Set in worlds full of dark creatures, hidden gods, and abundant materials to be uncovered, players begin the game as a Viking living in a village that houses the Seed of Yggdrasil, which is the last bastion that protects the gods from the other realms. Fans will need to explore the wilderness to craft new weapons and be prepared to defend the sacred center of your village from the grim shadows from Helheim that prey upon its power. All the while, giants stalk ever closer to the village, seeking to destroy Midgard and fulfill the prophecy of the end of the world. Expand

    Tribes of Midgard possesses a promising concept and great tincture of rogue-lite elements and survival genre. At the same time, it is a great co-op experience, and frustratingly annoying due to its bad balancing issues and potentially steep difficulty curve for new players to the genre. It still shines in most of its parts with its astonishing visual design and catchy gameplay loop.

    Tribes of Midgard is far from a perfect survival game. While it maintains a steady loop for players to engage with, the process of scavenging, crafting, and building can be pretty boring during the first few days and relentless as deadly winter encroaches upon the player’s safe haven. Yet despite its flaws and lack of meaningful post-run progression, it’s hard to deny that when a full lobby of ten Vikings are working together, the game is at its strongest. Though there might be something for those players who prefer to be a bit lonely, the game’s large worlds may prove to be far too much to tackle when the difficulty ramps up.

    This compelling mix of top-down action and survival sets a strong foundation for further Viking adventures. That said, there’s plenty here at launch to keep you busy. [Issue#5, p.85]

    When you're playing with your whole clan, Tribes of Midgard is an exciting, hectic, co-op rush to hold off enemies and the elements – It's just a bit too unforgiving if you want to go it alone. Slaying a mighty jotun and racing against the coming of Ragnarok makes for plenty of Norse-flavored fun, but I longed for the chance to explore and interact with its world and systems with less constant upkeep, and at my own pace.

    Tribes of Midgard feels adventurous and entertaining, and while the Endless mode is nothing special, the Saga section of the game carries the weight on its own and eventually delivers, even though some annoying bugs hurt the overall experience.

    You can mix disparate features and still get a great game, but this is not what happened with Tribes of Midgard. Even though it’s muddled, it could still be a great survival game if it didn’t waste so much of your time.

    After a few hours of playing, you quickly realize that Tribes of Midgard is trying too many genres at the same time and doesn't follow through on its ideas. This RPG-inspired survival Rogue-Lite offers some great things, but too many game systems lack depth to engage players. The excessive simplicity of the combat mixed with a loot and a minimalist crafting hard to forget the redundant and unbalanced structure of the experience. There remains a sympathetic and pleasant universe to explore. Too bad it is impossible to do it at your own pace, because it is mandatory to join the camp after dark.

All set in Norse(ish) mythology with a really cool art style. Only complaint is the tutorial, it teaches the core mechanic of the game well, but doesn’t show you your priorities in actually being successful in a Saga run. After a few attempts (and maybe a Google search or two) and you will see where you need to be. Damn fine game, not to be slept upon - especially for this price point. Also it has Linda Expand

It definitely does get repetitive over time but I had a friend platinum it (which includes getting to 50 on a seasonal pass) so if you enjoy unlocking classes and completing challenges, there’s enough of it here to do so. They aren’t the type to platinum something they don’t enjoy. The game is essentially about learning where everything is, what the recipes are, and then being able to do it all as fast as possible each day and night, where you’ll need to return to the base to defend it. Very much reminds me of the Kingdom series (and Kingdom Two Crowns) but brought to a top down style view instead of a 2D side scroller. Worth the $30 I think it was, and definitely moreso on sale, if it looks like a good time to you. For what it was, it was enjoyable. I didn’t give a higher score as I don’t feel it compares to full scale AAA 9/10 or 10/10 titles in terms of content, graphics, etc. but 6 (6.5 if I could give it) is a perfectly fine score the way I grade them so give it a shot if it interests you.
