    Personally I love the asymmetrical level designs and objectives. It’s a breath of fresh air from the usual mirror-maps in most shooter and knowing one side is going to have an uphill battle on its hands in sime maps is another unique aspect.

    Agreed about the SMART system though. Not enough terrain actually makes use of it, and places where it should work just don’t and the end result has been players moving around in a map as usual, rather than parkouring around as originally envisioned.
