MacGamer Posts Stronghold Review
6:54 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Our friends at MacGamer have posted a review of MacSoft's recently released castle sim, Stronghold. Overall the review gives the game high marks, giving kudos to the graphics and sound as well as the game's stability.

Here's a snippet from the review:

The game's bright and crisp graphics are rendered completely in 2D in very fine detail. The game can be sized to the 800x600 or 1024x768 resolution, although viewing space appears to remain largely unchanged. Each character in the game displays an original animation or two, such as mothers cradling their babies or children playing pat-a-cake. As far as 2D graphics go, you really couldn't ask much more of Stronghold.

The game's audio is also quite respectable. The intro music is some of the most memorable I've heard, and the game's actual soundtrack fares well in comparison with Age of Empires II or Warcraft II. The cinematic voice acting is top-notch and rather comical, complete with the traditional Old English accent we all know and love.

Head over to MacGamer to check out the rest of the review. And, of course, if you haven't already done so, be sure to also check out IMG's review.

Stronghold is available for order from the IMG Store for just $39. MacGames CD subscribers can order it for $34.
