It's a pity JK3 doesn't get any custom SP maps, it always seems to be JK2, which is quite dated nowadays, and I had to re-learn the saber combat all over again. :( Anyways, this map is a short single-player campaign which is about one of Mace Windu's away missions, similar to the way Jaden gets them in JK3. He's been sent to investigate some odd 'black hand' group (I think that was the name) and ends up getting into bar fights, club fights, and finishes with the final duel against the leader of the group. The level design itself was fairly good, however the lighting was very dark and the overall architecture wasn't fantastic. The puzzles weren't that difficult, and I would have preferred a few more of them. However, the cutscenes were very well scripted and the voice-acting, for lack of a better word, was nice. I did enjoy this map, and some of the humour was quite amusing - some of it was horrible, but other times it made me smile. Installing the file was also very easy, as it comes with it's own self installer, and program loader. The Mace Windu model wasn't bad, but it could've been better, and I've never seen a sith with a yellow lightsaber. Still, there's a first time for everything right? ;)
So yeah, if you still play JK2 and are looking for a short and fairly enjoyable romp, then have a look at it, but don't be expecting a wholly-entertaining experience, as unfortunately the level is just too short, compared to the default levels, and you'll rip through this in one sitting due to its difficulty level.
