This addition to Firefly Studios' castle building and management sim series offers 3D graphics and many new gameplay elements. But unlike original games, Stronghold Legends shifts the focus away from realistic medieval castle building and defending with exceedingly historical units to fantasy real-time strategic combat with Merlins, Dragons, and huge Giants who destroy castles.

The game features 24 missions in over 3 single player campaigns, where the player commands Knights of the Round Table led by King Arthur, an evil army of Count Dracula or Siegfried, and the German Dragon Slayer and his followers.

It also features multiplayer that supports up to 4 players, not only with the classic Stronghold deathmatch, but also three new multiplayer modes: King of the Hill, Economic War, and Capture the Flag.

In the German gaming magazine GameStar (issue 04/2009) FireFly Studios' Stronghold Legends was named as one of the "10 Most Terrible Sequels", because the game focuses on the series' weak point, the combat, while cutting back the strong building part. Despite the developer's promises to polish the engine, the graphics are outdated.
