Stronghold was one of the best real time strategy games I’ve ever played, so I was really pumped for the sequel, but what I got was just the same game all over again. There is nothing functionally wrong with it, and it’s still a blast to play, but they at least could have come up with a new story if all they decided to do with the game-play was add more terrain and three or four new units. I’ve seen more effort put into DLC these days.
|Beautiful hand-drawn 2D visuals||Almost no story|
|Good soundtrack||Defending castles is sometimes too easy while assaulting them is usually just tedious|
|Good real time strategy game-play||Just a rehash of the original game|
|Fun designing your own castle|
