In the Middle East, the Crusader Knight Richard the Lionheart must defend his city against the enemy army of the Sultan of Syria. The Knights are ready to defend the castle. Meanwhile, the Archers do their best to stop the assailing enemies, while Swordsmen protect the walls from the enemy climbers. And it is in the middle of this despicable environment where the player must choose a side. Assume the role of the Crusader Knight Richard the Lionheart or the Sultan of Syria and conduct your army to victory in intense turn-based combats in a skirmish style. 

Set during the Crusades, your objective in the game is to destroy the enemy castles and seize control over their bases to achieve victory. The challenges will prove more difficult over time, since players must face tricky settings and tasks to accomplish their goals. Harsh conditions such as tornados and even locust swarms may result in tough situations for the army’s leader to deal with. It is also extremely important to learn how to handle the 25 unit types available, such as Archers, Assassins and Knights to keep the battlefield under control. Manage your economy and fortify your castle to protect yourself from the opponents. After putting your skills to test in single player mode, take on a new challenge on multiplayer where you are able to face up to 7 players in a deadly warfare where only the greatest will be able to triumph over others.

The best strategy game I have ever played. Stronghold Crusader 2 is the game where you have to build up an empire and defend it against enemy. It is an addictive game and similar to age of empires. But is better than AOE because of the multiplayer options, editing of map, new and more allies, collection of sources and the most important is the army including more than 20 types of soldiers and defense types. There are more than 100 maps to play on and maximum choice of choosing 7 enemies. The gamer who loves strategy games, its a must for them to play.

The 2002 Stronghold Crusader was one of the very first games I'd ever played. I have to say that although I was profoundly in love with it, I would expect its sequel to be state-of-the-art in terms of PC games, having in mind that it was only released not a year ago. Not that it's a complete disappointment, though. The 3D graphics are ever-enjoyable, love the tornadoes and the locusts. However, for a strategy games fanatic, I expected a bit more effort.

It is sad to see a good franchise turning sour. It is even more sad to see that developers don't get that even after 10 years and their first 3-d Stronghold installment (Stronghold 2). Firefly Studios never tried to fix the painful transition from 2-D to 3-D surroundings and graphics suffered from it. It is safe to say that first Crusader from 2002 looks much better than 2014 version. Furthermore, voice acting is horrendous, and all this comes after constant critics throughout the last decade.

Classic strategy game at it best shows in Stronghold Crusader II. The storyline reflects the crusade of the Christians in the medieval times. Maps are basically deserts of Middle East. All medieval army units,along with some decorating items made this game unique. There are lot into this game which takes time to explore. the battle strategy will test your intelligent because you have to fight as you are in a crusade or defending the crusaders. It is considered on the of the best strategy game.
