"While Expeditions: Viking won't be winning any awards for ground-breaking storytelling or innovative gameplay, it's compelling in just the right way that keeps commanding attention throughout. I found it to be a lot of fun, if a little unpolished in places."

Get ready for an adventure in history! Logic Artists, the makers of Expeditions: Conquistador, are pleased to bring you Expeditions: Viking.
Prepare for a grand adventure
As the newly appointed chieftain of a modest Viking clan, you’ll have a village of your very own. But to carve your name into the runestones of history you’ll need great strength, and great wealth to grow your village’s prosperity and renown. There is little left to be gained from the Norse lands and so you must set your sights on the the seas to the West, where tales speak of a great island filled with treasure ready for the taking.
Seek your fortune
Your trusted huscarls will follow you to Valhalla if that be the order of the day, but you’ll need more than loyalty to leave a legacy that will be remembered for a thousand years. Now assemble a worthy band of warriors, build a ship, and seek your wealth and glory across the sea. Britannia awaits in Logic Artists’ Expeditions: Viking.
Expeditions: Viking is a game that every old school game may fancy a lot. All because of the main model of gameplay, a hex-bound, turn-based strategy RPG in always welcome on my PC. I don't care about the settings although I love Fallout series the setting of 10th century Denmark doesn't bother me at all. The game story is supposed to be based on a historical setting, which is quite unique when most of viking based games are set in fantasy setting. Overall good addition to almost dying turn based RPG genre.
Expeditions: Vikings shows that historical games can be great fun. It is turn-based RPG that could be considered a great, or rather perfect, mix of Banner Saga without the boring parts, and Pillars of Eternity (great RPG). Quests are really interesting and have choices that really matter. Gameplay is great - it is tactical RPG at its finest, with great map design that allow a lot of ways to solve the problem. Atmosphere and writing are spot on and so is the lore that is pretty accurate as far as history goes about vikings (and I don't mean the TV show). Also, the game can be pretty long - even up to 40 hours for first playthrough and doesn't get boring, so it's pretty great in that aspect. The only bad things to say about this game are simple, really - it is kind of a budget title, so the bugs are plenty, engine is unoptimised and sound effects are sparse. Thankfully, developers are working on fixing the bugs, so there is still hope. Overall, for what it is, this is really great game that comes out of nowhere, really. If you can overcome its limitations of sound effects and graphics, you will have a really great time with it, especially for this price.
