Assassins Creed: Valhalla (2021) Review

°Assassins Creed: Valhalla
°Ubisoft
°Open World

There is no denying the Assassins Creed franchise is nothing short of breathtaking and every entry just gets better, whether it be additional content, bigger maps, more combat movements/ weapons or adding new elements such as hunting. These games never tire of pleasing an audience.

Valhalla is no different, set in the age of Vikings, the player takes control of Eivor, which you can decide the gender of before pillaging.
The element of stealth makes a comeback which some previous entries had got rid of, it makes a welcome return to say the least.

The landscapes are a thing of beauty and Valhalla really does go the whole nine yards in terms of detail, you will often find yourself emersed in the scenery, before realising you are about to go into a battle. There was a few times I found myself just going far and wide to look at the scenery and explore, anything mission related wasn’t a priority, it’s fair to say, I put myself a few hours behind, it was all worth it. Not an hour is wasted when playing a game of this calibre.

Building up your community and relations is a vital part of Valhalla, as maintaining good relationships does pay off in the long run.

The fighting system, as ever, is fun and it’s always a blast to take on multiple opponents, especially when wielding two weapons, you really get a good Game Of Thrones, battle vibe.

Valhalla features a campaign that will keep you hooked and enough side missions to keep you drifting from said campaign, which leads to hours of gameplay. Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla is full of beautiful scenery, brutal battles and missions that will keep you glued to the screen for hours, Ubisoft has outdone themselves completely. Assassin’s Creed, yet again proves to be a heavyweight champion within the gaming world.
