A Long time ago I had to do a write up on Blade Runner and it meant watching the film over and over, especially the first scene. When I saw this in the inbox I jumped for Joy as Ive always thought a Blade Runner map would be a good addition to JKA ^_^.
As soon as I got in-game I could tell this would be exciting to explore. Although small due to its game type, this map definitely caught my eye straight off and a lot of features reminded me of the first scene in Blade Runner. It was a few weeks ago I thought Hexes's Ghetto map had a hint of Blade Runner in it, and was hoping for his version two to have the famous noodle bar in it. My dreams came true when I came to the bar stationed on the side of the road. Takes you right back to the film in a lot of ways and even though this is a duel map, it still has a very futuristic and Sci-Fi feel about it, so it automatically goes well with Star Wars ;).
The rain sets the mood for this map as well, it was raining in the actual film a lot as well so this was a good touch for the overall feel. Textures are spot on and we also have one of the vehicles used in Blade Runner parked on the side of the road. In some places though, the map seemed a little, boxy. I'm not a mapper myself but it just didn't look right in various parts of the map. As well as an outdoors to the map, we have an indoor room that looks a lot like a lobby area. I could definitely see a lot of potential for fun in this map. The music is also perfect. Vangelis did the original Blade Runner music and its found its way into this map as well.
I cant really find anything wrong with this map at all. Its the perfect size for dueling and it does look a lot like Blade Runner, and probably the best you can get it in JA resemblance wise. You wont be disappointed if your a Blade Runner fan. Even if your not, I still suggest checking this out, and the movie as well.
Overall a good addition to JA and I'm sure a lot of you will be interested in this map! Give it a download if you like what you see.
