Visually, Eulogy is compact and busy, but the attention to detail and lighting in this map make it look very impressive. Jex uses textures by ydnar and evil lair to a create a game space with bevelled concrete, chain link fencing and industrial grating catwalks that allow you to see the action on the level below you and head toward it. Then, out of the corner of your eye, you'll spot a moving shadow on the floor from an overhead exhaust fan's blades. It will distract you long enough to miss the rocket headed toward the imminent explosion of your brain pan.
The detailing is extensive. Pipes and railings are everywhere. There are plenty of surfaces to get nailed with some nasty rocket splash or have a grenade bounce in any direction. Don't worry, armor and health are readily available on both levels. Looking like a techno/industrial space from Half-Life, Eulogy is a fragfest factory that should be on OSHA's top ten most dangerous places to work list -- at least for 2-4 players.
Go ahead though ... play in the street.
