    how? Ignoring that it isn't an assasins game it's just shit by every metric. combat is very bare bones and way too easy, stealth is worse than stealth from AC1, Naval combat is worse than 4 and rogue. The only thing the game offered was being able to swim underwater and I never played origins so maybe that did underwater exploration before odyssey. All in all a phoned in soulless grind fest and obviously extremely woke ontop of everything else

          No alchibades was really that much of degenerate gay. But he was ass fucked by Socrates since a young age so some understanding there. If anything the biggest sin the game did, was play up the homosexuality when in reality it was elitist pedophilia that was rampant. Then the coping faglospherers tried to normalize and gloat about it.

          Anyone that talks about homosexuality in Greece is an undercover pedo apologist and telling half truths. Grown gay relationships weren't a thing. It was kidnapping of young boys into being their prodigy and holding prestige captive for sex.

            wrong retard
            Against Timarchus is a rather famous court case where an Athenian political figure was brought down on the accusation that he, an adult man, was prostituting himself to other men
            note nowhere in this is it explicitly condemning the idea of fucking other men beyond some jokes, nor is this seen as somehow a unique case, the focus is on him supposedly whoring himself out.
            retards like you pretending as though gay relationships didn't exist are as retarded as the tumblrites pretending it was literally a 1:1 society with sexual mores like those of today.

              No one lived together that was seen as weird. Being a bottom was seen as a disgusting humiliation ritual. Artwork displaying this is something is like 1 5% or something of found artwork.

              What you said before fits with what I said, it was degenerate elitist shit that normal people didn't really do. And in fact most of the writing about homosexual relationships was about a male child and an adult.

                Artwork depicting homosexual acts was usually reserved for Dionysus and Bacchus.
                Dionysus was basically the personification of lust and sex. Bacchus was the personification of drunken stupor, meaning you get so drunk you'll fuck anything. Greek art depicted many varied scenes, and to claim that representations of the Gods which Greeks themselves saw as somewhat immoral and not bound by human limitations and morality is simply silly.
                The Greeks themselves questioned the moral values of their Gods as depicted in Homer specifically. They fuck, kill and screw over anyone they want. The God's aren't human, so their depictions focused on the extremes which human nature was capable of.

                >Artwork depicting homosexual acts was usually reserved for Dionysus and Bacchus.
                No. Dionysus and Bacchus are the same thing, there was no special interest in gay shit with his cult, he did have at least one young male lover (a satyr I think) that appears in artworks but that describes many mythological figures.

                >Dionysus was basically the personification of lust and sex. Bacchus was the personification of drunken stupor, meaning you get so drunk you'll fuck anything.
                No, no, all wrong. Aphrodite/Venus was the personification of sex, Eros/Cupid the personification of lust. Dionysus/Bacchus is not two separate figures. He is a god of madness, religious mania, altered states, drunkenness, certain vegetation, and some other shit. He has fertility associations, and he has androgynous qualities.

                Gay shit was not really cultic, it could be associated with certain hero cults just because their notability is being gay with so and so (like worshipping the boy lover of Hercules at his alleged grave). Generally speaking, there was some variance by region but the most common form was where the upper classes of urban Greeks would have pubescent boy lovers/students who they taught in the ways of public life and also molested (it was shameful to take it in the ass, it renders you a woman, so the less shameful version was to rub your dick between the boy's oiled thighs. Being the pitcher was not considered abnormal sexual behavior for an adult man). This was a widely culturally celebrated form of love to them. In terms of adult male lovers, it's not common in myth or in historical sources, but fellow youths can be seen kissing at the gymnasium in surviving artworks, and there is the Sacred Band of Thebes which was supposed to consist of pairs of male lovers (so they must be at least somewhat close in age? Probably still likely to have had the man/bitch dynamic of Greek degeneracy)

              Or more realistically these were trumped up charges for the sake of optics.
              >proven guilty = filthy homo
              >proven innocent = filthy homo who got away with it
              It's literally the same as being accused of being a pedo today, nothing you do will ever wash that stink off.

              Also the fact that Timarchus was brought to the court on these charges proves that homosexuality was seen as criminal and wrong.
              ALSO, the idea of Greeks fucking boys has been debunked for centuries. Read this. More than likely it was patronage, an older man would take fancy in a young man and coach him. The "love" here was friendship developed over many years.

                Are Roman critiques based on race or are they based on culture and snobbery? Are there specific political reasons for there derogatory accounts?
                Caesar talked negatively about the northerners (Gauls, Germans, protobelgians etc.) specifically because he was trying to convince the Roman populace that their civilization HAD to be enforced to save them from their backwards ways. He was trying to justify his invasions to the general Roman population. Caesars works are entirely political, and his descriptions serve a purpose other than "lmao I'm racist Britons live in swamp LOOOL"
                Tacitus for instance provides us with a rather nuanced take on the Britons in Agricola and downright praises certain aspects of the Germanic culture as found in Germania.
                Why did Livy praise the character strengths of the Carthaginians for instance? He was attempting to create a worthy enemy for the Romans, as to him the Romans triumphed over a great peoples due to their character strengths. This was done glorify the past, and my point here is that (nearly) ALL ancient writing was created for multiple purposes, and one must study them rather than blindly read them.

                First of all religion isn't a race. Also I was talking about Romans/Greeks specifically as this is where we find most of our sources. Also this claim of the chosen peoples was conjured because Judea was a cultural melting pot with peoples from all over the known world intermingling. It was a way to differentiate the garden gnomes from the multitude of other cultures present. The garden gnomes have always been a rather small section of the world, and they have always fought to differentiate themselves from other cultures, specifically for survival. If they didn't make such claims then they would not exist today.

                Also, in Judaism we find Babylonian/Hittite/Egyptian etc. influences, so this idea of the garden gnomes being racist is rather silly. If they were racist why did they invite other religious customs into their faith?

                What you're talking about are edomites, who are evil and immoral beyond belief. The Israelites are white people, and that's why the Edomites (modern garden gnomes who live in "Israel") hate and do everything they can to displace the true Israelites, because if they are successful then their Great Lie becomes historical fact.

                Too bad for them they are stupid as fuck though, and the mask has already slipped beyond repair. They dun goofed in a very big way, and now its only a matter of time.

        It was literally a feminist version of Greece, random warrior NPCs would be women, there was a huge fucking black "woman" "pirate" who wanted to stop other pirates from slave trading?? (This was the primary activity of pirates). And every other shitty little filler quest would have yet another "strong female character". The writing is such fucking dogshit, as is the repetitive gameplay design.

        Also women being allowed into most men's activities like the symposium would mean they were a prostitute.

        Also way too many Greek NPCs look dark enough to be indians.

        It's a shame because it's a good idea for a setting, it looks nice and it runs well.

          Valhalla is even worse in that regard.

          The "muh strong wimmin" thing at least made some kinda sense in Odyssey's setting due to the mythological aspect which featured female warriors in text and writing. Plus, Lesbos.

