GLOBAL WARS:




This scenario is based on the Arab Desert Series by me, KevTheGreat. Many people had wanted an Arab Desert 8, but i decided to try something new, and made this, includes many, many features new, old, and perfected.



The Storyline of ths game doesn't make much sense, but i still decided to put it in. Five Empires have risen to face the test of time, they compete in a world tournament. Who will win, who will conquer? You control your diplomacy, so be prepare to experiance cold wars, World Wars, and others...



Features:



*day-night-day cycle


*rain events


*miniquests for each player


*flags of diplomacy


*tutorial on the flags


*over 550 triggers


*over 1200 effects


*many more



This scenario is in the CSO contest, so please grade well :)



P1-5 are human players, p6 is a comp (ivan the terrible), Discovery Age, FFA, Read Hc names for civ order

Playability: 5
(Insert Playability analysis here)
The game is very simple. It even gives you instructions and objectives. You just kill eachother.
Balance: 5
(Insert Balance analysis here)
I think it was pretty balanced. Some of the civs werent very strong at first but he fixed them and ive won it with nearly every civ.
Creativity: 5
(Insert Creativity analysis here)
It was pretty creative. It had suicide bombers, sacrifices, and even its own alliance/war system.
Map Design: 5
(Insert Map Design analysis here)
The map was pretty acurate for each civilazation. Each area was suited to the customs and enviroment of the civs. So each had its own theme.
Story/Instructions: 5
(Insert Story/Instructions analysis here)
The storyline had missions and objectives for each civilazation so it wasnt everyone doing the same thing. Like the Aztecs had to sacrifice to their gods. The Spanish had to gather gold for their queen. The Japanese had to protect their lands. The Ottomans had to appease Allah. And the French had to conquer them all.

Additional Comments:
I think the map was very well done and a lot of time was spent on it. It had cinematics, good objectives, a diplomacy system, and it fitted well together. I think it deserves credit for the work put into it.

Very simple, you kill each other. The instructions in the beginning can help you, too.

Balance: 5
All the civilizations are balanced equally, you can win with each and every civ available. I have yet to see where the same civ has won twice in a row. Everyone can access each resource, noone is cut out on anything, and each civ has their strong resource.

Creativity: 5
This is what makes this scenario so awesome. Kev added miniquests, characters and their lines, and the war and truce flags.

Map Design: 5
Flawless map design. He balanced it so that there were trees by each person, and that they could access each resource. Also, the gameplay gets an added spark because he made it switch from day to dusk to night to dawn back to day, which really makes you feel into it.

Story/Instructions: 5
The storyline is pretty cool, each civ has come into this land ready to conquer it, and the aztecs(who have already been there) have yet to see if white men will be good or bad for them. For the instructions, it lets you see how to work the flags, and thats all you need to know.

Additional Comments:
Great game, I look forward to more in the future ;)
