About This File

/story After saving the Earth from Hell´s most gruesome spawn, you suddenly found yourself in the unpleasent situation of being the center of the universe, and was very fast overrun by eager and irritating journalists from all over the world. Being famous was not really your wildest dream. The psychological presure got too high -even higher than being blasted 20 feet across a room by an incoming rocket- and you needed to escape; escape the boring and stressing real world. You asked the remaining management of the UAC to find you a hard job among ordinary people, who had not really had much contact to the outside world through the last few years, so that you could put your past behind you and occupy yourself with something totally different than blasting monster limbs through a hallway. Luckyly a mine in the mountains was going to be expanded by drilling from the west side of a mountain towards the excisting east mine. They needed new workers and you were given a job. Even though the UAC could not really understand what a highly decora- ted and famous marine (and world saviour) wanted in a dirty ol´ mine. However they let you go and gave you the job. The work was everything you needed: solitude, dirty talking and hard sweaty work.

After a couple of weeks, which fully satisfied your needs, you notised that the Employer always carried a red key on him and he never left it out of sight, much to your suspicion. And sometimes he used it to access the control room in the mines. That was not really the weird thing, the weird thing was the secret door you once saw him enter! And how come the east mine was a restricted area. Something was going on behind these rocky walls and it was not digging. This mine was not only a bit of lava and a rusty drill.

One day, when you were out breathing some fresh air, a terrible and thundering quake shivered the earth under your feet and numerous screams reached you from within the mine. Something was very wrong, very very wrong.

You grap your sidearm and cannot help relating your present feelings to past experiences. And now you come to think of it, you once heard from a drunk security guard from the UAC, at one of the numerous parties celebrating your heroic homecoming, that the UAC were still conducting the same experiments, which lead to the alien invasion of Earth, at some moun- tain top in the desert. Of course he was drunk, so you took no notice of his babbling. However, now it all made sence. YOU were on THAT mountain.

And it is a cooinsidence the fact that YOU are on that mountain sent there by that UAC? Does the east mine at all exist?

Whatever the answer might be, a closer look might be the only thing left to do. And actually, you were getting bored with working a drill and a shovel. The silent, but steady sound of growling and mumbling makes you silently, yet firm and determined say to yourself: "Lets make that trigger hot again..."

      Aside from a couple of stinkers (I'm looking at you, maps 20 and 33), this was a pretty fun and challenging map set to play through. For the time limit imposed in order to make these maps, they're of pretty nice quality, I think. While I wasn't the biggest fan of the (in my opinion) overusage of Arch-Viles and Revenants, it was still a fair challenge.

      Disregard earlier review server error caused me to download the incorrect file. So what do I like? The textures combined with the sharp lighting contrast between heavy dark and rather bright areas. What I don't like is the rather empty feeling level with large rooms and corridors filled with medium tier enemies on Ultra Violence, i.e cacodemons and hellknights, while only given a shotgun and chaingun. The issue with this is that encounters become more tedious than dangerous. I would add a super shotgun or spread out the medium tier enemy placement. The level detailing leaves a lot to be desired with the large empty grey rooms/corridors reminding me more of Half-Life than Doom. With some more detailing and better monster/weapon placement I would rank this higher but as it stands this level leaves a lot to be desired.
