Operation Na Pali updates 09 May 2002 Hellscrag
Operation Na Pali will now no longer feature the jeep, since the implementation problems were holding up the release. On a brighter note, DavidM has revealed that the pack will feature a total of 38 playable maps... he claims that it's one more than Unreal had, but Unreal actually had 38 as well. Still, who's complaining? A SP campaign as long as the original game has got to be good.
