Good review. I'd give it maybe 2 stars. It has some obvious plot errors. For example my war chief was kidnapped on a shoreline (a very implausible scene imo) and I gave himself up to the kidnappers to try to win his freedom. But later during my captivity he showed up plotting my demise and saying that I betrayed him. Wha-wha-what? I sacrificed myself so he could be free.

There are a lot of really implausible plot events. Many kidnappings and other shenanigans.

I thought the game would be about leading a tribe but it turned into a wild caper book.

Didn't satisfy at all and I couldn't finish it.

"...vaguely Norse-sounding names", really?
Those are authentic Slavic gods.

Oh. Sorry. I didn't mean to offend. In just assumed that since it was fantasy their names were just made.
