Nothing constructive, just some thoughts about what I got from this novel.

It's mildly contradictive, inconsistent, simple minded, very shallow (and I'm not even a fun of 'deep' novels).

Also every major battle seems to hold a 'piano in the bush'. MC levels up too fast, somehow keeps winning against opponents good few times stronger than him.

On the bright side:

Characters are okay, it's generally fun to read

A greatly enjoyable series! I will try to keep this review short so it won't overwhelm you, but there is certainly much to say. Simply putting however, I highly recommend reading this for something different than your typical fantasy novel. Many of the warriors in the beginning are basically muscle heads. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing, as it is executed well enough, and somewhat to be expected seeing as how Valhalla is where all the greatest warriors are sent. They are exceptionally enthusiastic about anything Valhalla, regardless... more>> of if they know what it is or not. Comedic minor spoiler of an example on that below.

Spoiler

An example from an early chapter "you shall be taking the rain of steel!" To which all the warriors would shout like Ou! Valhalla! Or rain of steel! While knowing absolutely nothing about what it is. Our MC asked what it was, the response was "I also don't know, but doesn't it sound amazing!?" Can you guess what it is? Its an alcohol barrel stuck onto a long steel pole which basically shot them like a ballista! I absolutely lost it at that point, it was too hilarious!

[collapse]

There is more to the series than just Valhalla, as there are 8 other worlds, 3 of which (Valhalla included) are the front lines in the war against the enemies of the 9 worlds. There do seem to be some harem elements involved, but in what I find to be the most hilarious ways possible. Nothing excessive, just a nice addition. Oh and the hilarious titles the fellow warriors give the MC are the best, even with all the impressive feats the MC accomplishes it always returns to his most embarrassing ones. Which have escalated from The one who meets Valkyries, The one who rode a Valkyrie *insert my man joke*, and my favorite which I believe was from a comment "The one who plays with Valkyries." Do note however they are mostly done in playful banter, jealousy and envy are a minor part in there as well (in a "you lucky bastard" kind of way), but its mostly respect and comradery.

I do have some gripes with the series, such as the pacing. Not to say its bad exactly, but many of the chapters up until about v20 basically feel like one battle after another, with some small of transitional periods to the next major battle and feats, it was however a very chaotic initial period due to an invasion. Story timetable-wise however it makes sense since one chapter outlines that all of the events from those several battles had taken place in a span of 10 days in some smaller battlefields of a war, note however that is from a chapter prior to the one as of this review. It is only around this point and onward we actually see some more slice of life chapter or scenes, one of which even made a big time jump of 3 months (or at least big compared to previous time pacing.) This is a great thing as it both establishes more of the world building and cool downs between major events.

All in all, an enjoyable story. Filled with plenty of action, some nice comedic bits, some nice characters with some depth (though not revealing much just yet) and some unique takes in a few aspects that can prove to be a nice refreshing change of pace for many.

Last spoiler that will be intentionally vague, because that is how good a moment it is. That even in a spoiler it shouldn't be completely spoiled!

Spoiler

We should have seen it coming, but it was completely unexpected. I laughed so much! You will know when you see it

Honestly all I can say is that it's decent, it's a story of a gamer sent to a world of warriors who are a bit lacking in common sense and only knows how to fight without caring for their lives, praising the names of Gods like blind believers.

There is no real depth in the characters, the plot is straightforward with logic urks occasionally. Only read it if you have nothing else to read and want some 'snacks' to munch on, basically imo it's overpraised, overhyped and overrated but all in... more>> all it is still better than some (most) of the top ranking novels here which are complete garbage, at least, this is readable.

And probably the fact that it's KR helps, with all those KR praise-boys everywhere, if this was released in let's say, a year or two it would prob be nothing special. <<less

I can only say this (PROMISING).

... more>>
Spoiler

The system goes like these:

There are Magic, Runes and the typical cheat that a novel need to differ from others SAGE.

Until now there's not magic or rune explanation only SAGE and sage explanation is that it a kind of Magic (mythical thing) that is developed depending on what were you doing or achievement you got in live, since our MC is a Pro G** I mean Pro-Gamer with a really good Avatar (Kalsted a warrior type avatar with the blood of a dragon) with many histories going around his avatar that have so many fans that where crying, panicking and laughing at him, probably because of that he developed his SAGE named (Immortal Warrior) and was picked by a Valkyrie and bring to ASGARD!!!!!!

I'm reading chapter 3.2 and so far is really good, cause is not overly saturated with created fantasy things, well, in the form that is based on Valhalla and Asgard etc. Etc..

