VertigoHazard is a large CTF map, in the same sort of style as BR-Skyline (ie. the tops of very tall buildings). Each of the team's bvases are placed in a tower on opposite sided of the map, with a single larger tower in the middle. There are many jump pads to get from platform to platform, and the routes to get across the towers are located going through the middle tower. The flow of this map is very smooth, and the bots faired pretty well in this map. The gameplay was very fun, and there's plenty of pace for two teams of 6 or more.
The placement of weapons was well though out. All teams had easy access to the lightning rifle, which was an essential in this map, because of the sheer size, which lent itself to playing sniper. There were some powerups in this map, but I felt that it could have used more adrenaline, and some double-damage.
This map looks very nice, and has a damp, city feeling to it, which is what I think the map maker was aiming for. The map has a nice rain effect, and a gray fog, and several bulliton boards on top of the buildings, strengthning the look of a city. The buildings use the same textures as those in Skyline and Plunge, and they still look good. My only beef is that the area below the towers looks funny, becasue of the combination of the skybox and the fog. But, meh. That's not real important.
Very nice map, worth the download.
