DHGF: While the mechanics of Northmark are solid, the surrounding package is underwhelming to say the least. The presentation is plain, the story is poorly written and predictable, the challenge isn’t there, and there is very little replay value. Still, it can be fun to play at times. As such, I’d recommend interested buyers either wait until there’s some sort of sale or they’ve got a free game coming to them from Big Fish before picking this up. As it is, it just isn’t worth the price of admission.
