'Saladin Climatic' is a battle scenario in which you play as the Saracens and fight against crusaders. It is not really historical though.

Playability: 4

The game was quite interesting at first and it didn't pretend to be some kind of epic scenario with a big story and stuff. You just had to fight loads of troops with loads of troops. That was fun for a while but later quite boring. Also the only method of winning ( at least to me ) was to get 30 mamelukes and 20 cataphracts, sneak around to Barbarossa's place using the 'secret path' and finish him off. It was impossible to kill the spawning enemies in the narrow cliffs.

Balance: 3

As mentioned earlier there is only one way of winning still it is quite challenging, indeed even frustrating. I could not win on hard. Managing the troops on two sides and then pulling off an assassination attempt was difficult and I enjoyed the game.

Creativity: 3

It's not really too creative and doesn't pretend to be. There is no real story just some historical figures in a battle. There was also fantasy elements like explosions and water demons which made it a little different. I liked the drunk Templars and the background music but there wasn't really much else.

Map Design: 3-

The map design is good in parts but very peculiar. Particularly the roads, too much forest and water made it seem most unlike a desert. Terrain blending and elevation was done in some places and it looked good. However there are weird things like ice near pavilions and the 'secret path' and how a monkey and water demon got there I don't know.

Story/Instructions: 3

The instructions are good enough and there are some hints. There is no real story, it is just mentioned that Saladin, Richard the Lionharted and Barbarossa are fighting it out in some kind of desert. There are also a lot of unhistorical stuff like magic explosions and a monkey and a demon. Oh and by the way, the Byzantine cataphracts fought on the crusaders side ( not Saladin's ) and the Hun Tarkans were nowhere in the picture.

Additional Comments:

Interesting first scenario - certainly worth playing once or twice. Keep up the good work :)
