Those of you out there who loved Hexes first version of his Ghetto will not be disappointed to see a v2.0! That's right, although not a lot has been added, a few rooms and secret places, this map still has an awesome feel and it was fun exploring the new rooms. Here's my original review:
Generally when I open up a mod or a map and take a look at it in JA, I always manage to find something that the map or mod reminds me of. In this case, that opening scene of the film "Blade Runner" with the noodle bar man and Harrison Ford. Maybe a little bit of Tokyo in here as well, crossed with a bit of Coruscant....ANYWHO, the review!
Ive chosen to re-review this from the previous review of the JK2 version, mainly because I have quite a lot to say about this map. I really like some of the features, lots of nice pretty lights, moving screens, gives it that Coruscant/Blade Runner feel which I really do take interest in. Definitely the main city is my favourite part of the map. The snipe wars and throwing people off that top balcony...I could have such a blast, and I'm sure you will to. The main area leads you off to several different places of the map, each for a different purpose I presume. Many areas for holding duels in, and the architecture is top quality in almost every place of the map. The textures give this map a really nice feel as well, the variation is great and the quality is also good.
All the rooms are decent sizes, and have a unique look and feel about them. Again perfect for mass FFA and merc wars, but I could also see some very nice RP's happening here as well. That's what I like about the map, it has the potential to be used for other activities such as RP, and is not limited to one type of fun. A suggestion for a V2 though, put a bar outside, then I can recreate that "Blade Runner" scene Roll Eyes (sarcastic). One thing that really put me off though, was the choice of music. Now I'm more of a Metal head/old school rock fan, so techno Star Wars isn't really my thing, but hey, I'm sure others will like it.
I don't think there's any difference between the JK2 version and this one, I checked the screenshots of the JK2 version and I'm pretty sure its the same map. Author states there's seven secrets all together, so lots of time for exploring!
I like this map, I suggest giving this a download if your a futuristic/Star Wars/Blade Runner fan, you wont be disappointed.
Whats new in this version? well Hexes has added a load more things to check out room wise. There's a maze, a pit lava duel room and other new rooms for exploration. As far as I could tell, all the new places are secrets. I no-clipped the map to find them so I cant point you in the right direction I'm afraid!:D A couple of original rooms now have npc support in them so you can spawn until your heart is content.
If you liked the first version, you'll love this one! Give it a download!
