The Wasp Factory
2 - 8 Players players | Reviewed by DaZ - Saturday 21st July 2001 @ 8:04pm
A new map, and a new texture set! Kell has gone all out on "The wasp factory" and created a atmospheric industrial outpost which has been infected with some alien life forms you may find familair... The visuals are gorgeous and original, although the map is not too detailed architecture wise, the textures give it an added boost and flesh it out a little. Only lovely feature is that item positions are marked on the walls so you know where to find things...
4+ player DM is absolutely great fun. The map is superb;y connected and item placement is spot on. The red armour room is particulary nasty as there is always someone in the water trying to grab the armour. Grenades rain down from above from the two located on the top level, and for all you crazy rocket jumpers there are two yellow armours at the top as well if you can get to them.
All in all this map is great fun, it looks great and it plays great, my only critisism is that the lighting is too bland with no real definition of shadows, its all too bright.
4.0 out of 5.0
