Over dit spel

Stronghold 3 is het langverwachte derde deel in de prijzenwinnende kasteelbouw-serie. 10 jaar na het origineel lijkt het alsof de Wolf aan de dood is ontsnapt, en tijdens zijn herstelling is hij nog meer verbitterd en kwaadaardig geworden. Nu zoekt hij wraak. De Wolf heeft met het overvallen van dorpen en stadjes in het midden van de nacht een paniekgolf veroorzaakt, en jij en je bondgenoten zijn de enigsten die tegenover hem staan. Wat zal je in deze beeldschone update van 's werelds favoriete kasteelsim doen - tijdens de dag overwinnen of tijdens de nacht sterven?

Belangrijkste onderdelen:

  • Bouw en beheer machtige kastelen met een geïmproviseerd bouwsysteem dat ongehoorde niveaus van realiteit en ingewikkeldheid toestaat
  • Realistische fysica en de allernieuwste graphics maken belegeringsoorlogvoering meer uitdagend dan ooit.
  • Zie je dorp tot leven komen met een wonderlijke afschildering van het middeleeuwse dorpsleven
  • Door verhaal gedreven gameplay neemt spelers door twee campagnes heen: veldslag of economisch
  • Dramatische nachtbelegeringen voegen een nieuwe dimensie toe aan de Stronghold-serie
  • Beleger de kastelen van andere spelers of verdedig dat van jezelf in meedere met actie gevulde online multiplayerstanden
  • Val nauwkeurig hermaakte kastelen uit de geschiedenis aan of verdedig ze. Zal het je lukken om te doen wat anderen niet konden?

2/10
Overall, don't buy the game. Its terrible... It doesn't live up to the Stronghold series. Don't even buy it on a sale even if its $7.49. Go buy a small game with 8 dollars, you can probably find something with more playability. Go ahead and buy those cheap DLCs or cosmetics you've been wanting for your other games. Go ahead... its much better to buy cosmetic DLCs or small packs then it is to buy this game.
CategoryRating
Graphics8/10 The games graphics are probably the best in the Stronghold series, but there are problems stated about this below
Modes3/10 The lack of modes is terrible, there is no more skirmishes, there is a great lack of siege battles (and those siege battles are pathetic). There is no built in editor either.
Campaign5/10 The campaign is terrible! I haven't even got through the first mission it was SO poor!
Building placement3/10 This is a true horror. They added a nice new way to rotate buildings, but the downside is, it takes longer to place buildings now! But whats worse is the spaceing! You can't place buildings closer than 6 feet now! Buildings are so spaced, but the maps (which I won't do a category on) are also terrible! You can only place buildings on 1/4 of the map, because of the elevation, and the strict limits! You have to be careful of where you place, and you can only place so few buildings because of the stupid placement system.
Bugs and crashes4/10 I myself haven't saw much bugs (but I have heard of a lot) But crashes, theres a lot of that too. Not even 2 hours, and I already had a crash. The first Stronghold is more stable with crashes, even though I have Windows 8 and no compability mode on!
How it runs4/10 LAG LAG LAG and low FPS. I really don't know if its my computer or the game, but it has a low FPS. Other people have stated there was lag though. But it is bad... I can run 800 people with a small castle on the map in Stronghold 2 on high graphics, here I can't run 100 people on the map with even medium graphics. Avoid.
ExtraOnce, a Youtuber named DiplexHeated said,"The buildings are terrible. It all just feels like a village, unlike a castle you'd see in Stronghold 2."

Shame on firefly. Money grabbing ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s to ruin a great series with a broken mess that is SH3t. They never fixed the game because its unfixable and are still trying to sell this pos on steam. Shame on Steam too. Firefly will never see another dollar from me.

Rember how great Stronghold was?
Remeber how Stronghold 2 caught that same magic, just refined it down. Wasn't 100% the origional, but it brough its own things to the table.

Stronghold 3 is an attept to capture the elements of the first two games with updated graphics. However it feels like it was made by a completely differt studio. This game is just not the same. It looks the same, the core concepts are there, but it's not. Ever see John Carpenters "The Thing"....yeh, and then the new one? Just like that, keep the origionals and don't spoil your memory

A terrible grab at money. I would barely say this glitchy, buggy, lazy and poorly optimized game is worth a purchase on sale, especially to fans of the franchise. Now I was alright with Stronghold 2. It was fun enough. Same with Legends. They had their issues but they were still decently fun games. This game is not fun. It isn't enjoyable. It brings nothing to the table. It's just broken and wonky. Units phasing through walls, shooting through walls, extreme lighting bugs and crashes to where I feel like a computer demon is clawing it's way out of my computer screen. The game doesn't have that "Hey I'm not the best game but I have enough charm to be fun" type of gameplay that 2 and Legends have. I am extremely disappointed with what was done to this franchise, and Stronghold 3 has made it so i will never buy anything full price from FireFly ever again.

the original stronghold game is one of my favourite city builder games but unfortunetly none of the follow ups matched this. could not get into this one unfortunetly, but maybe need to give it a few more hours.

Look, ever since Crusader I, Firefly studio has been taking steps backward. This is the worst. Literally every single part of this game is bad. There is not a single part that I can say was enjoyable AT ALL. So bad.

so so bad....


SHC2, however, was pretty great. A HUGE step in the right direction to redeeming the Stronghold franchise.

Save your money, buy SHC2 instead. Or hey, SH and SHC HD remakes.

I am writing this review because I think there are too much negative reviews about the game.

