  • Summary: We purchased this game at what seemed a good price, but it didn't work on Vista at initial installation. However, a note came up saying, "Uninstall and reinstall" which we did, and now it works!

  • Summary: I love Stronghold. Stronghold is fun, but Stronghold Crusader is my favorite. Building is fun. You get better buildings than Stronghold Crusader. But you get better guys and more enemies and allies.

Stronghold - "Slubberdegollian!"

Liambrown..., Ciao
18 October 2006
  • Excerpt: "Stronghold was probably the first PC game that I got addicted to. The game may not appeal to everyone out there but I personally found the game amazing and was a great game to be apart of. The game itself as a medieval war based game in which the storyline is based upon the king being captured, and dukes taking over England. The dukes have dominated the land and killed your father in the process as he was fighting them in the honour of the king. ...
  • Pros: One of the best Castle - sim games ever created !
  • Cons: not a very rewarding mission mode

  • Excerpt: "...you aren't playing the game. Stronghold is also a reliable game since it has comparatively few errors. Despite what is said in the system requirements, this game will run on Windows XP, and there are few computers that won't run Stronghold. For the military campaign, the storyline is you are in a country that has been fighting invaders. You have little territory left from which to expand outwards. The campaign starts off simply, and becomes harder ...
  • Pros: Good storyline
  • Cons: Does not last

Stronghold- how firmly can you hold it?

  • Excerpt: "Stronghold involves lots of destrcution and chaos caused by your warriors of combat. These range from archers to battering rams and all are good at their seperate thing. Some killing, some making, some smashing walls down and some just don't do anything really ! I bought mine from game for £14.99 quite a while back so i guess the price ahs depreciated vastly since then. I estimate that it can sell for £5.99 or so now and you should look in shops ...
  • Pros: Amazing attention to detail in graphics and sound aswell as gameplay -  all round superb game
  • Cons: stalls as it takes up vast memory and multiplayer must be through gamespy arcade

Plenty of fun in medieval warfare & castle running

SirLink, Ciao

  • Excerpt: "...it, I’ve been excited about Stronghold — and worried about it. I thought the idea of a SimCastle-style game was a great one, and an in-depth RTS siege game had just as much promise. But could developer Firefly Studios bring these two distinct elements together into one cohesive and entertaining whole? Well, yes they did. The military campaign ramps up nicely from building small, wooden forts and defending them against incompetent foes, ...
  • Pros: A nice city sim and a fun RTS; excellent military mode; charming graphics/music
  • Cons: Facile economics model; can be somewhat static at times; anemic multiplay

Stranglehold

DavidJWes..., Ciao
18 January 2002
  • Excerpt: "Stronghold is a new release from FireFly, letting you take the role of a medieval lord in olde England (and Wales). It takes the guise of a RTS (real time strategy) game and you control both your military forces as well as having certain economic decisions to make. The crux of the game however, and my main reason for wanting the game, is that you can design and build mighty castles. Ever since I was a small child I have loved to visit these ancient ...
  • Pros: Great simulation/wargame
  • Cons: A few glitches
