What do you get when you throw Aliens, Predators, weapons
from Doom 3, and a rocket launcher that shoots
facehuggers? A freaking Mod of the Week! This one fell into
my lap from the powers above; not God or Allah, but Shipley
threw this at me and told me to review it.
Well, I was a little unsure getting into it. Then the killing
There's new weapons skins, to player skins, to taunts...so
let's take this one step at a time. When you first start
up the mod, you realize there isn't any new background picture,
but you hear the menu music from Doom 3. Nothing
says hard-core like rock music. It is truly a nice touch
on the author's part.
The main thing are the new weapons. There are so many weapons,
I can't really fit it into this review! They range from
anything to Predator nukes to the BFG from Doom 3.
But things I think should get noticed are the double-barreled
shotgun, that has a blast radius of a cannon, and the chainsaw.
Along with the Ash taunts from the Evil Dead series.
It was just...beautiful.
Speaking of Doom 3, most of the Marine's weapons
models were taken from the game; they had been pumped down
graphics wise, but they look alright.
Marine Taunts are taken from Predator, Evil Dead,
and Ace Ventura. I was a little shocked at that
last one, but did laugh a few times. The only person who
didn't get a taunt was the female marine; she still has
her normal taunts, which saddened me; a lot.
Skins? Everyone gets new skins. The teams have been changed
to Marines, Omega Hive (Alien), Dark Blade Clan (Alien),
and Bad Bloods (Predator). Dark Blade Clan looks outstanding.
The same with Omega Hive - they looked great, minus the
Predalien, who was a shade lighter than the others.
One thing I found out was the Aliens had a speed upgrade.
They are faster and go into overdrive when you are in crouch
mode. The only negative thing about that is you can barely
control it; many times, I find myself half way across the
map in a matter of seconds.
The only real negative thing I have to say are the few bugs
here and there (which the author is making up in the next
version, so I won't hold it against him). Plus the fact
that when you're a Predator, the remote bombs--sometimes,
they won't go off with the secondary fire button and you
have to switch weapons to set them off. It was a little
Guns, guns, guns, and a lot of things blowing up. What is
not to love?
As always, that's my review, and I’m sticking to it!
