Review by Forge on January 30-2012

The aliens have established an outpost on some distant planet and Duke must infiltrate their defenses and take out their power reactor.

A medium sized map with a decent layout and design.
Being an older map the visual quality doesn't live up to today's standards. There's a serious lack of shading, sprite work, and detailing, but there is some decent architectural structures.
This is one ugly looking map. The choice of texturing (mostly grays, greens, and browns) makes the map look like something found in a tupperware bowl that's been forgotten in the back of the fridge for a year and a half. It makes for a good alien planet atmosphere though.

Game play is pretty good.
The arsenal-ammunition-enemy ratio is fairly even throughout and for the most part well placed. Though there is a bit of an over abundance of health spread throughout the map.
There are a couple of keys to be found and a few switch puzzles to be solved, but this is mainly a move from the start to the finish in one piece styled map.
For those that like uncomplicated navigation with a bit of shooting along the way (being color blind helps too).

Texturing/Lighting-Shading: 5/10
Sprite Work/Detailing-Architecture: 4/10
Ambiance: 15/20
Layout: 17/20
Gameplay/Difficulty: 36/40
Overall: 77/100
