Started Bad, then got worse.


I played this game years ago with version 1 and thought I’d give version 3 a try. BAD IDEA. It’s so buggy it’s unplayable. The graphics are nothing like the Trailer videos and the frame rate is a joke. There are even advertised features that are NOT in the game. SO, I tried to email the company to see what my options were. Guess what? Their Email Support Portal is BROKEN! Yes that’s right. They can’t even program their email to work! I tried to follow up via Facebook and saw another user had posted the same problem a MONTH earlier! As far as I could see they had never replied to his post. Firefly Studios doesn’t even have the game on their website anymore. Can’t find 7Sixty. And MissingLink Games are, well, missing. Don’t waste your money on this terrible terrible game or this terrible terrible company.



I used to play Stronghold Crusaider when I was younger, that game was awesome. Saw this and figured it would be the same or better since it was made after Crusaider. Disappointed for sure, no skirmish option, campaign is terribly written, finally the gameplay is incredibly frustrating. The difficulty comes from stupid units not from challenging senarios. Still searching for a good RTS that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Why do game designers only re-release bad games?!

Crash, crash, crash


I loved the old original Stronghold and was looking forward to this version. It’s crashed three times from the Options screen and I couldn’t even get three steps into the Tutorial before it crashed again. A game isn’t worth $9.99 if you can’t play it because it keeps crashing.
