10 PS3 games you forgot existed – from complete misfires to great games that just didn’t catch on

Viking: Battle For Asgard


Aaah, now you remember this gory hack and slasher! This is Asgard without the cuddly ‘I’m wearing a shelf on my shoulders’ Thor or any skipping happily along that delightful rainbow bridge. Mighty warrior Skarin is a head ripping, throat crushing, ribcage smashing hero questing to save the world from the hordes of hell. Button mashing and oodles of gore is the order of the day and while we all agreed it wasn’t awful upon release it has still managed to dwindle into the shadowy recesses of PlayStation consciousness. Possibly worth a revisit if you’ve got the stomach for the gore and five years ago’s graphical capabilities.
