Author File Description
HyA_DEATH_DBS
File Details
Clone Campaigns required?: No
Style: Build and Destroy
You take on the role of Darth Maul after the defeat of the Trade Federation by the Gungans. Lord Sidious instructs Maul to retake Theed and exact revenge on the pitiful Gungans!



Also, look for a special cameo appearance by corranhorn! (you have to use forceexplore and forcesight to see him at the very beginning of the game, he's in the far right corner of the map. and to corranhorn- you know why you're in this scenario.)

Playability: 3
This is a very simple Build & Destroy scenario. You attack a small Naboo village, capture its workers, and build an army to destroy two Gungan camps. It sounds pretty neat, but there are a lot of things that could have been done better.

Both your base and the enemy bases are extremely close to eachother, separated only by two gates. There is no real exploration, reconnaissance, or tactics involved; just tear down their gates and flood units in until you complete your objective.

On top of this, the playable area is extremely small. Both your base and the enemy bases are trapped within a narrow maze of trees. Building more than a handful of buildings can become very difficult.
==========

Balance: 3
Due to the constricted conditions of the map, the enemy has no real way to expand, short of you allowing them to survive long enough to dig out enough trees to make building room. They only produce a handful of basic troops, none of which are a match for Darth Maul. Chances are that both enemies will resign before you can even build a decent-sized force to attack with.

Creativity: 2
It's about as basic as a Build & Destroy scenario can get, only a lot more restricting than normal.
==========

Map Design: 2
The dialog describes the area you're attacking as Theed, but instead of a sprawling cliffside city from the films, you are shown a random sprawl of Naboo buildings that could hardly be defined as a small village. The surrounding Gungan camps aren't much better, nor is the flat line of trees choking up all of the available build space on the map.
==========

Story/Instructions: 2
Not a while lot behind this one. Darth Maul survives his encounter with the Jedi at the end of The Phantom Menace (by way of a pretty silly event) and decides to exact some revenge in the form of killing Gungans. That's about all there is to it. The only dialog is in the form of a short briefing at the beginning of the scenario.
==========

Additional Comments:
Not particularly engaging, but I guess if you're looking for a very short, very easy B&D type of scenario, you could do worse than this.
