    Vikings: Wolves of Midgard is a more than a decent clone of Diablo it's a game that you have to be motivated to advance and kill everything that is in front of you, aiming to grow your character to be able to face strong enemies. Its great setting and development contrast with its repetitive action that will not fit all players and the high launch price.

    The Viking setting and Norse mythological themes make for a perfectly interesting alternative to Diablo's standard holy-warriors-versus-demons setting.

    This hack & slay doesn’t show any major flaws, but it also doesn’t excel at anything. Solid entertainment if you’re finished already with Van Helsing and need another helping of blood, guts and loot.

    Viking: Wolves of Midgard is a solid clone of the genre, but ultimately feels half-baked. The asking price feels a bit too steep when compared to other games, but I did have a good time playing co-op. I just wish there was more, and it was more polished. This will be a great game when it drops in price, but for $60 it is hard to recommend it over others doing similar things.

    Vikings Wolves of Midgard is a passable Diablo clone, full of fresh ideas for the genre, none of which really fits into the gameplay, let down by repetition and peculiar game design choices. There are far better similar games on Xbox One, and it's very hard to recommend this one over Diablo III, Bastion or Hyper Light Drifter.

    If you’ve worn out your Diablo disc, Vikings: Wolves of Midgard may fill a tiny bit of the void but mostly, its painful similarities yet numerous missteps will likely just frustrate you.

    As unmemorable as it was disappointing, Vikings—Wolves of Midgard misses the mark. With a flat story, uninteresting combat made worse by the game’s annoying exposure system, and a boring environment to boot, this title doesn’t compare to its many well-liked peers within the ARPG genre.

    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

    L’indé du jour n’est pas un jeu de plateforme, ce qui en soit troue le cul, lorsqu’on sait « l’originalité » du monde indépendant à cet égardL’indé du jour n’est pas un jeu de plateforme, ce qui en soit troue le cul, lorsqu’on sait « l’originalité » du monde indépendant à cet égard !… mais alors si ce n’est pas de la plateforme, c’est donc… du haque et slache à deux balles et à la Diablol bien entendu… autrement appelé (également) « ah quelles taches » étant donné ce sous-genre pour trépanés du ciboulot, cela va sans dire.

    Donc on tabasse des vilains dans la neige et puis plus tard, je suppose des méchants « boss » très énervés mais je n’ai pas tenu jusque là : je ne faisais que passer et m’ennuyer en 30 secondes chrono. Les graphismes sont presque présentables pour une daube de ce petit gabarit mais très génériques aussi.

    Tout comme le reste de ce Hak et L’tache qui transpire la répétition et le niveau sub-zéro du jeu vidéo : normal me dira-t-on, ça gèle, on se fait chier et en plus, ces Loups de gare nous les cassent !
