Critic Reviews for Stronghold: Warlords

A decent if generic strategy game that lacks the big personality and siegecraft of earlier entries.

Stronghold Warlords has a refreshing East Asian setting and satisfying castle building, but it looks and plays like an RTS that was asleep for most of the last decade or two.

Stronghold: Warlords is a refreshing new look for the long-running siege warfare series, rekindling much of what made the series great in the early 2000s. However, there's a number of deep-seated flaws that Firefly need to make the focus of game updates and redefine for the series going forward.

Stronghold: Warlords isn't really a bad game, but antiquated mechanics and bland campaigns prevent it from standing out amongst a crowded strategy market.

Stronghold Warlords is a decent strategy game. While the city-building and sieging truly let the game shine, the slow and sluggish pace between these can truly drag it down. The new diplomacy and warlords system adds something to the series and makes for a welcome change, but it's impossible not to think of this as a game that feels and plays like a strategy game from 20 years ago, for better and for worse.

While missions can be frustrating and the new diplomacy system is nothing to write home about, Stronghold: Warlords should satisfy devoted fans with its new, gorgeously realised setting.

The time I spent playing Stronghold: Warlords was more than enjoyable. The series did not become instantly better nor revolutionized anything, but the developers have finally prepared a game that doesn't need any apologies. Warlords is not the prettiest, but it runs really well.

Set in the far east, Stronghold: Warlords is the new RTS made by FireFly Studios, but it can't bring back the good old times.
