Jeff Gertsmann tries out Viking: Battle for Asgard, and has an alright time playing it.
Jeff says: "Viking: Battle for Asgard has some really great things going for it, mostly on the mechanical side. The combat is just deep enough to keep you engaged, and the character upgrades you get feel meaningful. The problem is that everything is counterbalanced by a quest that quickly grows stale and repetitive after its first third. Even the final boss fight is just a minor twist on an encounter you'll have done at least five times before. It all averages out into a likable action game that could have been a lot more."
