Hey guys,
My Stronghold 2 disc was too scratched up to use anymore. (:cry:) So I'm going to buy it again because I loved that game so much. When I was browsing the internetz looking for a good deal I noticed that there was Stronghold 2 Deluxe. I looked at the game features and I didn't really see much of a difference. Which is better to buy? I can get either one for a good price, the thing I really need to know is which is better. People who have played either please post and tell me your opinion.

Regards,
Folthie

Probably includes the expansion, making it suck even more.

I don't think there's an expansion for Stronghold 2. Maybe I'm wrong though. According to Wikipedia, deluxe is just Stronghold 2 completely patched, and with some new content. What that new content is, I don't know, probably new maps and stuff.

It's not a bad game in my opinion. Could've done with more work but I'm content with it.

Zip. Nada. Except maybe a new map or two, I didn't count maps.

But otherwise, nothing.

None. Non-deluxe Stronghold 2 can download the bonus content for free from the website.

I think the only reason you'd get deluxe is if you had a slow internet connection and wanted the patches and bonus material. I remember trying to patch my game on a slow connection, took all day.

I have the case, it says:

NEW IN THE DELUXE EDITION:

More maps, opponents, and historical castles to battle!
Crusade across Europe in a new game mode!

I think it's a fun game. I destroy the enemies with my legions of archers and swordsman!
Massacring, mass rape, and other such things are definitely not activities that most choirboys participate in.

A couple of vowels and some consonants.
They wanted to have a good time, but they were like children playing in the street; they could see one after another of them being killed -- run over, maimed, destroyed -- but they continued to play anyhow. We really all were very happy for a while, sitting around not toiling but just bullshitting and playing, but it was for such a terribly brief time, and then the punishment was beyond belief; even when we could see it, we could not believe it.

What is the new game mode exactly? Is it just another campaign?

The new game mode is basically that siege the castle mode but it's a campaign.

Well.. no reason for opening a new thread (this one is not so old).

Here goes my question: is this game any better than SH 1? This title has received so many mixed reviews, and I really want to buy it. From what I hear the Deluxe version has all the updates.

hello chisense people im from english forums just thought i come in pop and say hi :p...  shame i can't read your language :( although you probley dont understand mine :p anyway hi all!
Reading a book makes my head ache.

If you enjoyed Stronghold 1 you'll probably enjoy the sequel, although the campaign gets off to a slow start. In some ways it's better than SH1, in others it's slightly worse.

It should be marked down more than enough by now to make it worth the price, it's fun, but doesn't have the same feel as 1. If you love the stronghold games though, get it (but only Stronghold, Stronghold: Crusader and Stronghold 2 are worth it).
