Northgard is a fantastic, well put together title. I found it to be challenging enough to keep me at it, but not over the top and unbalanced. Vikings conquering, smashing, and crushing enemies is a lot of fun! Get this game if you're an RTS fan, it's a must-have.
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 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 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.
Northgard is a gem of a real-time strategy game and a marvel to play thanks to its exquisite art style, magnificent handheld experience, immensely long lifespan and the myriad of details and elements that form the whole game. A truly remarkable work that's set to capture the attention of fans of RTS and of anyone who enjoys lengthy, engaging and ambitious experiences.

Northgard is a good and different RTS, that brings back the memory to The Settlers series. It has few mechanics, but all works well.

All in all, it has to be said that Northgard is an extremely promising premise. It has a good storyline with challenging campaigns. While there are some minor hiccups here and there, overall, it's an awesome addition to the RTS genre.
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.
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.
