MINUSES SUMMARY
Patrol Duty starts off in a creative fashion, tricking the player, and then adding a bit of humor to see you on your way. Architecture is very square and not very elaborate. It consists of a series of square, plain rooms full of boxes which surround a nice looking courtyard hub. Weapon placement seems arbitrary, as I got the super-shotgun before the shotgun, and had the chaingun, but no machinegun. Stogg placement is decent, but most Strogg are not facing toward the player as you enter a room, so it's easy to get the jump on them. There is one small goal as you must disable security to open the transport, yet the computer updates are not used to guide you. The map is solid, and I uncovered no texture errors or HOM. Overall, the level is a bit bland and seems to be a beginners effort, and needs a lot of work but signs of creativity, and technical ability are evident.
