Hi guys

I was checking the reviews page to see what I should download and play, but I noticed that my map pack (Unreal Forgotten) has now been re-classified as a Large campaign, it was previously classified as a small campaign.

Despite numerous now being much larger than the original review I think this should still be considered small, comparing to the same lenght as "Attacked" etc. It's definatly not as big as Déjà Vu.

Zora Episodes are also small campaigns, not single maps.
Final Worlds maps can be completed in less than a hour too so it's not "large".

I've been wanting to bring this up for a while too. It just seems that some releases are placed in the wrong reviewing classes. I know that I reviewed Zora's Episodes as if they were small campaigns and there are packs out there that are as long as Xidia but are listed as small as well. Obviously there's more than map count to consider for what category the packs go into, but there is a kind of mismatch in a few cases. The Zora one especially, I dunno why those are where they are.

EDIT: I know I even referenced Strangeworld being large for a "small" campaign in the review (kind of an oxymoron on my part) but I believe it would be justified as a large campaign. Eight maps, new weapons, ect. I kind of feel also that my review depicts it more as such anyways.

I kind of remember there being Large, Medium and Small Campaigns. Forgotten and Attacked would be Medium sized campaigns (whereas ONP, Xidia Gold, 7B, Deja VU and probably Nali Chronicles and Spacial Fear (Legacy also?) classify as Large campaigns.
I think making a distinction between Large, Medium, Small and single map campaign is defendable.

Xenome as it stands would be Medium but hopefully turns out to be Large (*calling jazzy for some update info*)

Err, just better keep Large, Medium and Single as always, since the beginning.
Xenome, Legacy and Zephon do fall in Large.

Ow, I had forgotten about Zephon. (and Legacy I didn't know because I never finished the damn thing). Xenome: First Day? ok, 10 maps, you're probably right, it's large.
Unreality :? Large (quantity, not quality :wink: )

Legacy has also completely new equipment and new enemies. Xenome and Zephon are long, and Unreality... it does end before you expect it if you play the thing on Easy and be super-skilled against the bots.

Good catch. I will move the maps around a bit when I get the chance. Lately I didn't get the opportunity to continue on UnrealSP development (like the new backend), but I will try to make some time for it.
