Vikings: Wolves of Midgard - Action Gameplay

    It didn’t take long for Vikings to bludgeon those expectations into a meaty, undulating pulp.
  2. 80
    Vikings: Wolves of Midgard is a very competent entry to action RPG genre with few caveats. Peppered among the well detailed Norse mythology inspired locales are occasional performance issues and a formulaic story. While notable, these do not detract from a fun and satisfying hack and slash experience. It must be hard to challenge a king of the genre like Diablo, but Vikings: Wolves of Midgard is a brilliant alternative to the Blizzard giant.

    In terms of story and mythology this game is not that exciting. On the other hand, it feels great to overpower big trolls and fat bosses. Vikings Wolves of Midgard is a great game for everyone who wants something other than Diablo.

    While a little unpolished, Vikings – Wolves of Midgard is over-the-top fun.
  5. 60
    There’s a lot to like in Vikings, even if the game’s never able to effectively articulate how it’s different to the genre’s greats. It manages - just - to be more than a by-the-numbers Diablo clone thanks to the creative energy that went into its bosses and environment design, but it relies too heavily on that, and the assumption that you’ll be playing the game in multiplayer. As a single player experience, the limits on what Vikings can offer become distracting; making it good for a lazy afternoon of grinding fun, but not something that you’ll remember over the longer term.

    This title has some good ideas, but it doesn't really shine when executing any of them. It can be a good option if you love the genre, but there are better alternatives out there.

    A distinctly below average hack-and-slash game with better examples of the genre already out there.

La nota 10 es para subir el promedio ya que está subvalorado el juego, mi nota objetiva es 8. Empecé a jugarlo dos semanas atras y sólo pienso en llegar a casa y jugar. Está claro que no se compara con Diablo 3, pero las mecanicas de combate son perfectas, la posibilidad de seguir dos hilos de habilidades es genial. Sin duda se torna repetitivo a ratos (a que juego no le pasa?), pero la entretención está asegurada... ademas con excelentes graficos y musica. Los problemas de bug ya fueron corregidos, al menos debo llevar cerca de un 25% del juego y nada ha fallado, sin duda un juego que debes jugarlo si eres fanatico de los ARPG. Expand

    Vikings: Wolves of Midgard
    Surprisingly enjoyable
    Wolves of Midgard is a diablo style hack and slash game that you can play solo or online if you can find someone where you play as a male or female Viking to save the world from the frost and fire giants
    The character you choose does change the story and dialog slightly, but both campaigns are the same But it will hardly matter as really the story just became static before too long, I had no interest in what was going on..
    But I still managed to enjoy my time with this game…
    But that’s not the only reason this game is surprisingly enjoyable…
    Its mostly a surprise because of how repetitive it really is…
    Every mission from start to finish is the same
    and the dungeons here all start looking the same after a while as well…
    plus the loot isn’t really that cool..
    But I still enjoyed my time slicing through enemies and swapping out gear… collecting their blood to level up….
    When you do level up you get skill points to spend on a tree based off of a norse god..
    These gods are attached to weapons though which is just a little annoying…
    And theres a level cap of 30 here… so it isn’t as simple as just grinding for your new favorite weapon
    it forces you to have to choose your weapon type early on before you get a chance to play with them all or even see what youre going to get in the future… if you want to be as powerful as possible
    because unlocked skills in each tree as gifts from the gods…
    Theyre special moves and attacks you can do during battles that can only be done with certain weapons equipped…
    The combat here feels fairly satisfying…
    Theres decent challenge here and youre able to roll to dodge attacks… but there isn’t much more to it than hit and dodge and throw down some special attacks….
    And at the end of each level theres a boss…
    the bosses are pretty cool, only 1 or 2 gave me any trouble though…
    And they feel varied enough to still be an enjoyable endcap to each level..
    After youre done with this 10 hour campaign you can start again in new game plus, capped out at level 30.. but your gifts do carry over or play as the other character….
    there isn’t much incentive to do either though… especially due to the low level cap…
    I enjoyed myself..
    but theres nothing here that youll want to experience more than once…
    Wolves of Midgard is an enjoyable experience..
    You wont regret playing it.. but its nothing special…
    I give Vikings: Wolves of Midgard
    a 7/10

The game has very great graphics even better then diablo 3 which are also great. Together with the viking feeling it feels already a unique rpg . The story is also pretty good but i've seen better in rpg's like diablo . The combat is great only the enemies feel to weak , but bosses are okay. Everything else is also great except skill tree is far worse then path of exile
    update: dropped the score to 7 because you lose all your weapons in second game

The viking mythology can´t save the whole game ... Its not a total failure, but it will not even amaze you... And it´s not so challenging to defeat your opponents.... Its like a loop, nothing will surprise you ... But because I was missing something like Diablo III, I enjoyed it somehow.... Rating 6/10 is fair I think. Expand

    Everything after this - worthless. U get everything deleted except of your skilltree (even the +% of whatever by leveling up - deleted!)
    So, if u wanna buy a game with 12h content and scripted loot....
