"Password2 - Final" Review

FUN FACTOR: Password2 is a very unique map and seems capable of some very interesting firefights. There are possibilities for both open/outdoors fighting and narrow hallway firefights, with cover behind various items/crates/file cabinets etc... Password2 is definately a fun map to play.

ITEM PLACEMENT: No complaints here. Objectives / Obstacles were placed in appropriate places to keep the battle interesting.

BALANCE: Same as above, the map seems fairly even. Could be a bit too hard for the Allies, but this can of course be fixed by evening teams.

SIZE vs USEFULLNESS: At first, as with all maps, I was a bit disoriented, and unsure of where to head, and the lack of objectives in the Limbo menu (not the mapper's fault) didn't help. The author specifically agrees that it is most fun when players know where to go, so give it a run through solo before you jump on the internet.

QUALITY: Very well laid out, well selected textures... Definately a high quality map. A few parts of the map had some awkward lighting, but none bad enough to make your eyes jump out and run away. At some times the textures seemed repetitive, but not as bad as many other maps. Well made.

CREATIVITY: This is where the map earns its big points. The random password makes the level very unique, and although it's a gimmicky feature, it's a cool one. :)

Well done! The Capn.

ABOUT MAP - This is a small map, intended for up to 12x12 players. - Map has "Password" gimmick, generate random number and player must input correct password to get objective. - I believe it has good game play if players know the objectives, and it will test your teamwork.

Allies Objectives 1. Pri: Spy the Password and input it to start process, then defend the Emergency Button until process finished. 2. Pri: Steal the Endoarm. 3. Pri: Escape with the Endoarm to the waiting Truck. 4. Sec: Breach the Service Door. 5. Sec: Capture the Flag.

Axis Objectives 1. Pri: Prevent the Allies from spying the Password and input it. If Password is input, push the Emergency Button to abort process. 2. Pri: Prevent Allies from stealing the Endoarm. 3. Pri: Stop the Allies from escaping to the waiting Truck. 4. Sec: Defend the Service Door. 5. Sec: Hold the Flag.
