But...are there Krakens here in Age of Empires II?

Well, meet Arkantos. Apparently he got lost when sailing back to Atlantis. Recently I'm treasure hunting in the "modding folder" of my old computer and found him. He told me that a long time ago a young modder called Achesun tried to made a Age of Mythology themed mod, but abandoned the project since the Hydras are too difficult to animate.

I told the admiral of Atlantis that I can take him to Aokh, maybe some designers there are in desperate need of Kraken slayers.

Arkantos is a new unit by Achesun which is based off the hero of the same name from the Age of Empires spin-off game Age of Mythology.

Usefulness/Novelty: 4.5
This new unit represents an Ancient Greek spearman. It has a lack of visible armour and a long spear which reminds of some of the Ancient Greek heroes from various classic myths. Those heroes which come from poor families and when a threat emerges, they discover they are actually unbelievably strong and they are a demigod, the son of the gods. Theseus springs to mind when I see this unit. Whilst the graphics are exceptional, the usefulness of this unit isn’t high. AOK is primarily a medieval game, with most custom scenarios being set within the Middle Ages. Whilst there are many scenarios set in Ancient times, these are much fewer and thus merit this unit less useful on its own than others you can find in the blacksmith. I’d put in a larger mod pack with other Ancient/Antiquity graphics it could become a great addition.

Quality/Instructions: 5
The graphics of this unit are superb. Made tin Blender through 3D modelling, the unit looks highly realistic and fit in well with the game. The graphics blend in really well with the other original units. The graphics have correct lighting and shadows and the unit is the appropriate height. The frames run smoothly with detailed animations for all five SLPs. The unit also comes with player colour and a custom icon.

Additional Comments:
Overall this is an exquisite unit made at the highest quality and would be perfect for anyone looking to create an Ancient Greek scenario or mod pack.

Thanks
