    It’s hard to recommend this release. The layout is unimaginative, the basic gameplay too obvious and the whole thing a little amateurish.

    The idea of electrical control boxes switching normal doors open is not very good. In fact why are the doors locked anyway?

    Really, It’s hard to belive that this too 16 weeks to make. The design document probably took most of that time!

    Map I tried to forget.

    Maybe?

    Go in and shoot a FEW zombies. Go out the same way and shoot even FEWER zombies.
    That’s it.
    Lots more zombies, speed zombies and adding a couple of poison zombies might make this a “play it later’
    For when you are really, really, really desperate for something to play.

    Avoid It!

    No reason to bother downloading that; Go and play something different instead, like Curse or Union or Minerva or Solitaire, yeah even Solitaire is more fun than THAT.

    This is more like “something to do”. Jasper’s first paragraph sums it up nicely.

    It would have been nice if the author had made the “on the way back” zombies invisible, or rather just spawn them when needed. At first I tried to kill one of them, and it had no effect (and when it’s lying on the floor is it really supposed to be making sounds? Don’t know if that’s something that can be controlled).

    The cameo of G-Man was the best part, though I don’t think he was really being the G-Man–he looked more like a frightened scientist or administrator or something.

  6. Avoid It!

    This map is not terrible. What it is, however, is perhaps even worse than terrible, it’s boring. The main enemies are regular zombies and there are a few fast zombies. The mapping is bland and looks, well, boring. The switch/door mechanic is confusing and makes no sense. The only interesting things are a fast zombie breaking through a window (the first time at least) and the “remains” of the project you find. Otherwise, it’s just not worth playing.
