Summary

Viking Fun from Germany

The Good

The possibility of slight role-playing makes this game more fun than expected.

The Bad

Some stupid bugs in the AI makes it a bit tiresome to play.

The Bottom Line

Northland starts where Cultures 2 ended. You lead a tribe of Viking settlers in their quest for survival. You will meet several mediaeval cultures on your way to establishing a Viking nation; some are interested in trade while others are only interested in domination. The gameplay reminds me a bit of The Settlers, only in this game you will actually follow your families and individuals through their lives. Well, to a certain extent, anyway. There is no deep role-playing but it is fun nevertheless. I would recommend it to those who like playing The Settlers and city-building games all the while being interested in a bit of history.
