  • Summary: Stronghold Crusader Extreme takes the addictive Crusader gameplay to a new level. Featuring massive battles, new outposts and tactical powers to master, Extreme carries on from where Crusader left off. The all new Extreme trail will provide a stiff challenge to any hardened Crusader player. For those new to Crusader, the original game has been provided too, in an updated form and with all the previously released limited edition content, such as the second crusader trail and all 8 new AI opponents.

  1. This game earns the name extreme, from the maps to the enemies to the combat.
  2. Though dated, Stronghold Crusader is a worthy addition to any RTS fan's library.
  3. I can only recommend this game to hardcore fans of the genre. Others would find it hard to get much enjoyment from it, especially when there are a lot of great RTS classics out there. This game is six years old and looks it m’lord.
  4. Not only is Stronghold Crusader Extreme dated in terms of graphics and sound, but the interface is also slow and cumbersome.
  5. Rarely have I come across a set of RTS missions as mercilessly unforgiving as these. [Sept 2008, p.72]
  6. Stronghold has always been a series that was pleasingly enjoyable to play and has always had bags of potential, but this recent rehash does nothing other than highlight just how out of date it has become.
  7. 16
    Other than the fact that you can wage 10,000-unit battles, don't expect much difference between Stronghold Crusader Extreme and the regular, nonextreme Stronghold Crusader.
