Beneath the chaos lies a rich and untamed land waiting for a new conqueror. Will it be you? Write Your Viking Saga. Blaze your own path across England with advanced RPG mechanics. Fight brutal battles, lead fiery raids or use strategy and alliances with other leaders to bring victory. Every choice you make in combat and conversation is another step on the path to greatness.

    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.

    Assassins creed Valhalla is a great game to start the new generation with. The world is impressive, loading times are fast and gameplay experience is great and smooth with 60 frames per second.

    Assassin’s Creed Valhalla further refines the RPG style of Origins and Odyssey and their enormous worlds. Addictive progression and an engaging story tie everything together in meaningful ways, but the bloated length almost ruins the impact of the story, while lackluster AI causes combat to wear thin. Still, England and Norway are breathtakingly beautiful with an outrageous amount of things to discover and unique tales to tell.

    If you like what Assassin’s Creed has become, then you’ll enjoy Valhalla. It’s fun, big and beautiful, but it’s also repetitive and predictable.

    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.

    Amazing soundtrack, i could literally meditate to that main menu music, so well done.
    If you hate this game, maybe just give up gaming or something, find new hobby, because you clearly aren't able to enjoy greatness. If it's not your style or whatever, that's fine, Assassin's Creed was never "game for everyone", but just hating it shows how pathetic you are.
    Amazing game.

    Don’t waste your money. AC doesn’t know what they are anymore. It’s a lackluster game half put together with cringe dialogue
