Review by Cheetah

Overview

Text is fine, as is the title. The polish flag in the picture looks odd, but it illustrates that the author wanted to polish his mission.

Intro

Quite a lot of attention has been spent on the intro. However, it is unpleasant to watch, as the textures refuse to load seemlessly. The author added a few nice splash images and is significantly longer than the original intro. I prefer a shorter, but working intro. With more time devoted to them, these issues could have been fixed making the intro more enjoyable.

Briefing

For a revised version, there are too many (spelling) errors in the briefing. Also, links are missing to go from the details pages back to the plan. Other than that, map - notes and plan sections are alright.

Mission

Immediatly after loading a dialog is displayed giving the player a choice of which time to attack. Though limited, I appreciate the effort put into it to make the mission replayable and more difficult. The mission has no real bugs, except that your car can be blown up by one of the many patrols roaming around the checkpoint. Be sure to keep it intact as you will need it! This is something that the author shouldn't have overlooked. A lot of small scripts are present: soldiers busy with kung fu, sleeping and some Humvee patrols. Well done!

Outro(s)

A news reporter tells the tale in the outro with decent voiceover. The outro, albeit enjoyable, was too short and unfinished.

Special

The amount of scripts and decent voice acting make the mission more enjoyable.

Overall

A failed attempt of the author to improve this mission beyond its original value. While the additions are welcome, they don't compensate the many spelling errors and bugs present. The mission is a nice meal for everyone who hasn't got a bite of it already - if you have, better download another mission.
