In the dark decayed

2 - 6 Players players | Reviewed by DaZ - Saturday 28th July 2001 @ 2:46pm

Another 3 maps by kell! Thats 6 in the Qexpo week, this man is one fire. Heres the first...

"In the dark decayed" is a great looking little map sporting some brand spanking new medieval textures and is set inside a small battlement or castle complete with spiral stairs and a dark moat. The buildwork is excellent and although the map isn't as detailed as it could be, every brush has been used to good effect. Lighting is great with some spooky shadows cast by walltorch fittings and the atmosphere is thick.

I am very glad to report that this map is not another corridor fest like kell's last map. In fact this map plays beautifully! The layout is so spot on and the game flow so brilliant that this map shines, 1 vs 1 was a little slow because of the maps size, but fun none the less, and a 6 player FFA was just brilliant, get this map!

A few niggles though (moan)

- There is no rocket launcher :(

- There aren't any more niggles...

Not a problem with me. For better or worse, the RL totally dominates Q1 DM. It's really a breath of fresh air to do without one.

Interestingly, RL's do not dominate the gameplay of many of id's DM maps...
