Apps & Games content ratings on Softonic

Content ratings help you understand the type of content you might find in an app or game, so you can decide if they are suitable for you and your family.

What do the ratings actually tell me?

Content ratings describe the minimum age we feel the content is suitable for. It does not indicate that the app was specifically designed for that particular age, or if a certain level of skill is required to play the game or use the app.

Where can I find the content ratings?

You will find the content ratings on every app or game page.

Why are some apps or games unrated?

If an app or game does not have a rating, it means that it has not yet been rated, or it’s been rated and we’re working to update the page.

Rating Systems

Softonic uses the rating systems by PEGI and ESRB. The ratings you see may vary by country or region.

Become the lord of a medieval castle and fight for your land

Amber Sass

  • Lots of different options for varied gameplay
  • Easy to manage economy
  • Challenging castle building game
  • Relatively buggy
  • Dated graphics

Expand your lands while you build and fortify your citadel. Entertain with jousts, lavish feasts and tournaments with an iron fist and dispense medieval justice to your overworked and slovenly peasants. Stronghold 2 is the most accurate, amazing and dynamic depiction of siege-warfare and castle-life ever portrayed.

This is the story depicted in this excellent adventure: the King, having fled after the defeat of his armies, now attempts to rule his country from a secret location. It is not known if he is even in the country anymore. Now, powerful barons jostle for what is fast becoming a disintegrating kingdom. It is up to you to stem the tides of their ambition and unite the land under the King once again!

Take a look at what Stronghold 2 has to offer:

  • See the breathtaking medieval setting in beautiful 3D or choose from a variety of other views to survey your domain
  • Be Lord of a true-to-life medieval berg. Watch the falconers deal with the "rat problem", discover how man and pig lived side by side, see weavers, candle makers and ale wives go about their business
  • Hold great festivals such as jousting tournaments, feasts and dances and conduct public executions to keep peasantry in line
  • Brand new soldier types, siege weaponry and castle defenses
  • As lord, your gaze reaches far. Watch life inside castles and behind closed doors.
  • Earn valuable honor points and use them to rise through the ranks from humble serf to mighty duke
  • Non-linear interactive story unfolds as you decide which challenge to undertake next

"amazing RTS best of all time!"
