Summary

A fierce struggle is taking place within the realm of the Norse Gods. The Goddess Hel has been banished for defying Odin, Lord of Asgard. Angry at her fate, Hel has raised an army of undead warriors to enslave the mortal realm of Midgard, and then provoke Ragnarok - the apocalyptic battle that that will destroy Asgard and the Gods themselves. The task of stopping Hel and defending the future of mankind falls to Skarin, a promising but deeply flawed young warrior, ignorant of the true reason for his favour with the Gods...

Everything Viking does (stealth aside) is competently put together, but it lacks the flair and fluidity you want from a truly great hack-and-slash game. The same can be said of Hardlight's porting, which is smooth and reliable, but comes burdened with awkward keyboard controls and a capped framerate.

Though this title is flawed, shallow, and often bland, it does have fun moments. The spectacle of the gory violence might win budding psychopaths over with its visceral charms, and some of the moves have a weighty feel to them, but the real standout feature is the crush of the pitched battles. The only real competitor in this respect is the Mount & Blade series, and the skirmishes in Battle for Asgard are generally grander and more accessible, and consequently less intricate.

A Viking le ha faltado el "empujón final" para codearse con los grandes, pero el estar ambientado en la era vikinga y contar con cierta sensación de libertad lo convierten en un título bastante recomendable. Más si tenemos en cuenta que se ha lanzado al precio de 12,99 euros. Desgraciadamente, la falta de ambición para acometer una adaptación más seria nos ha privado de un mejor título, aunque entrar en el mundo de Viking: Battle for Asgard garantiza muchas horas de diversión.
