A sci-fi FPS in which a space mercenary searches for his lost friend from the box art. Things aren't looking too good. You'll never navigate off the planet on your own. Plus, all the heavy weapons have been taken by the assault team leaving you with only a pistol. If you only could get your hands around a plasma rifle or even a shotgun you could take a few down on your way out. Whatever killed your buddies deserves a couple of pellets in the forehead. Securing your helmet, you exit the landing pod. Hopefully you can find more substantial firepower somewhere within the station. As you walk through the main entrance of the base, you hear animal-like growls echoing through the distant corridors. They know you're here. There's no turning back now.

Awesome game, even after all these years. Shooting things is very satisfying and since managing ammo becomes pretty important in Ultra-Violence, it was interesting for a second playthrough after doing Hurt Me Plenty. Episode 1 has absolutely perfect level design, but it gets a little worse towards the end. I consider Mt Erebus (E3M6) to be the low point, though I really enjoyed Gate to Limbo (E3M7) as a prelude to the ending. The final boss is a joke with the BFG, but it was decently enjoyable if you abstain from using it.
Quite replayable, and the multi-player and the mods make me love it even more, even if I can't factor them in my rating. One of my favourite games, with all its shortcomings.
