Viking Squad, a beat ’em up in the vein of arcade classic side-scrolling brawlers like Legend and Double Dragon, sports perfect controller support, smooth animation, and a kickin’ soundtrack. Developer Slick Entertainment Inc. put a lot of work into making a good throwback arcade title that’s not just nostalgia-riffic, but also brings some new goodies to the mix: RPG stat progression, item shopping, and beautifully illustrated dialogue-free cut scenes. Plus, what would a quality beat ’em up game be without great local and online co-op? Not Viking Squad, that’s for sure.
