Despite this games lack of originality, it is still quite fun to play.

I was led to believe by the box that it was an open world game, which is true technically, but the player cannot visit previous areas once beaten. To be fair, I think that a true open world setting wouldn't do much for this game unless much more work was put into it.
There are basically two areas of aspects to this games game play. The first is that of running around, killing bad guys, and building up your army of vikings to fight Legion, a horde of undead vikings. The second is the battle between your vikings and Legion, which is roughly the same as adventuring with a few differences. Mainly running around in large groups of allies, killing large groups of enemies, while destroying objectives.
I can't say much for the story, but I didn't really expect much going in.
Basically, Viking is a fun Hack and Slash without a lot of depth, but plenty of gore.
If you are torn on paying full price it is definitely worth waiting a little while to go down in value.
