One of the best indie games, but the story mode is very short with just 11 chapters,

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.
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 is an excellent RTS. The Switch port has its shortcomings compared to the PC original, but portability makes the trade-off worthwhile. While I would have liked more map variety visually, the mechanics work well, and you’ll soon be focusing on the stats and not the graphics. With six unique clans and a variety of game modes, no fan of the genre should miss out on Northgard.
