Hey all! I'm new to the boards... Long time viewer & 3DR fan -- first time poster. I think this is new to the XBLA version of the game (maybe) but when you are on the side of the freeway where the sewer is, and you go underwater, if you come up for air on\by the gate with the hole you get squished\die. It has happened to me twice... Don't remember this in the PC version.

I think it's in there too. There were certain conditions in the original games with the player collision that basically killed you. They are fairly hard to find in the game, but the one you mention is a very obvious example and it's 100%. If you go up in that little niche by the underwater gate, you're going to die.

On The Abyss (episode 1, level 5) as you hop across the lava at the end of the map, by the spaceship, you can get wedged into a crack after you jump across the lava, as you are climbing up the mountain, and die.

Yeah, that was there in the original, too. I got killed several times by that one during development. I just learned not to surface there. :)

Yeah it sucked because it happened to me twice in a dukematch and I ended up losing 25 to 23...

Now that I think about I think when I used to use the build editor, I remember going underwater was a "teleport" to another piece of the map, so in theory the water was a solid. So if I were to come up for air, that little wedge would be like being squished by 2 hard surfaces. I may be wrong though...
