Stronghold: Legends review

Apparently a medieval makeover means a lot more magic but even more bite

Pros

  • New and beautiful magic attacks
  • Marching through mythical terrains
  • More multiplayer games

Cons

  • Often unbeatable AI opponents
  • Illogically lazy peasants
  • Occasional helplessness

Get out your metal gloves, sharpen your broadsword and polish your helmet: We're about to get a bit medieval.

Stronghold: Legends, the latest installment in the medieval castle-building sim franchise, is a little less about maintenance and more about real-time strategies and colorful skirmishes than its predecessors.

There are now a few extra minions who can break down castle barriers and a whole array of mythical creatures to control including the frosty forces of Siegfried and Dietrich, the creepy creatures of Count Vlad Dracul (aka Vlad the Impaler or Count Dracula) and King Arthur's magical knights and merry minions of Camelot.
