MINUSES SUMMARY
Deadly Defences is the 6th map produced by SnAz, and is probably my least favorite. There are some nicely constructed areas, and the challenge on any skill level is very high. I really liked the texture choices, they complimented each other well, and made for a nice, clean look. The map was however, littered with problems. The first being an instant death trap. Should you mistakenly enter the duct-work before you grab the security pass, you're finished. Pushed right into a laser with no hope of escape. Next there is the invisble Gunner standing in the courtyard. Either that or the wall is attacking. If you look closely at the picture above you can see the trails from the grenades launched right out of a wall. Even a no-clip trip revealed no Gunner to be found, yet the grenades and bullets were flying. (This bug may only exist on skill 2). The final big complaint is the rocket which you need to escape the map in. If you wait too long after raising the ramp, the entrance to the rocket will be blocked by a clip brush, and you cannot enter. Add this to a few mis-aligned textures, the improper kill count (I left the map with approx. 10 Strogg left to kill, but never found them, even with no-clip), several buttons which I'm still not sure what they did after I pushed them, and it really killed the enjoyment for me.
