With a prevalent Nordic theme, Niffelheim begins with the death of a warrior. As he journeys in his funeral ship towards Asgard, the warrior’s trip is interrupted and he is abducted by demons for reasons yet unknown. This abduction results in the warrior entering the world of Niffelheim, “a harsh land of ancient spirits,” to seek his fate. If we are honest, the premise is all fairly vague without being ‘bad’. To compound the issue, the introduction explaining the otherwise adequate lore is rendered somewhat silly as it is narrated by an extremely corny voice over.
