Tis a time of peril and suffering.You will be taken to task by the Hordes of Mordor.They are a sickenimg lot.Dare not look away for a moment from the battle.You have been given the power to turn them back .You have a sceret tactical advantage that the design will give your troops.It ,in itself, will not be enough.You must command the positioning of troops a certain way, not allowing them to be flanked.It is a classic strategy taken out of the tex books ,on Napoleonic Wars." taking a charging force in different directions will bring them to naught."soften the blow in other words.Taking them on piecemeal with a superior force will decimate the mometum! The attraction to them is the economy machine.gangup on them while their tearing down the granery etc.and whip that butt. I hope you find it fun.
I can't just update my review - for this change I am going to have to write a brand new review! This is a much better map, plays through fine and is well balanced with miuch better map design especially with the castle.
I worked out what was making the AI attack so well far too late as the swordsmen poured into the castle. This is slighty unrealsitic but makes the map play very well and makes a real challenge! I lost the first time around but was more careful on the second attempt and defended at narrow points and attempted to maximise archer firing time by moving them around the castle. A good fun map to play especially if you love a nice big fight - overall it easily deserves the solid 7/10.
For design and creativity this score is close to being higher as there is now a nice castle and plenty of map design features. The map design features are not of the highest standard but easily averagem and it is nice to see the author has taken my first review's advice on board! Now, for the future it shouldn't be too hard to raise this score to 4 for both map design and creativity.
Storyline, the same as in my first review is absaloutely fine. I wouldn't cling onto the LOTR storyline for too long though, lol! A fine little description worthy of a 3. Overall this is highly entertaing bloodbath of a map! Good work and great to see a lot of improvement.
