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 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
