Fun Arena Type GameQwertyfour | Oct. 4, 2013 | See all Qwertyfour's reviews »
War of the Vikings is very fun, and tries to compete with chivalry, but it does not feel polished too well, but fun nonetheless. In this game, you have 3 classes which are supposed to counter each other. One is a bowman, wielding a bow, another is an axeman who has a humongous axe, and the third is a guy with a shield and sword. The bowman takes out the axe man, the axe man demolishes the shield man and the shield man will block the arrows of the bowman to destroy him. It's essentially a rock papers scissors shoe type class balance with perks you progress. When attacking with weapons, you can attack to the left, right, and down and you have a stronger stamina based attack. The bow man has a spinning sword slash with his secondary weapon, the swordsman has a stab attack, and the axe man has a quick attacking downward slash of his axe which will kill anything unshielded. The game is pretty fun, but it's not very polished in some respects but hopefully that will be fixed. You should buy this game if you enjoyed Chivalry but want something different
