Japan's Asia; 1870-1940

Needs T&P?: Yes
This scenario is loosely based around the history of Japan's development from a backwards feudal political system to a modern empire in the years between 1870 and 1940. In order to survive and prosper, the Japanese empire must challenge and defeat the vastness of China, the power of Russia and the superior technology of western Colonial Powers, such as France, Britain and the Netherlands. These conflicts are necessary for the Japanese military to establish the sphere of influence necessary to challenge the USA and other western imperialists in one of the most epic confrontations the world has ever seen!

It's your basic quick game type, but with a really cool map and a really creative idea.

As Japan, you are at a huge disadvantage with getting oil; with that said it is historically accurate. However, the other nations are able to advance extremely quickly and easily and and gain huge amounts of resources and land before you are able to compete.

Loved the idea.

Flawless.

Story/Instructions: 4
The idea for the story is great, but the lack of script makes it just a giant free for all.

Additional Comments:
This is a really cool idea. My only real complaint is the lack of script. Russia and become way too big and powerful too quickly, while the player (Japan) is stuck in feudalism for a disproportionate amount of time. If you added a script, say something like "Japan is forced by the US to open its country to trade" and give the player advancement benefits it would do wonders.

In addition, by the time I had caught up to Russia, China, and the West, they had already been duking it out for some time, leaving an extremely powerful Russia, a tiny China and a few islands under colonial control. If you added scripts that allowed for the Sino-Japanese wars, and for the Russo-Japanese war this map, dare I say it, would be just about flawless.

Overall, awesome job. I am just picky with this period of time in this part of the world.

Good fun, but could have been better/more challenging

Balance: 3
Russia was too powerful. In the first 5 minutes, North Korea was captured by them and only with the joint efforts of Korea and the Colonial Powers could South Korea be saved.

The Rebels were also just a bump in the road to world domination, hardly an obstacle.

Korea got crippled in the first 5 minutes.

Creativity: 5
I was working on a scenario in these times when I downloaded this. 5 for Creativity

Map Design: 5
Beautiful Map, altough Hong Kong and Taiwan seemed to be a little misplaced

Story/Instructions: 1
None, sorry for the bad rating here, because it would have been a good scenario if it had instructions.

Additional Comments:
Can I use the map for the scenrio I'm making? (The History of the Entire World one) I'll give you credit for everything you've come up with.
