Viking: Battle for Asgard (PlayStation 3)

 

Learning about the adventures and deeds of Vikings, such as Erik the Red or Leif Eriksson, was always the highlight of any world history class in school. After all, these were true stories about men who explored the unknown, conquered new lands, and...

Viking: Battle for Asgard

 

Lost in the well documented blood feud between ninjas and pirates, the fearsome Vikings rarely get the face time they deserve. Refusing to sell out by dressing up in designer black pajamas or shamelessly yelling their catch phrase everywhere they go...

For a game that promised so much, Viking really doesn't do much in the way of delivering. Being that it's really just combat, combat, combat, it doesn't do nearly enough to make all that fighting interesting. Enemies are adequate, as is your array of...

Viking: Battle For Asgard Game Review–Kratos Goes To Norway

 

Vikings make great characters for video games.  Their history is one of huge quantities of fighting and destruction, and I say this being of Danish descent myself.  Okay, sure, the Danes didn't have quite the fighting past of, say, the Norwegians or...

Viking: Battle for Asgard

 

Overall, Viking: Battle for Asgard is a very good free-roam hack-n-slash title. Its gameplay is addictive and easy to play. Basic controls, very good combinations of attacks and dragons make Viking: Battle for Asgard worth a rent. Although I didn't go...

Fast and fun gameplay; Very nice scenery; Dragons

The audio could've been better; A few slowdown problems in big battles; Beating the bosses is too basic

Audio wise, Viking is nothing to shout about. It gets the job done but there’s nothing really there to make it stand out. The slicing and dicing of enemies is very well executed (get it?), but there’s no real sound to the game when travelling from one...

Viking: Battle for Asgard Review

 

Ever since the release of Sony's God of War, many titles have tried to emulate its success with gory decapitations, action-time button sequences, over the top violence, and of course, a likeable hero. While a few have tried, such as 2008's Conan, none...

While the A and X button are used more often than not, if players are able to stun the enemy, an X icon will appear above the enemy to have Skarin perform a lethal finishing move that comes in the form of at least 10 different finishers. From chopping...

Viking: Battle for Asgard

 

If Viking: Battle for Asgard is to be believed, Viking must have had very boring lives. Viking is a practice in patience. Flawed as it may be, there is still a great deal of fun to be had if you can stick it through to the end, though many may not.

Viking is a great game, with some great promise, but this feels like a trial run. Hopefully it will sell enough to garner a sequel, one I would be very anxious to pick up on day one. If you are a fan of 300 or Lord of the Rings this is a must buy....

"the game feels more like an amalgamation of different gaming experiences, compiled into one repetitively-mediocre, Scandinavian bag"

Viking: Battle for Asgard Review for the PS3

 

Beer and skittles.

Open-world strategy; Upgrades and new moves; Pretty, dynamic visuals

Short, so very short; Erratic learning curve; Missing sounds and other bugs
