MINUSES SUMMARY
Ian's most ambitious creation yet has arrived, and the challenge is back. This 2 map set is tough, very tough. Your job is to shut down a Strogg facility, and escape with your life. You will be faced with several cluster attacks, and some well placed Strogg, while finding only the most meager supply of health and ammo to keep you going. Architecture is bland , but the lay-out is decent and keeps you on the go. The main theme of the map is large cluster attacks, with not enough cover, and limited fire-power. Ian knows how to launch an attack at you that will keep you from gaining the higher ground, and make the fight intense yet just barely possible to win. Highlights include a wonderfully constructed courtyard area which sports a nifty turret gunner, and an inspired entrance to the second map. Minor gripes include: limited goals, easy secrets (author acknowledged), some underlit areas, and an abrupt ending. It's a bit of a mixed bag here, with high and low points, but if it's a challenge you seek, then grab this now, and prepare to re-start frequently and save often.
