The game is fun. It does require thinking especially when getting to the higher levels. I wish they made Stronghold Crusader for the Mac. Does anyone know if it will be made?

It will lock up on me sometime using Panther. Must be the system because WarCraft III does the same thing.

Does this thing support PC to Mac multiplayer? Just spent an hour trying to get the two to talk over tcp/ip...

What crap. in panther, it doesn't disable expose. So when you move your mouse to the lower right, upper right, or upper left to move the view around, expose kicks in and you can't see the game!

this game is over two years old now in august 2004. how could the developers have known to disable a feature that didn't exist in the os?

play it; it's a good game.

it's not the only game, and it can be frustrating at first, but if you play a game enough, and like a game enough, you will either figure out a macro to disable expose, or just do it manually before launching the game.

this game is okay, but the multi player support stinks, and it hardly works in Panther.

I have to admit, I don't know what the "anonymous" reviewer is talking about. Stronghold is a beautiful sim, very similar to Age of Empires but "zoomed in" so you can see the action better and you have to deal with the economy of the castle quite a bit more (ala Caesar III, etc.). Music and graphics are great. I just wish I could "freeze frame" when giving orders (ala Balder's Gate) because it's hard to control so many characters during a major live invasion and also keep an eye on the granary etc.

The user interface to this game is horrible. So bad in fact, that the game is completely unplayable.

I hope this game goes straight to the bargin-bin at Wal-Mart and rots.

Common, the HUD isnt that terrible.

Oh well, still this isnt a game for blind, stupid and/or idiotic people.

The Menu is rather good, you have these shiny shields, and about the Gameplay menu, it may be a little confusing at first, but just stick with it.

I suggest, its a VERY good game.
And i REALLY would like to test the defences of my Castle in Freebuild mode,
but the Stronghold 1.2 Updater just blocks and i have to shut it down.
Any other also encountered this problem?
Do you have a Solution for me?
Thank you!
You could mail me at pat@cote.ch ,
or just reply the post.

Depending upon the size of your hard disk drive (and number of drives) the update installer can spend a very long time searching for copies of Stronghold. If you're patient, it will probably eventually come up with the file selector letting you choose which copy of Stronghold to update.

This was my experience, anyway. I haven't experimented with how the game is after the update...

I had the same problem - updater would hang and never update.

Then I realized I was attached to multiple network drives. It wasn't just searching my local computer, it was searching everything. Disconnected them, and then the whole process took under a minute.
