You are in position to conquer to Land of Explosives. You must be excited, but the author doesn't say. Soon you find the wonders of the land, which is suggested by the title, lots of explosions. They are interesting visually, but like the rest of the scenario, they lack substance, polish, or meaning.
PLAYABILITY: This scenario is pretty short, but the majority of it is marching your army around. This is never fun. After playing, you don't feel any need to play again because you have experienced all the scenario has to offer the first time around. I suppose some marching is necessary in an invasion scenario, but it's up to the author to keep it to a minimum and make sure there are interesting things on the way. This scenario has no bugs.
BALANCE: This scenario is extremely easy. I'm a somewhat experienced AOK player, but someone less experienced might not use counters effectively or would fall into more of the traps along the way.
CREATIVITY: This scenario had a few redeeming creative elements. I liked the explosions. Some were used for traps and others were used for eye-candy. They were used effectively, but they did get a little repetitive. The author also used a mod to make little flames.
MAP DESIGN: This map was below random map quality. Most of the map was a dirt 2 path surrounded by grass 1 and oak forest. If you don't feel comfortable making a map from scratch, generate a random one and modify it to suit your purposes.
STORY/INSTRUCTIONS: I never thought I'd give a 1 in this category before. One sentence was in instructions and one was in hints. They player could have done without them too. That was pathetic. Authors, put work into your stories. Tell about events leading to the scenario. Try to make your objectives more varied then just to kill certain people. Give personal information about main characters. Make valauble hints for the player to use if inclined. If all this is done, a good story score is assured. But this ....
The concept of this scenario was good, but it was executed poorly. I wouldn't recommend downloading this scenario unless you are a newbie who has trouble with micro management, knows next to nothing about the game, and likes explosions.
