    Beyond the initial learning curve, those patient enough to stick around with Dead in Vinland will be rewarded with a brilliantly balanced, challenging experience and will no doubt become emotionally invested in the characters and their tale of survival.

    An improved representation of the interface including font and the integration of the touch screen would have worked wonders here. Apart from that, Dead in Vinland is the perfect game for bus and train thanks to turn-based gameplay including short-interval storage.

    Dead in Vinland: True Viking Edition takes the solid survival RPG and people management of the original 2018 game and combines it with the two main DLC packs that have dropped since then. While some of the same old issues are still there on Switch – specifically the forgettable combat and random nature of its systems – there’s still a lot to like about this Viking adventure. Balancing so many spinning plates is stressful, but seeing your community come back from the brink of despair only to flourish is an experience few other games on the platform can match. There’s very little here to attract players who have already braved Dead In Vinland’s wilds, but even without support for touchscreen play, the titular isle still has plenty to offer new settlers.

    Whilst Dead in Vinland is a decent survival game, it can be punishing if you're not constantly managing every facet of your party.
