Die for Valhalla!
Top Critic Average
Publisher: Monster Couch
Genres: Action, RPG
Die for Valhalla! is a perfectly serviceable side-scrolling beat-'em-up that gets most of the basics right, but struggles in execution in many areas. That said, it knows deep down that it's a total product of its genre, and that simplicity is something that appeals to me in an era of bloated AAA titles that either try to do too much, or try to squeeze too many samey elements into the game just to pad it out.
Die For Valhalla! is a successful mix of several genres that mainly presents itself as a lengthy side-scrolling beat-'em-up and just like the majority of such games is best enjoyed with friends along the way. There is still a lot to chew for the lonely solo player out there, so if you into the genre and Norse mythology, do consider giving this one a possession. Odin would approve and so do we.
Die for Valhalla! features a welcome intersection of a beat'em up with an RPG and it does a pretty decent job at that, thanks to its wide amount of content which boosts the game's lifespan and challenge levels. Nevertheless, Die for Valhalla! can't avoid becoming repetitive too soon, not because it does something wrong but rather because it lacks a certain flair to push it over the edge.
