'Defuse the bomb' is a simple Fixed-Force scenario set on a small Jungle map. It's not particularly challenging or fun, and has a very short play time.

There are also quite a few bugs. Since the computer players are using 'standard' AI, they are likely to resign, or even change their alliance with you at any point in the scenario. The main objective of this mission is to bring your bomb disposal technician to the demolition droid to 'disarm' it. However, the trigger is set to active when your technician reaches the spot the droid was placed on in the editor, and not the droid itself. When the scenario begins, the droid will wander around on its own, and may end up nowhere near where your technician needs to be, leaving you lost.
==========

Balance: 3
This scenario isn't very difficult. Your AI ally on the map will take the brunt of the enemy army, leaving you to only deal with their base defenses. Your AT-ATs and Cannon will shred their turrets and shields apart in no time. The only real way to be defeated is to lose track of your technician and let him get killed in the crossfire, which is easily avoided by loading him into one of the mechs.

Creativity: 2
It's a unique objective, I guess, but the scenario ultimately boils down to a very short and easy battle.

Map Design: 3
The map is fairly average, resembling a typical tropical Forest random map, but with some oddly narrow and rectangular paths cut through the trees. The best looking bit of the map is a 'waterfall' next to a destroyed bridge, which is very easy to miss while playing.
==========

Story/Instructions: 3
There's a decent amount of story and information about the map, so you never really get lost. But there's nothing particularly noteworthy.
==========

Additional Comments:
Overall, a pretty middle of the road scenario, but its short length and lack of any sort of real challenge/enjoyment don't make it worth playing more than once.
