Summary

In Stronghold 3, castle building -- the foundation of the franchise -- has been significantly improved, providing players with unprecedented control over the placement of buildings. This allows them to create their kingdom with a precision that compliments their carefully planned tactics. What's more, village planning is no longer confined to a grid system; players can now create castle walls that flow gracefully ... until they’re blasted to pieces by the enemy.

Developers risk changing too much and destroying the core appeal of a series, or changing too little and producing a sequel that feels more like an expansion pack. Stronghold 3 is a bizarre third outlier, clinging to an aging formula but making changes that actually feel like a step back. The real crime here isn’t that Stronghold 3 is a bad game, it’s the disservice done to a series that has provided so much joy in the past, ruining our nostalgia.

Buried beneath bugs, control issues, harsh mission design and even harsher economic balancing, there seems to be a shadow of the old Stronghold as we remember it; sometimes you'll even have a minute of fun here and there. Perhaps we remember the original through rose-colored glasses, but that memory is infinitely better than the wild disappointment that is Stronghold 3.

The Historical Siege mode attempts this, but with no way to call in back-up, every unfair loss frustrates. A more obvious solution would have been a skirmish mode. The best missions in the military campaign already follow this template, and the ability to create custom battles would, at least, have made it easier to get at Stronghold 3's rare moments of excitement.
