Calm Monotone: "Ladies and gentleman of the community, I wish to present Kaynehril's masterpiece map, Gruta, to you. And, in address to Mr. Kaynehril, on behalf of the community and JK2Files.com..."
Wild Frenzy: "OMG-WTF-WOW-HOLY CRAP!!! This is incredible!!!"
Calm Monotone: "Indeed. This map may not have a lot of open areas, lighting, or all the gimmicky eye-candy that seems to possess the minds of most mappers, but it rocks the competition with ingenious terrain, unique layout, and just honest-to-goodness l337ness."
This is an FFA map by Kaynehril, but so much more than most maps. Instead of relying on the ease of rectilinear shapes/brushes to create the environment, he has exploded with a much more realistic terrain, hearkening to Moria or some other deep cavern.
What can I say, but "Wow...". I know I seem to keep going on and on about this, but this map has "terrain". What's the big deal?, you might say. Simply this: it's rare, and it's realistic. Take 95-98% of the maps submitted and they all follow a simple boxy shape, with maybe a few curves thrown into the walls or ceiling for diversity. And although it doesn't have good lighting or anything besides the fundamentals (no bot support, etc.), I still give it a 9 right off. I realize bot support for this would be incredibly hard, but with a kickin' background soundtrack and adding CTF capabilities, this would instantly be at least a 10. Good luck with the updates, and get 'em in soon! :D
Pros: 1. Read the review. 2. Did I mention I liked the terrain?
Cons: 1. No bot support, new textures, sounds, etc.
Bot Support: No New Textures: No New Sounds/Music: No Game Types: FFA, TFFA
