Tatooine seems to be a very common planet in Star Wars games. It must be one important ball of dust, eh? Anyways, today theultimat brings you his contribution to Battlefront II's collection of Tatooine maps, Beggar's Canyon.
The entire map is enclosed within a huge canyon (thus the name of the map) with a bunch of Command Posts sprinkled throughout. There's objects and cover near these positions, but there is not much more than sand in between Command Posts. It could use a bit more sprucing up, more rocks and arches would look good. Some dust would help the visual aspect a bit. I think a small sandstorm or two would add to the variation. Some of the canyon objects in the distance tend to disappear when you look at them, so mess around with visibility in the sky file to try to cover that up.
Gameplay needs some work. It's a big canyon, speeders and other vehicles are a must for this type of map, unless you like really, really like walking. There isn't much, if anything, in the way of planning. Most of the AI will just stand around, or get stuck on objects or the canyon wall. In addition, the AI count was the default, so you're really not gonna see much of the enemy unless you go charging into their base. Oh, and I believe I forgot to mention that you'll find some Tusken Raiders in the Tusken camp. And for some reason Jabba the Hutt is hiding in one of their tents.
So, in conclusion, this map needs
- -More objects/ map detail -A tad bit more dust -Vehcles! Speeders and hovertanks, or maybe a command walker. -Planning and barriers. -Up the AI count.
