Well here's that promised review :.)


The Bridges

Playability: 3.5

Playing this map was interesting challenge but as mentioned it is best to play on multiplayer but with quite a bit of micro-management I was able to hold all bridges against a wolf and a caliph with deathmatch >2 ai advantage by lowering the speed to 20 and getting multiple groups of 10 crossbowmen on each bridge early on each bridge and the need to branch out for important resources like iron and farmland sufficient to make at least 3 wheat farms which were more than enough to support me using the multiple worker glitch----very useful,check it out in the utility section if you haven't seen it before.The wolf destroyed all bridges but one with trebuchets except for the last one which macemen defended,the points subtracted are as follows

1 point-----destroyed and impassable bridge problems

.5 point-----small lacking of oasis on the top of the map.

Balance: 4
The balancing factor was very good except for the starting positions which were a little off each other but the resources were well laid out and it felt very symmetrical without feeling unnatural.Good work

Creativity: 3.5
The canyon bridge scenario type is a bit common but it is nonetheless interesting and not to mention fun to play,I see you put some though into this map-that is good :.) .

Map Design: 4
You could have avoided the destroyed bridges problem by putting a small side ridge that acts as an indestructible bridge to the other side in the event that the bridge be destroyed (a favorite tactic of online players on these kinds of maps)but the terraining was good but the oasis looked a tad strange-try to put little scraps of scrub around the outside of oasis land.

Story/Instructions: 3
Although there was no story to accommodate this map the instructions were fairly good and they told of key problems which would occur,it is good for instructions to get right to the point and I feel this is what yours did.

Additional Comments:
An interesting bridge war map,I think that your maps show increasing talent and I think that if you continue to hone your skills you will become a very good mapmaker.
