I find it wayyyyy better than the camp fest that was Lab map 1. Its so CQC that your always forced into firefights so there never really is a dull moment. Sooo in short I find it 100000000000000x better than the old one. I am a CQC player so I guess that has something to do with why I like it. They more than likely made it like that so LM1 is Long Range and LM2 is CQC. I hope LM3 is both.
I haven't played it yet, it looks really cool and fun though.
However, I'm guessing it will be overpopulated with tryhards much like the first one.
I feel bad for people who weren't part of the original ND forum, this one will never be as good. It is tragic.
I just played the lab with a friend and I had a few problems with it;
- The spawns were not that great, it actually reminded me of the good old u2 spawns
- Everything felt cluttered
- The map colouring should have been different
