    Northgard is one of the prettiest titles in the genre, and with a very addicting gameplay loop, players are sure to spend several dozen hours to it.

    Northgard is a surprisingly great game. It will appeal both to fans of The Settlers series and to enthusiasts of multiplayer strategies. Additionally, it sounds nice, looks decent and it has a high replay value. Even the single-player campaign is well-made and interesting. Northgard is a great example of perfecting the use of Early Access.

    Northgard is a surprising, elegant RTS that's laden with a very dull story.

    Northgard is a must-play game for fans of the genre and could serve as a very good starting point for the newcomers who are just discovering RTS games for the first time.

    Veterans of the genre will love this mash-up, but newcomers will buckle under the weight. Writing aside, it’s a mighty fine attempt.

    Northgard can be a good replacement for The Settlers in the absence of a new part of the series.

    Northgard is a refreshing and pleasing experience, thanks to the elements it draws from RTS, 4X and even management games.

    Northgard is a great RTS
    The game main focus is on colonizing new territories and resources balancing, although you need to fight for almost every territory against creeps or other players.

    There are 11 clans, 5 of them are DLCs with most of the clans have same units.
    Mainly, the differences between the non-DLC clans is the bonuses and special abilities (some clans have unique units / buildings).
    The DLC clans are more different one from another and from the non-DLC clans, by having unique mechanisms like own resources, slaves, sacrifice system and etc.

    The game skirmish has a lot of customization options and with the maps being generated randomly (map starts undiscovered).
    There is only 1 campaign, shared by the 6 non-DLC clan, with a total of 11 missions.
    There is also a conquest campaign, where you choose a clan from all the 11 clans, and you have 11 missions, usually like skirmish but with special rules, and you get bonus for each mission (the maps are generated randomly).

    Really good RTS and I thoroughly enjoyed playing through the single player campaign - would happily purchase any single player campaign DLC.Really good RTS and I thoroughly enjoyed playing through the single player campaign - would happily purchase any single player campaign DLC.

    Felt a little different from a lot of RTS, in that expansion needs to be slow and steady for most of each mission.

    This game is okay, I got a good 15 hours of fun out of it before I started to see the holes that bothered me. I did enjoy the early rideThis game is okay, I got a good 15 hours of fun out of it before I started to see the holes that bothered me. I did enjoy the early ride though, I was quite hooked. It has some neat original mechanics and it's fun to master the concept.
    However after a while it wears on you because the story plot is garbage (dead father, save the world, zzz), the game constantly throws missions at you that are gimmicks that seem like betrayals because the game has taught you to play it one way, then with the gimmick you have to learn all over again. It feels like you have to hack the game concept several times over just to finish, which is never a good feeling and shows a bit of laaazy on the game designers part.
    Also, the worst part is after a while you really, really, really get the feeling you're just playing a Warcraft clone where the combat is no different than 1995.
    I think I got this on sale at GOG for like $8, I got enough play out of it for that value. Don't pay over $10 for this game.

    This has the makings of a good game but its odd ball attitude to developing land with restrictions like 3/3 buildings in a large area of landThis has the makings of a good game but its odd ball attitude to developing land with restrictions like 3/3 buildings in a large area of land where more buildings could be constructed makes it unreasonably and illogically hard to develop your settlement.

    I'm really at a loss to understand why game developers these days don't use common sense and apply the keep it simple rule. Being too clever can mean making a game un-enjoyable and frustrating. Such is the case here.

    Greedy microtransaction.
    Horribly unbalanced clans & Pay2Win.
    Excessively boring multiplayer. Overly simple mechanics. Grossly incompetent

    Grossly incompetent game developers who I found out literally lie to their players.
