Sorry you've had a bad time with it.

Its been the opposite for me. Luckily I haven't encountered any bugs and I'm on 85% completion. The world, characters and general gameplay have made this one of the best AC games for me.

Also I love the world events. So much better than long pointless side quests. This was such a good decision to change that from Odyssey.

Yeah, pretty much no bugs for me either.  I've had a few crashes (I'd say 3 or 4 in 60 hours of gameplay, all shortly after launching the game) and twice had a situation where quests won't trigger, with the npc just standing there. In those instances a quick save and load fixed the issue. And that's about it.  That said, I don't touch Ubisoft games until months after release as the lazy bastards don't beta test their games properly (if at all) and more often than not they're a mess for some time after launch, at least on PC. 

 I'm pretty sure that the Ostara Festival bugs have been patched out now.

Ostara Festival is done I think, so the bugs will probably reappear if they ever introduce that again  ;D

Only minor issues for me. Sometimes the battle music would continue after I was done with the battle and sometimes it would freeze and cash completely. I've found that if I close the game completely before starting up again, the issues are less likely to appear. Maybe due to some caching or something.
I have no idea what Iím taking about

Yep same for me, barely experienced any bugs with this one. And I agree, defo my favourite in the series I've really enjoyed it. Saying that not picked it up on a while, but I'm waiting for the first batch of DLC to arrive.

Didnít have any bugs. I think on the whole I preferred Odyssey but itís very, very close.

And I did love Unity though Iím apparently in the minority there ;D

Actually yeah, I had the battle music too that continued afterwards. Though it only happened 3 times and a reload fixed it.

Its a beautiful looking game and though Oddysey had the variety between landscapes.. The snow in Jorvik and the surrounding areas is beautiful.

 I also think that Unity was a good game. I think that it got a bad rap largely due to the mess it was in at launch (a lesson Ubisoft haven't learned from unfortunately). I didn't play it for some time after for the reasons I've mentioned above, so my view wasn't affected by that. What can't be argued is that Paris was absolutely stunning for the time and still holds up today. The fact that you could go into the vast majority of buildings in such an open world environment was also pretty groundbreaking for the time.

Odyssey I found disappointing on a number of levels and think Valhalla is far better, but that's just my personal opinion.

Completed it last night.

Does anyone else not enjoy the modern day aspects of these games?  I mean I know they need to be there but it's always such a chore. I think they should use cut scenes for that.

Yeah I can't stand them so slow paced and I personally don't care about the modern side of the story.

They should have binned that part off a long long time ago. I have played a lot of the AC games and I still don't have a clue what's going on in the modern part of the game. I don't even have a clue who all those people are...

Yeah, I'm with you lads. Never liked the modern stuff and don't know of anyone who does amongst my mates either. I hated the (intentionally) glitchy bits of the landscape too in Valhalla where you had to do the puzzles to get rid of it. Totally ruins the immersion and isn't fun either. Just a chore to get done in order to get rid of it and have things looking normal. As much as I loved Black Flag, that was one of the worst AC titles for the modern day shite. Having to tool around the Abstergo offices when I just wanted to get back to Edward's story did my head in

Absolutely understand why the modern day stuff is there, but as others have said it is defo a chore to play through those bits. They should absolutely be a cut scene imo.

Imagine watching a film set in the middle ages and suddenly there's a scene where the knights dissolve into office workers talking about writing a script for a medieval film. And it continues on like this for five minutes, then flashes back to the middle ages, having it all been explained it's not quite "real"

That's Assassin's Creed's modern day sequences

This is the first AC game Iíve played and I totally agree on the modern day stuff, itís fucking annoying.

Itís good to have it explained but a couple of cut scenes would have been sufficient as others have said.

I've seen a medieval-themed film with fantasy elements where the heroes were chased by a monster with no escape, until the animator died of a sudden heart attack.

Anyone else found the Keith Flint mission yet?

Just came across this mission.  Smack my Bish-op.   :lmao Top.   Funny how things have turned out in that I was utterly hyped for Cyberpunk and was totally nonplussed about 'yet another Assassin's Creed game'.  Haven't touched Cyberpunk and am loving this to bits.  Opinions and all that, but for me this is the best game in the series by a mile.
