    Maybe?

    Ok played without bugs, short with a tough helicopter ending, very basic design

    Maybe?

    Yup, what mel said. Competent beginner map pack. Could have had more enemies in the end sequence to make it really tough. 10-20 mins play.

    Single map, no readme :/
    I couldn’t hear a spawning sound for a spawned alien slave.
    The length and design is poor, it’s very short (under 5 minutes) and boxy, odd and undetailed textures and layouts. The last section, a large outdoor area is cool though.
    What I like is the architecture of some rooms just as the mentioned outdoor area with containers and crates everywhere, incl. a nice fight.
    Balancing is very good here too.
    However, many things are missing to make it better so only real fans should play it.

    When you play some maps, you just don’t need to read the text file to know that it’s a first-time attempt at mapping. Hostage is a perfect example of what not to release if you’re a mapper.

    This pack consists only of one map, and no background story is supplied. One may infer from the title that you have been captured and must escape. Indeed, you start seemingly as a prisoner in a room, then must fight your way out. Try not to notice how bland the map is along the way.

    As with many first-time maps, Hostage sports extremely basic architecture, complete lack of detail, questionable texturing, and linear gameplay.
