Reviewer's comments

"This is a rather flawed TR3 level. It's not bad as such, but the bugs and crude scenery proved rather distracting. A large amount of guards to kill and obtain key cards and security fuses, which means that the gameplay mainly depends on locating the correct receptacles, alongside some backtracking and a tight underwater maze. I had trouble getting through this one as sometimes movable blocks wouldn't function correctly and guards wouldn't spawn correctly. Not much fun." - Ryan (22-Jul-2017)

"It's been a while since the last time I played a TR3 level. In this one Lara enters to a hidden base behind a rocky mountain. There are many bugs such as irregular walls/blocks (Lara can pass through them or floats on some blocks), weird but funny animation for the doors, pushable blocks that become unpushable. At times it was confusing, as you must find the right keyholes for your items, and some are well-hidden. I liked it but it's not a great adventure." - kabal (29-Jun-2017)

"A fairly bland base-themed level that is ultimately just not very fun to play, including several irritating glitches present amongst generally uninspired level design, with flat lighting utilization. And while other aspects such as texturing and enemy/object choices are handled well enough, it simply doesn't make up for the unfinished nature of it all. Better off just skipping this one." - Ceamonks890 (26-Jul-2015)

"Whilst a TR3 level always makes a nice change, there are undoubtedly better examples out there, including two of this builder's earlier levels! This is very much a base/shooter level and somewhat carelessly made, with many wafer thin walls etc., and rather uneventful gameplay." - Jay (16-Jun-2014)

"A rather interesting TR3 level with nice textures. Though some walls were too thin and pushable blocks bugged. Had a problem with getting through this level and had to get help of walkthrough. It seems there is too many same keys for many different routes and it might be problematic for gameplay. Anyway it's rather good TR3 level, worth giving a try." - Casual Raider (17-Jul-2013)

"Well the first outdoor area looked good and it was more fun than inside the building where it goes lever-door-shoot dog/guard-keycard-lever-... That was very tedious and sloppy. Hopefully no one else tries this out anymore and falls asleep while playing this." - manarch2 (06-Nov-2010)

"If you play this 35 minute adventure with a walkthru nearby, it is likely to be rather interesting. Some of the room connections are clever and surprising, the progression through the base is fairly smooth with a bunch of guards and dogs to kill along the way to collect a series of key cards and a few blocks to push around. But it is a bit too easy to miss out on the vital plugs to find and thus be stuck later on and the many thin walls and graphics issues with the opening doors and some of the diagonal objects really spoil a lot of the atmosphere. This would indeed be a much better level with a bit of polishing, but I found it enjoyable nonetheless." - MichaelP (15-Jun-2010)

"We are on a base. We'll have problem with the wall climbing in the beginning. I could climb up with Lara's legs in the air, and on other places too. On the level's beginning if you can't swim into the crack, pull again the underwater switch. - You waited a lot, and the door closed. Unfortunately it's a bit buggy level. First time I've missed the yellow key, and went back through the main hall crates aren't worked, we couldn't push those. And be careful, because that's matter where you swim in the pool room, 'cause you can stuck between two doors, if you couldn't opened these doors. Interesting, doors won't be open, just explode. Unfortunately there aren't secrets, I couldn't find. But it was a good adventure, I can suggest for everyone." - Obig (30-May-2010)

"Generates interest in trying to figure out how to get through the level. But right from the start there are untextured areas, paper-thin walls, and push blocks that Lara can walk inside. Moved a bottom push block to find the Uzis, but when Lara steps to get them the way is shut off by an invisible block. I was stuck for a time, until figuring out that the solid green toxic slime is something that Lara is supposed to dive into. Lara pushes a button for a door, and the door doesn't open--it flies away like an animated butterfly. Then somehow it reappears with a closing sound. This happened repeatedly. Sometimes areas get reset, so Lara shoots the same guard twice, thus getting an unnecessary extra Key Card to end the game with. The problems create an uneasy feeling for players, because it isn't clear whether it will be possible to finish. A mess, but playable." - dmdibl (11-Apr-2010)

"This is surely a level builder's first try and it seems to be not betatested. There are so many graphic bugs, flaws in texturing, paperthin walls, and a funny door opening animation with the door spinning around and then vanishing in thin air. Some other doors open and close randomly. I saw the uzi lying under a pushable block, but could not get it because of an invisible block hindering me. Instead I could walk right into the block above (as well as Icould walk into some other blocks). Not to mention those narrow claustrophobic underwater corridors. Best I can say about this level is that there was enough desert eagle ammo spread around that comes in handy to fight those bad guys and dogs on your way to collect several keycards and plugs. Altogether this level is far too buggy to recommend it." - Jerry (22-Oct-2009)

"This was one of those very early levels which was built with good intentions,but was simply too ambitious (it tries to tell a story,among other things)for what the Unofficial Editor engine was capable of achieving at that time. The opening jungle area is woeful and buggy and does not auger well;but the adventure picks up once Lara enters the Military base and(despite many wafer-thin walls)the design of the layout isn't at all bad,with quite a bit of unexpected returning to places already visited and some effective battles with guards and dogs. The underwater maze was dark,complex and rather nasty (and made all the more aggravating by a timed underwater door);but the adventure succeeded in building to a good Finale with a lovely (although unseen) Missile launch and the destruction it caused. If (and it's a big 'if') you can overlook all the graphical and design flaws,there's a reasonable level struggling to get out." - Orbit Dream (18-Sep-2009)
