MINUSES SUMMARY
Here's a level, bursting with potential, that falls short of being good. This is a 2 map pak, that is rather attractive, although a bit repetative. Your goal, destroy the missile and installation of a new Strogg warlord. Unfortunately, the warlord himself never makes an appearance, eliminating any justification for the massive arsenal of weapons and ammo you're given. Add dozens (and I mean dozens) of +25 health power-ups to the equation, and what we have here is a cake walk. At times the action borders on being furious, but the knowledge that all that health is just around the corner kills any desperation, or fear. I was stunned when I saw that the starting room actually had 3 +25 health power-ups in it... and no Strogg! The level does sport a rather attrative map #2, and map #1 is a Quake1 throwback, that looks pretty good also, and there are a few creative touches sprinkled here and there... but where's the action? I've said it before, and I'll say it again... Hard setting should be Hard. No excuses.
