Saladin's Beirut

Author File Description
Ryan the Great
File Details
Version: Age of Kings
Style: Fixed Force
Saladin, Sultan of Egypt and Syria, plowed through the Mediteranean, reclaiming territory lost to the French during the Crusades. Join Saladin and his army as you storm Beirut in an attempt to march to Al Batrakiyah and conquer Beirut.

This scenario is very historically accurate, from everything from the map to the monuments of Beirut.

Try it. Thanks.

When I started playing this I was very pleased to see that the designer put a lot of effort in. The city of Beirut is a copy of the real city, exactly the same. The author most have gone through a lot of trouble to do research. The history section gives you a full explanation of Beirut, and Saladin's forces. Unfortunately, the intro doesn't contain a bitmap.

It was fun to play, when I attacked one of the villages that supplies Beirut, the forces of Beirut attacked me in the back. I was losing many units, and when I had 4 or 5 left, reinforcements arrived. Well I'm pretty sure the author played the scenario about Constantinople, this borrows some ideas from that one, but the author did a nice job with the idea.

The map design was excellent; like I said, the main city of Beirut is a near copy of the real one. But the cities that supplied Beirut aren't quite as good, and some parts of the map are only grass1, small parts, but it could have been done better.

There was one big problem: the Ai. When I was invading Beirut, the computer resigned. The author used the standard Ai, so it was also sending chats, and changed diplomacy with his allied villages, so this area definitely needed improvement.

Anyway, it's fun to play but maybe too short and a bit too easy.
