Stronghold Crusader

Game Over Online
6 December 2015
  • Excerpt: The Gathering of Developers web site calls Stronghold aCrusader the “successor” to last year’s castle building sim, Stronghold .

Stronghold Crusader 2: Special Edition Review – PC/Steam

Game Chronicles
26 December 2014
  • Excerpt: There’s always something about the Real Time Strategy genre that keeps drawing in every time. This is surprising due to the fact that I’m not really good at them. I’ve played everything from StarCraft to Age of Mythology and C&C over the years including the ultimate in castle building, the...

  • Excerpt: "While the original Stronghold was more of a sim than a real-time strategy game, Stronghold: Crusader is a hybrid that attempts to integrate the best aspects of both these genres. For the most part, it succeeds."

  • Conclusion: opened up. Unfortunately, the way the game is designed it makes it difficult to see behind buildings and objects without first accessing this menu. My advice would be to learn the hotkeys as there is no cheat sheet provided.

  • Excerpt: One of the greatest things about being a reviewer is that sometimes people actually listen to you. Stronghold: Crusader is the follow-up title to the original Stronghold game reviewed by GiN about a year ago.

  • Conclusion: I could go on about "Stronghold Crusader" day and night over, but I guess I should leave something for you to discover on your own. Finally, I would just point a couple of things out: First, female voices have deliberately been done by male actors, and second, your trebuchets are capable of firing...
  • Pros: Historically correct game, which can be played for a long, long time. Good balance and playability, excellent possibilities for tactical maneuvers. Both funny and serious at the same time;
  • Cons: Poor tutorial and help. Game dynamics are inadequate for beginners. Sometimes, it can be overly difficult, as it requires precise micro-management even in skirmish scenarios.

Firefly Studios has polished up its old game nicely and has sent it on a long road trip into the Crusades.

GameSpot
3 October 2002
  • Summary: Last year's Stronghold was a slightly uneven combination of city builder and real-time strategy game, with an emphasis on siege warfare. It had the distinction of being the only castle simulation from a major publisher since Interplay released Quicksilver's Castles II in 1992.
  • Pros: N/A
