Map review of 4 Ways

Sorry, we couldn't find any images attached to this page.

4ways is an example of fairly minimalist level design which paints in broad strokes as it grasps at rooms full of combat, a massive restocking room where you spawn (why not just give the player the ammo and guns when you first spawn at skip the annoying ammo respawning sounds?), and half-baked ideas. That's not to say it's bad or even a poor execution of what I think it was attempting to- I think 4ways is perfectly comfortable in its simplistic broad strokes. It flexes when it wants to with a laser gimmick area and a fairly nifty hangout rave room. The rest of the map is corridors full of enemies in what are perfectly fine corridor arrangements.

Full disclosure: we did not complete the laser room and got bored of it halfway through and quit the map. After a couple attempts we all just sort of agreed it didn't seem like anything we wanted to play more of.

Overall, I would say 4ways is an alright fast map if you have a speedy, nonserious server which needs lots of maps in its rotation.

Pros:

  • The combat is fine
  • Lots of weapons
  • The fun room was fun

Cons:

  • Laser room was less fun
  • The over-simplificty of some of the areas made it feel bland at times
  • Overall forgettable
Score: 6 / 10
