A great tactical-level strategy game set in the AD&D world, this game is SimCity meets RPG formula. Build and expand cities, recruiting the AD&D denizens (dwarves, elves, etc.) while fending off AD&D monsters. The game broke new ground not by giving you godlike control over town expansion, unit production, and resource harvesting -- since that has been a mainstay of earlier fantasy wargames -- but by displaying all the action in real-time from bird's eye view that's similar to Bullfrog's classic Populous, if only much more detailed. Each townsperson has his or her own individual traits, and you can always click on them to find out who they are and what they think of you as their ruler. As in RPGs, troops gain experience and levels with every batton won, and wizards gain access to more powerful spells. Overall, Stronghold is a very polished fantasy strategy game that was sadly undersold. Highly recommended.
