Lacrima Christi

2 - 6 Players players | Reviewed by DaZ - Sunday 29th July 2001 @ 12:31pm

If ever there was a contest for best looking gothic DM map, I think this would win hands down, it is the single most impressive map I have seen in a LONG time. The looks a totally gorgeous, a huge gothic church or cathederal with parts exposed to the open world, some areas have been completely ripped apart by earthquakes are blasts and the broken architecture that is left behind is simply outstanding...

And thats just the first part, the gameplay is totally amazing, balanced, brutal, tactical and flows so greatly around the map you wouldn't believe it! 4 player FFA was the best fun I have had in ages and 1 vs 1 was also amazing, if this map has faults, I didn't find any...

Item placement is spot on, its just too hard to describe but the map just flows so well, I dont think I have mentioned the 3d aspect yet either, most areas at least double leveled and all the rest have 3 or 4 levels on them, each with their own purpose and items... Wow.

Some people were asking when MPQ is going to give another 5/5 score, so I have been asking myself "does this map sit next to efdm12, baldm8 and others in terms of sheer quality"? And after much deliberation, bloody hell yes it does!

There was exactly one problem I found with a passage being almost invisible from certain angles. Apart from that, an excellent job!

I'll have to download the map first, but I don't think this map will lead astray too many followers of the one called bal..

What an amazing looking map. The only thing i didn't like was a bit of trim that stops at the bottom of stairs and starts at the top.. apart from that it was a class map, great architecture with all the rocks and stained glass windows. I especially loved the little cave bit at the bottom with the wall lights mounted into the wooden posts =) great stuff!

#8. Very nice map ^

Tis a very nice map as it is but if you use tomaz engine and add a lil fog it look absolutely amazing.

yum yum

#9. Thanks ^

Wow, I'm really glad you guys liked the map.
It's a huge honor to even be mentioned in the same sentence as Bal and Frib let alone be compared to them, thanks for your comments
:-)

Or how about having your map graded above theirs in the 10 best?? ;)
