    Best developed strategy game ever! Incredible moves and commands make it really an unbeatable. Makes you really feel owner and king of europe once you try it is so trapping that your will hardly let it go. SO far I have finisjed the game 3 times and still want for much more. I think I'd like to get all factions to win.. hahaha!

    A great expansion for aggressive strategy gamers, although some of the subtleties of the original game get lost.

    By adding interesting new units, rules, and a unique campaign, it defines what all expansions should be - not just more of the same, but rather an entirely new way to play an established game. [Aug 2003, p.84]

    Viking doesn't have all the enhancements I would've liked, but its new gameplay mechanic is refreshing, and Medieval fans will definitely enjoy it. [Aug 2003, p.60]
