      Review

      Not bad, tends to be open and has some unique ideas. The details are rich and the visuals are rich, but some areas are too similar. Also not that challenging (I think I have the right to say that as I finished this on Realism Expert), and if you're careful enough, you can find a sopt that isn't covered with nav mesh in the finale.

      No Final

      This is a great map. I have played many times on my server. But now, for some reason, the final will not start. after you answer the radio and it says call me back when you are ready, that's all that happens. 
      .
      .
      I'm sure it's all the updates since this campaign was created. 
      .
      If anyone that can edit maps can fix this, That would be great.

      Really challenging dam campaign.

      I think this is a fun but difficult campaign, especially the last 3 chapters. In the chapter 2, after turning on the switch at the bottom of the dam, there will attract the zombie horde and 2 tanks. In the chapter 3, after calling the elevator, players need to defend against at least 2 waves of zombie horde and a tank. Finale rescue is also difficult but really creative, players need to defend against zombie and reconnect 3 cables in the same time to keep the crane's light on. Although this campaign is really challenging, but also very nice and well-designed, and no glitches in the campaign.^^ Very recommended to play with friends.^^

      Hard and challenging campaign

      First two levels are hard.Finale is very nice and challenging.Can spawn tank anywhere close to you when rescue vehicle arrives.

      Good, but too dam challenging campaign

      The design is excellent, I really like the non-linear approach and revisiting the previously seen areas. This may confuse beginners, and especially if they quit playing halfway through the campaign and try to remember which map was it later. The campaign has no shortage of panic events, they are well supplied, and some have HMGs to help you out, but there's one huge difficulty spike. Tank spam. There actually so many Tanks - and sometimes they come in pairs - that you might start treating them like the normal Special Infected, they're that common. In other words, the number of Tanks IS TOO DAM HIGH. Jokes aside, it is both a fun and challenging campaign, and it looks good.

      Great to see a map which happens in ONE BIG LOCATION

      Pros:
      I love the design that players are going around in a one big location (i.e. the Dam) divided into 4 parts. We can see where we went previously.
      The map is challenging. Have to retry 2-3 times with 2 friends of mine and with the difficulty "Advanced".
      The design of reconnecting the wires is interesting.
      
      Cons:
      A bug (?) happens at the level that players have to switch on the button to lower the ground to get into it. For the first time, tanks appear. But we retried, with everything well prepared, no tanks come out. I think tank is necessary here to give some challenge to players.
      
      A gameplay video is uploaded.

      When i first saw this map called Dam It, i think it's the offcial maps by Turtle Rock Studios. But this map is better than the official maps.

      CHALLENGING, HIGHLY DETAILED AND LONG CAMPAIGN. FINISHED ON EXPERT

      PROS
      - Well balanced for harder difficulties
      - Item placement compensates difficulty
      - Clear where to go
      - Events actually make sense eg/ start elevator, turn on turbines ect
      - Unique finale with the disconnecting cables, however this was quite difficult on expert with only 2 players .. but achievable
      - Bot navigation was good
      - Large wide open spaces
      - Places to explore and find supplies
      - Game instructor hints were very helpful
      
      Such a nice well rounded campaign. Cannot fault it and greatly enjoyed playing.. Highly recommended
      • Thanks :)

      Pros:

      -- Awesome atmosphere on several areas, especially when you come out of the tunnels after turning the power back on.
      
      -- Some events that actually PLAYED differently from others I've played before, in addition to having different triggers.
      
      -- Well-realized interiors. I like how you can see several of the safe rooms before you can get into them.
      
      -- Cool scripted events. 

      Cons:

      -- The holdout right BEFORE the finale is insanely difficult. Eventually I just started at the finale
      
      -- Lots of large areas that really s t r e c h the capabilities of the game.

      Conclusion:

      Really didn't have any trouble with the campaign, aside from one stickly event and having to run in slideshow mode at times. Lots of neat areas.

      Pros:

      Survivor voice cues were well done
      Outdoor areas looked lovely 
      Easy enough to find the way around
      Looping map layout was a neat idea, and nicely executed 
      Survivor zombies, cop zombies, and CEDA employees were used well
      Bot nav was good
      Supplies are better
      SI spawning is better
      No bugged areas for CI spotted

      Cons:

      Map layout overall was mediocre 
      Minor FPS drops and ping spikes throughout all chapters, especially during events
      No ammo in 2nd/3rd safe room
      1st chapter forest layout wasn't very good- sloping forest areas with little visibility meant it was hard to defend from
      First gauntlet was a bit early, considering it was near the start of the map; it also ended in a bottleneck space which was tricky
      1st chapter had a boss infected near the beginning and 2 events total- probably too much
      2nd chapter event had horde + 2 tanks with little maneuvering room
      3rd chapter had a few areas of massive CI spawning very close (behind a nearby closed door or corner, etc)
      3rd chapter event had no camping spots + horde + tank
      Finale had no camping spots, we had to use a glitched out spot (on top of army tank near helipad)

      Conclusion:

      Updated review for 10/05 version
      
       Pretty decent map. The atmosphere was very well done and the scenery looked excellent. There were some nice details included like voice cues and survivor zombies, and it looked like a lot of the bugs from the previous version were fixed. 
      
      There were some lag problems here and there - event ping spikes seen across 3 different servers, 2 official and 1 local- but these weren't too bad, and overall there weren't too many glitches. The worst part were the layout of the events, which were pretty unimpressive and were entirely based on luck due to the lack of camping spots, room to navigate, etc. 
      
      It's a nice theme, and very well done. The dam looks awful pretty and is cool to play around. Good map

      genius use of texture
      good use of space

      Pros:

      Nice atmosphere, good level of challenge.
      Supplies are now  very abundant.
      Similar to the classic map - but extended, revised.
      Fun to play!
      Playable on single player - no detected glitches.

      Cons:

      There might have been too many ammo drops - but hardly a complaint.

      Conclusion:

      Dam It 2 was always one of my favorite campaigns, yet the prior difficulty of the finale had been frustrating.  All those old woes are gone, and the new campaign captures all that was good about the original, and makes it a lot more fun to play.  Don't know about perfect scores - far too many "10s" are given on this website, but this is pretty damn close.  Nice job re-editing and polishing a classic map.

      Pros:

      +Well designed campaign. The dam exterior itself looks great. Added with scenic environmental cycle and the interior details, this campaign feels good.
      +Bot navs are great. Better than previous version.
      +Adequate amount of weaponry and supplies. They're scattered around along the campaign. Good way to make players explore.
      +Pretty challenging, especially the finale.
      +The survivor dialogues are pretty neat.
      +Good Infected and SI spawning.
      +Cool crescendo event, the plane crash in the finale is cool too.
      +Finale is a blast. Makes players wonder where will the heli will pick up.

      Cons:

      -Well its kind of short for a cool campaign like this, no big deal though.
      -In finale, Tank sometimes spawn under the dam area and eventually kills itself. Rarely happen though.
      -Yeah, the bots don't pick supplies in final map. Especially health kits.
      -Finale SI only spawns two or three type of them. It's random with every gameplay but most notable are Charger, Spitter and Jockey.

      Conclusion:

      Overall, a cool and creative campaign that satisfies both design and gameplay. Worth the play and effort put in creating this campaign. Nice job, author. All the best on upcoming projects, if any of ocurse.
