Maybe it’s my video card or the anthrax in the air, but this is, by far, the best looking ‘me-little’ map I’ve seen. The author’s eye for detail is spectacular! It reminds me of a map I made years ago that had a kitchen in it; the difference being, this map is all kitchen and it makes mine look like a 3-year-old created it. I had difficulty trying to decide which screenshots to show, since we’re limited to ten. Check out the screens; they don’t even do the map justice!! In one of them, you’ll see an egg floating through the air. It’s a ‘mover’ that moves off the plate on the table and flies around so you can get from point A to B. You also have lifts for movement, and you can climb up kitchen utensils. You have working mouse traps that fling you around, you spawn at spinning hotdogs, pick up eggs that are laying around, and everywhere you look, you feel right at home.

You must understand something: I really don’t care much for these ‘me-little’ maps, but this one stands out as being a work of art. I kept trying to find fault somewhere, but about all I could come up with was some pick-ups bunched up a little in the refrigerator. There was a health pick-up, a kegger, and a shield all in close proximity. That’s about it. The bots were masterful, even in a design that presents many challenges to them. Of course, with any of these maps, the gameplay is skewed so as to be a counterpart to arena maps. In other words, you do quite a bit of long range fighting. I like the down and dirty action where you fight up close. This is probably one reason why I’ve never cared much for ‘me-little’ maps. But this one is the exception to the rule. If you load the map up with 16 players, you stay plenty busy. If you like to hunt around for prey, try the lower limit of 6.

I suspect this map will hit people in one of two ways: either you have the same problem I do about big, open-spaced battles, or you enjoy them. Just so you know, you won’t be engaged in a lot of long-ranged battles. You’ll run into bots on the shelves, the counter, table, etc., and while you’re busy with your close range battles, you’ll get surprised by a bot who has a bead on you all the way across the room. You don’t know where the projectile came from; all you know is, you just got zapped by a ‘sleeper.’ It gives the map some added dimension. To sum up: gameplay is so-so, depending on how you like your battlefield, but the visuals are very realistic. One last thing: You’ll need Bonus Pack One to play the map. The stainless steel never looked so good.

I can say one thing- WOW!!
It looks like a real life scene.
Unfortunately , the framerate drops when the battle goes on in the middle + with large number of players.
Whell what can you expect from the Giant map??!
The adrenaline is replaced with eggs!? what the hell??
They too small!(GO to properties and find DISPLAY , then go to 3D scale and increase X Y and Z scales to 2 or so~. And why is the scelet fly from the table in the air!?? LOL! mhan there are aloooooooooooooooot of places to travel around. good when playing 20 bots.

oh well! lets not count it, and look at the overall job that was done.
>>>to 2ND coment below:
"If you don't like the whole Idea of the map, don't even coment on it! Don't give "0" when it works, but this map show effort, so don't be a jelous lame!!


DearGraf1k- +and map spoilers
I hate it , when people do hard work and some noobs give it a low rating because they don't like certain kind of a map!!
If he would make a regular size map-> Giant map lovers would say-"it is too crammed!"
If he would make unreal looking map-> Real map lovers would go-"I don't like those skulls, and flying dragon with this wires!"
If he would make real life map(Like I did)-> Unreal and surrelism freaks will go " The gameplay is boring,not enough effort, doesn't play seriously,and so on"
Detail freaks will go-"need polishing,and need to add more"
Minimalists will go-" hey that's too much stuff here and there,too distracting"
or"I don't like that DM map , because I like CTF=CaptureThe:F:a:g: map"
"I hate giant maps , because I love Bombing Run!"
"I don't like the layout, because I like to eat pizza!"

Oh good, giant map...
***falls asleep***


Have any of you played this map? I can see not by the ratings. This map has zero gameplay. Why do we play UT? Tough question for some apparently.

Zero gameplay = zero rating.

OK, I'll give it 1 cause it cured my insomnia...

Even though I hate giant maps and will never play it I'm giving it a 10 because it looks like it's well made and to make up for the idiot who gave it a 0 without playing it.

i swear i was gona become a mapper, befor i read some of the comments people put on these forms about how much a well put together map sux. oh but it's basicly a box, oh but it's a GiantMap, oh but shut the **** up.your getting these MAPS FOR FREE RIGHT!?
people take time out of there lives to post maps that will be torn apart by ingreats.and personally i think some people hop on reviewers **** every time he/she says something they personly dosent like with the map.

no seriously, if i was a reviewer and all the sudden said "i dont like tree's in any of the maps, it lags me down and it's just a cheap way to cover up bad level design" Then on every fourm leading to the map you whould have some ****head saying something negative about the tree's, and give the map a 0. IDIOTS!!!!

....ok im done ranting, now the map. the map kicks some hardcore @$$, i love it when some one gose to get the redemer in the oven and you turn it on =)
clearly this map took awile to make. i enjoyed it

Dear Sicko,

It's loser, not looser.

Don't flame people for not liking the same maps as you,

Ok, this doesnt deserve a 0, but it doesn't deserve a whole lot either. It has reasonable visuals considering what I usually expect from these maps, but as with most "me-little" maps, this one has basically no gameplay. As well, the egg thing is just silly. so I give it points for effort and decent looks, but 0 for gameplay.

Thanks a lot to all for the rating and special thanks to Qualthwar fo his review.

I am really aware that this kind of map split the players in two groups but I hope that all people who like the long-range battle will have fun with this map.

You shouldn't use the map description to rant about user ratings, Klatsche. That's bad style.

I'll never understand why people who disliike a certain style of map continue to feel the need to rate them poorly. It's obvious your opinion is biased to begin with and doesn't help others to decide to D/L it or not.

This map is obviously a 'mini-me' and in that context does what those maps are supposed to do very well. It's fun, fast and wide-open with some originality thrown in, plus it looks and runs great. If you like this type of map, I highly recommend you D/L it.
Score 7.5 rounded up.

Wow! Excellent map. The gamepplay does tend to slow down but if somebody would convert the Strangelove to 2K3, then it would make a bunch of these "i'm small" maps a heck of alot funner. Well that's all i have to say. Good map. :)

I wont rate it and I never will because I know I could never ever like a map which floorplan includes a plain 32,768 x 32,768 units wide square. But if someday a giant brick hits my head and disables my sense for a good floorplan and thus makes me love to play 'me-little' maps, then I would download this one. The screenshots show definitely that the author put some effort in the map.
