Rusted Factory

1-on-1 players | Reviewed by Paul - Monday 14th May 2001 @ 4:31pm

Qurnel's latest is a joy to behold. The setting is gritty industrial and there is a lot of detail. There are plenty of nice touches from the hammers and spanners abandoned under perfectly positioned spotlights (strange that) to the rogue saw and screwdriver on top of random crates to the convey belt pushing a monotonous line of crates ala Quake 2. The textures are equally well detailed with several different custom signs such as the red armour notice and the "camp now" signs.

The layout is built around a three-layer skyward looking atrium. The encompassing layout is bit disjointed with no real path of smooth movement. Lots of lifts, ladders and teleporters intervene here and I thought this would make for very jumpy play. To a certain extent it does but its very on edge, keep your wits about you stuff. You'll have to keep your eye on the ball, so to speak, to rack up those frags. For me this type of play is enjoyable for 15-20 minutes after which it gets on my wick and begins to annoy. Playing it for short bursts worked best.

I'm not too sure about this one. Duel was nice but FFA didn't really blow my mind.

Quite nice looking though.

De gustibus non est disputandum.. :P

Oh and by the way, I think it's impossible to make a classification of maps, so don't match them :)

#9. I played this vs a bot... ^

and its a VERY dominating map. not that this is bad, it actually nice for a change with all the hyper-connected maps around, but I hope the author was aware of this :)

#10. you wha'? ^

I agree completely, MisYu - It is impossible to make a classification of maps.

In other news: 'Saving Private Ryan' and 'Abcool' are just as good as Rusted Factory...Happy now?
