Относно тази игра

A fantasy voyage through the great mythologies, Loki allows the player to take on the role of one of the four heroes of the game, each drawn from a different mythology: a mighty Norse fighter, a fierce Greek warrior, a powerful Egyptian magician or an Aztec shaman who masters the secrets of the spirit world.
Whatever hero the player adopts, he must come to the aid of the gods he worships. He will come to realize that behind the chaos that is threatening his world lies Seth, the Egyptian god of darkness and evil, who has returned from the kingdom of the dead.
The hero must therefore undertake an epic journey across the various epochs and myths. He will fight a multitude of monsters of all shapes and sizes, and even overthrow a few gods, on his way to preventing Seth establish his wicked reign.
  • An epic adventure across four great mythologies - Aztec, Egyptian, Greek and Norse - allowing the player to live through many of the key episodes that mark these cultures (the siege of Troy, Ragnarok, ......) and setting him in the path of the most prominent figures within each episode (Achilles, Thor, Akhenaton...)
  • Choose from four different heroes with radically different attributes and powers. Each hero has a vast array of spells and skills to help him through his quest.
  • More than 100 monsters of all shapes and sizes.
  • Dare to take on mythological creatures that struck fear into the hearts of our ancestors (Fenrir the giant wolf, the Minotaur in his labyrinth, ...)
  • Innumerable story lines through random generation of decors and items, so that nobody lives the same experience and allowing the game to be played many times without the hero ever having the same set of weapons, armour or spells.
  • Weapons, being made of two parts (loosely «handle» + «cutting edge») and from different materials, can be customised at the village forge to change characteristics. Magic runes, found along the way, can multiply a weapon's power.

They took an interesting idea, and while they didn't really succeed completely, they did somewhat well, if you can get past the kind of confusing skill system and the very linear combat system. The storyline eventually smashes all of the myths together, which induces some interesting questions. I haven't played it through too far in, but this is what I've noticed so far. It doesn't seem like this game is ever updated, or if it is, it isn't done very often, either.

LOKI has great story and nice female voice to descrive missions. And all tiny things are just right. For example, before you do anything while entering a map, those enemies never attack you. That is, they won't attack you until you move. It's importt or the attack while you r not ready will be very annoying.
Though the acts are dumb, that dumb way makes the gameplay fun. It makes you more "active" to play, also makes every fight more excited so that it doesn't bore me.

the map is divided in areas separated by load screens, and if you die(and you will), you dont lose anything but a little bit of time, for you'll respawn in the entrance of your current area.

combat is difficult and it takes quite a while to progress through areas if you plan on killing everything. or you can just rush to the next if you have enough potions, since there is no fog of war and a giant marker on the map pointing to the quest goal.

since you can choose whether or not monsters will respawn when you enter the game, you can progress as slowly as you can, killing a little bit at a time, which is great if you cant play for 2-3h in a row.

all and all, if you ever see it on a 75% sale, its worth trying. wont be as good as torchlight, diablo or titanquest, but might give you some hours of fun.

Loki: Heroes of Mythology is a hack & slash RPG. The Norse God of Mischief is on the loose across the world, so local heroes must each travel across their lands and help their own Gods safeguard the world.

Pros: This game has plenty of dungeon crawling. With each of the four characters, you have an entire campaign set in a different part of the world, interacting with different Gods and different enemies and creatures. There is a large variety of weapons and armors, and different levels of rarity very similar to the Diablo series. Graphics are ok if you're zoomed out, and you heal quickly enough when idle that you can jump right back into action after a few seconds of rest.

Cons: The game is basic, story is bland and so is the voice-acting. Crafting is pretty good, or at least it would be if it was of any use: Why would you disassemble your Two-Handed Hammer's magical handle if you'll throw it away as soon as you start getting the Spiked Hammer a few levels later? Why would you recycle for material your old weapons and armor if you can't even sell the material, which will be outdated as soon as better material becomes standard a few levels later? The game lags terribly whenever you're walking along an invisible wall (whether a ledge or an actual wall). Game gets quite repetitive after a while. You'll find equipment for classes other than your own (example: finding an Aztec Shaman armor while playing the Norse Campaign), which doesn't make sense seeing you can't transfer inventory between the different characters, and the characters will never set foot in the other campaign settings. The advertisement in Steam would have you believe this plays in 3rd person mode, but you actually play in isometric view (image #11 is the only accurate representation of the game).

Verdict: ★★★☆☆ - It's up to you

It's an ok game. I'd even say Loki: Heroes of Mythology is a great way to just get the hack & slash crave out of the way when you're done with other Diablo clones. Unfortunately, that's as far as I'll recommend it, as the lack of intriguing story or puzzle (of any form) prevents it from being more than that.

Loki is an isometric perspective action role playing game. There are different classes to play each entrenched in one of four mythologies; Norse, Greek, Egyptian or Aztec.

Character controls and the interface are functional, but lack polish and feel.

Individual enemies are extremely well drawn and animated.

The terrain feels blocky and awkward, almost as if it was an afterthought.

There is no smooth transition between zones, and the zones are all square tiles with portals linking neighbouring zones. Moving between one square tile zone and the next brings up a loading screen.

The game balance in early game is among the worst I have ever experienced. Your character will keep dying and respawning at the zone entrance.

Loki has a nice design concept which has been extremely poorly implemented. This is a lack-lustre attempt to create a "me too" game to cash in on the Diablo / Diablo 2 franchise success. The quests, storyline and mythology are the strong points, but these are let down by poor gameplay mechanics and lack of balance.

As an alternative consider playing any of the ARPG games in the Blizzard franchise (Diablo, Diablo 2, Diablo 3) or consider Titan Quest and it's add-on Immortal throne. Sacred and Sacred 2 are also alternatives worth consideration. Other alternatives include Spellforce, Spellforce 2, Dungeon Siege, Dungeon Siege 2.

Loki is not a bad game, but it lacks much of the finesse, polish and playability of the top games in this genre current at the time of its release. In other words Loki is not to be considered a good game, but rather a mediocre attempt to imitate games that are good. That said, Loki is not the worst game in this genre, but certainly could be contrived as making a half-hearted attempt at achieving that accolade.

Worth picking up when it is on sale at good discount, but Loki is not a game you will be tempted to re-play too often or remember with fond nostalgia.

4/10
