MINUSES SUMMARY
Marty Howe is back - for one last time. Seems he's moving from Down Under to Finland to work on Max Payne, and this is his last free Spq2 for us to enjoy. These 2 maps continue in the same style as his past few maps - short and sweet, with high octane action. Your mission is to run around in the mines and spar with the Strogg. The game is played through 2 small maps with signature Howe explosiveness, simple yet stylish looks, and faced paced Strogg attacks. I really enjoyed the maps, the layout was great and the atmosphere was frenzied with the lava and explosions. The reason this game rates so much lower than his previous efforts was the low level of challenge. With the super shotgun and so much ammo, and the glut of health in the second map - I exited with 120 health, full ammo, and 4 +25 health packs lying around - a bit excessive. I'd be willing to bet that is I used the regular shotgun instead of the Super shotgun (regular shotgun was not provided), that the challenge would have been just about right. I also spotted a few minor misalignments and one large crate that had a section of a wall going through it. I suggest playing these maps at one skill level higher than you normally play at, to make for a tougher game. Bottom line - it's quick but fun, and I'd like to take this time to give a big Thanks!!!! To Marty for the massive amount of quality maps that he has sent our way over the last several months. I've really enjoyed your work Marty - best of luck to you at Remedy!
