Devin Rardrin: Thanks to Ubisoft’s efforts, Valhalla comes across as a new standard for not only Assassin’s Creed, but open-world design in general.
Yes it is
It's decent but by the end of it I was really feeling the open world fatigue. It suffers from the same thing most open world games suffer from; lack of variety. Not in the world itself, but with things to do. Having said that, it's got far more variety in the side missions than Spider-Man. Man that game was repetitive
Nah Oddyssey was miles better. had boat battles and Small scale battles on the fields.
I agree. Imo it definitely has the best in the series.
I’m not sure I’d refer to it as the best of them all, but I certainly think it was better then odyssey’s terrible open world. Copy and pasted areas with the exactly same buildings and layout, followed by open areas that really didn’t look impressive and nothing in them....at all.
I felt like Odyssey's locations did feel different considering it took place in the same country at the same time in history. If it was any more different it would have been historically inaccurate and that would have been a shame
Idk if assassins creed games are just losing their flavor but I couldn’t get into Valhalla at all.
I couldn't finish the game due to the fierce amount of glitches & one that couldn't be fixed that I would have had to start the game all over again & I already had 95 hrs in. I traded it in towards Persona 5 Scramble.
It can be repetitive & I noticed a few bugs including some of my friends experienced a few as well. I'm taking my time with the game.
A new standard for open world design? Are you joking?
The only "new standard" Ubisoft is capable of accomplishing is concerning bland, boring, filler, grindy, generic, retread gaming.
Enjoyed it for the first 10 hours or so then repitition set in. Nothing felt new or exciting any more, just the same old crap over and over and over and over and over. And over. Oh and you become so powerful you can literally button mash your way through fights.
Odyssey was better ... and now? There is missing a IMHO ;)
My god this open world was and is one of the series most static and repetitive maps to date. It's the same every game from ubisoft. Copy paste and nothing new. Was gameplay of the series as well
