Reviewer's comments

"Treebles "walkthrough" summed this up for me and I quote: "Not much to do here. This is just a remake of the inside of Cafe Metro from AOD. You can shoot the bartender, if you desire. End of Level. Secrets: none" There is basically nothing to do aside from bump into tables and shoot an escapee from the pound (AKA the bartender). Pointless..." - High Priestess (07-May-2019)

"Only a recreation of the famous cafe from Angel of Darkness. Nothing to do here except perhaps shoot the barman, and admire the nice environment." - Jose (28-Jan-2018)

"The most notable thing is that you can shoot the bartender (presumably because he prepared you the wrong beverage). There's also some nice textures to simulate the respective Angel of Darkness location, but there's nothing else to actually do." - Ryan (11-Oct-2016)

"I thought this one will contain something more than the original AoD location, but unfortunately it's indeed just a restaurant model with an owner who neither says nor drops anything if killed. Nonetheless incredibly huge effort has been put into the looks of this single room, and whatever happened to the author I hope he designs such things today." - DJ Full (25-Jan-2016)

"One room, a bartender who looks like he is the villain and even then I wasn't in the mood to kill him." - Gerty (20-Mar-2015)

"While an admirable attempt at remaking a level from TR Angel of Darkness, this release suffers greatly by not giving the player anything to actually do, besides looking at the scenery or killing the bartender, leaving you to immediately question why you wasted your time downloading this in the first place. Sure, the texturing and lighting isn't too shabby and objects used fit the surroundings perfectly, but that doesn't mean a whole lot if there isn't any strong gameplay to compensate. And that my fellow raiders, is practically the main issue here. So only worth a quick glance at best, if you ever wondered what a level from AoD could look like under the older PS1 engine and nothing more beyond that." - Ceamonks890 (16-Sep-2014)

"All this level is is a remake of the AOD Metro Cafe located in the 5th level. The Textures were nicely placed but there is no game play. The only thing to do is kill the baddie." - Kyle (05-Aug-2013)

"Here's a thought experiment - if you are trapped for the rest of eternity in a cafe with a bartender (doesn't have to be a bartender, but I assumed that was this gentleman's implied role here), and you're armed - is killing him cruelty or mercy killing? Hopefully you'll be distracted by the nice looking interior before even considering murder, but sadly there's not much else to do before you have to resolve to solving that dilemma. As said - the cafe is indeed an elegant prison, though bumping into hard collision gets annoying, and I don't know why the author did not consider expanding the game at least into a couple more rooms, if not a more expansive city based adventure. Worth a glance, but you should look elsewhere if you actually want a level with something to do in it (God forbid)." - eTux (26-Apr-2012)

"It really looks good, but no gameplay at all. A little puzzle and another two or three rooms could really make a good level, but in this case it's just a nicely textured room." - misho98 (27-Dec-2011)

"Lovely looking room, based on AOD, but all you can really do is admire the scenery for a few brief moments as I feel to shoot the poor chap behind the bar would be churlish (although possibly you might get a larger measure if you poured it yourself)." - Jay (07-Apr-2011)

"An amazing remake from AoD, but no gameplay at all. Sadly, as these amazing textures and objects made me want to play a full playable version of that. T_T" - Fabio (02-Jan-2011)

"There's only gameplay if you shoot the Bartender...tsk.It's quite a nice little place otherwise,although a little gallic cafe music would have gone a long way to enhance the atmosphere.In the(thankfully)limited genre of 'one room levels',this is probably the best." - Orbit Dream (03-Aug-2010)

"A nice room. But no gameplay. Shoot the bartender. Run through the tables. End. Textures were very nice, but just in one room. So I can't give too much points." - manarch2 (26-Jul-2010)

"For a single room, this is good. But anyway, nothing to do!" - Tombhead96 (13-Jun-2010)

"Nothing to do here, except shoot the bartender, if you are so inclined, but I have to say the look & feel of the Cafe is impressive - too bad that this was not expanded into an actual playable level." - MichaelP (12-Jun-2010)

"One room remake of the interior of Cafe Metro from AOD, rather attractive. The bartender isn't belligerent, but Lara will target him with drawn guns, which seems rude. Nothing to do." - dmdibl (07-Jun-2010)

"A one room Test level, but sadly with nothing to do. It is a lot better than Lara in a bow or in the Bronx, for this Cafe is well designed , decored , and good looking. Some of the objects seem to have too much collision and atmosphere is missing." - eRIC (05-Jun-2010)
