The third installment in the Cultures series, Northland solves many of the problems that plagued previous versions. You nurse a tribe of Vikings, giving them orders to build up their settlement and assigning them to various tasks. Under your supervision, the villagers marry, have children, and advance in their professions. War can break out between your tribe and neighbors, but it's not an important part of the game. In terms of graphics, music, and interface, Northland is a bit outdated but still more than acceptable. You can now double or triple game speed, which marks a huge improvement over Cultures I and II. We also were pleased to find a step-by-step tutorial, which is easy to comprehend and helps you master the game s techniques. The demo's three missions should appeal to Sims adepts and fans of city-building games. One note: owners of some Radeon graphics cards have reported problems loading Northland.

Developer's Description

The story begins where the plot of "Cultures 2 - The Gates of Asgard" ended. After perilous adventures our four heroes, Hatschi, the brave Saracen, Sigurd, the Frank hero, Bjami and Crya, 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 the 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, and they spread chaos and destruction through the country. Without hesitation Bjami and Crya hurried to help him and stumbled right into a new adventure, in which the sly god Loki will play an important role.
