A decent if generic strategy game that lacks the big personality and siegecraft of earlier entries.
What is it? Base-building real-time strategy game set in the far east.
Expect to pay £27/$36

The original Stronghold holds a special place in my heart. You build a medieval barony, surround it with a labyrinth of impassable walls, and stave off waves of attackers while keeping the serfs living within happy, well fed and well taxed. It had real character too, with a lovely soundtrack, snappy unit soundbites and memorable villains.
