    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).

You assign different jobs to the workers and you can create a nice little game. It is also about surviving in harsh weather and fending off draugers. The game is a little slow though. Wish they had a fast version. Hope they continue to make additional titles or improve upon northgard if they ever make a second one. Expand

    Northgard looked pretty simple in that regard (in a good way), kind of what a strategy game would look like on a Nintendo switch.

    Well, the problem is that it's mostly about defending your base from wave after wave of enemies landing on your island. Even with the upgrade system, it gets tedious after a while without variety. Like for example you taking the fight to the enemy, or setting ambushes at sea. Overall, I didn't finish the game, it was fun for a short while, but if you are not much into the basic premise of the game, there isn't much else that will sustain the interest.

    Before buying this game, ask yourself - would you like to play the game that exists only for devs to squeeze it until the last coin you canBefore buying this game, ask yourself - would you like to play the game that exists only for devs to squeeze it until the last coin you can give to them? I don't mind it only if devs doing anything else except that. But this is the only reason why this game exist.
    How can I prove it to you? Easy! They have released an update in march which is broke game in many ways, some of bugs is still didn't fixed and what you think they did? They released a new clan! A new clan!!! Multiplayer is so POOR, you can't even block unwanted player from lobby! What am I about? You can't even see the players profile! Despite all of that they release a new clan!
    Some buttons in game are completely useless, like reports, youtube is full about cheats for this game, but devs will release a new clan to get more money from us, like there are no other problems in game and needs!

    Don't you dare to tell it to them! You must praise them! Otherwise they will angry at you and without any hesitation will tell you about too many bugs in game and that much time they spent all the time fixing those bugs, like it some kind of achievement. I don't know how old those boys are, but it doesn't seems like old enough, they actually ban those, who dares to criticize them.

    Obviously this game deserves a better devs team, game is good, but devs team barely understand what they doing. Each update delivers to the game more bugs and more weird changes, last update, for example, made trading with neutral fractions completely useless.

    This game will never evolve, because tasks that devs got are about getting rich, but not about deliver a good product.
    Every update delivers more bugs, would you like to play such game?

    Would I recommend this game to anyone? Hell no!
