Viking: Battle for Asgard

Dec 6, 2007

A longboat packed full of hairy, sweaty Vikings gagging for a spot of raping and pillaging might not have been a pretty sight back in the day, but believe us when we tell you Battle for Asgard is more welcome than a refreshing mug of meadand moregorgeous than a busty beer wench.

For instance, utilising a novel lighting system, Viking’s islands resemble a dreamy landscapeof fantasy.Rolling hills, verdant valleys, sprawling settlements, snowy peaks -it reminds us of Fable with its chunky, oversized warriors and fairy tale trappings, while the impressive amount of troops the engine can render at once puts even Dead Rising’s zombie fest to shame.
