I read a ton of Stronghold Crusader 2 reviews before picking it up, both on Steam and random ones I could find on the internet. Some were good, some were bad.
Honestly, a lot of the reviews were negative about the game, especially on Steam. Being a long time of the first game, I really wanted to pick this one up and love it.
I’ve put in about 30 hours into the game which is a clear sign that I’m enjoying it so far. Usually I’ll only play a game for a few hours if I don’t actually enjoy it, that’s not the case with Crusader 2.
I wrote a review of the first one and I did state that it’s probably my favorite game of all time. It was my childhood and I still play it to this day so I guess that I’m a little bias towards this title since I am such a huge fan of the game before it but I’m going to be reviewing this differently than the other reviews that I’ve seen.
