Fans of the Knights of the Old Republic series should instantly recognize this map as the derelict flagship of the Sith Lord Darth Nihilus from Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords. For fans worried about accuracy, you shouldn't be disappointed. Admittedly KotOR2 was not my favorite game, and Nihilus was not my favorite Sith Lord, but despite these things I always found the concept, style, and execution of Nihilus's Ravager to be fascinating and, well, downright rather cool. We have nothing less here.
This is just the bridge portion of the Ravager, so don't be expecting to explore the exposed bowels of the ship. Despite this limitation the bridge is absolutely huge -- much larger than I remembered, though I haven't played that portion of KotOR2 in probably two years -- and really from what I remember looks spot on, right from the glowing red steps to the Telos and Citadel Station skybox. There's plenty of room to fight, some interactive bits (don't attack the scenery!) and... well... just remember that the Ravager's a bit beat up. There's nothing separating you from the great wide beyond! Take that as a warning to watch where you jump.
MovieBattles fans will be happy to hear that this map is going to featured in the next MovieBattles update. It includes bot support, and is available for both duel and free for all. Great release, Mace! Definitely a great reproduction, and fun to play to boot!
