I agree they could have made an extra island or more things to do on each island but the gameplay and storyline was good ^^

A lot better than I thought. Definitely 7 but yes too short, they should give you more time to train up your character. Also I think sneak mode is very fun in this game but it could have been made better. I think if they took a little inspiration from oblivion into this game it would have been a bit better.

I say 7. Too bad it won't sell enough to justify a sequel though. With a few things fixed, like the aiming/facing, the automatic jumping of obstacles whether you want to or not, and it's length, the sequel would definitely be a close to 'A' rated game.

A lot of fun, but could not in good conscience recommend the game as a buy, not when there is so much out now. Definitely rent it & see if it's your tastes ( I did, and went out and bought a used copy ), or wait to pick it up later used.

definitely those issues JayMax mentioned, and the combat system is not up to par either. they were trying to copy God of War's, but it didnt turn out that way.

if they made the combat more like say, Assassins Creed, that would be awesome. i could easily take on 15-20 enemies at once in AC, and come out fine, cause the combat was so fluid and well done. the counter attack move fucking owned in that game.

i would say if they fixed those minor issues, made the combat system better and also made it so you could command a small group of Viking allies normally through the game (when you are free roaming, not in a large battle) to help you out, the game would be well worthy of a 9-10 out of 10.

I give this game a 10. It is a true original game. I can hardly put it down and find it one of the best xbox 360 games out yet. It is up there with Bioshock for 10/10. I do not give many 10s. Bioshock being the only other one I would give out but this game deserves it.

I gave it an 8, thought the graphics were good, the battles were epic and of course cutting off an enemies limbs never gets boring.

I would have to give this 7 out of 10.

It a decent game but it just gets to repetitive as you play through it.
nice easy 1000 points though.

I am actually pretty please with this buy so far. It is simplistic in nature for a lot of it, but that is, to me, what makes the game fun to play. I'm enjoying it quite a lot. Some issues bug, and I need to master more moves and what not, but, yeah, considering a lot of garbage that gets made that tries to resemble this kind of game, I'd say this one is more of the top tier.

I give it an 8. I really like this game and I'm glad that I bought it. Much better than Beowulf and Conan games. The graphics and the battles are awesome. The storyline are great too. Very easy achievement points.

Six. I loved it to start, but then it became a chore, doing the same things over and over and over. That, and I could NOT beat Hel on hard before I had to take it back to Blockbuster.

I totally agree with A Satyr!

It just got a little repetitive towards the end.

8/10

This game is severely under-rated. I mean come on. You are a ridiculously awesome Viking that kills giants but slitting their Achielle's tendons, stabbing them through the heart, and then ripping their head's off. You can't get much more awesome than that! The only thing that really bothered me in this game were the camera angles. Overall though, it's fun, you get to chop limbs off, and the achievements are very attainable with a good walkthrough/guide. 9/10

I gave it 6/10, i luv these kinda games, but this one was kinda repetitive, the achievements are really good plus there are excellent guides for the skulls, they have made the gory graphis perfect and the overall graphics are really good, I did go on this couple of months ago but rushed into it and stop going on it for awhile. I went back on it yesterday and Im getting back into it, i think im on the final island and i love the achievements.

Overall Brilliant game

I gave it a 7/10. It's a cool game, but I do agree the walking thing really didn't do it for me. It was way too slow-paced and that kind of took away from the overall experience. The battle's were kinda cool but the frame rate problems? Kind of made it less enjoyable. I guess you can say that they had some pretty cool things within the game it's just the way they turned out wasn't too amazing. And it DOES get a bit repetitive.

Either way, I'm a big fan of hack and slash games and I don't believe there's too many out right now so if anybody's in to this kinda stuff you should at least give it a rent.

As for me, I've gotta spend a couple of sleepless night to finish this 1k!
