This game is so good that I wrote a poem about it in the style of Seamus Heaney's translation of Beowulf, in a bid to entice one of my friends to give it a chance.
Men of courage! Listen to my challenge!
My name is known in the northern lands and beyond,
And my deeds are famed far and wide.
Volgarr I am, the most valiant of shield-bearers,
The adventurer and slayer of ancient gods.
Let this hall's strong pillars and hearty ale protect us
From the rain's cold water, and the howling wind,
As I stand proud and alone to tell my story.
Sea monsters I have slain, and giant serpents;
Winged beasts; howling barrow-men; bloodthirsty lizards.
My mighty muscles and quick mind protected me,
As they shall serve any of you who now support my cause.
Have courage, and use all your cunning,
and overcome the fear which first strikes all of us.
Those who doubt my deeds will feel my dagger -
Yet, those following my guide will know great glory.
It's also one of very few games to score higher than 10 on my personal rating scale, which is based on how many days it distracted me from Street Fighter 4. It's a good game!