      Agree with you. The perfect asscreed game doesn't exist. If unity didn't have the bullshit snipers that 360 noscope you from across the map with their victorian era pistols, it would be perfect. We'll never get that and it saddens me.

        Brotherhood was as close to perfection that the series will ever have, it was and will continue to be downhill from there.

          It was good for the system it was designed to support. Press X to win works if you overload a guy with enemies. It makes much more sense thematically to have lower number of people with more defensive capabilities. An assassin should be weak against groups. Without guns, unity is easily the pinnacle of the series.

            >Without guns, unity is easily the pinnacle of the series.
            Unity's combat is still as onenote as Ezio's at the end of the day. Guns or not it's still parry simulator and even then it took out interesting options like grabbing or disarming, which is curious since the Kenway games had disarming as part of the 'Break defense' options.
            It is harder by virtue of requiring more effort to put down an enemy, but it's tedious instead of engaging. Which could be considered okay as a way to encourage stealth.
            Larger problem is the parkour system change. It's fast, flashy and with plenty of flow but it removed a lot of the ability to control it manually that the player had in the old games. People hailing it as the best parkour system in the series is problematic as it is being taken as the basis for the "return to roots" Mirage, encouraging more automatic but prettier parkour over fully manual climbing.

              You make some good points but I disagree. The new games are way more tedious than unity. I think it was the perfect blend of press x to win and the sponginess of new enemies. I also don't agree with your assessment of the parkour. Sure, it does auto-pilot sometimes but that's much more preferable to missing a grab and dying cause your stick was 1 degree too far. I can't count how many times ezio from brotherhood jumped from the hideout and landed right on the sliver of dock instead of the giant fucking river.

                Or failing the underground time trials because Ezio schizophrenically catapulted himself backwards off of a high ledge losing a minute and a half of progress.
                Even then I would happily take Brotherhood 2 over what they're vomiting out nowadays.

                Black Flag is the first AC game I played and it literally made me rage. It’s got dogshit combat, controls that feel awful, ugly ass menu, dumb missions, story that is as interesting as a plank of wood. I’m convinced people like this game because they like pirates. It’s a terrible game that truly made me realize how wrong IGN and reddit is. I returned this game at a 80% loss within 24 hours just to get it out of my house

                I don't mean to say the new formula is better either, Unity is definitely the last good AC we've gotten, and it balanced the gear system far better than the full blown RPG we have now, adding padding upon padding so that they can push you to buy MTX, with an open world so large yet so uninteresting it comes at the cost of the parkour, which is one of the foundations of the series.
                That's the thing at the end of the day. Is there a point to parkour where you're not allowed to make mistakes? Sometimes it will leave you crashing and burning but in exchange you are free to make your own routes and to really think of the architecture to your advantage. Wall ejects and catch ledge are what makes the whole system come together. Maybe there's a sweetspot that can be reach like a toggle between "smart parkour" and manual control

              Parry sim or not, Unity has the best combat pacing of them all.

              I usually play AC without hud. No hud at all. And Unity is the only one that isn't brain-dead. Without hud, your parries actually need proper timing and gunners can easily one shot you or at least would you gravely.

              That, together with the best and most populated city they ever done, will always put it in a top spot for me.
              Not to mention that all the quests, including the co-op quests, are unique. There's no copy pasted activities in Unity. Which is something they threw out with Syndicate already again.

      I'm sorry my man i had such high hopes for this game after finishing all of Odessey twice but covid and ubicucks botched it beyond belief. Completing it 100 percent felt like a chore whereas in odyssey every island or state was a new adventure. They removed the fucking gear drops and gave us like 10 shitty weapons and don't even get me started on the retarded inclusion of stamina bar which only serves to slow combat down.

        >whereas in odyssey every island or state was a new adventure
        I don't know what you're smoking, but the only "new adventure" I felt was in Lesbos and the Minotaur island. Everything else was repetitive nonsense over and over again with the same camps, the same tombs which are literally copy pasted, the same sanctuary setups where if you're a good boy they added a second floor, and the same randomly generated content. The villages barely had people in them, the towns were virtually dead (Siwa has more people than Sparta and Athens, it's ridiculous), and the ships were unbelievably unbalanced and unfun.
        >They removed the fucking gear drops
        Because EVERYONE bitched about the Diablo loot. It is by far the most complained about aspect of Odyssey that everyone wanted removed because it stifled your character, forced you to hunt down specific randomly generated stat equipment (Because Legendary armor was worthless due to giving you four less ability slots), and forced you into specific builds leading to either Assassin or Hunter being left to rot in the vast majority of builds.
        >don't even get me started on the retarded inclusion of stamina bar which only serves to slow combat down.
        The stamina bar is a non-issue and complaining about it means you're in the first 10 hours of the game. You will be dodge canceling almost every other attack in the endgame and you regenerate all you lost from that dodge + gain more stamina just from doing about one or two hits no matter what weapon you run. Shields, flails, daggers, swords, scythes, claymores, Dane axes, bearded axes, spears, it's all the same.

          idk dawg off the top of my head, except what you have already stated, there was that love triangle island, the beast hunting quest, the cyclopes one and the one where you fight that which that drugs you and the medusa one. There was the one with the dude who impersonated you and on the same island was the Oedipus quest. There were also two different arena quests (actual arena and battle of 100 hands) and plenty of others where you fucked bitches in the end most notable being the twin sisters one. I can't remember others rn but in general i had more fun fucking around and doing side content in odyssey than i had in valhalla.

          >The stamina bar is a non-issue
          by your own admission the stamina bar is pointless.

          About loot, i was decked out in full legendary gear my main piece being jasons fleece which lore(codex pages) wise was used by altair to create ezios final armor in ac2 alongwith the legendary poison dagger for health recharge on every hit iirc. You could also change the skin on your gear to that of other gear which was removed in valhalla.

            >love triangle island
            Yeah, I guess Kyra and Thaletas were also good. The Medusa one is Lesbos. Beast hunting I genuinely do not remember outside of the chick asking me to do it so I could unlock Death Arrows because the bow is so weak without them. The fights themselves were pretty lame outside of the boar who was ridiculously annoying but fun. There's two Cyclops islands, one of which is the one you visit as soon as you leave Kephallonia and one in the center in that lava pool which was added in a patch but I didn't find those "exciting" personally.
            >but in general i had more fun fucking around and doing side content in odyssey than i had in valhalla.
            I found the side quests to be about on par across both games. In terms of exploration I much more enjoyed England because it felt far more varied, I didn't feel like I was constantly entering copy pasted camps, and tombs were actual tombs. Even when I went back for the crossover content in Odyssey I still felt like they were making a lot of the same bad decisions in the map in terms of repetition.
            >the stamina bar is pointless.
            Pointless, yes, but an issue? No.
            >i was decked out in full legendary gear
            Like I said, legendary armor is a waste of your resources to equip and upgrade. You can apply its legendary engraving to another piece of armor as long as you have found the full set and legendary armor requires you to give up four passive slots which is a huge amount of damage/versatility in exchange for that one legendary engraving. The only legendary stuff worth equipping was weapons because you could have two legendary engravings applied (One from the weapon and one you apply to it) with no downside. You made the game harder on yourself by not gearing in epic armor.
            >which was removed in valhalla.
            It's not anymore, it was added in about a year ago but you have to pay silver for it and you can't preview what you want so it's crappy. You basically have to reload saves if you blow a few hundred silver.

