About This Game

Stronghold 3 is the long-awaited third installment in the award winning castle-building series. Set 10 years after the original, the Wolf it seems, has cheated death and during his painful recovery he’s become even more bitter and twisted. Now he seeks revenge. Raiding villages and towns during the dead of night, the Wolf has created a tide of panic and you and your allies are the only force that stand against him. In this stunning new update to the world’s favorite Castle Sim - will you triumph by day or die by night?

Key features:

  • Build and manage mighty castles with an improved building system allowing unprecedented levels of realism and intricacy
  • Realistic physics and cutting-edge graphics make siege warfare more brutal than ever.
  • Watch your village spring to life in an amazing depiction of medieval village life
  • Story-driven gameplay engages players across two campaigns: combat or economic
  • Dramatic night time sieges add a new dimension to the Stronghold franchise
  • Besiege other players’ castles or defend your own in a range of action-packed online multiplayer modes
  • Attack or defend accurately re-created castles from the pages of history. Will you succeed where others failed?

I don't understand what all the complaining is about, the bugs will be fixed and so far I haven't dealt with any. The game is fun to play there is many ways to win battles and multiplayer is a plus

The bugs are minimal now, but still present in many areas. The campaign is relatively short and a little repetitive at times. Most importantly there is no skirmish mode meaning that the game has little to no replayability. Any of the previous stronghold games are leagues better than this.

It's really not a bad game. I really love how you can put your buildings basically anywhere. The graphics are pretty good and the lighting is amazing (in my book.) If this game didn't have the title "Stronghold" it wouldn't have that bad of reviews. Though, since this is a Stronghold game, the thing that I miss is the villagers. They were so voiced and actually commented on things you did, now this game does too, but I click on a villager like 10 times and he still says, "Morning your lordship." I even had a villager say one time that he was eating so much that he was getting fat. Since when did people back then care about getting fat? lol I don't know, it just feels like they don't really appreciate what I'm doing for them.


Pros:

So everything was right when I read about this game being an unfinsihed, unplayable piece of junk.

What should they care anyways? Stronghold Kingdoms probably nets them all their money. Why bother with their other products quality?

just don't buy it. Don't believe me? Look up what other people have to say.
