Rajasthan in western India is the home of the valiant Rajputs. Throughout history, they have repeatedly fought for the honour of the country. But the Rajputs of Chittor surpasses all, in deeds of bravery and personal sacrifice. And their women are no less heroic, chittors queen Karma Devi had defeated the powerful hordes of Qutab-ud-din. The Mughals are the first invaders who have succeeded in occupying Chittor. Stationing forts in serveral areas, the Mughals have slowly started to expand their empire. Almost all major Rajput kings have surrended to the enemy. But you, Rana Pratap, the king of Chittor refuse to. This will be your fight against the might of the Mughal empire.
With Akbar coming to the throne of the Mughal empire in the early 1556, the Mughals had become a part of India. As a conqueror Akbar triumphed all over North India. He added Gujarat, Bengal, Orissa, Kashmir & Sidh to his empire.He was victorious in central and south India too. In his efforts to consolidate his empire, Akbar appointed Rajput nobles to the highest posts in his empire. Thus he succeeded in winning the goodwill of the Hindus. The Rajputs flocked to serve him and do him honour.
During this period when almost everyone in Northern India had bowed before Akbar, only the lone, unbending figure of Rana Pratap stood against him. He refused to accept Akbar's supremacy. Had he agreed to surrender, Rana Pratap could have led an easy and comfortable life at the court of Akbar. But for this brave Rajput warrior king, his freedom was his honour, which he cherished even more than his own life. Greatly outnumbered by Akbar's huge forces, he lived a hunted life in the jungles and suffered grave hardships. But these sufferings only spurred him on in his struggle for freedom.
It is a challenging but fun game if played 2v3 against wolves,saladins and lionheart.Though you get certain rush to build at the start of the game.
The balance was good,each keep have their own plot of land to build on.The only thing is that the iron deposites are too little.Player on the bottom of the map have to fight for the little plot of iron deposit.If against AIs with big castle,its realli difficult to mine iron.
Great creativity,the oasis,tress and rivers blend into the map nicely.Along with the raised land and waterfall,its just such a beautiful sight.
Map Design: 5
The map design was also great.Each player has just the right space to finish their castle.The raised lands also provide fire support to archers.Still what i like the most is the ponds on the map.They look absolutely beautiful with the stones surrounding it.
The story is thrilling and original.The additional picture just made the story even more exciting.
This is a really great map,no flaws,no glitches,its realli fun and challenging.
