I’ve played Syndicate (barely), completed Origins, and Odyssey was a mixed bag. But this years assassins creed has been so much fun. Here are my personal reasons why.
Combat is so much fun. I didn’t like Odyssey’s combat because for me it didn’t feel good to play. Valhallas’ combat feels better to play for me. I love going berserker, like For Honor, and the brutality is great. It’s not perfect, it’s too animation based and I would like more visually different combos, but I like it more than Odyessey.
I love the setting. I’ve seen comparisons to Witcher 3, and I liked Witcher 3. So it’s it works for me. I love the tone and theme of the setting and it’s probably why I like this game more than Odyssey.(btw if you like Odyssey, that’s great keep liking it 👌). I feel like a Viking in the dark ages of England when playing and it is right up my alley.
The way that they have reintroduced the assassins into the story is a step in the right direction and I hope it gets evolved into playing as an assassin agaiin. The return of the hidden blade was something I looked forward to and liked how Eivor used it, as it would be the way a Viking would use the hidden blade. On a side note, the Advanced assassination skill is a genius way to take out stronger and higher level enemies.
My major complaint with the game is that parkour in this game is boring and uninteresting. Part of why I loved Unity was the parkour system. It was stylish, functional, and (most importantly in an AC game) fun to use. This game and Odyssey have the problem where I feel more like Spider-Man climbing up a wall, than an ancient parkour and rock climbing specialist. This needs to be fixed in future games, in my opinion.
With all this being said, it saddens me to see that some people are saying the game is not very good. It’s their opinion and I respect that but I feel there was an effort to make something great and I can see that.
I love this game and looking forward to the Wrath of the Druids DLC. I am of Irish descent and am excited to explore Ubisoft’s creation of Ireland. I would love to see your opinions and discussions in the comments.
- My ideal Assassin’s Creed game will probably never be made
- AC origins is the single best AC I have played and I won’t apologise for it, it deserves to be said
- Did the new trilogy release in the wrong order?
