A slightly boring map is all i have to say. I dunno about the people where you live, but i won this map with over 100 soldiers left. I give it a three because it really could be fun to play if it was much harder. I noticed a glitch. You can enter the ground where the castle is, from the first wall. I won with over 150 men that way.
That i had 100 men alive when winning proves it is has a bad balance. I noticed that i played on normal, and you suggested hard, but it didn't make any bigger difference. I made really no bigger effort and i won on the first try with many soldiers left. But i guess i used a good strategy, and it maybe isn't too... too easy, so i give it a generous 3.
As i said, a very simple, but pretty decent castle. Built in the mountains/hills, but it could be done better. I think dungeons or something like that would fit in, and make it would make it more creative.

What to say?
A pretty generous one for obvious reasons.
It's an an average map to the look of it. But it's too easy to win. Make it harder and work on the map design and castle design as well... Test the map more before uploading here, because it was a bit too easy. And write a story!!!
dude that map is easy!!!!!!! i compleated it first time lol try harder nxt time

I'm not downloading this map since I hate Siege-that scenarios (good or bad). But I just want to remind other reviewers that this is a Siege-that scenario, meaning that the designer hasn't designed the landscape himself. It seems like he's being judged too hard (or too good) for a landscape he did not create.

This is a generous 3. It's really more like a 2.7, because this map was super easy.
yeah, so I only lost 5% of my army, on very hard, no less.
To be honest, and not trying to be mean, I've seen better.
