dunno. what if he doesn't want it to be reviewed. (same issue with anybody else suggesting someone else's map for a review.)
anyway, I hated the movie, but really liked the playstation game. has it got something to do with the dreamworks thing at all?

that's so cheaply low, it's almost insulting.
I'll drop david a mail one of these days asking him if he'd mind.

it sucks when you wanna play serious

we played it on a lan with 4 ppl....spamfest mode....that was fun
but only for 2matches
well
at least 1000times better than kitchen, bathroom and all the crap with too big open spaces....that just sucks in terms of gameplay

i had to use that wallpaper
you cant use a normal wallpaper in this engine

the engines lighting sucks too much
or instead you could use a 1024x1024 texture... :|
so i used the 'ghey' leopard one

i hate the "me tiny... room big" maps... they are all visually agonizing and flow like a cinder block in a tar river. HOWEVER... DavidM's smallsoldiers is visually impressive... ive DL this map along time ago... i hated it becasue it was a BigRoom style map but damn if he doesnt raise the bar about a million yards for all those lame ass bigroom maps...

Visually the maps attention to detail is mind boggling. The Author left no stone unturned...

Gameplay-wise i'd suggest no more than 2 players for this sick-small twister. they layout is original yet tried and true, space on ground, platform, bridges, all that jazz... but he incorporated it all into the Bedroom map. Unlike the other maps of this style you dont find a strange ramp somewhere and think... Hmmm, i dont have a ramp likethis in my room.... or... what the hell is this trampoline supposed to be???

but it still sux cuz its a bedroom map... :P
but youre alright kiddo!!
