*THE VERDICT IS CLEARLY OUTLINED BELOW*

Prepare to bite your tongue and grit your teeth because "Volgarr the Viking" is HARD. Proudly flaunting that "old school" platforming difficulty that so many games go for these days this game truly nails it. Overall the game is fun. It has some good music, it controlls pretty well overall (although I personally would have liked a little more air maneuvarability when jumping), and the gameplay is satisfying. The choice to block with your shield, try to hack an enemy down with your sword (which like the whip in old school "Castlevania" games has a rythm to it and cannot be spammed for rapid damage), knowing whether or not to use an evasive roll or jump and the use of long range spears which can also act as platforms when thrown in to walls make for satisfying combat that tests not only your reflexes, but your know how. The level design, while nothing extrodanarily special is pretty good overall, with a few really cool stages in there (I particularly like the horror themed levels filled with all of the dead vikings). The same can also be said about the game's bosses: pretty good with a couple of stand-outs. My biggest issue with this game, however, is just how difficult it is in conjunction with level length and lack of check-points. You get unlimited lives (Odin be praised), but if you die it's back to the beginning of the level. While these levels aren't incredibly long, these aren't the kinds of levels like in "Super Mario Bros." where you can get through in about a minute or less if you know what your doing, either. With each death I found myself, almost as if on instinct alone, quickly and precisely getting to where I died, getting past it, dying again, rinse and repeat. Needless to say this could be a bit tiresome from the repetive nature of its difficulty at times and a mid-level checkpoint would work wonders to alleviate this conundrum.

VERDICT
"Volgarr the Viking" is tough as rusty, flaming nails and will surely cause some serious rage, especially since it could really use some mid-level checkpoints to help keep playing the same level you get stuck on (which in my case was most of the levels; seriously this is HARD) seem less repetitive. However, pretty tight controls, fun combat and platforming, mixed with manly viking tunes make this game a treat to anyone who can handle a truly difficult game that even puts some of its "old school tough" ancestors to shame.

OK well this game was not that hard, I am used to playing hard games, and this was not hard at all... I love retro games and I love a chalenge i.e I love Ghouls 'n' Ghosts... Ghouls 'n' Ghosts this is not.

Volgarr opens and its so freaking epic, then you try and jump and realise the controles are broken and stiff
You cannot steer yourself in the air as you can in a mario or metroidvania games for instance, the game is not hard just unfair with cheap deaths, crappy controle and slow as a snail movement.

However everything ellse is excelent, animations are awesome, music is cool, and the art style is rich with detail.
I hate to give negative reviews, but I will not blow smoke up this games cheap broken ♥♥♥.

I could have lived with no continues or save feature or password screen, that is 100% cool... even the cheap deaths also cool, but when your freaking hero cannot jump properly and the reason I died 97 times in a row is because of the jumping mechanic is broken, well that calls for a thumbs down.

No excuses for this, the only reason this game is hard is because of that stupid freaking jump, and I refuse to re-learn how to jump in a game because the devs thought it was funny.

This could have been such an awesome game, it's a shame a real shame... However if you are looking for something to make you pull out your nose hairs then this might be for you.

A hard-core retro-like platformer that is frustrating, but rewarding.

You've probably heard that this is a very difficult game. I will simply reiterate that: this game is VERY difficult. You may have noticed that I have five hours logged in this game. It's not very much time, but in most games, that would get you through a nice chunk of it. Not in Volgarr the Viking! All five hours I have logged are how long it took me to figure out, memorize, master, and beat the TUTORIAL STAGE.
I may sound pretty negative, so I want to say this: I really do like Volgarr the Viking. It's a well-made platformer. However, it will make even the most seasoned of platformer veterans rage at its ridiculous level of challenge. I would not reccomend this game to a casual gamer, but if you're REALLY good at platformers and want a challenge, give this game a shot.

Hard as balls in winter. This game has the unforgiving nature of games that came out for the NES or the SEGA. What i mean is that u progress little by little having to learn enemy partners and enemy layouts on the level before u can final complete the level kind of like when u first play a level in megaman. You have 1 life as u progress thro the level u can pick up armor that increases ur health by 1. Everything in this game wants u dead and it will more then likely take u multiple attempts and deaths to beat the first level and every level after that. The rage this game invokes is up there on the super meat boy levels. I only recommend this game to people who are dedicated players otherwise u will play get frustrated and prolly rage quit. That being said its not a bad game its a very good game but a very difficult game.

Most magnificent monster slaying viking action clearly inspired by ghosts 'n ghouls. Game is also hard as hell, I don't recommend if your nerves aren't made of steel and if you don't have the determination of an actual viking.
