Product Description

The Crusades were over. The perils of the dark ages were barely passing. It was the best of times and the worst of times. The Middle Ages spanned 1066 to 1485AD and spawned legends of King Arthur, Robin Hood, and many others. The life of all the classes was dominated by the feudal system. Romanticism, greed, magic, dominance and gut survival blended amidst feudal battles from one castle to another. The Feudal System was introduced to England following the invasion and conquest of the country by William The Conqueror. The Normans from the time they first settled there around 900AD had used the system in France. It was a simple, but effective system, where all land was owned by the King. The largest portion was kept by the King as his personal property, some was given to the church and the rest was leased out under strict controls. The King allowed those he could trust to lease land. These became Barons. They were wealthy, powerful and had complete control of the land they leased. You're a Baron. The Stronghold Collection brings together five games from the critically acclaimed real-time strategy (RTS) series that allows players to conquer the Middle Ages. The Stronghold series has become one of the most popular dynamic castle building sim games in the world, combining the finest aspects from the city builder and RTS genres. Prepare yourself for a back-in-time visit to the Middle Ages and see how your expertise, wile, and guile help you survive or fail.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stronghold: Only half worth it. August 26, 2011
By Amos
Verified Purchase
First off, before I downloaded this game about 2months ago, I had never played a Stronghold Game. However, when I downloaded it I decided to play the games from 1st to last. The odd part is is that I HATE games with poor graphics BUT the first 2 games were VERY fun. Even though they had poor graphics I preferred them over the newer releases of this game simply because I love the medieval aspect of the originals. I wasn't a fan of stupid music and dragons in the last 2 releases (I'm a huge fantasy fan but these dragons just didn't cut it for me).
All in all, I would say if you loved the medieval feel and play style of the Age of Empires games then you'll love the first 2 installments of this game! However if you're not a fan of RTS (Real Time Strategy) games or if you don't enjoy building ancient cities, defending them from invaders, or otherwise creating a wonderfully prosperous community, than this game just isn't for you ^^

I gave this game a 4/5 stars because I LOVED the games. Just really hated the crappy portrayal of a fantasy world filled with bad music and worse dragons in the later installments.

*If you're wondering what games were/weren't good:
The original "Stronghold" + "Stronghold Crusader" + "Stronghold Crusader Extreme" were all very good and felt very authentic.
The "Stronghold Legends" and later installments were bad and just felt overall, cheap and lost that good old medieval feeling I so much enjoyed in the earlier versions.

So if you're going to get these games, I personally would stay away from the newer ones and go for the older classics. But if you're a die-hard Stronghold fan than this really couldn't be a better game for you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Detailed review of each release September 21, 2011
By Edward
Verified Purchase
Stronghold Collections gives you four different releases of Stronghold all in one for $20, which is an excellent deal. All versions are released by Firefly Studios and all are safe for tweens. Each version has both an economic campaign and a combat campaign. All are Real Time Strategy games, based around the concept of a strong medieval castle defense. In virtually every campaign combat mission you are either defending or besieging a castle, only rarely do you both start with your own castle.

The versions are all similar in that you have to gather resources, which you can use to build your defenses and also manufacture armaments to create more combat units. There is no fog of war, which I found refreshing and a good change from normal RTS fare, but some might find the ability to see everything on the entire map unnerving.

I advise avoiding the Steam compilation at any price.

There are some minor annoyances that exist in the entire series, such as the minimap being virtually useless, but, overall, the Stronghold series is a very good RTS with hundreds of hours of gameplay across four versions of the game.

On the other hand, there are some amazing positives that run throughout the series, like a very strong defense that does not need micromanaging while you concentrate on your attack. I could find no software bugs nor memory leaks in any of the versions, and the game ran perfectly, even on low-end machines and laptops. Path finding was mostly acceptable.

The modes of your soldiers - stand ground, defensive and aggressive, seem to work well. Most versions of the game seem to support a virtually unlimited number of soldiers, unlike an artificial population cap most games have. In one game I had over 1,000 troops!

1.0 out of 5 stars Download doesn't work January 4, 2013
Verified Purchase
I used to play this game a couple of computers ago, and really loved the strategic building and tame-by-modern-standards warfare. So much so that I was willing to chance the inconclusive verdict from the user reviews as to whether this would work on a Windows 7 64-bit machine. It doesn't. I can recommend the Stronghold game itself for others like me that don't need to have almost lifelike graphics to enjoy a game, but only purchase this if you are using a computer with an older operating system, Vista or earlier.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love these games and DRM free to boot December 28, 2012
Verified Purchase
Sure they are older, but these are some of the greatest economy games I have ever played. I originally purchased these from Direct to Drive, but when they got bought by GameFly, the titles got yanked. They said that they may be available again, but couldn't give me a release date.

I came over to amazon and they had the whole collection DRM free. This is the first game I bought from Amazon that is digital download, and I am hooked.

The games in this collection are great if you like economy games. They are older so the system requirements are less, in fact play these on my little 11z laptop that has a hard time playing minecraft.

If you like economy games or tactical war games, you will like these. If you don't like setting up an economy and doing things like hanging or stoning peasants, sending hundreds of archers and knights to defeat the Noble who happens to live next to you, or setting up shop in a rocky valley to ambush an incoming invasion .. you probably don't want these.
