    Northmark is not a terrible game, but it's not a great one either. For every tactically thrilling fight or interesting side quest, there's a dull slog-fest and excruciating piece of dialogue to put up with first. The developer has the technical aspects down fine, but could have improved the experience greatly by hiring a professional writer and spending a bit more time varying and balancing the card effects.
