    If I had never played AC before I would be okay with this game, but after playing Odyssey for the past few years this game is terrible so far.

    It's still early, so it could get better, but everything seems half-thought -out to me.

    1. no arrow crafting
    2. combat style is not my thing at all
    3. voice acting is WAY to over the top. Not believable at all. Odyssey was natural and believable.
    4. Venders are useless.
    5. Why do I even need a bird? Does it serve any purpose at all?


    There's more but this is just a step in the wrong direction IMO.

    I'm speaking mostly in general, but i honestly think it's because of a game-company's deadline (game need to be finished at a certain time, with a certain budget), in return you get employers working overtime (crunch time) to hit the target aka deadline.

    I'm sure that there are employers etc that put their heart and soul in their games with passion, but because of the angry bosses, investors, and publishers it all gets ruined in the process. In the end it's all about money and keeping their businesses going.

    @mistergeek I'm also disappointed about Valhalla. Unlike you I found the exploration part to be the best, have you explored England yet? You are free to roam as soon as you get the base up and running. The side missions in this game have been turned into myesteries, and they carry nice story and a good game experience in my opinion. Sure they might be a distance between them, but you have a horse you can ride. What dissapoints me is the combat mechanic and a couple of gameplay decisions, and the bugs, all the bugs....

    I agree that raiding can be unchallenging, and thats what I found to be fun. You are a big badass Viking raider that just enters and take what you want with your gang, feels amazing. However the enemy AI is just as stupid and weak when you infiltrate their main base with kings or heavily guarded treasures. Or raiding a fort, there is no challenge (playing on very hard...) also stealth means nothing, not because the game isn't designed for it, but because the AI is both blind and deaf, unless you whistle at them.

    @rumenrs Combat absolutely sucks!! The most boring part of the entire experience

    @eivorthebrute Graphics aside, the gameplay is the worst part

    @milansan Boring and frustrating. Their new stamina system is excelent at showing how bad the whole thing is in general. The AI is as engaging as an potato, and I really hope that is a bug that prevents difficulty to be set right, because I slaughter whole forts without a sweat on the hardest difficulty. It's boring and buggy and a terrible experience to an overall amazing game.

    Hi strongbonekid 🙂

    Im having the opposite trouble with stealth, my npc soldiers seem to be extra vigilent and if my Eivor even sticks her nose out of a bush then someone a mile away is alarmed and they ALL rush her, hiding again doesnt seem to work well even if I leave the camp. For this reason Ive taken to sniping all of them from as far away as my bow will let me. I miss the old days of sneaking around in bushes and hitting them with darts and pulling them down etc. I have very little opportunity for close contact kills because all the npc soldiers seem to have super sonic hearing and eyesight of hawks (and Im playing on easy)

    So maybe I have a bug but its very different from Odyssy on easy anyway.

    @cell1e Stealth ability is something that increases . Its not going to be very good to stare. Some of the skill tree nodes infact increases stealth.. I have no issues with stealth. Stay in the tall grass and out of the enemies field of vison. I have killed off entire garrisons with stealth. And seeing somebody 100 feet away is very easy is reality. The fact that they can see you when your in there field of vision is not surprising.

    yeah i have been grabbing every stealth option in the skill tree I can, I crawl around in the long grass alot, but enemies see me doing my assinations from miles off, its strange. I bet Ive messed up soemthing in my setttings again. Cause somethings not right with my sneaking. I had quite a good session last night with the sniping, but Id love to be able to get a bit closer to enemies more often. In Odyssy and Orogins the enemies field of vision was drastically reduced from far away, in this game, a qucik and silent assination far from others is often noticed. Has to be a bug or a setting. Should be a breeze on easy 🙂

    I agree the combat is pretty poor. Stamina bar AND the red unavoidable attacks? Why? That’s not fun at all.

    the camera seems to not really focus on the good parts either.

    Um.. a PS4 is a real game machine. It's arrogant PC super race losers like you that ruin PC gaming.

    You give other PC gamers like me a bad name by acting stupid, and trying to make console gamers feel bad.

    Grow up already.

    @mistergeek Oh man, I thought I was being crazy with my 300 hours on Odyssey, especially considering how crappy it's supposed to be according to the most of the Internet, but I loved it. Full kudos to you.

    And here I am, playing Valhalla and feeling salty about lies Ubi sold to me. I have no feeling of a story in this game, from my perspective after landing in England the plot ends, from now on it's only about:

    • Killing the members of the Order, but unlike in Odyssey, where you had personal conflict with them, here your brother just randomly introduces you to two Hidden ones and basically says "these here are good pals, help them kill some guys". I didn't get much into that, since going to London requires like 90? 120? power, I'm 50 and 13hrs into the game (am I doing something wrong? :D),
    • Building the village - again, the plot with Valka looks pretty cool, but my character is too weak to progress further in Asgard, and the next area to conquer is like 90, so I find myself...
    • Raiding. A LOT. It was fun at first, but gets boring and repetitive quickly


    And that's it. I don't know what to do here. And also I agree with OP: this game looks mad unfinished. Yesterday I was laughing at my 3 of my bois trying to run through a closed door during a raid. Map navigation is driving me crazy. The game is riddled with small, yet noticeable bugs like these. For a $60 game I really expected more, since I fell in love with the Odyssey especially that people just crap all over Odyssey, and said that Valhalla is going to be soooo much better...

    Oh, and one more thing. Why did Ubisoft felt the need to record the songs played on the boat like this? You can hear lute playing, but see noone playing it. You can hear a person singing, but it feels more like they are playing music from Spotify on their JBL, it's so smooth and perfect, it just bothers me and I highly doubt that they would sing like that on just any Viking boat. But again, maybe I'm too picky with that 😄

    @x0z3ro0x @SofaJockey Would you like a napkin? Or do you enjoy having all that poo on your nose?

    If you don't have anything useful to add to a conversation, don't join in. If you want to go fanboy somewhere, do it on facebook or some other crappy social media.

    I also have been having issues with draw distance, especially in the skybox. The level system is beyond stupid, and the combat is... well not great, but fixable. Currently I am running on a 2080ti and an i9 9900k with 32gb ram.
