Playability - 3
Everything worked fine but the map didn't have much challenge so boredom started to set it towards the end. While there were a large number of objectives none of them required a great deal of thought as resources were very plentiful and easily accessible.
Balance - 3
I completed the map at Hard on my first attempt and felt it was a bit too easy.
Creativity - 2
I felt this map lacked creativity as it had no story, a fairly featureless landscape, and nothing about it stood out.
Map Design - 3
The water features in this map were well done and looked quite realistic. Unfortunately the land areas were not up to that standard being mainly fertile low land with some trees and resources added.
Story - 1
No story or instructions were included with this mission.

This was a fun map to play, but too easy. There were plenty of goals to complete and I liked that the quarry was a long ways away from where you could build your castle. I think that some more bandit attacks would have been more fun. Overall though, this mission was enjoyable.

The map is called "... Isle". Though there is only a tiny little one in the river (space enough for a chapel), the hint in the title my help.
Dropped into the mission on very hard - it was still easy to play. Sometimes, repeated bad events happen to ocuur at the same time.
