I think he's saying that compared to most maps he has seen, this one is "unusual" and therefore he wasn't expecting anything like it. In other words, he probably likes it. :)

This map transports one to a truly believable environment where there is sufficient ambient sound and lots of eye candy. I agree with Mark, this is a real keeper and worth the download. You may want to store an extra copy somewhere safe. Game play isn't so much of a concern, in my opinion, as I enjoy adapting my playing style to each map I encounter. I always love a map that is so technically flawless and so visually engaging. High marks for fKd.

Visually stunning, and technically very accomplished. User of shaders, clip etc all excellent.

On the gameplay side, item pickups are a bit thin on the ground, lacking in ammo boxes and health orbs, especially for the target game-mode FFA.

Flow is good although over-connected. There are not enough scenarios where you're in a fight and unable to move in close to your opponent very quickly. This lowers the depth of gameplay quite a bit.

fkd really is an accomplished mapper and has mastered the technical side to its fullest. I'd love to see a collaboration with some gameplay-focused mappers/players, the outcome would be amazing.

I initially dismissed this map because I thought there were just way too many colors (I know, I have high standards for your maps) and I didn't think I'd ever be able to actually play it without being visually confused. But I've been recently inspired to take another look at this one and I must say I'm glad I did. I had some really good games with 3 bots.

The layout is much smaller than I assumed it was in the beginning. For me that's always been a tell-tale sign of over-connection. Looking around I think you probably could have gotten rid of a few of these bouncers as they sometimes overpower the stairs. Still, it's never too difficult to move upwards so that's good I guess.

Don't get the wrong idea about the color palette comment, the details in this map are amazing. Perhaps I should just quit while I'm ahead here and say this:

Good one : ).

Sorry I didn't give you a review (since this map has been sitting there in the queue for a ridiculous amount of time)...but this map really is the best thing I've seen come out for a really long time..everything about it shoots way above what people have been putting out lately...plus before that. Very skillful. Actually...I'm working on a OpenArena spawn for myself only, and I was able to put this map in all by itself with just the game engine..and I played around on it for like near an hour. It does play good..very connective and a good item layout!

About the clipping... the tester must have been looking less closely... ;)...

That completely aside, this map is indeed awesome, especially the stacking of detail on detail, and the amazing brushwork. It is really surprising to see that the map still plays this well with all the detail. The layout may take some time to understand, but it works well... playing the bots is fun.

Even should anyone no longer care about playing maps, download this map alone for the visual experience.
