Farm Frenzy: Viking Heroes
Well where do i start with this awful game.... normally i have only positive things to say about a game... but this one ... DONT BUY IT... this game is a con to buy...it says there are 172 levels....when in fact you cant play HALF of them ... i've managed to get to level 72 ... this game started off so fast i could hardly keep up...then it got slower and slower and slower ... now its almost at STOP .... ONE second in game time its actually 2 minutes in real time... its so slow its almost going backwards
Do i recommend this game... NOOOOOOOO
between each game is a stupid little man on a bike with a hot air baloon .... he can reload and reload this game 5 times before you can actually play the game.... this game is a con and an absolute waste of money!!!!!!!!!!!
out of 10 i give this game a -10 thats minus 10!!!!!!!

It now only takes bicycle ballooner one trip across. Sound quality is fine but the actual sounds are very annoying. Pay attention to details or you will have to try again! Use the trial and decide for your self.

Love this game!
It's like 5 games in one. It's the best of the Farm Frenzy games! It does load slowly (probably because of how clean the graphics are) but it's definitely worth the wait!

It's the best farm-frenzy game series.

This game is awful
Not only does it take ages to load but it is really dull.
At least, the first two levels are. I couldn't play any more cos it wouldn't let me out of the shop.
Really don't bother with this game

It's a shame first impressions have hurt the reputation of this game...
When I first played the demo, I had the same problem many others have complained about: the load screens were excrutiatingly slow. But I bought it anyway, because I got it with a coupon for cheap, and despite the slow screens I had enjoyed the novelty of making swords and spears instead of cakes and dresses. (It probably didn't hurt to have the Norse/Viking theme to attract me to it#.
Anyway, whatever the problem was with the loading screens, it seems to have disappeared between the time I played the demo and the time I bought it, because it doesn't load slowly anymore.
In fact, it now loads faster than the typical Farm Frenzy game does, for me at least.
So now I'm playing it #I haven't finished it yet, and I seem to be pretty far from finishing - there's no map to show your progress#, and it's actually become my favorite Farm Frenzy game.
A couple of little things I like that are improvements over some of the earlier Farm Frenzy games: you can click on the warehouse to see its exact contents, even when your vehicle is away, and the buildings display the number of products it will produce #1-5# without having to hover with your mouse. I also like that on some levels, you can upgrade your animals to make them unaffected by predators and produce more product #you can only upgrade your animals on levels where they give you a 'training hut' to turn them into 'battle' animals#.
I'm finding that it's been just a little bit easier on this game for me to achieve silver and gold #not too easy though# than on other Farm Frenzys. But whether that's because the game is actually slightly easier, or just because I'm getting better at these games the more I play them, I'm not sure. I know the levels I played in the demo didn't strike me as all that easy, so maybe it's the latter.
I love the graphics in this game and there are some fun surprises in later levels that I won't spoil. But don't let the low ratings and reviews about its 'unplayability' - formerly accurate - deter you. I think they fixed the problem, and now the game is as good as any other Farm Frenzy game - maybe even better, depending on your taste. If you like Farm Frenzy games, at least give this one a chance, play the demo.
Sorry for the long-winded review but I really wanted to defend this one because I think it's a great game.
