MINUSES SUMMARY
Paradise Lost was designed by Neil Manke as a PC Gamer exclusive.
Hot on the heels of his last effort Soldier of Fortune, Neil is back with Paradise Lost, a Coconut Monkey adventure. Fans of PC Gamer magazine will recognize their favorite pal, and be eager to aid him. The game: You are a coconut carved into the shape of a monkey... and you must rescue your new game code for Gravy Trader from the evil, feindish, Pierre! Mwahaahaahaa! Highlights of the map are the wonderful (and hilarious) new skins for several of the Strogg, great new backgrounds, the new character sounds (very funny), several cool triggers based on the "the volcano could erupt any minute!" theme, and a challenge that even frustrated me on Skill 1!!! On the downside, the action flow is a bit choppy, with hellishly difficult fights, where you are always under-gunned, and low on health. You will need to find the secrets to make it in this map. A few more +10 (or even an occasional +2) health power-up and some more ammo, with a few less fights where the player just can't move around, and this map would have been a bit more fun. All told, you should definitely get this map, if just for the good laughs (Love that Pierre), and unique game experience.
