Exploration heavy first person action game
Montezuma's Return is a totally amazing game that is delivered in 3D, gievs you a whole load of levels to explore, some monsters to take on, but it never is just a random level to level kind of game; at times the game asks you to take the time and calculate where you want to go next. The level design is pretty intricate at times, and pretty expansive, with loads of areas that can be accessed through secretive passage ways and other such areas. Plus, at almost every corner you have a trap, a swinging arm that will get you in trouble if you step on it and so on. It's definitely an unpolished work of art, the way the levels adhere to one another, the way the spikes, the moving platforms and all the other areas communicate with one another. So, you really never feel like you're playing the same thing over and over again; this is quite diverse. Nope, it's not inventive as, say, Portal but it sure is a smart, well produced game. The enemies are kind of shallow and easy to defeat, but they are a bit superfluous at any rate, since the game is ultimately a joy ride through weird and intricate levels. If you love 3D exploration and adventure games, this one is definitely a good one.
