Let me be the first to say what Ubisoft achieved here in terms of making this game feel like a real RPG especially with its Story, Dialogue lines and animations is very impressive.
However, the weakest aspect of this game is currently how I can customize my armor.
I only have one choice. Hide or leave it as it is.
I am also actively encouraged to use a full set or I lose bonuses.
So either I equip the whole thing or I miss an advantage.
In AC Odyssey I could wear whatever and look however I wanted but that no longer exists.
The game offers amazing tattoos for my character but virtually every single armor hides them except for one and if you want to play as Lady Eivor then prepare yourself for lots of clipping. I am of course talking about the paid DLC Berserker armor.
Some might say well just hide your chest armor and leave the rest! Ok fine. But the problem is almost all the detail in the armor is in the torso. The Boots which includes the pants lack detail, especially the pants because most of the time no matter what you wear just looks like a simple cheap leather pants.
All the belts, horns, dagger sheaths and etc... that are seen on the armor come from the Torso piece. Hide the torso and you lose everything.
There is not that much armor/gear in the game either, sure the upgrades look impressive but why does the customization options seem so bare boned... I am not mad that there are barely a dozen armor sets in the game (paid DLC included) what I am upset about is this lack of quantity has translated very little in terms of quality. Why can't I customize? Why can't I be bare chested but leave the belts on?
Why is there no menu screen that I can toggle different parts of the raven torso armor to make it look like how I want it? I mean there aren't that many armor options for me to play around with so at least let me customize the few I get.
For example what if I want the torso armor but cut off at the sleeves so I can show off my tats?
Why am I forced to choose between everything or absolutely nothing? Will there be a patch? Please tell me there is a fix for all this because right now I can't bring myself to play the game until some new piece of content arrives that has the armor look I am looking for... hopefully it won't include any clipping.
