I always wonder why whenever people call their map 'temple' it always seems to be using the 'Korriban-esque' texture set, with the only odd exception being yavin, and usually those maps also include 'Jedi' in the name. My point is that you get tired of those themes very easily, and this theme is one that has been done to death. I'll let the author off though, as it seemed even Raven jumped on the bandwagon for that with their final mission in JK3 SP mode, and for that, they need a good slap. ;)
You'll find everything you come to expect from temple maps here - glowing torches with fire, yellowy brick walls, statues. It's all a bit old, but it's not done too badly. The lighting is average, for want of a better word, albeit a little too orangey. There are some lights without sourcing, and some sourcing without lights. The architecture is also fairly average, although the attempt at making the flaming fists above the podium with the cross on it was a good bit of creativity. The texturing in some areas does leave a lot to be desired though. Mostly, the textures are adequate, but on some sections of the wall and the cross podium, the images used just look weird. :(
There's no music either, nor ambient sounds from the torches. Oh, and they don't burn you if you stand in them. A lack of botroutes is enough to pull down the overall score, and there was something else I found odd too. The music file included doesn't work. Well, it didn't seem like it was at first anyway, so I opened the file in winamp and discovered it's just a blank track. This was a little odd.