                I completely forgot about that one. Yeah, that one was good too. Valhalla did sort of the same thing with a guy and a bear if I remember right. I also liked the False Eagle Bearer quest like you said. Thinking about it you also forgot the blacksmith one where you can bang the blacksmith, kill the bandit, and then get that 10/10 line from the son in the cage.

                I'm glad you managed to like Odyssey more but for me it's one of the worst AC games. I felt like it was a constant slog. Valhalla was a bit better but it's still pretty bad for me and it had way too much grind.

                Literally the worst of the bunch in pretty much all regards, made for the most brain-dead normies possible.

                I at least get people liking Origins and Odyssey, because they're just bad at what they want to be, but can be ok when you then your brain off. But Valhalla is bad all around and no amount of personal ignorance is smoothing anything over.

                It had better fort and castle setups than either Origins or Odyssey, better combat that didn't force you to forego an entire damage type unless you built a very specific build, way more variety in combat because of the dual wielding working with any combination of weapons, significantly better stealth prioritization in terms of area design with every area having tons of ways to get around without tipping anyone off, a pretty great DLC in Siege of Paris and an alright DLC in Wrath of the Druids since both of them actually made you care during the story for once with decent characters, and it at least did something with modern day that wasn't spitting all over it like Layla did in Odyssey or setup in Origins.

                Just because the characters are some of the worst in the series, England itself is kind of visually bland, the story is easily one of the worst, and River Raids exist doesn't stop it from being propped up by everything else. I cared as much about Eivor as I did with the Eagle Bearer i.e. not at all. I cared as much about Odyssey's story as I did with Valhalla story i.e. not at all. The exploration was by far the worst in Odyssey with some of the most lifeless and bland areas in all the series while requiring so much repetitive camp, sanctuary, and tomb clearing in the exact same setup almost every single time you found a new one that I hated it.

                Valhalla's bad, Odyssey is worse, and Origins is one of the better games in the series overall despite its flaws.

                Stealth is completely shit in Valhalla. For some reason they brought back social stealth but it does absolutely nothing. Tons of places where mooks will just stand there facing each other and you can't do shit without getting detected and then everyone in a 10 mile radius is suddenly trying to chase you down. It also doesn't help that they have somehow managed to fuck up parkouring.
                In Odyssey it was fluid, map out dudes with Ikaros, take a look and then mop them up. In Valhalla you get to stealth kill some of them and then have to mow down the rest. It's just tedious.
                >better combat that didn't force you to forego an entire damage type
                Can't even begin to fathom what you're referring to. Valhalla's moves and animations are sloppy and combat is way too reliant on waiting 30 secs until the enemy musters up the courage to take a swing at you.
                After playing for some time and gaining some skills in Odyssey I could wade in and mow down dudes and still not get bored. In Valhalla the whole budget Dark Souls crap is so fucking tedious that it's way better to just pick up the Druid DLC and some other spear and poke 5 mooks to death in 3 moves just to get it over with.

                >Nah.
                Yes. They have actual innards that aren't just an outside area, they have grass and hiding spots all over the place, they have multiple items that hang above you can shoot that enemies occasionally patrol to, and so on. They're also significantly more varied in how they are set up. One example being that giant castle you go to for story missions that has the upper portions of it destroyed but if you climb around the side you can reach up there and start picking people off one by one, you have
                That one Cult-owned fortress, that one encampment very early on in the game that has two stories (It's near The Snake if I remember right), and some of the DLC strongholds are about as varied as Odyssey gets.
                >Tons of places...
                Considering I've stealth cleared pretty much every area and make that my first choice to do stuff I have no idea what you're talking about. Shoot an arrow or slow time.
                >Can't even begin to fathom what you're referring to.
                Odyssey forces you to give up Hunter or Assassin as a viable moveset since you're forced into Warrior regardless. If you pick Assassin then Hunter does piss poor damage. If you pick Hunter then Assassin does piss poor damage. The bow is completely unusable for doing anything more than chip damage to an enemy if you don't focus on it even if you have Death Arrows. Meanwhile Valhalla lets you use whatever.
                >is way too reliant on waiting 30 secs until the enemy musters up the courage to take a swing at you.
                Stop standing around. Dodge cancel. You can play like that with any weapon you want it's just gonna take a bit longer to kill if you're not spears. Buffs cause any enemy that can parry/dodge you to immediately get stunned for two seconds unable to dodge. Only Bannerets can block you after it but if you just get to their back they can't do anything while getting hit. Odyssey gives you more chances to spam skills because of FotB but you can still run at any group and start spamming whatever you want in Valhalla.

                Whoops, ran out of room. You also have that swamp castle that has a killbox entrance, but if you go around it you can whistle people to the wall, stab them off the wall, and then go around stabbing and picking people off.
                You have the castle where you find the dead king and that crazy lady locked in the basement which does have some enemies sitting in a room looking at each other, but you don't need to kill them and if you do then just whistle or fire a Plague of Rats/Incendiary Trap at them. Everyone else can be stabbed as you slink around the bushes or on the fortifications.
                You have the bandit swamp camp they constantly use for the daily/weekly missions with the two wolf head guys whose name I forgot at the door. The only ones that get aggro there without you being able to do anything is three guys on the outskirts watching each other. There's two other guys on another pier but you can just double arrow Hunter Bow one's head and back away and the other guy will be searching unable to find you.
                You also have another bandit camp that has a OotA member which has the one fat guy usually as your target and is used in the daily/weekly missions. You can stab every single person including the fat guy without ever being seen once the OotA guy is dead. If the OotA guy is still alive then you simple kill everyone but those two, dual headshot the OotA guy, then hide in the bushes or behind one of the towers.

                Stealth in the new trilogy all relies on the fact that enemies instantly look where a shot came from if you miss, and look if you hit someone. As long as you aren't being seen shooting the arrow you can duck and they won't be aggro unless they didn't die from being shot by an arrow. If they didn't die then the guy who was shot aggros for a second unless there's someone around him, and only then will other people aggro.

                No, Odyssey's forts were way more organic and once again, stealth was fluid and I could stealth mop up a fort in minutes once I figured shit out and got upgrades/skills.
                >Odyssey forces you to give up Hunter or Assassin as a viable moveset
                Not a real issue since Hunter is good enough even when gimped and the handful of times I actually had to resort to bows - think Medusa and giant cyclops dude, maybe - I just respecced on the fly and that was that. Warrior/assa was my preferred way of playing anyway.
                >it's just gonna take a bit longer
                Way longer. Spears mean they can't touch you - especially with the turbospears which just stunlock enemies - and you don't have to bother with the "let's take turns doing shit, because that's so much fun after the 5000th time". There are simply way, way too many enemies for Valhalla's playstyle.

