Nobody plays this these days, which is sad because it can be really good fun.
Why don't they play it?
Because it requires co-op.
Well, not just that - the worst problem of the map's design is punishing players who die by making them sit out in detention whilst all the other kids are out in the field playing football (almost literally).
On the few occasions I have seen it played on public, invariably people who die and find themselves trapped with the giant red space-willy and an unending horde of respawning monsters simply leave the server for a better time elsewhere - the giant space-willy thing gets quickly destroyed and the map ends, everyone loses. Who can blame them? It's a terrible idea.
I made a simple ripent tweak to disable the monster spawning at the beginning, so that everyone can do the fun stuff and I play this very regularly with friends and we always have a blast. The grappling is epic, and the combat can be quite challenging - especially at the end with the turbo-sniping-bodygaurds and the pit-falls & garg pursuits.
So +8 for the grappling, -5 for the dead-players-get-stuck-in-detention gag.
(There's also a secret room in it - not all the walls are solid..)
