I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment.
I joked in my review for the bizarre...
FireFly Studios' STRONGHOLD is the culmination of our long-standing desire to create a really good castle building game. In concept it is a unique cross between a city builder and a real time strategy game. The key to the game is the castle; designing it, managing it and defending it. Each of these elements has its place in Stronghold and you will need to consider all of them to be a really good player. There is no open field combat, only ever increasing hordes of besiegers whose sole purpose is to destroy all you have built. Depending on how well you have built your 'castle' you may or may not survive!
The demo includes two full missions, four difficulty levels and over 20 buildings.
