    Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on Xbox is possibly my favourite entry in the series - stunningly glorious, fluid as you like, and full of mammoth amounts of content. If I had to be negative, then at times it can feel a little bit buggy, but I don't think I've played an open-world game that hasn't had this problem and at no point has it affected my enjoyment of the game.

    With an engaging combination of combat, exploration, and crafted story content, this Viking legend is an epic with a little something for everyone.

    Assassin's Creed Valhalla is the culmination of the new model for the saga that Origins established and Odyssey perfected.

    A strong Assassin’s Creed episode, a motivating open-world-game.: Eivors adventure is not faultless, but delivers an always entertaining mixture of exploration, story, battles and estate development – while looking gorgeous throughout.

    Assassin's Creed Valhalla is well executed on several levels, sans the bugs that I ran into. It is a true AAA title that is a worthy playthrough for fans of the game old and new. It is a tale of fate, loyalty, glory and morality. Eivor must make tough decisions as to how to grow their settlement and how they navigate relationships in the world. The decisions you make will change components of the story, so you are in charge of your own destiny.

    The Xbox Series X version of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla takes advantage of the extra horsepower, showcasing a native 4K resolution while running at a targeted 60fps. It will sometimes dip below that, and there aren’t too many other next generation features present, like Raytracing, but otherwise it’s the best way to play the open-world title. Taken on its own and judged on its own merits, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is an enjoyable opportunity to vicariously raid and pillage the English countryside.

    AC Valhalla is a garrulous ode to mediocrity, a cacophonous elegy to boredom that embodies previously successful or unsuccessful mechanisms and a new catastrophic idea about in-game combat. The A.I. is horrendous and the fact that the previously honorable Assassins of the Creed turned out to be blood thirsty savages that are only pleasing their urge for conquest and blood, is repugnant.
