Review guide and notes
All submitted reviews should be in plain text format. Use a plain text editor
like Notepad. If you require text formating features like bold or italics, use
the HTML version (<b>bold text</b> and <i>italic
text</i>) or the common forum version such as [b]bold[/b] and
While almost every review submitted is used, we almost always perform some kind
of editing. This may be as simple as a spelling or grammar correction or it
could be a lot more. It will all depend on the quality of your writing style.
You can suggest a level be rejected from being reviewed if any of the following is true:
- The level is a 'boxed' map.
- The level is not a full-vis.
- The level crashes your PC.
- The level is unplayable.
- The level has a damaged or missing pk3.
- There is no text file with the level (sometimes the text files are inside the .pk3).
- There is no authors email in the text file.
Once you have your review ready for submission send it into us.

Offworld by [Kona] - (Tourney/FFA - 2/4 Players) - alkdm12.zip
A great looking map which realises the full potential of the [LINK http://tarot.telefragged.com]HH3[/LINK] Clockwork Droid texture set. The lighting is also superb, and the impressive atmosphere is finished off by a good choice of ambient sounds. The layout is tight, with a high level of connectivity that means that tourney or 3-4 player ffa games are fast paced and exciting without ever being overwhelming. The item placement feels spot on, and there is even a secret to be found if you look hard enough. Bots play the level well, and games against bots are almost as enjoyable as human only games.
This one should be in everyone's map collection.

And another sample
Dracula by Priv - (FFA - 4/8 Players) - dracula.zip
A large castle map with solid architecture and a convincing atmosphere. In places the map looks impressive, with some great texturing and subtle lighting. However, other areas feel rushed and would have benefited from more work on the lighting and brushwork. There are also some missing textures, and high r_speeds mean that there will be a noticeable performance hit on all but the fastest computers. The central courtyard is the focus for the map, with the other areas remaining quiet for the most part. Consequently, the game play is repetitive and becomes boring after a few rounds. Game flow is also disrupted by overly narrow corridors and a lack of clipping. Bots do fine.
Fun for a few rounds only.
