    Pros: At least it's not gray.
    Cons: Admittedly, I never made out of the first level of this map. It's nearly impossible to find teammates for this map and playing it alone equals certain death. It's dark and it's green. There are random hordes of aliens. There's no clear direction. There's massive trees that block your view through most of the map. If there's ammo or items spread through the map, I didn't find any.
    Improvements: I left all of your ratings at 5 with the exception of Design, Detail, Fun and Looks. In these areas I gave you a 2. Starting with Design, most of the map is just the same green texture and a bunch of trees. There's nothing unique about any area. There was no real rhyme or reason to hordes of aliens. There was no clear direction and it's easy to get lost. In Detail, while the green is unique from all the gray maps, it is way overdone. There is a limit of dark and gray before it's just irritating that you can't see anything (and the trees don't help that) and that really, every area looks exactly the same. In Fun, if this was a rating for "Frustrating", you would have gotten a 10. And finally, in Looks which is kind of redundant considering design and detail, but really, finding something unique and then doing it over and over makes it no better than a bunch of gray rooms (probably worse actually considering how dark it is).
    Notes: If you fix the green dark area with no direction, I'm always happy to give a map another try. I realize most maps (if not all) are works in progress. So let me know when you update it, and I'll give it another go and a new review. BTW, you're last 3 screenshots look fantastic.... now if only I could have found those areas.....
