Good news is if you've made any progress on the PS4 version, it carries over to PS5. Even the trophies appeared whilst I was playing 👍

Was coming to ask you 😂

Will probably pick this up in the next couple of days and start it

Just make sure if you buy the physical version on ps4 you get a ps5 with a drive.   I've seen quite a few people asking how you upgrade from if you don't have a disc drive and been shocked by the answer - you can't 🤣

Asked for it for my birthday which means I can't play now and it's going to clash with Cyberpunk's new release date.

I really want to play it now my friends have told me how much Tamworth features in it.

Great game and Tamworth features heavily in the first story arc!

Finished AC Valhalla tonight, 104 hours game time. No spoilers, but after about 40 hours I was ready to call it quits but I had to see it through! Just so repetitive, and the game feels unduly long. Aligning with each region used exactly the same structure and mechanics. Compared to Origins and Odyssey, this is dire.

Combat is woeful, I found the controls clunky or unresponsive, and it's still so buggy, even a month after release. England felt too big as well, too much open space that you have to trek through just to get another quest that was incredibly similar to one you recently completed. I didn't mind this so much in the other two games as there was so much more mythology interspersed within the quests, and they are two of the richest histories of any culture.

Only thing I really liked was Excalibur, super weapon in this game.

Sunk a fair bit of time into this. It's....okay. I believe the saying is wide as an ocean, deep as a puddle.

Don't get me wrong, it looks great in general and it can be fun to just explore the world as I think they've done a good job in capturing the aesthetics and feel of the period. It just feels so padded out. I think it'd be better if the map was smaller. Also, some of the NPCs just look terrible. 

It's still worth playing though, I think. I'll keep going to finish the story but I can't see me doing much more than that.

Couple of hours in

Feels like a 1 step forward 1 step back, I loved odyssey but it had a lot of faults, they've got rif of striking someone 14 times to kill them but it's ended up a bit clunky and slower which is taking some getting used to, they've got rid of some of the features like the nemesis or whatever it was called and the battles which didn't work so I like that, I don't think the story instantly grabbed me, its not overly interesting so far

The biggest problem it has is ghosts of tsushima is a better game 

Edit - the voice acting doesn't help, its garbage, some of the worst I've heard in a big game

Have always been a fan of AC. Well aside from Black Sails which was just way too boring for me at least.  Have played this for a few hours now and it is ok so far, but just is not really gripping me as I thought it would.  My favorite Ubisoft series overall though would have to be the Far Cry ones.

I'm 20 hours in, I'm in to it but it's a proper mixed bag, I've acclimatised to the combat and don't really have that much trouble with it any more apart from the abilities aren't as good / useful as odyssey 

The story is weak as ****! It's a bit boring with terrible voice acting and wonky accents 

It looks great but has performance issues, there's a ton of detail on the grass but that comes with pop up

The more I've played the more apparent it is that it's still a scattergun of ideas approach, raids and the invasion set pieces are better than the battles of odyssey and don't feel pointless like they did, and the knights whatever they're called are better than the nemesis system too but the mysteries and side quest stuff are wet and pointless, it's shoe horned in filler to make the game feel bigger, chasing paper in the wind to get new tattoo designs and stuff like that doesn't need to be there, same with wet henge and that kind of thing, placing rocks on top of each other, the game doesn't need it

There's a decent game in there for sure but they've spoiled it with too much again rather than making a really tight good main game
