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

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Bad pathfinding and bugs, glitches, and hell knows what else beyond comprehension plague this game. I have gotten hours of enjoyment out of it, but that was only because I am a die-hard stronghold fan. Anything less will find no enjoyment in this game, only the frustration of trying to get not everything, but ANYthing at all to work the way you want it to. There are only 2 solid points to this game - the graphics and the gridless building system, both of which are the best in the series as of the time of this review. The military units don't behave properly and have minimal AI on their own...there IS no AI for enemy opponents whatsoever, meaning more often than not they sit there doing ♥♥♥♥all until you go to them instead, there are massive game-breaking glitches with the physics and pathfinding, and the multiplayer servers are so god awful that they had to slap a 150 troop limit and 125 building limit (INCLUDING TOWERS AND GATEHOUSES) into the multiplayer to make it barebones functional and you can still expect massive lag left and right - not computer lag, but network lag where the whole game will slow to a crawl.

Want the bonuses of a 3D stronghold game that doesn't suck and has functional multiplayer? Go get crusader 2.

Otherwise just get ANY game in the series besides this one. This is the ONLY game in the entire series that I would not recommend, as it is the only one that provides more frustration than it does fun - the next worst in the series falls to Stronghold Legends, which is not nearly as bad as this and is easily playable and enjoyable.

Buy it only for less than 5 bucks. It's a nice game, but the most important part is missing: no skirmish mode. There are no "free battles" vs AI, only historical stuff, what most users don't look for. Online Multiplay is also not, what most ppl look for in a game like this, so the most interesting part of Stronghold 1 and 2 is missing!

Stronghold 1 was one of the first games I ever played, and I loved it. Crusader added so many great things which I also loved, and I had high hopes for Stronghold 2. Unfortunately, it sucked. Then 3 comes along and I had hoped that it would redeem itself from 2, but it fails miserably. I could go into detail about how and why, but I don't think it's worth my time.

If you want to play a worse version of Stronghold 1, go for it.
