i loved stronghold 2, it was so much more complex than any other rts i played. sadly i lost my play cd and only have the second cd so i cant play anymore :(

but it did have its faults.. the main thing i hated was when you got in a big battle all your guys would bunch up into the space of about 2 people. it was pretty annoying....

Still, the best castlebuilding experience is in stronghold. However, that just may change with a certain gamexD We don't know that well yet besides we do not really make it from the bottom up so i gotta try it out to see:p

Stronghold 2 got boring pretty fast. I have a feeling that Stronghold 3 will be pretty much the same unless they make some drastic changes.

I feel the same way. And to add to that, The some walls Walls could be taken down with melee?? and all walls where just way to week. A siege wasn't really a siege. you just bring 1 trebuchet and shoot 1 wall segment down and rush in!

I like the new graphics for stronghold 3, but I am very worried about their gameplay.

yeah the walls were pretty weak, when i sieged i would build tons of trebuchet and attack till there was no more walls lol

but i did like how they progressively got smaller when they were hit (rather than them just doing a small animation of them falling then the just disappear) . and the wooden walls weren't really a concern for me, because i rarely used them.... most of the time for just an outer wall to keep people out for a bit longer

SH1 was the only well built stronghold of the series.. SH2 did nothing but crash to desktop and go out of synch during online play. Same with Stronghold legends.

There are a few issues I didn't care for and I do see them in this title in the movie clip as well, one of my pet peves was when the guys are on the walls they should line up on the walls. In stronghold I had to individual set the guys on the wall or it was just a hord and didn't look right at all. Not sure about DOF, but that was one of the many things that bothered me in stronghold. The announcment and now looking at what is there for stronghold3, eh I will have to see it in action before I buy it, stronghold 2 for me was cool because it went 3d, awsome animation for the workers and torcher devices etc, but failed in the basic gameplay of the game. That was combat and sieging.

after receiving a email saying i had to post here 10 times to get a key i got excited on playing online again and found stronghold 3 it ain't to bad but as time progress's in it it takes more waiting time to build up army and city i don't mind its game play but it has its bugs at times :confused:

Cant wait for Stronghold 3. Stronghold 1 is one of my favorite games, but Stronghold 2 was bad compared to the first it. I hope they do it right with the third one.

Screenshots are cool... But some things worrying me... Why so little open space on screens?

Oh wow, I hadn't heard of this. Last thing I saw was the crappy browser based mmo they where releasing that looks like 10 already released browser TBS MMO's. What actually attracted me to this game in the first place was my search for a game like Stronghold and someone mentioning that they had been watching this game for quite a bit. I was hooked and have been lurking the site ever since.

Best thing about Stronghold series that is unique is that fact that you can pretty much customize exactly how your kingdom/castle looks.

Stronghold Crusader was great for me, but I really didn't like the second one, just the idea of having some villages that provides you of some goods (some other games already had this, such as Cossacks 2).

I hope this one would be better than second and the apparently horrible Legends (I haven't tried that one). I still remember that the last one they launched was Crusader Extreme, which was really disapointing, taking in account that is just a revision of Crusader, even with same graphics.

Stronghold II was awful, I spent half my time managing the dirt my citizens left behind instead of building epic castles... -.- But if the third part will capitalize on what made the first game great and adds modern graphics, it could be spectacular.

Well if you like Stronghold you might as well like this one spinoff http://www.strongholdkingdoms.com/ . I don't know kow to name it hmm mmorts also ? not sure. But quite addictive. Also still in beta but open.

I actually have all of the Stronghold games and have liked most of them. Didn't really care for legends at all, but I am hoping that SH3 is really nice.

Loved the franchise, just as i Loved the Settlers... but with them both I only ever got a few missions in then for whatever reason stopped! :(

Stronghold 3 looks amazing with daytime/nighttime going on IN-GAME aswell as changing weather. Not to mention they also made it more like the original, so no more crime, rats, and crap to deal with!:D

I want to try it aswell.

SH3 looks more better than last versions, really more realistic, the night and day ; ]

I hope Stronghold 3 will live up to my expectations. I played Stronghold 1 and 2 and I really enjoyed the free play you could do in that game. I just wish you could get attacked by armies in free play because I get this huge fortified castle going with archers on the walls, and moats and boiling oil and everything...but, I cant tell the computer to send an army after me...which would be cool. Also, I looked into Stronghold Kingdoms, but it seems just like every other browser based game Ive played, like Tribal Wars, Evony, and Heroes Kingdoms.

As a real RTS-er i played all the strongholds.

I remember when i was a kid and i played the multiplayer demo of stronghold on gamespy.
I was the 2nd best in that game( out of 15-20 people :p)... Really an amazing game.

Probably gonna check stronghold 3 sooner or later but due lack of time i can only play a bit with 1 game and thats DoF :p

Stronghold 2 was on the right way but to many things was terrible included !

I heard Stronghold 3 only have One Civilisation, so all player will have the same Buildings, units etc..That sucks so much :/

Here's a couple of articles discussing a preview of Stronghold 3. They're old, but discuss how they're doing a "back-to-basics approach" with Stronghold 3.

http://www.videogamer.com/pc/stronghold_3/preview-2769.html
http://www.pcgamer.com/2010/10/06/stronghold-3-design-a-castle-that-fires-cows/

Just thought I'd throw this out here since it seems like a bit of discussion about people not liking the Stronghold 2 approach. I never played Stronghold 2 -- I only played Crusader -- so I'm not sure if what is said in the articles cover most or any of the concerns.

They're good articles none-the-less.

----------------

Also, here's FireFly's website for Stronghold 3 since the official Stronghold 3 website seems to still be in the works. :mad:

Side note about FF's forums... If you're seeing their forums in a tree/threaded view, at the top--just below the banner--there's a button to change it to a normal looking view. It's called "Flat View."

I thought the original game was amazingly fun. The second wasn't bad but i felt like it was missing something. maybe the fact it was divided into counties that you had to conquer felt a bit hastily put together. i hope the 3rd is amazing though.

Check Stronghold Kingdoms out ;)
Oh yeah now time to hope for a game where you can control the units. I am the same Vigilus from that game :)
