Inspired by the apocalyptic Norse myth of Ragnarök, this sequel to Cultures puts players in the role of Bjarni, a Viking who is faced with the premonition of an epic battle between Good and Evil. Hoping to hold off the end of the world, Bjarni sets out on a journey across half of Europe. Along the way, a brave Franconian, a technologically gifted Byzantine, and a mystical Saracen join him in his quest, which will ultimately lead them to the evil Midgard Serpent.
A comprehensive tutorial mode includes systematic introductions to the game as well as its features, to help players start off on the right foot. Each of the four heroes has a distinct look and unique ability, useful not only in battle but also in adventure-puzzle problem solving. The game's AI has also been improved over that of its predecessor, apparent in the behavior of the allied villagers as well as members of other tribes. Multiplayer gaming is supported through a local area network or Internet connection. ~ Damian Francis, All Game Guide
