Playability: Why haven't I played this map before?! No idea, but i'm glad I have as it's great fun! Nice to get away from overly technical scenarios at times and just have a good old fight. You can play this as either attacker or defender as each has it's benefits, but the best fun is had by defending. This is because of your Lord, who isn't where he should be!! Take note, it took me five attempts to work out why (I play too many maps, getting swamped by them!!). Great idea and a twist on the original.
Balance: It's nice to play a map where you aren't blessed with hundreds of troops. As a defender you are somewhat spaced out, but this goes with the story and it is clear to me why the author has presented this. You have two goals here: try to protect your Lord and attack the invading hordes. Quick thinking is required.
Creativity: Okay, so based on a previous map but the recreation here does the original justice and in my opinion is justifiably creative enough to be different.
Map Design: Simple in design yet very well done, in so far as it captures the scene well. Flattish land with some terrain and loads of trees to represent a great forest. Nicely laid out.
Story/instructions: Mainly presented on the introduction screen before the game laucnhes. Decent write-up.
In summary: liked it a lot! Simple enough but this is not detracting from the fact that it's a very well done map. Good fun... what gaming should be all about. Have a look.
