This is Jed's second Quake2 release, his first being Burial at Sea which scored a 78. This time it's just one level, but quite a good one at that.

It starts off with you in a run-down part of the city, with buildings in the distance and in front of you and old whorehouse. After find two keys the basement of the whorehouse leads to an underground hidden base. From here the level completely changed, from that unique city to the typical Quake2 base map which we've all seen before. That isn't to say you won't want to see it again, there was some very nice archictect and level design.

The gameplay was good, featuring around 70 enemies. At times there would be tricky situations such as two Gladiators. Overall it is not the longest level around, but it certainly was a blast and looked very good.
