(If you choose very hard or hard they dont attack as they should) This is my first scenario on this site and my best, but im unexperied, (i think some poeple would call me a newbie). This is really a big battle and its hard. I wanted to get a picture of the map but i dont know how to do that (yes yes, i know im stupid). This is maybe not the best scenario but its worth a try. I know im not a good reviewer but it would be very fun i YOU could write a review to ME.
This a good start from fearalex with a different look and story of the white city of Minas Tirith.
Playability- very playable, I love moving troops and trying new tactics every time I play a map so a solid 5 from me.
Balance- not bad for a first map, just that the men I had left were quite alarge amount but the enemy still gets close to getting in, a 4 for me.
Creativity- Very creative, a different look at the white city but still a good one. Very creative, just needs a bit more work with the overall map to get a five. eg landscape.
Map Design- This was good but can use a little work. There are areas that are nicely done and some not so good, alot of the area is left blank or simply covered in trees. Love the dry river though, great work. If you try to fill in most of the area of a map your score and more importantly the beauty of your map will increase. This will give the map a more full or complete look.
Story/instructions- This is a part Artus and I use to do poorly in, we didnt type much and we relised it was as important as any other aspect of the map. The story is a humerous gag on the LOTR tale and I found it very entertaining.
In the end a fun and funny map and story one I'm sure you'll enjoy.
Keep it up and your bound to do well in the future.

Ok, i'll tell you a little secret...
Fearelex and i are friends in rl life. And we made our dibutes together. Though we don't hang out that very much because we live quite a distance from each other...
Anyway, i just want to tell you, that he didn't intend to make a Minas Tirith. So i would justs want to say that the creativity is kind of bad... Because it looks a little bit like Minas Tirith. So he didn't come up with an own design of a castle.
(I'm not so good at reviewing maps, so i don't comment anything)

Playability 5/5 I like the ability to try different stratabies with your map. I have played it four times now and tried different tactics each time.
Balance 3/5 Not bad for a first try. As I said i played it four times and I beat it each time. Once the attackers have to march up the slope to the gate house near the water it is really easy to have whatever archers you have left slauter them.
Creativity 4/5 Very good map, that looks just enough like Minas Tirith to remind you of it, but different enough to make you realize that this isn't a copy of that battle.
Map Design 3/5 Like Warlord said, some areas are really cool and others are quite boring. A bit more work with the terain outside the castle would have made a differenc. The dry riverbed is cool, but the dam looks a little out of place. Maybe it is too tall.
Story 5/5 Absolutely hilarious! Dominate all wives. Hah! The download alone is worth the story.
If you want to try a map that is meant to be based off of Minas Tirith try Warlord_Design's, NAT's, or mine (Gondor Part 2: Minas Tirith by X29)
P.S. I too do not know how to post a pic of a map in the description, so any help hear would be nice.
