    Talking about rough start, I died there so many times…

    Decent new weapon models, I think those were ok.

    But that mapping. Was just so strange. “Press this and that button and this and that happens”. Plus without any real story, I wasnt enjoying my time there. Im not saying that I was boring or anything, it just didnt work at all.

    Author is Evan3k, who ever that is anyways, lol!

  5. Ten Four Reviews

    Evan3k’s previous two World War 3 missions (reviewed by Unquenque) were, in short, paragons of amateur mapping with boring gameplay and uninspired architecture. Mission 3, however, is a marked improvement in nearly every way. It still has plenty of room for improvement, but what’s here may actually, finally be worth playing.

    One of the worst flaws in both previous missions was unnecessarily-difficult combat. That, however, is largely gone. A few fights still will test extreme tactic, but overall, combat is a lot fairer with more supply of weapons/ammo and better grunt placement. Still a gruntfest, but at least the design is improved for better enjoyment. One set-piece in particular is fiendishly hard – a series of sandy crests that lead to a tower armed with a rocket launcher, but at the same time can be undeniably fun.

    But interrupting the fun every so often are the annoying cutscenes. Cutscenes should always be used with care because they interrupt gameflow; too many are used here. Level design shows more quirks in the highly linear gameplay and the architecture, which remains unimpressive (sometimes outright odd) with a number of distinct boxy areas. There is however more variation this time around with varied routing.

    Still very rough around the edges, and in dire need of better thought-out level design, but overall Evan3k has managed to crank out a map pack with a good amount of entertainment value. Although a few combat-design flaws really get in the way, World War 3: Mission 3 is the best installment so far. Definitely worthy of a diversion.
