The Holy Forest is a mixed language german\english submission from the oldest days of the blacksmith. The parts in german are even somewhat understandable by themselves so it should present no difficulty in playing.

Playability 2

The gameplay is basically a random map B&D after a short intro scene;build up fast and try to knight rush. I was disappointed that the main objective didnt come into play at all;the AI randomly resigns, and you can win by conquest.

Balance 2

The main enemy had one force that could probably give a beginner player trouble, but my TC actually killed it off singlehandedly. Its about as balanced as any 1v1 on black forest.

Creativity 2

Its a reasonably try to changeup a random map with some story, the relics mission, etc. But in the end it is just a random map really as the relics dont come into play unless you just want some gold income.

Map Design 2

Regardless of what one thinks about how to judge old maps and how standards have changed, the simple fact is that this map is a random generated Black Forest. The commentator before me suggested the map was fascinating and it may very well have been in '99, for i remember playing multiplayer on this map nearly exclusively before gaining confidence to play on other maps, but its no more or less than a random map.

Story\Objectives 3

There is a story, but its somewhat on the lightweight side. The instructions were clear enough, even the ones in german.

Final Thoughts: Its a simplistic scenario from the olden days that did nothing to cause offense but little to earn praise.
