We all know the abandoned base from Quake. We've all played it and we've all
This re-make is very true to the original map, and it plays accordingly. The
little courtyard where the mega health is a good area for action, as is the
connecting "pool area".
The authors use of textures is good, and the use of shadows is a good way to
emphasize the dark gloomy nature of the map. If I had to pick one major stand
out problem, it would be that some areas of the map are a little too dark; with
the underwater exit to the "pool area" being a great example.
Also, some of the stairways and ramps seem a little steep; the stairway near
the railgun is a prime example. It's something that I'm sure the author noticed,
however due to the amount of area available in that section of the map, there
is not much zyg0t3 could do about it.
The map plays well over LAN, with my housemates, having a solid hour of
play without boredom. I would recommend downloading this map. Its few problems
are grossly outweighed by its brutal play.
