[Game] Stronghold: Crusader

Stronghold CrusaderStronghold 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.

Positive: Negative:
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
