Summary: I like the massive destruction, and I love the heroic battle prowess you feel with Beowulf as he slaughters everything. Accurate weapon handling (i.e. bigger weapons are slower, harder to swing and control) and fairly accurate combat play in single battle. Massive battles get a little confusing and everyone is just kind of flailing around. Only issue I've had is the brightness.
Summary: This game follows the movie up to a point then you go on to other missions with your thanes and Wiglaf under your command,it has smooth fighting controls and character moving. I have never seen a commercial for this game let alone a single advertisement, i just found it on ebay. Many monsters,rebels,and creatures to fight (including Grendel at the first level of play), and its not one of those impossible games to get thru, so get it and beat, its worth it.
Summary: First of all, for $20 this game is a great deal. It is a lot of fun and the graphics and gameplay are pretty well put together. I would reccomend it for any gamer that likes the action/adventure genre. It doesn't have the in-depth world of Oblivion or another RPG, but is definatly a lot of fun to play.
Summary: This is a very strong game and has very few weaknesses. Its an absolute steal at only $20. The game has good legnth a very good storey and is great after long hours of playing games like oblivion where you have to focus. You just run in and hack enemies to death with your inhuman abilities. The game runs around 6-8 hours. That may not seem long but you will find yourself playing sections again after beating it the first time. Its feels great tearing enemies arms off etc.
Conclusion: This game really isnt that bad. You can get your hands on it for around 3 quid these days. And it will provide you with hours of fun. Well put it this way i purchased this, completed it and am giving it 4/5 mainly because i got it for like 3.50... So in perspective of games that cost 40 quid... think about it.
Conclusion: Ever Played Viking ? Well its like that. The good old hack 'n' slash ! Why so low reviews its not bad. Well after you get past the tutorial.Voice acting good , ray winstone and Brendon gleeson !
Conclusion: I got this game thinking it wouldn't be very good reading all these reviews of 1* and 2* but I took a chance and got it,as I started to play it I thought it was great killing the sea serpents like of the movie and then snapping the arms of the Enemys and bosses also, the graphics were great using my HD vga cable. If you are looking to buy this game take a chance like I did.
Excerpt: Pretty fun, although it got boring towards the end, and fairly easy achievements make this well worth a rental. Also, I thought Ray Winstone and Anthony Hopkins did some really good voice acting for this game.
