"Here's how to put the TR3 engine to good use. Great design, a huge map and an interesting storyline. Unfortunately, gameplay wise, I felt it was basically not intuitive and I'm glad there was a video walkthrough so that I could take quite a few looks - otherwise, I wouldn't have been so smart as to have finished by now. That's where my 8 comes from in the gameplay and puzzles category. There is at least a rather difficult monkeyswing passage with fires and there may be more hardships, but that's the one I can think of right now. The horrid earthquake in the final part lasted for too long and I really don't enjoy getting all dizzy just because it may suit the story somehow. Other than that, it's all quite well done really. Thank you. And there are still two more objects to find, so I guess there will be a second part that I'm looking forward to playing - only this time less cryptic and no earthquakes, please..." - Jorge22 (20-Apr-2018)

"This is a well-done TR3 level, but in my mind it falls well short of deserving top scores. The repeated backtracking is its most serious flaw, and I couldn't refrain from commenting on it in my walkthrough. The three secrets I found are well spaced and well hidden, but your only reward for finding them is having your health topped off. I recall two shotgun ammo pickups, but the only weapons I found were the pistols, and that was well into the level. My total playing time was close to two hours, so you get considerable bang for your buck. The enemies are two varieties of aliens (one inanimate and the other possibly animate), but I referred to them collectively as sentry robots. There's much swimming to be done in this sprawling game map, which seems rather unusual for a vessel docked out in space, but for the most part everything flows along quite smoothly and I found this to be a fun and moderately challenging playing experience. Recommended." - Phil (14-Apr-2018)

"After 15 years, Dario comes back with another incredible space adventure. I have to say I'm impressed with what he has accomplished here. The space station is very well built and textured, it gives a perfect atmosphere to the game, so does the enemies. There is much care for details and the storyline is well implemented. Gameplay is complex, never gets boring, but there are some places where you can get stuck. I missed another weapon besides the pistols, but that wasn't really a problem. The down point is because there are a few places where the lighting gets cut (and one missing wall texture). Overall, it is indeed the most innovative level I have seen using the TR3 engine. Definitely recommended." - Feder (14-Apr-2018)

"A great level without a doubt..kept me moving constantly since the gameplay is very good, which caught me from the beginning.. The textures used are excellent that fit perfectly with this type of level and makes it very atmospheric, the enemies are ideal for this environment and fulfill a specific mission and deserve to be.. The gameplay is very good in general and deserves to be played, recommended! Thanks Dario for this incredible game!" - McRaider (08-Apr-2018)
