, Prometheus to fight Typhon. Instead of helping, Prometheus told Zeus the story of the rise of Fenyx, the main character in the game.

Accidentally drifting to the Golden Isle, the warrior Fenyx must overcome countless challenges to write his own mythical story. He carried on the task of recovering and uniting the 7 mighty Greek gods to fight together against Typhon. The players will have to control Fenyx against all the dark forces that dare to interfere with the above mission.


The game was developed by Ubisoft and inspired by a small bug in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. But instead of focusing on the historical aspect, Immortals Fenyx Rising is more inclined to completely integrate the Greek myths that make up the game.

A world is full of new but also familiar thing. Gods such as Hermes, Aphrodite, Hephaestus, Athena, Ares… with their unique personalities are perfectly expressed, blending with the story through funny, satirical narratives.

Interesting gameplay but…

The basic gameplay of Immortals Fenyx Rising inspired by one of the most successful open-world games Legend of Zelda and Breath of the Wild. The protagonist (can be gender-selectable) has the ability to climb on any terrain with the Stamina bar.

Also, the protagonist is able to fly high in the sky through Daedalus’s wings. In addition, players will also have to participate in puzzles to improve the strength of their characters.


Immortals Fenyx Rising offers an extremely diverse combat system for gamers to choose from. It starts from basic attacks such as hitting, parrying, dodging to using the power “borrowed” from the gods to create a multitude of extremely beautiful combos.

The skill upgrade system is analyzed by branches to suit each different playstyle. The gamers can completely change themselves as well as Fenyx’s choices on the path of hardship.

The biggest minus point of the game can say to be the variety as well as the outstanding characteristics of each type of enemy. Gamers will become quick, very easily bored when they have to constantly fight with Cyclopes or Griffins with the simple and boring attacks.


Some small bosses such as Achilles, Odysseus, Medusa are too few as well as gamers that require certain skills through the story to be able to complete.

In addition to slashing, Immortals Fenyx Rising also offers numerous side quests as well as puzzle areas dotted with maps, Vaults of Tartaros. Acting as temples in Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the players will need to make their way through rooms rife with traps and puzzles to complete missions.

Standard Vaults will include rooms that are small and relatively easy to overcome. While God Vaults can take up to an hour to complete challenging puzzles.


Immortals Fenyx Rising brings gamers a world of Greek mythology extremely humorous and satirical through the characters’ lines as well as the narration of Prometheus and Zeus.

Players will never feel lost between serious as well as funny moments. All the narrative elements are subtly arranged to create a colorful and sometimes, very Deadpool style.
