    Ardenian: A dark atmopshered cinematic with sometimes confusing on-goings.
    The environment is well-designed with one or another flaw
    ( e.g. statue floating in the air, you could remove its bottom part via model edit, so it looks as supposed, standing on the wall)
    The voice acting is nice and the story shows there is a lot of potential lore behind the cinematic.

    Please change the map name, it is too long to show up in Warcraft 3.
    After you changed it, the map can be approved.

    One of the best cinematic I've seen I must say...
    I love that moment around 1:35 when you see that beast lurking in the dark. Also the king / talking skull. Superb.
    The only negative thing I can say is that the tiles in the courtyard in the opening was a little bleak.

    Anyway...
    +rep for this one!

    Insanely great cinematic, totally reminds me of games like Dark Souls especially from the atmospheric point of view.

    As much as I'd want it to have a metaphysical meaning, it's just left for unthoughtful interpretation. The atmosphere and visual ambiance are the main show.

    It is won the third place of a contest, I will watch the previous two...
    This cinematic is awesome... I can not find words for this.

    Story is little and there are no plot holes or plot errors.
    Plot as I remember:
    The young prince returns to check and repair the errors of his father, the Fourth someone maybe Alexander. He finds his home ruined, there are an undead here, maybe narrator, who is ignored by the prince. The Prince enters the castle and find only death in it. He met with his older-brother transformed to a powerful and large being. They discuss the fate of their families. Our prince moves forward to the throne room and atop the bones, he saw his father... a skeletal king. The King tell him, that he and his sister can flee from here and begin a new life from far away the rotten kingdom.

    Story: 4/5 or 5/5 (hesistating) It is simple, but understandable and clean.
    Environment: 5/5
    Music 4/5, it is silent a bit...
    Cinematic/Transmission style also very unique and sounds deserves a bonus point!

    Overall:
    5/5

    Beautiful! This cinematic gave me huge Berserk vibes, i would have loved to see more "battle" scenes and dodging monster guards in clever ways, but i know creating only a few minutes of this takes a huge amount of time and effort.
    Thanks for creating this and i hope you will make more in the future!
