Archive has been placed on-line to house the collected sum
total of Quake and Quake2 Custom Deathmatch Map Reviews I wrote during the
period of September 14th, 1997 through April 20th, 1999 including 7 pieces for
PQ Level Of The Week. This Archive also contains the series of in-depth Quake
Bot reviews, articles and interviews crafted by Meanstryk.
Reviews are grouped under their respective subject
headings in the fold-out menu to the left. Each Author section will display a
list of their maps I have reviewed here, the original "teasers",
author's e-mail and site links, map download link and a link to the Full
Review. Bot Reviews contain download links (Bot name in bold text) for their
respective Bots and the author's e-mail link. I've also included a Bot Download
section for you to grab the most popular Bots for Q1 and Q2 to use with any of
the maps you find here. Articles is where you'll find interviews and essays.
About is just that....2 PQ Spotlights on Ramshackle, a short FAQ covering
popular user questions and instructions for using Q1 and Q2 maps you find here.
Legal lists copyright and credits information for those who might like to use
material from this site and how to go about it....the right way.
For those of
you who are new to Ramshackle: "100 reviews is not that
many" you say? Perhaps not when compared to the "super-review"
sites. There are three distinct differences to note. Each map
review is based upon many hours of playtesting scenarios by a crew of
humans....not bots. Each review is a thorough and in-depth
examination of each piece from top to bottom so you won't need a
"score". Each map Reviewed and linked for download
is keeper as well as a milestone in the Deathmatch Map author's craft and
commitment to the genre and it's fans. I hope you enjoy reading these pieces. I
appreciate having had the opportunity of presenting these maps to you.
