Mages Skulls



It's been some time since a really good single player has come along,but at last here we go. This adventure gets away from very familiar castles and battlefields of most SP versions out to play. This time your character isn't BJ and your in some very unfamilar terrain. Starting out up high in the chasms and mountains,this is a very "watch your step" adventure. Including new custom textures,models,sounds and voice scripting."KAT" has mapped out some incredible chasms and caves,narrow passages and..well once you get to your final goal,it actually gets better inside. I hate to give away too much..but inside you change pace gamewise,going from Axis fighting outdoors to the supernatural inside Very tricky secret passages,booby traps,and a very inspired "Indiana Jones Last Crusade" styled..get past the 3 traps to achieve your prize to win! Without giving away any more..JUST GET THIS. Reviewed by Det Pak
