The Byzantine Glory

Author File Description
File Details
Version: Age of Kings 1.0
Style: Mix
Number of scenarios: 2
Storyline : The Persian have just declared war to the Byzantines. The byzantine king calls upon Belisarius to make things go better, and explains him that to make the Persian army retreat, there must be something critical happening in their own capital. Belisarius's first task is to break open a way into the Persian country : he must destroy a Persian town.

Once this done, Belisarius must make himself small to infiltrate the Persian country, as to find a way to murder the king. But the capital can only be accessed by going through a jungle, and this jungle is full of dangers, and it is even more dangerous because at a point, the Persian realize there is something bad going on, and start hunting Belisarius. He also meets the byzantine spies, already implanted in the country, but they get attacked and slaugthered at one point of the scenario. Finally, Belisarius, who had found men during his journey through the jungle (from the help of the byzantine spies, and from the byzantine prisoners captured by the Persian), finally sieges the Persian capital (who is obviously ready to welcome him), and manages to murder the Persian king (who, as a matter of fact, was running throughout the city to garrison in any possible building, making it very complicated to get him).

But that was not enough to stop the Persian army, which did not get the message. It was still marching on Byzantine, and while they were moving, Belisarius was doing his best to catch up with the army and alert the king before it was too late (the king was supposing the army was retreating). With some spare time, Belisarius prevents the king of the terrible danger and the king gives him the task of setting up defences against the Persian army, who would arrive in no time. Belisarius won that final battle, and Persia would then never attack Byzantine again.

Scenarios :

A Persian War : In this map, you must destroy the Persian base, which will allow you to enter the Persian country. But the Persian will give no rest ! Take advantage of the map's disposition to win. Some interesting triggers, such as a small outpost village being attacked by Persians, those being thwarted by the village's little defence, then this defence being killed off by another Persian raid.

Infiltration in Persia : In this map, you control a growing army. This is a non-villager map, only tactical army management is required. You must make your way safely through the Persian Empire, through jungles, shallows, and maybe Persian outposts, to be able to siege the Persian capital. (DOWN FOR THE MOMENT)

The Great Battle : In this map, you must organize your troops before the Persian army arrives. You have lots of troops, unlimited credit thanks to the byzantine king, and some villagers. You must take advantage of the terrain to set up some well-placed towers, and place your troops with a clever strategy. Many assault points to protect.

Additionnal comments : The AI may play poorly during "The Great Battle", which means that with some game styles the last scenario may be easier than with others.

Thank you for downloading this campaign :) And enjoy it !

Playability: 4
The scenarios were good play. All the triggers were functioning properly and that made the playability easy.
Balance: 4
The Balance was ok but could have been a little more interesting.
Creativity: 4
Wasn't so creative as far as the scenarios go, could have been better imagining and so also more fun to play.
Map Design: 3
Nothing extra ordinary here, could have included more eye candy i didnt see any that i would call one. ordinary map especially the second scenario.
Story/Instructions: 3
The Story was well prepared although nothin connected with history but well put up.
Additional Comments:
good campaign all in all but a little too short, this campaign needed more scenarios than 2.
