Here's a very solid, HUGE, excellently constructed map, by an author I'm not familiar with. Your mission: destroy a reactor inside a chemical processing plant on a Stroggos moon. This map is big, I mean huge, we're talking bigger than id maps here, and Matt has made excellent use of the space he has filled up. You begin outside the base, and work your way in, through a series of "disable this - to access that" objectives. Item placement is great as you make your way through half of the map with a shotgun and a machinegun. Health is kept minimal, and the Strogg are placed in such a manner as to make fights difficult, but not impossible. No Railguns, or Rocket Launchers here... just good old big messy brawling, while sweating as your health dips below 25 for the 5th time. Architecture is unexciting, but solid, well done, and attention is paid to detail. My only gripes: 2 HOM areas (which the author acknowledges in his read.me), more messages would have been nice, as I pressed buttons more than once without knowing what they did (until later), and it was a bit too dark in places. If I have to resort to making minor complains as these, you can bet I really enjoyed this map :) Oh, and the South Park refrence at the end is very funny. NOTE: be sure to read the text file, for the warning about map size... you will need a lot of RAM to play this map, due to it's enormous size.
