Omaha improved since the last time, NSM. It was far more fun now I knew what to do. I enjoy playing WW2 scenarios and campaigns, at least when they're good. I'm looking forward to the full version of "Tears of Europe".
Midway, though, was not was good as Omaha. The author has set an objective, which is to destroy the Japanese fleet. I did that, but I didn't win. I searched in thw hole map, but there were no Japanese ships left. Maybe you should improve this small bug.
The balance at the Omaha scenario was a little bit to the German side. I lost many more troops than the last time I've played this scenario of yours. That point was most important for the rating for balance.
In Midway, the balance was good. When the big battle was over, I had only 5 or 6 ships left, and they were all heavily damaged.
But what annoyed me at Midway, was that the Japanese sent all their planes to the island right away, so my P-51s there had no chance of even come out of the airport.
The creativity of Omaha has been rated by me before, but I'll say it once again; There's the good ol' sentence again; D-Day scenarios are being made so often, that they can hardly be fun.
But because another scenario is included in this file, it should be a 3. And because I haven't seen any authors yet that have the time and patience to make a campaign about all "big" battles of WW2. I hope that will not decrease quality of further scenarios.
Map Design: 3
Omaha was nice. The beach was mostly sand, but after that, there was grass and nice ambient objects. Omaha has deserved a 4, here.
But again, Midway lowers this rating. There was water, and an island with a town (Midway). This seems very default to me, so Midway should receive a 2. The 4 and 2 together make a 3 for Map Design.
The instructions were clear, which surprises me to be very honest, because some files have very bad, or even no instructions on what to do. These scenarios have that, and I completely understood what to do.
But you could make them a bit more complicated. They were simple; destroy all Germans, destroy all Japanese. You could put in some more things, to really challenge the player.
- Improve the balance at some points.
- Add some more instructions to the scenarios.
- Map Design could be better at Midway.
Good luck with your final file.
