Helms Deep Survival map

I've not played this yet, but it looks truly epic!
A Left 4 Dead mapper has painstakingly recreated the fortress of Helm’s Deep from Lord of the Rings in the form of a huge Left 4 Dead survival map, which means you can create Gimli and Legolas’ competition to slay the most enemies over the course of the battle, only this time using assault rifles instead of a bow and an axe. If you don’t have the Zombie Genocidest achievement for killing 53,595 zombies yet, this map might be a good way to get it.

The three walls of Helm’s Deep have been faithfully recreated, meaning you’ll have to fall back deeper and deeper into the fortress as the zombies press, much like the defending forces were forced to in Lord of the Rings. The Left 4 Dead Survivors do get a few advantages over their Tolkien counterparts, though, like four mounted machine guns on the outer wall of the fortress. On the other hand: no Gandalf, so they’re probably even.

The video's a little laggy due to the sheer numbers of zombies![youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4fpFkh0yVw&feature=player_embedded[/youtube]

Played before in l4d1 and it was just boring. Far too easy to defend due to the long distance the zombies have to walk. this reduces their ammounts. Tanks have to walk a massive distance and the minigun inside just kills him for 90% before he reached you.

Then in looks. its the same all the map and he used model textures on walls. that last one tells he doesnt playtest at all or ask for any help to improve the map.
Now on the workshop!
