REVIEW

 

            It's SATURDAY!!!!

 

            What better way to start a Saturday morning than with a good game.  Ah, yes...it harkens back to those thrilling days of yesteryear...80s....when I would wake up and hit the ol' Atari, cussing at it until Bugs Bunny would come on.   Well, this is like that...sorta.

 

            Marbellous is a large map (in spite of the mapper claiming that it's medium) with tons of that good ol' marble texture that's used to good effect.  Out of all the zones I checked out, there was only ONE sector (a switch) that had an off center marble texture.  The overall map is well designed, anyhow. 

 

DIFFICULTY:

            It was a bitch on Hurt Me Plenty. And I mean that.  I was constantly ducking snipers, running from ambushes, and paying for keys with blood.  There is plenty of ammo and health/armor throughout, but it felt scarce because I was fighting tooth and nail trying to stay alive, all the while cussing up a storm.  When I thought I made it thru the map, there was yet one more key to find....one more boss battle to survive....one more cuss word to invent. 

           

DESIGN:

            It follows the traditional style of mapping, nothing innovative.  It's just very simple and to the point.  Yet, it made good use of lighting, teleports, hiding baddies.  It requires lots of tracking back and forth flipping switches and gaining keys.  You will find yourself in tight situations with things hitting you from odd angles, making it a task to draw a bead on targets.  You will find yourself on the brink of death a LOT.  Bring your skills with this one.

 

SUMMARY:

            A very well made map.  A very frustrating map. This map's so good that I wanna slap the mapper!
