Okholos

Okholos is a different game in that instead of playing as an individual, you play as a mob. The mob consists of animals, slaves, and warriors rebelling against the ancient gods, who have treated them badly. The mob seeks to destroy everything in their path, and this is what most of the gameplay entails.

Okholos has amazing scenery and a setting from Ancient Greece that includes lush temples and fearsome gods. They will amaze you, but they are not such a huge hindrance that they make the game too hard or unplayable. Okholos is a truly different game and stands out among similar games.

Assassins Creed: Odyssey

Assassins Creed: Odyssey places you right in the streets of Ancient Greece. You start as an outcast and complete various missions and tasks to become a Spartan legend who is respected by both gods and man.

The game does not lean too heavily into Greek mythology but instead uses Ancient Greece as the setting of the Peloponnesian war, which is a large part of the game. The game does not have a strict structure, with players able to create their own paths and influence the war and Greek life around them in different ways.

God of War

Although recent iterations of the game have followed Norse mythology, God of War originally followed life in Ancient Greece. It follows the story of Kratos and is one of the oldest games in the Greek mythology genre.

Forced to kill both his wife and daughter, Kratos avenges their deaths and becomes a god himself. He then fights his father, Titans, and Olympians for betraying him and becomes one of the few Greek-themes games in the betrayal and revenge genre.
