  • Summary: All the crusader stronghold games for a great price. Using the game download engine was a little tricky but once I figured out how to use it it made downloading quick.

  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Pros: One of the best Castle - sim games ever created !
  • Cons: not a very rewarding mission mode

holed up in stronghold

  • Excerpt: Stronghold is a brilliantly designed game with far more to it than what is implied. The main idea is to build up a castle to defend against invading armies, or conquer a castle with your own armies.
  • Pros: Good storyline
  • Cons: Does not last

  • Excerpt: I bought this game as soon as it came out on take advantage. What a game it was. First day I had it I dived into the military campaign. (After the somewhat slow tutorial, but they have to look after those new to the genre.) I remember that the first few levels involved fighting off wolves.
  • Pros: Pretty castles, well balenced troops, solid map design
  • Cons: Plot (but only if you care), glitches .

Stronghold- how firmly can you hold it?

jstar869, Ciao

  • 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 !
  • 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

User Review

  • Excerpt: Stronghold is a mix between Age Of Empires and Cossacks. You have to set taxes and build bakeries and granarys to store food in. You can only plant crops on flat low land. It's these little details which make the game good.
