Critic Reviews for Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Wrath of the Druids
Wrath of the Druids has a lot of the same shortcomings as the main game. The story is too concerned with political intrigue that isn’t that intriguing, the landscape is mostly barren greenery that’s unexciting to traverse, and the overall game hardly hovers above the average baseline it rests upon, just to name a few of the overlapping problems. But Wrath of the Druids does leapfrog the base experience because of its relative focus that organically slices off the astounding amount of bloat inherent to a game that large. It doesn’t magically make Assassin’s Creed Valhalla a better game, but it does show that sometimes, a smaller serving can make a huge difference.
Wrath of the Druids is simply more Assassin's Creed Valhalla, with a few added twists and some of the same baggage. The benefit of not swinging for the fences is that you're getting more AC comfort food, even if it falls far short of a home run. For 25 bucks, you might need something a little more than that.
Wrath of the Druids is a solid expansion for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, surprisingly huge and well structured, but at the time quite self indulgent in terms of storytelling and a little bit unpolished. It brings an interesting variant gameplay loop and offers 15 hours of contents, so it's perfect for die hard fans of the main campaign.
