TeleMatch (Dec, 1984)
Ein überdurchschnittliches Abenteuer-Vergnügen, wegen des unterhaltsamen Trickmodus besonders ideal für Adventure-Einsteiger.
Home Computing Weekly (Jan 31, 1984)
Other adventures advertise "with graphics" - this is graphics "with adventure". Castles, huts, plains, forests and mountains, in high resolution, for beautiful backdrops, against which sprite representations of you and the "cast of thousands" enter, move, eat, drink, fight and die.
Crash! (Feb, 1984)
'Considering how much detail there already is in the backgrounds, I'm astonished that the animation of the characters is as detailed as it is. I think my favourite is the Raven, who flaps his way in and lands occasionally. My basic disappointment with Valhalla stems from its coldness. Despite all the things "you" can do, the life of the place seems to go on without you. Apart from dying of starvation I found I could stand still for ages and no one bothered with me. There's a touch of a travelogue about it all - just walking about seeing things and eating loads of food. I think it might have had a better impact if there was more danger immediately.'

Valhalla was one of the first true graphical adventures on the Spectrum, moving from the static backdrops of such games as The Hobbit to an immersive, interactive experience. With its Nordic backdrop, bold colourful graphics and detailed character animation, Valhalla quickly became a hit with adventure gamers looking for a little more than just text and wizards.
