  1. Maybe?

    Sweet little mappack (3 maps in total) with plenty of combat, but lacking of puzzles and a better story.

    Story, from the readme: (spelling mistakes corrected hehe)
    “It’s 2137. There is a War between Earth and the Mars Colonie.
    You’re Gordon Freeman, a special military-scientific unit of the Earth force.
    But you’re in a Mars Prison ship with some Earth science personnel and some Earth police.
    During your travel in the prison ship to Mars the ship is attacked by an yet unkown alien race.
    This gives you the chance to escape…..”

    The start is intense, as we’re a spectactor of a fight between soldiers and aliens – right in front of our prison cell!
    Music is playing and the screen is tilting, that’s a nice atmospheric beginning!
    As soon as the door to our cell opens we should run outside and grab a weapon of a killed-in-action grunt, as his colleague is already shooting at us!
    That can be a lil tricky at first, but not impossible. Our next goal, we think, is to find a HEV suit, that’s easier said than done here, but don’t worry,
    we’ll find it soon enough, just take care when switching weapons until then.
    As we’ve finally found and equipped it we proceed to accomplish our main goal, to escape with our scientists friend who managed to hijack a space ship. Before that, we need to shut down two generators which can be easily accessed, all we have to do is to neutralize all opposing threats in our way…

    Mapping and lighting is quite cool, maybe a little boxy at all. Also weird texture selection, but that’s okay too. Just like the story, nothing really good or bad, but at least there is one.
    The combat is tough but always fair, some spawns are just odd and they have no spawning sound.
    It’s only a pity it’s a short mappack, but hey, there’s “Exodus Part 2” ! Some puzzles would’ve been also nice. Finding and activating buttons are the only ones.

    Pro’s:
    -Good mapping, nice lighting and layouts (maybe a lil boxy, too colorful textures) – outdoor area at the end is cool
    -Nice combat action, good balanced and only limited ammo (but more than enough though)
    -Some scripted events
    -Interesting prison escape, nice atmosphere at first (supported by music)
    -Story is okay
    -Goodies in crates
    -No bugs

    Con’s:
    -Very short playtime (~5-15 mins)
    -Sudden, odd spawns with no sound
    -No puzzles
    -No HEV at start (it’s like a tiny puzzle part of the mappack to access it)
    -Some textures look too colorful, often boxy, basic design

  2. Ten Four Reviews

    Yep, another map from a new author. In many ways, I’m kind of glad that I missed this stage in Quake II’s user map releases. This, unfortunately, is the kind of map where you begin to wonder why you starting reviewing them in the first place. It’s very obviously a first effort and, though he has tried hard, it’s really not too good.

    Continue reading the review on Ten Four…

  3. Phillip says Maybe

    I think this is the first map of pre-2000 I have played or at least I know I have played.

    It’s blocky and square and amateurish, but that’s what a lot of first maps are and considering this was a few months after the release of Half-Life it has some nice touches.

    I very much liked the beginning and feel the author should get credit for that at least.

    You’ll probably find it quite hard, but more because of bad design than clever planning.

    One word of advice: don’t destroy too many pipes in the reactor room otherwise…well, find out for yourself if you dare.

      How soon we forget! Do a filter on 1999 and see how many “PP says” reviews there are!

  4. Play It Later

    It’s a decent little 3-map pack with no real ending (it just crashes out of HL – ouch). I really liked the maps, except for the big room where you have to press a button before you can head over to the escape area. I got stuck in this room and didn’t know how to get out because the door wouldn’t open once the water started rising. I solved it by playing again and rushing out the door before the problem happened again, but I think that might be a design flaw. It’s worth a play.

  5. Maybe?

    To coin a phrase, ‘da fuq did I just play?’

    It showed… well, some complexity and promise in that regard. It wasn’t a total disaster of impossible puzzles or corridors, but… it was quite hard because there were no clear methods to do anything. Was there a way *not* to destroy those pipes? I guess they were pipes? They turned clear and looked like an effect after the water rose.

    I had gotten stuck in the wall of one spot on a room change, had to start over. Got stuck repeatedly in the door of the bunker in the last section, and had to noclip there. Didn’t bother trying to figure out how to get the HEV suit properly, just blew the pipes, grabbed it, and noclipped when the water wouldn’t let me out. That’s all kinds of poor mapping right there.

    Not having the ability to change weapons was… um, problematic, before that point, too. Basically, in terms of level design, it was garbage.

    In terms of mapping and overall look the ideas were pretty sound. But executed rather weakly, I suppose that was an early map by every definition.

    Not impossible to play, ended poorly and without effort, but still probably worth a few minutes to play and be baffled.

  6. Play It Later

    in agreement with everyone’s comments, I just upgraded my recommendation by one in consideration of its age 🙂

    This was interesting and overall fun. Though I have to admit I didn’t like the beginning part at all, I mean start without the HEV suit is a total and almost unacceptable flaw in this mappack, because the beginning is so intense and with immediate combat action, so you really feel unprotected.

    Once you get how to retrieve the Suit the rest of the mappack is fun but quite short.

    I hope we can see the 2nd part soon.
