MINUSES SUMMARY
These two maps by Wiebo de Wit make up one of the most elegant Q2 experiences available. The architecture is wonderfully creative and intricate. The texture use is both stylish and effective, yet also exhibits creativity and risk taking which draws the eye. Lay-out is incredible in both maps, yet the second map in particular is intricately designed. The path ahead is not always clear. More than once I had to stop, think about where I was, retrace my steps, and put some thought into where I had to go next and just how the heck I was going to get there. Good observation skills and attention to detail are key factors in navigating your way through this excursion. Yet Wiebo wasn't content to stop there, he also has added in a few creative touches, and unique surprises, to make an already wonderful experience even more interesting. I don't like to spoil surprises, so take my word that you will find yourself silently congratulating and thanking Wiebo more than once. Action is minimal, and I would have preferred another fight or two. However, by limiting the amount of ammo and health available, while making use of some excellent Strogg placement, a good level of challenge was maintained. This is not a gib fest, these maps are a thinking man's Quake. So, if you are in the mood to view some very beautiful maps, and think you have enough wits to make your way through the intricate maze-like pipe-work of the second level, I suggest you download this fine adventure at once.
