Why I have made this thread:
What I would need from you:
Title: (your map title)
Genre: (your map genre)
Creator(s): (who you would like to be credited as)
Thread: (the forum thread for your map)
And if you happen to break that formula, it's no big deal, so long as I can figure out all that information. I will accept any map type, but I reserve the right to play as stupidly as comes naturally, and I reserve the right to turn down maps that require mods if they give me trouble installing them. Most importantly, if your map thread itself has huge problems with it (like an improperly labelled title, a lack of screenshots, or a broken download link) expect me to comment about it in the thread and not rate your map until the problem is fixed.
What you can expect from me:
- Function: Does the map do what it was intended to do? Does the map have gaping flaws? Do the puzzles, challenges, etc. work properly.
- Form: Is the map attractive? Do the aesthetics contribute to an enjoyable experience? Does the map look like it could have been made in survival mode unmodded? (Unless it actually was, and then bonus points for you.)
- Flavor: Does the map have a clear theme? Is the theme consistent through the map? Does the internal goal of the map drive the player?
For some reference as to what is good and bad:
10-20: This is an acceptable map with definite problems; I would not dissuade people from trying the map. These errors should be learned from for future endeavors, though.
20-30: This map is something I would encourage people to try out.
2) A seperate look at the ingenuity and uniqueness of the map.
-Some of the most important characteristics of a map revolve around how much it stands out and breaks new ground. Since the constant waves of new maps consistently copy and obsolete the characteristics of their predecessors, I have decided to seperate these factors into their own scale so as not to compare apples and oranges. I will give a rating out of 5 diamonds ( ) to represent how new and creative the map is. (Alternatively, I will give a to any map that seems to just copy straight from something well known. I hope never to use this option )
3) Detailed explanations for the ratings above.
I will post the review in both this thread and the thread for the map being reviewed.
