Emerald Hill is an unique China Town flavored CTF map. As always, mapper dONKEY manages to impress with original content in the form of new textures, models and sounds. The overall lighting is excellent and the atmosphere is superb. There are just so many intricate details to enjoy. This maps deserves a slow walk-through so that you really admire everything that he managed to put in here. I especially like the central area and the LG pit is a nice touch.
Now to be honest, I’m not much of an CTF player, so I can’t really say a lot about the gameplay part. The bots seem to do fine and I had no trouble playing a couple of rounds with them. One could argue it is perhaps a bit too small for a CTF map. That could be due to the tight corridors and limited space to manoeuvre. That is the only criticism I have really.
