This campaign has its good points, but also has some quite bad points. Scenarios 1, 3 and 4 are not so good. In scenario 1 just using the cannon galleons will do the job. In scenario 3 defending the wonder is somewhat of a challenge, but after the enemies are routed it gets quite boring to just wait for the wonder to finish the counter. In scenario 4 the objective is to lose! quite easy.

Scenario 2 is the true jewel of the campaign. The star of the scenario is the AI script the author has placed in it. It will make for a very interesting battle, with a AI that pushes you forward with towers and castles.

Map design is not good. The maps are obviouly made from scratch and the terrain is simple and plain. The author even puts bamboo on sicily! The story is interesting and it is quite creative to adapt a roman war to AOK, but there are several misspelllings, and some things just do not seem right (carthaginians without elephants, bamboo and mangudai in sicily, the romans attacking with cavalry archers and paladins, things like that).

This campaign has potential that it could be improved to become a classic in a eventual future version. Taking care of the map and brushing the history up a bit would raise the score quite a bit. Also, adding some interesting triggers or some extra interesting things wouldn't hurt. I definetly recommend anyone to try scenario 2.
