A battle-slain warrior, the Valkyries have ferried your soul to Valheim, the tenth Norse world. Besieged by creatures of chaos and ancient enemies of the gods, you are the newest custodian of the primordial purgatory, tasked with slaying Odin’s ancient rivals and bringing order to Valheim. Your trials begin at the disarmingly peaceful centre of Valheim, but the gods reward the brave and glory awaits. Venture forth through imposing forests and snow-capped mountains, explore and harvest more valuable materials to craft deadlier weapons, sturdier armor, viking strongholds and outposts. Build a mighty longship and sail the great oceans in search of exotic lands … but be wary of sailing too far... Key features: Huge procedurally-generated world - explore and inhabit mystical lands, from mysteriousforests to imposing snow-topped mountain ranges and stunning meadows, complete with their own creatures of legend to battle and wildlife to hunt. Co-op PvE (2-10 players) - - Whether you want to brave the lands alone or venture with trusted allies, Valheim supports independent, player-hosted servers and unlimited world creation. We recommend playing co-op with 3-5 players. Punishing dodge & block based combat system with a wide range of weapons Build & sail ships - from flimsy rafts to imposing warships, build legendary vessels to conquer the seas and discover new lands.

Valheim provides an excellent creative outlet. You get to explore, craft, build, and play 'your' way in a visually pleasing environment. In addition, it is an excellent platform for playing with a group of friends. I can't think of any other game that accomplishes all of these things so harmoniously. It does this while occupying less than 2 gigs of storage space on your computer.
I will add that the pace of development has been dreadfully slow. A little slow compared to the typical development speed of similar games, and catastrophically slow compared to the developers' original ambitions.
All told, I have to recommend this game, given all of the entertainment it provided me. There are a couple caveats to my recommendation. The first is that you should wait to play it. The development is slow, and I think most people will be done playing the game before they ever see meaningful new content. The second is that you should definitely play with a group of friends. It is a big, lonely world if you are the only Viking on the map. Thank you to whoever reads my review, and happy gaming!

I really like Valheim, I have ran a server and played with my adult children for hours , months . We have built entire villages, castles and ports. We have waited for so long for the Mist Lands updates and sadly moved on to different games.

This is, simply put, what I always wanted Minecraft to be. I played MC on and off for over ten years and generally, you get over that sense of impending danger, and bases built with teamwork don't feel that fulfilling.
Valheim fixes all that. Real physics, real combat, real skill levelling (use it to improve it), real teamwork, but most importantly, real danger.
I love it.

I only have 2 big problems with the game, is its been 2 years with no extensive content updates, and the discord mods are a bunch of losers.

Bought the game thinking I'll be a viking, I ended up being a carpenter.

You're a viking. You club lil gremlins and slay gods. Also, gardening. 10/10 recommend.
