MINUSES SUMMARY
Finally, an excellent user-created Jedi map hits the scene. As Kyle you must enter an outpost, eliminate the Empire invasion, and make your way to the medical wing of the facility. Right off Jason shows you that this is a creative endeavor as the map opens to a bit of a cut-scene, and the story is presented. Story is a key here, this map is an experience, not just action. Careful attention must be paid to the on-screen messages and to the architectural details in this level. You will not simply blast your way to victory, but will need to navigate your way through some top-notch lay-out, and solve a series of puzzles. I was very impressed with just how realistic the atmosphere of the map was. Explosions boom as the Empire bombs the structure, fried electrical panels spark, tunnels are caved in, and the entire base displays evidence of recent attack. Attention was definitly paid to every detail. The action was very nicely done, with several small skirmishes, and an occasional challenging gang attack by the Empire's invaders which will keep you on your toes - and fighting hard. Not content to settle with the meager creative building blocks presented by the JK full-game, Jason has constructed several new 3dos, made excellent use of new cogs, sounds, and mission briefings, and even includes a pseudo cut-scene introduction. Add all this to a few splashes of humor, and excellent secret areas, and this map is a clear winner. My only complaint was a very irritating bug which would eliminate my force powers if I tried to re-start a saved game. Since force powers are required to finish the map, I needed to make it through the entire level in one try... not very easy :) So, if that's not enough to stop you (and it definitly should not!) Then download this at once, and enjoy it!
