"I've always admired the Karnak scenery and thought that it provided the most eye- catching environments in the original TR4 game. This level expands considerably on that theme and offers the players fast- moving and frenetic entertainment. The darkish, night-time atmosphere is well executed without becoming too oppressive, the textures are pleasing throughout and there's plenty of involving gameplay to get your teeth into. The timed sequences are engaging, the jumps challenging without being insurmountable (although in no way too easy) and you are required to think outside the box on more than one occasion. In terms of enemies, it initially starts out rather light in that respect, but don't be lulled into a false sense of security - they eventually turn up. It all culminates in a most dastardly boss battle against a hammergod. Here I felt that the builder went a tad overboard because you have to damage him using spike traps four times. If you don't do it quickly enough, you're not permanently stuck but resetting the levers turns out to be rather obscure. You have to lead the boss into the room he came from and get him to trigger the very end tile, which is no mean feat, I tell you. Still, I appreciated the fact that you couldn't just go ahead and shoot him dead and the resultant climb out of the crumbling temple more than made up for it. Overall, a good all-rounder." - Ryan (10-Nov-2019)
