Also wenn euch die Siedler gefallen haben und es euch schon immer aufgeregt hat, dass es keinen Nachfolger gab, müsst ihr unbedingt "Die Reise nach Nordland" kaufen und spielen. Das beste "Wusel-Adventure-Strategie"-Spiel was es derzeit auf dem Markt gibt.

Though Northland is essentially a real time strategy/city building game, it’s not much like the competition. The closest comparison to another game series would be Sierra’s City Building Series (of which only Caesar 3 was published for the Mac). Most of the game play focuses on feeding, employing, and sheltering your townsfolk. Unlike any similar game, you get into much greater detail and finer control, such as telling them where to live, when to get married, when to change jobs, and when to have children.

Northland isn't a bad game, it's just overwhelming with the detail and control you are given and the time you have to spend managing your village before you can start exploring the map and interacting with other villages. If the simulation aspect was toned down a bit and the RPG and real-time strategy aspects were given more attention and importance, I would have a better opinion of Northland. As Northland is now, it's best suited for people who really like simulation games with a lot of detail.
