Summary - THERE IS NO CUSTOM SKIRMISH WITH AI
The above title is all you really need to know. This was the first game of the downfall of the brilliant Firefly Studios Stronghold serious. This game lacks content, and is the slowest and most boring Stronghold I've ever played. I have played every stronghold that has come out apart from the newest Stronghold Crusader 2. This game does not have a Custom Skrimish mode, the economic campaign has about an hour-long playthrough and the rest of the campaigns I didn't even bother to try to finish with.
The Good -
The only merit this game has is the Free Build, and you have to download the map editor to this game SEPARATELY. The graphics look nice and polished, the lighting is decent and that's about it.
The Bad -
Simply put, this game is half-♥♥♥♥♥. The music, the voices, the buildings and even some of the characters are ripped from the other strongholds. The largest map in Stronghold 2 is the smallest map you can make in Stronghold Crusader (I'm dead serious). The game sucks your PCs performance despite there being 1/100 of the amount of stuff to process compared to the Total War games. MULTIPLAYER LOBBYS ARE DEAD.
