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.

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.

Viking-themed mayhem! Human Head's debut is essential for anyone who likes melee combat. The campaign is lengthy, offering locations ranging from dwarven fortresses, snow-capped towns and a dwarven underworld, packed with the undead, yetis and badass crabs! The game truly shines online. The mechanics are deceptively simple, yet reward skill.
