My review

Playability: 5
The scenarios, were great to play and were kind of revolutionary to me, due to things like the weapon centre. The cinematics were fun to watch and you will be in this story from the point you see Alberich for the first time till you finally see the credits. And it makes you very satisfied when you finally completed that last objective.

Balance: 4
The balance was very good, although fighting the same army over and over again begins to get boring after a while. You accectly knew were to place specific units. And you could protect your towns by simple spam some towers and hillforts, on the other side, the RPG's were perfect and with using the powers right, you could make it to the end.

Creativity: 5
This campaigne was, as I already said, really revolutionairy. You made a whole new race in the game that's called AoM and I've seen lots of things wich I never saw before like the door system and the weapon centre. Also the hints and tips that were availible in the game were like no other.

Map Design: 5
Really good, the maps were filled with amazing buildings and mystic woods, really impressive, my favorites are the Volsungen-fortress and the Walsungen one, not to forget Siegfrieds house and the Gibichungen forts, wich were very sinister. They described the different races very well and made you fell like the were actually real, and not just some weird aliens.

Story/Instructions: 5
This is by far the best campaign I have ever played in the entire history of AoM TT. It has a great story and you really want to now what the characters are doing. In most campaigns you just play them and don't have a "relation" with the characters. You achiefd this and made you really care about Alberich, although he is a real brute.
The instruction were also very clear, you always knew what to do.

Additional Comments:
Can't wait for the other 3 acts(if you ever make them), this campaign has really given me new ideas for making my own campaigne. Keep up the good work and I can't wait for the Corruptor ;)
this should also be a spotlight imo

How i said last post, the best campaign i've ever played! i had really great fun playng as the nibelungen. the levels were complex, like the wizard's tower.so it's a 5.

Balance: 5
Very challenging, yet completable after loosing some times XD

Creativity: 5
Really creative. i had never heard of the legend/operah before i played your campaign, now i know, at least act 1.

Map Design: 5
AWSOME! Beautiful design and nice use of triggers. Also the cinematics were breath taking.

Story/Instructions: 5
The instructions were simple, yet explainned the objectives. The story was well explainned too.

Additional Comments:
Keep with the good job creating excellent campaigns!
Orange_Gecko Playability: 5
I'd say the only problem is how I can't click at a space in the WIZARD level if it's between the Trojan Walls!

Balance: 5
Balanced game? Probably not, but it's fun nevertheless. Of course, it really can't be balanced because of all the eyecandy and stuff like that you've used. But it's not impossible to beat.

Creativity: 5
There's nothing like it.

Map Design: 5
Nice job...with plenty of eyecandy.

Story/Instructions: 4
Quite the unique story.

Additional Comments:
Unbelievable...Oh, I really have only one problem. In the Wizard level, I have tried and tried to click on a space in between the halls with the Trojan Wall. I need to learn how to rotate the map.
Oh, when I did the modify the Unit trigger in the Editor, it didn't work when I play tested it. And I'm as sure as hell I filled out every field correctly. But I downloaded the Editor Patch 1.0, so that may have something to do with it...

The above review has been removed because it does not comply with our Review Guidelines. (I'm not saying it doesn't deserve a 4.8, the review just isn't correctly made)
Senior_man_face So, does downloading this map cause any problems when playing on ESO? Does it contain any mods?

Senior_man_face Ok... I just wanted to check that.

I have just started playing this and so far... WOW! The Prologue was so amazingly well done! (althought VERY laggy!)
The first scenario has such great map design, (I'm only up to the first one, so I haven't seen the others yet), and OBVIOUSLY you put ALOT of hard work into making this.
Your cinematics are so... PERFECT! Everything just seems so right.
This is definetly a MUST download for everyone!

... Just wondering, how far into The Corrupter are you?

Laggy ?? hmm I think thats your comp then....My playtester Felix has tested this even on an old weak pentium 3 system and it ran smooth as a babies ass.... maybe you can fix it by shutting some programs which run in the background while you are playing AoM TT....

A well the most important is that you enjoy it

if you ever need some hints or tips....then you can check here:

There are already a lot of questions answerd and tips given ( be aware spoiler alert)....

...as for The Corruptor.... well Monty is still working hard on the msic and sounds....that will take a while....well as for the movie itself: all 5 scenarios are finished, campaign file is finished and custom overlays are finished......if Monty is ready....i will do my last round of polishing/ updating and finetuning.....but that will probably be in 2007...because I will be very busy in my private life in these last months of 2006......

Best regards,
The Vandhaal
