A pretty good scenario that has excellent map design and well-rounded good scores. Definitely one of the more impressive scenarios I have played.
The playability was mediocre. The author tried to use extremely complicated trigger manuevers that are not fool-proof. I have played it twice and discovered three separate bugs, with one of them being a fatal bug. I won't tell you what the fatal bug is, but it does make the scenario a lot easier.
The balance is also mediocre. As I said, a pretty bad bug makes the only hard part of the scenario, the sieging of the city and assassination of the king, extremely easy. However, the rest of the scenario was good so a satisfactory 3 is deserved.
The creativity is pretty good. A modpack is included which makes gameplay much better and I liked the complex trigger manuevers very much. However, because these trigger manuevers sometimes fail, a full five is not what should be given.
The map design is fantastic and definitely the one of the best I have seen. The author made the terrain look very good and the city design was amazing. Two thumbs up for map design!
The story and instructions are good. The instructions was good, as you know what you are doing all the time. The story was also there. But, the story was a little bleak and kind of illogical. So, a 4 is the mark that goes here.
- Good map design
- Good creativity and story
- Mediocore playability and balance
Final Thoughts: This author is definitely one of the most talented I have ever seen since I don't ever recall giving somebody a 3.8 for their first scenario ever. I hope to that he continues to design scenarios and campaigns. Again, two thumbs up for him!
