Assassin's Creed Valhalla (Xbox Series X) Review

  1. I really really enjoyed odyssey, but it seems they took out everything I liked about the last game in this one. The story and voice acting look top notch still, but the lack of open world exploration, side quests, and varied gear and skill builds makes me not want to play. Not to mention the combat looks very stilted and laboured. I may be one of the few who actually enjoyed the open world rpg interpretation of AC, but I also enjoyed the earlier games and their arcade style action. Valhalla seems not to have the strengths of either play style.

  2. I'd like to tell a short bit of Historical fact, the 1st Assassin Creed was playable. Glitchy and a little difficult to get down. Mainly cuz its Glitchy. Then Fast forward to the American revolution one, 1 word: it Sucked. Now they're adding Females just like everyone else, but ontop of that, they copy off that Asinine tv show called Vikings, but it's the furthest thing from it. If u wanna know what Vikings were like, watch 13th Warrior. This mumbo jumbo about Women being Warriors is a crock of Shit. The Vikings would just laugh at the woman, and put her in a hole because shes crazy.

  3. I can't believe how nobody ever talks about these "nordic" accents. I can't unhear an American voiceactor pretending to talk more slowly and deeply. Nordic language has a light tone and completely different from English in its tone. I'm so bothered because do the voice actors not know? Or are they unable to immitate it.

    I mean I could buy it if the Vikings came from saxon tribes. But Norweigan is not even close to sounding like the "vikings" in the game

  4. Funny how Demon's Souls a game from 2009 has a more rewarding gameplay loop, deeper combat and better lore than this nextgen AAA game.

    Also Ubisoft: magical female dane decked out in tattoos, braids, and furred leathers duel wielding 10 inch thick axes

  6. Vikings were way smarter than people take them for. They invented galvanized wood which we still use to this day for ships. They were super smart for that time.

    Should be called THE CREED OF AN ASSASSIN. Their you go

  7. I had a lot of fun the first few hours but then grew deathly bored after about the 20-30 hour mark. I just felt like I was playing a watered down Witcher 3, and I'd rather just play The Witcher 3. The stories of these games always feel very flat to me, like it's a stock example story, which is what most Ubisoft stories feel like of recent times. That sort of soulless feel of a corporate made game rather than a game made because they had a story to tell. Also the combat became a repetitive loop, I found a sort of winning combo pretty early on that meant the game had no challenge anymore aside from when it makes you do 1 pixel of damage on an over leveled enemy.
    Honestly I can't see any reason to play this game when there're so many RPGs like it out there that are worth the time to invest in. It isn't a bad game, it is good, just mediocre and only a bit of an improvement over Odyssey, but these multi million dollar companies should do more than just being a bit better than last time.

  8. I get so tired of seeing objective markers and lines to those objective markers in modern games. Just put a dot on the map and let me find my own way to it. There has to be a better, more inventive way to get me to my next objective without having some obnoxious yellow line on the ground. If you wanna talk "immersion shattering," then start there, because it definitely shatters it to pieces.

  9. If you look at this as an assassins creed game it’s horrible. If you look at it as an open world Viking rpg it’s great. Wouldn’t buy this game if it was on sale for 20$.

  10. I honestly don't get all the hype around Odyssey. As for Origins, it was so boring I couldn't even bother to finish watching a playthrough.

  11. good lord, reading these comments… the "gaming community" is toxic as hell. No real critiques, just vibes. The game is still Assassin's Creed. If you want challenging combat and an engaging story you want this game, trust me. How you play the game is still up to you! Even in Odyssey you could not simply hack and slash everyone (if you play on hard). Being stealthy in Odyssey saved you the trouble of having to pay off your bounty or being chased relentlessly by bounty hunters (I hated the bounty system). I've finished 1,2,3, and Black Flag. I have 120+ hours on Odyssey, and have played every game in the series accept Unity. And can say for a fact that, the original combat system was boring as hell and too easy. I could face more people in open combat in those early games than I ever could in Odyssey or Valhalla and these are the ones people complain about not having an assassin feel smh. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. The real victim of this series is that terribly convoluted "real world" story outside of the Animus. That shit is confusing af.

  12. you should plug your pc into your couch t.v. and use the big screen as the monitor with a wireless xbox controller, it makes playing pc so much better.

  13. I think ubisoft is bad at story telling. I’ve never LOVED an AC game story. The first few were good, I was enjoying the present day story, but then they abandoned it. Now they focus almost solely on the past stories and I’m always a little bored.

  14. 'Immortals: Fenyx Rising' is the BEST game that I've played from Ubisoft in the last couple of years. I really, really enjoyed. I decided to go for it, instead of getting 'Assassin's Creed: Valhalla'. I just wanted something different and I'm glad that I made that choice. Considering it is a Ubisoft Game, I'd say it is excellent!

    Who else has played 'Immortals: Fenyx Rising' and what did you think?
