Sometime the the seventh or eighth century, the Islamic empire captured Palestine from Byzantium. This scenario places you in command of the Byzantine Jerusalem garrison. You must defend to city for 80 minuted. This file makes a challenging single or multi-player file.
It is a good scenario But as most comments have I would like to point out some flaws *just so you can improve it and make it better* Well 1st let me start with, ALL of your ALLIES are neutral to you *Mabey its just my computer* So that the people you are trying to defend *Such as the Port town of Tel-Aviv* Shoot at you with any thing that they have in your town and thats not really fun, heheh that is UNLESS you give one of the willing comps 100 resorces so theyd join you but why would you Charge someone to Save your life? *mabey if they charged you? heheh* And when the Computer says charge...they dont charge. I recommend trying a new AI since Blacksmith has got a place for you to get them? Well thats all I have at the moment ill give more feedback on this Scenario later when *or if* I beat it. It seems like a cool scenario just needs some work.

(my review is kinda like the one the blacksmith would do with the Playability,Balance,etc)
Overall Score 2.2
First i would like to say Octavian Augustus,It was a Good idea and i see you put some time into it but there were lots of bugs and mistakes.I was really confused and diddnt really get the whole thing till i thought about it and actully looked in the map maker to see exactly what you were doing....
Playability- 1: Again like i was saying at first,There were lots of bugs and mistakes. I think if you would of included a custom AI it would of made it play better and probably would of helped get a better score here.
Creativity- 2: Well the idea was good,yet not to orignal.There are quite a lot of maps like this one out there.Not much else to say on creativity.
Balance- 3: If you fix the bugs and everything goes fine the balance is pretty good.I found it a little bit easy after i figured everything out.The amount and type military they give you at the beggining is average and it is possible to kill the attackers with that army.
Map Design- 3: Ok I really kinda felt that the map was a random map that was edited a bit.The towns were average.All in all i think it was ok.
Story/Instructions- 2: This is where and why i was confused about the whole thing at first.The story was pretty good and it was a good idea but the instrusctions diddnt give you much and i was really confused.
Like i said it was a good idea but i think Octavian Augustus should of really put more time and testing into this map.
