Genre: Adventure

Viking Squad is a lane-based brawler where you and your friends fight your way out from under the maniacal rule of the village Jarl. Along the way you will encounter strange new foes, gather powerful weapons and liberate strange new gods in an ever-expanding pantheon of plunder! Each play session consists of a new run through a procedurally generated game world. Players are given a command to take all the treasures of neighbouring civilizations. Upon sailing to each location players fight the locals for their wealth. Players control one of 4 different Vikings, each with their own move set and personality. The Vikings and their trusty longship can be equipped with items along their journey, drastically affecting their voyage.

Viking Squad Reviews

Viking Squad isn't the most creative or exciting beat-'em-up on the market, but it's easily one of the most consistent. Packing a colourful campaign across a series of varied stages - complete with alternate routes that add a lot of replay value - this is a well made arcade brawler that's especially fun with friends.

Viking Squad is one of those games that's both fun and challenging to play, doing beat 'em ups justice all the while. While it does stumble on how it treats upgrades, it still manages to shine.

Co-Op too is a treat to play, with each warrior having specific attacks and specials that benefit other warriors in very different ways (I.E. my Sword & Shield warrior can freeze enemies, allowing Luke, who was playing a Ranger, to easily snipe enemies with a charged attack); whilst there isn't friendly fire, there is environmental damage, so you have to be careful where you're throwing those bombs! The game also supports local 3-player co-op, however one minor issue I had was that you can't do this AND play online, which was a little depressing since a game like this shouldn't have these sorts of limitations. All in all, Viking Squad is an exciting, engaging and often challenging romp through viking mythos, that looks, sounds and plays the part. Definitely one I'm going to be replaying over and over again!

Viking Squad is a genuinely fun beat-em-up affair with plenty of loot to collect and secrets to find. It rewards precision over brute force and always manages to stay one step ahead of repetition.
