Acerca de este juego

Stronghold Crusader 2 es la esperada secuela de Stronghold: Crusader, el “simulador de castillos” original. Stronghold regresa tras 12 años a los desiertos de Oriente Medio, en torno al año 1189, con un nuevo motor 3D y un sistema de destrucción de castillos realista provisto por Havok Physics. Crusader 2 recuperará la jugabilidad adictiva y frenética del juego original y la auténtica simulación de castillos.

Fiel a sus raíces, este nuevo Stronghold definirá la estrategia en tiempo real de la vieja escuela, combinando la jugabilidad de los RTS y los “city builders”. Jugando como un brutal Caballero Cruzado o como un revolucionario Árabe, tendrás que emplear una mortífera variedad de tropas y maquinaria de asedio destructiva para decidir el destino de Tierra Santa. Lidera tus tropas hacia la batalla como Ricardo Corazón de León o el Sultán de Siria en dos históricas campañas individuales, con la presencia de eventos dinámicos como tornados y plagas de langostas. Conviértete en el Señor más poderoso gestionando la economía del desierto y haciéndote con el control de los vitales oasis.

Para dominar el campo de batalla necesitarás comandar más de 25 tipos de unidades únicas, aprendiendo sus habilidades especiales. Incrementa la moral con el Sargento de Armas, lánzate a la carga con el Caballero Sasánido, usa Arqueros para lanzar un tiro largo o escala los muros del castillo con el mortal Asesino. Cuando perfecciones tus habilidades, ponlas a prueba en el modo escaramuza o lleva la batalla al online con hasta ocho jugadores humanos o de la IA. ¡Crea equipos, elige diferentes oponentes de la IA y diseña tu propio mapa en el definitivo modo escaramuza o multijugador!

Características clave


  • Construye el Castillo Definitivo -– ¡Diseña poderosas fortalezas y llénalas de trampas mortales para triturar a tus enemigos!
  • Modo Escaramuza - Asedia a tus enemigos en rápidas partidas de escaramuza personalizadas contra la IA.
  • Multijugador de 8 Jugadores - Mezcla y combina jugadores humanos y de la IA, mapas y modos de juego para montar tu partida multijugador ideal.
  • Enfréntate a numerosos Señores gestionados por la IA - Personajes de la IA clásicos regresan junto a sangre nueva, todos con diferentes personalidades, castillos y estilos de juego.
  • Afronta el camino de las Cruzadas –- Mide tu entereza a través de un abanico de campañas de escaramuzas cada vez más difíciles.
  • Juego Cooperativo -– Comparte el control de los castillos, las tropas y la gestión de recursos en el Modo Cooperativo.
  • Editor de Castillos -– Sumérgete en el Editor de Mapas o el modo Construcción libre y construye el castillo definitivo sin miedo a ser atacado.

Si eres fan de los anteriores juegos, deberías pillarlo. Para los nuevos, costará entender los entresijos del juego al principio y eso puede hacer que te guste o que no.

El juego vuelve a los orígenes después de mucho parón y eso lo agradece, la jugabilidad es variada pero perfecta para los fans de to da la vida como para los nuevos. En algunas cosas podría mejorar, como un mejor tutorial o una curva de dificultad más uniforme.

La voz del narrador es sublime, me encanta.

El vicio lo tienes asegurado.

Brace yourselves for a lenghty rant-sort-of-review.
Or just scroll down and read the summary.

Being a fan of the original Stronghold and Stronghold Crusader, it makes me sad to report that this game does not continue in the right path that was set by those two games.
The worst thing about this game are not bad visuals, glitches, unbalanced and unfair skirmish trails or even the opposing lords with paper-thin personalities (yes, even when compared to the older games' lords). The worst thing about this game is that it is not fun. Even if you're a veteran player like myself, who really tried to like the game, you have a high chance of wasting your money on this product.

Why is it not fun?
First of all, the "castle-sim" aspect that was the best thing Stronghold series had to offer is gone. Forget about witty comments when you click on your peasants, forget about fear factor and any kind of happiness management. All you have left is ale and religion, and population management was simplified so its only real purpose is to increase your taxation.


Second thing, the AI cheats. Literally. Stronghold Crusader was a hard but fair game. But this game will make you drop it when you realize how unfair it is. The sieges have been dumbed down to massive tank rushes (btw, no more ladders, siege towers and tunnelers). You think crippling the enemy's economy and destroying key structures used in building the army will stop him from recruiting more troops? Think again. The AI will always pull out more soldiers, even when you destroy their barracks, armory and mercenary post. Oh, and they get walls, siege engines and weapons for free.


Technical side of the game is not much better. The graphic quality would barely pass in 2007, and the engine is poorly optimized so expect severe FPS drops unless you have a monster machine. The FPS tends to drop the most during sieges, as there tend to be hundreds of soldiers, and a lot of wall demolishing.



