This is the brother map to Cdrbond's 'Globetrotters Practise Gym' map. You can go and read the review of that HERE: http://jediknight2.filefront.com/file/Globetrotters_Practice_Gym;57089 if you haven't already, as the basic gameplay principle between the two remains the same.
This map however, is much better than the first for a number of reasons. There are still some of the old problems from the other map, such as the lights without sources, and the texture misalignments on the pitch floor, but I'm sure by looking at the screenshots of the two you can see the improvement in this one. This is primarily due to the increased detail in this map. Whether that's due to the fact that Ice rinks are by default more interesting places to be, is up to you, but this one definitely seems much less bare, and consequently, provided a more interesting gameplay environment.
I still question some of the textures used, and on the glass the image used is far too small which makes it repeat. The corridors between each entrance of the hockey arenas are also horrific - a long fall short of the standard shown in the main arena. The music is also less lively than in the practise gym, but it also fits this theme better. And of course, the ice is slippy, making the gameplay harder. Bot-routes are included here as well, which is always a positive, plus there are also some weapon spawns this time around.

*********************************** Jedi Knight: Jedi Outcast *********************************** TITLE: Globetrotters Hockey Arena AUTHOR: cdrbond007 E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org FILENAME: GT_Hockey.pk3 FILESIZE: 7.93mb DATE RELEASED: 6 February 2006 CREDITS: I would give credits to anyone whose work I used or borrowed, including graphics and models (or any type of voice acting or in-game acting, for videos). INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Place the .pk3 file in your 'Program Files/LucasArts/Jedi Outcast/GameData/base' folder. DESCRIPTION: This is simple map to accompany the Harlem Globetrotters skin pack and Globetrotters Practice Gym. After much research, my colleagues and I have discovered that ugnaughts make unbelievably good basketballs in Jedi Outcast (If you use force push, pull, & grip). The game is simple: ally with your teammates to push/pull/grip and drop ugnaughts and Generals players into the bottomless pits at each end of the ice rink (and be careful not to fall in yourself!). BUGS: The slick texture property on the ice makes your player slide nicely in single player test mode, however in multiplayer mode it seems to make you run constantly and slide for some reason...this is not really a bug but it does make the game more challenging! COMMENTS: Look for the Harlem Globetrotters Skin pack and Practice Gym map as well. More maps are hopefully soon to come! If you like it, please let me know! Thanks and have fun!
