My Description Here is, what I think, to be one of the greatest remakes of the original Q3DM17 "The Longest Yard" map made. The map still proves to have all the same qualities that the original had but with a face lift. I actually wanted to keep playing the same map after I finished my first game but I know I had to write this review, but that might just be the old time Quake gamer in me talking. The only thing that I think is missing is the railgun, while this is no fault at the mapping himself, I just felt empty without it. I'm going to just dive right into the rating now so keep up.
The Rating Note: I normally do not give strait 10's, actually I hate to do it. I am a hard guy to please but when it comes down to it, some maps do deserve to actually get 10's. Tech: The map is stunning to look at, every little detail is there from the original plus a lot more! The two ships in the air on a launch pad, the satellite, even the portals look nice. Everything is where it should be and it looks nice while doing it. Fun Factor: If your an original Quake 3 game like me, you can't help but have fun on this map. It is great for one on ones and then your full blown fights which will always be a challenge. Item Placement: Again, a great job was done placing all the right items in the right spots to replicate what was in the original. The armor in the air can be a problem once in a while because it needed a platform but that is really not the mappers fault again, UT3 engine kind of makes you have to have a base so the platform is needed to keep the map overall appealing. Balance and Stability: The map is perfectly done and not much can be said about it. Quality and Creativity: This map really did get a face life, it just looks stunning like I said before. Every little detail is there making it great. I had to dock it a few points in the creativity department just because this is a port and is not 100% the designers fresh idea. While I wouldn't say not to download it because of this, it is just one of the rules I go by when reviewing a map.
