Area27, circa 14 June 2010, by Cody "Supertanker" Jackson

A large industrial/base styled map. The author sticks to his mold and creates a large, linear, even flowing level. There are a few places where one may get turned around a bit after climbing about in air ducts, but you'll never wander too far off the beaten path. If you pay attention to the doors and corridors as you pass by them the view screens will point you in the right direction, so getting lost isn't a major an issue. As per par on his previous maps, the author provides you with just enough health to get by and maybe a few extra rounds in your clip to make sure that trooper isn't getting up. The flow of the map is as even as the reflection on a mountain lake during a calm autumn morning. Almost tedious due to the redundancy because of the limited weapon selection and limited variety of aliens. There are several different aliens to be encountered, but the amount of troopers Duke has to burn through before encountering an enforcer almost makes you want to run up and hug it before you put a bullet through it's brain. The level is so even throughout, if it wasn't for the outdoor scenery at the end, you might not have even known you'd reached the finish. The map is made up soley of corridors and rooms with a few air ducts tossed in. Amazingly, the effective use of lighting and different textures for each area are quite successful in breaking up what could have been a very monotonous map. The air ducts can get on one's nerves, but they're limited to mainly one section of the map. Don't expect any major architectural wonders, but the level is fairly well detailed throughout, each area has its own specific design, and there are a few pieces of eye candy added in. Overall the design is straight forward, and the change-up in the look of each area, with a few tossed in places that peer outside at the surrounding landscape, keeps the map from getting dull and gives it a "Logan's Run" feel. The limited puzzles and consistency of the combat makes game play a walk in the park (If you walk through the park shooting everyone's dog).

Important Notes        : This map may be reproduced in its original format
			 (And by 'original format' I mean 'the unmodified
			 zipfile') in any media that now exists (the Internet, 
			 DVDs, carrier pidgeon, etched stone tablets) or will 
			 exist in the future (Infonet, IPv6 Internet, UberLazarDisk,
			 StarFleet Databanks) as long as all files are unmodified, 
			 credit is given to the original author (Supertanker), 
			 and there is no charge or fee beyond reasonable distribution
			 fees (The cost of a CD-R, bandwidth, packaging, or distribution media). 
			 Commercial use of this level (Say, in a total conversion that is 
			 'commercial' and costs well more than the cost of the distribution media)
			 is prohibited. After all, I put all the sweat into this level, not you,
			 and I am certainly not getting paid for it or for distributing it.

			 Although I'd prefer you didn't, you may use this level as a
			 base for a new level (As long as it is released under the same 
			 terms as dictated above), so long as credit is clearly given to 
			 the original author (Cody "Supertanker" Jackson) for designing the base map.
