    While lacking a bit of polish, and lacking in the animation department, a suprisingly fun game. But a bit too repetitive

    Boy, is this ever the game for you, if you dig "olde" school, brutal hack n' slash games, with a smattering of stealth and strategy that also let's you complete the game at your own pace due to having...

    Definately worth a hack (n slash), though it could have been better. It could have been multiplayer!

    It lacks a decent storyline and has lots repeated sequences, but the brutality and dynamics make it an alright game.

    Better game than critics make it out to be.

    Rated on April 02, 2008 by einstruzende

    "Viking" is "Assassin's Creed" lite. 1. Big worlds you can explore, but with no real interaction? Check. 2. Combat that revolves around you getting surrounded by enemies? Check. 3. Howeve...
