An EDF styled base on an alien planet that appears to be in the process of being re-assimilated back into alien firmament.
Quite a collection of textures and pallet applications makes for an interesting atmosphere. A healthy dose of architectural detailing and layered sections via tiers and stairs keeps things looking interesting, and avoids feeling flat.
Right off the start the map proves to be hard as the switch to be shot in order to escape your holding cell is pretty small, hard to see, and hard to hit with a pistol round. Things only get harder from this moment on. Notice a pattern yet?
Gameplay is a difficult slug-out with some pretty tough aliens in some fairly close quarters. Activating switches and having rockets and drones explode on your backside is literally a pain in the ass. Repeat several times. The lack of healing items and heavy weapons for the first half of the level only exasperates the situation. Luckily the design and terrain do provide some decent cover, but it's still annoying to have to take down a mini-battlelord with a pistol.
A nice looking map to frequently die in.
