From the makers of William Shatner's Tekwar: The Game of The Series of The Book:
I can't wait.
Little do they know that Lasers + Textured Polygons = ...
Wait a cotton-pickin' minute! This is just the plot to Half-Life! Or rather, Half-Life is just the plot to this! TSK TSK TSK.
I poke my head into the next room and I'm getting shot at by this guy! I had absolutely no idea this guy was here, he wasn't making any noise!
Take off half my health in one second, will you?
Where on earth am I going? You'd think that given that this is a human-built research facility that I'd have access to a map showing where the elevators are. Whoever sent me in mustn't have cared all that much.
I'm having a look through the fences set either side of the building entrance. Hey, there's an astronaut over here! I'm sure he has some useful information or items that can
This music is awful. It started off pretty bad and it's getting worse as it goes on.
Alright, you asked for it!
Zeroes across the board. A solid performance!
The least they could have done is acknowledged that I killed four of the eyeball monsters and rounded it up to a 1% alien kill ratio.
I try it five more times, but it's really difficult to get out of the first room without having your health brought down to nothing by the first two eyeball monsters that appear. I figured out that they're coming in through the blue locked doors while I'm sliding about looking for the right computer. I can rush in through the doors after killing them if I want, but all that does is trap me in there with no way out!
There's no alternative, I'm going to lower the difficulty. I was playing on Captain difficulty (which I think was the default), and I'm lowering it one setting to Lieutenant difficulty. Shameful.
The alien counter's only showing three, well, two aliens here, and they're not gonna be sneaking up on me any more. Lieutenant starts off with a full map of the current floor and markers showing the locations of the remaining enemies. They're not any less deadly, but I now know where they are.
Captain had a map but it only showed a small box around my current position.
I'm on to the second music track now. It's not totally bad!
Did I mention how fast this guy runs, by the way?
And it's off to the exit. You don't even have to kill all the aliens to advance on Lieutenant difficulty, so you can blitz through the game like crazy if you like. The exit is the same place where you entered, but it's not marked on the map.
I'm going to stop playing. I'm really enjoying playing the game but I don't think it's going to have any new graphics to show you any time soon. It's visually boring enough as it is, so let's call it a day.
Captain and Lieutenant difficulty are like two completely different games. Captain is more of a test of luck and survival until you can find the map item. Lieutenant is a straightforward seek and destroy mission. I can't imagine what the easiest difficulty level must be like. Do you just click the mouse button and instantly win?
