There are some fantastic remasters out there. Homeworld and Homeworld 2 leap instantly to mind. Then are some poor efforts, like Stronghold HD and now, sadly, Age of Empires II HD.

Stronghold

Stronghold: View 5



Stronghold, when it was first released in 2001, was an innovative game. It was the first real strategy game that focused entirely on castle warfare, rather than focusing purely on military units or village building. Stronghold HD should have been afforded the polish and tweaks needed to make it an enjoyable experience on modern machines. That didn’t happen.

Middle Ages Games for PC

Tribal Wars 2

Tribal Wars 2

A sequel which builds upon a franchise that's got over 10 years of gameplay and experience behind it, Tribal Wars 2 is a browser-based, time gated massively multiplayer strategy game. Players start with a small settlement that can be grown gradually either through attacking or forming alliances with other players.

Villages are controlled clicking on the different buildings. Going to the headquarters gives options for the construction of new buildings, while clicking on the barracks will allow control over the production of military units.

The ‘tribal' aspect unsurprisingly plays a large role. Tribes are made up of groups of players, who seek to gain control over as much as the game world as possible, reaping the rewards for teamwork and combined might. There are features for communication and intertribal negotiation included that make management and cooperation between players within game easy.

There's no active combat, as battle is resolved automatically based upon a calculation that takes into account troop attributes, morale and a little bit of luck. Settlements can be attacked until their loyalty reaches zero, at which point they can be taken over.

Medieval II: Total War

Medieval II: Total War

The fourth game in the Total War series by Creative Assembly, Medieval II: Total War was released toward the end of 2006. Like the other games in the series, Medieval II: Total War is a combination of turn-based organisation and real-time tactical battles. Encompassing more than simply warfare, it also requires that players become involved in politics and religion.

The campaign lets the player choose from one of several factions, tasked with building a civilization that is politically, economically and militarily competitive. A player's turn consists of moving resources around the map to key strategic points. When a battle is begun, it can either be automatically resolved, or handled personally by the player - launching the game's defining feature, the real-time tactical combat.

The end of campaign mode comes when one faction achieves the chosen goal - either defeating both historical enemies and controlling 15 territories, or in the larger campaign, controlling 45 territories and one or two defined, key cities (such as Rome or Jerusalem).

Age of Empires II HD

Age of Empires II HD

For those otherwise unfamiliar, Age of Empires is a real time strategy game that focuses on relatively short missions, where the player must build a settlement from scratch, gathering resources, building defensive perimeters and buildings, training units and equipping them. This is a combat-focused game, so military production and enemy destruction are the primary objectives.

A very basic remaster of the classic Age of Empries II, the HD remaster integrates Steam Workshop and multiplayer functionality.

Other remaster perks are sparse. Higher resolutions are supported, but no changes have been made to graphical assets, animations, interface or unit control. The game still struggles in massive skirmishes, something that a remaster really should have been able to address.

Settlements can be upgraded through ages, each of which visibly changes the appearance of buildings and units.

Crusader Kings II

Crusader Kings II

A grand strategy game from Paradox Interactive, Crusader Kings II is a complex and engrossing Middle Age game. Released in 2012 and still receiving patches and additional content, the player is responsible for their very own medieval dynasty.

Strategic use must be made of marriages, assassinations, war and political negotiations to ensure that the dynasty survives the cutthroat world. Historically accurate, it features characters such as William the Conqueror, El Cid, Alfred the Great, Saladin and Charlemagne.

Unlike other strategy games, there is no set target or victory condition, so ‘success' is entirely in the mind of the player. Performance against other dynasties is measured via the collection of prestige points, the goal being to overtake the Habsburg, Rurikovich and Capetian dynasties. The game will come to an end when either when it reaches the year 1453, or the player's character dies with no heir.

This is a game that can eat away hours upon hours, but has a steep learning curve. For those looking for something incredibly complex to chew on, Crusader Kings II comes highly recommended.

Stronghold Crusader HD

Stronghold

A remaster of the successor to Stronghold, Stronghold Crusader HD retains the successful mixture of castle and city building and real-time strategy. This time, the setting has been moved from the English countryside to the Crusades. More specifically, the campaign lead by Richard I against Phoenicia and Palestine under the command of Saladin.

Players can take command of either side, taking part in battles and making use of tactical combat with a range of military units and devilish castle defences.

In addition to the units retained from Stronghold, Crusader introduces assassins, horse archers, fire throwers, Arabian swordsmen and fire ballista. There are four campaigns and a fully-fledged scenario editor. Multiplayer mode is also supported, which features four historically accurate campaigns.

It's not the greatest remaster, something that it has in common with the HD version of Stronghold, but it does look and perform a little better than the original version.

Crusader Kings Complete

Crusader Kings Complete

Like its successor, Crusader Kings Complete is a grand strategy game where the player must create a successful Middle Ages dynasty, gathering prestige until they are recognised as the most successful dynasty of the era.

This game introduced famous historical figures, such as William the Conqueror and Edward III. While it's still a capable and enjoyable game, it is surpassed in almost every way by its successor, and it lacks the polish and iterative improvements that made Crusader Kings II a massive success.
