Old Crater

2 to 4 players | Reviewed by xen - Tuesday 7th May 2002 @ 4:06pm

Paraboil's maps have often been praised for providing high quality gameplay, if not shining in the looks department. Sadly, this new release is an exception. Consisting simply of a large enclosed hole with a thin ledge around the sides and some rocky stepping-stones floating in lava, it's hardly a work of art construction wise. The bland lighting, limited textures (I counted four, including the lava & sky) and complete lack of detail fail to enhance, too.

Looks aren't the only thing that are minimal however; items are a tad thin on the quantity front, with the map offering one red armour... and nothing else. No matter what the playerload, the only purpose of playing seems to be for practising shotgun-aiming skills, although it's easy to run out of shells unless you get killed (which isn't difficult considering the amount of inescapable lava on the premesis).

It's fun for about a minute but the novelty soon wears off.

(Note from Paul : blame me for the review screenshots.)

On mine it Deathmatch a map - or I am mistaken ? :)) The map Amphi too has no a difficult design and much textures - but is very popular on all world!
Simply similar that yours the judges are very conservative :) One pleases - that the map is pleasant to many present players also it love! I wish good luck :)

erm yeah ParboiL your map is a 'deathmatch' map, but here deathmatch is meant in the FFA sense.

So technically the map was played on the right mode, and its still sucks because it sucks. SUCK!

That second screen makes this map look AWESOME! How'd you make the red armor float upsidedown like that Parboil?

I think that Xen simply has laughed it is necessary by me! It concerns also mine nick (Paraboil instead of ParboiL) and second screen too!
Except for the poverty Xen to me nothing has proved :)
