Originally part of the HOLP 2 pack
A port of Sidney ‘Clawfist’ Rauchberger’s classic from UT99. This is the most faithful reproduction due to the HOLP guidlines and the care of EvilMrFrank. And yes, the girls are back.
The layout remains very faithful to the original. It was always a very good hardcore style map and it does feel at home here in the HOLP 2 pack. All the ledges, ramps and rooms are here as well as the flow. Weapon layout is very similar also. The redeemer is missing though.
The playercount is set at 2 to 6. Dueling may feel a little empty but around 6 is fine. The bots work the map well and visit most of the areas. They’ll give some good competition.
Performance 26/30 (Hardware)
Suprizly varied but for the most part it sat around 40 to 50.
Eye Candy 21/25
Immediately recognisable as Agony. The textures have been reworked and a few fresh ones have been thrown in too and the lighting is done well. Nice to see the angel and devil back again. I remember the fuss they caused when they first made an appearance. Even though the the author seemed to try and make a faithful reproduction I think a little more variety in the wall textures would have helped.
The Details 13/15
Screenshot, playercount and music are here. The lack of story here is acceptable.
Final Score 86/100
A faithful conversion that sticks to the HOLP rules. This in itself helps the oldskool feeling. A little more detail here and there and it would have scored a little higher.
