An average action rpg with a good co-op system that falls behind the best in the genre due to its simple combat system and lack of depth in every other aspect.

Vikings: Wolves of Midgard has its ups and downs: it works amazing with the small details, but sometimes it feels too repetitive and does not risk much.

A fun and deep RPG that may not reach the top of the genre but it's a solid offer.

As unmemorable as it was disappointing, Vikings—Wolves of Midgard misses the mark. With a flat story, uninteresting combat made worse by the game’s annoying exposure system, and a boring environment to boot, this title doesn’t compare to its many well-liked peers within the ARPG genre.

Vikings: Wolves of Midgard isn't quite as good as Diablo III, but it could never have been. A smaller publisher like Kalypso just can't match the budget of a top-tier Activision Blizzard game. That doesn't mean Vikings isn't worth playing, though!

Vikings – Wolves of Midgard is a compilation of popular ideas. Unfortunately, the game noticeably lacks diversity and interesting quests, and some of the design choices are simply disappointing.

Vikings - Wolves of Midgard takes a fair swing at the loot-heavy action RPG genre, but its middling gameplay fails to leave a lasting impression. Going up against the likes of the mighty Diablo III on PS4, its dull blade bounces off the competition, but Vikings is just competent enough to survive the scuffle and live another day.

Viking: Wolves of Midgard is a solid clone of the genre, but ultimately feels half-baked. The asking price feels a bit too steep when compared to other games, but I did have a good time playing co-op. I just wish there was more, and it was more polished. This will be a great game when it drops in price, but for $60 it is hard to recommend it over others doing similar things.

It didn’t take long for Vikings to bludgeon those expectations into a meaty, undulating pulp.

Shortcomings aside, hack and slash fiends who are looking for their next fix should definitely check out Vikings: Wolves of Midgard, a genre effort which more than earns its passage into Valhalla.

Is Vikings: Wolves of Midgard the kind of game that you can have a run at and finish in around the 12-15 hours it’ll take to finish its campaign? Absolutely. Just don’t expect it to be able to keep a grip on you once the end credits have thawed out.

Brute Action-RPG with cool fighting mechanics and setting, but without a complex character development, endgame or an exciting story.

Vikings - Wolves of Midgard is quite good game that tries to do some mechanics in different way. Some of them are underdeveloped and other don't work as they should. Overall, nordic settings works and it's a worth a shot. Maybe even with full price.

A distinctly below average hack-and-slash game with better examples of the genre already out there.

A game that has plenty of polish but is average underneath.

Vikings: Wolves of Midgard is a recommendable dungeon crawler, with fun and interesting enemies, a wide but not overwhelming array of player abilities, and an engaging combat system that demands that players remain on their toes and think carefully about what abilities to use and when. However, a few technical issues, and a repetitive structure prevent the game from being something for players to return to after they’ve completed the main story.

Vikings Wolves of Midgard is a passable Diablo clone, full of fresh ideas for the genre, none of which really fits into the gameplay, let down by repetition and peculiar game design choices. There are far better similar games on Xbox One, and it's very hard to recommend this one over Diablo III, Bastion or Hyper Light Drifter.

Vikings – Wolves of Midgard takes the formula made popular by the game named after the Spanish word for devil and makes it its own.

While a little unpolished, Vikings – Wolves of Midgard is over-the-top fun.
