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.

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.

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.

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.

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