Zebba Farms was made by the mapper [ZCT]Chaos who also created Nazi Zombie 420 as well as Dollhouse 1 & 2, he also seems to have an affinity for seeing teddy bears get shot in the face.

Setting:  This map takes place on a farm in the middle of a giant corn field probably in Kansas if I had to guess. The only buildings that you can go into are a general store and a barn that you must unlock by giving 4 teddy bears each a lead sandwich. From there you have access to the power switch as well as the ability to open an underground tunnel system.

Positives: The map looks amazing, like something straight out of a movie. I wanted to make a crawler just to walk around and look at things, it's that good. It also has a few custom features mainly the UGX Standalone Mod which adds a tremendous amount of value to it given that you can take advantage of the different game modes and have a legitimate reason to play it over and over again. The Wizard of Oz custom UGX loading screen was a nice touch as well.

Negatives: It is a small/medium sized map but for survival purposes you're going to want to stay above ground and out of the buildings which cuts out half of the already small playable area as far as space you will utilized during rounds. This turns the map into an excercise in perfecting your circle strategy running ability. The easter egg to get to the buyable ending could have been longer and you really wish that there was more to do on such a good looking map. Also, being able to buy most, if not all, of the weapons off the wall made the mystery box pointless which was a real bummer.

Conclusion: This map swung for the fences and has a lot going for it, but just came up short on content and real estate. If there would have been a few more buildings and places to explore it would have been a great map instead of just a really good one. Will I play it again? Yes, the gun game and sharpshooter are calling me right now.

Great review. I got the chance to play it for the first time yesterday and I was pretty impressed with the appearance of the map. It's definitely the best map from Chaos to date as far as looks :)

Great review. I will say one thing though. I definitely think this map goes from a 6, to a 10/10 on replayability, JUST because of how fun Gun Game is on this map. Not entirely sure why it was rewarded a 6 (maybe only based off survival?) but other than that, I couldn't agree more. Excellent job Chaos, this map is a ton of fun.

I think the only thing that hurt replayability for me was the size of the map. Gungame can be found on multiple maps so I don't think it should have a super heavy weight in that category either. I agree it could be a 7/10 but probably not much higher in my opinion. Great map through, as you said :) Looking forward to part II.

I'm with you, the reviewer is a douchebag.

ha! sorry, I suppose that did come off a bit douche-y. I only meant to add to the review, not take away from yours. :)
