Playability: 1

This is quite frankly one of the most ugly, tedious and boring scenarios around. At olypian level, you'll likely spend 15-20 years on the first episode, bribing your rivals to give you the wood and bronze necessary to build Artemis' temple, so you can summon Atalanta and do the quest to finish the episode. Then you get to spend a bunch more time bribing your allies so they will help you take the bronze city with your amazons. And so on...

I only finished this one because I have a lot of patience.

In fact, the only non-boring thing that happened during the whole scenario was that Hera turned a mugger into a cow, which then mugged the sphinx, which instantly died. The muggercow then sat on the road mugging half the people who went by until I noticed it and sent a watchman after it. I'm pretty sure this wasn't part of the designer's plans however.

Map Design: 2

Small map. Building space is tight. Not inherently a bad thing, but the map looks like it probably took under a minute to draw.

Not built very carefully. There is bronze on the map that you can never mine and you are allowed to build trieme wharfs even though the coast won't support them. If I thought there was much likelihood of these being intentional, rather than just sloppy, I might be more impressed.

Story/Instructions: 2

Although the description alleges to follow Theseus and Atalanta deeds, I really didn't notice any story and couldn't see any connection with any classic greek legends. Certainly didn't learn anything new.


In Summary:
I suggest that you pass this one up. You won't miss anything much.
