Wow, this game manages to make epic Viking battles completely boring. Where's the yelling and shouting? The game is suitably gory, looks ok and manages to throw alot of ennemies at you but it's all so stilted feeling. The sound design is completely abysmal, barely any sound at all. The combat system is mediocre with stiff animations and not much in the way of character progression. Looked interesting and has lots of potential but nothing clicked. Definitely don't buy this, rent if you must...
A fun, yet far from perfect slaughter fest

A third person action game, you traverse the map, killing Hel's minions and retaking back parts of the land, increasing your army and providing various other benefits till you gain enough to take part in a huge battle. While the overall game is a bit clunky, and can be very annoying (the stealth missions will have you pulling out your hair), it can be fun destroying large amounts of evil forces for a bit. Animations, along with the entire game, gets repetitive and a little frustrating.
