The Patriot - A challenging scenario by Ninja King
This is a challenging scenario with 3 difficulty levels and with dialogs.
You are Benjamin Martin and your mission is to destroy the British Command Centre and Townhouse.
Benjamin Martin must survive. If he is caught he will be executed and you lose.
Follow the objectives closely to ensure victory.
This scenario runs with AoE III asian dynasty.
Very well done, plays with no problems. Would have liked to see maybe some sort of base defense aspect but the lack of such a feature does not take away from the overall playability.
Exceptionally well balanced, made for a fair bit of thought into attack plans. I prefer games that I cannot beat on the first try and require some thought.
Many nice features (kill x for x, go here for x, etc) however it did feel a slight bit repetitive once a strategy was found that worked, a little difference in the goal of different objectives would fix that right up but hardly a fix if it could be called one.
Map Design: 4
Building and unit layout was well done and well planned but I would have liked to have seen a map not designed from a random map script. But the other features do almost make up for it.
Very clear and effective, although such a buildup I would have liked to have seen something more for victory (cinematic scene, end credits, even a nice you're awesome cause you won note).
Overall a fantastic scenario, definitely worth the play, would have liked a few more features to change up the game play for a second play through but as it stands currently, its nothing to really complain about. Very well done sound effects (voices, etc), not a feature that you see often or done so well, so I added 1 point to map design as compensation. Looking forward to more scenarios!

As one of the reviewers said ... everything worked & it did. Here we go again with a scenario where the idiot hero charges in and gets himself nearly killed. I left him at the camp until I needed to raise the flags. The heroes are the worst ones to pick for "they must survive." No real army "doesn't prepare and build up". And no money is not an obstacle in real life for military operations--only in AOE. A balanced scenario would be an equality in troops, equipment, etc., and the numbers of each. Very well done scenario, show us some more.
