    Petite note d'encouragement pour ce petit jeu dont la direction artistique est très séduisante. Les dessins sont fait maison, la bande son est très sympathique, les Boss sont très réussis voir impressionants.... mais il manque un petit quelque chose pour en faire un hit !

    Ce que j'ai aimé (+) : - Les graphismes - Les boss mémorables - L'univers mythologique Ce que je n'ai pas

    Ce que j'ai aimé (+) :
    - Les graphismes
    - Les boss mémorables
    - L'univers mythologique

    Ce que je n'ai pas aimé (-) :
    - la pauvreté des coups... des combos auraient été les bienvenus.
    - la pauvreté de l'action. En dehors des boss, c'est plutôt (très) pauvre en ennemis et trop peu varié. On se retrouve à errer dans les mondes par formalité... en attendant de tomber sur un boss.

    Voilà, le jeu manque de profondeur. L'idée, la patte graphique, l'univers... la forme est là, mais il manque encore pas mal de profondeur pour en faire un super jeu ! J'encourage les developpeurs à faire une suite plus punchy, et plus profonde dans un univers qui le permet ! La mythologie celte a de quoi alimenter les scénaristes.

    Typical game that confuses the difficulty with being unfair, many attacks have a ridiculous hit box, besides that their attack patterns to be random can sometimes the battle can be impossible and others easier, so you depend a lot on luck . The mechanics of combat are very simple and since the maps do not mark the character and sometimes they do not represent the terrain too well, SoTypical game that confuses the difficulty with being unfair, many attacks have a ridiculous hit box, besides that their attack patterns to be random can sometimes the battle can be impossible and others easier, so you depend a lot on luck . The mechanics of combat are very simple and since the maps do not mark the character and sometimes they do not represent the terrain too well, So practically, you will go blind sometimes. The music is fine, but nothing really memorable, the story is less entertaining and the artistic style is very beautiful, probably the only thing in which the game highlights... And to introduce people to Norse mythology. Expand

    Way better than I imagined, and surprisingly engaging. Artwork is not that beautiful (but the camera frames some beautiful panoramas), movement is sluggish, story is unwelcome (in icelandic I believe). And despite all of these, the mostly barren worlds and the battles against the giants (slow but not too hard, no sense comparing this to Dark Souls) proved compelling. Good for what it is.

    Jotun: Valhalla Edition is one of the most outstanding indie games in recent years that will delight both fans of the genre and the Nordic mythology. It stands out for presenting an interesting story, a magnificent artistic design, precise control, exploration, puzzles and beautiful melodies. All this accompanied by great battles against the Jotun, which are undoubtedly the best of the title.

    Jotun is a game of two halves, unfortunately, the half requiring exploration is an exercise in monotony. The true core of the game is found with the excellent Jotun battles, where you are truly challenged, whilst rewarded for your efforts.

    The surreal fantasy world shows a lot of potential, but battles as well as puzzles are too simplistic and monotonous.
