Map Review of 5-ways-to-die

Sorry, we couldn't find any images attached to this page.

The idea behind this map is not very good. You have a series of five binary choices (left or right) and choosing wrong kills you. The map description is accurate, it's pure luck, unless you go left, left, right, left, right, then you've cheated to the end. The puzzle at the end is throwing a grenade at Barney.

Overall, I didn't like it. Living or dying is arbitrary and the final puzzle is finding a way to detonate explosives, something Half-life and Sven players should know how to do at this point. The map ends after that and I ended up in the campaign portal so fast my head was spinning.


  • At least the deaths were all different, there could have just been an invisible hurt trigger instead


  • Five sixths of the map is pure guesswork, unless you're my teammate and guess all of them correct in a row
  • I can't believe tripping a trip mine is the last puzzle
  • The whole map flew by so fast and so little of it was interesting.
Score: 2 / 10
