Stronghold 2

Stronghold 2 – One of the best strategy game

stronghold 2 fortress

The story is simple; you’re a lord with a fragmented kingdom. To unfragment it you must build and fight your way through a 21 mission campaign. The campaign pits you and your bakeries, blacksmiths, towers, archers, macemen, pikemen, knights, trebuchets, and catapults against the four renegade lords. Yeah, the story is thin, but the game is a bit thicker.

Stronghold is not just another real-time strategy game. Neither is that statement an unqualified endorsement. No, Stronghold doesn’t strictly adhere to the time tested, build and conquer, real-time strategy formula–its castle building and management routines are deeper than that. Neither, however, is the combat quite as exciting as a triple-A real-time strategy title. Nevertheless, the combination of the two makes for enjoyable gaming.

The graphics in this game are quite superb. Effects such as waterfalls cascading over cliffs on some maps and even simple things such as arrows streaking through the air are very well detailed. Visually speaking the game is spot on. Only did I see a few issues here and there, such as animal units sometimes looking as if they had been chopped in half when running through small streams. Alas, what are beautiful graphics without the sound to go along with them?

Again, too many games skimp out on things such as sound and go straight for things that sell, such as killer graphics. Well thankfully, the guys at Fire Fly did not let me down in this department either. They really went at it with the musical score and sound effects. It all works together and fits in how it should. At least you don’t hear music that doesn’t go with the time period as I have seen with other titles based somewhat on history. So, what else does this game have to offer?

Another nice thing is that it contains hours of replayability. It is not a title that gets tossed aside as other ones come into your collection. The online play and map editor features, I think, give credibility to this statement. Was there anything I didn’t like about the game?

The playing is fairly straightforward. You build hovels that attract peasants. The peasants in turn cut and gather wood, mine stone, and provide food for themselves. The collected resources are processed and then used to build additional structures. More often than not, the buildings dictate what your peasants do. For example, build a hunter’s hut and some peasants will begin hunting deer. Erect a woodcutter’s hut and the nearby peasants will chop trees.

It is here that the economic portion of the game gets interesting. You must have an army to defend your castle, but if you strip away too many peasants your economy will suffer. If the economy takes a downturn, you’ll need to raise taxes to fund the army. Unfortunately, raising taxes ruins your popularity and makes it harder to rule the city. Of course you can build churches, which attract priests who bless the population, which makes them happier. By the same token, building taverns and selling beer can also make the people happy.

It’s challenging fun. Regrettably, the interface makes it more challenging than it need be. Players must navigate though layers of tabs to build their structures. Sometimes the structure’s location under the tabs makes little or no sense. For instance, the hunter’s hut is found under farm buildings. Go figure.

Eventually, the bad guys will come. When they do, you’ll beat them back with a wide variety of units. The baseline soldiers are pikemen and archers, but as the campaign unfolds knights, swordsmen, and others become available. It’s good fun to pour burning oil on would be castle-wall scalers, and a blast to watch archers take down rows of enemy troops. What’s missing are open field battles or in-depth tactics. You place your archers and burning oil on the wall; you kill the enemy troops. The knights need make an occasional foray to destroy enemy catapults and trebuchets. That’s about it.

Stronghold offers to take command of a horde of invaders or defenders of the fortress. Attackers in the role you will, by dint of cunning and strategy to tap into your arsenal to scan humans. In the role of defenders, you need to drill the intentions of the enemy to defeat his assaults until victory.

Stronghold does offer in-depth play options. There is the 21-mission military campaign, an economic campaign that stresses castle management, a sandbox mode, and numerous stand-alone scenarios that replicate famous medieval sieges. For those unhappy with the provided maps, Firefly even packaged a map editor with the game.

This is a good game, but not a great one. The excellent castle management and siege combat is tarnished by the cumbersome interface and mediocre real-time combat. Nevertheless, fans of city simulations and real-time strategy alike might want to give this one a look.

Goal:
For the attacker must be entered as soon as possible in the fortress. For the defender it is enough to delay the attacker and get the fame.

Turn the game

Wouldn’t you love to have your own castle? Tapestries hanging from the walls and drunken guards hanging from the battlements telling your besieging enemy that “Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries” in ‘Allo ‘Allo accents? Personally I have brought a little of that medieval style into my own abode. A moat, Iron Maidens on the lawn instead of gnomes and a drawbridge to park the Mondeo on.

A castle simulation is exactly that. Basically players get to build, defend, or siege a castle to their hearts content. However, Stronghold is much more than just that. Not only can you play combat-based missions, but also economic-based missions as well. When you first enter the game, it all becomes clear that there is a lot here to play.

I am pleased to say that there isn’t much to dislike about Stronghold. It is a very solid title that deserves much praise. I do recommend if you ever want to try something a tad bit different these days, try out this game, it won’t let you down.
