ModNMod - No Mercy Review: Show No Mercy! (0 words)
I am positive that the no mercy level designers know how to map, but I think they need to spend some time adjusting the maps to the gameplay.
In the snowy map, when in the alien base, the lifts had no light at all, and this was pretty annoying.
Since No Mercy is a TC, I would prefer a not-so-frequent use of original UT2K3 sounds.
Slayer - Show No Mercy review (0 words)
Show No Mercy and the ones that follow, through Seasons In The Abyss, would help establish the thrash blueprint.
Songs sound rushed, levels don’t sound right, drums are too loud are all problems plaguing this album in various places, but if you haven’t heard Show No Mercy yet you owe it to yourself to check it out.
Well, this is that album for me. I'm convinced that if I could listen to Show No Mercy 24 hours a day...every day...for the rest of my life, I would still absolutely love it.
