Vikings: Wolves of Midgard
Top Critic Average
A fun and deep RPG that may not reach the top of the genre but it's a solid offer.

It didn’t take long for Vikings to bludgeon those expectations into a meaty, undulating pulp.
Vikings – Wolves of Midgard takes the formula made popular by the game named after the Spanish word for devil and makes it its own.
Game's title speaks for itself. Wolves of Midgard may be rough and uncouth, but it is also a spir-ited, cocky and self-confident like true viking and as fascinating as good ballad told by a silver-tongued scald.

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

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.
At the end of the day it is just a cool Diablo alternative that is very tame and safe.
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.
While a little unpolished, Vikings – Wolves of Midgard is over-the-top fun.
In the end, Vikings: Wolves of Midgard is good. It retains most of what makes the genre so appealing, and the other changes, like environmental dangers, amplify the formula instead of watering it down. It doesn't move the genre forward, though, and the lack of a custom preset combined with spotty performance on middle-of-the-road hardware will make some people see this as rather unpolished. For those who want something new in the genre, Vikings is worth a shot.
