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?

During the Pre-release stage of this game, skirmishes were promised against AI or Human players; Steam even had the feature on the store page as well. After watching the DEV-team videos and listening to what they were "promising" I decided to pre-order it (pre-ordered it the day before it came out).

Fast Forward a day and stronghold 3 was released. The features that I had purchased this game for were missing from the in-game menu and when I got out to check the store page they had removed at least half of the bullet points for what this game was promising. Fraud?

The game itself is riddled with issues; path-finding, graphical mishaps, and the beloved soldiers mixed with wall syndrome. The skirmish is no longer a skirmish of any sort but a rather boring and pointless sandbox free-build mode where you build a glitched-out castle on one of 7 tiny maps.

The campaign itself is TERRIBLE. The cutscenes are storyboards, which they try to play off as art (something only BL2 was able to pull off without it seeming like the game was rushed and released without polish).

Dont buy this game. Dont buy any games from the criminals at Firefly, i wouldnt purchase this game for $0.50 and it was the last game I have or will ever pre-order. It's worth noting that after reading reviews of their newest "game" it appears that much of the same happened yet again. They simply cash in on a halfway decent game that was made 20 years ago without putting forth much effort to change or enhance anything. Terrible company, terrible games, and terrible ethics.

i loved stronghold 2, but this game is buggy and downright horrible. Troops can hack at walls with swords and knock them down, and there is no skirmish mode. I bought this game for $5, and I wouldn't get it again if you paid me. The AI for your troops is downright awful, as well. 0/5 would not recommend. I'm off to play SH2 and get the taste of this steaming turd out of my mouth.

-If you are a Stronghold fan, do NOT buy this game. The frustration is painful and not worth it.-

I have always been a Stronghold fan and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Stronghold, Stronghold 2, Stronghold Crusader or even Stronghold Legends to any of my friends. So of course I was biding my time until the game finally released and squandered $60 on it. I'd equate the anticipation level of buying it and actual gameplay akin to Duke Nukem Forever.

While there certainly are positives: the game is gorgeous when rendered and boasts a lot of new content. The basics that make the game flow and playable are the worst in the series. As much as I would like to rant as to how Firefly could botch a release so badly after having released a prior version, Stronghold Crusader Extreme, wherein the player could field an army of up to 10,000 troops and limitless buildings, I have no idea.

The number 1 issue that ruined the game for me was the slow replenishment of the player's campfire (distributable population) mixed with the prioritzation of industry over military. For instance if an opposing army kills the workers of any industry buildings beyond your walls, or even wolves for that matter, you will not be able to build any troops until the workers are replenished in the order that they were killed. Unfortunately that is just one glitch of many that should have been cleaned up during simple game testing.

Whoever was in charge of cleaning up this game ought to have used Lemon Pledge.

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."

I preordered this game for $50 and to date that is the most I have ever been robbed by a game purchase.

I remember watching and interview with the lead developer before the game came out where he expressed they'd learnt from all the fan feedback from stronghold 2... Apparently all they learnt from it was how to make a crappier game then their previous titles.

Stonghold 2 is not generally considered the favourite in the series, but comparing 3 to 2... 2 wins. 3 has absolutely no redeeming gameplay features. Visually it looks better (excepting personal taste) but even the lauded features like wall destruction physics which are nice to look at in actual fact make the gameplay much worse. I have never before played a game where the walls are hands down the worst place to position your archers... They will recieve no extended range, no cover, and are more vulnurable as they will fall to their death when the enemies weakest units chips down your stone walls in seconds with their daggers. Pretty much the opposite of a castle "sim".

The ecconomic sim is also suffered. Smaller maps and bigger building footprints means you can't construct a small castle town let alone a complex one. Clunkier interface, less building options, dumber AI (how do you even achieve that?) and all around less content makes this a step backwards from the series previous installments in pretty much ever single way except graphics rendering.

If I could get my money back I would because I don't think I have ever been more disapointed in a studio... This is the game that was the straw that broke the camels back as far as my personal policy on preordering games goes. As it stands I wont even consider getting stronghold 4 until it's been out for a year, has 8 out of 10 reviews and I've had the opertunity to try a demo.

I really don't know what Firefly was thinking releasing this....
If you have played Stronghold 2, then you already own/played a better game than this.
This is Stronghold 2, but missing all the good stuff.
Falcon Post: gone
Skirmish: Gone
Torture's Guild: Gone
Magistrates Office: Gone
Guard Post(for catching criminals): Gone
Sewer Pits: Gone
This list goes on...
If anything this is "Stronghold 1.1" NOT 3
Find a copy of Stronghold 2, before even giving 4.50$ for this. Not only will you enjoy the game, but its finished, with a ton more detail.
I hate having to give this game a bad review, I really love the Stronghold series. But, this is very close to a "facebook" game, it is lacking so much!

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.

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.

I still can't see why they couldn't at least update this game so you can build walls and gates in practical spots and all these pictures showing horizions and skies yet I've never been able to change my camera angle it makes the game (graphically anyway) look alot better than it is, it's very dissapointing I'm loving Crusader 2 but I still want to finish this campaign, they really need a major overhaul of this game. I wish I could recommend this game but I would be lying if I did. :(

Would have been more acceptable with the issues it has and the graphics if it was Early Access, since its a release the developers should feel ashamed at ruining a franchise like Stronghold. Add to that the fact that this is a 3 year old game and its still 29.99? Its nice that its ported to linux but would have been better if Stronghold: Crusader HD would be ported to linux, an all around better game.

This games problems are many and varied.The balance and AI are near nonexistent. The graphics are clunky and uncharming, the pathfinding is painful and sticky. This game lacks the charm and humor of the first game. Hopefully one day the king will return and a developer will create a proper sequel to the beloved first Stronghold

I find that this game, is unfinished at best. It has nice graphics and improved unit looks and even brought back some old enemies! But this game was VERY unfinshed, I like and I don't. Troop AI is just awful, people can hack down your walls, and no torture system? Archers and Crossbow Men can shoot THROUGH the walls. If you are really really really big fan of the Stronghold series, buy it. If you just got onto the series or are just a general player, go get Stronghold, Crusader, Legends, or Stronghold 2.

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.

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.
