Not terribly. It's been a while since I did Old Icelandic... It has got the same four cases the other Gmc languages have (NGDA), the same basic tenses (past/nonpast) and verbal system as I recall (different aux. vbs to take care of things similar to ours). Like other Scandinavian languages, it postposes the article. It's phonology is interesting and if I had Gordon to hand, I could describe it better.
