Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Reaches For The Heaven
From Norse mythology and entertainment, Axes, the bitter chilling cold of the north. Brotherhood bonds that run deeper than blood are all wonderful things to come. With a few surprise treats and unfortunate mishaps, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla delivers on all these sections.
The Assassin’s Creed franchise has gone north into the snowy tundra of Norse mythology. Much as God of War did a few years earlier. Between combat axes, drinking competitions, and barbaric barbarians, from beginning to end. Players can and can thoroughly enjoy a powerful Viking tale.
When it comes to physical or mental capacity, our principal character, Eivor, is tough, intelligent, and violent. She, or he is a character that is well-rounded and enjoyable to play with. I think I would have appreciated some stronger quirks of personality that you can have when you select those skills or branching choices. But they are just not sufficiently impactful or diverse to make Eivor a memorable character.
The open world is on a par with what we would imagine and desire from the frozen world of Ubisoft. With NPCs that have powerful personalities and feel more interested in your life than normal. It is enjoyable and interesting side quests, exciting mini-games and challenges are mixed in. With this open-world, the only difficulty I find is that I feel like I haven’t done something innovative or slightly different from previous entries.
Yeah, the battles with Viking rap-dis a fun dice game, and comprehensive exploration are fantastic. But the formula is getting a little repetitive. The resemblance to other open-world games does not detract from the game. But it does add to the feeling that with some different weapons, skills, and characters, I’m playing the same game over and over again.
Strongest Point Of Game:
One of the strongest points of the game is probably the customization and update scheme for Eivor. To offer your character passive and active abilities and upgrades, there are three key ability trees that players can upgrade.
In general, we wish there were more abilities; battle combos and such stuff. Fighting may feel a little stale early on, so more skills, and making them a little faster, would have been better for pacing. It is possible to use the three branching trees for stealth, range, or melee combat. Why can’t I use ability points to boost my general stats, such as speed of movement, endurance, and luck in finding treasure? Yeah, we do get some types of improvements, but to distribute my skills, we would have preferred a utility branch/tree.
A dedicated utility skill tree may have provided more variety in gameplay experience and more impactful decisions. Rather than all of it being about combat.
Problems With Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
All the problems with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla are the last things to tackle here. Right now it can be told that this is a fantastic game. It’s a lot of fun, the complexity of the plot, the war, and the world are really engaging, for me more than previous games of Assassin’s Creed were. The bugs and overall lack of polish, however, eat at the consistency of the game.
It can really ruin the experience when serious cut scenes have walls jumping in and out of place or intense fights are bogged down by people being trapped behind geometry. I was never distraught and I never left too far from where a problem would arise with the violent auto-save system. But there were always more problems than a title as large as this could be.
The other big problem with Valhalla that I have is that it seems like it’s an incredibly vanilla game. It feels like any other game that I have played that has the “open-world” feature slapped on it as fascinating or brutal as the plot is or as enjoyable and complex as battle or exploration is. I know how much of a gaming accomplishment this is and how amazing it is as an experience. But it just seems overdone or almost pointless. I know this is a weird complaint, but it feels like reading a book or watching a movie with different characters, arms, and places that have the exact same scenes and sequences.
Assassin’s Creed And Assassin’s Creed
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is that and a little more than you’d expect from the game Assassin’s Creed. So the combat, exploration, and sprawling story will be thoroughly enjoyed by those who enjoy the franchise. And I’m sure that everyone else who picks up the game is going to have a lot of fun doing that.
