Unfortunately, this campaign is not a good one. (Which can be expected, as AoK has only been out for a couple of weeks). However, I was a bit disappointed that this campaign was not just a little better. Let me explain: For starters, The first two levels have a Random-map feel, in both gameplay and Map Design. For the most part, it looks like the author generated a Random Map, and added units.

All three levels are quite easily, some ridiculously so, which leads me to believe that this campaign was never really playtested. In the first scenario, all you have to do is scout a little. You will then find a town loaded with dozens of Villagers, Farms, etc., as well as a good-sized military. With these it will be no problem to crush your enemy\'s puny little town. The third scenario is even worse for Balance. You start with a large army, and must attack and destroy the enemy, who consists mainly of Villagers. There are absolutely NO triggers, aside from the Victory Conditions, and even these do not work correctly in some areas. The Story/Instructions are short, and there is no Bitmap.

On the upside, your town in the third scenario was well-done, and this campaign is about average what I would expect this early in the life of AoK. However, there is still not a lot to recommend it, although I would suggest that you give it a try while you wait for some good campaigns to be released.
