the good

the bad the summary
mark shan's second foray into quake2 level design, waiting quake 3, is a marked improvement over his previous effort: tombstones of id software. while this level is still a bit small and the action a bit cramped, 'waiting' features a much smoother gameplay experience, a lot more action, and much nicer (if still amateurish) architecture. this map is fun to play, even though is feels a bit rough and unpolished. it is worth the download, and enjoyable enough to stand on it's own merits. in a nutshell, the level features fighting in two courtyards, and a variety of small hallways and a few smallish rooms. it's all pretty standard fare, and nothing noteworthy occurs, but it is fun to play through. the gaint Q3 logo is mildly impressive at first glance, otherwise the architecture is mostly functional, but bland. what is surprising is just how much of an improvement over 'tombstones' this level is. it is a testament to mark's ability to learn, grow, and expand his vision and creativity.
