"The highpoint of the castle-building series mixes economy with siege warfare. Some minor UI issues, outdated animations, but great game regardless."

Acerca deste jogo

Journey to distant Arabian lands renowned for brave warriors and fearsome weaponry in Stronghold Crusader HD. The highly anticipated sequel to the best-selling Stronghold, Crusader throws you into historic battles from the Crusades with fiendish AI opponents, new units, 4 historical campaigns and over 100 unique skirmish missions.

Story

Relive the historic Crusades as Richard the Lionheart and the Saladin, Sultan of Syria. Lead a determined group of Crusaders, forged by centuries of barbaric warfare, amidst the haze of the desert heat then fight for your freedom as the mighty Saladin.

Stronghold Crusader HD features several campaigns documenting the First, Second and Third Crusades, as well as conflicts within the individual Crusader states. Battles such as Nicea, Heraclea, siege of Antioch, Krak des Chevaliers and the Siege of Jerusalem all feature, as do the Crusader Trails from the Stronghold Warchest and Stronghold Crusader Extreme.

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.

Both Stronghold Crusader and Stronghold Crusader Extreme are included in Stronghold Crusader HD. Extreme plays exactly like the original Stronghold Crusader, only with a few additions. The unit cap has been increased from 1000 to a staggering 10,000 troops, special Tactical Powers such as the Arrow Volley can be used and new buildings make their appearance alongside the Crusader Extreme skirmish trail.

Features
  • Join the Crusaders or the Saladin’s forces in 4 historical campaigns.
  • Fight through 100 unique skirmish missions, each one more challenging than the last.
  • Design and build your desert fortress, with a working economy and brutal killing zones.

The gaming equivalent of heaven.

Stronghold Crusader is a castle building strategy game. Whether you like castles or medieval times is irrelevant, if you like strategy games you will adore this game.

Coming off the successful 2001 hit Stronghold, Stronghold Crusader removes and improves elements of its predecessor to galore the public with a map editor and a skirmish mode, however for newcomers a game tutorial is sadly not available.

Be sure to Google the "Stronghold Crusader Heaven" website. They have a large number of scenarios and utilities (like scenario unlockers) for this product. The unlocker also allows you to edit existing scenarios, which is almost a must-do for most people to have a chance to win the tough Extreme scenarios.

Even though I only have 2.3 hrs on record in Steam. I bought this game on the disk (yes disk) around 10-11 years ago when it came out.

The online scene was buzzing and me and up to 6 friends used to constantly skirmish on Gamespy Arcade. Now Gamespy is dead, you can only play another player through the IP option which is a little fiddly, but it is doable.

The AI in this game is pretty good and you dont need to play humans to be challenged. The game is a timeless gem and I would recomend it to anyone. Crusader is by far the best in the series. Stronghold 1 is great is your playing the campaign. But I wouldn't go any further down the line than that, Firefly studios went down hill.

If your in to top down stratergy games, this game is amazing. I'd advise you watch Total Biscuits video on it, he explains it very well.

Go buy it, then contact me on steam if you want a game or a co-op partner! :D

Stronghold Crusader HD

This game brings back memories of spending hours building up a castle and an army, and then just destroying everyone else.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Hours of Endless Fun
  • Can be a slow peaceful game (if you want)
  • Can be a fast aggressive game (if you want)
  • Design your castle to how ever you want
  • Make you own map, and then play it

Cons

  • Hours of time wasted
  • Your partner will hate you for playing this game
  • Cant really zoom out enough to see the whole map (but there is a mini map)

But other than that i give it a 10/10

And if you've not played this game before and fancy a spoiler see below

Stronghold Crusader came out mid 2002 after the succesful Stronghold in 2001. Stronghold Crusader is set in the Middle East during the crusades rather then Europe like the first one, hence the name Crusader. This is a real time stratergy game with the focus of killing the enemy Lord/s. Careful though as he will be very strong and can take over 10000 archer arrows! don't worry it is done on purpose so you can kill him at a range, so best to send 10 plus swords men at him.

If you played the Original like I did many moons ago there are changes in this HD edition and NONE! are bad. There are 8 more characters to verus, more resolution sizes and graphics has imporved. Everything else is the same as the original which is amazing!

So the Pro's:
- Personally the best out of all Strongholds
- Unique RTS that requires not only military stratergies but also civil (do you make them drug and fed or starve and whip them?)
- Arabian units are an awesome edition giving alot more unit choice
- Fire implementation in the game is great, see random guys on fire turn a city into a flame ball (happens more often then you think), yes this is a pro!!
- Large campaign and a few side stories 'missions'
- Great to plan with mates (LAN or over the net)
- Replayability in custom maps or make your own which is easily shared to other pc's when trying to match make
- alot of challanging Lords to play
- Fun castle building and desgining to fit all military and civil works in and around

Con's
- 400 unit pop count, may sound like alot but it isn't when you are trying to kill 7 Lord's at once
- The Large map for 8 Players can seem very small in most instances
- If AI Lords placed close together or near iron it is create holes or even block themsleves in starving their kingdom.
- No unit or building healing (can repair towers and that's it)
- Would be good to make AI even harder, they have Lords to difficulty but it would be good if you can adjust it more
- Most of the time units will not attack the enemy until they are either told or the enemy are already bashing their face in
- Enemy AI with their army can be very disorganized making them easy prey

Overall I love this edition of Stronghold Crusader HD, I will continue to use it and LAN with friends. If you want a LAN game to kill some time this is great for you! (better to vs your friends for more of a challange).

any questions don't be afriad to ask.
