Anslem is a classic map based upon a majestic temple or castle enclosed in a large outdoor area.
It fully takes advantage of single player mode, but also offering all mutliplayer modes for a Coop / Deathmatch experience, despite being a tad bit larger for this purpose.

One could recognize the style of the author for the wilderness environment - in the same vein as Aztec - and its classic architecture which don't disappoint at all.
The game is a key card hunt cleverly hidden in a non-linear layout allowing a free exploration of this impressive building and its surroundings - generously infested by the vermin. This aspect brings undeniably a replay value and I would expect nothing more from a good map.
Texturing is on average - maybe somewhat repetitive and monotonous - lighting-shading is appreciable. Overall, everything has been carefully designed.
A well-known large and enjoyable old map.
