Playability- was not that addictive also i only played it once before i beat it on hard. The fact that Gandalfs men were their at the start put this down alot.
Balance- Not any good need to work on AI when they bust down my gate they just stood there or went and killed the stairs to the main bit of the keep.
Creativity- one of the many helms deep maps not very creative but it was still ok.
Map Design- Map was quite good except could have done with more dirt and shubs.
Story and Instructions- well i liked the lord of the rings so you have to get a 4 here

Playability - the map is okay and quite challenging on hard, but the BIG drawback is that the Rohirrim are there from the beginning. If you get them inside the keep to reinforce the other forces, you would become nearly invincible. I hope you fix this if you are going to update your map. It's a 3.
Balance - okay, the enemy is strong, but somewhat easy to trick. The AI is okay, except they sometimes try to breach down the entire castle, even if there is a gap in the walls! These guys can easily be dealt with with archers. I'm in a good mood today ang gives it a 4.
Creativity - actually both a 1 and a 5. There are quite a lot of Helm's Deep maps out there, but LOTR is a great movie, isn't it??? And that's why there are a lot of interpretations on how to make the Helm's Deep fortress. 4.
Map Design - The castle is well made, but the terrain lacks details. 4 for the castle, 3 for the terrain - but the castle counts the most. 4.
Story/Instructions - The story is LOTR (a great story!), and the instructions for this map are good compared to other maps. 5.