Summary:

Stronghold Crusader 2 is a bad game, whether you're a veteran of the franchise or a total newcomer.
If you want a superb castle-sim, with plenty of humour, good AI, interesting opponents, great art style and 2d graphics and compact and fair gameplay - play Stronghold Crusader HD. This game will not satisfy you, unless you're ready to overlook the game's many problems. But beware, there's not much else to see.

Before seeing the not recommended, please read as there is much to talk about. Being such a fan from the Orginal Stronghold Crusader I saw this and bought it thinking it would be new and just as fun as the orginal, sadly I was misguided. The game wasn't even close to my expectations however it does bring back some stuff Iw as thankful for, such as Ai opponents I loved, skirmish mode and crusader trails. However it was missing lots and lots of things (overtiem these could be added) many siege equitments are gone in the game to name jsut one. The graphics of the game (personally) don't fit the experience. The troop cap is to little and the maps offer to little rescources (one map does but only 1 map, for noobs like myselft at Crusader 2 more maps with more rescources would of been better), in game map builder is gone and instead it is with steam level editor which is much more complicated for the AVERAGE person to use. The variety of the game gets dull quick and it doesn't flow very good (in my opinion). All in all I was disapointed with it and I would get it when it is on sale definately not worth $50 U.S. I give it 6/10

Stronghold Crusader 2 offers very little change from the previous Crusader (2001). Hardcore fans and achievement hunters will be the only ones who will appreciate SC2. The "Campaign" trails are back from the original. They offer no more than a series of AI skirmish challenges that vary in difficulty. There's a dozen or so tutorial missions the have some kind of "Narrative" but I use that word loosely.

Melee Fighting: Winning consists of massing a blob of units into another player's castle to kill thier avatar "Lord." I say "blob" because the units clip into each other It's not pleasing on the eyes when a group of a hundred pikemen can't be distinguished between a single guy. To make matters worse, during a fight they all clip into smaller blob. To make matters EVEN worse, a well placed pitch pot can decimate a group of hundreds.

Castle Smashing: The castle walls are no more than ten feet high and seem as strong as paper mache't. A few catapults can blast through a wall very quickly. Probably why they removed ladder men and seige towers from the previous games. They added "ragdoll" physics, when a unit is arrowed they will tumble off the wall, if their foot doesn't get stuck and trap them hanging like maniquins for a few seconds before they disappear. When a tower falls with units on top the ragdoll levitates like Wil-e- Coyote holding up a sign before they fall to the ground.

Themes: The music is the only thing done right. Really great Crusade feeling soundtrack. As for the two religions, a lot of care was taken to avoid controversy. The Islamic Saracens dont eat the "pig" food ration (they grow sheep farms instead) and don't drink Ale, another handicap seeing as how they can't gain the happines benifits from Bars, and no other feature was put in place instead. Churches and Mosques are only distuinguishable from a little moon and star above the Mosque.

TL:DR= Only for fans of Stronghold. a lot of features done poorly, none really dont right. It's old Stronghold with new spit polish. Nab it on a sale and knock out the generous achievements.

Good job !
Still a few bugs, few crashes, but overall great game! Some good patches will fix this.
I've played SH1,2,3,legends and kingdoms and this game is what i wanted.
Eco is nice, siege units great, this game doesnt need religion,torture, dances, feasts, etc. like many ppl say like in SH2.
All about attacking with the right units. And there are many troops to choose from which you must choose wisely cause they are expensive what makes this game a lot of fun.

TY FIREFLY !

I am a stronghold fan so i decided to make a short review.
Stronghold crusader two is a downgraded version of Crusader 1 in short talk.
I am sorry to say but the game is full fo bugs and doesn't run smooth at all an most of all doesn't add anything that stronghold crusader 1 didn't had but it has removed things that made the original series. So i stik to crusader 1 and strongly recommend others to do that to. I wished this to be a great game by the way.

So pretty much the same as the first just better graphics...meh..if you like Stronghold series its aight. i cannot get multiplayer to work..does no one else play this? :/ actually you know on 2nd thought...they left a lot of things that they couldve added. how much damage units dish out would be nice to know rather than guessing on top of a slew of other info...RTFM much?


not worth the $50 in my opinion and that's why i gave this a No

Otherwise im neuteral

I'm a diehard fan of the series, lets just get that out of the way. While I am loving Crusader 2, I feel it just hasn't brought all the features of it's predecessor to the table. It's missing the narritives of the original campaigns, and the awesomeness of the old UI. Great game, but I feel like it falls short in some areas. That shouldn't happen, the original came out twelve years ago.