                >stealth was fluid
                Stealth only became fluid if you were a 100% crit build because that is the only build that could Rush Assassinate without consequence and kill any enemy in one shot. Even if you went into an Assassin build you still couldn't one-shot the highest tier captain enemies let alone mercenaries since it still relied on rolling a crit chance on top of Critical Assassiante, so if you ended up rushing to one of them you couldn't do anything but lightly damage them.
                >Hunter is good enough even when gimped and the handful of times I actually had to resort to bows
                It isn't. The entire reason I'm complaining about it is because it isn't and it wasn't even viable until I turned to a 100% crit build. You deal chip damage if you're not specced into Hunter.

                >Have you even played Odyssey? The game that literally copy pastes sanctuaries, camps, tombs, and even makes major barracks identical to each other across multiple landmasses?

                To be fair historians praise Odyssey’s accurate setting. And don’t be acting like Origins didn’t do copy and pasting, especially the tombs.

                It probably comes down to which setting you like more between Origins and Odyssey. If a person is saying Origins is significantly better it’s a biased opinion. In fact Odyssey improved upon Origins in terms of mechanics. Valhalla was a few steps back from both Origins and Odyssey, it’s like they tried to strike a balance and just ended up missing the mark, while getting rid of cool world details such as the burial aspect

                >And don’t be acting like Origins didn’t do copy and pasting, especially the tombs.
                Origins has a handful of tombs and the only copy paste is them reusing those giant statues in one side room. For me it's Origins >>>>> Valhalla > Odyssey with the massive caveat that Valhalla and Odyssey both have awful maps, characters, story, grind, and repetition.

                Maybe with 5 enemies in the whole game and even then they were down to 10% health so just kick them in the balls and that's it.
                No idea why people are talking about spongy enemies, those were a complete non issue if you took a couple of minutes to do some side quests. Well unless you want to gimp yourself with heavy level scaling.

                Which are prevalent in every fort. You could only reliably one-shot the lowest tier mooks without a build and anything slightly stronger than spear guys (Like people with shields) was a coin toss. Anything higher that has a gold name at all requires an Assassin build + Critical Assassination.
                >No idea why people are talking about spongy enemies, those were a complete non issue if you took a couple of minutes to do some side quests.
                I was a person who did do those side quests and once I hit level 35-40 everything became a damage sponge. I could only reliably kill stuff if I used Critical Assassinate or Hero Strike and I also had to land a crit on the former. It wasn't until I completely switched to a 100% crit build that I started killing stuff in like 4-5 hits without abilities or one hit with.

                Odyssey was the lightning in the bottle they were trying to recapture since they made AC 2. Yes the leveled gear sucks but overall the game was fun and the male protag was actually interesting again for once.

                Good thing I had a warrior focused build with assassin secondaries in my AC game. Bows are shit anyway and Predator shot is enough to last through the whole game. Why bother with archery when one can just rush assassinate a camp of mooks and mop up whomever's left standing with a warrior move?

                So did I up until my late 30s when I realized it simply wasn't working. Used Rush Assassinate and Critical Assassinate a lot but it still wasn't enough for a lot of enemy types unless I hit that % crit chance on top of it. Rush Assassinate would either terminate itself very quickly because I simply couldn't one-shot even basic mooks or I'd run to a point where I came up against a gold boy and did 1/4th of their health at most and alerted the entire camp.
                >Why bother with archery when one can just rush assassinate a camp of mooks and mop up whomever's left standing with a warrior move?
                Because Hunter can one-shot a Governor + all his guards with Ghost of Artemis and an explosive arrows, you can kill 2+ enemies in one shot with GoA, you can end entire wars in seconds with that one thing that locks onto enemies + explosive arrows, you can end boarding fights in a couple seconds from the Adrestia itself, you can regain adrenaline on Headshot so you can Predator Arrow infinitely provided there are enough low tier mooks to resupply on, and so on.
                Hunter is incredible and just as amazing as Assassin when built up, especially in a 100% crit build since nearly everything gets one-shot.

                Please go. Assassin comes online MUCH earlier. With a warrior focus you're pretty much set starting from around 25 and you just get increasingly stronger with drops, upgrades and more skills. You need what, 3 or 4 skills from assa tree and that's that, rest is just gravy.

                Like I said, I was Warrior/Assassin and even at 35ish to 40 I wasn't even one-shotting gold guys unless I hit a crit on a Critical Assassinate. Rush Assassinate could kill most (Not all) low tier mooks and would tend to put me in situations where I had to opt for combat because I could only weaken whoever I targeted next rather than kill. Were you playing on Normal? Because I was on Hard the whole time and only jumped up to Nightmare once I started hitting 70% or so crit chance. Warrior damage felt like the worst aspect of it, Spartan Kick, the bull dash was so-so, that one shout thing barely did any damage, and it took me quite a lot of melee hits to kill a single enemy anything.

                Hero Strike and Fury of the Bloodline were my bread and butter for nearly all melee battles and FotB wasn't for damage but for the +3 adrenaline. Everything else was just for healing or buying time until I got HS/FotB up again.

                I found Normal way too braindead in the early game which is why I immediately switched off of it myself. I wanted some sort of challenge which it gave me a reasonable amount of for a while, but the further into the game I went the worst it got on the sponginess.

                Odyssey might have had too spongy enemies, but at least enemies proved a challenge due to the lvl system. If you wanted any sort of challenge from VH youd have to play it blindfolded.

                What you say about the world design doesn't even make any sense. Especially when people literally regard that as one of the few reasons to play Odyssey.

                It absolutely did. Origins at least tried to do stealth designs so you get great ones like Siwa, that big one on the way to Alexandria, or that two story one in Alexandria but a lot of them are just cave ones you can't do much in, extremely open outdoor ones where there's no stealth involved, "take a village and call it an encampment", and
                >but at least enemies proved a challenge due to the lvl system.
                The enemies weren't a challenge, that alone is proven by 100% crit builds relying on being two-shot by enemies. You could iframe through almost anything for seconds at a time thanks to Fury of the Bloodline existing, Hero Strike would one-shot anything even if you didn't put points into Assassin, you get healed whenever you use any ability, you can do Spread Shot with Explosive Arrows and one-shot entire hordes of enemies, Rush Assassinate one-shots up to five enemies and disintegrates their bodies if you're running any Assassin skills at all, you can shout which instantly stuns everyone and highly damages them around you (Or slows down time if you did the DLC), etc.
                Bannerets are harder than most enemies in Odyssey. Again, the Diablo Loot system was the most hated aspect of Odyssey. Half of Valhalla's choices are because of complaints people had of Odyssey, including insta-kill Hidden Blades.

                I completely agree that the game is way too easy and simple to break, but Odyssey was on the opposite spectrum of easy but with damage sponges and annoying to break.
                >as the entire game flow being the most artificial and copy pasted, AC has EVER been.
                Have you even played Odyssey? The game that literally copy pastes sanctuaries, camps, tombs, and even makes major barracks identical to each other across multiple landmasses? The game that has the exact same wall house villages and the exact same port city designs almost verbatim across multiple areas? People who say this about Odyssey didn't do even half the content I can guarantee it.

