Why Should I Play The Ball Hueca? Find out in this mini review!

Posted by Henley on Sep 7th, 2009

The Ball Hueca is the latest release of the award winning series which has both taken high praises from both the ModDB Staff and the judges from the Make Something Unreal Contest, with such high expectations just what can you expect from Hueca? Read on to find out.

Hueca is the 4th part to The Ball series that follows a geologist who gets stuck in a cavern and bumps onto an ancient and Mesoamerican complex holding a mysterious ball, this ball is used to navigate through the underground environment and to solve platforming puzzles in order to travel deeper into the complex. The latest edition to The Ball's universe gives more uses to the balls power with the ability to power a vehicle and to create a low gravity spear around the ball itself, kinda light on the combat in comparison to older releases but still very interesting. Hueca also toys with the idea of an open environment that you can explore at your own pace with 3 pyramids needing to be "powered up" before the player can finish the expansion.

The Ball Hueca, like all the rest of the balls releases is very polished and a very unique experience that you can only find on the UT3 engine. If you have not played The Ball at all you will be very surprised to hear that with each release Toltec Studios makes they also update previous versions, like new voice acting, challenge levels and the ability to save your game! Definitely worth your time regardless of if you have played the previous versions or not.

Heheh, CDs & DVDs are soo old school. Steam baby.

Great game, great mod. They blow my mind every time they release something. I wonder when EA will start making as good games as modders do? Maybe one day if EA tries really hard they can strive to be as good as the hard working modders seen on this website.
