IGN Retro: Lost Vikings SNES Review

The Lost Vikings didn't break the rules, and it didn't open the floodgates for waves of imitators. It wasn't the high-water mark for a budding genre, and didn't set new sales records. There's no denying that Blizzard went on to bigger, better, and more important things, and it's not surprising that they've left the Vikings far behind them. Still, this was the moment when people stood up and took notice; where Blizzard came into their own. It is smart, stylish, and different, and those are the same qualities gamers still look for today.

I so would love to see Blizzard make a new Lost Vikings game. I loved how you would have to switch back and forth through all three characters to open a door or what not. The only bad part was if one of the vikings died you would not be able to go on if you still needed that person to open a door. But the puzzles were neat and so was the game. So I would love to see what Blizzard could do with the game now.
