Review :

Design: Another small an interesting release from the beginning of Quake 1 mapping...Everything is well put together in this one. It's most of the time build in a classic way without anything really impressive but it's simply close to perfection in it's approach with good architecture, lightning and interconnection, the present of not accessible extended environment and even if texturing could have perhaps been a little more thaught, the atmosphere is simply great...there are not a lot of word to explain something when you like it...it's just a feeling.
Gameplay: well balance in terme of combats that increase in challenge with you progression, but it's never difficult or a source of frustration. This expereince is enhance by some qwest for keys that will oirented the progression in a non linear travelling leading you to the ultimate chamber where the challenge could have been a little higher

In conclusion: simple and efficiant...this is typically the experience I really like
