MINUSES SUMMARY
Fly down to the asteroid, 'borrow' the Strogg air-strike marker, shut down the force-fields, and get out. That's your mission, and you need to 'borrow' a shotgun to do it (poor Flakenberg). This level will really keep you moving. The map is large and complex, and a lot less linear than most. Strogg are well placed, and you'll need to conserve that ammo if you want to make it through this one. There are a wide variety of distinct areas to explore, and you'll need to think your way through it if you're going to get past all the obstacles in your path. Secrets are well implemented, and a dash of homage and humor is thrown into each, adding a fun element to secret hunting (shhhh!). Dennis has a unique approach, and this level is definitely his own creation, unlike anything else out there. Action is tough, but plenty of cover is provided. On the down side: Much of the map was too dark for my tastes, there was more than enough health left over, and I did find it possible to get myself trapped in an few areas, though it admittedly took some doing. Looking for something a bit different? Want a huge level to explore that will make you pay close attention, and do a lot of moving around? Then this is for you... a good level with a distinct flavor... enjoy!
