A simple boss map, although it does the job and the visuals were impressive at the time of release, but it feels pretty lacking in a sense of place now. The Titan fight would actually be pretty interesting with the hiding spots removed (I forgot them the first time I replayed the map which made this stick out); you are stuck in quite an open area with a Titan advancing and pretty much the only way to get cover is to get around it. In that context even the lower health here would make sense, as a short but tense encounter. Unfortunately the hiding spots make that irrelevant and turns it into a standard AI exploit fight unless you avoid them on purpose.

I'd like to comment on this before the end. A map part of my "childhood". Somehow I always ended picking up this one for quick testings regarding MCoop and classic mods such as Aura etc...
And of course, lovely Newmca13.
I love Darkside.

DAMN HOW I MISS THE OLD DAYS.
