AT A GLANCE: This map is small. It is very small. It even features a low sky ceiling so movement is incredibly restricted. To the best of my knowledge, the author ("Zero" as he calls himself, which accurately describes his attention span) probably wanted to save time and effort creating a quick map that even the dumbest of humankind can download and then spooge on their monitor just because they have another Quake map to frag their demented buddies with.
Since I don't have the heart to subject any humans to this mind-twisting roller coaster of monotony, I decided to load my favorite bot, Anarki, into the map and have a friendly match with him. It appears that Anarki couldn't take the pressure of the map, and decided to commit suicide various times while blowing me up at the same time with a rocket. And I thought the bots were pretty stupid.
DESCRIPTION: From text -
"This is my first map for any game. It is designed for 3 players."
Three players?! I hardly fit two! Somebody gave Zero a goddamn clue, 'cause this kid doesn't have a sense of volume.
"Build time : 3 days"
Folks, I dabble in Q3A editing myself, and I must say that this map can be created and compiled in about an hour. What Zero could have been doing in between creating this migrane of a map is anyone's guess, but more than likely trying to find a way to make the map even smaller, and drive people mad with frustration because every time they respawned, they would be greeted with a rocket at point-blank. The fact that one of the voices inside his head told him to release this map to the public and receive unfathomable amounts of embarrassment makes me wonder if he spikes his morning coffee with bleach.
THE MAP: Look at picture. Zero couldn't have used more than 4 textures. If you're gonna put in a sky, make it spacious. Maybe in Zero's crazy claustrophobic world, jumping into the air results in severe concussions. It also seems that Zero, here, has figured out a way to cut down on r_speeds... THE LACK OF A MAP!
GAMEPLAY: WHEN WILL THE PAIN END? At times I questioned why I didn't take after Anarki and start killing myself. Strike that, maybe I should start hoping that Zero either leaves the mapping community, or remembers how the fuck to resize brushes. I'm not killing myself over this moron and his God-awful creation.
FUN FACTOR: About as fun as swallowing shards of glass dipped in jalapeņo pepper juice. Any map that looks like it can fit inside of a small, one-story house does not make a good map.
THE BOTTOM LINE: The only way I'd play this map is if Zero offered me money and a BJ. This being his first map is reason enough that he shouldn't have released it.
