Sh*t, who am I to argue with Ryoko?
I concur -- this is an outstanding map pack. I'm particularly fond of King of Infinite Space for groups of 4-6; Watchtower is excellent for 3-5.
I'd've given this pack 5 stars except that Watchtower's limited respawn points results in waaay too high a spawnkill incident rate.
Yes, there are weaknesses in this pack, but they stem from a time when the Art was simpler and netfeedback nonexistant.
This map pack is spectacular because the flow is terrific (ok, ok, IN THE FOUR THAT ROCK).
Excellent use of elevation shifts and relatively sheltered respawn points are two under-emphasized high points to this map pack.
I just wish the latest versions of A1 didn't crash Grendel's Happy Cookie...
