SUMMARY
First impression told me... this map is weird looking, it's going to stink. Also, it's been out for a while, and no one likes it. But... I did. This map is very unique, and is definitely Jeff's own creation, no copying or lack of imagination evident here. He took the time to prepare a very long background story, and used a funny play on Larry Niven's "The Mote in God's Eye" as a level name. This hinted at creativity which the level delivered. Add this to the fact that the map is truly a challenge to finish, and it comes out a winner. The only problem was that it's a bit small. If Jeff had made the level as massive and complete as the back story, it would have rated even higher.
