Now this is a map with atmosphere. It reminds me of one of those Medal of honor levels where you are sneaking through a sleeping town and theres Nazi's hiding everywhere. Dont ask me why, thats what it reminds me of :) I really enjoyed the scenery in this map. It is meant for one on one, and is therefore relatively small for a map (I wish this was bigger) but what is here is amazingly well done. The little windows up in the rooftops and the gargoyles add this cool feeling as you run around, and the full moon skybox just polishes off a nearly-perfect look. Eyecandy aside, this map plays pretty decently too. It's setup in a similar way to the Epic DM 1on 1 maps, with similar weapons and similar kind of places. The layout seems familiar too.
If there is to be another map like this, I would enjoy an Onslaught map based in a small town like this, or maybe an Assault. Maybe it's me, but I enjoy maps which dont fit the 'theme' of the game, and this map makes the game seem much more relaxed and peaceful. You know at night when you're on holiday and you can hear crickets like buzzing and stuff? Well the ambient sounds make it feel almost exactly like that :) If anyone has ever been in Amsterdam at night, you'll understand what I mean :D
Altena is made for 1on1. I did not want a map with the highest connectivity, I build it to make the players think about their next step-more strategy. So you can´t leave every place fast as possible, but the gameplay is fast and intensive. Best playing by using the default player load for a bot match (2 bots) or in a player vs. player. Ps: Use the barrels to dodge up. Test settings: Brightness: 0.77 Gamma :0.76 Contrast: 0.76 Audio settings: default Bot skill: masterful thx4 downloading and playing Description ingame: Once upon a time...................... And now, the tournament committee set this place to provide a bloody deathmatch. All fairy tales are forgotten if the fight begins.
