20% done, rating this game 6.5 / 10 right now0 Likes/3 Replies/50 ViewsOriginal poster Domo23 1 posts
Ahoy da mates.
My english isnt the best so I try to keep it short.
Overall the game looks nice and makes fun, but all the small fighting and quest bugs [censored] me off.
This is an AAA game and for that money I was expecting better quality.
While speaking of money, I really hate the ingame shop.
Dont get me wrong, I know you try to make some money and ya should getting rich if ya make a very good product, but this item shop feels like a greedy Apple Store.
Its made to milk whales or however ya call it. Its disgusting.
I am lvl 80 right now and completed 20% of the game so far.
I am pretty sure there are still some epic fights waiting for me, but I am considering right now to stop playing it till a proper fix for all these small and big bugs comes out.
Thanks for reading.
Smell ya around.

@domo23 The game is a lot less buggy now than it was at launch, but Ubisoft are releasing patches. I guess the next one will be sometime this month after the invariable holiday shutdown/slowdown. I've personally never had a problem that wasn't solved by a fast-travel or reloading a previous save point - other people have had different experiences though.
There's some microtransactions, but I've ignored them - they game is perfectly playable without them.
I agree that the fighting isn't great. Once you skill up, many of the boss fights can be completed with enough button-mashing and dodging.
However, the story and side missions are interesting enough for me to carry on playing.

@domo23 The game itself in my opinion is great; I sunk more than 200 hours into the game without any grinding. I had an even better experience compared to Origins and Odyssey.
But in terms of technical quality then like you said the game is a let down. I was fortunately to not have any quest-breaking bugs so I could finish the game at least.
I also do not support the way the in-game store goes, all that microtransaction and putting more and stronger gear in the store rather than in the game itself. Hence I do not buy any of those.
I would rate the game probably 8/10, but Ubisoft this time 2/10.
