    Well, i was hoping for it to be well, something more. The terrain was pretty bland, just an open plain. Its kind of monotonous, is there boss fights? If there arent there should be. Also you should mix it up a bit with different classes rather than just one marine class. It was ok but i personally didnt like it. It has a lot of potential so if you improve terain and vary things more it could be much better. I give it a 3 because it has potential.

    Thank you for the critique/help/suggestions.

    Boss fights - added.
    Multi-Classes - considered, but not added.
    Custom Models - not added. Mainly to keep file size down. After all, this is a mini-game.

    I also need help fixing the memory leaks. If someone can take a look at the triggers and try to fix them a bit, it would be very helpful.

    Well, despite it's leaks and lacks, I for one find this map rather enoyable to kill time with :D
    Especially if you bring a friend or two...
    I'm not saying it will be the TIME OF YOUR LIFE, but it's quick to get in to, and rather fun in the right circumstances. :)

    bounty hunter2's Review on Alien Hordes

    Alien Hordes is an survival type map, where you must survive against the onslaughts of enemy monsters.

    The terrain of the map is bad, empty, repetitive, lacking more dodoad varying, aswell as more textures, and something different then just stones, such as a base perhaps.

    The game lacks heroes, units only make it less challenging and interesting to play.

    The game can tends to lag after some time of playing it, since the creeps mass to a huge amount.

    You lack more different abilities and classes for the units, and the game really isn't challenging since you can reset everything when all of your units die.

    The map isn't much, really, don't expect anything great. Yet I am sure the map will surprise you and prove to be fun, in a strange yet good way. Approved with a 2/5 (Lacking) rating.

    Well, the map is plain. Add a hiding place or something. And some more balanced triggering would do some magic. Add a series of spawns. Waves. Balanced waves. Not just unit-massing.

    Not really that much to do.
