|Stronghold Crusader is the 2002 successor of the original Stronghold game. This game replays the Crusader campaigns of Europe's big empires against the defenders of the Arabian empires and the Holy Land. In the campaigns, the most notable rivalry occurs between the noble English warmonger, Richard the Lionheart and the kind-hearted but ambitious Arabian conqueror, Saladin.
Crusader brings a twist to the gameplay with the introduction of Arabian units, as well as 8 AI characters with unique strategies and tactics. Most buildings get a recolor and new textures, while the base gameplay concept remains unchanged. Crusader spawned an expansion pack, Stronghold Warchest (2003) and a sequel, Stronghold Crusader Extreme (2008). Read more...
|Stronghold Crusader Extreme is the 2008 sequel of Stronghold Crusader. It can be viewed as an expansion for Crusader, but it was released separately from its prequel.

It has a 20 mission campaign trail and introduces Crusader's 8 AI enemies, with another 8 of them from Warchest. It brings new elements in gameplay by the Lord's special support powers, the endless unit producing outposts and an increased 10.000 unit cap. Read more...
