In this exciting scenario, you are pitted against the mighty British in a border war set in
Colonial New Jersey. Fight great battles and help New Sweden get rid of the
impending British threat. Scenario includes 4 objectives to make sure your gaming
expierience lasts as long as you want!
This is based on a true story so if you think "There was no place called New Sweden!" look it up. It was right on the Deleware River on the NJ side.
Anyway, this is my first AoE3 Scenario, so any comments would be obliged. Also, PLEASE RATE!!
It's playable but there are a few issues....see map design and balance for more...
Not really much balance. The initial soldiers that come across never interfere with anything. They just wander without attacking. I was able to easily go to age 5 without much problem. The choke point at the river made it super easy to defend and I simply travois'd a ton of barracks and built some cannons which stopped anything that came across.
The idea is creative enough, but a better map design with elevation changes and some eye candy would've helped.
Map Design: 3
The design was ok but nothing special. You could really use some elevation differences...eye candy...and treasures. Also there is no War Chief and no Indian trading posts or trade route.
The instructions were clear enough but you see every objective right from the start.
A few items here to mention. I won the scenario without ever attacking the fort...I didn't mean to win, but when I destoyed reds tc the game ended. Also I had to resign to exit the game even though I had a victory. This could be a great map to play with some adjustments. The AI should attack early and it would be more of a challenge. Also the AI didn't seem to upgrade any units.
