MINUSES SUMMARY
This map is perhaps the most visually stunning Quake2 effort I've seen. Attractive architecture, wonderful track-lighting, great lay-out, and good texture choices make it hard not to gawk at this map. Unfortunately it was way too easy, and there were no good fights. There's just too much ammo. Once more, an Spq2 author drops 40 slugs and a Railgun on you, and then fails to make you need it. Let me tell you, it's no challenge picking off Beserkers (of which this level had FAR too many) and Icarus's with that much firepower. This killed the level for me, as I only had to re-start once, when a Berserker surprised me near the start of the map. YooShin has an incredible eye for detail, and cunstructs a highly attractive, solid, professional quality map. But, this isn't enough, since it's gameplay I'm after and not an art show. It's worth the download, and not a bad map to play, but I expected more. Hard setting should be HARD, that's that.
