Summary: Poorly written, poorly executed. Tried to like it but couldn't. I love the original and couldn't play this one. Several scenarios ended because lions killed all my CGI opponents within the first 10 minutes. I win?? When I tried to uninstall it it refused. I had to do a system restore just to remove it and reinstall the old Crusader because it is not compatible with the original Stronghold Crusader.
Summary: This is one of the worst games I've ever played. To me, there seems to be absolutely no way to win. Previous to this game, I had played Stronghold 2. While it was difficult at times, there was at least a chance to win. Not so with this game. The game is limiting. There are two modes. Free mode (with only the ability to fight) and campaign mode. I tried both and gave up on both. In the campaign mode, you open with at a level with one competitor.
Summary: This game has a few fatal flaws that make it inferior to the crusader warchest edition: #1 Reduction of video/audio quality (I mean A LOT). #2 Immobile AI (they don't make units, or use any of the bonus powers). #3 More annoying "click screens" (two to be exact -- which is 4 in total I think). #4 Multiplayer is WAY TOO slow (and this is with ETHERNET folks). #5 Cannot play the original crusader maps in extreme (yep, they even thought it needful to include LESS maps)...
Summary: I tried to load this program and kept getting error messages. Took the computer and program into the professional computer shop. Not one of the three techs there could get it to load without scattering the files all over the computer. They assured me that the program was at fault, not my computer. I would like to return this program for a refund of my money!!Please send my the information I need to return this program.
Summary: The game is the same ole Stronghold Crusader with very little change. Added on a differant mode but it's a mode that's the same as the previous game but mainly just a harder level of play. The add ons they talk about in the game were added on in the war chest versian and they make sound like it's brand new; it's not. Definately not worth buying.
Excerpt: autant, j'ai joué et je joue encore à stronghold et stronghod crusader. mais là, pas d'interêt. car même avec une nouveau d'attaque, il n'y a pas de mission suppléméntaire ou de lieu interessant ou des nouveaux moyens de contruction.
