    Review: Expeditions: Viking
    Nordic by nature.

    The clue's in the name. No, not the Viking bit. Though it does accurately describe the amount of beards and longships awaiting you. It's the other bit, the bit before the colon.
    Expeditions is the name of the series which began a few years back with Expeditions: Conquistador. Both games lean heavily into ideas of travel, of trekking to new places and returning home, of time passing. This is the kind of RPG that's less about quests and more about journeys.

    [...]

    From the outset your goal isn't to embark on a quest to save the world; rather you must prove yourself a worthy leader, navigate political instability and earn the respect of your people. This journey takes you all over northern Europe, but you keep returning to your home. Every time you do, you chat to your family and friends and realise how far you've come.

    Score: 8/10 - A deep tactical - and strategic - RPG.​
