- Summary: Viking: Battle For Asgard takes players to the world of Norse Gods, where the Goddess Hel in all her fury, has raised an army of demonic warriors sent to enslave the mortal realm of Midgard and ultimately provoke Ragnarok - the apocalyptic battle that will destroy even the Gods themselves. Play as Skarin, a powerful yet flawed Viking warrior, filled with rage and ready to wage war on whoever stands in his way. Manipulated by the gods and fated to a destiny he has yet to understand, Skarin is the only one able to stop this ultimate clash of great wills. As Skarin, players leave behind them a bloody trail of dismembered foes using a huge array of ruthless and brutal combat moves while mastering the addictive and destructive mystical powers and abilities given to him by the Viking Gods he looks to come between. Explore vast and visually stunning open-world environments where gamers strive to free enslaved warriors and lead them into huge, epic battles featuring colossal giants, powerful shaman, deadly assassins and the Gods' own champions. Tame mighty dragons and unleash their rain of fire, laying waste to the enemy hordes that stand in your way and use Skarin's emerging skills to strategically turn the tide of conflict. Taking full advantage of the technology only next-gen consoles offer, Viking: Battle for Asgard excels at flowing seamlessly from small-scale battles to massive wars featuring multitudes of bloodthirsty warriors waiting to unleash their fury.

[Anonymous]Apr 1, 2008Best hack and slash in years.
Apr 29, 2013This game is a Great game which I have put many hours into. This game was a early game to the 360 but has remained one of my favourite's.This was one of the first hack and slash games that I ever played. Everything just fits well together, playing as a Viking. The Gameplay is sometimes a bit slow and the controls can get lumpy, the game sometimes glitches during big battles but apart from this the game is great if you like allot of blood and guts, and taking out allot of enemy's at a time.… Expand
GioD.Mar 28, 2008Creative Assembly have crafted another suberb gem for their 2nd concole effort. Viking is ALL brutality, plain and simple. You roam the land of 3 MASSIVE islands to free and recruit other warriors into your army so you can go up against Hel the goddess of death. Once you recruit your warriors you go into battle, but when you go into battle, YOU GO INTO BATTLE. I'm talking hundreds and hundreds of guys on screen hacking and slashing away at one another. If your into action and brutality or like your battles on FULL SCALE ASSUALT (and who doesnt), then you cant go wrong with Viking. Cant wait to see what Creative Assembly does next.… Expand
BenThemanAug 29, 2009Pros:
-Non stop action
-Amazing large scale battles
-A plethora of enemy types that can be approached different ways for maximum effectiveness.
-Open world to do quests in the order you want.
-Last boss was a let down
-Repetition can start to let the fun out near the end
-Only single player if that is something that bothers you
This is a great game and its a shame it was reviewed so harshly. A second Viking game could have been a true masterpiece.… Expand
SteveT.Mar 27, 2008Ok for a hack n' slasher. Gameplay can be a bit clunky and repetative, but there is nothing terrible or unforgivable. The only problem so far is there is nothing outstanding about the game so far. I hope the dragons bring this game up a notch. Rent is the most likely recomend, I bought it and will hold on to it for a while, but this one is likley to end up in the trade category before too long.… Expand
AlexB.Mar 28, 2008Well, I love this game. I played it for a few hours and I can say: If you love the vikings, huge battles, simple controls and a lot of hack n slay fun, then you should get VIking. + great battles + great atmosphere + for adults only - somethings it slowsdown - the graphics are not the best - the sound is not the best, too but nevertheless a really funny game, that keeps you entertaining for a few hours… Collapse
Apr 27, 2011A "lesser" version of Fable. Art style is similar to the "Fable" series. Being 3 years old, was a little shocked how a random 3year old games graphics were as good as they were. Buttons are easy to learn. Game took me about 8-10hours on the harder difficulty. The quests are pretty simple, you free prisoners or kill a bunch of guys in a camp. My favorite thing about this game was the huge 100vs100+ battles you had at the end of each island. Managed to get all the achievements in 1 run. If you can find it for 5-10$ and are looking for a decent hack and Slash, id recommend buying it.… Expand
