News staffers San-J and Steelwind have both completed their first moddb reviews! San-J has reviewed No One Lives Forever and Steelwind has reviewed the much anticipated modification for UT2K4, Lawdogs. Here is some snippets from both of those.
Lawdogs wrote: Audio plays a more crucial role in gaming everyday. Developers are starting to attack more of our senses than ever before. Coexisting with a solid graphical theme, the audio department can take the atmosphere and intensity of an environment to a whole new level. For their first attempt, Lawdogs fashions their audio with successes and inadequacies. One of my favorite additions to the audio is the cliché phrases uttered by the characters throughout the game play. You’ll hear classic lines from western dramas and comedies....

No wrote: NOLF is a true gem in terms of gameplay. The singleplayer campaign's levels span the globe from Morocco, through a space station, to an Alpine Chateau, with many exotic stops in between. Especially notably is one level that involves jumping (or rather being sucked) out of a crashing airplane, and attempting to catch up with a certain someone to steal their parachute, while fending off dozens of parachuting villains. Though this level is a direct copy of the opening scene of the 007 film Moonraker, it has been translated into an interactive format seamlessly.

Thanks guys, and make sure you check them out and give the writers some nice comments for a first job well done! You could also comment on the mod or game! ;)
And thanks to Frawst for fixing up and adding promo images :D
Good work San-J and Steelwind, it sure is good you're on the team.
Love the reviews guys :thumbup: Keep it up! :D
Thanks for the review on Lawdogs. Our next release will address the issues found by the community and fans of Lawdogs.......hardest part of keeping pace is that most of the team members are part-timers or go inactive soon leaving us more delays on completing this project. On the other hand it's a great experience getting a tast of what modding is all about. For most of us it may seem like a fairy boat ride but really it's hectic and hair pulling......
You guys get major brownie points for even getting a beta released to the public, and in working order. You have already surpassed the vast majority of budding developers. Modding as a hobby can be a major strain on one's life, but in all honesty the pride you should feel for accomplishing something so few others do should more than outweigh any negative conocations that modding has unleashed upon you. Great work all around, and good luck in the future.
