Here is my review:
The beginning of the game is very interesting. We're starting with a plenty of Knight towns, but we're quickly loosing them, as forces of Chaos overflow our land. However, we're given a bunch of crusaders and a very strong hero, so after a few weeks I've recaptured all of the cities. Enemy tried to do his best, but he couldn't match with my army of golden warriors
After 2 months it was all over but the shouting.
From visual side, I am a bit disappointed. Even if the minimap is very creative, the map itself is rather empty. Dozens of mines, often without guards, the guards very week in comparision with our forces - it was very easy to build everything in all of our 10 castles just in a month. Enemies have only 4 castles and 6 villages in total - after a first strike, it was just a matter of time, when their power will fall.
There is also a big, unnecessary place on the map, where enemies cannot get in. It doesn't differ from the rest of the map, it just allow to gain some resources and maybe capture empty villages. I was too lazy to explore it.
It's also a big pity, that there is no bigger story behind this map.
So, my overall feeling is that this could be a good map, but in it's current state it's too easy and looks incomplete. I will give it rate 5,5/10
Well, Roland, it seems I've won our little contest. But don't worry. Not only have I decided to spare your life, but I am appointing you monarch of the Western Tower. Perhaps I will come and visit your splendid court, when you are not entertaining important rats and spiders.
