M'eh -- I like Hero of the Kingdom better
This one is just an inferior copy. Hero of the Kingdom was fun, and a version 2 of that game would probably be better. This one just looked like it was a little rushed through, the animation a wee bit rough. The levels are challenging if you want to hit gold. I had to turn the music off and there was this one creepy sound effect that was either a congested heifer or a man groaning on his deathbed. Let me know if you figure it out. I still bought it and went through it, but wouldn't buy the Vikings 2.

This game did not compel me to buy. It offers no surprises. If this is the first Time Management game you buy, you'll probably be quite pleased, however, if you've played many before this is same game - different name.

Viking Brothers is OK But Needs Umph
I play quite a few of these type of games on a regular basis. Viking Brothers is alright, but a bit too elementary for my tastes. There isn't enough individual building projects to make it challenging. (Think Roads of Rome). Nice try though.

Not too bad, but not great
Nice little time management, "clear the road" game. Not exceptional but has some clever scenario twists. The story line is a bit weird and definitely has little to do with any real Vikings, but all in all, not a waste of money. I agree that the soundtrack is annoying however.

Kingdom Chronicles, Northern Tale & Island Tribe Mix
I'm gonna go against the grain, on this one - nothing original here - but if you like the three games I mentioned in the title, like I do, then it's worth the purchase because it's exactly like them :)
What took it down a notch for me, in comparison, was that the speed boosters are curiously not available on the levels at the end, which is when you need them most?
Which I found odd - why even introduce speed boosters idway through the game if you never use them again on more difficult tasks?
I suppose this is where they justify the "strategy" listing to this game, to figure out how to do the tasks and reserve enough resources, etc.
However, I found that even when I'd figured out how to complete the tasks by reserving enough resources during the time frame, I still could take 3 naps ,order a pizza and receive it by the time the workers finished all the checked tasks and won the game;)

I played a few minutes , then decided to buy..Too cute..But once it got started it was really hard to maintain the flow..the men moved way too slow..and the supplies were not very giving, and you needed to much to upgrade...all that being said .Fun , Fun , Game..I just decided to play it regardless of my color star..~!~
I hope they bring a Viking Brothers II
I normally play HOG's and such , but lately have found these games a lot of fun. loving the Ballard of Solar...~!~

Not For Me
Didn't like all the dialogue after I was in the game.

Ordinary graphics. Ghastly music. A storyline so uninspiring I've forgotten what it was already. Unoriginal gameplay. Agree with the Danish reviewer about the facts and history. We can all research the Internet, why can't the game developers take an hour or so to do their historical research?
