Playability - Playability was good. There was plenty of space to build on and I never really felt bored while building my castle. However, I suggest the downloader to place a few signposts on the map if you want invasions (which is possible in the V.1.2 patch).

Balance - You can't really rate the balance of a landscape map, so I just rated it 5.0.

Creativity - There was nothing creative on the scenario. Map design was quite simple and since there was no story, I didn't have any other choice but to rate it 1.0. But it doesn't make the scenario any worse to play.

Map Design - Map design was below average. I did not like the boulders which did not look natural and some of the hills could have been equalized. Some more terrain textures and natural eye-candy like rocks and more vegetation would have made the map better. Also, I recommend using the smaller brush sizes and using the height tools more. Some more animals would have been nice, too.

Story/Instructions - There was no story, so I had to rate this category 1.0, too.

All in all, there was nothing special, but the scenario can still be enjoyable to play if you like building a castle on a map with open space.
