Bitter, what can I say? Today many newbies don't even have to deal with this map. I'm not going to say much about this map, I like to write about what's good in a map, there's not much of that in this map though. I won't say that EVERY game goes bad here. But about 80% of them do go bad and I'd much rather be wasting my time on some other gloom map. Now Castor Troy can map better than this, if you look closely at bitter you'll notice the entity and brush placement that hints at a good mapper, but the layout just killed the map. I'm sorry Castor Troy, but this is the first map that I can't rate very well.

Comment: I really can't say anything bad about the textures, they all aline, they all fit the theme.

Layout

Comment: This is the part that everyone has a problem with. The only reason a game would ever last longer than 5 minutes here is if there's a 5 minute rule being enforced.

Creativity

Comment: A room, A room, A hallway. The door on the human base was the most creative thing I found, sorry.

Overall
Cube

Comment: He held to all the map rules for this map but you need more than that to make a good map. Castor Troy can obviously map well, this is just not a prime example of that.
