Here comes a new challenger!
Here comes another expansion pack for the decent but very challenging real-time strategy game that is Stronghold Crusader 2. Similar to another pack that's also available, The Emperor & the Hermit, this one adds in a new campaign based around the two characters referred to in the title, as well as a few other extras which are actually very similar to those found in the other pack. The first character here, the Jackal is a fearless warrior who will really test any armchair general's skill and whose story goes back to the first Stronghold Crusader game. The Khan is an equally clever opponent who is a nomad whose fighting style is animalistic and unpredictable, making him just as challenging to face. The campaign sees you facing off against these two enemies in a short series of missions which are nevertheless very difficult and likely to keep veteran players hooked for some time. There are a few other extras here, like the new castle layouts and achievements, but it's the campaign which is the real draw here. As far as expansion packs go, this isn't bad. Although there's not a whole heap of content here, it's priced fairly and the missions are certainly hard enough to keep you going for a while. The visuals and interface remain the same, so old-hands will slip right in, but if you're just starting out with the game, you might want to hold off on this, as it is very challenging. This is certainly not one for the casual player but if you've exhausted the base game and are looking to be tested, this is a good choice.
