IGN Gives 4/10 to Beowulf: The Game

If you're looking for a video game experience that does justice to the revered epic poem, a work that more or less served as the inspiration for Tolkien and all the spin-off fantasy media saturating Western society, get ready to be sorely disappointed. Things have changed in this new adaptation of Beowulf, the video game version of which differs even from the movie in its deviation from the original. Grendel's mother is much more involved in events, Grendel whines like a schoolboy over Heorot's merry-making, and the way at which the action arrives at the major plot points significantly differs. It's never exactly clear what's happening, however, as the continuity of the game's story is smashed apart by jarring scene transitions, anemic dialogue sequences, and an overall lack of personality.

The story is too old to be commented.
