Pros:

Original ideas
Good object's aranjament's on the map

Cons:

It's too easy
Appears alot of ERROR banner's, and once I bugge myself in a building. I don't know if it's from map or from me, but I needed to rr the map campaign (map 3 I guess)
Too easy, alot of wep bullet's spots, and other items. It will be harder with a little less "save points"

Conclusion:

Nice, but could be better.

Pros:

- Lots of original ideas.
- The Castle
- Lovely map 4

Cons:

- Found finale too easy
- Laggs coming from map 3 (I don't know if they're caused by the campaign)

Conclusion:

All in all, I have been playing this campaign for 2 years and I never get rid of it. However, I think some small changes would make it amazing like making finale a bit more difficult (Maybe 2 Tanks Spawning? Dunno) I just wanted to give you some ideas with this review. Good Job.
