Ok, I really don't think a 5.0 is suitable here.
My reasons:

Unit Graphics:
They were all just recolored aoe 1 nuke troopers. Since most of their stopped animations were lying down and since there is no blood I couldn't tell if they were dead or alive. The only US tank available was a mangonel so if they wanted a bigger one, too bad! When the tanks died, they dissapeered while the explosions took place and then appeared, not looking battle scared at all, just with the gun missing. I coundn't tell if they were dead or not, either. The buildings also suck, looking very fake and modern, not at all WWII-esque.

The Sound:
Very good, quite well done.

Why it got so low:
The renaming didn't work, and not only that IT KILLED MY GAME. First I ran the uninstallers. No effect whatsoever. The game just didn't start. Next I reinstalled TC. Still, the game wouldn't start. So, worst came to worst and I took out all the folders I wanted to keep and destroyed the whole AOK folder, then having to install aok, tc, and all my mod packs over again!

Overall:
With decent renaming and plyer colors, this could be great. Also, maybe replace monks with medics? Anyway, as of now, this mod really isn't worth having unless you like plumed archers and crossbowmen running around with machine gus. Even then, there is no player color on the unit anyway. This relly isn't worth the time it takes to download, so I recomend you stick to Rome at War and other stuff made by the pros.

This is one good mod! Not your best work, big_travis, but great. Mabye if you added a band of player color somewhere, like around the helmets of the infantry, or a band on the turrets of the Tanks, and around the nose of planes, and like stripes on the buildings. the campaigns are cool, a little lagy though. I congratulte you, and all those who helped you, on this amazing piece of art.

This is a great mod for use with scenario designing, and it is not designed to be used for normal games.

To review this using the guidelines sorted by The Vampire Slayer and myself:

Playability:

This has no bugs whatsoever. If you play with the patch, the destroyers do not show up, but that is a problem with all mods that replace the turtle ship after the patch. A 5.

Usefulness:

This is a very useful mod for scenario designers. It is not good for use with RM games and such, and this brings it down to a 4.

Creativity:

This is a very original mod. I have never before seen a WWII mod, and Travis has pulled this off brilliantly. Things like barbed wire, hedgehogs, and dead infantry are great additions too. A 5.

Quality:

The sound quality is brilliant. The sounds are crisp, clear, and recognisable. The anchors are perfect. Just one complaint. Some buildings look all plastic and shiny, and do not fit in. So, a 4 here.

Overall:

A 4.5 is merited here according to the guidelines. This mod is not perfect, but it is a lot more than a 2.5.

Well done, Big Travis!

Very good mod, does fall short of superb however.

First, I couldn't find the destroyer. It is listed under units, but the graphics are the same as a turtle ship.

Also, the buildings aren't very 3 dimensional is some cases.

The sounds are very good. Nice job.

Nice Mod.

Graphic Quality

Pretty good, I noticed that some things have color around them, Like Seige onager, has green between its Treads, and the barracks have puple around it. Also, the dock has some places where you can see behind it, and the building need windows

Sound
For some reason the sound is loud and I cant turn it down anymore, other than that, nice.

Thank you Big T:
When I look for a mod to play it has to be fun. This one was fun to play although not all the campaigns worked. The Commandos cpx constantly crashed. The Special Forces Campaign was fun to do. Loved the land mines.

The previous reviews were on the money regarding the artwork and unit reworking. The mod is not as good Rome at War or North America At Arms which were total conversions. This mod wont work for random games etc. but is fun for making fixed force scenarios.

My hope is that this is an ongoing mod. That it will grow with new units and options as time goes on.

Whoa nice mod, Travis! The only flaw I saw with it was that the name change doesnt work. That can be overlooked! I love the tanks! I can't wait for your next mod!!!

This is the reviewing that i take:

Graphics:

The graphic is very cool and nice,but there is some 'fizzy' colour around some units......but overall, the graphic of tanks and planes are very nice, i loved it!

Sounds:

'Hey, that's too loud! If you don't turn off the sound i will call the police!' one of my neighbour said when i playing this,the sounds like those plane crashing to the WTC!That's the why i reduce you a 0.5 marks.You better make the volume lesser.

Usefulness:

Well, somebody can play a World War II or III Campaign with this Mod.It's also a good Mod for scenario designer.

Overall:

This is a prefect Mod if the sound isn't too loud. Graphics are VERY good, and it is very useful. Big_Travis you done a GREAT job! I await your next Great Mod.

This is without a doubt THE single best mod made. It is amazing to think, but it almost gives you a new game. Not one of those half assed mod that change a building to look like anouther. I proper one that turns middle age seiges into massive ww2 battles.

This is the best mod I have ever seen. It is easily worth a 5.

This mod bacicly changes lots of units, Buildings and gaia others to things from word war 2.

The graphics are great.
The Sound is perfect.
And It was a very creative mod.

The file even includes 2 campaigns which is in world war 2. So it shows you how the mod can be used.
