the only negative which effected the game play was:
1) the recruitment force you purchase
is to large, it feels like you're runing around with half of London :/ ( -0,1 )
2) I never found the guy to give me a password,
so i explored the map and found a path to the last town and killed all enemies there.
As i was about to give up,
I found a => fence near the Priminister which i destroyed with several henchmen and then killed the Primeminister and upon returning
to the hideout, i won the scenario. ( -0.2 )
I belive this is an unwanted shortcut,
you might want too check it and update both the fence & instructions according to difficult setting(?)
-0.2 fore the large recruit force size,
which made it quite easy to rush the enemy.
tough the enemy and the scenario was balanced,
and the enemy cars made it realistic
and helped to protect the enemy.
- change the family recruit to like 2, max 3.
- increase the recruit cost
- reduce income.
where do i begin ?
*extremly realistic Airport full of
airplains arriving / leaving,
the cinematic there was great!
* "the business" stuff
* the target quests/ hit list
* recruiting from the homeland (!)
* people walking, cars driving,
comercial airplains flying ,
all of it was awesome!
however i feel you could've added
more quests: stuff like a kidnap,
someone robbing/mugging the player,
henchmen betraying you,
maybe a ransom exchange?
( i realize this probably is because
of the shortcut =( )
Map Design: 4.9
wonderfull eye candy ! =)
London + the suburb was very well made,
the marvelous airport was very innovative,
the Castle looked very good and the player's hideout looked a bit like Batman's lair ;D
however the last town's houses wasn't that
well layed out and the victory cinematic's trees isn't realistic / doesn't suit.
allsow it looks pretty unbeliveable with an army of hench men walking around London..
not effected by score,
but i think one area could've been filled out,
and prolonged the scenario with a quest or two.
i think you know what area i mean :)
In London, two dialogues fired a bite late,
and several where a bit cheesy there,
tough this changed as the scenario progressed.
as usual, the cinematics where very nice,
except the above mentioned.
The history section was really good,
telling about what happend between the scenario.
the instructions where easy to understand,
however you get a slight minus here because
i had no idea what you ment with the password quest/objective instruction & it's hint.
I found myself runing around with the heros and henchmen for 2 hours,
before i accidently found the shortcut
and as mentioned killed the Primeminister
and upon returning to the safehouse, won.
Im willing to upgrade the score to 4.9/5.0,
depending if it's updated & the shortcut fixed.
This is in my opinion the best scenario in the Family "tetralogy" and probably
- the best scenario i've played in EEH.
