( My current play time on steam does not accurately portray the amount of time I have played this game overall. I own the retail physical copy off of steam. )

This game.
I love it so much you have no idea.
I was much younger when I played it first, I was still getting innitiated into the amazing genre that is RPG games. It was times in which I was still going "oooh!" and "aah!" over stuff that was happening, trembling excited in my boots. And this game did all of that for me. The classic one that is, the one without halls of valhalla (which to an extent makes me not want to recommend you get this version off of steam).

Being a lover of nordic mythology even at that age, the figures that I came across during the single-player campaign are ones that I recognised and was pleased to see in a game perspective.
You might ask is the campaign any good?
Good doesn't even cover it lad/lass. The campaign is flawless. It has very well done story-telling, good voice acting, great game progression, event/cutscene transitions. And amazing music.
Did I mention that? This game's OST is one of the best you will ever find for a game. Ever. It really helps with the mood of the game.

If you are a person that enjoys playing RPGs with good story, and have not played this gem yet, I cannot recommend it enough. The combat is visceral, the graphics are satisfactionary for a game of its age. Hits strike true, making movement and precision vital tactics in combat.

And here's another thing. A very important thing, too.
I am a person that hates pvp (player versus player). But this game? I LOVE ITS MULTIPLAYER MADLY.
I would spend DAYS playing it back in the day, in an internet cafe before I had my first computer. I had gotten so good at it infact, that I won 3 regional championships set up by hardcore gaming fans. They were not all about the money as championships these days are. They were about the glory, about the reknown. And that is the first and last time in my life that I performed so good in a game like this' pvp due to the love I felt for it, and how much I got into it.

I knew that any multiplayer game I went into or hosted, that got people to face me, would be one I need not fear. I've gone into games where the host would intentionally remove all weapons from the map and leave people with their noob handaxe with which you spawn in MP games, and even with that, I managed to rack up the kills to the extent I was framed to be a cheater or hacker, and kicked.

Take this from a person who has played this game aproximately 6,000 hours. Not kidding.
You need to buy this. This is a good buy for any gamer's library, unless this genre is simply not for you.
But if you must buy it, take my advice, and do not buy the version that comes with Halls of Valhala. It really messed up the game in several ways, switching up the special abilities (rune powers) of certain weapons, and other stuff, in favor of a "more balanced multiplayer", which only ended up making what was already very good into something unbalanced.

It is not my way to advise for a buy that is not on steam, but steam does lack the ability to buy some games without their expansions (like in this case), or is missing them all-toghether (like for dungeon siege, a game I cannot review since I decline to buy the base game without legends of aranna, which is just .. something that is needed.)

My final rating on this game is 11/10. There are few games that have a special place in my heart, and Rune sits on the throne in that place. Buy it. Buy it now. Retail price or discounted, doesn't matter. Its worth it.

Rune is definitely a hidden gem from the early 2000s, a must-play for fans of Norse Mythology. It's basically a 3rd person hack 'n slay title garnished with some interesting jumping/crawling sections, here and there even with some simple puzzles. The action is raw and gory, decapitated enemies are a common sight too. Expect some pixel blood to flow.

The level design is pretty decent as well, ranging from mysterious, creature-infected dungeons over to goblin working settlements or viking-populated fortresses. Again, expect many severed limbs and other body parts on those premises.

The only downside in my opinion is the more or less unspectacular final section of the game and the ending. The developers could have done a better job, but some other players may have a different view on this one.

The Good:
+ Decent story and level design
+ Graphics (they were good at the time)
+ Authentic Viking setting and atmosphere
+ Fast-paced and uncomplicated gameplay
+ Gore and Blood
+ Multiplayer

The Bad:
- The latest sections in the game feel quite unpolished and rushed

The Ugly:
- Some issues on modern systems like sudden freezes. But I blame Steam for this, not the developers.

Overall a truly pleasant hackfest experience, you'll definitely enjoy it.

8/10

You can use severed limbs as weapons and throw decapitated heads at your enemies. It's not very effective, but you're playing the game wrong if you haven't done it at least once.

Also lizards are delicious.

I wasn't sure what to expect out of Rune Classic but what I found was something of a gem!

The game does itself no favours with such a slow start but soon enough you'll be decapitating enemies, slicing off limbs and biting the heads off lizards like it's second nature.

