Nunuk is famed throughout the q3a community for his awesome spacemaps, so this large gothic arena comes as a bit of a surprise. The map consist of several large, complex atria, connected by smaller rooms and passageways. The texturing, lighting and architectural detail is of a consistently high standard throughout. It's just a shame that with all the fast paced action, most people won't have time to stop and take in the visuals. The game play, like everything else about this map, is excellent. The well thought out layout and item placement means that all areas of the map see plenty of fighting, and the game flow is superb. Batcula is also well suited to team deathmatch, although ideally the red armour would have been best moved out into the open in team games. Bots do fine but don't often go for the red armour or haste.
Another must have map from nunuk!
