Stronghold Legends Review

VideoGamer.com
5 August 2007
  • Excerpt: There are certain things in life that a man like me shall always appreciate. Among them are the first sip of a good whisky at the end of a stressful day, the grumbly murmurings of Dylan Moran as he tames his crazy hair, a cryptic crossword and, yes, the feel of a 'classic' RTS game which holds the same design and layout as many of its genre from the last decade.

  • Summary: Stronghold Legends builds on the Stronghold heritage with beautifully crafted visuals and the epic legends of the middle ages, featuring three unique castle styles to build, three landscapes to fight across, spectacular magic themes, fearsome monsters to overcome, a new strategic conquest style of play, and a range of new multiplayer modes.

UFO: Afterlight

Hooked Gamers

  • Conclusion: I'm usually not one to complain about sound. Most games make use of standard sound libraries and unless developers choose to produce most of the sounds themselves, there is very little to complain about. Yet it is sound where UFO dropped the ball for me. Many of the sound effects in the game sound as if the entire game is played within a tin can.

  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Question : “What do you get when you take the concept & premise of an RTS game, give it beautiful graphics & animations, good sound effects, and throw in incredibly mediocre, lousy,  and slow-as-hell gameplay ?” Answer : “Stronghold Legends, of course !! Why you, sir, are a total dimwit ! Don’t you know that this game sucks ?” Of course you don’t, that’s why you’re reading this.

Stronghold Legends Review

GameSpot
10 November 2006
  • Excerpt: It's gotten to the point that you don't know what you're going to get when you open the box of a new Stronghold game. The castle-building franchise from Hartford's Firefly Studios has gone through some significant changes over the past two years, but the latest version throws the whole formula out the window. Stronghold Legends moves the series out of the history books and into D&D-styled real-time strategy territory with mythical heroes, dragons, and dwarves.
  • Pros: Interesting concept blends medieval history with fantasy
  • Cons: All three armies are almost identical, Mission design is overly linear and less than imaginative, Numerous AI problems, Dark, dull visuals

Gameplanet
12 December 2006
  • Excerpt: A worthy addition to any armchair general's arsenal.
  • Pros: Strong tactical gameplay, with the seamless involvement of new fantastic elements and units. Strong, long campaign with an involved storyline.
  • Cons: Single-player gameplay can be a little too difficult, even on the easiest setting, and requires multiple replays sometimes in order to beat the maps.
