The second version of the first battle in the movie Gladiator. The initial scenario was created by Phrozen found at[url]http://stronghold.heavengames.com/downloads/php/descpage.php?type=Siege&id=16[/url]
This version lags, due to the high level of sprites.
This is also an DEFENSE based scenario, which should be played on VERY HARD. Enjoy.
Playability:.......4,...follow the authors directions and play this scenario being the defender, and on very hard, and the balance is superb. The idea is unique and very well done and since its a blast to play, the playability rates high Balance:......4, because of the above reasons. Creativity:......5, Very creative, very different and refreshing. For those getting a little burned out on the standard castle siege, this one's for you. Map Design:......4,...Not a beautiful map, but considering the subject matter, and the region in wich this battle took place, it seems appropiate, and would probably be the only design you would want to utilize for a scenario such as this one. Its functional, and I noticed the landscape is even dotted with the appropiate pine and fur trees. Story and instructions.....4,...Of course most of us know the story, as the opening battle in the movie of the same name, and the instructions are presise on how to play this scenario. Summary: A breath of fresh air to those looking for something new and different, and alot of fun. I know what a good scenario is,..and I like this one.

The playability is only a 3 because of the size it dragged my computer down HUGE I had speed setting at 40 and played as if it was 10
Nothing extravigant in map design so no 5 can be given
Story/instuctions were good, but again noting extravigant there for can't give a 5
Balance, you should not lose this, and since there is supose to be a definat winning like in the movie I give it a 4 little chance of loss you can't get a 5.
