Assassin's Creed Odyssey Legacy of the First Blade Episode 3: Bloodline concludes the three-part series on an adequate note. Bringing together a series of predictable events and mediocre missions but ending with a conclusion tailored more for fans of the series. Newcomers may feel cheated with Bloodline's finale but longtime fans of the Assassin's Creed franchise find more value in how this game connects to other titles in the series.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey Legacy of the First Blade Episode 3: Bloodline takes place after the events of the second episode. With Alexios or Kassandra enjoying their new parent lifestyle devoid of the excitement of their previous adventures. However, things don't remain peaceful as the Order attacks, kills your partner, and kidnaps your child. Leaving the player yearning for revenge. What follows is both Darius and the player searching for the remaining members of the Order for not only revenge but to rescue your child.

The adventure isn't as eventful as the previous DLC campaign. With the player tasked with weakening the Order of the Ancients hold before leading a final charge. The boss battles remain the highlight of the adventure, with challenging fights against deadly opponents. But that objectives leading up to those fights are dry in comparison as you'll travel through similar locations to kill and obtain key targets. It's more of what players have been doing since episode 1 and the main campaign with little change.

The main campaign takes about 2 hours to complete and another hour if you wish to kill the rest of The Order of the Ancients. There's also a new sword player can unlock but only by killing the remaining members of the Order. It's a lot of busy work but those invested in the game's live service model will get a lot of use from the legendary weapon.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey Legacy of the First Blade Episode 3: Bloodline does conclude this series in an important way. Bringing Alexios and Kassandra's story in rest of the Assassin's Creed franchise but in a less eventful way. The story and overall mission structure is stale and offers little variety of what players have already been playing since the game launched, with the ending being the only worthwhile addition to the overall story of Assassin's Creed Odyssey.
