As far as playability goes...it was rather nice to play. It was a surpirisingly different style of game and fun to play. The downside to this, was that the map was too small, and it was nothing but a 'cross the map, kill all you see' thing. You should have made it bigger, and more enemies, so that I would have had to actually deploy all of my armies. It's more fun that way. Don't take that wrong though, it was a good game.
I also liked that the Guardian appeared (Though it isn't a myth unit to my knowledge) It made me draw all of my units back as fast as I could, because I knew I couldn't kill it. I saw that pharoah there, and thought at first it was mine, figured it was modified to kill the guardian, realized it wasn't, and thought that it was rude that the enemy had a hero that could heal. So I tasked about five toxotes on him and went back to micro the withdrawal. Seconds later the ending cine kicked in, and I was like...what?
The thing that got you here was that there were too few enemy units. The Mummies messed up my hoplites, but I didn't even have to go all micro on them to get rid of them. There were alot of heroes, that was good, it mixed things up a bit, and you didn't make them to powerful. That was a plus. Despite this, I find myself giving you a '2' here mostly because it wasn't hard enough to make me draw my units back and think on it. It was over too soon. All I had to do was throw some men at the problem. Sure it's not elegant, but it was all that was neccesary.
This was neat. When I first saw the thing the first thought I had was 'Shrek for AoM!'I enjoyed the concept and it was neat enough that I will likely play it again someday. What kept it from a five was the lack of a well designed world. There wasn't anything to make it 'pop'. Add a small fordable creek, a few mountains to pass, make the map a bit bigger, add a few birds, here and there, mix it up.
Map Design: 2
As I said, this part lacked. You didn't really have a nice city to defend, and no sign that it was just a forward base of operations. You should have added a few things to liven up the map. What was with the funny walls? There seemed to be no point to them.
You did good here too. There were objectives (something I don't see very often) the intro cinematic helped to explain what was going on. I had no trouble finding out what to do. The obectives were well enough written that I had no trouble understanding them. I can;t actually say they were well written, because I didn't notice. But if they had been poorly written I would have noticed.
I liked the ending music, it was very fitting. I'm a personal fan of Metallica, but isn't there a copyright thing there?
