Playability: 2. Start as Greek in Post Iron Age and I can't build a horse archer, my favorite unit, I can't even build a chariot archer as a poor substitute, I can build a bowman. There are resources all over the map and I scrambled against the other players to get them. P3 disappeared, must have been wiped out by P2. Or maybe I helped a little. After P3 was gone, I sent hordes of villies all over the map getting gold and stone. Finally ended up cornering P2 in his little corner. Some fun sending masses of villies to swarm an enemy gold or stone mine.
Balance: 1.5. P2 sent a few attacks against my home base wall of towers but after a while he fell back to his corner. He sent villies to the gold and stone mines but my towers wiped them out. Later I trushed into his last remaining gold mine and he poured all his expensive units into my towers.
Creativity: 1.5. Kind of random map with less work done. Some resources added all over the map.
Map: 1.5. Like a random map except perfectly flat like a billiard table.
History etc. : 1.5. Minimal, like this review. Never did see ten towns on the map.
