Just one of the central areas in Terraniux reconfigured into an arena/boss fight, it does the job but there's not much else to say about it, and I can't help feeling an original design would be better.

Given what I've seen so far, I'll say that this map has the best Krall-based boss ever. (No, UB, Tonatiuh doesn't really count, the latter is a god and I consider it to be a completely new pawn given how unique it is to experience fighting it :P )
Frankly, Skaarj Tower - The Fall of Seethe could have finished here since the map acts as a climax and the overarching story isn't brought to a conclusion anyway.
I remember playing through this the first time: the tension was palpable and after clearing the surroundings (and finally realising that this is, in fact, a redux of a central area of Terraniux), I confronted the boss - Seethe... and got my ass kicked several times. I made it, but I had to resort to saving in the middle of the fight so as to make reloading less painful. It was stressful! A hard level, for sure. (The hardest map of the pack, IMO.)
Another great map for what remains an awesome pack - just a shame it wasn't continued.

This map's gameplay owns. Too bad that Seethe sometimes screws up his appearance and kills himself in the process.
