Originally Part of the CBPM3 Vol 2 Pack
A derelict and deserted sea side haven. Arean was once a place of happiness and laughter, now only death and pay to view ticket sales are found here.
Good, fast paced traditional CTF style. From the centre courtyard two paths per side lead out to the flags. These two paths split again and re-merge in a hardcore fashion. The flag room is more a flag ledge. This adds to the flow and favours defending as there’s no sneaky back way in. You’ll need a co-ordinated attack strategy to own this map.
The bots handle the map well and cover all areas. They do a good job of covering when on a flag run. Playercount says 6 to 12. I found less than 8 to be too quiet. They give a good tough game with quick flag caps that will keep you on your toes.
Performance 27/30 (Hardware)
Pretty good throughout frequently above 40 and rarely dropping below 35. Nicely optimised and smooth.
Eye Candy 22/25
You can almost smell the grime and desolation. There are custom textures and meshes here but they aren’t immediately apparent. If you’re going for a completely fresh look, you won’t find it here. What is here is beautiful and realistic.
The lighting is just right giving the atmosphere a heavy dose of realism. One of the best looking maps you’ll see to date.
The Details 15/15
Screenshot, music, story are all here; full marks.
Final Score 91/100
A very nice map and a great CTF map as well. If you’ve been hankering for some oldskool CTF style fragging then look no further.
