Today I finally finished THE mission. But what a mission...
If I didn't follow the forum I never would believe that this is a work of a 'few
community members'. Looks more like a product of a group of full-time professionals.
It took me several months to finish (5hrs net playing time, TONS of saves,
trial and error attempts and rude words...).
But let's rate the mission.
It literally feels like an independent game inside a game.
I totally forgot that this is 'just' a mission for TDM, I was just playing PD3.
The storyline behind in combination with objectives are awesome, seem so natural.
The city is huge, architecture and layout is astonishing!!
There are so many ways, secret passages, accessible roofs and water channels
that I was absolutely lost more than half of the time spent there.
Only recently, when I started to notice that 'hey, I know this place, I remember
I was here few weeks ago!!!' - I actually learned that the parts of the city
are connected in multiple ways and I slowly learned to move between them much quicker !
After playing the whole trilogy I just have to put my hat off. A huge acknowledgement
to the authors.
And now I'm going back to the city to explore it more deeply because I know that I missed
a lot of secrets (have looted only around 1700!). And maybe browse this thread to read
some spoilers...now I'm finally allowed to do so.
