    After 20 plus hours of gameplay, I am still enjoying slicing and dicing my way through the levels to reach 100%. That may not seem like much of an endorsement to you, but for a dad of three who works 60 hours a week, that's saying more than you may know. My time is precious to me, and when I can find a game that stays fun and enjoyable and helps me bring both my kids and friends closer, I'm all onboard. The few downfalls Zombie Vikings has are in no way enough to hold this game back from being a jewel amongst indie games.

    While the humor and random aspects detract from the story and premise, if you just get the basic story and skip the rest, it really is a blast to rush through.

    Zombie Vikings is a hack and slash with a very particular style and with a surreal sense of humor, but perfectly fits in the game. We have to take control of one of the 4 Vikings Zombies and we will have to search the eye of Odin that has been stolen by the god Loki. Play it alone or in company with a fun cooperative mode and feed yourself from brains.

    Zombie Vikings is a fun game for the first few hours. It is a joy to look at as the art style is, as expected from Zoink! Games, stunning. Sadly the story wasn’t exciting enough to keep me gripped and the jokes always fell flat, which was a shame.

    Zombie Vikings takes an interesting premise and a beautiful art style and squanders them alongside a bulk of other issues. Bugs that should've long ago been patched out before migrating to Xbox, a sense of humor that only induces cringe, and a campaign that overstays its welcome and rewards button-mashing come together to form something fittingly brainless. Minimal simple pleasures might be found here if you and a few friends are looking for just another co-op game, but even then there must be others you haven't yet played that more often reward you in nearly every way.

The story is ridiculous but it stays true to itself and flows in a nice manner. The gameplay is a bit repetitive but the change in environments, the ability to constantly unlock new gear and upgrades, and the search for side quests help to keep the game fresh. Plush, compared to other indie games, this one lasts a long time. I like the art style by this developer. Very original. I would definitely by a sequel and anything from this developer. Expand

    Really like this game, cause I can play it coop with my brother over the internet. The humor is quite nice, the artstyle is fun, and the storyReally like this game, cause I can play it coop with my brother over the internet. The humor is quite nice, the artstyle is fun, and the story is funny as well. Only complaint is that there are no combo options in combat. It's just mashing a single button mainly to attack enemies. There are a few other attack options, but it's a bit too simple. Other then that, nice co-op game! Expand
