Excellent in all aspects....I lvoe your long opening intro's keep on making them long and interesting liek they are in all of your scenario's. At first I wondered how you would reprsent the Homeric Warrior from that time with Castle and Feudal Ages looking men but you made it feel like it was in the Ancient Times. The scenario was a bit short......but with all of the intense action packed into it could've just been me.

Balance: 5
perfect....switchin back and forth was sheer brilliance....And modifying the various units to aorund the same effectiveness was a nice idea as it spiced up the battleground with other units that did virtually the same job.

Creativity: 5
Excellent, Trojan War Theme

Map Design: 5
Suited the Scneario perfectly....as a whole it was rahter bland....but in the parts that you played in it was nice.

Story/Instructions: 5
Excellent.....Simply Perfect

Additional Comments:
Can't wait for the sequal

Emperor Aidan WOW, that was absolutly spectacular. I played three times. I'd say the most challenging part was battling on the beach. It was also the best. You should continue making campaigns like this. Great Job.

(The playability was the brilliant because you weren't in the battle right at the beginning and it wasn't too easy either!)

Balance: 5
(The balance of the scenario was very good and it wasn't too easy either!)

Creativity: 5
(Creativity was excellent too because the adventure in the scenario was really breathtaking! The storyline was very creative and exactly matched the real story of The War of Troy.)

Map Design: 5
(This was my favorite thing because the detail in the map and where it looked like the waves were coming in on the shore was excellent.)

Story/Instructions: 5
(You kept on to the story line brilliantly so it seemed very realistic. The instructions were very good also because they were very clearly explained.)

Additional Comments: I hope you the sequal to this excellent scenario and make sure it is just as good!

jml I'm not sure I could review this ~The War of ~TROY~ since... I believe we're on the same team, BUT I just want to say that: This is a pure jewel! A masterpiece! If your looking for a scenario based on the Troy's story, play this one. I don't even know any AoM Troy scenarii which could be a match for this wonder. Damn, I just finished it and I'm still out of breath. Where is the part 2!? 'loved it! Merci!
One advice if you don't mind: I played without its special music, since it's not clearly showing that there is one... I know I'm dumb, don't tell me, but some others could...

We discussed this more than once in the SD forum and members of the same design team can review a file of a team member. In our experience, team members seem to be more critical knowing that favoritism would discredit the whole team.

First, my thanks to you, Tanneur99 for pointing this out! Here we go then, not that it's gonna change much about this great rating anyway. But it's gonna be a pleasure!

Playability: 5
All went as smooth as a river. Real fast, I was not even playing anymore but just being Achilles or Hector for a while.

Balance: 5
Hard but, I believe, not as much as the true battle of Troy. For instance... I didn't die! So, in a way real tough maybe, but therefore very respectful of the true story. And great situations for experimenting some strategies.

Creativity: 5
The rythm of your scenario was probably the best creativity part of it. I realized I was truly out of breath when I finished it. As much as I was pissed to not be able to go any further!
And what about being able to play both sides! Simple, which means very, very smart.

Map Design: 5
Nothing did ever make me think I was playing an AoK scenario at any moment, disturbing me of my greek or trojan duty! And believe me, that's the greatest compliment of all.
Nice enough to look real!

Story/Instructions: 5
The whole thing was running so fast, I'm still amazed how come you didn't loose me. And you never did.

Additional Comments:
Of course, I wasn't pleased to stop too early, after fighting like hell my way to these Famous Walls... I never reached! And most probably never will... But it's was a dream, wasn't it? So... :-)

This was possibly one of the greatest scenarios I have ever played. Sceletar has done an excellent job of capturing the feel of the Trojan War and, though I haven't watched the film Troy, if it's even half as good as this scenario then I'm sure I'll enjoy every minute of it.

Playability: 5
Without a doubt one of the strongest areas for this scenario, the playability could only be improved upon if Sceletar could work miracles, in which case, why would he be making scenarios for us?
Though I did suffer from a fair bit of lag, which under review guidelines the scenario could be marked down for, I really do have too obsolete a laptop to judge anything by how smoothly it runs. (192 megs of RAM is not recommended for this scenario; it plays horribly slowly).
Thankfully, I tend to persist with a scenario despite any lag present, and in this case it reaped rich rewards. I enjoyed every minute of this scenario and I was unable to find a single bug. Overall, this scenario merits a 5 quite easily; if possible I would have given it more!
Playing as both sides was an excellent way of keeping interest in the game and also of building up empathy for both sides. Well done!

Balance: 5
This scenario was very well balanced. Despite the superior firepower of the foe at times, there was never a moment where it was too difficult and where a bit of micromanagement, concentration and sheer luck wouldn't pull me through.

Creativity: 5
Very creative! I loved the idea of showing units on ships at sea using the paths and palisade walls; while the effect wasn't exactly what I'd call brilliant, it would have been impossible to do any better and I certainly liked the originality and ingenuity shown by Sceletar in coming up with it. His creativity and sheer genius was shown in other areas as well, though I can't think of any in particular as they were all excellent!

Map Design: 5
The map design was perhaps a bit disappointing as compared to everything else, but it was still good enough to merit a 5. While a simply brilliant job was done in making the terrain look realistic and detailed, it was a bit bland in small, infrequent patches and the jungle trees did not, as has already been said in another review, work very well against the terrain.

Story/Instructions: 5
These were excellent. Full details for every aspect of the scenario was given at the appropriate time, whereas the hints were detailed, revealing and very much useful.

Additional Comments:
All in all, Sceletar has produced a wonderful scenario based upon Troy and the Trojan War. He deserves a commendation for this outstanding piece of work! Jolly well done!

Hey Akria, good review. You said that you wanted to take the ratings higher than a 5.0, usually people just go 5.0 + if they deem it perfect. ;-)
Akria62 @Mashek:
They do?
Oh dear...
I'm such a rookie... :D
