Review of Land of Hope by arhanghel

Overview score 4.0

Summary:
A challenging map that will require more than one try to win. Great fun. You will not regret downloading this one :-).

Playability: 5
Outstanding. A lot of decisions to make and different things to try. I was constantly repositioning my troops during battle. I was hooked. I had to beat it. Eventually I did. The AI behaved well and kept me on my toes.

Balance: 4
Excellent. I was defeated three times on hard. I then relented and beat it on normal. The invasions increase in power. Very nicely done. Resources and food are always a problem as the invasions both assault the keep and damage the economy.

Creativity/Map Design: 4/4
Excellent. The use of various rocks, stones, pebbles, and bushes around the keep to make it difficult to wall out the invaders was very well done. The nice ravines around the keep were a good feature that contributed to interesting AI behaviour. Resource placement was excellent too. The keep was nice. It was very tight for space and this was part of the challenge especially as there were fires.

Story: 3
Average. Not much of it but it was there on the site and in the map. It needed no special instruction. Could have done with a mini-map on the site page. The spelling/grammar could be better but it was easily readable, contained nothing irrelevant and was short and to the point.

Additional comments:
I just found it when scrolling through maps looking for something. I don’t remember downloading it but I am glad I did :-) When I saw the minimap I was attracted to play it. I put its minimap on web space as there is not one on this DL page.
