I have been a avid fan ever since news of AC came out in Game Informer back in 2006 and have played ALL major releases since the beginning. I have pre-ordered only 2 games, and have waited(maybe a few weeks) for any other. In all games I have never experienced any problems... EXCEPT for Valhalla. I do not care about early gameplay release bugs/glitches/textures/etc.. The one and ONLY thing that bugs me is(and I have done a test) is the audio. 85% of the time upon loading the game, as soon as I load in and begin playing, all I experience is choppy, laggy, inconsistent game audio. Whether it is music, battle sounds, dialogue; ANY sound is so chopped and inconsistent that it makes the game completely AGGRAVATING and MADDENING. I want to stipulate that I will always love and hold the AC series in a high regard, but this is the FIRST AND ONLY game to give me such a headache. There is no animosity towards any of the developers/crew because of this, but it is a bit disappointing in the 14+ years I've been playing this series. PLEASE. In your next update(which I hope is soon) FIX the audio!!
