Release Date:
April 2005



Stronghold 2, the new addition to the popular Stronghold series, is the only game of its kind to unite simulation and strategic battle elements. Experience the ultimate castle building simulation. Expand your lands and fortify your citadel. Entertain your people with jousting, banquets and dances or rule with an iron fist and intimidate your overworked peasants with medieval "justice". Stronghold 2 presents siege battles and life in medieval castles more accurately and excitingly than any other computer game.

Press Notes about
Stronghold 2
"Along with the beautiful graphics, the creators provide successful sound output including contemporary music and the best possible synchronisation. (...) + good synchronisation"
"The sound is also well done, it shines with good music and great voice-overs."
"(...) The story is good, the graphics are varied and the sound is excellent. Well-known voice over actors tell tales of medieval intrigues and decadent noblemen."
May 2005
PC Powerplay
"In the sound department, however, everything fits: good, atmospheric music and professional unit speech - that's as it should be."
"Stronghold 2 thrilled me acoustically (...) The good news: The narrators' voices and the villagers' comments are so true to life and so distinctive that they could be used for an audio play. When "Philipp Bocksbeutler" grumbles about taxes or "Frederik Bierheber" complains about the monotonous grub, gruffly amusing atmosphere is created. (...) very good German actors; localisation: very good"
