Number of Scenarios: 3

The rise of Alexander - the first years is a three mission campaign which is based on historical facts. It explains three major events in young alexanders life.

Playable, you could play it.  But you might not derive any enjoyment.
Balance: 1.5
Barely any resistance encountered.
Creativity: 1.5
Pretty basic paths through tiny forest maps.
Map Design: 1.5
Tiny maps, paths through forests.
Story/Instructions: 1.5
Not finding any well developed history of Alexander the Great, just minimal goals.
Additional Comments:
Scen 1: No history. Find a horse.  Actually found a stable, not a horse.  Won.
Scen 2: No history.  Save your father.  Two ways to play:  Go save father, he gets killed before you arrive, but you don't lose.  Or: have father escape bad guys, meet you in corner of map.  He's saved but you don't win.
Scen 3: Fixed force.  Don't bother with any strategy, just mass attack.  Then wipe out towers with catapults with range 15 !

Overall:  Not recommended for download.

Wow this is over in minutes, no fun and no challenge.

Balance: 2
The second scenario is the only marginally balanced part of the campaign. The rest are over in minutes.

Creativity: 2
The idea of the race and saving Alexander's father are creative but poorly implemented.

Map Design: 1
Very poor - all are plain maps with added forest tile. No effort.

Story/Instructions: 2
Basic details.

Additional Comments:
Try to avoid - 3 scenarios with absolutely no effort.
