Stronghold is a real time strategy game in a medieval time period full of war. Stronghold was released way back in 2001 while this chap, writing this, was at uni studying video game design. Sigh, times change. Anyway. . .
Stonghold saw later released Stronghold Crusader and Stronghold Kingdoms that are the same basic set-up as the original but with minor shifts in the gameplay.
The games are all about creating a realistic sense of medieval warfare. They do a fantastic job of creating deep strategy. You’ll have to monitor your finances and at times negotiate with the enemy, but mostly you’ll be killing people in battles. And who doesn’t enjoy doing that?