                I keep skipping to next bits, argh. "and small encampments where hiding isn't really viable". Odyssey makes giant forts that are better than how Origins did them overall but they were far more repetitive as you did more and more of them because not that much changed between each one outside of the DLC. They're multilevel, sure, but they also offer no hiding spots, there's next to nowhere to go outside of a very few specific forts that have those grass areas you can pass under to cheese the AI in. You can't even hide bodies anymore.

                >significantly better stealth prioritization

                >Considering I've stealth cleared pretty much every area and make that my first choice
                Not them, but yea fuck that noise.
                The reason why people liked Origins and Odyssey is because it wasn't trying to be AC, which is crap anyways.
                Valhalla caters to people like you: morons, which is why they throw anything in without any direction whatsoever, in the hopes that someone would say:

                Without realising that the incentive doesn't match the gameplay offered, because nothing matters and everything is copy pasted crap anyways.

                Look at you praising a game because it has some ropes spanned across a copy pasted bandit camp, and dismissing Origins and Odyssey for actually having a coherent world and combat design that offered way more interesting incentive that shithalla ever could

                >The reason why people liked Origins and Odyssey is because it wasn't trying to be AC, which is crap anyways.
                The reason people dislike Odyssey is because it's not even an AC game which is what people wanted. Guillemot literally had to come out an address everyone hating Odyssey by saying that Odyssey will have "A Unity within an Odyssey".

                >Without realising that the incentive doesn't match the gameplay offered
                You can make this argument for any AC game at all all the way back to AC1 because they all are designed around the fact that at any moment you can get into a fight and counter kill everyone significantly faster making stealth pointless. You had to purposely participate in the stealth gameplay even in the original game so making this argument will apply to the entire series, not just Valhalla.

                Earlier in the year, I got about a fourth of the way in. Prior to that, 2018 or 2019. I'm not denying Origins doesn't have good forts but I felt like in terms of design they did far better in Valhalla. Origins had hiding spots and had vantage points but areas still felt more repetitive in their designs and a lot of Origins/Odyssey fort design felt like forcing you to clean up the outside walls before you even touched the inside because most of the soldiers were on them.

                You're not proving me wrong, you're basically just copy pasting your "I liked this shitty game more becase it catered to my playstyle", when most people who played it absolutely hated on Valhalla, and even Odyssey, which was memed as "bland open world" is now fondly remembered over VH's terrible design.
                > Again, the Diablo Loot system was the most hated aspect of Odyssey.
                Cherry picking. I could counter by saying that one of the people's biggest issues withVH is the lack of equip variety giving no incentive to even do 90% of the shit they spread across the world but we'd be going in circles forever.
                >Have you even played Odyssey?
                Yes, and despite the copy pasting they love to do in these games, it felt more natural and organic than VH could ever do.

                >Cherry picking
                How is it cherry picking when Valhalla specifically made it a point to get rid of the entire system and included instant assassinations? If it worked they would have simply improved on it. Instead they threw the baby out with the bathwater and now you have this upgrade system for set equips instead. They even advertised the game on the fact instant assassinations were added back in because of all the complaining and balanced the game's EXP based on i.
                >it felt more natural and organic
                Then you haven't played Odyssey because the tombs being copy paste is a constant, sanctuaries with the exact same soldier layout is a constant, and the camps that are set up the exact same way with the two animal cages, the tent on the left, the giant pole in the center, and the weapon rack/chest on the right.
                None of the areas blend into each other because you'll go from normal villages to villages inside of mountains by going like ten feet and then see those same villages in the mountains in multiple other areas set up the exact same way. Sanctuaries are just slapped down at random in towns and they're set up the same way with it very rarely having a second floor that has nothing in it.

                No, tripfag, people don't want AC. Which is literally why AC4 is still hailed as (one of) the best: because it has the least amount of AC shit in it.

                Which again, is why Odyssey is now fondly regarded as an open world action-rpg, while Valhalla is shat on wherever it goes, as an artificial frankenstein of a game.

                Then why even have the Assassin playstyle? That's what you're not getting. If Odyssey just wants to be about running around attacking people with magic abilities then why does it exist at all? It's an entire skill tree they had to work and design on on top of making skills and then they had to design forts around using said skills.
                >The people who complained about the lack of AC in Odyssey are the same people who think the modern day story is good and still has a place in the games. Meaning: retards.

Again, the CEO had to come out and address how many people were complaining about Odyssey. The last time he had to do something like that was when Unity came out in its massive buggy state and people were furious. That should tell you more than anything how different your opinion is to everyone else.
                >is why Odyssey is now fondly regarded as an open world action-rpg
                Yes, not an AC game, and you have to turn your brain off at all the glaring issues Odyssey itself has to praise it even in its own vacuum. Diablo loot meas you now need to make builds, but builds mean you lock out one-third of your gameplay abilities in a game that always expects all three as options. Stealth exists but you deal piss poor damage unless you heavily invest in it. Damage sponges become ridiculously spongy unless you run very specific builds or utilize the poison mechanic. EXP balance is unbelievably terrible unless you know out the gate that non-timed bounty board missions give you % based EXP.

                Can you get banned for savescumming heka chests in Origins?

                Just use Cheat Engine to give yourself the items instead. Don't even bother with the lootboxes. Also, no, you won't be banned.

                Except there's armor, weapons, shields, and abilities in virtually every major area you visit. Even random camps give you equips on occasion. Even Origins only gave you one or two equips per camp and they were almost always one of the common weapons, not Legendary, but people didn't seem to take issue with that.
                >No you can't, because you didn't get what I was saying.
                Except I did understand what you were saying. Odyssey is making the game more action-based so stealth is discouraged and not a priority. But here's the thing, AC1 itself tried encouraging stealth but ended up with melee combat being the better choice in every single situation and ended up encouraging running into a horde and counter killing them. It makes the stealth aspect of the game pointless and has been since the first game. This doesn't mean that people didn't participate in the stealth aspect of the games despite them being more and more geared towards combat over stealth each game.

                You're handwaving the stealth existing entirely when it's one-third of the game. Areas are designed around it existing, Ikaros exists to mark enemies so you can stealth kill them with your bow or assassinations, entire weapon and armor types exist to buff assassinations and bows specifically, entire passives exist for it such as damage/crit chance at full health, adrenaline on assassination, and so on. Yeah, so what if Odyssey focused more on melee combat? A huge chunk of it is still built around the stealth existing.

