"Another competent alien level from the imaginative Franky. I deleted all the music files except for the secret chimes immediately after I started playing (renaming them doesn't work) so I could proceed in peace and quiet. As in other Franky levels, the FMVs would not play on my computer, but I don't feel that I missed out on anything important. I wish that Franky would concentrate on giving us 40MB downloads instead of 175MB downloads with all the unnecessary bloat. Anyway, I enjoyed meeting up with the Borg, and the outdoor segment where the Enterprise was dry-docked was especially entertaining. There are lots of friendly guards around. Sometimes they help Lara kill the occasional soldier, other times they don't. Nevertheless, plenty of firepower is provided, so you'll hear no complaints from me. The laser sight is provided but never used. Why? Good fun, and recommended." - Phil (09-Nov-2019)

"A slight improvement in the building process for this builder where textures are concerned, as the scenery seemed a bit more pleasant this time around. Gameplay still turns out to be a bit pedestrian, mainly centering around searching out hidden pushblocks and secrets before Lara eventually reaches the rather abrupt ending (at least of this first of two parts). Enemies provide a decent challenge though, and the keypad puzzle was a welcome addition (if you can grasp what it asks of you, of course). It won't set your world alight, but it's a pleasant enough experience." - Ryan (09-Nov-2019)

"Not as colourful as in previous levels, very economic on the anti-gravity spots trademark as well as on the covered grounds to some extent (excepting the outdoor area with the trucks), finding the fuses sometimes depends on finding the secrets and they tend to be pretty hard to spot, the keyboard puzzle is possibly even harder to figure out and the ending is as sudden as it gets (I understand it's the end of part 1 but still...). The general building may have slightly evolved. The sounds and music are fitting and it keeps you busy for a while. It's just less thrilling than (I) expected. This may look like a huge rant but it's only my sincere opinion, so sorry. I enjoyed it nonetheless." - Jorge22 (04-Nov-2019)
