Expeditions: Viking is a top down, turn-based RPG inspired by older CRPGs such as Baldur’s Gate. As the title suggests, the game is themed around Vikings, and thankfully, unlike other “Viking” games, does not use it just as a bland trope or a backdrop and forget about it later; this game truly is about Vikings and Norse history. You play as the child of a clan leader, and you are in charge of leading the clan after his death. You have to figure out your way and try to ensure that your clan prevails and is taken care of well.

Starting off, the game has amazing graphics. It is really well done and is very aesthetically pleasing, especially coming from an indie studio. The game is also very well optimised and polished. You will hardly find any bugs, if any at all. A very welcome surprise, coming from an indie studio at this age where releasing broken games with day 1 patches is the norm. The story is lengthy and offers a lot of choices. Do you give a traitor another chance, or do you banish them? Do you invite a stranger to your clan? These are the kind of things that you have to decide on as the clan leader. Each of these decisions will affect your game, even if ever so slightly. You also have a lot of choices in dialogue, and many of them lead to branching narrative choices. This is a game that is directly influenced by your choices. This gives the game a lot of replayability, and you will definitely want to play it again.

The combat is also done very well. It is easy to understand. You will have no trouble figuring out what is going on, and that is crucial in a turn-based game. As mentioned above, it is not a fantasy game. So, you will not see any mages or magic in the game, but that is something unique about this game compared to most other CRPGs set in this time period that have came out over the last few years. The game offers a lot of variety in combat, which depends on your character’s skills as well as the weapons equipped, with the option to learn certain abilities based on both. You will have to use different playstyles in combat depending on your units and the enemies you are facing. The few cutscenes that are there are very moving and well made, especially the introductory cutscene, which hammers home how daunting the task of suddenly leading a whole clan is.

Even a game as good as Expeditions: Viking still has a few things it is lacking in. For one, the character customisation at the start is not in-depth. There is a customisation screen with options, but they are not as many or as deep as other RPGs have to offer, which is a bit disappointing. Also, the game is a bit inconsistent with its voice acting. Some of the dialogue has voice acting and some does not. This is somewhat forgivable since it is an indie game with limited budget.

If you are like me and like CRPGs such as the Divinity games Pillars of Eternity or Baldur’s Gate, then you will definitely enjoy this one. This game is also very pleasing to the eye. Plus, the fact that there are no design flaws is a huge bonus point for me.

The indie CRPG Expeditions: Viking features deep combat system, a choices driven, rich story, and great replayability, making it worthwhile for any fans of the genre. This game is also a great purchase for players looking for a good viking RPG, and considering the pricing of the game, it will likely be a great value. The game has a high level of polish, satisfying combat system, replayability provided its branching narratives, it’s about as good as an indie CRPG can get. The few issues that I did have with the game were small and not noticeable. Definitely recommended!

Mjög gott leik !
Það er blanda af 'Baldur's Gate' og 'Banner Saga'.
Þú býrð til persónu þína: Kkrlkyns eða kvenkyns, Þú hefur mikla hæfileika ...
Fleiri stafir taka þátt í þér. Sagan getur breyst með ákvörðunum þínum.
Ég elska það enn meira vegna þess að það er sagan okkar ! :)
