Stronghold is a strategy game. It is realistic and the storyline is compelling . The gameplay is real-time and it he setting is in the 11th century of England. Stronghold offers different game modes to choose from. You may play multiplayer and interact with human/AI opponents. What I enjoy most in this game is one can create and design their own castles. I find it really creative that they have different accessory materials for construction. Once you are done with your castle you will then have to train your army because your victory depends on the skills of your soldiers. They are the ones in charge to protect your kingdom. The more victories you gain, the more supplies you will get and that will enlarge your territory. You are the commander of your kingdom therefore you have to make sure you acquire sufficient resources and attend the needs of your people, both your army and your residents. If you do not like playing missions, Stronghold has free build game mode in which you can create and modify your own castle without having to finish missions.


  • You can create and design your own castle
  • Train and lead your people to ensure victory
  • Create new maps depending on how you want it


  • The graphics are no longer in fashion

If you are a real-time strategy enthusiast, then you should try Stronghold. Although, I think this game is a bit old since it was released a number of years ago, I still find this game very enjoyable, and its gameplay is not that boring. It has different types of game modes and campaigns that make this game more interesting and exciting. In this game, your focus is to conquer your enemies, but before you make a move, you need to have sufficient resources first and expand your armies, so you will have enough units to fight. Most importantly, you need to have a deep strategy to defeat your enemies. For me, the graphics are not that striking anymore because we all know that there are new RTS games out there that have a better graphics than this one, but gameplay-wise, it is undoubtedly one of the finest RTS that I have ever played. Overall, Stronghold is a classic real-time strategy game that never gets old. You just keep coming back and play this game more.


  • It has different game modes and campaign
  • Its gameplay is easy to learn


  • Its graphics is a bit outdated



Manage and protect your territory as you go back to medieval times

I am fond of real-time strategy games because of the freedom it gives its players. You build a town or manage a territory with the goal of protecting it from your enemies. It is more exciting when you get to defeat or hold off your adversaries using your well-thought strategy. These are some of the points I considered when I chose to play Stronghold. Personally, I prefer building my town and castle rather than repairing an existing one. I find chopping trees, making weapons and mining interesting and fun. Also, there are plenty of weapons to choose from which is great. You just need to adjust your troops during the game depending on how your enemies strategize on attacking your caste. On the other hand, constructing walls is another thing. It is quite annoying. It is mainly because of the isometric view that gives you the difficulty of seeing the gaps in your work. This will pose a big problem since the enemies can easily enter your territory and cause major havoc. Overall, Stronghold is a pretty neat game that I think everyone will enjoy.

  • Choose from different campaigns and game types


  • Certain buildings are not available for some missions