                Except, again, they didn't "throw it out". It's right there with multiple mechanics tied to it and areas designed around it like the forts.
                >Its as much a part of the game, as stealth sections/options in any other nonstealth game.
                That makes no sense. This isn't a minor part of the game. This isn't a "Stealth section" or "Stealth option", this is literally 1/3rd or arguably 2/3rds of the gameplay tied to it. Hunter and Assassin both contribute to stealth combat. Ghost of Artemis isn't just some random skill you fight enemies with in the heat of battle, its specific intent is to kill people from behind walls. Rush Assassinate requires you to not be detected to even work.
                >Except its still reduced by 90%, which makes the open world the emptiest yet.
                Then by this logic AC1 is the emptiest because there's nothing to find at all except for flags that don't unlock anything and until Origins happened there was zero reason to explore outside of money and very rarely skins. Why even bother doing side quests in Unity? You'll just get a 1* weapon anyway with one exception.
                Saying that 99% of the equips you find being useless and used for money/fodder with an extra step makes the game "full of life" is ridiculous because all it added was a 10+ minute period where you had to sift through your entire inventory for stuff to sell every few hours and micromanage your inventory because those items you find are almost all worthless.

                You're not proving me wrong, you're basically just copy pasting your "I liked this shitty game more becase it catered to my playstyle", when most people who played it absolutely hated on Valhalla, and even Odyssey, which was memed as "bland open world" is now fondly remembered over VH's terrible design.
                > Again, the Diablo Loot system was the most hated aspect of Odyssey.
                Cherry picking. I could counter by saying that one of the people's biggest issues withVH is the lack of equip variety giving no incentive to even do 90% of the shit they spread across the world but we'd be going in circles forever.
                >Have you even played Odyssey?
                Yes, and despite the copy pasting they love to do in these games, it felt more natural and organic than VH could ever do.

                To be fair historians praise Odyssey’s accurate setting. And don’t be acting like Origins didn’t do copy and pasting, especially the tombs.

                It probably comes down to which setting you like more between Origins and Odyssey. If a person is saying Origins is significantly better it’s a biased opinion. In fact Odyssey improved upon Origins in terms of mechanics. Valhalla was a few steps back from both Origins and Odyssey, it’s like they tried to strike a balance and just ended up missing the mark, while getting rid of cool world details such as the burial aspect

                >significantly better stealth prioritization

                >Nah.
                Yes. They have actual innards that aren't just an outside area, they have grass and hiding spots all over the place, they have multiple items that hang above you can shoot that enemies occasionally patrol to, and so on. They're also significantly more varied in how they are set up. One example being that giant castle you go to for story missions that has the upper portions of it destroyed but if you climb around the side you can reach up there and start picking people off one by one, you have
                That one Cult-owned fortress, that one encampment very early on in the game that has two stories (It's near The Snake if I remember right), and some of the DLC strongholds are about as varied as Odyssey gets.
                >Tons of places...
                Considering I've stealth cleared pretty much every area and make that my first choice to do stuff I have no idea what you're talking about. Shoot an arrow or slow time.
                >Can't even begin to fathom what you're referring to.
                Odyssey forces you to give up Hunter or Assassin as a viable moveset since you're forced into Warrior regardless. If you pick Assassin then Hunter does piss poor damage. If you pick Hunter then Assassin does piss poor damage. The bow is completely unusable for doing anything more than chip damage to an enemy if you don't focus on it even if you have Death Arrows. Meanwhile Valhalla lets you use whatever.
                >is way too reliant on waiting 30 secs until the enemy musters up the courage to take a swing at you.
                Stop standing around. Dodge cancel. You can play like that with any weapon you want it's just gonna take a bit longer to kill if you're not spears. Buffs cause any enemy that can parry/dodge you to immediately get stunned for two seconds unable to dodge. Only Bannerets can block you after it but if you just get to their back they can't do anything while getting hit. Odyssey gives you more chances to spam skills because of FotB but you can still run at any group and start spamming whatever you want in Valhalla.

                >Considering I've stealth cleared pretty much every area and make that my first choice
                Not them, but yea fuck that noise.
                The reason why people liked Origins and Odyssey is because it wasn't trying to be AC, which is crap anyways.
                Valhalla caters to people like you: morons, which is why they throw anything in without any direction whatsoever, in the hopes that someone would say:
                >I could approach it the way I want it!
                Without realising that the incentive doesn't match the gameplay offered, because nothing matters and everything is copy pasted crap anyways.

                Look at you praising a game because it has some ropes spanned across a copy pasted bandit camp, and dismissing Origins and Odyssey for actually having a coherent world and combat design that offered way more interesting incentive that shithalla ever could

      Not only is the worst of the bunch, its legitimately the worst AAA game released since FFXV.

      Origins was a nice change of pace, which thankfully ignored a lot of AC shit and made a simple but fun historical Witcher 3 clone.
      Odyssey worked on the same level, also bringing back your own ship and ship combat.

      Valhalla on the other hand, doesn't work as anything. It doesn't work as AC game and doesn't work as shitty Witcher clone either, due to the grating design decisions, and cuts on all ends.
      If you thought Odyssey was bad for dumbing down the upgrade mechanic and merging materials so luxury pelts weren't worth hunting anymore, then oh boy just wait until you play this...

      Literally the worst game I have ever played(since FFXV).

    It could have been amazing, the world is truly impressive yet it's such a chore to play. When it's good and the story is actually moving it's very damn good, but 90% of the game is literally pointless. If it wasn't such a chore to play it could have been a 10/10

            I'm talking about my own experience here fag, Point is this game is too long and combined with the shitty no difficulty combat it ends up being a chore to play.
            The player is literally impossible to kill from the very beginning, but it doesn't have the cool combat animations from the earlier games which carried the combat. Yeah those games were easy too, and only required you to parry to be literally invincible no matter how many enemies were on screen, but the power fantasy from watching the fantastic choreography made it a fun spectacle. In odyssey you're literally just flailing against nothing with no danger whatsoever.

        Because if Skyrim or New Vegas were like Odyssey and Valhalla then every five feet you'd find some sort of bandit camp to fight that has no story or even theme behind it and it only exists for the one chest in the entire camp, animals would attack you every minute you were wandering to keep you "engaged", the areas you visit wouldn't let you talk to NPCs but instead only very specific people, and you'd fight the exact same enemies on repeat with no changes to their movesets or weapons or anything.

        The only equivalent Skyrim has to anything that Odyssey or Valhalla do are the Draugr/Falmer caves and even then they're significantly more varied than the camps in Odyssey because they always have new ways to explore them even if they are linear. Skryim and New Vegas also let you be significantly more creative and in control of what you're doing at any given time and give you far more options with how you want to fight. In Odyssey your options are:
        >Headshot build.
        >Flame melee build.
        >Poison melee build.
        >Assassin build.
        >Hybrid that does terrible damage and may as well not be touched.
        >100% crit build.
        You're also forced into sticking to your builds because you're expected to have one after a certain point.
        In Valhalla your options are
        >Which weapon do I pick because builds aren't a thing?

        Skyrim and New Vegas let you pick whatever you want, fight however you want, build however you want, break the game however you want, and you will always be able to progress and fight stuff without issues. Hell, NV without mods lets you max out basically everything.

