Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has been unfortunately named the weakest of the RPG trilogy, and I can’t say I disagree.
Ubisoft’s flagship franchise, Assassin’s Creed, is back in a big way thanks to its latest release, Assassin’s Creed Mirage. The newest game brings the series back to its roots of stealth and espionage, whilst perfectly condensing the map size and shifting the focus back onto the Order of Assassins.
Fans went through dark times with recent releases, most notably the RPG trilogy, which consisted of Assassin’s Creed Origins, the best of the three, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, a phenomenal RPG but a bad AC game, and finally, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which some fans feel is treated too harshly.
The main problem with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is it’s just too damn big, with a map that looks amazing but is a pain to traverse, and its story failed to impress as well.
Looking back on all three RPG Assassin’s Creed games, many fans are arguing Valhalla is unfortunately the weakest of them all. They confirmed as much in a Reddit post by Buurto, arguing Origins and Odyssey had the greater appeal.
Many agreed, saying they’re always reluctant to replay Valhalla, or even finish it, as the world, story, and characters just don’t have the same pull to them as the games that came before it.
“Agreed, Origins is the best of the 3 for me. Valhalla was horrible to finish, I tried to replay it recently and uninstalled again after 5 minutes.”
“I can agree with you. I loved Assassin's Creed: Origins so much, liked Assassin's Creed: Odyssey a little (I said ‘a little’ because it was unnecessarily long), and I hated Assassin's Creed: Vallhala (for being too long for no reason)!”
“Completely agree. I’ve re-installed Valhalla three times and honestly can’t get into it. Mirage was tough to get excited about because I really enjoyed Odyssey and Origins, but I like Mirage so far.”
Future Assassin’s Creed games will reportedly vary between smaller, more focused titles like Mirage, to broader, open-world adventures, like the upcoming Assassin’s Creed: Red.
