Playability : 4
This is a pure siege maps with a castle desgined for functionality. While it is a good effort, I found that there were some issues with balance which made the game less fun. Otherwise it works very well with the AI.
Balance : 3
The balance needs some revision since there are 2 or 3 moats around the castle after each wall, so if the AI does not have any "digger" units (like macemen), then it cannot attack and i saw this problem creep up more than once during my games.if the moats were reduced in size and more macemen were added the map would have perfect balance IMO.
Creativity : 4
A well though out castle and cool looking terrain in the part where the AI starts...good work.
Map design : 4
I have mixed feelings about this...some areas are very detailed (like the forest with a nice litte stream and pathways) while others have clearly been neglected (like the beach behind the castle...but overall it is a good looking map and a great castle.
Story/Instructions : 4
A nice offbeat story which just about gets you ready for the carnage...
Overall : A nice and pure siege map which should be seen to see how to make the AI work with your map...if it were just a little bit improved, It would me my all time fav. ! anyway, it is a must play map.
Good job Tedman!
