    Metro v2
    Created By: Paulie Walnuttz
    Gametypes Supported: One flag, One bomb, Territories, Slayer, Infection
    Recommended Players: 6 - 8

    Perfectly capturing the theme of an Urban environment, Paulie Walnuttz greets the front page with Metro v2, an asymmetrical construction environment with numerous original traits to separate it from many Forged creations we see today. Combining exciting team oriented game play and a numerous amount of aesthetic pieces found only in Metro v2, Paulie has certainly put forth a tedious amount of work to update the original Metro to what it is today.

    The map consists of 3 main areas; the Attackers base, a 3 storied Defending building that includes a bridged connection with the town's Clocktower, and a bridge currently being put together by the use of the crane; another original aesthetic piece in which Paulie has incorporated into his map. If you're in liking of clean geometry, an ingenious layout, and a surprising competitive game play not unlike what you would find from Cosmic Rick's "Kentucky Tango" - this map is for you.

    Omg this map looks amazing, a must DL just from the pictures! I'm going to test this tonight and get a review in the morning! Sorry for not having a review on this post yet but I have not been able to get a game(of people willing to play non-infection) yet. But, did a foregthrough adn saw that the playablity would be okay and the aestetics are awsome.

    I remember seeing this a while ago. To be honest I wasn't that impressed by it, aside from the clock.
    That's just uber cool.
    =P
    The hell?

    amazing map. I remember playtesting v1 (out of FH with friends) and the spawns were terrible. This map has improved tremendously over the time, and has now, evidently, been featured!

    Congratulation Paulie Walnutz, you really deserved it!

    I've played swat on this once before. And I just remember thinking "what!? this hasn't been featured!?" That clocktower is seriously some of the best telewriting I've seen. The center structure and crane are also two perfect examples of great aesthetics.

    I also found the gameplay to be very enjoyable (even though I only played SWAT on it). The feeling of walking through an actual city-like landscape doesn't hinder the playability at all. There is not lack of cover or flow of players throughout the map at all.

    Congrats on this feature. It is well deserved. Not many maps have this type of balance between aeshtetics and gameplay.

    Well done Paulie. I was a big fan of Metro v1, it remained on my HD until v2 was released. I became very restless when attempting to obtain v2 as I went to download it as Live was down.

    Clocktower was amazing, the Crane was ingeniously awesome, the house was very well constructed(as usual). Overall there were no negative features in this map.

    I loved this map, every bit of it. It's diversity and size are unmatched in any other map. This is a truely original map and in my opinion it is the greatest urban map to date. Far better Berkneck, or whatever it's called, made by that Dom guy. lol, Jay kay Dom. I loved Breakneck but Metro is more my style of map.


    Well done Paulie, one of the maps recently I would've paraded for it to hit the home page. One of my favourite maps in some time, nice job Paulie. A very well deserving feature.

    I remember playing this map a month ago, it was really good. This took very long to get feature though, amazing still.

    hey paulie~ NYC forgers FTW!!! great map there is a lot of open space which i think is one of this maps only problems. if you have the sniper you have veiw of the entire map.me dun like that. also it is really awkward jumping the roofs. not your fault, its the stupid effin soft barier. The map iself is beautiful and the clock tower genius. the gameplay is incredible all around and my favorite has to be a one-flag game i played with Zombie. It was effin insane. anyway great job and i hope to see another feature from you.

    BTW did you model this on the FDR drive?

    And Murdock its pm...he lives in NYC. the city that never sleeps.
