I'll always say, if you want to get on the good side of any reviewers named "Maveritchell," take a stab at including a campaign mode. It's always a really neat bonus (even if it's a simple one!) and it really sets a map apart from a lot of other maps.
I'm pleased to say that this map, "Galidraan: Snowcapped Forest," by bobfinkl, has done just that.
The campaign mode is, in my eyes, the real feature of the map. It's a very simple campaign (really just "run here," "shoot these," "capture this CP" a few times in order), but it's still something different than assault or conquest, which makes it a welcome change. The mission has a lot of AI and you'll probably die once or twice doing it, but it's definitely worth a playthrough. The ending was a little abrupt, though, and left me wondering what exactly the point of the last objective was.
The map itself is pretty well-done, too. It's a larger map, but it makes good use of the space (lots of foliage and trees well-placed over hills) and as a result doesn't feel too large. It's visually pleasing and does a good job of making the player feel immersed in the snowy forest environment. Bobfinkl has definitely been getting better at creating polished-looking environment.
There are also custom sides included, for your playing pleasure. They're not drastic changes, so they still feel natural, but the changes are enough to be noticeable. Also, a custom loadscreen! Not a huge change, but it makes a nice first impression to the player.
So go ahead and give it a download, it's worth it in my opinion.
