Stronghold is a castle building strategy game for Windows PCs.

If you're looking for some old school medieval strategy game fun, Stronghold might be right up your alley. It offers lots of challenges, as well as the exciting battles you expect in a game of its calibre.

The purpose behind Stronghold is twofold - build up your lands and defend them in battles. You gain lands through a mixture of smart in-game economics and by winning battles with other neighboring kingdoms. The spoils you get from winning wars can help you purchase supplies to expand your own castle and kingdom.

Other lords might want your land in Stronghold too though, so expect to have to defend your acquisitions in battle as well. Who among your people you choose to have fight, as well as what strategies you employ during the war, will determine the outcome of the battle.

Stronghold is fun to play if you have the patience for this type of game. Unfortunately, the game is a little buggy and freezes up sometimes. The graphics are also quite outdated compared to other available games.

Stronghold is a fun strategy game that lets players step into the shoes of a medieval lord.

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
