@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
Yes I agree with you. Im astonish at all the amazing reviews out there.Its like Im playing a different game.
I miss terribly the loot/equipment system, funny and interesting characters, compelling story-line and the lovely graphics and gameplay of Odyssy, I probably should go back to Odyssy and give this game a chance to mellow but I have put in a lot of hours in Odyssy and needed so much a new game.
Perhaps Ubisoft might tweak things a little? I dont see much could imporve the slightly bland storyline, but they may be able to add in a few more loot drops and maybe the ability to get materials via dismantling?
Maybe I'm just wishful thinking.
@cell1e Oh no, don't worry, they will probably do that in a DLC
