MINUSES SUMMARY
J. F. Gustafsson has created a map the picks up where Age of Panic began. If you recall, Age of Panic opened to a gritty tunnel with rail-road tracks in it. This map follows that same theme. This time out, it's 1964, in Europe, and you a part of the resistance against the hostile alien forces that invaded Earth during WWII. Trapped inside a small cave, you must find some weapons and fight your way out. The lay-out of this cavern is wonderful. So many twists and turns, and excellent use of verticle space makes for a great feeling of exploration. There is a well defined dark and gritty atmosphere,which is accented by the twisted wreckage of the tracks, and occasional quakes. The challenge is high, both in maneuvering your way through the cave, and in facing the Strogg with your limited weapons, ammo, and health. Complaints include: a minor texture mis-alignment, and the fact that the map is just too small. It ends with a 'to be continued' message, but I feel that the second map should have been included to give this experience more stability. Just as I was getting into the game, it was over. A nice start, very unique, and worth checking out, though if you are very patient, you may want to wait until part 2 is available.
