The Artifact

Playability: 4. I enjoyed this scenario. It seems difficult at first because ten centurions can easily wipe out ten foot archers. But that's only in a head to head clash. You can use small unit tactics to avoid a direct clash and control the movement of the enemy by sniping and retreating. I used Perseus single handed to do almost all the work and capture the artifact.

Balance: 3. Seemingly overmatched, you can overcome the odds by adroit small unit management.

Creativity: 3. Nicely set up scenario, requiring tactics rather than simple build, overwhelm and destroy.

Map: 2.5. A small map giving you just barely enough room to maneuver for fire and movement tactics.

Story: 2. Minimal, all that you need to win the scenario but no background. Victory statement: you have won. Loss statement: you have lost. Luv it !!

Comments: Recommended for download. Excellent practice in small unit tactics versus a superior adversary.
