Product Description

Northland puts you in control of a young Viking hero, as you set off to save the world, while working to civilize your country!

From the Manufacturer

The story begins where the plot of "Cultures 2 - The Gates of Asgard" ended. After perilous adventures our four heroes defeated the Midgard serpent and thus saved the world. A great celebration began and everyone was happy and content. But everything has to come to an end sometime, and time to say farewell came faster than our friends wanted.

Hatschi, the brave Saracen, returned to his home village. Sigurd, the Frank hero, left the south and set for his way to beloved Franconia. Bjami and Crya, feeling more than just friendship for each other, returned back Byzantium to recover from the exertions of their adventure at the palace of Crya's father, the emperor of Byzantium.

But one day they were disturbed by a call for help from their friend Hatschi. Hatschi's homeland was plagued by mysterious monstrous serpent creatures, which spread chaos and destruction through the country. Without hesitation Byjami and Crya hurried to help him and stumbled right into a new adventure, in which the sly god Loki will play an important role...

Loki, known from the Nordic sagas as a versatile god of lies and weaver of many intrigues against his divine "colleagues", has been banned from Asgard by godfather Odin as a punishment for the trouble caused by the Midgard serpent. Now Loki is plotting revenge and searching for a possibility to sneak back into Asgard and pay Odin back.

Using the pseudonym Ykol he worms into the confidence of Hatschi and our heroes and accompany them on their adventurous quest. All the time he is weaving a tightening web of clandestine intrigues in which our heroes will get entangles unsuspectingly - until the whole truth is revealed at the end of the campaign and a final showdown takes place in Odin's throne chamber...

But before this, the serpent plague must be vanquished, a miraculous amulet must be created, Sigurd's people have to be relieved of the wolf demo Fenris and his evil hordes, and our heroes have to traverse the underworld, free the abducted Crya, blow a magic horn, thaw some frozen gods and release Odin from a charming spell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best game ever! October 2, 2003
By A Customer
Platform for Display:PC
I have only played the demo of Northland but I am an addict of its predecessors, Cultures and Cultures 2. It is the cutest, most fun city-building sims-style game around. It was never very popular in the US but its European success has led to them finally releasing another in the series over here. Download the demo from northland.com if you're interested, but I highly suggest buying it because once you start you won't want to stop!
Warning: time dissappears but you won't care

5.0 out of 5 stars Northland Funtastic! February 23, 2004
Platform for Display:PC
Northland is a fun filled adictive building/strategy game. Each viking is an individual and you have to get them to build a village, extract building material and provide food and homes. You assign jobs to each male viking and he will learn new skills by either working or going to schools. You can often trade your products for things you need. Create soldiers to fight anything from wolves to demons. You have choices as to how you want to play so the game is easily replayable. Some people feel that it takes too long to learn how to play it. Each game in the series builds and improves on the prior one but does not change the basic structure of the game. Once you know how to play one Cultures game you can easily play the next. I am addicted to the game and can play for hours.
My main complaints about the game are that the women do not have enought to do and although you can group the soldiers you cannot really form them into units (as in AoE or AoM).
If you liked Settlers you will love Northland. It is pure fun to play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game in the tradition of Servcity December 2, 2003
By A Customer

I have all the Cultures games and they are wonderful for gamers who are not into 'build thousands of soldiers and go kill everything in sight' action games. The pace is what you want it to make, from slow building to, yes, making soldiers and fighting fights. The graphics are cool, the story makes sense (mostly, grin) and the campaign gives the right mixture of tasks and action. There is one more in this series out in Germany and here's to hoping that we will see it in the U.S. as well. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game December 4, 2005
Platform for Display:PC
I do have to say it took me a while to figure everything out but I haven't been playing games for 10 years so that might expalin. having heard about civilization and shown Northland to people that have played Civilization and Age of empires, it seems to beat all of those. Personally I really enjoyed it. I think the directions can be a bit better (on how to give things to other groups, which is under the menu/window that shows the relationship status with other tribes). I think it's not just clever but also full of options. I soon learned that there is no need to have one woman/man to keep everyone happy (which makes it so that the women run out of work to do because there is so many of them). one woman/household is enough. so the more you play it, the more you learn the tricks. I just bought the sequal, the 8th wonders of the world so once I see how that is, I'll post up a review.
