Medium settings (maybe high), your CPU reached the recommended requirements, and your GPU surpassed the minimum requirements.

You should max the game, both your CPU and GPU reached the recommended settings.

I'm a long time fan of the Stronghold series, I own them all. While Stronghold 3 isn't Firefly's greatest achievement in this series it is still an OK game. I don't regret the purchase, I just wish they would've kept the Skirmish from Stronghold 2 as that was the most enjoyable part of the game. For me anyways

Ahh i love this game, its SUCH a good game. However i do agree with people who dont like it due to the bugs. I admit, if i was new to the Stronghold series and this was my first Stronghold purchase, i would be put off, the missions are pretty difficult and there was a helluva lotta bugs, but there has already been 2 patches so hopefully, more to come :D
