Introduction


This is the first 3D shooter that I have ever reviewed. It's a whole new experience for me so sit back and try to enjoy it. Now, usually at this point I talk about why I chose to review this game, but it wasn't my choice. It was just the first game that I was asked to review for Wolf Pack Reviews. While I was waiting for the game to load I tried to get some sort of hint as to what I was getting myself into by reading some of the comments. One comment that stood out said "morbid". This piqued my curiosity and at the same time made me want to do an about face. Hmm..? What..? The game is done loading? Ok, let's get down to business.


Gameplay


I just want to start by saying that I did not finish this game. I got quite a way into it and got stuck by an annoyingly placed teleporter and some conveyor belts. That being said, this game is full troublesome traps, tricks, and treachery. What's going to kill you in this game is not so much the enemies (Although they did kill my partner. I know, lcraniuml, I wasn't supposed to use a partner. Watcha gonna do 'bout it?) but rather the aforementioned traps and tricks. One particular trap is a conveyor belt that leads to a barrier. If you go on the conveyor belt before the barrier is disabled then it is essentially game over. Struggle as much as you want, you aren't going to get back. There is another conveyor belt later on that just leads to a lava tile. One step on the belt and it's instadeath. Hopefully, you will still have some lives left.


Another interesting thing about this game is that throughout the whole thing you are getting messages from some unseen entity, presumably over some sort of loudspeaker. His messages paint an interesting story. What that story is, I have know idea. I didn't pay attention to the messages. I was too focused on survival, but I did read a few of his messages. I can say this about the story: The comment that I mentioned before that said, "morbid" was pretty spot on.


Conclusion


The combination of the puzzles and the placement of the enemies makes this a pretty challenging game. However, I'm pretty sure I could beat it with just one more try. The game's back story adds to the overall experience and enjoyability of this game. The only flaw that I could see was a bit of a lack of enemies throughout the bulk of the game. The majority of the enemies are concentrated in just a few levels. A few more well placed enemies could have done wonders for this game. As for the placement of the items, there is not much to be said. The only items were a few scattered first-aid kits, here and there. There wasn't a lot of them, but just enough to keep me alive.


It was a pretty good game, through and through. It has it's flaws, but what game doesn't?
