Love! True love! 
I'd like to start by saying I thoroughly enjoyed this game, and that it was my favorite entry into the Carnage Contest.

-Story-
Honestly, I wasn't expecting games entered into a Carnage Contest to have much of a plot at all. I was wrong. This game actually had quite an interesting story, and as I played I looked forward to finding out what was going to happen next. I don't want to spoil anything, but I will say the story was good, and complimented the gameplay very well.

-Gameplay-
I think the gampeplay is what I liked about this game the most. Marpro didn't add very many new things (he did add some cool stuff though), but he utilized what he had in very unique ways. I also felt that some of the fighting may have been too difficult, but I only really had trouble with the boss. However, he only came across as challenging, not an invincible death machine.

-Graphics-
The new graphics were implemented very well. They were subtle additions, and while easily noticed, they fit right in with everything else.
The boss was done well, and with a model like that, it surprisingly fit everything just right.

-Summary-
In conclusion, this is a great game. Short, sweet, and enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this game to others.
