      Okay

      This campaign shows an incorrect impression of China - the author thought China is still the same as dozens of years ago, but I believe that he means no harm. So let's review the campaign itself rapidly now. The details are the best in the China contest, but is a little pale in comparision today. The design is okay though it's simple, but still much weaker than Fall in Death, another campaign by the author. The balance, especially in the finale, is also controversial. There're few issues and enjoyable ideas, anyway.

      杰作,个人非常喜欢的图,一开始在飞机上十分有创意,后面氛围也相当到位,救援关别具匠心,就是太滑了哈哈

      Solid Campaign

      There's a lot of creativity and innovation in this map. Not all of it is executed well, but I can still appreciate the thought behind it
      
      The first chapter has you trapped in an airplane, and you have to find 4 parachutes and exit through the escape door. I was slightly disappointed that we didn't actually get to jump out of the plane, but instead immediately transition to a loading screen. It was still a fresh idea though, as I've never played an airplane level in L4D
      
      The second chapter has you walking on the path of the Great Wall. There's a lot of patriotism and Communist imagery throughout, which fit the theme of this campaign well. Unfortunately, navigating the Great Wall can be frustrating as it's easy to get lost, with all of the barricades blocking off your path. You have to follow the orange arrows to know where to go. Once you know where you're going though, you have to destroy down barricade with fireworks which triggers a gauntlet on the that leads to the saferoom, which is a lot of fun
      
      The finale has you free a boat trapped by ice with fireworks, and use that boat as your escape vehicle. It is really hard to do on Expert without human players and teamwork, but it is a neat idea nonetheless. However, I think it was there was missed opportunity to instead use the Chinese fireworks to make a grand lightshow that signals an escape chopper, similar to Dark Carnival.
      
      Overall, the creators of this campaign put a lot of love into this map and I think you should give it a go.

      Inconsistent as hell

      1st part in the airplane was great. however, the second part was very inconsistent. my first point: there is a lack of directions and you wander around for 20 minutes searching for a door, only to be met with 10 dead ends. when you finally find the arrows you follow them, only to be met with more dead ends and more lack of directions!

      Beautiful, but short, but long, but...

      While it at first seems it is a short three-map campaign, in reality it would take much longer to complete due to a number of factors. The first map requires you to find four randomly placed parachutes (some of which may be somewhat well hidden). The second map has some randomly blocked paths, somewhat increasing replayability and dragging you for more Great Wall runs. And that Gauntlet, oh my. The finale has a frictionless ice you need to melt, all the while being attacked by hordes and Tanks. And gods save you if you take too long. The atmosphere of the cold, deserted Great Wall is great, however, even though I generally like more lit maps.

      very good - unique ideas - would love an update

      So there are some really cool ideas here that work:  the airplane in flight, skydiving to escape, the great wall and the ice breaking finale.  The mechanics are all there, and the campaign is a lot of fun.  Those are the most important parts, and they are very well done here.
      What can be improved:
       - the parachute packs are small and hard to find (maybe because they are small)
       - the lighting can be made more dramatic and exciting, and still be realistic
       - the paths for level 2 are a bit confusing on the wall.  A bit of better directions (markers) can improve things here.
      So overall, I think this is worth keeping, replaying and enjoying.  Well done.

      Zombies in China!?

      It has some interesting areas,such as the plane at the beginning & The Great Wall.
      There were no errors & the map was well made.
      The finale was a nice change from the usual ones. It was quite a challenge sliding around the ice collecting fireworks to free the ship.
      
      The only problems were the fireworks seemed to have weird physics when you try to place them near the spots to melt the ice,they would slide or bounce around sometimes falling into the water. Which I found out there's only a limited supply of them,would be good if they respawned or if there was another box of them in the area.
      
      Also on single player,the bots seem to just stand there when the fireworks go off so they end up taking damage & incapping themselves,I finished the campaign by myself as they kept taking damage from them.It felt a bit short but the map is a lot of fun.
      A great campaign which I'll be replaying again.

      "Good Concept"

      Pros:
      The First Level (I like unique tasks in contrast to the whole run and gun gameplay)
      Great Map Design
      Suitable Music 
      
      Cons:
      If you shoot the Fireworks by accident and run out, you have to start over the finale.
      
      Fun Map. I like it :)

      Review for Wan Li (21/10/2015)

      I think this is a great map. :) Not bad, Good Texture, Good Mapping. Outstanding point is that I really like your ending way and also, the shocking in the first map is little bit annoying. Not Bad <3

      Pros:

      Interesting events
      Turbulence in Map 1 moved items around.
      If you wait long enough on the plane, the parachutes become visible

      Cons:

      The parachutes in Map 1 should be visible from the start.
      Path not clear on Great Wall
      Finale is tedious
      Supplies not well placed in finale
      Bots can't handle the ice well and slip off into the water and die.

