Medium sized FFA/TDM map with an underwater theme, hence the name Aqua! From when I first loaded the map, I liked it, it's plain, but the textures are put to good use with nice architecture in places. I loved the little touches in this map, the Sub Rover type thing in the loading bay, the aquanauts equipment on the side and the great underwater view through the windows! All adding to the atmosphere! The jump pads are superb. Game play is not that fantastic, a team game centered around mad chaotic shoot outs for domination of the GL/LG. A FFA game was pretty poor. Item positioning is not that well thought out and needs some serious play testing, bot play is ok-ish.
This is a great first time map but lacks solid game play, look forward to seeing more!

Tigs Notes: The biggest problem with this map is the layout. It is basically an 'S' tunnel shape. A layout that wraps back on itself would have helped a lot more than two dead ends.
