With over 2105 hours in Odyssey (no joke, love that game) and about 6-hours into Valhalla I am pretty disappointed so far. I have been looking forward to Valhalla since I heard about it. I really am bummed, big time. The game world looks nice enough but it just feels so dead as you take off to explore....explore...explore and find a couple chests of loot and maybe a small outpost or two with nothing else to do. Very hard to level without doing main story missions since that's pretty much all there is to do. They nixed side missions completely, replacing them with some World missions that are few and far between and so far they have been very basic, not very interesting. It just feels like they decided on a path of least effort and saved a ton of money with Valhalla cashing in on the success of Odyssey. It's also obvious that the game will be much shorter than Odyssey since there just isn't nearly the same level of activities to do.
Lastly the whole Raid thing makes taking enemy locations boring, since the challenge is all but gone for the player. No strategy for working your way through tough locations, stealth means nothing anymore since you have this big squad of fighters on steroids that do the fighting for you or get in your way. So not a big fan, really lobotomized the "base takeover" mechanic down to an easy, boring, repetitive event. That's my impression so far. Valhalla feels