      Conclusion:

      Some unique things in this campaign. Unfortunately, not all of them are good. Still worth a play.

      Pros:

      Excellent environment!
      Dynamic pathways in map 2 make it very playable for a 3-map campaign.
      Unique gameplay and finale.
      Fantastic music.

      Cons:

      Onslaughts are very difficult.
      Slippery ice makes finale more difficult than it needs to be.
      Supplies could be more dense.
      Bot navigation issues when it comes to planks and ladders.

      Conclusion:

      This is a stimulating campaign that isn't for the faint of heart. Those seeking a challenge may want to consider giving this a try.
      • I am wondering...With so many negatives listed, how on earth did you score it with a 5/5?

      Pros:

      - Great Wall!
      - Awesome winter environment
      - Variety of paths
      - Creative idea for the finale

      Cons:

      - Finale is broken. It's riddled with problems, ranging from bugs to poor balance
      - Very short campaign unless you get stuck

      Conclusion:

      My team had great fun until we got to the finale, which was completely broken and ruined it for us.
      
      - Couldn't leave: after completing all objectives on several different tries, we could never get the rescue boat to leave. Had to end by quitting the campaign.
      - Buggy ice: sometimes it would melt, sometimes it wouldn't. My team was being as precise as possible with the boxes, but it still sometimes didn't work.
      - Infinite tanks + infinite hordes + slippery ice: too much. Keep the slippery ice because it's unique, but make the tanks/hordes alternate rather than keep spamming constantly. Spam isn't fun. It's challenging enough with all the slipping, it doesn't need neverending respawns.

      8.8

      Pros:

      - One of the many custom campaigns that is set in another country. I've seen many great add-ons, and this is one of them.
      
      - The campaign is more fun with multiplayer.
      
      - Nice winter environment.
      
      - The rescue chapter takes a creative way for players to enable an escape route.

      Cons:

      - Difficulty with finding the right pathway during the Great Wall chapter on my first playthrough.
      
      - The ice is a bit too slippery to me, I have to slow down when melting ice, but it's not all too bothersome. Players still need to set a distance because the fireworks as usual, burn them aside from the zombies. Running too fast on your feet also can get you to either slip at the edge of the ice hanging for dear life or drown to death in the water. Ouch!
      
      - Missing asset: The skybox in the Great Plane chapter only shows pink and black checkerboards. It could be that said asset exists from any game I do not own, or the creator was a little rushed in the development of the campaign. Probably the former.

      Conclusion:

      Seeing that Wan Li is part of a previous contest, I could see why it was the winner (and deserved that), but there still are some flaws here and there. Nevertheless, I enjoyed my entire playthrough in the campaign. I really wish people out there have this and still play it.

      7.5

      Pros:

      -- Stupendous atmosphere in the first map; you could take out L4D2's super-fun mechanics and swap in an actual horror game EASILY.
      
      -- Said map is also really fun to kill zombies in. 
      
      -- The cultural village in the second map is charming.
      
      -- Randomized paths are a good thing when they make sense.

      Cons:

      -- Randomized paths don't always make sense or have any indication of how to select the right one; I had to find the right way to the saferoom by trial and error on both of my playthroughs. (-0.5)
      
      -- Slipping effect in the finale is a cool idea, but it's so strong that the finale can take as long as the second map. (-0.5)
      
      -- Gauntlet on the second map is a real slugfest. Giving the survivors a few seconds to prepare before it starts would make it dramatically more approachable. (-0.5)
      
      -- A seven-part cola run is a bit much in my mind. (-1)

      Conclusion:

      Definitely a map with a lot of good ideas, and I can see why it won; the author made a lot of good stuff later too. But it's, well, it's not perfect. Best to know what you're getting into.

      9.1

      Pros:

      - love the little children singing in chinese in the 2nd map; it's really cute!
      - THE GREAT WALL OF CHINA! HELL YEAH!
      - a very interesting finale
      - love the snow and winter environment

      Cons:

      - in the finale, the ice is really slippery and so it's hard to shoot properly
      - when a person brings the firework crate to melt the ice, if he's unlucky he may not have enough time to run before the ice melts as the ice makes the person unable to escape quickly; this then makes the person fall into the water and die
      - in the first map, i see a pink sky with black squares only

      Conclusion:

      Really interesting campaign, especially the finale. This campaign makes me want to go to China someday, excluding the zombies of course. XD

End of results.
