I don't know if any of the regulars here remember, but way back around 2000-2003 I had a web site called "Lightning SP Reviews", hosted on good ol' Geocities. Back then, I did very short reviews of over a hundred maps with scores and all. Today, I was browsing through my Unreal file archives that I've had for years - and low and beyond - I found a text document containing all those reviews! Of course, they are incredibly outdated now, and my writing was absolutely atrocious back then (I was about 16-17 when I started that web site; now I am 33). However, I thought someone might get a kick out of them.

These reviews definitely rate the maps far too high compared to today's standards, but they were written back before modern packs like ONP were even released. The best packs back then were classics like Hexephet, Illhaven, Shrakitha, etc... However, these reviews still give you an idea of what might be worth checking out from all the old maps floating around out there. Who knows, you might even find a hidden gem or two!

Anyway, Here is the text document containing all the reviews. If anyone is looking for old hidden gems, give it a quick glance!

Most of the maps mentioned in those reviews can be found in the OldUnreal Archives.
Unreal SP Map Archive: http://www.oldunreal.com/maps/single/
UT SP Map Archive: http://www.oldunreal.com/maps/utsingle/

Some of these maps are not even at OldUnreal, but I have them all on an external HD. If someone reads about a map in the document they can't find, let me know and I can upload it!

How about placing them all in a single .zip? So it gets easier to follow the maps with the reviews. That would be fun.

The first one I wanted to try (bar.zip) already wasn't in the archives.

I guess I could place all the archives in a zip file. That would be around 300mb+, but that should not be an issue for Mediafire...

Mega.co.nz is also an option.

Well, I have a registered account at MediaFire, so unless the web site shuts down - the files will always remain available (I have files there going back to 2013). I am not sure how long a site like mega will keep the files before they are auto-deleted.

I just need some time here to compile all the maps.

I also have files on Mega from 2013, I'd say it's a good bet.
