Play Magazine Writes:
"There's been ample coverage of Sega's latest potential über franchise but little has been established about the game's infrastructure and overall flow. Seldom have I been so surprised by a review disc. Judging by what I'd seen prior (Sega wisely kept a tight lid on early code), I was expecting a linear action/adventure similar to Beowulf-which done right would certainly be welcome given the universe (they had me at Midgard), but I never dreamt that Viking would offer up an epic more along the lines of Fable... If this one doesn't launch a major franchise, then there's absolutely positively no justice in this world or Valhalla."
"Fable with Vikings meets Kingdom Under Fire, only it's prettier and far better tuned than either."
