Lately we've seen many professional-level maps for Call of Duty 2, and I just love writing these reviews! In this case, HyBr!d brings us an incredible production of the Italian beachhead at Salerno. With every high-quality map, you must expect certain conditions to be met, such as a good layout, realistic lighting, natural item placement, expert texture choice, and last but certainly not least, playability. This Salerno map easily meets and surpasses all these terms, but of course, a truly excellent map has some particularly exceptional 'special' touch to it. In this instance, I absolutely love the stormy sky and ambient fog effect because the two together really add a great serious feel to the map. The billowing clouds in the sky actually seem to be coming down around you with the addition of the fog. The map is compatible in Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy, and Capture the Flag, so you've got plenty to play with; just check out the screenshots below, and download this amazing new masterpiece now! :thumbsup:

When playing sd the allies will spawn inside higginboats which will transport them to the beach. The boats will wait 9 seconds before they leave, so don't wait too long if you want to be allies. The easiest way to leave the higgins is by climbing over its side (climbing over the front is possible but a bit harder). And DON'T move back into the ocean; you WILL get shot down ;-) Also for server admins: you may want to increase the sd round time, due to the size of the map. And limit some weapons and nades. ====================================================================== This readme file was generated at MODSonline.com Visit MODSonline.com for custom game content: Downloads, Projects, Forums, Tutorials, Videos, Reviews, News, etc. http://www.modsonline.com/ November 24, 2006
