If you havent heard of AS-Bridge by now, something is wrong with you unless you just came into the community. If youve never played an Assault map by Claude Mier, I pity you as well. Claude is probably the most well known Assault mapper, with maps like Lavafort, Bridge, and maps like Manticore from Eavys pack. This particular map is about blowing up a bridge (thanks Captain Obvious!) in under 16 minutes. The map was made in early 2000 I believe, so the looks arent quite up to par with some of the UT maps made in 2002. The looks were good for its time, but some parts, like the lighting, definitely show their age, as does some of the terrain. The bridge still looks solid though, as do most of the interior parts. The texturing is good for a most patr, though a little more deco couldnt have hurt. Despite the all that though, the map still manages to look good considering its age.

The main problem with the map is the bots. As you can tell from screenshot number four, I had no problem beating the map in 5 minutes doing everything by myself (yeah yeah I play on Skilled :P). They could be pathed better too, and arent really aggressive. They do have good spots despite that, more on the interior than the outer parts. As far as FPS goes, the map is fine, since its a UT map and its about 3 years old. You should have no probs running the map.

Gameplay is what makes a map kids. Claude Mier makes gameplay. Though the bots can be a bore at times, if you play this with humans...my god. The layout, objectives, all of it, make the map one of the best, if not the best, Assault maps in terms of fun. Some people dont like the map because its old, but if a map has good gameplay, who cares? If you happen to have online friends or a LAN or something, play the map. You may even be able to fnid some UT servers with it on it.

Pros: Holy strawberries Batman this map is fun! Gameplay is the pro, and thats why the map shines. Thats why it got an Ownage, and thats why its a classic

Cons: Shows its age in some areas, especially aesthetics

Bottom line: You have UT2K3 for looks people. Go download this and be a kid again. Comes highly recommended from me.

*Note: the map may have a 6, but look at the cast score. Go download. Now. If it was an independent scoring system, the map would have a higher score.

it could've been better in other terms (like visuals, some places look very ugly, example the final tower in the end, where the spaceships are floating over helipads) BUT gameplay was pretty cool (though long).

while it's quite decent, it didn't impress me that much...it's a bit old now, and the indoor stuff was quite dull. still, it's ok, but i prefer the Coldsteel series :)

one of the better large and long maps out there. the ending is simple but well done. other than there being seemingly no point to that bridge ( it looks like a road but doesnt give the impression of going anywhere) its nice, and a good mission. two thumbs up!

I remember being very impressed with this map the first time I downloaded it, however, that was nearly 2 years ago and it's just old now so no good visuals at all. Also, the botplay sucks, you can just miss out the second spawn point and the defending bots don't bother following you so basicly if you make it inside the base, you can complete it without seeing another bot at all.

/ Check out the retard below btw :p

Hate the spawn in the water. Other than that great map.
Also the objectives on thte bridge could be protected so players don't skip all others after launching to the bridge.

This map is considered the BEST assault map out there by quite a few people :) I think 6 is quite harsh... It deserves atleast an 8.5 IMHO :D

[edit]

AS-Throne and other semi-good maps get a much higher score than this? That 6 is VERY harsh for such a great map. *changes rating from 9 to 10 to make up for the low review score*

One of the best assault maps I've ever played! To be more precise, it's the BEST of all!
Unrealheads, check the mission again. The Bridge itself is a symbol of human life. Crossing the bridge is the quest a person meets in his life. And the supreme goal lies at the end of the bridge.

Forget that Quake-ish (yes, quake-ish!) UT 2003 and return to the one, the true UT! Start with this map.

I'm not even a big fan of Assault, but this map is just good, clean fun. I would love to see an update with better bot work, but how likely is that?

BTW - The map looks fine. As long as it isn't completely puke-inducing, who cares?
The gameplay is ALL!

I had played this map for as long as I could remember owning UT, and I'd always considered it good, mainly because there is a substancial lack of decent Assault maps that are long enough and have nice enough visuals and have good enough gameplay to keep you amused for the duration of the game, but I'm not kiding myself any longer. This map is just like the rest, with rubbish architechture, poor lighting and too many problems with gameplay such as dodgy bot support and really bad bottlenecks. Shame.

Beatiful piece of work, Mier. The mission is long, defending the base is fun (I don't like defending much, but the sniper action in this map is intense!), and the graphic for the stage are pretty good. Takes my 128 MB a while to load it, but it's an incredible map once it gets going. The bots know what they're doing, which is a plus since I usually play alone(56k sucks, it's common knowledge). I like the underwater cave. It's a nice touch. Worth the download if you even remotely enjoy AS. Perfect map.

Mhaan, this map exist about 3 or 4 years in here,and still played regularly over the net.

One problem- some people found a way to get on the bridge from gates!! I guess they use the liftjump+impact hammer near the shore. You could block it out with a roof over the base or something else. But oh whell, there are always some people, who can dig through a wall!

nice ASSAULT map. I like it, that you made a long objective chain.

As many others have said, this is probably the best Assault map ever made for UT. I've had it for years and it's still one of my favorite maps of any game type. Get it. Now.

well...not the best one I've ever played, but a really awesome one.
the first impression of the visuals ist very good. two starting points for the attacker team would be very good, but the defeders can easily snipe you if you leave the start point. a great disadvantage. however, if you managed to destroy the wooden gate (simply shoot it)you gain entrance to the lower base and work your way up to the bridge you have to destroy.

visuals are nice, but a few rooms look too cubic. there are also some missing trims.

lighting is...hhhmmm...could be better. doesn't create a real atmosphere.

ending scene looks great, with the bridge exploding and falling down.

hhmm....a few disadvantages, but a great map

The feeling I get from this map is awesome. This is the kind of map that should have been with the UT CD itself.

It's perfectly balanced with a perfect amount of time to get everything done. The only problem with this I've found is the main gates are SOMETIMES hard to break down, since theres a certain spot it seems to only take damage. so I have to give the bridge lock quite the beating before it actually goes down.

Otherwise this is a map I'll never get bored with.

One of my favorite AS maps. Bots do their job well (I play with Godlike difficulty) and the objectives are well-placed. Expect quick matches with human attackers who know what they're doing. There are plenty of spots that have "launch" written all over them. Overall, an excellent and classic map.

Pretty decent Assault map, one of my favorites. Of course, most AS maps that feature placing explosives and detonating them from a remote location are my favorite ones.

Awesome map. Defenders can be REALLY tough from the very start of the map. The shockball shooting auto-cannon is kinda imbalanced (bots love getting killed by it). Ironically, it's the final objective that's the easiest to tackle.
