This DMOD has a fairly big map which is nicely decorated. The gameplay is very basic. There are scripts attached to screens which repeat themselves. The intro and tutorial/training area are strange as they have signs telling you how to do things such as move and talk, but you have already done these things just to get to the training area.

Without any driving quest (other than defeat Diablo) it's hard to be interested in finishing this DMOD. But the map decoration work is good. You can always up your stats so you don't die touching slimers and pillbugs and then just wander around.

Music from Age of Empires II sometimes worked, sometimes didn't.

The end boss (which you can't fight) is a new graphic (I'm assuming pinched from Diablo, but I could be wrong). You meet this creature and that's it.

Not enough save machines.

Over all 6.5 out of 10.
