Playability: Well, personnaly I got rid of what I did not need in the castle in order to get some wood as with the invasion, it's almost impossible to get some out of the castle, one wall side only being in contact with the land. I started producing some weapons, but found out that the amount of forces provided at the beginning is sufficient to hold the all invasion. No need to produce food, there is plenty...
Balance: You post your crossbowmen and archers on the entrance wall and watch the enemy get killed. As easy as that. And that was in very hard... You start with only a huge amount of stone, pitch and ale; that's it. No wood...
Also, there is only one invasion, once you've killed them all, it's over.
Creativity: Yes, the boat is nice. That's why you get a 3. Besides, nothing special to say. The map can improve a lot.
Map design: Flat land, impossibility to build apple orchard, wheat farm nor hop farm that appear in the menu, due to the height of the lanscape... No iron or stone to collect when the iron mine and quarry appear in the menu... The main part of the map is covered with water, no land to exploit...
