One of the biggest letdowns of my life. I was looking forward to this because I am a big fan of the Stronghold franchise, and when I was led to believe that Firefly was finally going back to their roots and cutting the gimmicks, the reviews for this game begin to reel out and that was where my disappointment begun to happen. It's just so horribly put together compared to older Stronghold titles to the point where any longtime Stronghold fan would find it absolutely cringeworthy. There's also this issue where if you redirect a unit's goal location, they pause for a brief moment before continuing to the newly-directed location, no other Stronghold game does this and it's absolutely infuriating.
It's a lot better now than it was at release, though. They managed to patch up a lot of problems, but the damage has already been done. It's been said that this game's bad release is due to Firefly Studios being forced to release before it was finished by their publisher.
If you're new to the Stronghold franchise you'll probably find more enjoyment in this than I, otherwise just buy Stronghold Crusader HD on Steam, you'll get a much better experience.
