Very much id-like in a lot of ways. Could be a lot worse, could be better.

"Very much id-like" is a bit of an overstatement IMHO. The architecture is boxier and less inspired than id quality and there's a major design flaw in the placement of the second secret: if you don't already know it's there beforehand, you get it when everyone is dead and you don't need it anymore. Well, you don't need it anyway! It's much too easy on skill 2 and could have used twice more enemies.

Quite a good map. Everything is decent, except maybe the secrets. The first secret makes the player kind of overpowered. Well, on the other hand it's kind of obscure, and I found it only by accident. So, at least it's not necessarily that easy to find. The second secret, mentioned by bfg666, is actually meant for deathmatch, which is why it's of so little use in single player.

The biggest flaw would be the short duration of the map.

short id base like map that is worth a quick play through. I enjoyed that the level designer included secrets this time in his second map even though one is placed at the ending of the map. The architecture and his brush work has improved as their are various interesting locations that makes the map interesting to look at. However the map could have been longer and maybe could have include a few more enemies. Overall i would give this map a three out of five.
