The question we all should be asking is: 'Who thought this was a good idea?' And more importantly, how did this get past testing? How did anyone look at this and say, 'Yes! A semi-blind jumping puzzle that requires precision jumping in a third-person shooter. That's what's going to win us awards.' I guess it'd be the same people who thought that they could hold a company down for 10 years based on [[VideoGame/MaxPayne two game]] [[VideoGame/DukeNukem franchises]], [[VideoGame/DukeNukemForever one of which has become the punchline to a joke everyone is sick of]].

You've been through [[GreenHillZone meadows]] and [[ShiftingSandLand desert]] and [[UnderTheSea water]] and [[TheLostWoods forest]] and [[BubblyClouds sky]], all since level 1.\\
Now is the time for your talents to shine\\
As you brave the tundra a ton.\\

Oh, we're struggling through the cliche ice world,\\
Death-defying jumps!\\
