cheaper than buying seperate

Summary: Two packs in there may only be worth it, BUT it is much cheaper than buying seperate, it is a fun game always challenging, and having the ability to play the older or newer version of the game.
Buy the disk, the download for Stronghold II won't play, keeps crashing.

Summary: Loved the game years ago. I even downloaded the first Stronghold HD version. It worked great. I got this one because I enjoyed the improvements made in Stronghold II. The game gets past the menu to any mission but the graphics don't process. Instead of green or brown for grass and dirt, it's black. As soon as you place a stockpile on the kingbuilder mode, the game always crashes. Buy the CD if you want to play the game. Legends worked fine. Didn't try the other two.
Like several others I cannot run the games after downloading

Summary: Like several others I cannot run the games after downloading. After the initial download I was able to run one of the games. Recently upgraded PC and tried to download and run on the newly upgraded PC, same results. Reformatted SSD and did a fresh install on W7, upgraded video card and added 8 gig of ram, still no go.. Funny thing is that I was able to install and run II on the first attempt but now none of the games run.
Summary: I enjoy the game. The only problem is trying to play in the multiplayer mode. I and my friend in Michigan can not get the multiplayer connection to work. He is a computer geek, a programmer and builds his own computers, yet he can not figure out how to make it connect in multiplayer mode. We have tried the tcp/ip address and going through specific ports. No go on the multiplayer. It might be an issue with Steam. The game itself is fun.