(Sorry if you do not understand my review, I speak Spanish and I'm not confident in my written English)

The Development of the characters are stable and not fast faced. The MC isn't really Overpowered that much and for me is balanced. The story as of now is Good but it's still early for me to judge it :) :) But overall its Novel is really Promising

Have only read whats been translated but already loving it and potentially one of my favorites. Has some light comedy in it but also interesting action scenes and MC seems quite calm and collected. More importantly, MC is strong and has insane potential but hes not cheat level OP right at the start which is nice as we get to see him get stronger. Potential romance I think? If it is then im looking foward to it if done right which so far its fine. Also fair bit of world... more>> building as you get some general information at the start about wheres hes at and places around him which a lot of novels fail to do. I feel that once he gets strong he'll be tasked with more important things and plot will thicken and become 3x better since right now hes still learning and improving his saga. Big thanks to translator for picking this up and hopefully author doesnt screw this up by falling to usual cliches that 90% of novels have (MC f** everything he sees, arrogant as f**, doing stupid sh**, or whining 24/7) <<less

It's a bit too early to give a full review so I will give a simple and short introduction of what I've read so far. The MC is a pro gamer, who died while playing in some kind of Tournament, afterwards he finds himself in a hall surrounded by warriors where the story starts, afterwards the story continues on a battlefield where he has to beat monsters to get stronger, how does a useless gamer do it? Of course by merging with his game character. The system is pretty interesting,... more>> he doesn't get skills like in other games, but "Saga's", basically a "buff" from something he achieved. Hard to explain without spoilering anything so just read it yourself :p

Overall it's a bit refreshing and the style of the novel is pretty good, overcome the first 2 chapters (they are a bit confusing and it's not that good or special, so you may think it's the normal MC reincarnated stuff, but it is different in a good way :3) afterwards it gets really interesting, so I simply recommend this novel to everyone who likes good reincarnation novels and new stuff:) <<less

2.5/5 mediocre at best. Below average time waster.

Rpg gamer becomes his character at lvl 1 in a war. The MC comes to terms with it and fits in immediately at ch.1 and begins grinding levels. There is nothing to this novel but grinding for xp against mobs, and creating new skills once for each boss fight. There is absolutely no substance to this story. There is the occasional beauty he interacts with, otherwise there are no side characters. All the other characters are one dimensional idiots cut from the same... more>> mold. I stuck it out for much longer than I thought I could, but I’ve dropped it. Even as a filler this is barely tolerable. It’s only saving grace is the only moderate amount of repetition.

Tldr. Mindless rpg grinding, don’t expect anything more. <<less

The start is great. A very very promising novel. Its a bit early but I like the MC seems to be not the typical all knowing trope of Korean MCs.

No time travel. Not inside the game = a good KR novel

The best web novel with norse mythology I have ever read. If you like norse mythology, you will like this novel.

Keep in mind, most of the characters are norse warriors and the culture follows suite. Don't go into this novel expecting a korean lore or feel.

The premise was interesting and the beginning kept me reading but it degenerates into a typical harem/ power-up story. As the story shifts to him collecting women everything else falls to the background. The interesting mysteries and storyline which initially drew me in fades as the author decides to focus on fanservice rather than actual plot and story. I kept reading, hoping it would get better again but nope. My interest is pretty much gone now. Some day I might read more but but the interest that drove me to... more>> dive in at the beginning is completely gone now. <<less

Brings to mind an old Korean novel when I read this novel; Breakers. It's very basic and stereotypical of the old Korean light novel format.

There's this side, the good guys, and there's that side, the bad guys.

A bit of intrigue sprinkled in, but typically what you see is what you get. Novice comes in, gets stronger > gets rewarded > promptly gets shipped off to another quest > gets rewarded > gets shipped off again.

Rinse and repeat with plenty of girls interacting with him and getting interested before there's a... more>> very sizable harem sitting around with maybe one or two clear cut winner-to-be's.

Eventually gets strong enough to reach God-like levels and most battles at that point tend to blur into a bunch of words where skill upon skill upon passive upon passive stacks up and I just ignore it because I'm pretty much only interested in the character interactions that come after.

That said, my review isn't negative. Even though the story is basic, it is written in an attractive manner to offset its cliche template and sometimes thats all a story really needs to shine. <<less

One of the best webnovels I’ve read and one of the few deserving of 5 stars. There’s actually a reason for the existence of his cheat and it was earned rather than given. Fighting is good. Comedy is golden. No harems so far and girls don’t fall upon meet. The women have interest in the MC but it seems more professional to strengthen their group rather than romance. At most they joke but only one girl seems to genuinely have feelings for him. Overall I highly recommend trying it for... more>> fhose who like strong MC, good fights, and norse mythology, Plus superiors are actually decent people and not cowardly scum which was a definite plus. <<less

To be honest I am a little disappointed.

The story started pretty good and it is an interesting concept, but it rapidly developes into a generic MC gets rapidly stronger plot with slight hints of a harem.

