    Despite some moments of frustration, Viking Tales: Mystery Of Black Rock is a fun, short action title that follows the trials and tribulations of a rather vicious sea-faring tribe.

    The finger-friendly gameplay of Viking Tales: Mystery of Black Rock makes for a compelling action game, even if there's little reason to return once you've seen its waters.

    The variety of the missions is nice, and the visuals really suit the game well. It's no landmark or memorable title, but to kill a few hours one could certainly do much much worse than this little Nordic getaway.

    Enjoyable, but it takes a long time to get into. Although the graphics are cute and attractive, the story falls very flat, and the action just drags while you're struggling to get the hang of the controls.
