Ok so i am a darksouls veteran and AC lover i played all the games with exception of Brotherhood. When they moved to a more RPG style in Origins i was really looking forward for it and i really enjoyed it. I have more than 300 hours in Odyssey at least 1 full playthrough doing the whole map and everything. I played Unity after Odyssey and before Valhalla so i can make the comparison between old games and newer easier. The person who made the post is correct in many points about the game. For example stealth is something i got my self complaining about it too. In Odyssey you had to make a stealth build to one-shot enemies, in Valhalla you don't need that anymore i am power 347 i think, on hardest difficults and i can do stealth fine. The problem is in AI one time you can clear a whole city without anyone get a grip of you and sometimes you alert 1 guard and he alerts the whole city and archers shoot at you from miles away. Combat my only complain is that if you want to impliment a stamina system do it right no simple add a stamina bar. I had to fight bosses especially those 3 witches that i had to literally perfect dodge and parry the whole fight else i was out of stamina with 3 dodges and then i was dead.So if you want a stamina system make your fights and enemies attacks around a stamina system and not let the enemy spam attacks and you have 3 dodges else you get slow and eventually die.Healing i dont mind so much since as a dark souls player i learned to be ok even with 0 flusks. What i really liked and hated the same time is loot, i love how important gear feels now, you have to sweat to get the armor you want and upgrade it. The puzzles are way better than odyssey and all previous tiltes where were only mark points on a map that you had to clear out. But for the love of god when you make a game that huge getting every small chest with supplies behind a locked door or a mini puzzle or find 3 keys is getting frustrating.Parkour and movement ok Unity wins by miles best parkour in the series odyssey/valhalla parkour is not existing, this is simple zelda climbing without stamina use and weather effects no parkour in those games still fine for my taste.I loved the side content with mysteries and world events that felt dynamic and engaging since i had to think to solve them eve and not following a marker on my compass to do some fetching quest.Anyway the game is good and i enjoy it since i have 132hours and 70% of the game complete. But they really need to decide in what route they want their games to go from now on, either go a full RPG system which i prefer with stealth mechanics or stick to the old games formula which is more of a main mission with good story and some collectables on the map. That hybrid system is not working from my point of view. Final verdict the game is good at least i like it but those points i a made and some points the person who started the thread made are spot on and need improvement.
