Stronghold Crusader

Deaf Gamers
9 September 2005
  • Conclusion: A more complete game than Stronghold but ultimately it's the gameplay modes/options that make Crusader stand out rather than any differences in the gameplay.

Stronghold: Crusader

The Wargamer
30 January 2003
  • 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.

Stronghold Crusader

The Armchair Empire
15 December 2002
  • 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. Stronghold Crusader is historically focused on the crusades as it's background for bringing gamers to the intriguing world of castle building, and siege warfare.

Stronghold Crusader

Game Over Online
6 December 2002
  • Excerpt: The Gathering of Developers web site calls Stronghold aCrusader the “successor” to last year’s castle building sim, Stronghold . That’s sort of a sneaky way of not taking sides about whether Crusader is supposed to be a sequel or a stand-alone expansion pack, but take it from me, the game is much more the latter than the former.

Breeching the walls, again

GIN
24 October 2002
  • 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. Anyhow, just about everything that I said needed fixed from the original title has been improved here. Of course I am sure I was not the only reviewer who brought up some missing features, but at least I was among the crowd calling for change.

  • Summary: "Strategie zasazené do období støedovìku jsou pro noho z nás velkým lákadlem. Existuje mnoho her, které si získaly vaši pøízeò, ale jednou z tìch úplnì nejlepších je Stronghold. Tato hra se doèkala i datadisku Stronghold Crusader , jehož vylepšenou verzí je díl s názvem Stronghold Crusader Extreme. Koncept hry zùstal samozøejmì nezmìnìn, ovšem obtížnost se rapidnì navýšila a proto je tento kousek urèen pro zdatné stratégy.

Tausende von Kämpfern

T-Online
28 May 2008
  • Summary: Es gehört schon viel Mut dazu, ein Spiel gut sechs Jahre nach Veröffentlichung erneut auf den Markt zu bringen, das schon damals nicht gerade ein optisches Highlight war. Mögen die Neuerungen in der Extreme-Version auch recht nett klingen (frische Kampagne, größeres Truppenlimit, Kartennachschub und neue Gegner), so bleibt nun mal ein hoffnungslos veraltetes Echtzeitstrategiespiel, das gegen die aktuelle Genre-Konkurrenz keine Chance hat.
