I am so disappointed with this Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. It is full of boring parlor games that take weeks to accomplish, and that is supposed to be fun. Stacking rocks, shooting glowing skulls, and the fishing – don’t get me started on how horrible the fishing is. All that water and no fish. During the Viking era, the seas should have been teaming with fish. Not be like a post-apocalyptic environment where a lone fish is swimming in the vastness, and I love the way they disappear after one catch.
I don’t see the excitement and grandeur that I saw in other Assassin Creed games, and I played them all. The sheer awesomeness of Origins, the incredibly exciting gameplay in Odyssey, with that Roman kick, and Syndicate – which today is still my favorite, and they should make a modern version of that game. Nothing within Valhalla even compares with those games.
I am no fortuneteller, but even with the great reviews, I really believe we have seen the last great opening sales for Assassin’s Creed. At least for me – I will probably wait until the price drops on the next one.
