Summary: The other reviewers was right, bad controls, alot of glitches; the graphics was regular playstation worthy even if that. I actually beat the game and the ending was decent but you have to work for it. I don't recommend this game unless if there's nothing better for you to do that get frustrated.
Summary: I guess this game graphic wise is decent due to when it was released but my main problem with it was the load times. Some points were pretty cheesy, like eating lizards to replenish health. The voiceovers weren't that great either but I guess they were good at the time. Another thing I didn't like was when you were in first person mode and you were using a weapon, you couldn't see it.
Summary: Pros: Incorperation of actual Norse mythology into storyline, weapons (bigger and better the further you go), challenging levels , nice long game. Cons: SLOW and numerous load/save breaks, mediocre graphics, bad guys too easy to kill. Overall I found Rune to be challenging (not the bad guys, but the levels) and it definitely gets better as you progress. The only major issue I had was the low load speeds, that really gets old.
Summary: It could have been a whole lot better, but I'ts a typical bash and slash, been there, done that, killed them, genoir. although I thought the gameplay was very fluid, the controls were bothersome at times, especially during close combat- in the heat of battle in confined areas the camera angles [gets messed up] the whole time! careful not to move your right thumb too much in battle which also controls camera angles. OY, VEH!
Ok to fill an afternoon, but nothing mind-blowing.

Summary: Jack of all games is a good name, because you get jack of their games pretty fast. This game had alot of potenial. Viking legends and characters and an exciting history. The game is ok. It's alot of killing, slashing and hacking and for the most part seems to have no reason behind it. I like hack and slash games. But I like some reason for it. That's why I enjoyed the Medal of honour games. They are basiclly shoot everything but I like the missions.
