The Basics: This map is the island of Alcatraz and takes place in the prison and on the grounds surrounding the prison.
What We Like: Once you get outside the prison you really begin to appreciate all the detail that this map has and how gorgeous it looks. It is easy to tell that Nukem spent a lot of time and care with the design and layout which goes a long way in my book. Also, the layout of the map seems well balanced and there are places to run trains but it's not super easy so the challenge is always there. Some of the TMG custom drops are really cool too like getting a PAPed gun for a short time that fires tracer rounds. There are also a lot of other custom guns that you can get which adds to the variety. The racing gloves and the prison shank were a nice touch too.
What We Didn't Like: Being inside the prison. I know prisons aren't supposed to pour out every color of the rainbow, but I still couldn't wait to leave and see something else. Bleeding out and then spawning all the way back inside the prison. Also, buying a perk only to realize that I need to keep paying money to keep it powered or else it will deactivate. I already paid you for my freaking perk and you still want a continual flow of my money that I must satisfy by completing annoying fetch quests for fuel!?! You want more perks? Get more fuel. Pretty soon there is going to be one person on your team who's only purpose is to run around and find fuel and refill all the generators to keep your perks online (sound like fun? didn't think so). Also, the insane sprinting zombies from the very beginning. Can we stop pretending that this serves any purpose other than to see how many people that you can get to rage quit within the first 30 seconds? I've had zombies glitch and get caught in walls and even glitch and run away from me. (See HERE)
The Final Word: I know that this map has been in the works for over a year, but it still feels like it could use some more tweaking to work out the kinks. It is fun to run around and appreciate the beauty of the map as well as shooting some of the custom weapons. Also, you may be able to forgive more than I do and if you can you will probably be able to have a good time for a while, just don't let those generators go offline : (
