Review by Kim Robinson on 6th March 2008
An old level but one which has stood the test of time, The Monastery of Darkness takes place in and around a large monastery carved deep into a mountain-side. The whole thing is laced with catacombs and various passage ways - exploring the level is fun and finding the keys is far from tedious. Lighting and shading is pretty reasonable, gameplay shies away from puzzles but focuses on grabbing a couple of keycards and blasting your way through the level. Certainly worth a gander at!
