The Review: This is an E3 type of map centered around a bank.
While not boasting many details, the map makes the most out of strong lighting and
solid 3DR-type texturing. The map looks its best outdoors
with a good mix of various signs and palm trees decorating the streets and buildings
casting strong shadows (notice their consistent angle!). Indoors
a few areas (most notably the main hall) were rather lacking and bland, and trimming
in general could've been a bit stronger, but strong lighting still carries the map
pretty far. My only lighting related snag is that some areas were a bit too dark,
but playing this in the middle of the day didn't really help either.
Combat is good but a bit tough at first as you face several Pig Cops and a tank right at the bank entrance. A few times it seemed to take forever to find health, but I'd suggest looking around for any extra supplies. Toward the end there's a small design flaw where you're required to blow open a crack; had I not had one Devastator ammo left, I'd have been unable to finish the map. The Nukebutton then takes you to Penthouse.
