I knew our run of non-blocky maps had to end sooner or later. Ah well, good things come to those who wait, and abandon those who begin to take them for granted. Or something like that. And I'm sure that at least half of that sentence comes from a beer commercial.
Right, well, there's not much to talk about in this map. You've got the typical long tables with a row of weapons on each. You've got a bathroom (albeit an unnecessarily large yet empty one). Balcony overlooking a big empty room with a few targets in it? Check. Small room with two windows and a few chairs, present and accounted for. Yep, that's pretty much all there is.
Technique-wise, there are a lot of things left to be desired.
Top three problems? 1. Lighting. It's uniform, most likely because the map has been done on a meta compile. More realistic lighting would be nice. 2. Texturing. It's plain, boring, and really not what you'd see. 3. Design. Square blocks are all well and good, but there's far more which can be done. Look up some tutorials and let your imagination do the rest.
Aesthetically, this map isn't visually pleasing. It's blocky, uniformly lit, plainly textured, and just too empty. The only real merit is the perfect FPS. Also, the music is... what the hell is the music? While we're on the music, it's a short soundclip which loops infinitely, so it gets boring fast.
It's not bad for a first map, but the author really should have taken their time and done more with it, because there are quite a few very simple additions which could have been added and made all the difference.
Sorry, but I can't really recommend this map. Just doesn't seem to be much use for it, as other maps do everything this one does and more, and they do it better.
Regardless, you're free to download it if you see fit, as always.
