"A genuine castle sim that is complex, colorful and can fit on a floppy disk. A lot more building options than the new sequel with the fear factor system"

Tietoja pelistä

The original castle sim, Stronghold HD allows you to design, build and destroy historical castles. Engage in medieval warfare against the AI in one of two single player campaigns or online with up to 8 players.

Story

With 21 missions to test your mettle and four renegade lords to defeat, it is up to you to reunite medieval England and take back your lands from the treacherous Rat, Pig, Snake and Wolf. Missions range from breaking sieges and capturing enemy castles to raising gold and holding off enemy attacks. Also featured is a full economic campaign, tasking players to gather resources and build weapons within the time limit.

HD Edition

With new high resolution graphics you have more control over your soldiers than ever before. The new HD battlefield view allows you to zoom out and play in real-time, with the whole map on one screen. Advance on the castle gates while flanking the enemy from behind, feign retreat and lead your foe into a deadly trap or just sit back and watch the destruction unfold.

A game where I get to play a basterd lord of my fictional stronghold Scrotumshire, striking fear into my peasants, forcing them to live in filth and suffering while keeping the nobles fat and filled with wine. Pretty much sounds like a Game of Thrones set up.

Greetings, Sire ! Your Stronghold awaits you !
Best RTS I know.
Build a damn castle, set up economy, build up strong army and CRUSH ANYONE WHO STANDS ON YOUR WAY.
Has long campaign, amazing plot and missions are quite hard (at least last ones are).
Also, free building mode and additional campaigns. Historical sieges ! A lot of things.
Nostalgia, men.

This game is just as good as I remember it. The screams of invading soldiers as burning pitch is dumped onto their heads is still as satisfying now as it was all those years ago.

When this game first came out, I played it incessantly. It was clear from the beginning that the devs put a lot of nuance and original thought in this game. The campaign is really fun and brings a lighthearted story as you build your castle and prevent it from being overrun.

The music is excellent and brings an authentic mood and flavour to this game, as does the voice acting.

The graphics are dated but as a medieval castle sim they aren't a drawback. The HD rerelease adds very little to it, however.

As I'm sure the publisher found out this game proved to be successful and they released a string of games in this series. Quite honestly the move to 3D didn't do much and actually took away from the authentic feeling that came with this game. I didn't find the 3D graphics that good in the 2nd stronghold. The crusader series was equally interesting and unique and the Crusader Extreme release was insanely frustrating and crazy what with the AI rushes.

The only maddening thing about this game is that sometimes it is difficult to accurately gauge where to build stone for your castle wall. You sometimes need to draw down the wall option to allow you to see the ground, because I have spent hours building a castle only to have it overrun in seconds because the enemy AI ran through a small breach that was otherwise undetected. Other than that a very good game overall. Sad to see that the franchise has not improved over time...

Even after more than a decade

still struggling to complete mission on normal difficulty.

watching my whole castle destroyed by 3 bandits then wolf pack comes along and pawned them makes me feel good

would try again and get my castle destroyed 10/10.

The axe cutter dude is probably the most blood thirsty, savage, over powered unti in the whole game. I've seen that guy do crasy ♥♥♥♥ just to get fire wood for me including killing enemy axe cutters, destroying enemy catapults to collect the wood that the catapult is built with, and taking arrow fire just to get the last tree of the land. I respect these men.

Still one of the best Castle Building Strategy games around. So much fun had with this game that I've played it through multiple times. Unfortunately the game is no multiplayer friendly as they forgot to include Fog-Of-War!

Lots of economy building and castle building really fun.

It would be lovely if the game somehow had skimishes like Stronghold Crusader does. But I am addicted to this series from the very beginning and I'm still enjoying it so many years later~

This game is fun, nicely made, and a classical game which is really good. It is my second best in the stronghold, series SH2 coming first. Personally, I would recommend this as you can build imaginatevly, and have a nice castle in the countryside, on a hill, or peacfully in the middle of the sea. (Need to build a map for that.)

Get this game and you won't regret it!!!
