What Lies Beneath (Spoilers)
 
This episode is a masterpiece. Very holiday-appropriate. The profession-specific objectives. The the...

Spiders! Getthemoff! Getthemoff!

What? Oh, excuse me.

I see a lot of new tech in this mission. Between the voiceovers and the small, unobtrusive text boxes, the lighting tricks, the hovering flashlight.

This is my reaction after one playthrough. But... my God! Great job, Cryptic!

And for a while there, I was thinking that I'd have to contend with Redjack along the way.

Those were exactly my thoughts when Gein started singing.

Outstanding episode, Cryptic!
Seriously...not even Blizzard does Quests this good in WoW.

Same here, in fact for a while there i thought that the were going to retcon that redjack was a devidian.

but yah, i spent the ENTIRE EPISODE phasers out and crouched. I refused to move if my little flashlight went out.

Great job Cryptic.

Biggest Oh Crap Moment:

Being absolutely surrounded by Devidians at one point in the lower levels.

Agreed on all counts. I hope Cryptic will continue to make missions like this one, I don't think the Foundry will allow us to create such epicness. Just one thing ...

I think the flashlight was too dimm. Actually I have a general problem with flashlights in sci-fi: They all suck. Heck, I have a better one myself, why can't they make decent flashlights in the future?

Hi,
I would just like to say OMG this was brilliant. Pure gold and full of suspense. The guy singing was major freaky lol. All gein needed was a knife and to be walk round tapping the walls and i think i would of S*** my pants lol.

as above pure epicness

Nice one cryptic.

I have to agree. I think this was the best mission yet. I especially loved the Doom-esque music following a battle, and the TOS style computer core complete with sound effects.
