I copied and pasted your Short Description to your description and changed the number of scenarios from 3 to 2.

There are not three but two scenarios, Franco-Swiss Wars and Franco-Swiss Wars II. The first scenario is impossible to lose while the second is impossible to win.

In the first scenario, you are on a small island covered with flower patches and control Reynald de Chatillon and 15 Paladins to slaughter Sieur de Metz and 10 Light Cavalries. You win without touching the mouse and zero losses. There is no way to lose the scenario apart from deleting your own units.

In the second scenario, you are on an ice map, dirt paths and five haystacks lead you to the north and I wonder where the hay grows. Player 1 has 18 Two-handed Swordsmen and 9 Crossbowmen to attack a fort defended by palisade walls, a castle, 5 watch towers, 20 Skirmishers, Eric the Red and 20 monks converting your squad. There is no way to win the scenario apart from cheatig or typing 'I r winner'.

The Hundred Years War was between the French and the English, not between the French and the Swiss.

However, there was a battle between French and Swiss during the time but unrelated to the Hundred Years War, on 26 August 1444 near Basel, St. Jakob at the river Birs, which was part of the Old Zürich War. The seven cantons of the Old Swiss Confederacy besieged the city of Zürich, which had an alliance with Frederick III, Holy Roman Emperor, who asked Charles VII of France to send an army to relieve the siege. Charles VII had idle troops because of the truce with Henry VI of England and informed of a Swiss army of 20,000 near Zürich he sent an army of about 30,000 under the command of his son the Dauphin, later Louis XI of France. A Swiss force of about 1,500 soldiers stopped the French at the river Birs and crossed to attack knowing it will be their death. The Swiss lost with less than 20 escaping alive but killed 8,000 so that the French withdrew from Swiss territory probably guessing what 20,000 Swiss would do to them if only 1,500... The Swiss bravery became legend throughout Europe and as a result, until today the Swiss Guard protects the Pope in Rome.
Hereticlord Wow what can I say(or write)?

First Scenario: You win almost instantly, don't have to do anything.

Second Scenario: Impossible to win, all the monks, they convert your army instantly.

So overall conclusion is: It made me laugh due to the "poorness" of the gameplay.

So it was a bit fun, but that's it.
