As I kick off my slightly longer, more detailed reviews on some of my Steam games, it's only appropriate that I start with a game that was part of my youth.

Rune is, surprisingly enough, one of the few games focusing on Norse mythology that made it into history. Not many good and consistent ones out there, and this one brings its own identity in terms of gameplay, aesthetics, and character development. It creates its own accounting of Norse cultural and religious topoi in fiction, and that does more good than harm as the storyline goes. You play as Ragnar, a young man whose responsibilities escalate with the killing of his kinsfolk and the dooming of his birthplace, Wotankeld. Simple name for a protagonist, simple purpose for his endeavour. Vengeance couldn't be more bitter and more expected.

But that's where things get sharp in Rune. You're introduced to fluent combat mechanics, advanced graphics for the time (the first Unreal Engine was just starting its brilliant run), and the grandeur of the game's environmental variety. This is a videogame epic tale, with all its classic characteristics, as the protagonist rises through the image of the savior and avenger of his clan and descends into the dark realms of Helgrind, imprisoned, assuming the figure of bare life and shamanistic sacrifice - true to the Norse notion of the Cosmogonic death in order to attain the knowledge of the Runes; Wotan speared onto Yggdrasil -, to then rise again as the ultimate Berserk who transcends revenge and defies material existence. Ragnar is ready to put it on the line at every moment. And that motif is auxiliary to the development of the game's combat system, a hack-n'-slash which is as smooth as it gets, and a map configuration that challenges the player's reasoning as well as it puts them under the pressure of claustrophobia and constant darkness.

This is an atmospheric game, and a grim one as it is. The double ending is up to you, and that's a bonus coming from an action game with tacit storytelling elements. Rune scores high in both single-player and multiplayer - which is still active, and resembles heavily the fun and flow of the Unreal deathmatches -, and the variety of weapons, as well as the distinct styles and contrast in movement swiftness that each one of them brings up, enrich the game even further.

A must-have for hack-n'-slash fans, as well as fans of games that dialogue with the epic genre.

Okay, so this is an old game and you can see it in everything BUT this game has some of the most intriguing level design I've ever seen in a game like this. The levels remind me a lot more of "Super Mario 64" than for e.g. "Heretic II" (another old game in a similar mood to "Rune" itself). And despite the fact some of the polygon models are by nowadays standard already more looking abstract than simple, it features some very clever ideas and attends to the detail where one wouldn't expect it in a game from that period of time:

For example you have three different weapon types to equip: swords, maces and axes. After an hour or so into the game you will encounter skeleton warriors. Try to hit them with the sword and it could happen you slash some heads off leaving the skeletons wandering around aimlessly. Or there are zombie like creatures you can hit for ages with maces, because they get up again after a short while. Here a nice and clean razor stile sword swing can come in very handy too.

I haven't played very far until now, but what I can say is that this game has not so nice effects like "Heretic II" (yeah, I know ... the same reference again - but it's the only game in this genre that has been convertet to Amiga, wich was my choice of systems back then ...) but I find it much more enjoyable as it's somehow simpler in design yet strangely deeper in gameplay mechanics though ...

As I said before I'm not too deep into the game yet, but I hope it keeps it nice and easy to get into hack and slash feeling because I really HATE playing magic characters. Thank God this one here is more of a "Conan-Gameplay" meets "Mario-Style-Levels". And it's a very well tasting mixture that is.

Making the fun even better "Rune" is featuring some nice viking setting which isn't seen too often in a game nowadays and besides being very macho after all it gives the game at least a somewhat fresh gameplay experience.

If you like old school action games and don't mind the outdated graphics you should give this game a try when it's on sale.

This is a scam, this not the original Rune, instead a dumbed down modern port. This is honestly the most disgusting thing I've seen in a while. DO RESEARCH BEFORE YOU BUY GARBAGE LIKE THIS! Call of Rune gets 0/5

-Ten levels were removed from the single player campaign. (Although they are still playable from the maps folder)

-Some levels have changes to the scripting or geometry. Examples include no longer having to kill certain enemies to trigger an event, or a door being removed to allow part of a map to be skipped.

-At least one weapon is available earlier in the game, a few have their rune powers switched or changed.

-An autosave feature has been added which attempts to quick save the game every so often.
