I like the playing field with this one. Itís scaled in such a way that the battles are frequent, but not overwhelming. With a graveyard motif, you feel right at home dieing on the battlefield. Itís a dark and gloomy map complete with sounds, tombstones and the appropriate lighting to set the mood for the theme. The z-axis play is minimal, but there, and includes a sniperís perch that you can get to via a steam geyser.

With approximately ten players, youíll be vying for the power-ups and the nuke, grasping for that edge on your opponent. The bots worked well, but didnít seem to be much of a threat. The item placement is good, but could be improved upon. A dragon soars overhead every so often; not that youíll have much time to look around, but itís gliding through the foggy sky nonetheless. Definitely an Ďabove averageí map thatís worth a look/see.

Nice map. Plenty of atmosphere and a unique style all it's own. Flow and item placement seemed ok in a local match against bots, but that's all I'll say regarding gameplay until I find out how it plays online with decent players. Be especially interesting finding out how it plays in TDM.

IMO, it's a lot better than most of the "ownage" maps.

Edit: Having played the map a bit more (still haven't seen it online yet!), I've bumped my rating up a point. This map plays great and looks even better!

Technically speaking brush and mesh work are excellent, the layout is well thought out and flows very nicely. Blocking volumes are correctly used to prevent the "stickiness" that plagues so many other maps without making you go "Huh, how come I can't get there?". Item placement (except for one of the two rocket launchers) is superb. Framerates are excellent due to extensive use of static meshes (many of which are custom) and properly placed antiportals for occlusion.

This map is "ownage" quality in my opinion. It's very atmospheric with excellent terrain. I especially like the rock arches that encase the outside area. They're good sniping areas if you can get up there via translocater or multiple jumps. Bots played well with good weapon placement.

We played this map last night with about 5 or 6 people.

I was impressed! The author paid a lot of attention to detail (there's even a dragon/wyvern thing that flies overhead if you pay attention). Also, the author picked a song to go with the map so I didn't have to listen to that god-awful menu music.

The gameplay was good, as well...that's much more important to me than all the technical hoop-lah I often see in map design. If they can have much the better! This map ran well even on my decrepit old computer.

My only problem with the level were those big rib-bone things that served as bridges. It was probably meant to add atmosphere, but for Pete's sake, you're already in a cemetary...why not go the extra two steps and just bury the bones?

Oh well, it's always something with me. Great map!

DOWNLOAD NOW!!! That`s the best usermade map I`ve seen for a long time. Atmosphere is fantastic.
Maybe CliffyB should have a closer look at this one, OWNAGE is a must!!! Great job!

This map is awsome fun. Pure Carnage, as opposed to being more tactical.
No deliberate z-axis fighting, except for a few areas... however there are a lot of upper areas that are easily reached with a well placed shield jump... so mastering this map will lead ot plenty of z-axis fighting! :)

It looks good too! (although the rib cages looked a little goofy against the rest of the map, maybe they should have been textured differently by the mapper. There is also heavy use of fog, but it fits the style and atmosphere so no biggie)

Performance is very good, even with the quite filling default setting of 9 players (or was it 9 bots?)

Overall refreshing. Please try.

Definately approaching professional quality, if not already there. Atmosphere alone was worth the download and the gameplay was excellent. The new static meshs, although not particularly elaborate, fit the map to a tee. Overall one of the best made (and most importantly most FUN) user-made maps I've seen so far for UT2K3. I wish I could make maps with this much atmosphere. Simply amazing.

Is there any way we can get a petition going to have CliffyB give this Ownage? This map most definately deserves it.

This map is Surpurb!!! the only thing cheesey is the way the teradactil flies , he is motionless. ( the large flying object in the Sky ) it would have been cool to attach some movers and make his wings flap.. otherwise its " ownage "

Actually to many people think this map is my work only, but thats not right!!! It has been released undermy name, because I`ve got a internet connection but the idea for this map came from my brother Ares. This map is a 50-50 teamwork.

So don`t forget about that and thx for the overall positiv feedback :)

I don't know, I have mixed feelings on this one. It has some essence, plays quite well, but still...

Good map! Good gameplay and the amount of detail makes this one a good choice to any server. Next time you (and your brother) should use more z-axis. It's the only thing that is missing from this map.

Hei! Isn't good to frag someone and put it directly in his tomb? I love this map!

Bah, boring. Make terrain, slap in Epic's static meshes, and call it a map. It looks good because UT2k3 looks good. Good maps should have more custom static meshes and not reuse old Epic's ones even if they don't fit in the maps theme...Why bother making some buildings. They take time!

Also I can launch/jump up on the cliffs and see holes in static meshes.

Not a bad map, but could be much better.

This map just made it onto my maplist and looks like it'll stay there. Very nice map, not too cramped, action is spread out nicely. Bots work well on this map. I like this mapper, check out Tree-Of-Ages, one of his other excellent maps.
