Comments like "this looks like crap" or "another shitty film movie" really piss me off, especially when one of our own is working on the game. I understand creative criticism, and this isn't it. We respect and support our people, if it's a studio released game or a simple map, we support our people, we're not Facepunch.

Not sure Vilham, it's all way above my pay grade in the lofty world of soul-less finance where that stuff get's worked out. For me I think my time with Bizarre is done either way and I'm really excited about moving on to bigger and better things.

Dylan cheers for leaping to my defence mate but don't worry about me: you don't survive long as a designer unless you have a hide thicker than a Challenger tanks ;)

Sucks to hear man. At least you've got some solid XP under your belt. As others have said, I have no doubt you'll find work. The guys at mapcore could probably hook you up with a gig at Crytek UK.

Oh yeah.. his name IS Dylan. All this time I've been reading it as "Noodly Dan". Damned dyslexia :F

If I were to give some honest feedback I think it looks like you guys did a great job visually for the world environments, though the gameplay looks a lot like a typical cover based shooter with some chase scenes thrown in. The models look well constructed, but are let down by some flat looking diffuse maps.
Regardless, I think it should be relatively easy for you to find a new job since you've had experience working on not only a commercial game title, but a major brand.

Anywhere (and potentially everywhere) that makes good games :)
