Im consideing buying this game, should I?
The game looks interesting. I am looking for some reviews and or reasons why I should or should not buy this game. I have not played the first 2 and have no idea of the mechanics, which is good because i like surprises from unique games. Anyways, is it buggy, broken, fun, unique???? post your opinions

to be completly honest, this game is the worst of them, the 2nd had a skrimish mode and a lot less bugs than this, i dont hate the game but its isnt worthy of the stronghold title, crusader and 2 are both great never tried out legends and the first was pretty fun but that was years ago. i strongly recomend you get the pack with the first 4 games. this one is just way to clunky

edit: its unique, but not nearly as fun as others, and semi broken,

I haven't played any of the Stronhold games before, so i don't know if they are better. But I think this game is great!

The main hate about the game is that there i no Skirmish. However, rumors tell of modders making a skirmish mode for Stronghold 3 as we speak. For now, if you like campaigning, making stuff on editor, and doing whatever the heck you want on Free Build, then this is your game.

this game is terrible, you would be better of with the 10 year old strongholds crusader or even original stronghold 1.

Please, dont get tempted by the flash sale, you will regret it.

Well this game is a freaking sad creation, I really can't understand how you can fail so hard making a game. First time I tryed it I just wanted to cry, they really destroyed a really good series. I FREAKING loved crusader, stronghold 2 was pretty good aswell. But srsly dont buy this peice of ♥♥♥♥...

EDIT: To clarify why I think it is bad. The game is fundamentally broken, you can't build stuff in a propper way (like places that is flat and should work doesnt work), the AI is completely ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ and simply is just very broken. The graphics are really sad, the first stronghold game that came out 10 years ago looks better (imo).

Sorry to say, but this game really is bad. Stronghold 1, although ugly, is much, much better than this.
As said above, really sad they butchered this. My advice; spend your money elsewhere.

You're saying it like if those were bad games...

Anyways, i would recommend buying Stronghold 2 and not Stronghold 3. Stronghold 3 got kinda much the worst launch for a game ever. I think it would be pretty fun if anyone believed they could join a multiplayer match. But whenever i try to join a multiplayer match, theres only like me and 2 other guys in the matchmaking lobby. That's kind of sad :-(

Well, i would just say that Stronghold 2 is more fun.

Yes if you have enough friends. Like i said in the post above, you wont be able to get anyone else than people you arranged it with to join.

Go out and by one or two of the other stronghold games.

you should get yourself some Stronghold 2 and Stronghold Legends ;)

Shooting myself in the face would be much more enjoyable than this game.

The game is good, but there are a lot of bugs and Firefly will not be fixing them.
