Summary

Great, old-fashioned fun.

The Good

The game is a nice, refreshing thing to play, perfect for a few afternoons. Unlike most games of its kind, this one even has a storyline, sometimes quite nice. The fact that it uses Norse mythology is what attracted me, and although their interpretation in the game should be taken with a pinch of salt, it's very entartaining, nevertheless. The game also proved great fun for my young nephew and niece. A game that can appeal to both adults and children is indeed a rarity!

The Bad

By Odin, there's not a single thing I disliked about it! :)

The Bottom Line

Good fun for just about everyone, with perhaps an exception of those who were bred in the times of Quake and started out with Pentiums in their heads.
