Xbox 360 PS3

Sega have sent us a review code of Viking: Battle For Asgard, from the english developers of Creative Assembly. As usual, we took the time to record a lot of gameplay footage, and here comes the first thirty minutes of the game divided in three files. A fourth video will follow quickly, and will showcase the first big battle of the game, which concludes the first island of the adventure. Enjoy !
Update: Fourth part, showing the big battle right at the end of the first island (a bit less than 3 hours of play time), is up.

Hmmm..I liked Spartan total warrior and I like Nors mythology. But somehow..I dunno the lead-character reminds me of Arnold, wich I find to be disturbing.

Although the main character doesn't seem "viking" enough for me, it will do.
I might give this game a shot, buy it and then return it in 10 days, like a "rental" :P
But I gotta say, the environment, visuals looks great and lush, and the combat do look fun, and I like Norse myth.

Hehe, Arnolds twin mystery brother, blonde Conan :P

So you feel like you can complain about the bandwidth and also laugh that you are not in any way contributing to its costs?
I felt that the gaf mods may have permabanned you a bit unfairly, but I guess they were right all along...

^^part 2 actually made me laugh. Whoever was playing was trying to free his fellow-men, unfortunately the enemies weren't to keen letting him. Then at 10: 44 whoever is playing gets hit in the back by this enemy coming from nowhere. (lol)
I felt your frustration there just a moment.

Most might not agree with me, but blocking ads is pretty much theft in my opinion.

BlimBlim and Co. put a lot of time and money into this site... and they deserve whatever money they can make from ad revenue.

I'm not asking people to click on the ads, but if they outright block them then have zero rights to complain.
Especially when we are struggling to find the money to keep the site opened.
Edit: Added the missing not ;)

It's not like you have a '360 anyway, so what choice did you have? Why not just say "I'll be getting this game." Do you really have to say "I'll get the PS3 version."?

The camera and the controls looked dire.

At the end where you were trying to get the guys out to help you and it would constantly piss up and you have to stand directly in front of it for it to work.

It just looks like a very annoying monotonous game.

yes, because I have one console and one console is enough and because of fanboys like you who see evil in each word, there will never be peace.
In the first what I ment is , I'll be geting PS3 version even there will be no videos and I don't know how it looks, is the frame rate ok and ect.

Back to the ads...

I have adblocker plus for firefox, and you can enable them for gamersyde's site only, which I have done... and I'm going to periodically click them, to help them out. Because if they can't afford to do this any longer, then what are we going to do? Deal with gametrailers inferior quality? Do them and indiretctly yourself a favor and unblock the ads for this site and help a "brother" out. Jeez. And the ads are unobtrusive unlike some sites.

Thanks for the Videos Team. I was not sure about this game but after seeing these videos, I can safely say that I'll pass. Looked very boring, combat was very slow and looked tedious and boring. Voice acting is horrible too! eew what with that Hel's voice eughhhhh!

Very nice, graphically looks great. And it kinda started slow, but after awhile i thought it looked very cool, the gameplay that is. Enough exploring too..i saw a cave, which looked absolutely awesome. And the battle with the hordes of enemies was awesome, with the dragons. I just hope there are more attack moves...sure the execution move where the sword went into the enemy's stomach and head got slashed off looks great, i really want some other attack moves too.

And what about sidequests, are there any and what are they like?

I love the cutscene artwork though, very great.
I see they learned it from Heavenly Sword episodes, more stills than animation in them.
