MINUSES SUMMARY
Points of Iron is Ben's first Quake2 map. The level has a few creative touches: a neat transport, a cool secret area, a clever entrance to the main map, creative lay-out... but I didn't enjoy the gameplay much. Fights alternated between having too much room to move in, or far too little room. I had to drop my P200 64meg Voodoo2 system down to 640x480 res. with 8 bit textures, and still had some slowdown. I found a couple of areas where I got 'stuck' (needed a no-clip).The computer updates weren't well implemented, and the gameplay just didn't flow well. The map looks pretty cool, and the lay-out is really great, but the overall experience was lacking.
