^Nice find, man  :)
Spent some 40 minutes with this one.
A challenging map it is. Especially when it picks up towards the end.

An island city.

Duke finds himself shipwrecked on an isolated portion of a city and must discover the source of all the aliens. The island and collection of skyscrapers takes up a couple blocks of real-estate and is lain out in one large loop. Along with the beach, alleys, and main street, the level consists primarily of three main buildings; an office high-rise, another that's under construction, and the third that's being renovated by the aliens into an ant-nest entrance covering an extensive underground lair.
The atmosphere is done fairly well and can draw the player in. Some locations are a bit sparse with detailing, and the outdoor areas suffer from lack of shading, but the texturing and architecture are done nicely and there are some applications of lighting and sound effects. The most immersive area of the map is the hive section which seems to have been the authors primary focus for the single player specific portion of the map. This area has the highest concentration of effects, texturing combinations, palette usage, and sector work.
Game play is mostly about wandering around collecting weapons and supplies, then shooting everything. A few keycards and some wall cracks were added in to provide direction and progress achievements, followed up by more healthy doses of alien murder thickly applied to cover up those distractions. More fun than smoking a cigar at a gas pump.

Overall I'd give it an 87

The Alien City
Mark Weagel

A city styled map.

A pretty nice medium sized piece of a town consisting of a couple alleyways, a bar, and a storage warehouse. The shading, texturing, and detailing are done in a nice traditional 3DR style. Ambience is capped off with ample lighting and sound effects. The only design issue is that a few rooms and corridors can be pretty cramped and hard to get around in, which is only troublesome when engaging with enemies.
Game play involves finding key cards, shooting the hordes of aliens, and wall cracks. Lots and lots of wall cracks. Just about every fourth wall has a crack in it. Some create shortcuts, others lead to stashes, some are just there for the hell of it. The flow of the map is quite smooth up until the red key-locked room. For some reason the author decided to put a required switch in a secret room in order to access the yellow key. The view screen in that red-locked room doesn't provide much of a clue, other than the secret room is probably hidden somewhere in the crate-filled alley near the red-locked door. This ruins progress in an otherwise nicely done level. More fun than breaking your mother's back.

Overall I'd give it an 84

An underground military styled bunker. It's pretty large, so the more Dukematch players, the better.

A skyscraper rooftop Dukematch. Space and mobility might be an issue with more than 4 players. There's room, but the layout might be prohibitive.

A street with a few shops and a subway-like track around its exterior perimeter. It's not very big so it's probably best for around 4 players.

City at War

A city level. You can go in and out of buildings, plenty of weapons and ammo, lots of sniper spots, and enough RPG's for a blood fest.

There's a typo in the review, like, 85 should surely be something, like, 98. Or 99. O' like 100. But seriously, thnx for review.
