The laggiest map I ever played. Units just stand around since the computer can't keep up with itself. Takes 1/2 hour for the units to move as you direct them. Then
your armies move about randomly and god powers are fired
for you. Played? I sure as hell couldn't play it.
While it represents (sort of) the imbalance of the
actually story, there were too few defenders.
You took a good scene from a good book/movie and tried
to represent it. It had a dull map, dull units, and
Map Design: 2
3 walls, a hill with a wonder, and a hill that Gandalf
can come down. There was 'variation' in 1 forest off to
the side, and sometimes some sand, and a city tile for
the hill with the wonder.
There was a story of 'defend the wall' and other randomly
stated military clichés. Every once in a while there's
a camera track with a name as the dialog, though that
character is not featured in the shoot. Basically boiled
down to a standard 'defeat the army' map.
I'll tell a real story for a realistic map.
So there's these massive armies fighting over some ring
or some such, and I saw the opportunity to make it big
in Middle Earth as a soldier. Now there's 2 armies, the
really big, overpowering hordes of darkness that will
stamp out the existence of the weak races under their
boots, and the pussy heroes that fight for justice and
give their lives for some cause. I'll obviously live to
spend my war spoils in the former, so I enlist with
Saruman. Now Saruman is a good man, and gave me command
over his stupid but cheap orc army. Hey, more money,
less chance of me dying, so logically I signed up.
We marched on Helm's Deep, which didn't look like the Helm's Deep I knew. Guess the Brass (commanders) took a wrong turn back at that "Helm's Deep ->" sign. When I arrived there, however, someone must have cast a spell on my orcs, because they became.. human soldiers. The dirty, blood-thirsty orcs were more to my liking, but whatever. So we get to the wall and there's like, 3 people. It took a while to get my units to kill them, but it was easy picking. Eventually there's more that come from behind, but before they could do any major damage, the Brass came to
the battle and told me I defended Helm's Deep, when I thought i was capturing it.. For my efforts I recieved
3 months paid-vacation to Lothlorien, where every elven
women is good looking. Not wanting to miss my chance at
some play, I took the local train across the mountain
and had a kid with Earldoria, forever leaving my military

TOO MUCH LAG!!! you shouldn't have putt some many units!! it lags real bad sometimes. HALF THE UNITS YOU PUT ARE ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING!
not much of this. you have a big amount of units compared to player one. and a question, AM I SUPPOSE TO PLAY AS PLAYER 2? BECAUSE WHEN I PLAYED THIS SCENARIO I WAS PLAYING AS THE ENEMY
NOT MUCH OF CREATIVITY. this doesn't look like Helms Deep. AND WHAT THE HECK DO YOU MEAN BY MOVIE VERSION?. YOU JUST MADE A CINEMATIC THAT DOESN'T EVEN LAST A MINUTE. AND THATS IT!! so you should edit that short description of MOVIE VERSION because it isn't. and even the cinematic was all jumpy and fast. i also gave you a 3 because you are just a beginner. so you didn't do so bad.

No eyecandy, and you said it was helms deep. but it doesn't really look like it. HALF OF THE MAP IS ACTUALLY PAINTED OR USED DURING THE GAME. LOOKS LIKE YOU JUST PUT A BUNCH OF BUILDING, UNITS AND PAINTED A LITTLE AND CALLED IT HELMS DEEP
No hints, and no spotlight. and in my opinion, the objective wasn't well typed. it only says to "hold untill gandalf comes" something like that but not like what i just typed.
Additional Comments: you should edit this file and fix some stuff such as the objectives, hints, spotlight, cinematic, and also fix on playtest scenario so the person can play with player 1 and not player 2
HOWEVER, IT WASN'T SO BAD FOR A BEGINNER
