Playability: 3
First when I started playing the map, I really thought it is impossible, The endless waves of enemies simply overflew me. I could do nothing against them, even with the moving of my troops to the correct positions, also, I could hardly do anything with the economy due to the chaos, the enemoes had occured. But soon, I realised that the scenario is easily winnable with a very simple strategy. I saw that I had lots of gold, stones and iron, and weapons, so I sold everything, bought lots of xbows and leather armours, and trained about 70 xbowmen. With the starting troops together I had 109 crossbowmen and 67 archers on my inner walls. As I saw that they do a great defence, I simply sit back and watched as they slaughter all enemies.
In the beginning I had to do a few manouvers(key manouvers), but after that I really had to do nothing, so a 3 is a fair score.

Balance: 3
The mission was easy, yes a lot of enemies appeared, but most of them stuck at the signpost and only a small group attacked at a time (maybe my ultimate defence scared them away). And the knights striked only when I destroyed the gate, to make the remaining few troops attack at once. I won with 1% troop losses. So this map is really too far from Impossible. Maybe for an unprepared or newbie player it could be a good challenge, but the skilled ones may find it very easy.

Creativity: 3.5
This scenario has an over-average creativity. The useage of the editor and the design, the accurancy, with wich you recreated the castle mirrored the creativity of the author. The only thing, which really brings down the socre is the lack of story.

Map Design: 4
The map design was excellent, the castle looked awesome, and the surrounding terrain was good too, I liked your technique of making the swampland, the use od dead trees and shrubs. The only thing which didn't look so natural were the hills, they were suddenly bursted up from the terrain with a lot of rocks on it, they didn1T fit well in the swamp. Though, a great job, keep improving! :)

Story/Instructions: 1
No story and no instructions, just a line in the description page, but if you manage to add a story, I will happily raise the score. :)
