    Fantastic,it's a terrific strategic game.

    It's one of the best strategic game I have ever played. If you don't consider the graphics it will be great. I think the gameplay is good,but in general it's a very good game specially if you like strategic games. It'... Read Full Review

    Great gameplay, extremely addictive, non stop arrow pumping action!

    This game just about takes the cake, Firefly really knows how to make a great game off the 2D engine but then again I'm more old school and prefer that engine. All these new games with the 3D engine don't really please m... Read Full Review

    not revolutionary and innovative like original stronghold; but new features are very fun

    This is a great castle RTS for the low price you pay 10$. The graphics could use some help but consider how old the game is and the low level of computer requirements to play. Another great thing is the amount of games i... Read Full Review

    Tis game is interesting but very chalenging at times

    I play the game for the sake of it and if you're a serious person I would not recommend it. it is unrealistic in the way of the time it takes to make I items like Bows for Archers. how in the world could it take 6 months... Read Full Review

    Great game! It kills like a lion. One of the best RTS gams I've played. Yeah!

    Stronghold Crusader is awesome! When I played this it was an upgrade from earlier strategy games I had played (like Age of Empires). Yeah, I got mad at first, but only because there was a learning curve at first. I got o... Read Full Review

    Simply one of the best Historical RTS

    Stronghold Crusader mixes the fun of a combat style RTS such as Age of Empires with the depth of a city building game such as Pharaoh or Caesar. 1. Gameplay - The game has been set up in Arabia around the city of Jeru... Read Full Review

    A good game many should have but don't.

    I've had this game for what? 3 years now. Still a good game. Just plain fun. I've spent hours playing this game and it never gets old. If you don't have it, at only $10 how can you go wrong? The Crusader Trail (Campain) ... Read Full Review

    S:C Brief

    This was a LAN favorite for quite some time back in the day. We had many awesome battles fighting over the small barren maps. However, once we learned the ropes, it was quite often a stalemate between human players, and ... Read Full Review

    A very addictive and fun RTS!

    When I first played Stronghold: Crusaders, I didn't like the game because I felt it was too complex and boring, then again I was 9 so that could have been part of the the problem. I picked up the game again a few years ... Read Full Review
