Version: Age of Kings
Number of scenarios: 11
This campaign is about the Celts invading the British and it takes place right after the learning campaign ends. It has some unique challanges and I hope you have fun with it. Good luck.

This is my first try at making a campaign, but I found it fun. This one may not be perfect, but I hope you enjoy it anyway. I am planning on making a sequel in the summer so if you liked this one you can try out the second one too.

"Siege of England" is an old campaign with nearly 4000 downloads. Its a simple setup made as a continuation of the Williance Wallace campaign, but i dont think i could recommend it to beginners;there are situations that seem impossible for an actual rookie to overcome, and there are scenarios that only work in old AoK versions where TCs dont cost stone.

Playability 2

Its rather simple and slow paced. In one B&D scenario you have to build up an eco, and they give you 40 pop, 5 vills, and 0 all resources so you will be sitting for ages to get enough houses, its very slow to get built up. Some maps are 100% broken on 1.0c as TCs didnt cost stone when the author made the maps.

Balance 2

Quite on the easy side, for instance in mission one the AI cannot attack your base, and the FF encampment your tasked to destroy will be easy enough to break after you boom up and pump knights. There are some intense moments in the next game, but for every reasonably balanced map there is a cupcake to counter it. There is a fort defense mission where the AI only has villagers, and even the hints advise you to try a early knockout.

Creativity 2

There is a decent attempt at differentiating it from a random map but not much use made of tricks and gameplay mechanics.

Map Design 2

Its random maps the whole way. Later in the campaign it gets worse as huge blank terrains start appearing.

Story\Objectives 2

It delivers the basics and borders on telling a story, but with a lack of content and poor grammar\spelling detract from even the little thats there it only gets an above minimum score. The bitmap is good but its repeated the entire campaign.

Final thoughts: If your accustomed to more complex scenarios on the blacksmith this is quite lacklustre;its a suitable continuation from the william wallace campaign as the author indicates.
