Playability: (5) many different ways to play it

Balance: (4.5) you almost get overwelmed at the beginning, but when you get Gandalf and the Rohirrim you overwelm your enemy

Creativity: (5) liked the triggers to destroy Isenguard and Barad-Dur

Map Design: (5) Gondor, Barad-Dur, Lothlorien, the Gate of Moria, Isenguard, Hobbiton, and the Fangorn Forest really made this map interesting

Story/Instructions: (4) there was really no instructions and the movie layed out the path of the story

The other review was either by the author or by someone with seriously warped ideas on whats good.

Playability:2

Many different ways to play it? rubbish, you had to defend a poor looking helms deep from a load of non melee wookiees, they easily break through the wall but you could still camp them with legolas. It ended rapidly aswell with no warning message at all.

Balance:2

Yes you do get overwhelmed, but the wookies never really look like killing your heroes. Gandalf's lot are fairly dangerous though but this needs better balancing before its any good as it was far too easy to complete with out trying hard.

Creativity:2

I must be missing something here, as I've not seen these triggers because every time I played this it finished early.
This may be due to bugs but bugs are bad and can be removed with testing.

Map Design:3

Not too shabby, Helms deep was poor, but there were other fairly good bits such as Minas Tirith and Hobbiton. Pity they were no use because the scenario ended quickly

Story/Instructions:1

Firstly there is nothing wrong with using a story already written, what is important is how you use it and here it was used badly with no instructions .
Yet the guy who also reviewed it rated it 4 .

Very odd

On the whole rushed, this could have been much better, but not much more worse.
