It is with great regret that I have to proclaim “The Defeat of Germania” the worst campaign that I have ever downloaded here at AOK Heaven. This campaign was just extremely poor and I advice everyone to keep clear.
I don’t think there is a word to describe the playability of this campaign. The whole concept in this campaign has gone wrong. As a result, we find ourselves with a game boring beyond comprehension. I have to say that killing over 200 militia with cataphract wasn’t fun, and it was a very sad experience.
The balance is totally wrong. In AoK TC we all know the power of cataphract versus infantry. However, fighting with cataphract against militia is horrible thing to do. I don’t see how anyone can die in this game. In fact, I think we could easily win without even looking at the computer screen. Now, putting more challenging units or simply upgrading the enemies units could have easily fixed the balance.
The creativity in this game is virtually non existent. This games reminded me a bit of the tutorial from ES because of the first task. Follow the pretty flags and yeah mission accomplished. Now, go kill millions of innocent units and victory shall be yours. I’m sorry guys, but I simply do not see any creativity here.
The map design is anything but pretty. In fact, the map design was poorly made, but nonetheless it is still better than a random blank map by all means.
The storyline isn’t developed at all. Kill the evil German tribes and so on…
The instructions were virtually non existent and weren’t all that helpful.
In the end, this is a good example of a mediocre campaign. Virtually everything here has gone wrong so take my advice and stay far away from this one.
