Storyline

645 AD. Emperor Taizong invades Goguryeo with his massive Tang army. His initial target is the fortress at Ansi. After defeating a major attack by the Goguryeon army he besieges Ansi. The odds are massively stacked in Taizong's favour: opposing his 200,000-strong army is a mere 5,000 force at Ansi. It is lead by Yang Manchun, a man regarded as a traitor by the Goguryeon leader.

The Tang general clearly never played any of the Stronghold PC games...
23 July 2019 | by shaolinmasterkevSee all my reviews

The Tang general clearly never played any of the Stronghold PC games... Epic siege movie with some good thematic elements at play and interesting characters. The tang dynasty general used trebuchets for a day then quit, maybe he should of used those the entire time? I feel sad for the poor Tang invaders, they tried so hard!
