    A decent game, but not great

    I would characterize this as your standard movie based game. In my experience games based on movies never really make it to the level of quality we see from other top ranking games. It seems like movie games tend to ge... Read Full Review

    Another horrible movie ripoff

    Beowulf is yet another game rushed for marketing purposes. The developers tried to ripoff ideas from God of War, but failed miserably. Words cannot explain my frustration with this game. But i feel like I must write this... Read Full Review

    BAD...

    Beowulf is a linear hack'n'slash game that does nothing innovative and fails to entertain because of some disappointing game play mechanics. The first game-breaking mechanic is the combat. You will use two bottoms to att... Read Full Review

    Come on, since when were movie- based games good? Stop making em'!

    Ok, let's make this clear. Most movie based games have the same headline: "disastrous" Unfortunately, Beowulf fits this description, one of so many other movie-based videogames. Beowulf is an action - based game, and i... Read Full Review

    Despite a retarded saving system, this game is a gem.

    After seeing so many bad reviews on this game, i decided to give it the creds i think it deserves. Setting: You play as a norse warrior that hungers for fame, honor, gold and women. Beowulf is a man with the strength... Read Full Review

    Great violently gory game!

    I was skeptical when I got this game but it was surprisingly entertaining to me. The presentation is very nice and the graphics are really good, with good voice acting and fun gameplay. There are some button sequence por... Read Full Review

    Beowulf was a bland and somewhat forgettable beat'em up.

    As I will mention many times in this review, I haven't seen the Beowulf movie and I have no interest in seeing it. I know a little bit about the Beowulf history but that's about it. With that said, the storyline still ... Read Full Review
