Summary: My only experience with Stronghold prior to this was with the original version. #2 is more of a challenge for sure, but it does have bugs which are annoying. I frequently find the torturers quit working, prisoners continue to languish in the jail and nothing I've tried will remedy the problem. All in all it's a good game and I'm glad I purchased it.
Summary: This product has many innovations and new concepts over the original and its expansion. The intricate lord and honor system adds new depth. When I first borrowed this game from my library, it would hardly run on my computer, meaning this isn't a game for an old system or one with a faint of heart graphic card. Aside from its technical requirements, the 3d graphics look their age, but not as good as, comparable games of the time.
Summary: This game is great. It runs fine on my system. I have a AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ @ 2.4 Ghz, Onboard Geforce 6150se (not the greatest) with 128mb, and Windows Vista Home Premium. Runs like a champ. Its alot harder than Crusader by a long shot. If you have played crusader then you know its not so much about the castle and more about killing people. In this one its seems more about your castle.
Summary: This game was amazing! What's better than having a army and fighting during the medieval era! Campaign is great, skirmish has also unlimited possibilities! And you can create your own map that you can customize. You can also download maps from multiplayer online! Runs great on my windows computer. Overall this is one of my favorite games!
Not as bad when I came back to it a year or two later enjoyed it a lot more

Summary: a lot of people even myself found stronghold to had a different taste to it having to literally cart resources from area to area the first time I played it I was lost by the second mission but after a few years I came back to it and found it quite a pleasant play even with the more added food sources and extra units that some people felt were a little bit too much I found nice and relaxing once I got into the feel of the game so if you didn't like it the first time...
