This map is incredibly fun to play! The fighting is quick and intense. It takes some time until your forces out in the fiels get overwhelmed, but you need the time, and who doesn't enjoy watching spearmen getting massacred? =P
Anyway, as I already said; quick and intense fighting.
I admit that this map was perhaps a little too tough for me. I did beat it, but it took several attempts (perhaps a little too many), but the fighting is great, the invasions are actually timed VERY nicely (the armoured troops show up in just the right moment) and overall, it's a real thrill, but a great fun one!
As this is based upon a game, I actually thought of taking one point off, but in the end, it's the map, not the background that counts. The castle is unique and I really like the trenches.
Map Design: 5
Wonderful! The map design is awesome! The map is rather small (300x300 with a lot of it being ocean/moat) but still fits a lot into it. I really like the roads and the trenches.
The field has a high level of detail and looks very nice. Also, the little island is fantastic!
My only comment would be the castle, which looks a little odd...
This is probably what hurts the map =(
The story isn't very long, and rather basic, IMO.
A great map overall, but invest a little more time in the story next time. Looking forward to your next submission.

Thx for the review Jasper Tudor. But what do u mean " the castle was rather odd" ?

"which looks a little odd..." would be the quote =P
Anyway, I think that in all, the walls are bit too high, you could have settled with mid-plain walls all over the castle. Also, the fact that the walls change height looks pretty strange.
The interior is pretty crowded, and in all I think the castle has a little odd shape: two boxes linked together.
Edit: Didn't notice until now: Nice with the archer on top of the cathedral!