At least his plot armor got an explanation:
Spoiler

it is the blessing of his goddess

So far so good, it has a good story pacing and you could also see a good world background here. Although it has a fast paced action you could still enjoy reading due to the fact that it has no unnecessary elements including in it.

hmmm well I hope I could write more details on this review but the chapters are still not that much so bear with this one. All in all I could see a good and promising novel on this one

Great Novel! If you are looking for great action scenes, interesting world and power system, this is it. Though characters are not faceless and have some unique personalities of their own, it is not deeply explored (that said there are not many action novels online where that's explored deeply). This is a pure action, fantasy novel with some small amount of romance and it does not try to be anything else (and I do not mind). I would choose this over most of the action novels on this website.

It's a fun story to read, but everything's pretty simple. As expected of Valhalla. *insert jiong here*

MC becomes OP quickly, but he still has restrictions. I feel... that the MC plot armor is going strong though. Maybe.

It could kinda be a harem? Eh, the MC seems to only 'like' one girl, but there are lots that wouldn't mind some attention from him.

The fights and setting are super interesting! Some of the best things in the novel. The MC's personality doesn't really stand out compared to other novels, but he's not... more>> annoying or dumb. Whew.

Sometimes, the hype is really awesome and the comedy cracks me up. The highlights are great. The story seems focused on the MC, but sometimes side characters get brief moments. <<less

Almost every review of this novel is wrong, don't trust any (except the one the one made by eribannen).

They all talk about the beauties that are on the novel, but they are making various errors, valkyries in mithology are known for being from an almost on the same level or more beautiful that the goddess of beauty, so the ones saying that there are too many beauties is wrong are the ones in the wrong, also the female warriors that appears and is a beauty (the MC is unninterested in... more>> her love and she also think of him as a friend and a comrade in arm), she is a beauty not by being one (only) but also thanks to her training, she use her agility and tho fighr in her best she need to have an small frame and thin (not really thin but by having less fat percentage gives her more mobility).

They talk about the op power... first of all, almost all the saga, the origin of their power isn't really based on what powers they had or what they where born, but instead but, by what they did and their fame, the stories that where told about what they did while they where alive, to put it simple, if someone killed a beast known by his strength, they could get a saga that talked about that, and the saga would give him more strength when using it... but the problem is that the stories not everytime is told as they were, someone could have overpowered a gigant lizard but ended with a story abou overpowering a dragon and he would get the strength to overpower a dragon, in other words is op. But there are others sagas, the ones that told the story of someone, these sagas are stronger than the normal ones like our MC, also known as the "Inmortal warrior", that told many stories that were told while he was alive, as a gamer he physically didn't do any of these, but the stories were told of what he did, what he had and what he could do as his game character, because it was his story not from anyone. But he isn't the only cheat character, for example, bracky, another comrade in arms, he is known as the son "of a god", his strength and resistance is brutal, he could summon the thunder of Thor, and also he can restore his body without any inconvenience, in other words heal to 100% with 100% of his stamina one time every day, in other words really op and he isn't the only one who is op.

The story? I would say awesome but that wouldn't be enought, everything happens in the same line, there is a growth of the characters, the new powers aren't something of the moment like what happens in most stories that includes growth, the MC isn't some annoying dude thay only think with his lower head, nothing plain, every character has their own personalities that made them unique. <<less

Korean novel and mythologies, with a basis in norse mythology and some celtic myths.

The MC has just one love interest even when he interacts with goddess and valkyries AND there is a slow progress with her as the history goes.

Some side characters show personalities but the novel focus in fights and missions, giving little time to reveal more of them outside of combat. Also, most people are well know brave (thickhead) warriors that died in battle (required to go to Valhalla), something that gives the author some leeway to focus... more>> in few like Bracky and Siri.

The warriors in Valhalla have missions constantly regardless of their number, which gives a sense of urgency in the novel. This is more so for the MC because his fast grow and prospects makes him stand out and be forced to more important missions and battles, which in exchange makes him stronger and make him have more missions.

As the novel progress, more relevant backgrounds plot is reveled and the reader makes a more clear and wider mental image of the world around Valhalla Saga.

I personally think is a good online novel. <<less

This is really good!

The writing is solid, MC's improvement is also great, and most importantly, it's not boring at all even though there are only battles until now.

There's not much of world-building since it's always a battlefield. But I believe that it's only because it's still early.

Definitely has extremely good potential. You just need to read 1 or 2 chapters to see the potential and type of story this could be.

So far no generic cliche thing is found, which is very good. I have big hopes for this one.

It's okay. Typical pro gamer is badass in another world thing, except the twist is that it heavily tries to borrow from Nordic mythos without understanding it. It may be my own personal gripe, but I just can't believe some weak in the knees gamer who never actually risked his life would end up in Valhalla, let alone be the hero. It really stretches the concept of being a warrior. (Nords would roll over in their graves reading this) but I am a mythology nerd who respects old beliefs so...... more>> It might not bother 99% of you. It gets under my skin though. <<less
