    Review

    Map Name: The Last Samurai-The Siege of Tiachi

    Creator: xDeathKnightx

    Information: The Siege of Tiachi is the third part of The Last Samurai Cinematic Series.

    -------------------
    Camera:

    The Camera work needs some major changes, sometimes it wasn't really showing you the important things and when there was a conversation, it never moved. Making the camera move very very slowly would make it look better.

    Animations:

    There were no talk animations, adding some would bring more life into the scenes.

    Combat:

    The Combat scenes were not good at all. There were 1000's of units attacking each other and when the general and the Warlord leader wanted to fight, then the general died with just one spell. Because the viewer would've expected something "longer". Also put some special effects in the battles.

    Environment:

    The Environment was very nice, although there were some unnecessary things, for example the fountain and the night elf obelisks in the courtyard. But overall, it was nice.

    Dialog:

    The thing that bothers everyone are the dialogs, they are badly written and contain too many typos and sometimes some words are missing. I would recommend you rewrite all the dialogs.

    Story:

    The story is....fine i guess, but it wasn't really story focused in this one, 90% of it was combat. Focus a bit more on the storyline in the future parts.

    Intro:

    The intro was the most intriguing thing, it suddenly just started with units swinging their blades in the air. Add a fade out and then write the map's name with creator etc., then slowly fade in.

    Overall:

    This one did actually have more negative points than positive points, and my rating is 1.5, but i will make it 2/5. But i will not vote for approval nor rejection until you update it.

    Some Other Things:

    The Bullet movement is still buggy, it suddenly moved a little to the right
    In the courtyard, when the battle began, there were too many units, which caused the units to move in a weird way. Some of them moved to the enemy, some of them were still standing there. You had overloaded the war3 engine

    Sorry about that, the reason it doesn't show credits and the map name and author name at the start, is because i initialized it at the wrong part x_x i will update once i have fixed some of the things you mentioned, Thanks for the review also.

    Allow me to say that your map is perfect, perhaps it's not that 24/7 good at both terrain and cinematic but the Story and triggers show at least how hard you worked..4/5

    You do realize that 24/7 means 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, right?

    Map Name: The Last Samurai-The Siege of Tiachi - Review #2

    Creator: xDeathKnightx

    Information: The Siege of Tiachi is the third part of The Last Samurai Cinematic Series.

    -------------------
    Camera:

    I don't exactly remember the first version of this cinematic, but at least right now, I think the camera work is fine, it's constantly moving around, but perhaps in the battle scene, you should reduce the camera pan time, sometimes it just takes way too long for it to reach a specific character, who is currently talking.

    Animations:

    The animations are neat, you've added more sfx to the battle and also more unit animations, like the swordsmen dodging attacks.

    Combat:

    Well I previously stated that the one-shot scene where the general gets shot and is already on the ground was a it short, but I guess you wanted that scene to show that he was enraged and not thinking about his actions.
    As for the battle scene, there are new special effects which make it more intense and the various unit animations help the hype, like the mages casting spells, ...

    Environment:

    The terrain work and the environment is overall, excellent. The environment really resembles that age. However, the only things that didn't really fit, were the warcraft 3 stones lying around, I was expecting them to be also custom models like every other model in the cinematic. And at some places there was fire, like on the stones, which doesn't really make a lot of sense.

    Dialog:

    The dialog is OK, nothing so special, and there are kinda too many repetitions.
    A lot of the typos were removed, but there are some still a few left, but nothing huge.

    Story:

    The story is a bit interesting, there is a fair amount of emotion in the map, not too much, but sufficient. The first part of the cinematic is just a battle scene and then the final part is more talking, but at least that helps the story a little with the assault plan.

    Overall:

    The map has improved, the dialog is a little better, but still not satisfying. I've changed my rating from 2.0 (1.5) to 4.0. I'm kinda in a good mood, so be happy I guess :p

    Other:

    Odin's model is not visible in the battle scene
