Many hours of my youth were spent in this franchise and I do not regret the choice. Arguably the best medieval castle simulation available it allows for great creativity. You will devise the best defences to keep your domain and your lord safe from other more unscrupulous lords. Once the day is won you can take the fight to them and besiege their castle with mighty siege weapons that will reduce everything to rubble. They all offer enjoyable campaigns and sandbox modes to built to your hearts content. There is also a lot of character from listening to the needs and thoughts of your subjects going about their daily lives. I would personally focus on the older games included as they are the most well rounded experiences since the most recent stronghold titles outside of this pack are steps backwards unfortunately. A cult classic that will not disappoint if you enjoy strategic combat and managing your industries.
This pack brings you Stronghold HD, Stronghold Crusader HD + Extreme, Stronghold 2 and Stronghold Legends. To start of, Stronghold HD and Stronghold Crusaders HD are the best ones in the series. I wish they remade this with the same mechanics but with newer graphics! Stronghold 2 Is amazing, the first 3D one, they did an amazing job with this one and it's pretty much the same has HD but in 3D but with some removed features. Stronghold Legends, well this one is Stronghold 2 but with myth creatures, I don't enjoy it that much but some people enjoy it. All of them are very well optimized on PC but they have frame limit!
Personally, i love the stronghold games, they are a work of art. These games will run well on most computers. They provide a plethora of things to do. Yet, to summarise the main points, you must: 1. Build a stable economy within your kingdom. 2. Amass an army and an effective defense for combat. 3. work with the AI and coordinate attacks upon your enemies. All in all, this is a deal that will keep providing worthwhile gaming hours. The replay value is through the roof for these games as well. Have fun dominating all who oppose you!
That is what all of this is. A collection of great games with hours of fun attached to every single one of them. Plenty of people die, and they die for you! Isn't that sweet of them? Plus they have revamped the graphics to HD quality to make their human sacrifices even more meaningful! So, what are you waiting for? Enjoy the fun and watch people sell their souls for your life! Get going!
I really love stronghold, my favourite is classic stronghold. The best game where you can buil your own little castle, and defend it with lot of knights and archers. The crusader extreme is good too , you can command a big army , thousands of people die for you :D if you love strategy games than try this one. it have a good price too so have fun to all :D
