    It doesn’t always keep the hits coming constantly, but Jotun is most definitely one of the more beautiful and enjoyable adventure titles we’ve played, with enough continuing challenge to ensure that impressing the gods will be no short order.

    Jotun is a short game, and good players can probably plow through it in about 3 or 4 hours, but even with the ending behind me, I find myself dying to witness some images again and wanting to try different strategies. I want to hear Thora tell her tale again. Any good bedtime story that makes you want to hear it again right after it’s over is one for the ages.

    Jotun is an epic adventure game that surprise for the colossal scope of its battles and beautiful art style.

    A nice adventure, as it was originally on its PC version. The new features on this Valhalla Edition are not worth the wait.

    Jotun: Valhalla Edition is a throwback to retro gaming in terms of both art style and gameplay. While the minimalist design manages to offer quite a bit of variety, the lack of combat and exploration options becomes evident rather quickly. Still, anyone interested in Norse mythology mixed with retro gaming and old-school art design will enjoy Thora's ascent into Valhalla.

    Jotun is a stylistically impressive and complete game with great Norse imagery, interesting boss fights and solid gameplay.

    The team at Thunder Lotus is on the right track, but I hope their next effort focuses on adding more depth and intricacy to their work.

    One of the best indie games ive ever played.
    What it held back from perfection was a poor level with lava and rocks and a lackluster final
    One of the best indie games ive ever played.
    What it held back from perfection was a poor level with lava and rocks and a lackluster final boss.
    The music with great environments and the anticipation of the next boss battle are gloriously done.
