Graphics looked spruced up and not particularly dated, hm. However, this trailer looked lackluster throughout.

This is basically Viking: Total War, 'cept that wouldn't fit a fantasy setting as well. I'd get this if I didn't have much else to play. I love story telling, so this one isn't a priority.

I purchased this game for xbox 360 on release and I absolutely loved it. This game is hugely underrated. An under the radar gem. It's an open world game, sort of. The game world is composed of 3 huge maps. You complete one map and then go to the next and cannot go backwards. However the game still feels very big and very open. In my opinion it has actually aged very well. I felt it was a beautiful game back when it first came out and as I still go back to play it I find myself still impressed with the awesome world.

 

The story itself is not amazing, but it's also no terrible. The best aspects of the game are the combat and the huge maps to explore. The combat is somewhat simple, but a lot of fun and as the game goes on you get more and more attacks thus the combat becomes more complicated. There is also a stealth aspects as you can sneak up on enemies and assassinate them. You can also choose to enter enemy forts with stealth or swords a swinging. 

 

At the end of each map you have to storm your enemies fort with your men. Before that you will be gathering men and resources to make this attack easier. There are side missions and collectibles. There is strategy involved especially if you play at the higher difficultly level, which does make the game much more fun.

 

Open world games are my favorite and I love Viking. It's a game I am very glad to have in my collection. In my personal opinion I just can't see playing the game with mouse and keyboard being much fun, so you might want to plug in a 360 controller, but maybe I am wrong.

The combat doesn't look all that good to me. Í was expecting some gems to burst out any minute, Mario style... maybe I'm wrong -anyone know where I can get a demo?

So...not a multiplayer game?

 @jhonel83 I don't know about a demo but in my opinion the combat is smooth, bloody, and a lot of fun. However I have only played the 360 version if that makes any difference at all.

 (I recently bought this game, and plan to start it today, I will correct this information if it's incorrect, since sometimes games will have more modes than store pages say, but what all I've heard, not a peep on mp- which is fine by me).

 @CastorT No it must not. Don't get me wrong. But it would be nice if the game sites would be straight forward with that kind of information...Not that single-player a "flaw" but game sites will never tell you straight forward about what certain games do not have. I've searched on google for instance, through quite a few pages, and none of them would tell me straight away "single player only". Therefore my question.

Go learn some proper English before you "try" to side up with someone and start making faulty assumptions.

 @bastich I see, apologies.

 

But then again your question should be; So is it a singleplayer game?

Or something...
