Finally! I finished playing The Fifth Vortex
Have a lot of impressions, most of which are totally positive!... There were may be a few minuses as for me... but in the whole, I liked this addon very-very much!
I myself prefer to play Unreal addons exactly like yours - not too epic, not too long, made in the original game style, but individual and well thought-out. The Ehactora's story is a good example of this kind. (I don't like global but unauthentic mods like Operation Na Pali, or 7 Bullets. There is something interesting in there too, but I just love the original spirit and more...classic approach to the story.)
Well, to be short, let me list my pros
of "The Fifth Vortex":+
deeply atmosperic, very Unreal
interesting and authentic story
very high quality of mapping
attention to the details
sound design/music selection
lots of puzzles (pretty easy to solve though)
incredibly cool-looking scripted events
cinematically staged scripted scenes (looking good, and not ruining the atmosphere! that's important!)
....and such a fabulous ending!... (I was literally screaming "Wait, what?! That was MY ritual Skaarj!" when O'Neal dropped him down XDD )-
....well, sometimes there were a little too many closed doors opened "somewhere else"...
the Moon texture on the 5th map seems kinda out of place...
And nothing more to say here!
So... Doublez-Down, Teridax
, and co-workers! You guys are sooo awesome!
Thank you for making this mod.I wish you mapped for 'Another Reality Project'.
I mean it. I'm serious.
