DM-Io is a medium to large deathmatch map. There's some z-axis action, with the ground and a higher level of catwalks. The environment is the highpoint of this map. Its the surface of a volcanic planet/moon. This is well done. There is lots of lava flowing, and many lava and steam geysers shooting up. There are many cracks in the surface, which are filled with lava. The texture use is sort of plain, the ground being a dark sort of stone texture, with only a few areas of other patterns.
The lighting and fog of DM-Io is all red, which gives it its atmosphere. The lighting of this map is nice, but could have used a few coronas and projectors to relly bring out some of the features of this map. The weapons in this map are in great quantities with lots of ammo, so there's plenty of action. Also, there's many powerups for adrenaline, a few superweapons, and some double damage. With the second level on the map, there's lots of opportunities for sniping.
The ambiance of this map is well done, because of the hot feeling from the red, the lava stuff, and the environmental sounds of the lava. The gameplay on this map is really fast paced combat, all with the risk of falling into the volcano. DM-Io is a nicely done map, and I found it to be rather fun. Just watch out for the lava :)
