Rune: Viking Warlord

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: Rune: Viking Warlord could have been a great adventure. It has all the potential that could have made it a classic, but technical problems and unforgivable game mechanics end up killing Ragnar's quest before it even begins. Rune is a port of the PC game, and the graphics show. The enviroments all have a very plain, low-end PC look to them. The monsters, on the other hand, look pretty cool.

So why not capitalize early on a genre that hasn't really seen an abundance of anything unique in particular. All three aforementioned triple-A titles share the same genre, but in essence are liable enough to start their own.

  • Excerpt: Three words are synonymous with high quality gaming on the PC: Rune, Viking and Warlord. Unfortunately for me, a gamer with a low-end graphics card, I was unable to experience Rune: Viking Warlord when it was released for the PC last year. It was pretty heartbreaking for me, as I usually get to play all of the best games available each year. Unfortunately, I wasn't so lucky in Rune's case...
