Summary: This is the best collection of sh games you can buy. This is the fanboy pack:) sh3 I have read is a waste. Games though show there age a little but the game play shows how dumbed down current games are
Summary: I enjoyed playing this game as teen. Game revolves around you defending your castles against besiegers but also managing your castle's economy. As the game progress you begin to besiege castles as well. Once you beat the military campaign there are few economic missions revolving around rebuilding the kingdom. The game also features a few scenarios involving either military or economic goals.
Summary: This is a really great game. It offers several levels, from "Easy" to "Very Hard". You can defend your castle or lead your army to attack an evil king and his castle in another land. Be careful because this game can be very addictive and once you begin playing, you may not want to stop. Stronghold will give the player many hours of entertainment. I am 70 years old and play it often. My 7 year old grandson plays it too.
Summary: A fine product from Firefly Studios. Until Stronghold 2 came out, I was glued to my computer with this one...now I'm glued to the computer playing Stronghold 2! Great game if castle sims are your thing.
Summary: This game though released in 2001, and a lot has changed in computer industry, still this game is definitely one of my most favorite, and I always come back to play it. You can build castles, command armies, fee as a Lord in the castle. There is enough humor in it which will greatly lift up your mood, besides AI is not stupid at all.
Summary: Stronghold came out a few years ago, do not let that put you off. Set in medieval England, this is a simulation game that allows you to fight campaigns, enjoy peaceful campaigns, and even build your own campaigns. There is enough to this game to keep you busy for years. It is suitable for kids around 10 years old through to adults. We own stronghold 2 as well, and also stronghold crusader.
Summary: First of all, I am not a gameplayer. I liked SimCity the original for a while way back in 1990, and since then I've played almost no games at all. I happened on this game because Stronghold (#1, original) and Tropico were bundled, and on clearance for $2 at target. From the very first little mission, where you have to build a settlement and manage to make a bunch of bread for the king, I was rapt.
Summary: This is probably one of the best strategy games that I have ever played, and I played a lot. The real draw with Stronghold is that it's defensive oriented, so if you're the type of person that likes to design and build garrisons, then this is definately in you alley. The way that it's design, strategy isn't just merely building up a large contingent of forces and then rush.
Very fun game, with some challenges to keep you busy!

Summary: This game I think is excellant if you enjoy a stratigy/command type of game. It's realistic (for example, you have to gather and prepare wood and "hire" a soldier to get a bowman, instead of just clicking on a button and suddenly the person pops out of no where), and very fun. Each soldier and "citizen" has a semiunique personality. I have seen better graphics, but for the price of the game, and the amount of depth that it goes into, its worth it.
