War of the Vikings from developer Fatshark and publisher Paradox Interactive follows their original release of War of the Roses and continues in the same genre of multiplayer close quarter combat. Players select from either the Vikings or Saxon in...

Since the current, almost oversaturation of modern military shooters adorning the market today, it can be difficult to stand out against the crowd when creating a multiplayer game. Fatshark and Paradox Interactive have managed to distance themselves...

The idea of close-combat multiplayer melee games always sounds very exciting, but the technical and mechanical implementation of this genre provides a number of serious challenges to game devs which they often meet with varying degrees of success. It...

Streamlined in every way, War of the Vikings cut too much meat from the bone and left nothing to chew...

Thanks to war, hunger and disease, most Vikings died before they turned 30 years old. In Fatshark's War of the Vikings, you'll be lucky if you last 30 seconds. This is the follow-up to the Swedish developer's medieval battle game, War of the Roses , and...

Ah, Vikings. Boiling out of Northern Europe in the late 8th century AD, Nordic explorers and raiders spread runes and long, golden hair from Dublin to Constantinople. They traded, they slaved, they drank a lot, and in some places settled permanent Viking...

War of the Vikings is the sequel/spirtual successor/follow-up to 2012's War of the Roses. This time, we've traded in the 15th Century English battles for a Viking/Saxxon conflict. The result is an incredibly difficult and intense close-quarter game that...

Jochen Redinger: Was habe ich in den ersten paar Schlachten geflucht! Obwohl ich so viele Stunden in Mount & Blade, War oft he Roses und Chivalry verbracht habe, gingen die anfänglichen Schlagwechsel nicht gut für mich aus. Aber nicht weil mir Lags den...

Стоит признать, что у Fatshark игры о Средневековье получаются весьма неплохие. War of the Vikings сможет порадовать вас интересной системой боя, очень широкими возможностями кастомизации персонажа и отличной графикой. Поэтому если рубить головы в...

International Review By 3dnews.ru on

Fatshark в свое время отметилась экшеном War of the Roses. Примечательно, что ее новая игра, по сути, повторяет предыдущую в плане механики и идеи. Только центром событий раньше была Война Алой и Белой розы, в то время как War of the Vikings выводит на...

International Review By PCWorld India on

But at the end of the day, I'm pretty satisfied with what I've played of War of the Vikings. It goes down like a cool tankard of beer on a hot summer day. A cool, arcade-like, silly-at-times tankard of beer. And if that beer has started to skunk a little...

Die bemühte Entschlackung des Vorgängers zeichnet sich schon im Tutorial ab, das in wenigen Minuten und groben Zügen absolviert ist. Keine einleitende Geschichte, keine atmosphärische Szenerie: In einem Ring vermöbeln wir den "zungenlosen Torsten" - das...

International Review By in.ign.com on

Vikings seems built for small, focused battles. When an opponent swings from the right, you've got to parry to the left. Combat becomes a complex dance, with each warrior reacting to the other's tells – like a fighting game. But that complexity only...
