Planet Stronghold

Gamezebo
6 May 2011
  • Summary: Become a space hero and choose your destiny in Planet Stronghold.
  • Pros: Tense, engaging combat system. Relationship system is interesting. Multiple endings add replay value. Game generally rewards exploration
  • Cons: Battles can feel very long. It’s easy to get in over your head by going places you’re not supposed to be yet. Plot is a little thin given the emphasis on replaying. Parts of the game are repetitive.

  • 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.

Stronghold

Game Over Online
7 February 2005
  • 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.

Stronghold

  • 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?

2 November 2001
  • Summary: Stronghold is both a real-time combat game that focuses entirely on castle sieges and a village-management simulation in the vein of Zeus or The Settlers. The subject matter alone gives Stronghold a leg up. It's been years since a game let you pour boiling oil on invading hordes, and Stronghold simulates castle sieges well enough to recommend it to those who are interested in the premise. But it's a hesitant recommendation, due to a poor interface and mediocre campaigns.
  • Pros: N/A

  • 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

  • Excerpt: Plongez vous dans le monde du Moyen-Age, une époque où les châteaux représentaient les refuges les plus sûrs. Stronghold constitue une combinaison entre la simulation de construction et la stratégie en temps réel. Construisez et gérez des châteaux réalistes, conduisez des expéditions et...

Burgenbauen für Hobby-Taktiker

11 December 2005
  • Excerpt: Hin und wieder wechseln Sie auf die Seite der Angreifer und belagern selbst Burgen. [Quelle: ] Lobenswert: Weil der umfassende Test von Stronghold in der vergangenen Ausgabe von PC Games einige Schwachpunkte zutage förderte, versprachen die Programmierer, noch einmal in die Tasten zu hauen und bis zur Verkaufsversion vieles zu verbessern. Die liegt mittlerweile vor und musste sich erneut auf dem Prüfstand von PC Games beweisen.

Evil Twin: Cyprien´s Chronicles

Spieletipps.de
29 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.
