“Aztec Campaign” is a 5 scenario campaign set in a fictional mesoamerican setting. While it is overall a drag to complete it does have it’s high points.
Playability- With long boring periods and a major bug in the end of the second scenario where it does not allow you to win (you’ll have to cheat) I had to drop the playability to a 2.
Balance- It was overall pretty easy, easier than a normal random map, and almost no challenge during the whole campaign this was not a high point. For those who want a easy B&D then this is what you want, otherwise you may want a more challenging scenario. As it is too easy to oppose any challenge the rating becomes a 2.
Creativity- While there was not any amazing creative features it did have a few interesting objectives and methods to achieve these you usually found yourself into interesting situations that were quite unique. These small creative parts were enough to keep the rating at 3.
Map Design- These maps were nothing more and nothing less than random maps. There was no breathtaking design and while it never was bad, it just didn’t live up to the potential. Overall don’t download this scenario for it’s map deisgn. The rating is a 3.
Story/Instructions- This campaign featured a story with little details but with believable changes. The instructions were clear and the hints useful. But even though there was a story and good instructions the story was uninteresting so the rating of 3 was given.
+ Clear instructions.
+/- Quite an extensive campaign.
- Major bug in the second scenario.
- A bit too easy and lacks the challenge of better campaigns.
Overall: This is a series of random maps with custom objectives and with a storyline. Some may consider it worth the download while others may not.

The review that got posted was not the intended one, my little notes to the designer were not included for some reason so I will be sending them to his e-mail...
I'm sorry for the incovinence.

Playability:Quite good,just need more improvement. But, I notice 2 error. First one is the scenario number 4,All the player's civilisation are all messed up.Eg:Player 1, soppose to be Aztecs, but it came out as britons.Player 2,soppose to be Aztecs too, but became franks. Player 3, soppose to be Aztecs but ended up to be Goths.Last, Player 4, soppose to be Spanish, but become teutons. And another error was the meeting of Cortez and the mosuntana. It was that it did not declare victory.That is a majour error.
Balance:Very good, quite interesting. More recomended for players that Noobs. But me not noob,for me,I would think this is sandbox
Creativity: I think I put it as 2.5. Sience there's no 2.5,so just estimate it into 3. quite boring., Those Scenario doeen;t have any intresting effect's like owning object's. maybe more example like creating object's. And also sign that could read.
Map Design: 3
Map Design:Very boring, The scenario are like Random map, expect for that Triggering stuff.
The story was very interesting. Hope you can devlop a better story
Overall, I think that there is room for improvement.
