This is a very nice map and would be even better if the overlapping brushes were fixed! Nevertheless it is nice, the author has taken advantage of a few things JA sports, 1) good FPS with global fog, 2) rain, 3) scripted NPC's 4) grass sprites.
Although small, it looks great, the fog with rain adds a sense of a really murky night which is a rare used scene in JA maps (from what I have seen since I got JA). The fallen tree is a great little touch as it shows an area that has been under decay for quite some time. The gravestone area is simple but looks right, a few spread out headstone in no real order sided by a broken down wall and a few large graves.
Venturing down into the nicely mapped crypt you're greeted by 2 very odd pools of water that can only remind me of a sci-fi where you'd expect something to jump out at you from the deep. The bone model on the floor down here is a very nice touch and the lighting is clearly coming from the flames in the corners which adds to the ambience.
As I said before, there are overlapping brushes that at times got to me; they really can let down a map. I also found 1 or 2 texture errors (mainly the pillars in the crypt) and also a visible caulked face at the bottom left of the ramp but this map has none of the "remember and learn this for the future" points that I can find.
This also has been released as an FFA map...I'd call it more a perfect duel map.

Dark Crypt ------------- Mapped by: lukeskywalker1 (Benjamin Shukrallah) Email: email@example.com AIM: lukeskywalker215 File Name: FFA_dark.pk3 Description: This is a map, that was requested by RptheHotrod (#include) Its sort of a graveyard area, sorrounded by mountains, with a burial place in the center of the map, and ghost walks around it, sadly, it can die.

Install: Put the .pk3 file in the base directory, to uninstal, delete it. Credits: RptheHotrod (#include): Sounds and Ideas.