No, it's not the world's best sequel - the amount of stuff added to this game in comparison to crusader 1 is minimal, which is sort of upsetting considering this game has come out 12 years after its' predecessor. However, I do not find my money wasted on this game. As a fan of the stronghold series and a proud owner of all the games (save one that I'm not too proud of...you can guess which), I will happily say that this game is the first stronghold game to not be a total waste of your time since 2002 with crusader 1 itself. On top of that, I highly recommend buying this if for nothing else than supporting the small indie studio Firefly Studios in hopes that, now without their 2K publisher forcing release dates on them, we can begin to see some proper sequels in the stronghold lineup to recover from...a troubling past, to say the least. Perhaps a stronghold 4, or even the possibility of a Legends 2 (Don't kill me, we all know somewhere inside we want a better legends :D)

With gamespy down, this is also the only remaining stronghold game besides the abysmal pile that was stronghold 3 to have functional multiplayer without the assistance of a 3rd party tool that can sometimes, to inexperienced users, be a large pain in the ♥♥♥ to use properly. So for crusader multiplayer with ease, this runs through the steam servers allowing you to simply invite your friends and such as you would for Team Fortress 2 or something.

Buy this to support firefly and enjoy the first stronghold game in 12 years to not suck right out of the box...or download in this case. And if not, do yourself at least the favor of, if you don't already, going and purchasing Stronghold HD and Stronghold Crusader HD on steam or GoG.com or somewhere - those 2 games, alongside this one, will not fail to give you hours of fun.

i really like the game i think it is very fun to play but.
maybe they could inprove the graphics and make it run better.
the siges seem kind of dull maybe you could add more sige engins to make it more interesting.
the fear factor would be fun to spice it up and add a nother way to make your pesants work faster .
i think the game is really injoinable but there are just these things that make it a second class game

Glitchy, lousy interface, unstable (stops working a lot), nothing new here really. Some keyboard functions are locked out while playing. Commands will change while playing via keyboard (I think). Map orientation is sloppy, not well engineered and really annoying. The game becomes boring quickly. Next time hire at least one person with half an imagination that just doesn't use previous game broken mechanics to strap together a "game" on a limited budget.

Unplayable.
Have fun learning to play with no help from SH2. No difficulty settings on AI, have fun losing over and over again, Maps are imba. Not even close to balanced maps. Net even trying to make balanced maps. Age of mythology had better balance than this game. 100% scammed into buying this game. Will never buy from Firefly ever again. If i am ever asked about this game i will tell them how garbage the combat is. DEFENSE BUILDINGS STOP AUTO ATTACKING.
These developers are money grubbers and a disgrace to the gaming community.
Firefly game balancers should commit suicide.

Should have done more research before buying this. The game is awful, combat is clunky and horrible to look at, I can't even build diagonal castle walls! Tooltips lack info and the game is overall not very intuitive.for being a castle sim, theres games that do it better and they're older. Pretty dissapointed by this.

I'm a long Stronghold fan and this game needs some work. The single player skirmish mode is way too hard. The advantage to the computer player makes it impossible to win. I'm not sure what they were thinking here. Not everyone is an expert gamer. Get a grip on reality. You need to put a way for a player to manipulate starting gold, position, etc. Right now, it sucks. Sorry guys, but you kinda failed on this one. The game has potential but it's also screwed up in many ways. And I'm not even touching on all the little problems, like troops walking backwards.... you need to fix this or your game launch will be a failure.

Supreme Commander -> SC: Forged Alliance -> Supreme Commander 2.
Stronghold -> Stronghold: Crusaders -> Stronghold 2.

Same story all over again. Take a time proven concept for a great game and mangle it beyond recognition in an underwhelming effort of squelching the last few bucks out of a great franchise.

Seriously? A maximum of troops and buildings in multiplayer games? Still limited to 24 peasants in the recruitment pool? Way less options to customize your stronghold? Worse ballistics than Stronghold Crusaders which at least captured the feel of a volley of arrows where this game just... just... no.

PLayed HUNDREDS of hours with the original games. This is already getting on my nerves after half a dozen.

STAY AWAY FROM IT IF YOU LIKED CRUSADERS AND KEEP THE MEMORIES OF A GREAT GAME IN YOUR MIND. Or even better: Pick up the Original Crusaders. It´s better than this POS.

I had my hopes up for this release, given the screenshots that were shown and the promise to remain true to the original stronghold crusader. I thought this could be the one. Boy, was I wrong. Once again, Firefly Studios has managed to let down their fan base. Do not buy this. A big waste of money.

-as an RTS player i'm totally satisfacted by playing this game. i'm kinda bored of ling bling muta things... in SHC2 i almost finished vanilla trials and i'm generally playing on multiplayer now. i actually loved that strategy in this game based on;

building walls(this simcity part is always fun),

knowledge of
+some economic timings(if u playing 10-15 mins no-rush so u must leave peace time with a nice income),
+unit abilities, (oil throwers, pikemen, dervishes)
+counters, (there are a lot)
+compositions (u can beat all ez ai's with mass arab archer and swords but in multiplayer u will probably get pwned).

btw it's a lot fun when both Lords are about to die and start escaping from death.

(haters gonna lose Lords)

Peace
