Zoink! is back and they have done it once again. You may remember their hit creation Stick it to The Man!, which in my opinion was awesome. Zombie Vikings brings that lovable art style and humor back. The artwork and graphics were amazingly detailed, creative and cartoonish. The cutscenes make me feel like it’s Saturday morning cartoons and brings me to my happy childhood place. There is just a quality to Zoink!’s work that goes above and beyond.
Zombie Vikings is one tremendous game, one of the main pillars is the visual design and perfectly made characters. Everything is overflown by incredible humor, making it a funny and fun experience for all players. Zombie Vikings is a must have game for co-op players, you simply need it in your game collection!
Zombie Vikings is a fun beat 'em up that has some excellent moments of humour, with distinct feeling playable characters and a moderate level of difficulty. While the single-player alone is good, the multiplayer is where Zombie Vikings truly stands out. Zoink Games have shown once again why it is a studio worth keeping an eye on.
Arcade brawler fans take note: grab a Viking helmet, some beer of root, your closet PS4 controller, and get to munching on some brains.
A gloriously funny and unabashedly enjoyable side-scrolling hack em' up, Zombie Vikings is great fun with friends but falls just short of true excellence on account of some glaring visual flaws.
The occasional groan-worthy joke and technical hiccup may turn some off, but underneath those issues, Zombie Vikings is a mechanically solid and visually vibrant throwback brawler.
Zombie Vikings is most definitely one of the best indie games I've played through 2015, and I would highly recommend it. It's a vast improvement on what was a similar-looking yet exemplary game in it's own right, and it makes me excited for what Zoink have in stall in the future.
Zombie Vikings is a good game to play with a larger group, swapping controllers based on performance and trying to use wit and superior skill to get the best rewards for one's character.
Zombie Vikings is an experience that would've been better if the bugs had been cleaned up and there were more meat to the gameplay. Nevertheless, what's here is pretty enjoyable. The presentation is different but inviting, while the humor hits more often than it misses. Though the gameplay can feel repetitive, the amount of content is great for brawling fans who love local co-op play or can organize themselves for some online. Though other games are better, Zombie Vikings is still worth checking out.
Zombie Vikings is a game that will either make you throw up or fall in love. It's grotesque and hilarious and exactly those two miexed with the setting can be polarising. Want to see Thor loose an eye and worm lord praise you for expanding his family and them realising how costly it is? Well... Here you go.
