Product Overview

A fierce struggle is taking place within the realm of the Norse Gods, as the goddess Hel has been banished for defying Odin, Lord of Asgard. Angry at her fate, Hel has raised an army of resurrected Viking warriors to wipe out all of humanity in the mortal realm of Midgard, as she seeks to bring about Ragnarok - the apocalyptic battle that that will destroy Asgard and the Gods themselves. The task of stopping Hel and defending the future of mankind falls to Skarin, a promising but deeply flawed young warrior, ignorant of the true reason for his favor with the Gods.

ReviewSource AtomicGamer
Review There are entirely too few viking-based action games out there. The last good one I remember was Rune from Human Head Software (eventual developers of Prey); released almost a decade ago, the third-person melee action was a real breath of fresh air for PC gamers. Since then we've seen dozens, if not hundreds, of titles with third-person characters hacking away at each other, and the latest of these is Viking: Battle for Asgard from Sega and Medieval: Total War developers Creative Assembly. While Viking isn't going to win any major awards, it does supply some hot Norse action with plenty of gore and a unique twist...One of the big pluses for many gamers will be the gore in Viking...The ending to Viking is a pretty big disappointment, but at least the game is a ton of fun on the way there. The large fights you participate in are a fresh change from most action games, and while Viking might have benefited from more RPG elements along with the game's impressive action, I can't complain too much...Viking is a solid action game with a couple of impressive twists, and while it could have been a lot better if the developers were more ambitious, this one is still a winner.
