    Battle of Asgard is a good game, but the conversion to PC is quite poor.

    Even years later the game still holds up well. It's a pretty, entertaining and at times challenging trip through dark forests and brutal fights. Still, it would have been nice if they had fixed the glaring sound issues.

    Four years is a long time. The once humdrum, but spectacular console slasher is now a humdrum, plain-looking PC game.

    Lacks the polish and panache to be a true champion, but Viking is still solid, no-thrills entertainment.

    Creative Assembly was searching for their own formula for a slasher but kinda got lost along the way. Viking can be fun but calling it a 'Nordic God of War' would be an exaggeration. [CD-Action 13/2012, p.50]

    Though this title is flawed, shallow, and often bland, it does have fun moments.

Si bien, el juego no puedeun juego "hack and slash" con ambientación en la mitología nórdica, lo cual me encanta. Amo las temáticas vikingas. Si bien, el juego no puede considerarse obra maestra, ni aportar nuevos conceptos, si lleva bien a cabo un sistema de combate sólido y la posibilad de protagonizar inmensas battallas junto a centenares de aliados. No es un juego de Rol, es más bien solo acción y aventura con locaciones y personajes de la mitología nórdica que repito, me encanta. Recomendado para los fieles al género hack and slash y amantes de la mitología nórdica. Expand

    Competently executed hack and slash from the makers of the Total War franchise which has the odd 'unique', vaguely Total-War-like large battleCompetently executed hack and slash from the makers of the Total War franchise which has the odd 'unique', vaguely Total-War-like large battle (in terms of numbers, there is no tactical control of the other men on the battlefield) - something you don't often see elsewhere.

    It does feel a bit like some Total War developers' hobby project that turned into a commercial enterprise (Spartan: Total Warrior anyone?), and it has some interesting bits of functionality. The game as a whole is polished and enjoyable and combat is actually quite fun - the only thing wrong with it, is that it is extremely repetitive - to the point of silliness, really. it is a shame to see an otherwise good game turned into a ho-hum affair by endless repetition of the same tasks.

    One to keep installed if you have the disk space, and very occasionally play in short stints after a stressful day at work or something. Fun enough, and you get to be a viking (!), but by no means earth-shatteringly good.

I loved it! The game is completely gamepad compatible, despite the fact that the store page makes no mention of it. The combat is very fluid, with some nice execution moves. Combine that with the beautiful graphics and open world, and you got a winner.

    Sure it's not as story rich or cinematic as I would have liked, but I still enjoyed myself, and had a decent time chopping my enemies in half.

    Viking: Battle for Asgard for PC is a horrible console-port. The keyboard bindings are awful and re-binding doesn't help a single bit. ThoughViking: Battle for Asgard for PC is a horrible console-port. The keyboard bindings are awful and re-binding doesn't help a single bit. Though graphics are the only quite decent thing in the game but bad porting isn't the only thing making this game bad. Even in the beginning the game and its story are quite confusing and dull, and the NPCs or the combat mechanics don't support this game. Though the NPCs voice actors are good, and also one of them is legendary Brian Blessed, it feels so dumb that almost every word that NPC says is replaced with a synonym. It just feels stupid. When the combat starts, the developers tried to make the protagonist a fast killing machine with executing ability and power-based strikes. Unfortunately this has gone down the sink, because the power-based spells are nearly impossible to find and cast on PC and you just have to kill all enemies, focusing them one by one, in a single-target combat just using your normal attacks and the executing ability. Because of this, the second camp is almost impossible to clear. Also the map & inventory menu on PC is as awful too. One does not simply use any items in your inventory and the map & fast travel are the only thing that works. And what comes to the quests, they could have been more clear, like a marker where to go or something. I recommend avoiding this game, especially the PC version, but also the console versions too. This game is bin material. Avoid and save your money! Expand
