Review: Expeditions: Viking

Most people have a lot of misconceptions about history and historical facts, and it seems like they’re likeliest to mix up the details on the ancient Vikings. Tons of films and games have tackled the subject, but a lot of them go for a more Hollywood version of the story. That’s why I was excited to see Expeditions: Vikings.  The game purported to have a realistic, grounded portrayal of the Vikings in an engaging strategy game. Did they pull it off? Let’s find out. Brilliantly enthralling storytelling meets tight gameplay with a historical setting that teeters on the edge of realism and mythological symbolism, all while remaining grounded in reality.