I wouldn't say this game is bad, although in many aspects, it is not what we are used to have in other Stronghold games. It does have some bugs, and the one that is most common is troops stuck when you place a new buildings near them, and similar stuff... Still, same thing was happening in Crusader 1 and Stronghold 1 as well, with exception that in Crusader 1 this unit would disappear, or remain stuck on wall crenelation until the player does something to set him free.

Also, many complain how they cannot play with massive armies in multiplayer... Why do we need to play with so many troops? Can we play with smaller troops? We would make some smaller castles, and attack each other earlier with less troops... In the end - it is the same if me and my opponent have 50, or 500 troops. Still, I must admit that I wasn't playing it in multiplayer much, and those games I started - I did face the lag, but I cannot say I have some powerful computer, so I do assume that is the reason why I had those problems. For this reason I decided to play only multiplayer games 1v1 on smaller maps, but it doesn't have to do much with the game itself - it's because of my PC... Also, I hope that we should be able to play multiplayer games with less troops and less buildings, and still, to have the fun. :) In fact, that is another challenge! Try to make your economy efficient as much as possible with less buildings. :)

The other thing about Stronghold 3 is the fact that I was reading some reviews before buying Stronghold 3, and I knew there wouldn't be skirmish, and I knew there are still those bugs - so I got the game with low expectations. :) So, when I got the game, I was only looking at those good things of the game, and still, there are more good parts, and those bad ones.

Nevertheless, it is not an excuse, and I am also sad that Firefly gave up this game, and that they didn't work on it a little more to fix those few remaining bugs.

I would also like to add that it is Stronghold 3 in which Firefly introduced some new interesting things such as: building walls in all possible directions, and putting any buildings wherever I want and rotate it however I want; special abilities of some troops, such as men at arms: they made spearmen more useful this way, etc... Also, I like it more how a castle looks in Stronghold 3 than how it looks in other Stronghold games - here castles are more natural, but that is only a matter of taste I guess.

Among those new stuff I do dislike how they made troops just leave the barracks - peasants do not need to walk to the barracks... This is something that could be exploited even in some campaign missions! I also dislike how they made the siege camps just like in Stronghold 2. One doesn't need to bring the engineers (and to protect them from the enemy) to construct mass of catapults in the middle of nowhere.

I only want to say that besides its bad reputation Stronghold 3 is not that bad as they say - it is a good game, and we do have to admit that with this game Firefly gave us something new! I am sure that if the game wasn't published too early, they would have done it way better.
1. there would be less things to be fixed in patches, and
2. Stronghold fans wouldn't be so much driven away from the game after their first impressions, although it is bad that Stronghold 3 doesn't offer skirmish mode. (I guess that they had though/hoped it would be as good to us as Stronghold 1 was without skirmish mode, but in year 2011 we were expecting nothing less that a game with skirmish mode.)

Sadly, that bad reputation Stronghold 3 got was almost certainly the reason why they gave up Stronghold 3, and why they left some more things to be fixed... Even if they made a perfect game afterwards, little people would get it. Little people would be playing it, there wouldn't be much of those who would recommend it to someone, little people would be buying it...

Still, even though I am recommending this game, my advice would be: don't get this game with high expectations, and still, you should have fun playing it. :) Also, I don't think it is worth 27,99€ - don't rush when buying it, you should be able to find a retail version for less, or you could wait from some sale at Steam, and to get it for less money.

Not even launch. Crashes at start.

As I read in others reviews, there are about nothing worthy I missed.

Just don't buy this game, even on sale. Buy something else.

This is not what I expected it to be. I was expecting something more like Age of Empires, but this is a mission based version of age of empires.

Overall this is a good game, but do some research on youtube before deciding to buy. I didn't do enough research and now I feel like I wasted money buying what I thought was something else.

It is (almost) so good!!! Stronghold 3 is a generally good game, It has a balanced system of progression and a good castle building system; but, the lack of skirmmish may be a deal-breaker for many. That's right, this game has no skirmmish. Except for some (generic) campaigns and a tutorial, this game has NO singleplayer. So if you don't have some reliable friends I would sadly not recommend this game, but I you have a network of friends and they have this game, you could have a LOT of fun.

This game is a joke.

I'm a big fan of the Stronghold Series but I can not find any single positive aspect in the third part.
The new building system is kind of annoying, you can't even set straight walls so there is no way to build a symetric castle.
The spots where the walls stick to another are buggy as well.

Even the titlescreen looks horrible and contains nothing but a ♥♥♥♥ty yellow background and a guy who is looking at you like a crazy old ♥♥♥♥♥♥.
It is just a bad Stronghold 2 with less features like the Tortureguild, the punishments, the treasury and so on...
Tannery is also not included anymore , so to recruit some Crossbowmen you just have to produce Crossbows - that's it.
This is taking so much of the well done complexity of Stronghold 2 wich led the player to do more thoughtful actions.
Now it is just a clumsy 'cut some wood here, produce this and that there' until i got a little army walking towards to the ugly enemy castle.

The campaign is boring and the ''cutscenes'' are loveless images of black and white figures talking about war and revenge.
The gameplay itself is uncomfortable, you feel that the engine is not good at all after playing for a few seconds.
After all this stuff they also left out the skirmish mode wich have ever been the heart and soul of Stronghold.

I am totally disappointed and would recommend to everybody who is thinking about buying this to do not.

It could do with more easily accessible explanations of buildings, like a hover tooltip. Can't really fault it for anything else. Lots of fun.
