MINUSES SUMMARY
Castles of Stroggos is a 3 map Unit that is one of the better showcases of creativity I've played. There is an excellent story in the read me file, and the computer updates will keep you constantly on the move. The item placement is great, with weapons, ammo and health appearing at critical moments. The arcitecture is nice, and the lay-out is fantastic, sprawling out over an enormous area, and filled with plenty of diverse sections to explore. Action rocks: you'll be under constant bambardment, and the fighting gets hectic on several occasions, but never becomes overwhelming. All of these elements add up to a top notch experience, but Brian doesn't rest there. These maps are just packed full of creative ideas and sequences that make gameplay a new and pleasurable experience. This is one of those rare levels that begs to played more than once. This is a fantastic creation that should NOT be missed. Minor gripes include: a couple of places that I had to 'noclip' my way out of, secrets that were so hard I couldn't find them, and doors that had an annoying habit of pulling me along with them, doing some damage in the process. I even got caught in one doorway where the door went spastic one me, and killed me! That aside, this a a must play Unit, grab it now! Oh, and it ends with a promising "to be continued"...
