Angry Viking Review
- Great Miller-esque 3D visuals.
- Fun mindless concept.
- The full extent of the gameplay begins and ends with the defeat of your first opponent.
It's fun to knock a few heads in after a stressful day, but even when the red-mist has descended it's not hard to realize that Angry Viking is an empty action title.

A few lights need to be switched out in your brain to really enjoy Angry Viking by Zaxis Games. To be more specific, you'd have to be in a very specific mindless mood to find Angry Viking truly appealing as its hack and slash gameplay is quite literally all you have to look forward to.
With a virtual stick under your left thumb and a weapon-swing button under your right thumb, you'll be quickly acquainted with the entirety of Angry Viking's gameplay within seconds of your first villager appearing to defend his town. There are cows to kill and they'll provide you with some meat and a point of health, but it's a futile quest to keep your health full as the merest scratch will start to deplete your short-lived health bar.
In stark contrast to the gameplay, the visuals are beautifully designed, with its large and somewhat complex village with town-center. The black and white 3D models are offset by the large blood-splatters giving the game almost a Frank Miller inspired feel which helps to add to the violent theme.
There are very few reasons to warrant playing Angry Viking at this time, especially when the lack of gameplay can't even be held up by the game's slick visuals. As it is, you'll smash your attack button and occasionally your special attack button with no real purpose until your health bar hits zero - it's a cathartic method of bashing out your anger, but ultimately a pointless one. Only those after some virtual 'therapy' need apply for this title.
