At first, i thought this game was amazing. You got to run around rescuing troops for your army, and the fatalities that you could perform were great. I just ran around killing people and trying to get everything i needed for the big battle for like 6 hours straight. The first battle was awesome. You had about 500 troops and got to use your dragon. The problem was it took like 20 minutes and all you did was kill the champions so that you could get the stones you needed for the dragons to attack the shamans. There were 2 parts that were exactly the same, and then you fought this huge champion dude, and it wasn't even that hard(and i was playing on hard...) After that i thought that the game deserved another island WHERE YOU DID EXACTLY THE SAME THING. They didn't even change the names of the locations where the troops that you had to free were located. The battle was exactly the same again, only bigger. Then you moved on the the third and final island WHERE EVERYTHING WAS THE SAME, only bigger. It took forever to reach a terrible ending, and you had to put u with an extremely repetitive game to get there. The only reason i don't give this game a 1 is because the first level was so much fun
I recommend renting the game, and not moving on the the second island.
I think this is was very good. It had all the makings as gears of war. if you like body parts flying and blood. this game is for you. The graphics is excellent. The only draw back is the game keeps repeating itself with all the missions in the game. wish you could play as the horde as well. Wish there was online game content for an extended version DLC pack.
Viking, only doesnt recieve a ten because it has no replay value. No online multiplayer and the tedious missions make it so this game is a blast the first time through but will never be touched again. Even though the game has no replay value it is still a must for a rental. Easy to learn gameplay, short story line, and story based achievements make this game worth the six or seven hours you will put into it. As a rental Viking would get a ten, but in the overall scheme of things, Viking gets an 8.
