You are a WWII special forces soldier sent to retrieve secret documents from a German safe house deep in the Black Forest of Germany.


This is another individuel project from a student at the SMU Guildhall, that wanted, through this map, learn coding and mapping int COD radiant and to create a small release featuring mission objective in ww2 environment.

Design was a bit disapointing, This map is quite short in term of layout size and feature a not realistic valley place, where a building stay at the back of the valley and doesn't looks like a farm which was entended (no trace of cultivating or cow since the valley is to tiny without no real opening to the rest of the country it's quite unrealistic). Design isn't that bad especially building but lighting is poor (too bright) and the surronding valley is quite to abrupt and look really artificial (like a sort of surrounding wall)... also the surronding barrier seems a little oversize.

Gameplay is simple and not really challenging since there isn't a lot of german present arround the farm. Objective are simple but well put together with an end escape providing a truck with squadron.. after there is a kind of barrier gate that will lead you to a sort of country yard and that's all.

In conclusion: the author is certainly able to handle correctly the editor even if some minor default (lightings) occurs. He certainly could have created something more consequent but it wasn't perhaps the aim. So for a short average experience it isn't that bad.

Playtime : 10 minutes
