Yes, you did read that right. Halloween. Not only was there a problem with the submission initially, but when the file finally got to us safe and sound, it ended up buried in the Rejected Files folder somehow, where it remained for a month, only to be randomly stumbled upon just now by me. Some people have all the luck, no?
Well, we're here now, so yay.
First thing I have to say, is that I would not like to be the poor son of a bitch whose blood that is on the walls. Yowch. However, in all fairness, said blood does look rather lifelike, a nice little bit o' Photoshop magic at play I suspect, but blood and other spilled liquids are often tricky to get just right. But there is a helluva lot of it. Overkill.
The layout, while being simple, is condusive to UT2004 gameplay. Plenty of space to move but not too much, the detail is simple, and while UE2 can handle pretty good amounts of detail without performance issues, that does mean that those of you for whom a Mac would be a brilliant upgrade over your current gaming PC will have no problems on this map, and that's a good thing I guess. To my disdain, I found a lack of sniper nests. No sniper wub. :( The little details such as wreckage are all present and... nice, I guess. Probably the best element is that an attack can come from any side at any time. Personally I'd rather play TDM or Invasion than DM on this map, purely for the squad-based element.
There's plenty of nice little cookies around. The jump booster effect, for example, sports pentagrams. Giant tarantulas on the wall, which really freaked me out (arachnophobia). Blood vials and bone shields replacing the health and armor pickups, and obligatory gargoyle statues.
All in all, as a Deathmatch map, I'd use this for 1v1 cat-and-mouse. Team Deathmatch, as many as you can support, and invasion, four or five at the most holed up with the bad guys roaming the rest of the place. It's not too elaborate, but it's definitely got the slasher flick thing going on, and I could see myself having it in frequent rotation.