    - the horse riding is terrible
    - cardboard ncp

    Maybe i was spoiled by playing rdr2 and cp2077 right before Odyssey and while I agree CP might feel a bit empty at time, and with lot of simple side quests too, I was much more invested in them than in the terrible "go stab the bandits who captured soldiers"

    It's boring. Great setting, really cool world building... The environmental artists are fantastic but, the game is flat out boring.
    The combat is weightless and tiresome. The usual ubisoft collectathon bloat is there of course. The levelling system is unfulfilling, just arbitrary level scaling bullshit. The core systems are fundamentally unengaging which is a big problem when there's so much grind to it. Valhalla was the same shit. Cool game world and setting, cool characters, fucking boring repetitive combat that underpins a massive, grindy slog. If the combat was brutal and visceral and challenging and you actually levelled up in some meaningful way beyond just being able to attack higher level enemies without them having massive hp pools, it might be more tolerable.
    Valhalla was such a waste of a cool setting.

      Did you even play the game? The story starts with your player character being 1 of 2 twins that gets thrown away / sacrificed to the gods. Why would an ancient spartan family ever choose to keep a girl and throw away a healthy son?

      ubisoft released the official stats 1 - 3 months after release on what players picked with who they played. 73% of the players used alexios.
      this made people at ubisoft so butthurt that they released a badly written novel/comic forcing kassandra as the canon choice and having her kill deimos/alexios.
      for valhalla to this day since release they have refused to release any numbers on what players picked (and i bet the vast majority played male eivor)
      with valhalla ubisoft also forced that female eivor is canon because they wanna score sjw points, but are still to cowardly to use the female version for the trailers or merchandise before the game was released.

          IMO AC should never have deviated from being a city game. The series was always about its movement, with the assassinations being an excuse for it even if the stealth was rather rudimentary for most of the series. I know I myself couldn't care about the Crusades but navigating Damascus, Acre and Jerusalem was fun because of the way you could climb about as well as the ambience of hostility they had.
          Open world RPG with short buildings is everything AC shouldn't be

        IMO AC should never have deviated from being a city game. The series was always about its movement, with the assassinations being an excuse for it even if the stealth was rather rudimentary for most of the series. I know I myself couldn't care about the Crusades but navigating Damascus, Acre and Jerusalem was fun because of the way you could climb about as well as the ambience of hostility they had.
        Open world RPG with short buildings is everything AC shouldn't be

    Loved this game back when it first released and still do now and consider it the best in the series. Having a seamless map for once, not top down or isometric view (yes StH did it first, but not without issues), the ability to change your farm music no matter the season, and seeing the seasons change day by day.... and they brought only half these concepts back in a limited capacity for a game or two before never bringing them back again. You were also given complete control over your crops from making hybrids to developing seed that can grow in any weather or soil regardless of quality. It's not without flaws, but most of them got fixed in the girl release and PS2 port, though the latter is bad to play on its original system. Its biggest drawback is that you're forced to play FoMT in order to unlock extra music for your farm.

    I uninstalled this multiple times after trying to enjoy it multiple times. Its just so fucking boring.
    The combat lost all the cool animations in old games outside of hitting the last guy in an encounter and now enemies will just ignore being hit
    You no longer unlock new abilities (ie tools) via actual missions that explain why you have these things; you just put point into tree and suddenly you can do x, a lot of what you can do seems to just be magic no one really questions (the worst being the ability to teleport you get 5 mins in)
    The mercs are boring as fuck hp sponges that aren't even a challenge since the ai is so bad enemeis can lose sight of you a foot away from them if you crouch in a bush and constantly having to deal with them or their sponsor is boring
    Most items are shit but it keeps giving me more
    Sync no longer actually tells you what everything is; rather than syncing showing you all quests in a given area, it just shows you the symbol of all quets and you still have to manually walk there
    The world is boring and everyone just instantly knows you're a merc and gives you jobs on sight and just takes your word on the job being done with no proof
    Its got so much busy work but rarely bothers to tell me why I should care I can grab sailors (who join me 100% of the time no question even though they already have lives and jobs)
    So many of your abilities are gated behind story progression, tedious bullshit or strangely high levels (why level 15 just to be able to conviniently switch to fist to knock people out)
    Combat at its core is a joke and you can effectively stunlock almost every enemy from level 1 by using dual blades and repeatedly doing 2 hits>parry
    Strongest mid-combat move you have for most of the game is an assassin one, the tree about not being in active combat

    This would have been fine if they actually acted like this was the case in-game but they don't. Like, if you pick the guy, then she's with the Spartans. They've had years to recognize she's clearly superhuman. So its somewhat reasonable.
    But when you pick her everyone just treats her like a man on sight in one of the most sexist time periods of the world in sexism land and when doing physical jobs where the sexism actually makes sense. She never shows she's particularly strong to 99.99% of the characters in the game. She just shows up, they instantly trust her, then says she did X, provides no proof and they just accept it.
    The way quests work doesn't even work with the guy who they could reasonably assume to be a merc or solider on sight, nevermind her

    Not saying as if it were a massive accomplishment, but it's by far the best of the Gayla flicks.
    Origins was janky af, sliding and slashing all over the place during combat, stealth "mechanic" was flash game tier, main questline up until meeting Cleopatra is just a fucking chore, also fuck horse archers.
    Odyssey was a massive improvement while basically being nothing more than a watered down Witcher 3 lookalike. Combat was fun, stealth was fun, mercenaries were a great addition, bird buddy was actually worth a damn, also didn't mind the side quests where you just had to jog over to some dude to stab them in the neck and be done in 30 seconds. Ubisoft obviously can't write compelling characters but this time around there were some that were at least memorable. Last but not least Greece was fucking gorgeous.
    Valhalla is just a bloated mess and fuck Ubisoft for pulling a bait and switch with the cool starting zone then shipping you off to Engerlandscire where you get to spend 100+ hours wading through mud, marshes and boring landscapes accompanied by all around dickheads, ungratetul fucks, not-Kassandra and a revolving door of literally whos. Synin is mostly useless, combat is once again shit but at least it can be cheesed with dual spears. Early on zealots are just complete bullshit but then get mostly trivialized with slo mo dodge and missile reversal. Side content and the minigames are definitely fun, but the MQ is just a flat out chore. Who the hell thought that stone age trip to America was a good idea? First Asgard trip burnt me out and dropped it after getting Sigurd back.

        Parrying is just shit in Origins, combat is about waiting for the enemy dude to start swinging, dodge then swing swing swing until he either keels over or steps away and then it's back to square one. Or you get fucked over by the camera angle. Or the archers. Mounted combat is also horrible.
        Odyssey is just more polished and this time around the camera is designed for handling crowds of enemies. More skills, spear abilities/DBZ moves and I liked the greater variety with weapons and engravings. Also it always felt as if Bayek and the enemies were sliding all over the place while swinging the weapons.
        Same goes for stealth imo, greater variety, better skills and I actually could be bothered to map out a fort with Ikaros, take a look and assassinate my way through it, or just cap mercenaries and bounties. Origins NPC AI was bot tier where they just kept randomly walking around then once you get spotted the whole compound is alerted.

