Yea! So I'm not dead right?! Well, after two weeks of midterms and strept throat, I'm back. And back with vengence, brimming with the excitement of being able to rip an aweful map to shreds MWAHAHAHAHA! Ok, after the author probably just had a heart attack, I will tell the truth, I like this map. Now to classify, this is an OPEN WORLD ADVENTURE MAP, and an OPEN WORLD ADVENTURE MAP is a little different than a NOT OPEN WORLD ADVENTURE MAP. Last time I had my review on Astetics, Traversibility and Story, this time I'm gonna rate on Astetics, Traversibility, Story, and Usage of Sandbox. So without further ado, lets begin:
Okay, the astetics are.........average. The "town" is actually an NPC village with treasure and enchanting tables and such. So by that margin, anyone could have done this. However, I'm giving this map the benifit of the doubt since on the forum page I saw an EPIC castle and a cool mage's guild.

One word summary of this catagory.......SUCKS! Objectives are thrown around wildly without a clue to how they are to be done. When I say that I am emphasizing but it is pretty poor.

Also, the castle I meantioned above, never found it. Even if I was using an outdated version, I did not find two of the quests in the folder. So overall, some of the quests and directions were good, while others were not. This gets a

This is a N/A since TOE is actually a random cluster of jobs that your character must do. Sooooooooooooo yea........ No story.
This game is a very good sandbox. It has the structures and the quests, but it allows you to go off on your own without it being big and in your face. It is very calm with alot of secrets as well. The quests from this qame are also fun. My personal favorite is the feud between to very agressive bakeries. The fort also gave me a place to train, even though it is very small. And though it may seem like i'm not saying much, its because nothing needs to be said. It's good.

This is a good map. It took me about an hour to play through but hey, it was a fun hour. So I do give my recommendation. It is a good
Note about myself: To tell you, I will now do mods! (Yay!) So if any of you have any mods or map to be reviewed, put them right here! Also, I was wondering of doing weighted averages for final scores instead of normal averages. Comment if you agree.
Just wanted to note,
from now on I WILL be doing weighted averages and will do a thread on that to ask for you feedback.
BTW- Still need mods/maps :sleep.gif: Really, i wont kill it too bad....... heeheehee
