Don’t know this one is as polished as the Egypt one (Origins?) but I enjoy the Viking setting more. Think I’m about 40 hours in from memory. Will probably finish it but I’ll only play it every so often from now I think.

The latest update allows you to change the look of you gear but their is a catch it costs 50 silver to change each piece at the blacksmith fans are complaining all over social media hopefully Ubi listen and change it.

That's friggin dumb charging silver to change the look of items you didn't had to pay in AC Oddyseey

This game is value for money. I'm not side questing, but I'm definitely not rushing and I'm about 50 hours playtime.
Judging by my place in the game, I estimate I might have 10-15 hours left of the campaign. Not something I expected, I'd argue it's maybe a touch longer than I'd like, probably 40 hours ish would have been enough.

Yeah, it's actually too long for mine. I've was doing a fair bit of side quest and collectable stuff but, at 80 odd hours in and no end in sight, have decided to drop it and just focus on the main story. Just want to finish the thing and move on to another game at this point.

The gameplay loop isn't varied enough to warrant the play time - just rock up to a new territory, help this dude become ealdorman, find a few ingots/armours, rinse and repeat. Likewise the story and writing isn't strong enough to keep you engaged merely for that, Witcher it ain't lol.

100% agree.
I'm all for epic hours if the story and characters are strong but there is literally not one character the game writes to make you give a fu** about.
Even your main character is bland as hell with no story arc so far besides running around and getting told what to do.

Finished all the story content a couple of days ago. 65 hours all up, which is comparable to other recent titles.

I mainly focused on the story with some light exploration if I ran into other content I found interesting.

I enjoyed the game but felt it was the weakest of the three recent games. It felt so far removed from an Assassin's Creed game, with minimal stealth. It really was a viking games with some traditionally systems forced into it. Hunting the Order and dealing with the Zealots was a lot less interesting than in Odyssey.

I liked the way each area was a self contained story but felt there were too many of them. The structure also meant that if you did come across a memorable character they'd then disappear as soon as you moved on with the story.
