When I first tried this mod, I really enjoyed it much as an average unit mod :), and looking at it, it begged for a review.

Playability
Score Breakdown:

3.5 – Average: Has only one or two small bugs.

Reason Being- Well, whenever he moves, the shades of black on the ninja sort of look as if he is changing the colors. Nothing major, but distracting.

Usefulness

Score Breakdown:

4.5 – Good: In this case, the modpack is useful and/or has use for other things, but only worth using a few times or perhaps just during a Campaign.

This was the excelling part of his mod, and long time back some people begged for a ninja unit, Chimera offers just that :).

Creativity

Score Breakdown:

4.0 – Good: Pretty creative. There is something really special to it, something really innovative, but it's not unique and completely new.

that Although this would have received a 5.0 I thought some of the previous authors of the “to-be” ninja mod would be angry about giving Chimera all the credit. So I gave him a 4, plain and simple. If you made this about 5 months ago this would have gotten a 5 ;). No hard feelings, eh?

Quality
Score Breakdown:

3.5 – Average: The graphics are OK, but could be better and/or the sounds are a little fuzzy or unclear, but tolerable. The modpack looks/sounds decent in the game, but still looks like it doesn’t quite belong in AoK. The anchors are still a little bumpy, but some effort was put into it.

When I look at it the unit looks as if he has only 2 colors being used, a light black and a darker black. Kind of boring, average though. Also you could have used a blue belt as player color, maybe some day I will try making a ninja mod.

Final Thoughts


-- Playability: 3.5
-- Usefulness: 4.5
-- Creativity: 4
-- Quality: 4
-- Final score: 4

PROS
+ A modpack that should have been done months ago is finally finished
+ Very creative way of making it
+ Uses a tiny weapon
CONS
- Looks way too much like a villager
- Colors look very disordered
- Replaces the samurai.. Some people wanted to use the samurai to actually fight a ninja.
SUGGESTIONS
- Use some player color on it, but keep it a dark color
- Use a more variety of colors on the unit
- Make it replace a unit other than a samurai
- Use a swordsman as a unit template, next time :)

Overall, good job Chimera, nothing to “oooo” or “ahhh” at, but these light unit modpacks, are very useful for campaigns.
