This is a six scenario campaign that tells a fictionalised tale about Robin Hood.

Playability: the scenarios are all B&D and very much the same. There's a lot of sieging huge enemy towns, and this quickly gets boring. Scn 1 tnvolves an objective where you must steal money from the king (and then fight him when he discovers your theft), but since the king does not become your enemy until the scout leaves the base it is possible to win through various tactics that the author did not intend (such as building palisades around all of the king's buildings while he's still allied). Scn 2 has you rescuing prisoners from a fortified (and excessively so) base. Scn 3 is nearly the same as the second, except you start on the other side of the map and there are no prisoners. In scn 4 the enemy has a huge army that is surrounded with walls but no gate, and you can destroy the wonder with trebuchets without ever fighting them. Scn 5 is more tedious sieging. The enemy has too many walls and towers and it's boring rather than challenging. In Scn 6 you have to claim a gaia base (with the annoying side effect that you can't upgrade anything in your army), and then siege another large enemy fortress. 2/5

Balance: I found the scenarios too easy, the standard AI is used and you normally start with a large base yourself. The final battle was almost the easiest scenario in the campaign, you have a huge army of paladins and trebuchets (and four heroes with over a 1000HP each) against three castle age computer players. Destroying large numbers of towers, walls, and castles with trebuchets isn't hard, it's just tedious and slow. 1/5

Creativity: nothing creative, the scenarios play like random maps except both players start with bases already built. There are a few simple objectives but you they normally just resolve to "destroy the enemy base." The Ensemble Studios campaigns are ten times more elaborate and developed. 1/5

Map design: random maps. 3/5

Story: the author has made an effort to put a story into the campaign. There are some interesting ideas, like the subplot with Elizabeth. Spelling errors. 4/5

To the designer, keep making campaigns, and practicing, and playing high-rated campaigns from the blacksmith. Try making the scenarios different, and entirely unlike random maps. Don't be afraid to really turn the pressure cooker on the player (for example, giving him 30 minutes to complete his objectives), rather than giving him an unlimited amount of time to build up. To everyone else, this campaign is not recommended, although it is a promising start.
