Playability: 2.5
Despite the look of the minimap, the playability is quite cool. The AI works very well.

Balance: 1.5
This was bad. Full stop. Because there is no reinforcement army to help you, the enemy floods into the keep and kills everyone. I couldn't do anything.

Creativity: 1
Sorry, but the creativity is really bad. Look at some other Helm's Deep maps and gain some ideas. You will learn some new skills.

Map Design: 1.5
Poorly created. Appauling. Highly innacurate to the movie or the book. The causeway was straight instead of curved ... to get from behind the deeping wall to the behind the tower, you had to go up some stairs ... the keep wasn't round, just diagonal and straight ... the stream that came out of the deeping wall was way too close to the causeway ... AND there were no Riders of Rohan to save you.

Story/Instructions: 1
More should have been added. Or at least some instructions or tips.

Additional Comments:
People should dl this anyway because it was fun. I remember my first helm's deep I made when I bought Crusader. It was shockingly bad. lol. I seriously considered submitting it, but then realised, NO. Then I gained many pro skills for mapmaking, and I made another helm's deep and submitted that.
