This is a top down action adventure in which you set out to kill gigantic norse gods. The atmosphere and variety of environemts to explore is fantastic and even if the combat mechanics feel a bit slow, the game is thoroughly enjoyable to explore and overcome. The boss fights especially feel like proper highlights that might require you to retry them a few times. Due to the constant new ideas in the levels, the game stays fresh throughout its runtime, despite having a relatively slow pace. Utterly fantastic to thoroughly sink into a different world if you are willing to let the games atmosphere sink its teeth into you. 4/5
