Viking: Battle for Asgard
Its worth it!
I bought this game on a whim, as well as Dark Sector. This one I like, as for Dark not so much. While there are some issues with this game it is still a lot of fun to play. It does seem as if the gameplay does not change to much as you move on more into the game. But being that the game is fun to play, thats not that bad. There are some issues with it, some of the missions are not to clear on where to go. So you may find yourself running around a lot. And besides, its twenty bucks. And some easy achievements! I have not quite finished it yet, however if you are bored and have an extra *edit* and are bored with the games you do own then this may help you with that. At least till all the upcoming titles release. It kind of reminds me of the first FABLE. Not in every way but in some ways its much like that game is. And again if you have the *edit* to use on something, by all means get this title and not some other sad game cause its close to this in price. All in all it can't be beat for the price. Pick it up.
HOLY NORSE GODS, AMAZING
This game is so freaking cool. The attacks, the graphics, the gameplay, everything about this game is just great. In some instances you can slice off your enemies arms and head in one finishing fatailc move. I recommend this game for followers of god of war, even though it doesn't really compare to gow, or action games. Not for young gamers because of some difficulty, blood, gore, and sheer amazing ability of awesome gameplay that only gamers over the age of 14 who aren't coddled like babies and are allowed to play games of this nature like gta, YOU MUST PLAY THIS GAME, NEEDS TO BE A SEQUEL!!!!!
i was impressed
The game was overall good in my opinion. Although there are a few things i didn't like. First was the controls were annoying and difficult to get a hold of, only in the beginning of the game once you get some moves unlocked that problem goes away. The story line is very confusing as well. But graphics are amazing and kills are awesome because there are so many different ones. Also there are plenty of side missions to keep anyone busy. Animation i give an absolute 10 because the landscape is absolutely beautiful, especially the oceans and seas. I didn't really mind the auto-save built in( this means you cannot save manually)although it auto saves when you quit.Sound was good as well you could hear your axe and sword cutting into the undead. This game is, as in my title, a game worth getting.
viking is a great game! I usually dont like games like this so i was very suprised how good this game is. the graphics are really good. it is really bloody when your fighting an enemy if you injure it you can completley mutilate it. pretty much the game is you are trying to fight this war against this evil demon lady and you have to build up your army. When you build your army big enough you can have this big war against places that are kindve like a boss. This game is really challenging because it doesnt show you every single place to go so you can find everything with ease you actually have to search around the whole place to find your way into places without being spotted or killed. The enemys are hard because if your fighting more than three than you have to be careful or youll probibly die so its really important to be stealthy. I bought this game about a month and a half ago and im still enjoying this game very much. this game is a really great game. I would recomend this game to anyone who likes violence killing and also a good storyline. you should buy this game.
Fable meets Viking legend
If you liked Fable, then you'll like this game. Viking Battle for Asgard is kinda like Fable...only you're a Viking battling to reclaim your homeland from an evil army brought back from the dead. I haven't finished the game yet but it's very enjoyable so far. I have to admit it wasn't what I expected...BUT this game is EXTREMELY enjoyable! You basically run around freeing your fellow countrymen in order to gather an army big enough to take on whatever fort or encampment you are trying to attack. I just summoned my first dragon and that was pretty fun. So again, if you liked Fable and you like Vikings, then this game is for you. Now, there isn't as much customization as in Fable but it's enough to keep it interesting. I've been playing this game on a HD TV that's running 1080P and the graphics and color on this game are INSANE!!! It's hard to describe how vibrant the colors are and how nice the graphics look. You'll be amazed.
Battle through the Hordes
I thought when I saw this title come out that it would be just another quick jaunt through some of the mythos of the Norse, and a quick hack and slash game. When I started it out I saw one island , and well I thought, this is going to be quick. Five days later I found myself finally beating the game, and wanting to start it over in the harder mode. There are a lot of fine points to this game. First of all the controls are fantastic, they are very intuitive and easy to pick up. The one thing is though block and dodge LT & Y when someone is swinging at you, I found that out way late in the game and it would have saved me countless times dying. The graphics are beautiful and seamless. I have yet to see a load time or a skip[ in playing as you are wandering through the lands. The story line is full of twists and turns. Most of the gameplay is pretty straight forward. Last but not least is the gamer points.... Yay a game that you don't have to Get impossible things to get them. And lots of them. Overall get it, enjoy it, and have a lot of fun killing things.
Overlooked and underrated!
Do not mind the negative reviews, this game is actually quite good. First time I put it in I played it for 3 hours straight which is a long time for me. Simplistic fighting moves with one button fatalities to boot make this game playable for hours.
Viking = The King
I recieved an Xbox 360 Arcade last Christmas and recieved this game along with some other ones. This game was a fantastic game. I couldn't put it down. The graphics were Amazing! The story had some challenges and you have to use different tactics and moves to defeat your enemies. The way the character kills his victims is gory and bloody enough to keep you fascinated even though the ways of killing are all similar. My favorite Xbox 360 game I owned. It was all around enjoyable and fascinating with an environment and setting the keeps the player looking and searching for as many achievments as possible. I would extremely recomend this game to anyone at all. They would extremely enjoy this game. It's too perfect to call a bad game. It kept me playing way after I beat it. It was just that good.
Very Very Good game
This game is awsome its like world of warcraft its third person adventure but its not nerdy at all you kill your opponents very brutaly.You can summon dragons to help you and your fellow vikings liberate hel's forces.Your main weapons are a Sword and battle ax,You can also buy throwing Ax's and theres maps you can buy that will lead you toward gold which will help you aquire additional weapons and potions throughout the game.I would definatly buy this game especially for $6
Death to the Legion Scum!!!
This game is awesome. I have put probably 30 hours into the first two (of Three) maps. Each map is significantly larger than the previous. The game has amazing graphics, definitely one of the best graphics I have played on the 360, the environments look awesome. One of the drawbacks is the camera view can cause you to lose track of who you are fighting. The sneak effect in this game is nice cause you fight so many people in certain areas so when walking behind enemies you can sneak kill them without other enemies noticing. The game does have a few parts in it that are very difficult to beat, for those parts it is good to read a walkthrough to get some advice. Following the mini map at the top right of the screen is kinda hard but the storyline is pretty much on a one track path. It is hard to get lost as long as you pay attention to the boring cut scenes. Using the dragons during the main battles is pretty cool, the graphics of the dragon induced deaths are cool. I would recommend this game to anyone looking to put in a good 40 to 50 hours of gameplay with a crap load of achievements.
