First of all, i thogh the movie was very nice, the flow, they camera scripts.
The scenery was very ncie also.
The "campaign" was kinda low grade, nothing special.
Lp dont be a hipocrit.
I've seen all your movies, and they aint good.
All it is, is 3 triggers or so setting people to attack, and then a "follow" camera script or 2 (im refering to Lp505's work).
Nothing special at all Lp505.

It’s kind of a novelty rating this, as it’s a mission in a movie :-)
All in all this was a pretty good D-Day movie/scenario, and a cool idea to incorporate a mission into a movie, or was it a movie into a mission?
Playability *plot*) 3. The movie was pretty cool to watch, though at times it looked strange when people didn’t die (being a cinematic and all). This one German sniper took like 10 tank shells in the gut and was still going… I thought the scenario mission was a really cool addition, but the problem was the ease of the mission, due to the inept enemy AI.
Creativity) 4. This were some pretty creative elements actually. The obvious one being the inclusion of a mission at the end of the movie. It wasn’t just like a scenario with a cinematic, because the cinematic was a movie in itself. So that was a creative idea. The artillery shell craters had black at the bottom, like a deep hole, a new idea and it was ok. The gunships pounding the beach was nice. The Commando Mission after the general beach assault was a good idea.
Map Design *visuals*) 4. Pretty good but the map caused a few problems in the movie, the obvious one was when the tanks went too close to the edge of the map (which seemed too small) and you could see a lot of the black ‘off-map’ which wasn’t the best. The ‘one path’ to the fortress kind of killed off most tactics, due to the map. The beach looked ok, and the land above it was nice. The movie visuals were pretty good I thought, apart from the off-map thing I just mentioned. Nice big wide pans of the beach. :-)
Instructions/Story *exposition*) 3. Hanging on with fingertips to a 3 here. The instructions told you what to do, extremely briefly. There was a short history relating to the commando mission. I knew what to do, but that was about it, bare bones really – and just hang on to average. Though the story wasn’t bad for the small playable mission, the commando’s etc, and the short history relating to them. It was mostly a movie, so instruction weren’t paramount I guess.
Overall) I thought that this was good for a first movie from NathraX. And a really good incorporation of a mission into it too. That’s defiantly as idea with a future ;-) Improvements needed in a few small things, so I hope you make another one : )
Hope this review helps too. Worth the download ;-)
