I enjoyed the opening sequence where you traveled in transports looking for land while the wonder time was counting down but even on hardest, I was able to defeat the wonder without much difficulty. After the initial fight, there was a huge lull while building since all the computers are set to defensive. The fight for yellow's territory was pretty good - there was nice use of elevation employed there and I found out the hard way not to discover the centurion too early. :^) Other than that, I felt the scenario was not very challenging mainly because the computer never attacks you and never builds anything so you just keep building and striking until you eventually win. It got tedious and boring in the end but the start was pretty nice. The map was well-designed with good use of cliffs, elevation and shallows. The abundance of shallows made fighting quite a different experience - unfortunately an experience I didn't enjoy much but it was different. An average scenario overall.
