1UP: Viking: Battle For Asgard Preview

1UP writes: "Our first look of Viking: Battle for Asgard a few weeks ago didn't allow us the opportunity to actually control the main protagonist, Skarin. He has a number of abilities -- summoning dragons, gathering troops -- to use against Hel's army of the undead, but with only three weeks before Viking hits stores, we were disappointed when our recent hands-on time with the game revealed the hero's inability to focus on one enemy at a time (unless throwing a projectile).

Skarin can block attacks but he can't run away from a fight, even if health begins to get too low, since he lacks the ability to sprint short distances -- a minor inconvenience when you need to run everywhere in the game until you locate the teleportation leystones. In order to survive an encounter, you'll have to fight your way out."

The story is too old to be commented.
