The first thing I thought of when I saw this map was "Total Recall". I'm sorry, but growing up in the 80's and 90's, cheesy Arnold Schwarzenegger movies were part of life : ) This is a large, mostly outdoor level, based on ...well, yes, Mars. The outdoor area is huge, and the author has placed Bulldog spawn points for some GTA/UT2K3 crossover action. If you have not had the chance to mess around with the Bulldog yet, this is the map for you.
The cunning placement of teleporters means that even on foot this level is easy to navigate. It's big enough for vehicles, but not so big that players feel dwarfed when hoofin it. Also, the many obstacles mean that drivers will need to hone their skills, and ground troops will have cover so they don't get flattened. The bases are very well designed, and fit flawlessly with the overall tone of the map. I love the use of the window to see into each base from afar. I would have liked to see the bases better marked with each team's colors, however. I was happily surprised at the frame rates; with the level this size I expected worse, but they are more than playable. Bots do fine, but humans may be preferred due to the Bulldog. Bots just don't seem to know what to make of it, and only seem fit as speed-bumps. Weapon placement is great, and seems well thought out for a map this size.
The thing that stands out most in my mind after playing this level quite a few times is the many original things I saw done here. The seamless integration of the bulldog is one, but there are some really great things to see in this level. Instead of relying on a "one-trick-pony" with the bulldog, Bucky has built a solid level that will push for teamwork and add vehicle tactics to your list of things to master. Of all the CTF maps, this one is special, and should be on your download list. ~rAzOr~
