Not as terrible as I expected. Kinda imaginative.

Pyro2 on The Quake Grave

Pyro1 showed the potential that Dean had to go on and make some cool maps. Already with his second map, he has created a better, more exciting map!

When you compare the two, the big change and obvious improvement is the overall design and architecture. The 2 maps almost don’t even look like they’re by the same person. There are decorated hallways, big rooms, smaller bridged rooms. Lots of variety. I guess that’s where the map is a bit odd to me. With the use of different sets of textures, it almost feels like 3-4 maps in one. There is no cohesive theme. Maybe that was the point, Since the subtitle is A Smash of Three?

This doesn’t bother me though but what does bother me is enemy placement. Ogres placed where they can’t reach you with their grenades. Long stretches of level with no enemies populating it. By the end there is an overabundance of ammo with no reason to use it because there are no enemies. It’s just odd, as a bigger feeling map like this should have more enemies to take out.

Overall though, the map is good and it’s an improvement over Pyro1!

Played on skill 2.

Not that much interesting in the way of encounters, with a low density of enemies and encounters on a big scale, but it has some nice brushwork and ideas. Also, while it says 0/0 secrets, it has several well done secret areas.

I think it was a pretty fun and good-looking map with some cool unmarked secrets. One of the secrets doesn’t make much sense in single player mode, though, since the map’s pretty much over by that point. I wonder if the author left the secrets unmarked so they wouldn’t trigger during deathmatch or something.

It’d be nice if I could rate this 2.5 but since I can’t, I’ll gladly round it to 3/5.

This map is an improved released over the author’s first with better architecture and lighting displayed throughout the map. I like that the map had a variety of different visual themes within the map which made it unique for its time. However I agree with ArrCee that the level designer needs to improve on enemy placement within the map as different enemies should have been placed for certain situations as using hellknights instead of orges to attack the player as they are moving throughout the level. Also the map needed as much larger ending climatic battle at the end of the map
such as the player having to fight a Shambler at the end of the level instead of a pack of dogs. Overall i would give the map a three out of five rating and say it is worth a quick play through.
