Vikings is an OK game but it’s nothing special given its potential based on setting. For a certain type of combo action fighting with arcade-style speed type of person, it may be perfectly fine. For an ARPG fan who was looking for the next great game, it’s just not there yet.

Vikings: Wolves of Midgard wants to be different than Diablo by adding survival aspects, which is the main problem of the game. Yet it still might be appreciated by Diablo fans, because the combat is still fun. Just beware of the bugs that are spoiling the overall experience. After some patches, the game could be worth recommending.

Overall, Vikings is an enjoyable game with environments that are destructible enough to be weirdly satisfying and gameplay that’s entertaining enough to carry it (provided you have a gamepad), but it lacks any kind of narrative weight and begins to run out of ideas for varied boss fights toward the end.

It’s an entertaining and brutal game with some funny moments, like hearing your burly giant slayer mumble about his fingers numbing in the cold weather. I guess even vikings get cold.

This game is best played one time through the campaign but can be something that you can enjoy playing with friends if you want something different.

If you are a fan of dungeon crawlers, you will likely find yourself having a good time with Vikings – Wolves of Midgard. Despite its lack of satisfying loot, the game brings forth some really great visuals and some interesting ideas to the dungeon crawler formula.

Vikings: Wolves of Midgard is well worth a try for anyone who enjoys a hack 'n' slashy dungeon crawler. It offers fun and interesting Norse-themed enemies with a simple (but effective!) range of player abilities coupled with an engaging enough combat system that keeps you thinking.

At the end of the day it is just a cool Diablo alternative that is very tame and safe.

Average execution across the board makes for an experience that, while not terrible in moment-to-moment gameplay, leaves no lasting impression.
