IMG Reviews Cultures: Northland
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Cultures: Northland from Runesoft. In the game players build and manage a Viking settlement. Originally developed by Funatics Entertainment for Windows PCs, Cultures: Northland follows the story of a wandering band of Vikings, guided by a quartet of heroes.

Here's an excerpt:

How good is Cultures: Northland?

In this case it's best to start with how it's different from the alternatives. The primary difference is that each of the people in your village are unique. Each is either a male that can work or a female that tends the home when all the males are out working. The males are also distinct in that each one has a specific skillset that can be expanded through training or through just doing work around the village. This can be anything from a simple extractor gathering clay to a maker of fine furniture and enchanted jewelry for your warriors. As a result, you treasure your people much more in Northland. You don't want one of your strongest crafters dying because you didn't bother to put a defensive tower on their side of the village.
