    The Siege of Paris is a very enjoyable step up from Wrath of the Druids and leaves you wanting more, in a good way. If this is indeed the final big expansion for Valhalla, it’s a high note to end on. While I’m not a fan of the infinite content machines the developers seem intent on shoving into every game, the story content is excellent, Paris and the surrounding countryside are gorgeous, and the new gameplay additions mix things up enough to feel worthy of a paid DLC.

    Assassin's Creed Valhalla: The Siege of Paris is less of an expansion and more of a continuation, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. While Eivor's character development seemed to take a step backward, fans of the base game will still enjoy another 10 or so hours of gameplay thanks to Francia's new storyline, characters, weapons, and abilities.

    The Siege of Paris rests solidly on the playful and technical foundations of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and in some respects does not reach the scenic heights of Eivor's Irish journey.

    The Siege of Paris takes us to a brand-new location and brings back the wonderful black box assassination missions from Unity, but mostly fails to provide a compelling narrative to back that up. Like Wrath of the Druids before it, a few new gameplay mechanics don't prevent The Siege of Paris from being more of the same.

    If it is a little shorter than its predecessor, this second Assassin's Creed Valhalla DLC is nevertheless more interesting. This is due in particular to the gripping atmosphere of this afflicted Francia, governed by a king who has lost his mind. With its striking atmosphere and striking characters, this historical extension offers us a more complex experience than it seems. Add to that a little welcome return to basics and the qualities of the initial title, and you get a new gripping adventure for Eivor, although hampered by the absence of a seat worthy of the name and real novelties.

    With a story that fails to go beyond serviceable and some not particularly inspired characters, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: The Siege of Paris fails to reach the heights of the Wrath of the Druid expansion, basically offering more of the same in a somewhat uninteresting setting. The Infiltration Missions, a nice callback to earlier entries in the series, are not enough to salvage an experience that only the most die-hard Assassin’s Creed Valhalla fans will thoroughly enjoy.

    I’ve played a decent number of RPG expansions in my time, and a majority of them have built on what makes the base game good. Whether it was The Witcher 3‘s Blood and Wine or New Vegas‘ Old World Blues, a good DLC takes the best aspects of the base game and raises them up while including a unique, new spin. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla‘s Siege of Paris is antithetical to that. The game’s best parts — its world and characters — are left in the muck, while a boring gameplay loop and heavy-handed story take center stage. Of course, some players will enjoy having more of the same to explore, but considering how long it takes to even finish Valhalla, I couldn’t imagine coming back for seconds. When I first arrived in the game’s version of Paris, I saw an exhausted, burnt-out land. When I left it, I could certainly sympathize.

    Almost perfect dlc. I was expecting little bit more nods to Unity, but it's fine. Overall very good!

    Very solid DLC, quality stuff as expected from Ubisoft! I wish they would give Arno's outfit, then it would be perfect.

    Very decent expansion, Paris looks cool and quests are better than in last dlc. I honestly don't care if anyone hates it, i personally like it.

    Paris looks nice, reminds me my favorite AC Unity, it's not perfect, but it's not bad either.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This DLC was partially interesting. I like the rebels quests but they didn't amount to anything. The story was fair but kind of illogical in the end. I mean, the King just wave a flag of truce, and the guy set on revenge just accepted...money. It seems that was what happened in reality but it is kind of boring for a game. The rebels didn't always engaged in battle. The raid in this DLC weren't useful, why even put them here ??? You get at least some items, that could get upgraded, but if you completed the main game, they were a waste of time. I give it 60%. None of the characters were emotionally important except Bernard and Richardis, and somehow the game missed the mark with both of them. All the rest was working well but the story was really stretched in all directions. At least there is some historical value to the DLC Expand

    The story must've been written by a toddler. Incoherent and filled with pointless moments. I must've looked like I have dandruff playing thisThe story must've been written by a toddler. Incoherent and filled with pointless moments. I must've looked like I have dandruff playing this game since I was constantly scratiching my ehad. Technically, there were a lot of bugs in dire need of a QOL update.
    Under no circumstances would I replay this mess of a DLC, I feel robbed of my money.
