Jotun: Valhalla Edition Announcement Trailer
Sep 12, 2016My impressions of Jotun: Valhalla Edition are overwhelmingly positive. While I feel the levels are sparsely populated, the boss battles more than make up for the slow-paced path. The game controlled and ran perfectly on the system. The beautiful art style and amazing sound design built an incredible world that should not be overlooked.
Sep 8, 2016A beautiful, but sometimes shallow, crash course in Norse mythology that shines in its boss fights’ designs and overall presentation. And while Valhalla Mode isn’t much of an incentive to jump back in for returning players, it adds tremendous challenge to the already difficult core experience.

The design cuts through the whole game with various larger-than-life characters, fantastical locations, and scenes pulled right out of Norse mythology. Such as the World Serpent chewing on Yggdrasil's roots as you explore the roots of the great tree. It is however sparse, and like Thora herself, there's not a lot of world building going on with her, or around her. Unlike say, Hyper Light Drifter that's packed with all sorts of tiny details. It's a minor thing, but I'd have liked to see more detail go into the map design in some of the places.
It's a good package, worth the money, and definitely needs to be in the collection of any dedicated action-adventure fan.… Expand
