Jotun: Valhalla Edition‘s high difficulty bar will undoubtedly be a barrier to some players, and the basic combat is unlikely to impress, but it still remains a wonderful game. Thora’s tale is harrowing, motivating you to attempt to give her the peace and glory she seeks. The boss fights are masterfully created bouts where patience and timing and flourishes of ingenuity win over frenzied attacks. Most of all though, Jotun feels unique.
Jotun is a short game, and good players can probably plow through it in about 3 or 4 hours, but even with the ending behind me, I find myself dying to witness some images again and wanting to try different strategies. I want to hear Thora tell her tale again. Any good bedtime story that makes you want to hear it again right after it’s over is one for the ages.
Jotun isn’t a long game by any means, but it packs in a lot. The diverse environments are beautiful, the boss fights are expertly designed, and Norse mythology is just cool. It also tells a personal story that makes the ride all the more enjoyable.
