Review by Fernando Márquez on 3rd August 2007
Set in a huge city-affair infested with alien vermin in huge quantities, Afterglow: A New World Rising can be classified as one helluvah large city map cluttered with splendid architecture and brilliant gameplay plotting.
Its non-lineality has lead the author to bring support as viewscreens dispersed through the level to guide the player, providing the required help but not assuring the safe next step. While this may be regarded as a way to explore the level, some others may feel it's too much to handle and prove to be very exhaustive.
Regardless of this issue, Afterglow: A New World Rising still ranks as one the author's finest building sprees which cannot be afforded to be missed. Check it out!

There is a bar,Dukes house, cathedral,Queens nursery and research lab,Dukeburger, industrial plant,EDF headquarters,a bank and more... This level is HUGE ! Some of the buildings isn't necessary | to visit. But if you love to kick alien asses I suggest that you explore the hole city. From the start to finish I've implented TV-screens in which you will be shown the next location in order to guide you through the map. If you neglect the TV-screens I'll guarantee that you get lost! The level also is very hard,so I recommend that you save often.. Matter of fact,I died a couple of times myself the last time I played it through before releaseing it!
