    With great visuals, epic comedy-enthused slapstick gameplay, tons of content and sublime production values, for my money, When Vikings Attack is hands down, one of the best indie games available for Playstation Vita today. Add to that the wonderful 'When Vikings Relax' DLC and a relatively modest price of entry, and you're left with an utterly essential thoroughbred that no self-respecting Vita owner should do without. Seriously, free up 600mb's of memory real estate, drop £7.99 on When Vikings Attack (plus the DLC of course), and enjoy. I can as good as guarantee that you'll be glad you did. See you on the crazy golf battlefield! Expand

    For the cheap price, this game is perfect. There are plenty of levels and multiplayer modes to keep you busy at first. The real fun though is when you complete the game, and then have to go back to beat the challenges on each level and unlock new characters. Getting high combos is very fun and challenging and extends the replay value indefinately. I have already invested 20 hours in this game, and can see myself playing for awhile. Some people call it too simple, but they are simple minded individuals....there is a hidding depth to this game that you will realize is there after a few hours. The game looks amazing on the Vita and runs at a constant 60fps. This game is very fun alone, but is super fun with friends or online. I have played all Vita games, and I would have to say that this is in my top 3.....AND ITS ONLY like 7 bucks on PS plus. If you love classic challenging gameplay, and are a fan of the powerstone series or any partygame that has a game within where you throw **** at eachother....PICK THIS UP NOW!!! I give it a 10 for its price(10.5 considering you get both copies)....I would give it a 9 if it was full priced. Collapse

    Why aren't there much more games like these? Beautiful, quick, cheap and, the most important of all, easy to play. It's basically what anyone wants from a portable, not touchy things. GREAT portable game!

    Pointless violence is fun and this viking showdown is good for some old-fashioned arcade smashing especially in multiplayer mode. It's an debut to old Amiga games. Back then all you needed was a joystick with two buttons. [Jan 2013]

    This arcade title has much potential, but it's only grounded in the multiplayer modes which are fun. On the single-player side it lacks variety and a background story.

    Thoroughly addictive. [Jan 2013, p.81]
