I'm not sure why anyone is bringing up Origins as it was not in the original comments at all but whatever lol....
No one is saying Valhalla is a bad game, it's just not as good imo as Odyssey with the things they took away.
Graphics are similar (Tie)
Fighting style and finishing I'll give to Valhalla.
Weapons and variety goes to Odyssey.
Skills tree and placement goes to Valhalla.
climbing and maneuvers goes to Odyssey.
Bird utility goes to Odyssey.
Bird variety goes to Valhalla.
Mount variety goes to Valhalla.
Map utility and functions go to Odyssey.
Ship utility and variety goes to Odyssey.
Mercenary and action/reaction freedoms goes to Odyssey.
Someone mentioned Oddysey as being large and bloated I suppose that can be a personal pro or con, I personally liked the size of it so I guess that could be a tie?
There is no perfect game obviously but as I stated before to create a game that is smaller than Oddysy and overall take away more than what is given is where most people are finding their issues with Valhalla.
Why not keep everything good about Odyssey and kick anything bad and then build off of that?
In some cases they took steps backwards which in turn takes away from the game itself.
Anyways the whole point of my post was to bring to light things missing or cheaped out on and not to [censored] on the game as a whole because Valhalla is still a good game but I personally think it could have been quite a bit better given what they already had to use as a template.
So a few things ill point out that you missed followed by things you got right.
You changed the birds ability to lock in and marker, huge deal guys.
You took away the ability to slaughter people and fight Mercs, another gigantic step backwards.
It seems like you messed up the climbing? As in you get stuck on stupid wayyyy more in valhalla.
You took away the map description (when you hover over something and it tells you what it is) this is Super annoying because many of the icons don't actually make sense.
The limited variety of weapons makes the game a bit meh.
Those are my complaints, please FIX!
Valhalla pros added that are not in oddysy.
The ability to reapply skill points are spot on, great job.
I hope this helps your ability to bring the game to greatness but honestly I think many of us are wondering how you made a smaller game than Oddysy and yet you made it worse....
You can redeem yourselves if you fix the things listed above along with the bugs.
