Review by Forge

A large space station is overun by aliens and it's Duke's mission to wipe out the infestation.
A large very well designed map with a real nice layout.
As usuall, Fernando does a great job with texturing, lighting, shading and detail work. Attention to detail and the little extra effects make for a very nice atmosphere.

Game play is very even but navigation can be confusing at times.
As far as surviving alien encounters; the map is very even throughout. Ammunition can be a bit tight at times for certain weapons, but Duke's arsenal is loaded so using many different weapons while combating the enemy helps. Duke may take a beating or two, but there's a fair amount of health spread around.
The premise is exploring to find keys and switches which drop barriers and doors. Exploring is fun because of the nice interlinking layout, but there's a few instances when it's not obvious which door or barrier becomes open after throwing a switch.
Definitely for those who like exploring and solving barrier opening puzzles.

Texturing/Lighting-Shading: 9/10
Sprite Work/Detailing-Architecture: 8/10
Ambiance: 19/20
Layout: 20/20
Gameplay/Difficulty: 37/40
