i was gonna say this looks like LAIR without the dragons, but then i noticed a dragon in the background... so, umm, this is LAIR with vikings, only hopefully, maybe, probably not, half decent

Nope, unfortunately.

This game is action adventure genre. And you know what, CA is developing this game and I'm sure that this game will be cool. Spartan: Total Warrior failed critically, but I think that CA must have learned from that. IMO CA is one of the best PC game developer ever existed. Their next-gen attempt, Viking, won't disappoint...

I like the look of this game keeping my eyes on it, nice screens.

Why should this game be not at least as good as Lair? The first reviews of Lair said it's just mediocre. Better keep your judgement until you've seen some in-game-footage.

If this game is like Spartan : Totall Warior, then I'm interested .

very interested...its a good dev and the game looks epic...If they put a strong narrative in there, and some rpg elements, this could be big

I really don't like the look of it. It looks far too polished.
Commented on 2007-08-26 17:07:40

you like unpolished games? odd

anyway. looks ok. but from the amount of enemies on screen, im guessing it plays like dynasty warriors or N3, in which case i aint going anywhere near it.

I already now love this game. The thematics, the look, now lets hope the gameplay will be good.

Looks quite amazing considering the detail, the number of characters on screen and the draw distance. Almost unbelievably good... I'm impressed.

this an RTS?
Commented on 2007-08-27 05:32:36

Commented on 2007-08-27 05:49:18
Looks cool i thought it was an RTS at 1st, love the nice graphics.
Commented on 2007-08-27 10:26:02
I hope you can create your own character ^^
Commented on 2007-08-27 23:59:13
Please be co-op, please be co-op...I've been waiting on a game like this since Rune!
Commented on 2007-08-28 08:41:50
Uh yeah, Rune. That was cool. A friend of mine had that game. Unfortunately his game was stuck at one part, always crushed at the same place, so that I never saw the end.... *buhuu* ^^
Well, yeah, the thematics are the same in this game, but I think it will play very different. At least I hope so, because gameplay in Rune wasn't the best one ^^
Co-op would be nice... Hehehe, creating your own Character and THEN play Co-op would be even better ^^

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (4 Hours ago)
