  • Conclusion: The Stronghold series starts out strong, but goes south fast. I’m surprised I didn’t make the connection to the Stronghold games to the Anno (Dawn of Discovery) games as they play out in a similar fashion. If you’re looking for a good time sink and really like management and tower defense games, you’re in for a treat with Stronghold and Crusader.

  • Conclusion: Unfortunately, in-between mission taunts by your opponents are the only continuity between the each segment of the campaign. Completion of one battle or economic goal brings new types of military units and structure possibilities, but one must build a keep, town, and army from scratch. Stronghold would have been improved immensely if units carried over from previous conflicts, with surviving soldiers improving their proficiency as in Shogun.

  • Excerpt: Stronghold is a kind of sim-castle set in post-Norman England, which combines much of the gameplay elements of Zeus, Age of Kings and The Settlers (No wonder because the founding members of Firefly Studios worked on the Caesar and Lord of the Realms games). So what's is unique on this game?

  • Excerpt: Castle building sims have been few and far between. From the handful of titles that have graced shelves over the era of computer gaming, very few were memorable enough to be recalled today. Of these, the one that stands out was Lords of the Realm 2. The design team hailed from the heyday of the reign of Sierra and became known as Impressions Studios. They would go on to create more empire sims including Caesar 3.

  • Conclusion: A great game for Castle sim addicts but maybe not something for all levels of play as it is a very advanced game on the whole for its genre

Evil Twin: Cyprien´s Chronicles

16 March 2005
  • Summary: Eines vorweg: "Evil Twin" ist ein gutes Geschicklichkeitsspiel mit vielen tollen Ideen, einer bizarren Spielwelt und hervorragender Technik. Leider wurden trotz der vielen positiven Gesichtspunkte einige gravierende Fehler gemacht, die immer wieder auftauchen: die miserable Kameraführung kann einem gewaltig den Spaß am guten und unterhaltsamen Konzept verderben, denn selbst nach einiger Eingewöhnungszeit bringt einen das wilde Hin- und Hergeschwenke zur Weißglut.
