This map was very fun. I like protecting castles against large attacking forces. Sad that the enemy siege machines didn't work, that would guarantee much more fun for the players.
Very large invasions, but the castle is very easy to defend. I forced the knights and the melee troops to the main gate, they blocked all enemies, while my archers(they were too many) shot off all of them. At my other attempt I've sent all my archers to the keep, the enemies didn't want to attack the inner gate, the archers killed all the remaining foes in 20-25 minutes (this way was a bit boring). I wanted to see a great melee fight, so I "killed" all my knights and pikemen by sending them to attack the much greater enemy forces.
In creativity the mission was good. The siege and defend was simple and the structure of the nearby village could be made much better. The knight reiforcement was good to, I liked it. But to achieve a 5 here, you must make the mission more complex.
Map Design: 4.5
The map design were much much better than good. The only thing that lowered the score was the coastline, which looked a bit ugly and the village. The mountains, the castle and the landscape looked very good.
Not much of a story, only a paragraph in the description. But it explains the situation well, also liked the fantasy names, so I give you a 3.5. :)
A nice invasion map for a first. Keep up the great job, you have talent! :)
