Assassin's Creed Valhalla: The Siege of Paris Reviews
Assassin's Creed Valhalla's Siege of Paris DLC is the same game, different setting -- nothing new to see here.
Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla Siege of Paris is a welcome addition to the main campaign. However, if you already didn’t like the main game, then this DLC might not be for you. But if you’re enticed with exploring a new land, story, and the return of Black Box assassination missions then Siege of Paris just may very well be worth your time.
If you're a fan of the era or just want more content, you should totally check out Assassin's Creed Valhalla The Siege Of Paris. However, other than the Black Box infiltration missions and some new weapons/gear, there's really not much else on offer in this latest DLC from Ubisoft.
Overall, The Siege of Paris is a bit of a missed opportunity. It's still an awful lot of fun for those who enjoyed the base game, and the assassinations may be simple but do add a bit of a variety to the experience. However, there's little that's truly refreshing, and is not a must-have for those who own Assassin's Creed Valhalla.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla: The Siege of Paris lets you meet a robust cast of historical characters. Unfortunately, many of its features and mechanics feel severely lacking. The concepts that it tries to introduce are either poorly implemented or limited in comparison to other games.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla: The Siege of Paris provides more familiar gameplay, but doesn't add much to the well-worn series formula.
Despite its satisfyingly open Infiltrations and the brisk bite of its scythes, The Siege of Paris doesn't feel like an essential addition when Valhalla already has Mjolonir's weight in nearly identical content.
With a story that fails to go beyond serviceable and some not particularly inspired characters, Assassin's Creed Valhalla: The Siege of Paris fails to reach the heights of the Wrath of the Druid expansion, basically offering more of the same in a somewhat uninteresting setting. The Infiltration Missions, a nice callback to earlier entries in the series, are not enough to salvage an experience that only the most die-hard Assassin's Creed Valhalla fans will thoroughly enjoy.
Despite promising additions of Black Box assassinations and the scythe, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: The Siege of Paris fails to live up to the heights of prior additions to Eivor’s adventures.
There was a lot of potential to make The Siege of Paris the most epic chapter in Eivor’s journey but sadly there isn’t enough meat here to chew on and the whole adventure ends on a kind of an unsatisfying climax.

Not many novelty in this expansion, but the choices and RPG elements steer Assassin's Creed from its pure action roots.

If you’re a fan of the base game, then Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Siege of Paris is more of what you’re already excited about. But it’s a weaker DLC than “Wrath of the Druids,” to be sure, despite higher levels of marketing hype.
Siege of Paris is an expansion pack that adds much more content to the base game. In fact, it provides something that we all missed. The assassination missions. With Siege of Paris, the assassination missions finally come back.

The greatest issue of The Siege of Paris is that it shows several things, but it does not try something drastically new.

The Siege of Paris' Infiltration Missions will surely appeal to fans of classic Assassin's Creed games, but by and large, Valhalla's second DLC feels like more of the same. It's a solid expansion, but far from essential.
With The Siege of Paris, Assassin's Creed Valhalla goes back to the serie's roots by allowing players to find the best way to get rid of their victims. With a very french intrigue and setting, this episode offers a pretty good reason to launch the game once again, sacrebleu !

The Siege of Paris is a step down from the first DLC, offering only half the content.
The Siege of Paris takes us to a brand-new location and brings back the wonderful black box assassination missions from Unity, but mostly fails to provide a compelling narrative to back that up. Like Wrath of the Druids before it, a few new gameplay mechanics don't prevent The Siege of Paris from being more of the same.
It lacks relevant new features in the gameplay department, but the story and the new characters are engaging.
