Product Description

Platform: PlayStation 3

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...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great now that the price has dropped! June 10, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I held off on getting this game because I saw all of the reviews that suggested this was a very middle of the road game. And for sixty bucks, it is very middle of the road, maybe even terrible.

But for THIRTY bucks now....

Storyline - fair to slightly above average. You go through different islands and clear different areas based on what you learn along the way. You collect gold to get upgrades on everything from maps to weapons. I'm a fan of the viking period in history, so I found myself more interested in the story than I probably should have been. It does get rather repetitive. It does get rather repetitive.

Difficulty - game is easy to learn and to play. Maybe too easy. You run around and use combo's to slay enemies. And I do mean slay them.

Graphics - not too bad. Kills are VERY gory. Probably the only reason for the "M" rating is the quantity of blood and limbs that are thrown around with finishing moves. The AI is not very good, if you run out of eyesight of enemies, they forget you exist most of the time. I didn't care very much for the cutscenes between major battles.

Overall - I'm glad I bought and played it. I'm probably not going to finish the game, and I've put about 12 to 15 hours into it, but am very rapidly losing interest. At thirty bucks I feel like I got my money's worth.

Hope you found my review helpful!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game, great price May 28, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As I understand it, Viking: Battle for Asgard was something of a dud when it was first released. I first picked up a used copy at Gamestop for 15 bucks... and proceeded to play it so many times that it developed stress fractures around the center of the disc from me taking it in and out of the case so many times.

I picked up a second copy for $9. I can't say how many times I've played it, but it has become just about my favorite out of all the games I have ever played. I understand it is not for everyone, as one reviewer said there is a lot of just running around, but for me it is ideal, because it captures exactly what I want in a video game experience.

Unlike say, The Force Unleashed, this game is not a nonstop barrage of mindless action. If you want action, you can always venture out and chop some Legion to pieces. But if you want to search for treasure to upgrade your weapons, or set free some Viking prisoners, or just explore a beautifully realized world, you can do that too. Although the graphics look primitive now, (i.e. the characters' lips don't move when they talk) the landscapes and views still hold up well.

If I get off of a stressful day at work, I can turn on my PS3 and escape in the Viking world. If I want to smash some heads and work out my frustration, I can seek out some Legion and chop them to pieces. If I want to relax and explore a beautiful landscape, I can do that too. The story is engaging, and has some amazing, epic battles involving armies of thousands, and you are right there fighting in the middle of it. I didn't find the battles too difficult. To me they were challenging, but not impossible.

Since it wasn't a fantastic success, I guess there will never be a sequel, which is a shame to me. I would love to see the game taken to a new level.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice RPG game with action... August 10, 2009

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I don't like most RPG, but this one is very good.

PROS:
1. Good medieval graphics
2. Many strategic solutions
3. Good learning system.
4. Incredible graphics with armies.

CONS:
5. Too slow in running.

Good game if you like the ones with blades, axes, shields, mistery and medieval magic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo Sega!! September 17, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What a great game! I have not had this much fun with a game in a while! I usually don't play games from franchises that I'm not already familiar with, but I really took an interest in this game. I've put many hours into it, and I can say that I'm fully satisfied!

Beautiful, lush, and lively environments, filled with tons of warriors, are at the forefront of this games attractions. The ocean is the coolest I've EVER seen in a video game! The graphics really are amazing, as well as the character interaction, quest advancement, and game depth.

I highly recommend Sega's new masterpiece, Viking!!!

5 stars, thumbs up!!

1.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment March 27, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Wow! I really thought this game would have been a lot more fun. I couldn't wait to get down to some serious hack-n-slash action. I didn't know my character was going to have to run a marathon to do it though. Seriously...running all over that map is very boring. I know they have their goofy leystones, but you still end up jogging all over the joint. Plus...when you do get somewhere close to some action, it's either pointlessly boring or impossibly difficult.

GOOD: The gore factor is turned up to ten on this one. LOVE the finishing sequences! The game is sufficiently brutal...loved repeatedly stabbing that Legion Champion in the face over and over.

BAD: Unfortunately, the brutality of some of the sequences doesn't make up for all of the boring in-between stuff. The ending of the fight with the Legion Champion was probably so gratifying because it was so frustratingly boring getting to that point. Fighting on inclines or declines is ridiculous. You end up missing your enemy half of the time. The multiple enemy combat is pointlesss. Get surrounded by 5 enemies...you die almost all of the time. I thought this guy was supposed to be the Ultimate Viking Warrior!!!

In the end...I was expecting a Viking version of God of War...instead, I got a slow, boring version of Dynasty Warriors without the ability to actually lay waste to multiple foes during a battle. The developers don't seem to know if they wanted to make this game tactical or arcade style. They got themselves stuck in between with some end product that just isn't fun at all. I could go on and on about how many of this games interactive aspects are so unbelievably flawed...but I really don't feel like wasting any more of my time on this one.
