MINUSES SUMMARY
The first thing I liked about this level was the look. Everything was done in brown tones, giving it a very natural feel. The crates were also done with a texture I don't believe I've seen used for boxes before. Everywhere I went the map had the same good look, and natural outdoor areas with no mis-alignments to distract me. My next delight in the map was the fact that the Strogg are so well placed. By the time I neared the end, I was paraniod, sneaking around every corner suspiciously. On top of this, the map plays well, items are sparse, and it is a bit challenging. On the downside, the look, although nice, was used throughout the map, making for a lack of variety. The Strogg, though well placed, were seperated enough to make things a bit easier than they could've been. A nice cluster attack or two would've been nice. All in all, this is a fantastic first release for Alex, and I'm counting on him to do some good things down the road.
