Stronghold the original is an absolute classic. Stronghold 2 is a good
follow up but doesn't have the flair of the original. It has a wider more
expansive game play and fix's some of the flaws in the original. The player
must establish the their town quickly as the town rating system now has more
inputs and can initially be challenging to balance but later becomes annoyingly
easy to max out. The military controls and options are the same as the original
and really needed to be fine tuned. The Map editor on 1 was one of the best
ever made for a RTS but the editor in 2 is absolute rubbish!
The others in the pack seem rushed and don't compare to 1 or 2. But its
still a good buy because 1 is incredible and 2 is pretty good.
