This is my first attempt at a campaign where you lead a briton army to try and reclaim several settlements from spanish control. It involves many varied objectives to complete and there is several different paths to victory, so you can replay f you want
The Liberation of Cornwall is a one-scenario campaign in which you play as Prince Frederick, the son of the King of England. The Spanish under General Alonso has invaded England and conquered most of the county of Cornwall. The English King sends Frederick to defend Cornwall and to reconquer its towns captured by the Spanish.
This scenario was interesting and fun to play. I liked the style of Liberating towns one by one by defeating the Spanish influence there under command of one captain for each town. It was fun to move around with troops around the map. I had to use good strategy in some places, not just trample down everything straight-away. But there is one negative - When the scenario turns to a B&D style, the enemy doesn't have an economy. However, this scenario is really enjoyable. It was a good experience to play this scenario.
I played it on moderate. It was not very easy to complete but not hard too. I think this has a fairly good difficuly level. After pushing ahead to the far base of the Spanish, I had to use good luring strategy to defeat the troops. After that I breached through their walls and reached near to General Alonso. He escaped and I very slightly failed to destroy his transport ship. In the next try, I won. This transport destroy is difficult if you hadn't built much ships by the time. I used the trigger created ships to handle the transport. The author has hinted to build ships, but this hardship is limited to that stage only. The overall balance of the game seems easier than the ideal balance.
This scenario has good creative elements. There is a squad leader for each Spanish-captured town. The arrival of the naval aid-force was interesting. I hadn't trained any navy or build dock throughout the game. The escort of Truro mayor from Falmouth to Truro is one creative thing.
Map Design: 5
The map design is excellent. The map is very detailed and the terrains were eye-pleasing. The snow area to the north-west is notably good. The design of the towns and the mines are good. When I typed marco polo, I found that some places are not much detailed but this doesnot affect the ratings since it is inaccessible map that is not much detailed. All accessible map was highly detailed.
The story was very good and so were the instructions. The town-liberation process was enjoyable. Only problem was that when I defended the town of Truro from the Spanish attack, nothing happened. But I soon understood why this happened and deleted all spanish troops converted to my side in the battle (their captain was among those converted). Also it should have been specified that for capturing the Green castle, we should move a soldier near to it. But there was not much problems. All the instructions were adequate and good.
This is one of the best campaigns I downloaded. I really think this campaign didn't get the deserved attention. Thanks to Knuckster for this campaign. This is a MUST DOWNLOAD for everyone.
