My first submission to this site. It\'s a Learning campaign similar to the William Wallace campaign, but you controll the Romans during their rule over the Celts. You face Two real Celtic leaders, Vercingetorix and Boudicca in two of the last three scenarios.
I did use the \'Rome at War\' mod so it will look a bit strange if you don\'t have it installed.
The instructions with this campaign suggest that you download a modpack, however you do not have to ,the game will still play. You have to set the difficulty level to "Standard"(not mentioned)
PLAYABILITY: This is a learning campaign so it will not be as much fun as an actual game. The beginning of the first scenario is very basic and easy to follow, as it explains the how too's of moving a player from one spot to another ,then grouping players together , eventually attacking an outpost. There is some confusion however when you get to your camp and a "wonder" suddenly appears behind you on the road , perhaps to keep in the bandids that appear inside your town. A gate would have been a better choice. The fourth scenario does not load unless you set the game difficulty to moderate.
BALANCE: Again this is a learning campaign which is basic ,and you move along through the scenarios step by step until you complete it and move on to the next one.
CREATIVITY: The only creativity to be had is the the idea of a learning campaign with a roman civilization ,which you will not have unless you download the modpack ,which i do not suggest if you are new to the game.
MAP DESIGN: The maps are basic types typical for a learning campaign.
STORY/INSTRUCTION: This is perhaps the weakest part of the scenario. First the instructions fly by to fast and then disappear. There was no instructions as to using the the "bugle icon" to view past instructions. There are words missing in some of the instructions . After you are taught how to create villigers ,an instruction appears and says that you will eventually have to build more houses ,but doesnt show you how , i beleive it does show up latter when you have to build a barracks. The instructions on creating units from the barracks was "Click barracks and crate auxila button 5 times". The game seems to have had little playtesting ,as these spelling and typing mistakes would have been detected and corrected.
