MINUSES SUMMARY
This is a very unique experience. A map based on a television show, featuring large outdoor areas that rival Unreal (well, not really:). The map is huge, filled with caves, waterfalls, cliffs, and many maze-like passageways. If you're the type who hunts down every secret, you'll likely be playing this all afternoon. The map provides a good challenge, and starts off hellishly difficult, until you figure out the secret (it's in the read.me if you don't want to figure it out yourself... but it's not that tough). For me, the gameplay was a bit lacking. It was pretty uneven in flow, and I found several ways to 'cheat'. For example, putting myself in a location where I was nearly impossible to hit by the Strogg, but I was able to dink them all away with my blaster. There aren't really any open-ground brawls, instead, for example, you'll face an island in the middle of a small body of water which holds 3 Gunners, and a Medic, and the surrounding cliffs are sprinkled with Guards and Enforcers. Pretty tough... unless you 'cheat' as I did. It's worth the download, if just to admire the unique look, new textures and builds, and hear the new sounds. The gameplay isn't poor, but could have been better. Not a bad map, and it'll fill up a few hours of your time. Check it out...
