Is this game worth it?
I gotta say that I'm new to the Stronghold game, and I'd like to ask advice from others whether it is worth purchasing or not. It seems like a good game, but I'm not exactly sure.

I really enjoyed Stronghold 2. I know some people never really figured out how to play it effectively though. I will admit it is slightly complex at first, but I think once you get to know it the game really opens up

I think Stronghold 2 and 3 are terrible, its lacks the charm that was put out in the original games. I suggest that you buy Stronghold 1 because that is by far the most fun to play.

you should know that theres no skirmish mode and that the multiplayer is full of resyncs as soon your town growes. the campain is kind of fun but i dont know if thats the main reason you want to play stronghold. even in singelplayer theres problems, like units get stuck in buildings that have to be removed to control the unit again

correction:

stronghold CRUSADER is the best game in the franchise.

stronghold 2 = stronghold + crime and deseases + better graffics
stronghold 3 = stronghold + better graffics + lots of bugs

It's truly unbelievable that they thought a game like this could do well without a skirmisher. That's the backbone to a game like this.....build and fight. What a disappointment. It's even more comical that they haven't respond with an upgrade so we can skirmish. I guess I'll play another game and forget about stronghold.

Agreed!!!! Hands down, crusader is the best game in the franchise, and in MY opinion the best RTS to date.

Stronghold 3 was a huge dissapointment to me. Loved the other ones. 50 bucks for naught...

Dont buy stronghold 3 its basically stronghold 2 with less stuff and less things to do. Go for stronghold 2 and save yourself some money.

what are some solid RTS games you would suggest that are pretty affordable?

Try "Majesty" -- I was hooked nonstop when I got it. Billed as a fantasy sim, so it's a mix of RTS and sim city. Originally, I wanted somethiing like Towns but more polished and less micro building. Majesty, just build a temple and recruit some disciples then they will visit your stores, etc and march off to fight stuff. Lots of fun.
