Overall, Northgard is a wonderful strategy game despite its shortcomings. The rough edges can make it tough for newcomers to the genre to get invested, but if you're a fan of strategy games or able to tough it out through the warts until everything clicks, then you're in for a treat. The Switch is a natural fit for the 4X genre, and Northgard is a prime example of the potential that this style of strategy game can have outside the PC ecosystem.

While Ragnarok brings a lot of interesting new elements to Northgard, the update ultimately feels like somewhat of a mixed bag.

With Northgard, Shiro Games has already proven on PC that they have created a fun and long-term, entertaining strategy game with the Vikings from the far north. The port to the switch was also successful, although a few minor flaws cloud the overall impression. In particular, I found the small font size exhausting in the long run, hopefully an adjustment of the size will be patched here, or at least a setting in which you can set it yourself. In terms of gameplay itself, there is little else to complain about, so that genre fans can look forward to a successful representative of the development strategy.

Northgard is an accessible strategy game on consoles, and that in and of itself makes it appealing for those who might be new to the genre. The brightly colored visuals are appealing, even if the rest of the presentation is relatively average, but where Northgard really starts to shine is in its surprisingly depth of strategy the longer your session runs. Weather, different clans and a variety of ways to claim victory help to make for varied, entertaining sessions well worth a play.

If you've enjoyed games like Warcraft, The Settlers, Civilization, or Age of Empires you can find a home here with these Norsemen. However, it's not the most welcoming game for newcomers to the genre.

The Switch port has its shortcomings compared to the PC original, but portability makes the trade-off worthwhile.

Northgard isn't a perfect successor to The Settlers series, but thanks to its gripping single player campaign and well-done multiplayer with balanced factions, it deserves your attention.

Northgard takes some of the best elements of your favourite old RTS games and breathes life into them with an economic management twist. A tighter campaign would launch this into greatness.

Northgard is a very polished game. The controls are intuitive, the gameplay is fluent and it's great both in singleplayer and multiplayer.

This is a RTS that doesn’t focus as heavily on combat. It’s more of a worker placement game, which produces a different feel, and slower gameplay, but is interesting for most of the time.
