    Balance: Actually i havent played it on a full server yet, since my css always crashes after 20mins. But of what i have seen it is fairly balanced. Design: Uhm Design. I think there is absolutley nothing to criticise on that. I just love it. Even if it has mistakes (i have not seen) it would be pure awesomeness. Detail: It is actually a bit blocky at some points, but i guess thats just how it is. Blocky world huh. Fun: Getting a headshot and failing de_boston is fun. its fun playing on such a realistic map. Makes the game worth playing. Gameplay/Teamplay: The layout of this map allows some really good strategies in your team (in all areas). Really well thought threw. Looks/Realism: Well it's based on Boston and it looks like Boston. What else is there to say? Cons: Like i already said a bit blocky at some points but i dont know if that is really a con. Also i think the Firepole is wierd... Never seen someone climb up one :p Improvements: See con's. Maybe find a solution with the firepole. Make a staircase nearby or something. Notes: all in all one of the best realistic and well playable maps i have seen so far. Favourite² I am also impressed how you worked over 2 Years to realize your idea. I would of lost the interest. Keep it up ! Love your work !

    Really nice job, I would check it out more, but I am very tired, and I want to go to bed now. Love all the detail, and effort put into releasing the map. Keep up the great work, and I hope to see some more submissions from you.
