"Absolutely Brilliant!"
5 stars"

WARNING! after switching on this game, say bye bye to your weekends and your weeknights! Highly addictive. Both depth and breath – beautifully thought out, excellent graphics, you always need to use your mind in conquering your foes. AI is excellent from what one can expect.

I highly recommed to go through the 4 training scenes first.

Even though this game is more than 4 years old, it is very very enjoyable because there are so many elements – for example, you must build up an economy as well as an army to defend your stronghold.

One of the finest sights is seeing your bow men shoot and fill the sky with arrows! Absolutely brilliant!


Within a resilient castle beats the heart of a thriving society full of Fletchers, Brewers, and Armorers, while outside stalk enemy Assassins, mighty War Engines, and the constant threat of fire. In “Stronghold: Crusader,” players will journey to Arabian lands renowned for brave warriors and fearsome weaponry, while reliving heroic battles of the historic Crusades. The player’s challenge is to build and defend medieval desert fortresses and lay siege to fearless enemies. As European nobles or Arabian warriors, players must conquer the harsh terrain in the legendary Crusades of the 11th and 12th centuries.

  • Relive the heroic battles of the historic Crusades in four distinct campaigns.

  • Lead the heavily armored European Knights as Richard the Lionheart and command vast Arabian armies as Saladin, the Sultan of Syria.

  • Attack the strongholds of fierce computer lords while forging an impregnable bastion of defense during intense skirmish mode.

  • Master the tactics of the desert while building fortifications of varying heights and thicknesses, hoard every drop of water to extinguish deadly fire, and fervently defend oases.

  • Experience ruthless medieval combat in a hostile land where Assassins silently slay their victims, Horse Archers combine deadly accuracy with frightening speed and common Slaves can shift the balance of power.

  • Protect and defend thy loyal subjects with boiling oil, killing pits, moats, keeps, fire watchmen and more.

  • Witness unparalleled siege weaponry including crushing Trebuchets, Portable Fire Ballistae, imposing Siege Towers and destructive Mangonels.

  • Storm enemy barricades with over 25 units including Arabian Swordsmen, Teutonic Knights and Grenadiers.
