This map earns the GMD Seal of Approval!

I've played this map maybe 100 times, and I had fun every time too. The simplicity is probably what makes it the funnest, seems like all of the simple maps do well amongst the community. A mere walk outside the human base, and you have the mid-section of the entire map. Across the room, in the opposite corner, is the visible alien base entry. Though this map probably won't do so well in games with more than a dozen or so players, it's a good map for helping attract players to the server..

You would think that spam would be horrible because of the fact that you can pretty much shoot from one base to another, but it actually balances out. Since the aliens have to escape vents that lead directly to the middle, and the humans have such a wide exit, pinning opponents is nearly impossible. The dark lighting on the alien side also helps a lot in stopping camping humans...

The one downfall I found in this map was the lack of new textures.. A map this small probably didn't take very long at all, he could of spent a little time (that would of otherwise been spent on making a large map) to make some nice new textures. He managed to make up for that, though, by being really creative with his texture placement, doing some things I've never even seen before.

By the map review powers given to me (my powers needing limits), I hearby give this map the GMD Seal of Approvalę because I really have no big complaints on the map, and I've had such fun games on it..

Comment: Though I doubt much time was spent on this map, only a few hundred brushes total, SOME new textures could of been used :)

Comment: I have had too many good games on this map to give it anything less than a 4..
