"A laudable attempt to produce a decent Young Lara level, and for the most part it comes off rather well. The main downsides are the unfortunate inclusion of generally empty rooms with little to do in them and the fact that the gameplay doesn't reach any heights of true excellence, with a lot of exploration being the order of the day. The ending also seemed to arrive a bit too abruptly for my liking after just short of 35 minutes net gaming time, resulting in it not being as immersing an experience as it should have been. Nonetheless, the atmosphere and texturing captures the essence of the TR5 Black Isle levels and the three Golden Rose secrets are neatly placed. Not an absolute masterpiece, but a decent enough addition to this contest." - Ryan (11-Nov-2019)

"I always appreciate when builder use real-life mythology in their level and the Harp of Dagda was definitely an interesting read! I enjoyed this Ireland level! Never too difficult, yet enough area's and puzzles to keep you occupied. The level is immersive with lots of stuff to explore (like the creepy skeleton watching over the village). The lightning is very well balanced, especially since Lara doesn't have access to flares or the binoculars. A torch is provides in the beginning, giving the player that little bit of extra light to explore all corners. Textures are well placed, especially considering it's not an easy texture-set to use (imo). The rooms though are a bit of a hit and miss. There are some big empty rooms that take away from the immersion. The smaller, claustrophobic, hallways however really do work. I love the skeletons at the end. Really unexpected and creepy! Got 2/3 secrets. Really liked the one near the end! All in all a very enjoyable raid. Definitely recommend this one!" - Baslakor (11-Nov-2019)
