Aeon is a simple arena fight which could have benefited from better pacing and not have concluded so abruptly. Back in Time approaches a neat time travelling concept but combat is weak and easy. Investigation provides engaging and well paced combat, while Rising Lava creates a good concept that remains a constant threat, enemy usage creates tension and has fantastic design.

Manages to remain an enjoyable experience through its varied encounters and increasing hostility during progress, accompanied by high quality visuals across two different texture schemes and providing a tense atmosphere through its choice in lighting. Solid map all round which feels similar to the vanilla levels.

Eight action packed maps, offering a variety of themes with good design all round. While the combat is a little on the easy side, the run and gun mechanics are handled well despite the infinite ammo, to keep a constant pace when mowing down waves of enemies.
