Have fun playing it and if you have any helpful comments, do e-mail me.
Please see the readme for a complete list of improvements.
Playability- Almost all the games were pretty enjoyable. I really loved how the author used Minamato to get paid to give you hints in the game, and then at in the last scenario after you pay him he gets killed ROTFL.
Balance- The games balance was pretty good. Most of the games were pretty tough, but not boring or impossible.
Creativity- The game really didnt use any new tricks, and the game really didnt use any interesting triggers. But i did really like how he used Minamato, and the market music he used.
The Map design overall was alright. The author made the city's look pretty realistic, but he really didnt use any a lot of eye candy, and the deserts didn't look to good either.
Story/Instructions- The author did an excellent job with the story and instructions, it was definitley the best part of the campaign. At the start, he gives you a detailed map of the Aswan area, and tells you exactly what your objectives are. The story was also good. He used an interesting historical idea, that hasn't been used before.
In conclusion, "The Invasion of the Saracens" was a solid overall campaign. The author did a good job on pretty much all aspects of the game.
