Assassin’s Creed Valhalla review: A hearty, bawdy Viking feast of a game

Ubisoft’s epic is a little messy, but knows how to have a good time

Game director

Key Credits
Julien Laferrière (Producer), Darby McDevitt (Narrative designer)

Valhalla’s sober detailed research is undermined a little by some slightly tipsy execution. But this is a hearty, bawdy Viking feast of a game which spins a fine tale and offers plenty to get your teeth into.

  • Great characters and story
  • A world full of interesting things to find
  • Enjoyably silly side content
  • Underwhelming battles
  • Glitches and poor performance
4 / 5
Version tested
PlayStation 4
