A Good RTS

A good strategy game, if you enjoy strategy games. It's a bit difficult to get into, though, if they aren't really your thing. So don't expect to seamlessly drop into the ruling seat of the most powerful nation ever, unless you have some experience in such matters.

The graphics are decent, and gameplay is satisfying enough to keep you going.

Decent Rts stronghold/ageofempire alike

Citadels seems to be inspired by the Settlers and Stronghold series mostly. You can build up your economy, refine materials, build defensive towers and walls, train troops and attack your opponent. Each element of the gameplay is unfortunately pretty basic and unfinished, though. The base for a promising game may be in place but it's like the developer didn't have the resources to finish it. It also contains some glaring bugs and glitches (i.e. peasants getting stuck idle while constructing because of poor pathfinding, glitchy selection boxes making unit selection difficult...) that suggest that this game should have remained in development much longer.

Decent

I have played many RTS games. This game I thought would really suck but after about an hour playing it, I was kinda addicted to it. Compared to Company of Heroes, its about an 8/10 where CoH is a 9/10. The graphics in this are pretty good for what it is but without a tutorial for any beginners, it may be hard to get started. If you have experience playing RTS games, you should pick this up quite easily. In the end, this game should be $20 not $40.

I am enjoying it presently!

The graphics look pretty nice, and the game runs smoothly and I dont have an extreme gaming PC. The game mechanics are awesome, I havent played the previous strongholds but I think I will pick them up because this style of gameplay is great. Maybe its to hard for some people, but it isnt to complicated. The campaign is pretty good, I have reached the 7th mission and the first level isnt great but right after that from level 2 onwards the game really picks up. I tried multiplayer and it works fine contrary to what other people have said. There are plenty of matches in the browser and the games run fine. I really cant find many flaws, this is actaully a pretty damn good strategy castle game.
