    Assassin's Creed Valhalla blends old and new to create a unique experience and one of the best Assassin's Creed experiences yet. It combines series-best combat, a compelling story, and mesmerising locales to dually offer a definitive Viking and assassin experience.

    Where AC Origins introduced RPG mechanics and AC Odyssey took a leap of faith in pushing forward, Assassin's Creed Valhalla brings back the general feeling of being an Assassin from the core action-adventure titles. Indeed, by emphasizing the adventure and exploration components of the franchise, Assassin's Creed Valhalla may just be the most true-to-form release in many years.

    Assassin's Creed: Valhalla takes all the previous systems introduced in Origins and Odyssey, and streamlines them into a more focused experience. The game may have some flaws, and it's a shame to see the combat remains mediocre after all these years, yet Valhalla is easily the best entry in the recent trilogy. Grab your axes and shields: it's time to go a-viking!

    If you’re in the mood for another open-world action game, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is a fine choice. It is a little too similar in aspects to the last two games, making this feel like the point where Ubisoft may want to consider re-evaluating the series once again, but the settings, characters, and overall world are enough to overlook most of the repetitiveness. So provided you don’t have open-world burnout from the other like-minded games that released this year, I think Valhalla is certainly worth checking out.

    Even with its technical shortcomings on last-generation hardware, it is hard to not call Assassin’s Creed Valhalla an amazing open-world RPG. It’s obvious that Ubisoft did its homework and learned from Origins and Odyssey. Valhalla’s story is one of the best not only in the franchise but in the open-world RPG genre. The world is vast but not laden with empty, pointless space. Combat is addicting, character customization is the best the franchise has ever seen, and the welcome return of composer Jesper Kyd makes for one of last year’s most immersive and satisfying experiences.

    Assassin’s Creed brings beautiful English countryside to the masses whilst fixing a lot of the series’ recent missteps. Some genuinely fun and surprising moments with some great writing make for a fun time.

    It mimics the Odyssey formula but takes a step backward in almost every way.

    Unlike Odyssey, this one is worth trying out, it's actually really solid AC game. I have played it over 20 hours already and can't get enough of it.

It's truly amazing game and there's nothing more that pisses me off than these absolute nolife losers who gives zeros without even caring about this series or buying it. I wish all the worst in your lives. Expand

    I'm so happy that Assassin's Creed Valhalla turned out to be better game than "CyberDelay 2077". One of the actual real ones, YoutuberI'm so happy that Assassin's Creed Valhalla turned out to be better game than "CyberDelay 2077". One of the actual real ones, Youtuber "Michael Does Life" said it how it really is. Cyberpunk 2077 as of right now is buggier than Fallout 76 at launch (i'm talking about Cyberpunk 2077 PS4 Version, i don't care about PC version). PC version was supposed to be great anyway, but apparently even PC version of Cyberpunk 2077 has tons of bugs, just read Gamespot review. That is the truth. I don't care what fanboys say. Expand

    Great Assassins Creed game that suffers from frequent game crashing bugs...
    First lwt me start by saying currently I have 40+ hours in game, this is not a review by someone who has completed the game nor by someone who only has 2-3 hours. If you are a fan of the AC series you will naturally love this game. It takes what was good about Odyssey and trims a lot of the fat. The combat system has been changed a lot and it takes some getting used to but It is fun and rewarding. You don't pick up thousands of weapons and armor pieces like in Odyssey anymore. The game opts for a few pieces that it wants you to upgrade. The game is also visually stunning, making full use of HDR and beautiful landscapes.
