[19/40] Kri - Welcome to Nostalgia!

« on: March 05, 2016, 08:24:03 am »
Welcome to Kri, the second map by SacredSlayer. Or should I say, welcome to nostalgia boys!!!!
Let me start of by saying I really did have a ton of fun playing this map. I know it's not the biggest map to ever hit UGX mods, but I do believe it deserves some credit. Now, maybe it's just me but I get a huge feeling of nostalgia every time I play this, it really hits me with that classic zombies feel. But this map lacks in a couple MAJOR features that take little to absolutely no time to add in now a days. For example it only has the WAW perks and no solo quick revive, which could have easily been fixed with Script Placer Z in a matter of seconds. Although he did have a double PAP and a couple of MP weapons added in I really think the lack of custom features hurt this map big time. Also the WAW gun's stats were edited to make them a little different. Although they were OK at the beginning, they got boring after a little while. This map did have a buy-able ending that added a bit of a more "custom feel' to the map, but that and the double PAP were the only custom things I found in here. I didn't see any custom textures or models or anything like that so it is pretty standard in that sense.

Next, fun scale. This map was surprisingly pretty fun for WAW assets only. I had a pretty good time with friends and not as much solo, but still was fun solo nevertheless. This map can have it's moments where it is just boring and you really aren't feeling it for this map but the double PAP really keeps it fun and helps you keep going. Also this map is SUPER SMALL. I mean smaller then NDU small, and no super good areas to train and only a few to camp make this map a decent challenge solo. Co-Op it's fairly easier but still a challenge to the inexperienced players out there. The double PAP does help to make it a tad easier, but on the late 20s early 30s it gets to be a super challenge.

And Next, level of detail. This map has some decent detail, defiantly not Treyarch level detail, but you can tell the mapper spent at least a little time making this map look good. The lighting is very well done and there is some cool models, decals, crap laying on the ground, etc. in the map. The detail could get better, but overall it's pretty solid. Here is a couple pics from inside the map showing you some detail

And Finally, Replayability. This map does have some things that add to it's replayability, like the double PAP, but the most replayability from this map comes from it's nostalgia. It really brings me back to the old custom zombies days and gives me that feeling of "classic zombies". I feel like the replayability would have gone up if the mapper added some more perks in (at least solo quick revive), but im defiantly going to be playing this map quite a few more times before im done with it.

So, the final tally is:
Level of Detail: 5/10
Custom Content: 4/10
Fun Scale: 5/10
Replayability: 5/10

Overall Score:19/40

Final notes: Although this map scored pretty low, it still is a fun map and deserves to be played. I had the most fun Co-Op and appreciate the time the mapper put into the map. Defiantly recommend you guy's try it out and show the map and it's maker some love ;)

Pretty good, but personally I think the detail is worth more than a 5.

Thank you for your review!

To quickly address a few points you made, not having custom textures, more perks, black ops solo revive, those aren't really my thing. My main purpose for this map was to be solely WaW and very few if any custom assets. I could have very easily put them in, but for this map, that was not my goal. (And i did also make this map in about a month and a half while working and going to school, completely besides the point however.)

I do plan on releasing a Redux version of this map in the future with some of the features you mentioned above, larger, custom weapons, more detail etc.

I'm glad you enjoyed playing it and I hope you enjoy the next map I release! :)

BO1 perks/guns etc. I can understand. But deliberately keeping the totally useless on solo WAW QR?! That's just pure nonsense.

Like i said before, not really my cup of tea.
