Like most Ubisoft games, it has been criticized for its lack of polish and structure and the fact that the plot feels severely limited in most cases. The game has been extended to play if possible, however most critics agree that it would have felt much better if the game was much shorter as long periods of inactivity and side quests make the game feel clunky and redundant in most times.
The side missions of the game are extremely fun however, they are few and far between more repetitive side quests that plague most of the game. The main storyline is quite endearing and is historically accurate to some extent with mythological beings added into the mix to give it a more of a fantastical feel.
The game has epic naval combat which you should get used to as soon as you boot the game up for the first time as there is going to be a lot of it in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The naval combat seems fun at first but quickly gets boring as there is no customizability found within the game.
The game has no multiplayer element but has quite a fun progression system that makes sure players are able to feel a sense of belonging to the game’s world as they gain access to new perks and better character skins and skills as they level up throughout their journey. The game can easily offer upwards of 300 hours of play time.
