    The mission here is to search a nuclear weapon in Iraq that the US is suspecting there. But unfortunately the place has been taken over by soldiers.
    It starts in a prison and ends after cruising with a little boat..
    Sounds good? Yes it does, but the conversion of it is bad.

    Pro’s:
    -Good balanced combat (in the 2nd half of the mod)
    -Secret areas
    -Outdoor / indoor areas

    Con’s:
    -Bad mapping, lighting and design
    -No HEV at start
    -Tough beginning (bad balanced)
    -Silly story
    -No puzzles
    -Weird end

  5. Ten Four Reviews

    In a word, Prisoner of War is odd, and that’s in both a bad and good way. Odd because of how it plays, but at the same time, of how it doesn’t play.

    At heart, this is a standard map pack boasting a dizzying array of human and alien enemies – a formula that usually works well and doesn’t need to be tinkered with. But this map pack tinkers with it, switching between human and alien enemies too arbitrarily & abruptly. The fundamental problem here is that the gameplay goals & routing change direction too many times. In the end, this makes gameplay infuriating at times. Add the obvious attempts at nonlinearity and this map pack can easily induce headaches.

    Level design is overall substandard, but there are some nice ideas here and there, some of which aren’t executed all that well.

  6. Maybe?

    This mod is interesting enough, but hard. There are a lot of puzzles and non-linear gameplay. Same time there are no autosaving points and this is very bad for the mod of that kind, because you can even stuck in some places with no posibilities to exit, or you can miss some important things. Level design is good only for beginning mapper. There is also a design bug on the map pow5, so you’ll be forced to use noclip to leave a locked house.

    P. S. (SPOILER!) Also a little advice: while playing do some manual saves on every map and do not even enter into the dark maze, because there is only a trap without an exit.

    1. Hmm, it’s a little puzzle in the locked house, not a bug!

      [spoiler]You should use tripmine to escape ;)[/spoiler]
