The Shadow Experiment

By Deku(PB)

Brief Specifications: 128x128 Installation Terrain, 5 Players.
Note: This is a Decently Long review. so....Read it!!

This is one of the Better maps of Current Day mapping in my Opinion. it succeeds where Other "Shoot Monster" games Fail. thats what i liked about it the Most.

Gameplay - 8.6/10, Its hard to see how anyone cant like the gameplay in maps like This. its one of the best Types, i Think it could use some Tweaks though.

Sounds (.wav) - 10/10, it is IMPOSSIBLE to NOT Give this a Fantastic rating! everything sounds Very realistic, i Love it!. and for all these sounds, Not once have i seen a DL more then 1 minute.

Fun - 8/10, It can be incredibly fun at times. and incredibly boring at Others. all in all this map is Crazy Fun, Try it with afew Friends..cause i Dont really recommend playing with random People, they'll die very fast =)

Terrain - 6/10, Im gonna make this part Short, k? the terrain is nothing special. i've seen it Amillion times! especially in the Areas where its alittle Sublevel area with 30 Doodads in it. Doesnt fly to well.

Professionalism - 9/10, Very Professional in my opinion. others may see it Differently but making maps like this is Very hard.

Overall - 8/10, What? did you want a Perfect score? Sorry i cant do that =)

And Now. the Moment you've all been waiting for ( I Think ) heres the Map!

Decently long review...haha. Yea right. I don't think sounds should have its own category in the ratings. The sounds are rarely produced by the mapper him/herself and really shouldn't be an aspect of the overall score.

But anyways, I've heard some good things about the map, although I haven't tried it yet. I should get around to do so.

Personally i don't like the map. The units stand there, i hear player 2,3,4 gunshots and it's easy.

Hope the shadow experiment 2 is better....hopefully.

are you guys like a clan or something? or is it 7-7's other accounts?

personally, i don't see what the craze about this map is. i didn't see any advanced trigger effects what so ever(he even used dark templars to create no-go zones, which honestly looks very noobish), so i have no idea what amazing triggers deku was talking about.

storyline was non-existant, there was no extended terrain, balance was horrendous(units were too easy in the beginning - because they just stood there - and way too hard in the end - what was up with the mass of infested terrans/kerrigans?)

this map is borderline playable and i hope tse2 is alot better.

personally, i would give it a 4 1/2 out of 10

Could you make it so that we could switch wepons and get more, perhaps use grenades or even pick what tunes we want to hear. Maybe u could do sum kind of elevator effect.
