Product Description

Stronghold HD updates the classic castle building game from Firefly Studios with high definition graphics, allowing generals to view an entire battlefield on a single screen. With 21 missions to test your mettle and four renegade lords to defeat, it is up to you to reunite medieval England. Missions range from breaking sieges and capturing enemy castles to raising gold and holding off enemy attacks. Also featured is an economic campaign, with missions revolving around gathering resources and building weapons within a time limit.

Are your peasants revolting? Well if you don't look after them they will be! As a Lord you will need to build up enough resources to keep your population happy and your taxes paid. Making sure your subjects have a house to sleep in, food on the table and a job to do is vital for keeping them happy and maintaining your popularity rating. A decent supply of ale and a small amount of entertainment will also help! Don't forget the Ale. Your villagers all like a drink.

With new high resolution graphics players also have more control over their soldiers than ever before. The new HD battlefield view allows you to zoom out and play in real-time, with the whole map on one screen. Advance on the castle gates while flanking the enemy from behind, feign retreat and lead your foe into a deadly trap or just sit back and watch the destruction unfold.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Game March 28, 2013
By Whedon
Verified Purchase
Having never played the original pre-HD version, I have nothing to offer regarding how it translates to HD. I was surprised, honestly, by how much I'm enjoying this satisfying RTS. Most RTS's don't stack up to my personal favorite, Age of Mythology, and while this also falls short of that (really, everything does), it has kept me playing and engaged for many hours so far. The game tutorial was more than adequate to teach me the ropes. The campaigns can be challenging and I've had to attempt some of the military campaigns 3 or 4 times to learn from and correct my mistakes in order to advance to the next scenario. There seems to be plenty of content for the price, as I have yet to even begin the economic campaign. (I have not tried this on Windows 8 but runs well on Windows 7).

5.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Classic February 19, 2014
By Don J.
Verified Purchase
Wow, this game is just an absolute masterpiece. Its gameplay is seemingly simple, yet truly is dynamic and will keep you interested for ages. This can be picked up by anyone and within 30 minutes they'll understand everything about the game.

I find Stronghold to be one of the most relaxing games out there to play. Building your castle, improving your economy, and making an army are all essential to success, yet nothing seems too pressing as seen with other games. I've never thought much of a soundtrack in any video game, but this is an exception. The medieval soundtrack really helps to make it a truly tranquil experience, and puts you right back in the middle ages.

Although not on par to today's standards in regard to graphics, I still feel that there is an element of beauty to the scenery. Green grass, waterfalls, wildlife, and of course a magnificent castle are all something to marvel at. It's just really fun, and great if you have some time to kick back. Only caveat I can think to say is to make sure to be aware of the time. There's been a few instances where I thought I'd just get a quick session in, but when I exit the game I'm shocked to learn that hours have flown by.

With a price of $6, you can't go wrong. Stronghold has a lot to offer, and should keep you entertained for hours on end.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this game! June 1, 2013

I have played this game for a week now and have to give it 5 stars. This is a game that
you can completely get lost in. For $5.99 this was a bargain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the original, and this made it even better! February 8, 2014
Stronghold was the game that introduced me to RTS. It opened Warcraft 1, 2, and 3 to my eyes, plus things like Age of Empires, Age of Mythology, the Civilization games and many more.

I owe my RTS love to this game. Now in HD, it's even better. I lost my original game and downloaded this expecting greatness. I got something even better in return. If you like RTS that isn't just about battle, this game is for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad November 13, 2013
Verified Purchase
this game is pretty fun, the price is right for what you get. I do have a few problems with it though. Every time I go to the map editor to make my own siege the game crashes and the level difficulty jumps way too high all of a sudden on one of the siege levels. other than these issues it's a pretty good deal for $6 or $7
