Great elaboration there mate. Why? I'm considering purchasing this, but hearing that it 'is a total disaster' is not helpful.

Well it is full of bugs guys! for example i couldn't place wall at all, units are stupid and out of control. Its very frustrating! i played it for few hours and quit, uninstalled it. This is one of my favorite game series but Stronghold 2 is quite something comparing to this believe me. Take a look to find similar comments like main, i think you'll find a lot of them. I don't know if this can be fixed by update or something.

have the bugs that gave the game such a low metascore at release perhaps been fixed rendering those scores moot? or is it just a bad game without the bugs?
lord_lobster Dec 28, 2012 @ 8:23am 
bug's were the worst part, the game it's self isnt great but its good imo. patches did fix alot but there are a few bugs

Lol, I remember seeing the metacritic page on the game's page but now it's gone..seems that devs don't want people to know how bad this game is.

'Is it playable now?'
Yes when I'm sufficiently bored with other games and willing to risk an hours play only to have to go back to a savegame because my Lord won't attack a bandit hacking him to death. Very disappointed with the game. I'll watch for patches but will certainly be less inclined to by any more. I have all the previous Stronghold games upto on disk. Publishers don't deserve business when they put Beta out as Gold. Shameful.

I'd say you all are better off Playing Stronghold, Crusader, Legends or 2 or anything aside from 3 really.

So like is this game any good ?

The biggest knock against this game has been that it has no skirmish mode. As far as I know, that has not been added in any patches. Nor do they plan on adding it.

Fabittar, you're sounding like a troll. Use grammar, spell out your words, and be constructive rather than insulting.

If the bugs are the only thing wrong with this game, it might not be so bad. I was considering purchasing, as well, but I'm not finding a lot of full reviews on the discussion boards.

I noticed no metacritic link on the store page too and wondered about that since the game has been out for a while. There have been plenty of games I liked that got panned by critics, but It's still worth looking at why a game gets a bad review. In this case it's bugs, not misinformed reviewers.

I'd like a castle building sim, but appreciate the info other players have provided and will save my money. Thank you.
