Each comes from a different mythological background and each has differentA journey through four great mythologies, Loki allows the player to take-on the role of one of four heroes: a mighty Norse warrior, a fierce Greek fighter, a powerful Egyptian sorcerer or a skilled Aztec shaman. Each comes from a different mythological background and each has different strengths and skills and, therefore, radically different ways of fighting. During an epic adventure, the player gives battle to a multitude of enemies. Hundreds of creatures and opponents of every kind have been created for the game, so that the player is going to have to fight his/her way past skeletons, giant spiders, centaurs, mummies, harpies, wild animals, a vast array of soldiers, culminating in the showdowns with formidable bosses such as Medusa, Fenrir the wolf or Fafnir the dragon. Each boss has a particular way of fighting so the player must discover his weak points. As the hero(ine) advances through the game he/she isbe able to collect or exchange thousands of items, including 500 unique objects, such as Thor's hammer or Achilles' armour.

  1. Despite revamping the same excellent style of fantasy RPG action found in Diablo II, you'll find Loki: HoM mixes familiar gameplay with mythological themes and some updated graphics for a lengthy quest worthy of your time. Even at the most monotonous points you'll want to keep coming back for more.
  2. This is one of those games that is very familiar, but still entertaining. Loki treads familiar ground, but still manages to provide a treat for those who enjoy a good old-fashioned hack ‘n slash.
  3. Loki may be awfully late for the party, but this Diablo derivation is a solid rip-off with great game mechanics and atmosphere.
  4. 60
    The graphics and sound add to the game, rather than take your attention away with a goofy voice or crummy animation. For a group of dungeon crawlers, online Loki might be an ok choice eventually, if they can fix the patching issues.
  5. As it stands, I think that judicious use of patches can iron out many of the issues with Loki. Until then, I'd still recommend it, but see if you can find it for a good budget price.
  6. Loki makes Minesweeper feel like fun and rational pastime. A few good ideas are not enough, when the execution is this bad. [Oct 2007]
  7. This game is so flawed, so monotonous and deathly, deathly dull that I'm struggling to think of any reason whatsoever to waste your time and money on it.

    Good RPG games are few and far between so we found and played this at a time where no other RPGs were out. Very glad we found it!

I'd say....give it a few patches and then it could be a 7 or maybe even a 8 but imho Titan Quest is way better (also the same setting...kind of). Expand

I cannot stretch enough how this game has haunted me, because I really wanted to give it a try. Instead of a fantastic mythological adventure I found myself fighting bugs and frustrating lvl-ups.
    As a game it fails completely, because of the implementation scaling feature. The enemy gets stronger as you do! This means that when you start your epic quest you will spend three hits killing a wolf with your wooden axe, and 30 levels later you will spend three hits killing the same wolf, in the same location with a an upgraded super-weapon!
    Further your skills are useless to level up, because for some inane reason the high-level skills and spells will progress slower than your low-level spells the more points you put in them, so the only way to do decent damage is pour all your skill points into low-level firebolts rather than your supposedly "epic" skills.

    This game is atrocious. You want to like, because the setup is great: mythology, history and the ability to fight the gods themselves, but instead it becomes a teeth-grinding test of patience, and you do not play because the game is fun, but only because you want to see where the story takes you. Save yourself the trouble, don't buy this game!

    This game is crazy because on one map is probably thousand enemies so am wonder how much would be to kill for complete game probablyThis game is crazy because on one map is probably thousand enemies so am wonder how much would be to kill for complete game probably trillions. And there is nothing good in visual or music any atmosphere whatsoever during play. Completely ugly and pointless game. Am actually give it try tested few characters and it look original, menu and some inventory look promising but this gameplay is so boring ridiculous and clumsy and definitely too much of that monsters. Actually without them you would realize that it is completely empty game just character progression and enemies keep you busy and there is nothing interesting beyond that. Especially today it look very poor, maybe some years ago it was ok but now its waste of time. Path of Exile is much better from it. Expand
