Stronghold 3 buy info and mini review

Recommended Posts

if you would like to buy stronghold 3 to see how it is and don't mine using steam I recommend to get it from here

https://www.g2a.com/stronghold-3-gold-steam-cd-key-global.html

 

This is where I obtain some of my games and has not failed me yet the reason im mentioning this as on steam in ?22 and to be honest I don't think its worth that I like what they done but it all broken in some kind of way mainly multiplayer and the stability so with that gone its replay ability is not much when I last played and I don't think there has been any patches since as I last played when it went gold was the archer range is terrible on towers also don't like being able to melee the walls again its one of the reason why I like stronghold 2 and legends so much as catapults and everything have a proper use. but it did have huge potential and still does but they blew it and I think it basically dead now. I pre-ordered this game so I kinda regret blowing ?30 on this as it was not finished it feels more like a early alpha build than a finished product.

So this is some kind of keygen/pirated copy or serial key for the game?

Right, I just got a bit suspicious by the link containing "cd key". But you can guarantee that that game is a legal copy?

its legal copy as it uses steam and steam only uses legal copies.

for example stronghold 3 copy that guy selling in the link I gave is selling them as gifts as they in his steam inventory so what you got to do is login in to steam on website and when you buy it from him you will be put to a page where its being processed will take 5-15 mins or sooner if lucky when processed you will be given a link which you copy and paste into your URL and go to it and it will tell you if you want to accept this game gift so it will say do you want to accept stronghold 3 accept or decline you click accept ect... and it will be in your library. another way G2A does it if they sell you a code so it can be a code or a Gift copy of the game but either way its a legal copy

 

if steam doesn't use legal copies developers wont use them and it will be forced to shut down but that's not the case is it so its all good

OK, just making sure - you can never be too careful from sites you've never heard of before ;) As long as it's legal that's fine.

I'd like to say only one thing about this matter.

I am sure you wanted the best, but sometimes it's not the best idea to give a link for something like this (purchasing Stronghold 3 on a website). I believe you will agree with me that there is a risk, when someone wants to buy a game on a place like that. I say it because, as far as I understood, you don't buy each game there from a single company - you buy it from individual persons. Therefore, you cannot guarantee that someone would get scratched DVD, or anything like that (as those stuff may not be new there). I believe we all know what traders are. :) When someone wants to sell you a computer, he would tell you how he wasn't using it at all, and such things... After you get the PC, you later notice it's whole different story. :) Maybe cars would be better example... Also - the example with scratched DVD - I know it is not possible when you get a game from Steam, in that case it doesn't matter, but you know what I want to say.

 

At least you would have to tell what it is - for someone it is not instantly clear what that website is. :)

 

 

As about Stronghold 3... Do you have the latest version of the game?

I do have the latest version yes and its still a broken early alpha game.

as for the website I put. I wanna say a few things about it. 1: I il only post a website down to buy stuff if used it and know it safe, 2: G2A others G2A shield when buying of other people to make sure you don't get scammed buy buying fake code or nothing. 3: all of it digital and related to software programs that sells games such steam and origin non are disk related so as long as you receive it and it activated on your account and shows in your library you should be good. 4. not every game othered on that website is sold buy individual people some games G2A sells as well but you can get a lot better offers from individual people selling which brings back to no. 2 about g2a shield to help safer buys.

 

again I will only post websites for buying if I know they safe and used it multiple times and as I mentioned I have personal real life friends use the website multiple times as well with no problems. I see what your trying to say but I just have say all this

I have the gold version, and in my opinion, it's pretty good - though I haven't played it much. It could do with polishing up slightly, and a skirmish mode would be nice - but CivCity Rome doesn't have one either. It isn't the kind of game you can constantly play, but it is worth the money you pay for it, just.

ok lets starts with the problems. multiplayer is broken and wont work and if it does it will crash shortly after playing for a few mins. the new campaign broken you spawn as wrong army in first mission so you basically own the keep that your meant to attack and take. Troop pathing is broken. archer range is messed up when I last played and can shoot through walls. tower ballista and ground you have to give them targets manually when I last checked. and there bunch of other bugs to know them all just spend like 10-15 mins on steam forums. the game is barely worth ?2 and that's pushing it the game had potential but it crashed and burned and is not changing if lucky someone does a giant mod that can fix it but highly doubt it

I wouldn't know anything about multiplayer as I've never played it. The campaign I've only loaded for a quick check, and it appeared ok for me. I haven't heard anything about that archer issue, nor have I encountered it myself so I can't understand that. I mainly play on free mode or just built custom settlements and I like it from my experience - I like the way you can rotate buildings 360 degrees and the graphics is much better.

 

The music could do with updating, as to me, it didn't sound right in SH3, and so could the troop speech, but from what I played I could see little massively wrong with it - but, I've only bought it within the last year and didn't get it when it was supposedly at its worst. Do keep in mind though that it was released early due to the press.

 

It can't be that heavily modified as the game has been compiled and the source code can't be edited anymore. It would have to be decompiled (which is virtually impossible to my knowledge), firefly would have to release the source code, or they would have to edit it then recompile it.

if you play the campaign for 1 hour and try multiplayer properly you will see many of the bugs also the blackstaff campaign is broke as you spawn as wrong army so not even sure if it is completable ands the very first mission. I initially posted the buy link if people desperately wanna try it as they missed the steam sale on it but to be honest to god don't buy it if you played all the other stronghold you will be disappointed in stronghold 3 sure the graphics are great and features are good but what use is it if the gameplay is broken and cant play properly you will just get frustrated nothing more gonna happen to this game they have said its final version is broken I preordered it and nothing has really changed since they released it I know its the press fault for pushing them but Its firefly fault for giving up on it at its current state its just not acceptable

Is this game actually worth getting? I haven't exactly heard critical acclaim for this game (unintentional rhyme).

Welcome, sh4d0wknight!

My opinion (and it's just mine) - I am not a big fan of SH3. To me it's just a rehash of SH2. It does have a "Night Time" feature, which does look cool for torches (and of course night assaults). Also, when your walls are attacked (siege equipment and related), they "crumble" more like a falling wall should - that was not REALLY enough for me. But, like I did - I gave it a shot. I don't recall any demos of SH3 out there. Try it and see what you think........ :D :D

I thing that, if you are a Stronghold fan, then you need to have Stronghold 3 as well! It is very playable, besides that bad rating, one can play the campaign - several of campaigns, and there are custom scenarios as well. You should be aware of the fact that it doesn't have skirmish mode, but Firefly bring really a lot of great stuff into this game. For example I like how the wall acts in Stronghold 3 when being his by a catapult - first it only cracks and looses its health, and after that it also collapse. Troops on top of the wall do lose their health if catapults hits it, but it is not as drastically as in Stronghold 2 for example.

 

Only you should patiently wait for a sale. Which reminded me of one thing I saw! It is available in this bundle now for ?2.20:

http://www.bundlestars.com/all-bundles/trinity-bundle/

 

The offer ends in about 8 days. I must say that I am not much familiar with buying games online, so I am not much familiar with this website as well, but those guys on Steam said it's fine, and that they used to get stuff from there before. I'm not saying it is a reliable, nor it is not, I just know nothing - like John Snow. :D

I don't see anything drastically wrong with Stronghold 3. While it's definitely not the best game, it's playable and you can still play multiplayer .etc.

 

So if you were intending to play skirmishes, you could play online matches instead with other people (us for example, by adding a new gaming event).
