Reviews of The Battle for Urbarahz v1.1
Despite the effort that's been put on this plugin, I must confess I found the gameplay frustrating, to say the least. Regular dwarfs, a key unit in this campaign are the most troublesome issue that will occupy your attention, more than your enemies. These maps would have been rather an enjoyable experience if only dwarfs were not made as nearly uncontrollable. After a long row of tries, I have eventually grown sick of ctrl clicking everywhere using half speed, saving games every 10 kills. Perhaps this plugin is best designed for massive coop play, each player controlling just one unit, and doomed to lose it in the silliest way.
I have been waiting for this plugin for so long, and waiting eagerly for its release since the time of Myth 1.5. Colormaps, script and overall atmosphere live up the hype. But somebody please, fix those bloody dwarfs! AI and attack specs need seriously an improvement. Weren't for the visuals, this plugin would deserve one star only.
I'd say that's a great plugin :)
I've hesitated whether to give 4 or 5 stars. Wanted to give 4, because sometimes those repeating endless waves of enemies were becoming boring and in few situations I was annoyed by my units' AI, because they were dying so easily (but maybe I just suck at Myth ;P).
But I gave 5 stars because of great colormaps, artwork, scripting, units, spells, storyline etc. etc. Everything is soo polished and cute. I like such plugs. A must have for all coop-ers! 5 stars.
Sort of like how guildenstern was saying, this game will be unplayable if you are new to the game or never adapted to keeping your units alive, alert and managed well and quickly. If you are able to function as a myther, or play happen to play coop, you will find this plugin really enjoyable and has a lot of good work put into it. Most of the textures are beautiful, even on my 'soon to be' old xp it still looks good.
Bravo Project Magma
Just downloaded it and I must say it looks really nice, but some of the map edges appear rather odd and very high - maybe that could use an update? I'd also like some narration for the pre-game! Gameplay rocks though, and that's also very important! Also good thing is has so much new levels, I hope to finish some of them this summer vacation. I'm sure that's going to be one hell of a challenge!
Good works guys!

Played and Beaten ever level on this plugin. I suggest experienced users in Coop play this or have at least 5 players in your game.
The battles are tough and challenging but not overpowering however as stated you need to pay a lot of attention but the outcome is much more rewarding.
Excellent scenery and the topography in this map is really setting a higher standard of plugin.
Without my special "local" folder of cheats and tweaks, this would be a ridiculous waste of time: Excessive waves, and all that. Not interested in reinventing the art of warfare, mate, just in playing a game. However, this is a really fantastic piece of work. Not without its flaws, but it looks great, is imaginative, and was a riotous good time...as I say, with my special tweaks in play. Nice work.