Rune is one of the best hack and slash games I've ever played, as well as the best viking game I've ever played too. Norse mythology, dismemberment, a large variety of weapons, drinking ale, breakable walls, who could ask for more? Its very enjoyable to decapitate someone and then pick up their head and throw it. I havn't seen that in games before, and its AWESOME. The game is pretty cheap on steam too, and it can run on low end computers as well, so everyone can have fun! The multiplayer is great as well, although all the american servers are dead, there is a small european community that welcomes newcomers. I'm from Texas, and i was able to play in the european servers without lagging at all! Also did i say that the multiplayer loading screen is really cool? If you like vikings, norse mythology, hack and slash games, or cutting peoples' arms off and throwing them at them, this is the perfect game for you.

It's a really awesome game but I wish the campaign took us just a bit farther. It's still really awesome.

That story, the atmosphere, the sounds, the voices, the weapons, the fighting system and the adventure around Vikings fascinated me about this game. I would describe the adventure as lonely, dark and gloomy. I think the developers took their focus mostly on the atmosphere, which composes roughly from graphics, ambient sounds, voices and the course (sequence) of events.
I had a lot of fun with the fighting system in MultiPlayer matches, though now there are some cheaters out there (but where are they not in mp...), or pro players, who play it a lot, e.g. in clans etc.

This was my first experiance with Rune, a game which is now 15 years old. Although the plot is very generic to the fantasy genre, I still found my self being emmersed in the story which is based on Norse mythology. As you get further and further into the game you find yourself getting bigger and bigger sized weapons. My favourite would be the severed limb that you can go round whacking people with.

The gameplay is very linear, however you don't have to kill much in this game to progress, there seems to be a very Tomb Raider feel to the levels also.

I really enjoyed my time playing Rune, it's a really good little Hack and slash action game which holds up well in the test of time.

I have spent several hundreds of hours playing this game outside of Steam between 2002-2006, and during this time I ran a very successful server under the name of G4n0nd3$$.

This was a very good game for its time. The story is incredibly interesting and immersive, combat is fast-paced, fluent and flexible, there is an immense amount of different weapons/powers, and the multiplayer was amazing due to the vast modding community and the possibility of in-game scripting via the console.

The game is pretty old by now however and there's not a lot of activity on the multiplayer front, but if you're a fan of Norse mythology, I'd definitely recommend this game for the singleplayer campaign alone, which has 2 different endings.

One of the first games i ever played, it was something special then, but also now.

The Vikings had the biggest, teethiest and gappiest mouths in the history of the species. This I learned playing this groundbreaking classic.

If you thought Dark Souls was way too easy, and you also like being an axe-murdering viking who likes to eat lizards and slap people with severed limbs in his free time, then Rune Classic might be just the game for you.

While those with even a passing knowledge of Norse mythology may twitch a bit at this game's plot, which centers around the typical "mistaking Loki for Satan" nonsense that happens when people need to shove Abrahamic good vs. evil conflicts into pantheonic mythology, and Hel's realm is less cold misery and more fire-and-brimstone Hell, but the plot isn't what you're there for in Rune.

Gameplay wise, I would roughly describe Rune as being what would happen if you took an unpolished early prototype of Dark Souls, removed all the RPG elements, and replaced them with platforming sections. Early game is all about dodging, blocking, and timing your strikes, as even the most basic enemies will cut through you in seconds if you aren't careful. At around the mid-game point it drops "blocking" from the list as all of the weapons become two-handers and your only defense is to not be in front of your enemy's weapon when they swing.

The levels are nicely varied, going from generic nordic village for the tutorial to a deep sea cavern, the lava-filled pits of Hel, goblin caves, a snowy mountain fortress, quasi-Steampunk dwarven valleys, and finally into Loki's realm before returning to the now-charred ruins of your generic nordic village for the showdown with the final boss.

Unfortunately while most of the game is quite fun, it does succumb in the end to what is sometimes known as "Xen Syndrome," the tendancy for otherwise good games to have a sudden dip in quality towards the end as money or time or interest runs out. The enemies lose what little sense of balance they had, with even the most basic mooks able to kill you in three shots as they swarm you by the dozen and food becomes more and more scarce, a few platforming sections that could reasonably be described as impossible (eventually forcing me to cheat after the dozenth death in a row on two seperate occasions) and a final boss that is little more than a standard enemy with three times as much health and arbitrary immunity to magic.

All told though, despite the sour taste of the last few bites I enjoyed Rune, and would absolutely recommend retro enthusiasts to pick it up.
