Project Eden - going dooowwwwwnnnnnnn [Thursday 17th February 2005 at 9:08 pm]

[Feeling |accomplishedaccomplished]

Well, I finally got round to completing Project Eden. I must say, there are a couple of unexpected plot twists in it (won't go into details here, but let's just say that the reason your team gets called out is not the reason why you end up at the Eden bunker). The final boss was not unexpected, given a cut scene that happens some time soon after the construction yard level. He's a not too much of a pain (compared with the other nasties that swarm around), but packs a mean punch. My personal trick was to drop a few area time shock blasts on him, then pound him with explosive frisbees (disc launcher) until I ran out of energy (only had a couple of batteries). Then leg it trying to suck the energy out of him and his friends that are running round the place, while at the same time avoiding being flattened by him like Amber and Andre ended up (Minoko was too slow to make it out the door with the rest). Rinse and repeat until he dies.

Actually very easy, because there was only him, a couple of spiders, and one of those hyperactive monkey things to fight and it was in a large open area. A lot better than having to deal with floor monsters, those dog things and hordes of mini spiders in, oh, a small corridor with no lighting. Or trying to get everyone to walk along a narrow beam without falling off. And those sentry guns are a right pain, at least until I can get Minoko to the control panel, at which point it's hold the button down until everything's stopped moving and the room is newly decorated in ex-mutated-rat-monster.

Anyway, time to find a new game to bash. Now, what haven't I played recently...

Pfft, if you're going to do LucasArts at least do Day of the Tentacle or Sam and Max.
I still vote T.O.M.E though.
