    I was just about to go to sleep, but when I saw the map section had your campaign posted, I knew I needed to comment! This is probably going to be one of the biggest stars of the campaign section, and I am sure many people will be looking forward to playing this!

    Just out of curiosity, does this cover the story of both the prologue + chapter 1 (your two original campaigns), as well as the conclusion to the story?

    Anyway, thanks so much Jamir for spending so much time to make this masterpiece.

    And thank you so much for waiting tulee. Hope you enjoy the campaign. :)

    It includes Prologue and Chapter 1 only. It will end at the final mission in chapter 1. Some of the maps are not yet done, the later ones specifically. But I will add those in future updates very soon!

    Tactics Unleashed RE review ( Played on both 1.29.2 and 1.30.1 )

    - Gameplay:
    You place your characters at the beginning of a battle on a circle of your choosing. You take your turns and move, attack, use items, cast spells, etc. The enemy does the same. If you've played a tactical RPG before, none of this will seem strange or unfamiliar. If you've never played a tactical RPG before, imagine you're playing a table role-playing game, since that's the closest comparison I can give. The gameplay may not appeal to everyone, but there is enjoyment to be had.

    - Story:
    Overall, the story for me was just good. Often times, I couldn't get into it, unfortunately. It definitely began getting better by the end of the prologue. In chapter 1, with the inclusion of a few cutscenes involving the antagonists, I began getting more interested. The high point of the story is definitely the ending of chapter 1. That ending definitely got me excited for the sequel. This version doesn't yet have it, but I doubt it would be very different from the ending of the original chapter 1.

    - Difficulty :
    The battles in the prologue part of the campaign were relatively easy. Only the semi-final battle gave me some difficulty. The campaign heavily spikes in difficulty throughout the course of chapter 1, due to 5 new heroes joining you. A lot of people playing the campaign for the first time may feel overwhelmed because of this. I certainly was.

    - Customisation :
    The 9 weapon types and the birthstones offer a lot of different ways to build your characters. Though certain characters are preferable with specific weapons. I personally found Joshua way better as a spellcaster than a swordsman. Lira without a bow is just unthinkable.

    - Grinding:
    You won't have to do a lot of grinding in the prologue. In chapter 1, when you have 8 heroes in total ( luckily late in chapter 1), 7 of which you must buy new equipment for, you may have to spend some time grinding.

    - Side activities :
    The card mini-game is fun, although it is hard to get into.
    Fishing is a nice grinding method for gald. It's also a nice way to give your characters a small boost before a battle. More fishing rod upgrades can be added, however, since there are not that many.
    If you're feeling lucky, definitely try the slot machine mini-game. It's one of the only methods for grinding BP outside of main story battles.
    There are not that many optional quests. The ones present, however, give good rewards.

    TLDR
    Tactics Unleashed Remake is a campaign that tries to create something most people would be surprised to see in WC3; that being a tactical RPG. It accomplishes it really well. The gameplay is fun, although not for everyone. The story has it's highs and lows. The difficulty in the second half of the campaign can be overwhelming for people playing it for the first time. There are a lot of different ways to customise your characters, though some are more preferable than others. Grinding is not mandatory for more than half of the campaign. While still not that many, there are side activities. ( mini-games and optional quests )
    A lot of effort has been put into this campaign. For that reason alone, it deserves a 5/5

    Was actually trying to do something similar with a map/short campaign I was basing off of Darkest Dungeon.
    Good work on the map!

    Review
    by Shar Dundred


    Presentation
    I really like what you did with the terrain. The tile variation and the use of doodads is just lovely to look at. The only terrain I did not like was the terrain of the first battle, mostly just grass without anything else. I mean, it is only the tutorial battle and does not damage the overall feeling of the campaign as the terrain is otherwise very well done. There's also some very minor tile decisions for the first few battles that I did not like too much but nothing that struck me in a way that it made me feel bothered by it.
    The cinematics are nicely done and I liked the fact that you could read & skip the dialogues at your own speed.
    I especially liked your use of custom models, a great improvement over the original (I still remember Yuri using that Archmage model as a boy).


    5/5

    Story
    As someone who played the origninal, I already knew what was coming my way, of course. At the same time, it has been so long now that I do not remember the details that well anymore. But I still felt like everything was familiar, I am not sure if you changed the story, I did not check the old campaign, but I liked what I saw. It is a nice story with the good old Joshua's path. I felt a lot os nostalgy seeing this in the new version.
    I look forward seeing the conclusion of this entire story one day.


    5/5

    Gameplay
    The tactical battles are still as good as I remembered them. The AI isn't stupid, I am not sure if you improved them since the last time I played this or if they already were that good back then.
    What else is there besides the turn-based battles? Fishing, card games and gambling (pretty sure some people will not like that last part but I did not see it as an issue).

    5/5

    Bugs
    The only problems I had here was that at fishing apparently my guy threw the rod too far and it landed on top of the mountain in the back (I targeted the water ofc). At least I think it went there because the camera was stuck there. That was easily fixed by pulling the thing back out and did not happen again however.
    A problem I ran into here was that the card game did not explain itself to me. I wanted it to tell me how to play, it kept throwing me back to the menu so I couldn't really play cards at all since it obviously isn't just the value of the numbers (unless it should be, if so, then I ran into a different bug).
    Another issue I ran into is that if you try to select a unit with dragging, most of the time you select one of the circle of powers instead.


    Overall
    It is great to see the comeback of this campaign from the past and I think it is approveable.
    I would still like you to fix the card game issue since it disables the player from understanding it but since it is not a core mechanic of the campaign that "breaks" it and because I am sure you will fix it, I will approve this campaign in its current state.
    Yes, it is "unfinished" but it still is in a playable state that is indeed well done and therefore I have no issues approving it. Nice job!


    5/5
    Set to Approved!

    @Shar Dundred Wow, thank you so much for the approval! This came as a nice surprise for me (was actually waiting for it to be finished). And also for the 5 star review. This just gave me a huge boost of motivation to complete the campaign now.

    Anyway, just wanted to put a little comment to your review, Shar. Just to clarify some things, hope you don't mind.

    The first battle looks simplistic, yes, and I wanted it to be that way. Since it makes the tutorial much easier to understand with just minimal decorations in place. I promise the terrain gets a lot more complicated in the later battles, when the player already has a good grasp of the game.

    The AI is improved, yes. The AI now acts like how the player would and now follows the same ruleset as the player, unlike on the original campaigns where they have their own set of movement and attacking rules, etc.

    The card battle, the rules are never there actually. I just placed the dialog box as a placeholder till I can figure out how to put it. The rules are a bit complicated. But I assure you, no bugs in there. :)

    The fishing rod, that's a bug and that appears from time to time. But like you said, it can be cancelled. I'm still trying to figure out what causes this.

    Once again Shar, thanks for taking your time to write such a glowing review. :)

    Yes, it is turn based.
