What Gamespot Users have to say about Stronghold 3

  • Rating:4

    Its the worst of its series. It has problems that even the first stronghold didn't have.

    Although the game has some new good features such as rotating of building before you place them , so you can fit them even in a diagonal place, it gets really annoying from pretty early on. The bad graphics reall... Read Full Review

    Really sad how the series went down from an epic game to this. I rated 6.5 to give the game a boost up only

    as stated above, I really loved the SH series since I was little. I have very great memories playing the multiplayer along side with my brother and friends against strangers or even big multiplayer friends party. Sadl... Read Full Review

    Great game. Dont mind the other reviews.

    First off, this isn't a RTS game, its a blend, from a civ sim to rts and it's done perfectly,(those who played previous strongholds know this), and as such the missions 'timeline' isnt of those of a rts game (i.e. fast p... Read Full Review

    Weak game, from what was a good game in the past.

    Too bad this rating can not go negitive, LESS THAN ZERO! I would like to give this game a good review, But upon installing this (alleged) game, Firewall blocked it as a VIRUS! I was a long time fan of this series, Bu... Read Full Review

    Caveat emptor

    This is quite possibly the most buggy and incomplete game ive seen in the last 10 years. Even after nine patches singleplayer still has quite a few bugs and multiplayer when it does happen to function is a ghost town. I... Read Full Review

    Stronghold 3 is a work in progress due to the patches, but it is one solid game that shouldn't be ignored.

    Stronghold 3 fell flat on its face when it initially released, but thanks to weekly patches, it is almost back on its feet. What caused the many, many, many bugs to go unrestrained, no one will ever know. But enough ... Read Full Review

    LESSON LEARNED,

    One thing is for sure, I will NEVER ever buy a game without trying a demo first. The screen shots looked so good and all the hype on it which made me purchase it. Where's the skirmish? Where is the maps? The maps they ... Read Full Review

    Wast of time

    I played stronghold 1 and 2 and i remembered it was fun to play, perhaps a bit boring but still the concept itself was something i like, similar to say civilization, or maybe closer to warcraft. As it was the 3rd franchi... Read Full Review

    Don't let the early reviews bring you down...

    It's raining outside and you sit staring out the window wondering when there will be a break in the weather and what you can do in the meantime. You have an affinity for medieval time frame based games...and still you w... Read Full Review
