Whew, this is like a double time warp for Averus @_@; firstly, this is the first time I've been able to review a JK2 file with my new install of JK2. (Don't ask where the old one went >_>.) As such, brought some good old fashioned nostalgia.
The second time warp brought me back to the old memories of the Animatrix movie...compilation. As such, I recall the Final Flight of the Osiris piece. This duel map represents the rather sensuous opening scene between the two duelists whose names evade me. Accuracy wise, I'm not sure the author could have gone too astray, given how most of the matrix dojos seem roughly the same. As such, I will give the author credit for at least emulating the matrixal atmosphere, right down to the actual featured music. Textures are rather expertly crafted, and are quite exquisite. The only "flaw" in this map? No .arena file, so you'll have to manually map to animatrix_dojo. Other than that, a solid and relatively complete package.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Extract the animatrix_dojo.pk3 file into your ...JK2GameDatabase directory. DESCRIPTION: This map is a recreation of the training dojo seen in the opening scene of "The Final Flight of the Osiris" on the Animatrix DVD. I know its not 100% accurate but I figured I'd release it anyway. There is a secret feature to the map, nothing huge, but I figured I'd throw it in there for a little more Matrix fun. To find it just look for my name carved into some wood. BUGS: None that I know of. COMMENTS: Being a big fan of the Matrix trilogy, this was a fun project to work on. So much in fact that I may even start work on the same map for JK3. I hope you enjoy playing it as much as I did making it, thanks for downloading! -Anything in this map (including textures, shaders, etc.) _CAN_ be used as long as the appropriate credit is given!
