    Comment: A very short and random cinematic, with 2 characters fighting each other, although not really that intense.

    lol and then you say my description is cheap :p Gonna check it out nao :D
    Edit : What the hell :D I think this is about 35 seconds or so, the fight is kinda weird, they're almost not hitting each other, instead creating explosions around themselves, the terrain was nice but the cliffs around the map was weird and the cinematic just starts and the fight begins. w00t w00t.
    If you want this to be approved, then at least extend it and maybe the fights should make sense as well :p Also, please add an intro.

    Meh it was okay :D

    Pretty random cinematic you have there P:
    Mini Review:

    Things I liked

    • The spells <-- brilliant, best part of the whole thing
    • The terrain <-- alright :d
    • Map Preview Image <-- awesomely done


    Things I disliked

    • The Music <-- I liked it although in my opinion, it didn't really suit the map
    • The storyline <-- There wasn't much (Needs to be worked on/needs an intro to the cinematic)
    • Cinematic was a bit short <-- Could've had more fighting and went longer


    Things to add to improve map

    • A loading screen image <-- Black Screen isn't attractive
    • Voices for the Characters <-- Narrators or something, would spice things up


    Overall its alright, although there needs to be more of a storyline for my liking.


    Keep up the good work,
    Lag_Reviews!

    Kobas i must say this is weird cinematic :D Like others say; no story, music is not so good choise for this,spells are not bad but all together look bad.Only good thing exept spells is terrain. I will not rate map until you improve it, but for now 2/5

    OFFT: Thats a coincidence, I just finished learning 'What I've done' for piano, so when I watched it, I played it instead of the game =D

    ONT: a bit short, no real story behind it, can't really say anything the others hadn't already, I can't really give a full review cos it's not 'big' enough as it were, so I'll just give a rating

    2/5

    lmao...... The most random and probably the shortest cinematic in the warcraft 3 maps gets a 5/5 from someone :p If that's so, then i should make a replica of this :D
    Btw, are you going to update this or not? :>
