Do not buy this game, however tempted you are.
The "War" series began with War of the Roses, a very detailed, in some aspects an unbalanced game, but that is to be expected from such a game, where you're able to pick a class in classic medieval setting and go on and wreck peasants.
War of the Vikings is, however, a non-game. It's the ultimate shallow of an arcade-ish game.
The game looks very nice, but that is it. There are 'perks' that don't really do anything, a skilled player can dominate whole game playing as any class. Compared to War of the Roses, the armor and weapons, types and the quality of the armor/weapons actually meant something, while War of the Vikings is just a cash grab.
- All items are cosmetic, they do not add anything, the whole grind is just for you to open cosmetic crap that has no value.
- Not to mention that all servers are dominated by IG clan, who go around ruining all the fun when they please.
- Game had numerous bugs, crash issues, laggy lags and ultimate BS that could never possibly happen (we're talking about stuff defying physical laws etc.)
But the biggest blow surely was the debacle of 'Valhalla' edition. As we know, nowadays people have very low customer conscience, they do not respect the money they have, so a lot of people just decided it was okay to blow around 160€ on an edition that promised BS. They blew 160€ on stuff like 'instant unlock' or items and bunch of 'rare items' that made other people jealous until they were forced by their weak will to buy this edition.
The game edition also promised 'all future content unlocked' but how are you supposed to know if the actual worth of the released content will ever, and I mean ever, match the total of money you paid for the supposed 'future content'?
TL:DR this game is an expensive, shallow, buggy, laggy, arcadish rip-off of a non-gaming abortion experiment made by inexperienced man-children from Fatshark (fat as in they have fat pockets from all the money), because Paradox needed another ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ cash grab. Do I need to say more? If I could return this game, I would.
