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? First off, Stronghold offers a more immersive experience, without overwhelming the player with micro-management, second off Stronghold simulates castle sieges well enough to recommend it to those who are interested in the medieval fortress simulators.
Stronghold features two main modes of play: combat and economic-based. In the military story-driven campaign you have to defend against sieges, and siege other castles, as well as incorporate the economic elements. The economic-based games are generally simpler - designed to catch people who enjoy city-building games or simply want to build up an impressive castle without too much fighting, just freeform build. In addition, Stronghold also features skirmish mode and multiplayer mode in which you can lay siege to friends' castles over LAN or internet (you can post your fortresses on the internet where other Stronghold players will download your castle and then storm it).
Although some people told me this game sucks and the interface is lame, it's not true. The interface does its job very well, just you need to learn how to flatten the landscape by holding down the [SPACEBAR] key or the [V] which will lower or flatten your terrain and let you se any gaps in the walls or let you place buildings in those hard to see areas. Also use [Z] to zoom or [X] to rotate your view. I played this game like a week and very liked it. This game only need some time to get in, so I bet you won't like Stronghold much the first time you play it :) I strongly recommend you to start with "The Free Build option", it's much better than any tutorial. There is my final verdict - Stronghold is the best castle sim ever made! Download playable demo (60.7MB).

snd: 4/5 - excellent spot effects, nice medieval music, quite annoying voice acting
gfx: 4/5 - quite dated but very well detailed, clear and effective, can be rotated and zoomed, rendered in 2D, available modes: 800x600 and 1024x768
playability: 5/5 - very immersive, charming, and absorbing, multiplayer via LAN/Internet, in-depth 21 mission military campaign
genre: RTS/medieval fortress sim
release: September 2001
developer: FireFly Studios
publisher: GodGames
Overall: 84%

Looks very good, and plays good, but get boring quite fast.

milosposted - Nov, 15 2001 - 13:11
Finished it in a week or so, and during that time I never got bored wit the game. For those who prefer to defend them selves rather then attack in RTS games this is probably the best option. Battles are wery intense & beautifoul to watch the only drawback to this game is somewhat weak enemy AI and several bugs.

it is a very good game!

Pretty fun game. I am experiencing the mission 13 bug, and the only place I can find the patch is on a pay service "FilePlanet" and not on God Games nor Fireflies site. If that is how they plan to support it, I'd say stay away. I'm very angry I can't get a patch. Review? Single player campaign is very captivating. Multiplayer is quite buggy before the patch. But I will re-iterate, I can't find this patch except on a "Pay 6.95 a month" site. That's brutal when you have a critical issue that keeps you from completing the game. Sounds like grounds for Class Action to me.

David Chenposted - Nov, 19 2001 - 02:38
The bug on mission 13 gave me a very good time. He added more need to build up a better defense strat without a fully closed walls. This game is two thumbs up!

George Pahinisposted - Nov, 20 2001 - 11:27
Loved it ! Hope this game becomes a huge hit because I want a mission pack and a sequel. Good: excellent, detailed graphics, Funny voice prompts, good economic game, excellent military choices. Not-so-good: enemy AI, the fact that you don't actually build many castles from scratch in the military campaign, should have included an "Attack Now" button in the Free Build Mode. Maps generally too small. Overall, I would recommend this game to anyone with even a passing interest in the Medieval period.

Enourmous!!!!! It is a very good game for those who like AGE of EMPIRES BUT THIS IS MORE GOOD. It is diffcult to play and it is more realistic. Have fun who have it!!!

Tuncaposted - Nov, 28 2001 - 14:43
excellent sound and playable..

Stashposted - Dec, 27 2001 - 08:34

were can i find a cheat on this game

OminousSilenceposted - Mar, 15 2002 - 08:54
Man why do you want to cheat? The fun in the game is beating it yourself.

Joe Schmoeposted - Mar, 30 2002 - 08:50 Obviously, you're quite daft. Fileplanet offers an alternate, completely FREE service--you just have to wait thirty or so minutes for the servers to open up, seeing that there are over 500 users at any time. There is more than one spot to download the patch. Fact is, the game is great, the setup...iffy. You're just an idiot who has no concept of legal suits. "Class action" Riiiight. Great game... Hopefully you catch on quick, since the storyline is very slow for the first half, then takes off like a rocket. And I mean like a rocket. :)

dorrisposted - Jul, 17 2002 - 21:19
Strongholds Rocks!! Seriously. I've always wated an "attack now" button in freebuild, it should so be a thing. Hey does anybody know how to do a mod for this game, because it has so much potential. I want to see all differant styles of castles and all differant races fighting, wouldn't that be mental. Oh, and does anybody know of a Strongholds website or fansite besides the Firefly studios one, with maps and stuff like that on it, cos there definately should be one, and if there isn't, someone who wants to get one put up on the net, just e-mail me and I could definately help in the creation side of it. In-fact, I could do it all by myself probably, except if I wanted to do database type stuff, which I have no idea about. Well, if people here think that I should make one so that people can upload and download each others maps and what ever else we think of them just say so here...
