Off to reviewing "Operation Beach Head"!

Gameplay: The game looked good, but it looked a bit to imbalanced in favor of the Yellows. 3
Photography: A couple pictures were blurry, but most of them look just fine. 3
Violence: Nice and violent, especially once the Peaches counter-attack. Lots of detached minifigs and red bricks! 4
Writing: I liked the scenario, and was written pretty decently. The opening pictures added a bit more story appeal. Good job! 4
Overall Appeal: I liked this report quite a bit. The battlefield and creations are solid, and the battle became engaging. I would have liked to see more customization in your armies, though. Overall, a good report!

Overall Score: 3/5 (Average of all scores, rounded)

Gameplay: Pretty darn good. Massacres are always fun, but I sensed that it was pretty equal for both sides. 5.

Photography: Clear, and I admire the use of micro for the mountain. 5.

Violence: Tolerable, and pretty good amount of explosions and gore. 4.

Writing: Not a proper ending. 2.5

Overall Appeal: Pretty fun to read, but whether it was the peach racism or lack of ending I felt like this was missing something.
Overall Score: 3.5

Thanks everyone for the ratings and comments.

@Swordsalmon: the reason it was so one sided was that the clone troopers went first, and they had better weaponry, so they managed to take out most of the peaches in one turn (the peaches rolls also sucked)

@ Silverdream: the story has more parts, but I haven't gotten around to posting/making them, so that's why it seemed like there wasn't an ending.

Again, thanks for the scoring and comments.
