MINUSES SUMMARY
Your goal is to shut down a Strogg time machine, before they use it to go back and stop the Earth invasion. I had a tough time getting into this map. It never pulled me in... got me involved. There are some nice bits of eye candy, good solid construction, and a good fight or two, but no real fun. The flow was uneven, and the map was very easy to complete. Even the big final confrontation with that big flying insect-guy was made very simple. The hallway leading out of the room he's in is too small for him to enter... so it's a simple shoot, sidestep, repeat effort. There was a weapons overload as well. I exited the map with 40 slugs for my Railgun, 300 bullets, 10 shells, 87 health, 25 armor, 30 grenades... you get the picture. Another gripe was an elevator which behaves very poorly. Once it's up, it won't come down, unless you go up with it to send it down. All told, the map was quick (39 Strogg on Skill 2), easy, and just not much fun.
