The gameplay features many elements from past Assassin’s Creed titles such as stealth assassinations, parkour navigation and exploration of historic sites like Stonehenge. Combat has been improved with more dynamic and realistic fight mechanics. Players also have access to skill trees, crafting, fishing and hours of side quests. Additionally, the game provides an engaging online multiplayer mode that allows you to team up with friends or compete against other players in various intense challenges.

It definitely isn't a 4/10! Even by the reviewers score 10-10-10-4-2 doesn't = 4! Try 7!

Also I liked the game, it wasn't as good as past Assassins Creed games, but not bad! I would like to see a Black Flag remake on new Gen hardware.

I'd love to see an assassins creed in a future setting. Idk how but I'm sure they can figure something out


Modern Games Are Getting Too Long

While there’s a lot to love about modern video games, there is one trend — particularly in the AAA space — that tends to grate: their length.

Games are coming out with too much fluff and side activities that are horribly dull. That's my main issue with all these open world games. Open world should be about exploration, discovery and wonder, not have some stupid 10s or 100s of boring activities spread throughout.

100% agree
All these ubisoft titles, Farcry, AC, Ghost recon, boast huge maps, but with the same, 3 missions or the same base to clear 100s of times. Hour 1 of any of those titles is the same as hour 100, there big for the sake of being big, with the illusion of player freedom, where we really want depth and player expression.

Give me a solid 15-20 hour engaging single player driven IP any day. Life's too short you dig.

I stopped buying overfluffed games like a decade ago. Cant stand games with the Ubisoft mindset of just filling maps with uselss collectibles and fodder. Make it mean something. Ill gladly take 1/4 size of the map and 1/10th the "content" if it all meant more, were more unique and greater affect on your progression.

Well people complained like the world was ending when a few games were six to ten hours of gameplay. Developers listened and started making longer games full of repetitive gameplay, time wasting fetch quest and other forms of bloat. In doing so they were able to justify the high cost of a game being sold to the customers at seventy dollars or more.

Filler, it's like a 80 episodes show where only the first and last episodes actually matter

Inverno56d ago

It's been a problem with pretty much every modern AAA game all through last gen and this gen. God forbid you point it out tho because all these big games are masterpieces and people lose their minds if you criticize them. Death Stranding is a fetch quest fest, but people will die defending it cause it's a "masterpiece".

Thanks for the warning. I sure would have hated to have been surprised by installing a ubisoft game on accident.

Profchaos288d ago

Because you can't play all the games on every subscription already

Valhalla is not on GamePass.

I like Valhalla. The others haven't aged well.
