Sept 15, 2014 - Update to original

 

 

 

Xenomorph Hive is a single level replacement for GZDoom by Kontra Kommando. Being an Aliens themed mod, you'd better bring a shitload of grenades... You're gonna need 'em.

Difficulty: 8

Following Starship Konrad, Xenomorph Hive pits you against a battle against the Xenomorph Queen in (you guessed it) the hive. Man, is this thing huge! And no matter what you put into it, the damn thing keeps coming! Your first task is gonna have to be grab that rifle and RUN. Put some space between you and the Queen.

Throughout the map, there are several dozens of xenomorph drones and face huggers. Taking on the Queen with all these bastards swarming you (Hey, this is their territory. What are you, some kinda human?) is not gonna end well. But, once you trash the extraterrestrial denizens of the hive, it's easy pickings on the Queen, provided you have enough space between you and it. Once you get it into a loop of following you around the hive over and over, you can backpedal and fire to your heart's content.

Just don't let it get too close to you. That is, unless you like having your spine crushed in one hit. You're gonna need more than a chiropractor to fix that.

Design: 9

I almost gave this category a perfect ten. The hive is completely otherworldly. Corridors appear to be lined with asphalt, fog obscures your view of what beasts hide in the corners, and jeez, that music! You really feel like you're in a last ditch battle against something you stand almost no chance of defeating.

The only reason this got a 9 is because I saw a HOM effect around some rubble in one of the corners of the map. I thought it was like a skylight or something, but upon further inspection, it turned out I was wrong. Regardless, it's something so obscure, you might not even notice it.

Playability: 8

Being a fast paced and challenging mod, you may initially have some problems getting moving. Hell, I'll just come out and say it. You probably aren't going to beat this your first time playing. But, it's okay. Challenging mods generally don't want you to beat them.

That aside, there really isn't much of a reason as to why you shouldn't pick this up and have fun with it almost immediately.

Overall (Not an Average): 8

I almost didn't think I was going to finish this one. Even if I hadn't, I would still recommend this. It's just that damn fun. Get it, you won't be disappointed.

And if you are, I'll just elevate your name to the top of the Xenomorph Queen's sh*tlist.