      I made the mistake of doing the Ireland DLC a few hours into the main quest. Spent like 2 solid days grinding out that DLC and finishing it which took every last fuck I gave about playing that boring shit... So when I got back to the main quest line and realised I still had like 8 areas to ally with and an absolute fuckton of other grinding shit to do I just uninstalled. It's too much. It's too much when the core game mechanics are mind numbingly boring. More =/= better. They'd do well to streamline a lot of shit, tighten up and improve the combat massively and actually make your actions and upgrades matter instead of just being one big mindless arbitrary grind to finish.
      Oh and last I checked, the big druid boss demigod or whatever is still bugged to fuck so that, unless you follow a very specific cheese method, you cannot fucking kill him to get his spear drop. Brilliant really.

        Yeah that's a pretty good summary.
        I postponed the Druids DLC a bit but then got fed up with Yabbadabbagloucesterscire #123 so hopped over and fuck me, the areas actually had colours. And it had Ciara. But then of course the story and especially the ending fell completely flat.
        After rescuing Sigurd I checked the area/quest list and just nope'd out. No fucking way I'm gonna finish it with still so much crap to do when all the stuff I did was just wholly unrewarding up to that point, including that fat retard sperging out in home base and then everyone making faces after I merked him. And finding out that there was Asgard 2 Jotunheim Boogaloo as well. That segment was prolly one of the most "yeah well, fuck you for buying our game" areas from recent memory.

          If Ubisoft would've put in just 1/10 of the effort they put in justifying black people and Asians joining your group, it would've actually sufficed as viking immersion game.

    I liked Odyssey as well, until it went on for far too long, and I never finished it. But still, it was a nice epoch representation with mechanics and elements catering to that epoch.

    Valhalla on the other hand... I don't even know where to start.

    This is quite frankly the dullest and most artificial game I have ever played. This entire thing feels like its made by an algorithm without any human involvement. Its like a cross-cut of open world games that doesn't even try to be interesting or engaging.

    First of all, the entire game is build around sinking as much time into it as possible without any regards to quality. This entire game is a grind, a chase.
    Everything in this game, from levels, to materials, to skills has to be grinded or chased down. And you do so only to perform basic as fuck, copy pasted actions/quests that any other game offers without the grind/chase.
    >Spend 5 hours climbing mountains and chasing leather and iron so you can kill 10 bandits.
    That the in-game store puts the permanent XP booster as "recommended purchase" tells you everything you need to know.

    Whereas Odyssey had a plethora of different armors to be found, this has only a handful.
    Which means that 99 out of 100 chests you open, contain leather and iron ore. Which also means that players are grinding for Opal, the
    >why don't you just buy it from our store?
    currency to have at least some variety in outfits by getting those who are otherwise sold.

    There's not a single interesting element to this. Combat, village management, story, etc. all the most basic you can imagine. Eivor is the same wisecracker as any other AC protag, and the voice acting is unemotional and quite frankly terrible(but I blame the direction not the voice actors). Even raids are pretty much the exact same NPC battles that the franchise had for some time now, only with a different branding.

      What's left is of course the setting. AC has always been more miss than hit with those as they create worlds which's only goal is to appear proper, disregarding accuracy. Not only is this the same deal, but the butchering of the material is probably the worst ever.

      In fact, the way this game handles Vikings is outright embarassing.
      They cut away all the problematic elements to be left with a rag-tag group of diverse people that welcome anyone, and portray the "good Vikings" amongst the bad ones.
      But of course they had to keep the "badass" aspects like raiding, which creates a monstrosity of nonsense.

      There's a quest where a King shouts from his castle that you raided the farms of his people and burned their villages, that they tried to make peace and pay you off but you didn't care. Everyone on your side has a laugh and you attack. No issue here because you're the "good Vikings" remember? That Eivor literally tells the "bad Vikings" in another quest that they should cease their raiding because after all, they all have to live together with the natives now, doesn't even register to Ubisoft as stupid.
      In fact, they care so little that they give you a quest to stop Vikings from raiding the countryside. Which is literally what you do throughout the game as you pillage and murder you way across England.

      Ubisoft has stopped giving any fucks, outside of checking the most superficial marks.

      This game only aims to please people who are already satisfied by tilting the analog stick forward and looking at the visuals.
      This is the bar it wants to clear. And it only barely does. This doesn't feel like a game, it feels like an activity designed by a corporate entity to fill only one quota, and that's how many hours you can waste spend with this.

        3/3 as I'm done with this shit.

        Also, I wanna talk about Ubisofts misguided attempt at diversity. Because I think their 50/50 approach is actually hurting the representation of women.

        Ubisoft creates a fantasy world in which 50% of all positions are women. No questions asked.

        This is completely ignoring the hardships women in those positions had to go through, which is not a factor in Ubisoft's fantasy world. All those women in the game, would have some stories to tell in how they got to their positions and the difficulties they faced(at the time, women weren't even allowed to hold property and anything they owned automatically belong to their husbands).
        In Ubisoft's world? Crickets. The actual female experience doesn't matter, nor is anything in this game build around it.
        Functionally, women in Assassin's Creed are men, because them being women doesn't factor at all.

        A good example is a questline of a leader who's lost her town by betrayal and now fights to get it back. There's so much they game could say to highlight said struggle and issues here, and highlight her validation as a leader, but the game says nothing. Even the betrayal has nothing to do with her being a women or not being taken seriously, its just a generic betrayal. Ubisoft doesn't care. You can replace her, as almost any female character, with a male NPC and nothing changes.

        The same can be said about diversity to some degree. Most people of different skin colours are just that: different skin colours, effectively acting as white NPCs. Their background or experience (especially at that time in history) matters none. The Chinese storeclerk says she's from China. Good job Ubisoft!

            Thats my point, Valhalla was so terrible I lost all interest even in the historical immersion aspect of the games.
            I'm cured as far as AC goes. No more disappointment for me.

            Valhalla was too much of a fuck-up.
            Even though I gotta admit, sometimes I feel like playing 4 or Odyssey again, just to sail around and fuck around.

            But I'm never ever gonna buy another one again. Even if they did one in the 3 kingdoms period. Fuck, I dont even wanna know how much they 'd fuck that one up... Especially with their shit of putting some guys arbitrarily on the bad/templar side.

    Or and Od had at least direction and serve as fun immersion content.

    >fuck you, I liked it,
    So did I, but this doesn't make the game good at all. It was bad.
    People should fucking learn differentiating the subjective parts and the objective parts of their criticism.

      yeah well he didn't say the game was "objectively" good, he just stated a "subjective" opinion that he liked it and anyone else who disagrees can go fuck themselves, including you ya pseudo-intellectual schizo fuck. please commit sudoku so nobody ever has to read the dumb shit you type, thanks

    Why don't you use a shield as a Spartan warrior anyway? Did they give a reason?

    I actually liked it too, pirated it when it came out did like 60% of the game and then dropped it to wait out until the final patch but never came back to it.

    My save is probably lost... So i'll never play it again.
