Reviewer's comments
"At last, a level I think it had a good betatesting; nothing really annoying here except the tricky drops onto the breakable tiles to get one of the secrets, but it's only that: a secret. The names of the items never appeared in my inventory too. The gameplay is fluid and entertaining, there are enough pickups, the enemies are well balanced and the texturization is correct. Pehaps some rooms are too dark (my old monitor?) but I found enough flares. The only "but": how to know the place to use the crank? It should be a camera or so pointing to that place. Recommended for all those TR3 lovers, but don't expect great puzzles. Ah! And don't forget to pickup the crowbar after each use." - Jose (14-Feb-2024)
"I can't tell how well a particular London area is recreated, but I'll believe it is. I thought the game was rather dark at times, or maybe I just didn't like the textures a lot, even though I normally am a TR3 fan. Everything fits, that's true, but there are things I didn't understand what they were for exactly, namely when Lara monkey swings and uses a switch that lowers parts of the ceiling. It made me scratch my head, because really, what was that for exactly? Was it there just to make you waste some time? You can decide to get all the secrets or not, and there's always a reward when you get them (not that you'll actually need them, not on this demo). Ok, maybe I'm sounding too negative by now... I thought it was an ok level, only it didn't astound me." - Jorge22 (27-Jan-2024)
"After creating a different jungle, Reggie managed to create a different London than Core's interpretation of it, and far better I may add! A very impressive recreation of an actual area in London, awesome atmosphere, beautiful and engaging gameplay. Took me 1:30 to finish. It's actually shorter but I didn't want to leave so I kept searching for the last and well hidden secret. Very eager to play the finished project. Highly recommended." - billie2001 (25-Jan-2024)
"Same gripe as with many vertical levels - there's a way to minimize the climbing but if you don't know it in advance, you will probably ascend multiple times the same way, which extends the runtime almost twice. People also told me on stream the game was quiet, which may or may not be an issue to report. Other than that it's a very beautiful and gripping level where you can feel the London vibe just like in Thames Wharf or even better. Hopefully the complete release will hold up to the demo. Recommended." - DJ Full (18-Jan-2024)
"I haven't reviewed a level in ages, but this Demo level has been an excellent one to come back to! I thoroughly enjoyed my time with this level for various reasons. There is of course the theme / presentation. A smaller housing / workshop corner on a river is very underutilized theme overall, especially to be done well, but this level does it. Cranes, Drawbridges, Sheds with corrugated steel roofs, abandoned factory buildings and broken windows, it's all here and it's very enjoyable to traverse across rooftops and balconies. The only thing that isn't perfect is the lighting, the level is a tiny bit too dark overall, but that may just be a TR3 Problem.
Gameplay is pretty nice too. Yes overall it's fairly easy, but given that this is a demo of a longer level series I find the difficulty perfect for the first level in a set. I found all the secrets and gear except for the Grenade Launcher, which is a nice thing to eventually come back to. It all just played very smoothly for a lovely evening level!
I absolutely cannot wait for the final version to come out and to potentially get into more urban industry environments and houses, I'm excited!" - The Snarky Lesbian (10-Jan-2024)
"This is an appealing little slice of TR3 fun. We don't get that many London levels these days, so it was nice to roam around in one as pleasing to the eye as this one was and the little town area especially was really charming. Gameplay is relatively uncomplicated but entertaining enough for the duration, and the secrets are an enjoyable side quest to venture out for. Enemies are few in number and more than enough powerful weaponry is provided if you look carefully. You even get a brief jaunt on the speedboat to bring the level to a close. A very pleasant raid." - Ryan (10-Jan-2024)
