Fear the wolves. They are cold, they are hungry - and they will stop at nothing to survive...
Ragnarok. Legend has it that when the coldest winter descends, the Jotan will return to take their vengeance against the Gods of Asgard. The world is on the road to perdition and the fate of Midgard hangs in the balance. But when the Fire and Frost Giants begin to merge their armies, they encounter the clan of the Ulfung - the Wolves of Midgard. Bloody, but unbowed following the destruction of their village, this notorious band of ostracized Viking warriors are determined to seize their destiny and save the world. As clan chief, you must save Midgard from complete annihilation, and spearhead the charge to vanquish the fiendish creatures of the Fimbulwinter.

Firstly, this is game that is a good middle ground between Diablo 3 and Path of exile, the combat is very similar to diablo but does require a bit more thought and patience to succeed with however it is still a lot of fun and can feel rewarding when you get chain kills. There is a small element of customisation with the characters which I personally love giving the game a little advantage over Diablo and POE which can lack personality at times, the loot system is exactly what you would expect and is very hard to find faults with a nice touch is the legendary weapons being from Norse mythology. The story line is pretty rich and keeps you entertained throughout I haven?t encountered a dull moment in it, I think this is helped by the fact your character is not the typical hero and possess an attitude that never fails to make you snigger to yourself. My overall thought on this game is that is the most fun action rpg I have played in a long time and will not get old any time soon!
I bought Vikings on the day of release and I do not regret it. The combat system is extremely satisfying and the Nordic atmosphere, which consists of very good graphics, interesting locations and great music, is an amazing and unique experience. I am currently playing the game for the second time on the highest difficulty level and I am still having so much fun. I really recommend as the game is really solid.
I expected a Diablo-like game and I can safely say it's not. I've finished this game in about 12 hours. After that all your items get deleted, but you get to keep a bit of your skilltree progress. If that's what you're looking for I suppose this game is for you, but I expected more. The gameplay is fun and the music is great. The best thing of this game are the graphics they're fantastic. It really has a semi-unique artstyle. I rate it 3 out of 5 stars, I expected more.
