3 levels, I really like the mapping style. The third level is the very best and is a great take on human environments.
This scenario has a particular section that makes BoB's formidable due to very thoughtful enemy placement where in which you can't always see where you're being shot from.
I've never played a scenario that had me spraying the assault rifle wildly in the general direction muzzle flashes and fusion bolts.
It could have used two more terminals to explain that the tan colored Vac-Bobs are on your side.
Most of all, at no point during the scenario was I ever confused as to what I should be doing or where to go.
