Well this was original.You play as Anakin in the Geonosian Arena,and together with other jedi's you will have to fight waves of droids.Nice idea,but I was already bored after the first wave,and it wasn't really fun.I had to fight the 2nd wave on my own because of the other jedi's didn't attack the 2nd wave.
Well balanced.You have to fight wave after wave,so it doesn't really get too difficult,IF the other jedi's would have helped you.
Very creative.You have to fight in an arena and fight waves of droids...well,no need to explain anymore.
The Arena looked too simple.There was nothing special about it.It was just a flat area with spectators around it.
Thought the story was taken from the movie itself,the author explained it well,same with the instructions.
Master Echuu's Punk Reviews
Overall, this scenario isn't what I thought it would be, coming from the leader of the design group. But the author has my grace since it was his first piece of work.
PLAYABILITY - 3
The basic playability included running around and killing every droid in sight. You fought alongside your allies to increase the action a bit. Other than that, no variety was brought into the scenario, making it rather dull after awhile.
BALANCE - 2
As stated by the author, the scenario could not be beaten, and this scenario is a survival level. The healthpacks helped keep you alive longer to achieve a greater score, but there should have been way to win and achieve some all time score.
CREATIVITY - 2
Though the idea of a survival action scenario is a great idea, the creativity brought into the scenario was little to none.
MAP DESIGN - 2
Only a small segment of the entire map was used for the scenario, and the map design for the played area wasn't too eye-catching. Only a few rocks existed inside the arena, and even though it is supposed to be very bare, mixing the different desert terrains would have spiced things up a bit. The outer walls were just filled with cantina tables and workers with nothing more to catch your eye.
STORY/INSTRUCTIONS - 3
The basic instructions for the scenario were given, as well as the hints and tips for further surviving, but nothing was too detailed. A bitmap image would have also really helped too.
A good first attempt, but this needs a lot of work. I encourage the author to keep trying his best in his further scenarios.
Note: This wouldn't be classified as a campaign, but more of a single player scenario, due to the survival gameplay and lack of deep storyline.
