Re: Rate the Legends Room - Day 33: Pit of Despair (Rope Swing)
« Reply #195 on: April 07, 2013, 12:37:55 AM »
I gave the Pit a 6. This room pretty much set the precedent for the Pit of the Pendulum. It was more user friendly towards the contestants where they didn't have to climb the wall anymore. There were a couple of memorable moments in this form of the Pit too - from Tarrah's messed up jump to Jason using the Dog Leash to reach the rope. I think this is my favorite form of the Pit after the Pit of the Pendulum in S3. At least the contestants still had a choice on where to go in this one. But it was still basically a hit the actuator room when we get down to it.

Yeah, I also gave it a 6. It just fit very well with the overall Season 2 layouts.

I gave the PoD a slightly lower 5. Nothing really special about it, but it did have that nice look to it that made it blend well with the rest of the S2 rooms.

And the Pit of Despair gets a 5.75.

Next up is the Pirate's Cove.

Re: Rate the Legends Room - Day 34: Pirate's Cove

I gave the Pirate's Cove a 2. This room was so lame and a useless waste of space. The whole Pirate wheel was so lame and looked silly. For some reason, it just made the temple look childish. It was nice for a team to have to complete an objective to enter the room below, but this one was too easy. It was like something you see at a playground. And I like how there is no mention of the Torch Room objective for contestants who enter this room from below. Even Kirk didn't know what to do in the "Delphi" run until a good 20 seconds passed. So you wonder why Jackie got confused in that room. Lame room, lame name, and a lame objective. :roll:

I gave the Pirate's Cove a 4. It wasn't that great of a room.

And the Pirate's Cove ends with a lowly score of 3.00.

Next up is the King's Storeroom.

Re: Rate the Legends Room - Day 35: King's Storeroom
« Reply #202 on: April 08, 2013, 11:45:27 PM »
Instead of doing separate polls for the two different King's Storeroom, I combined them into one poll. You can base your vote for both King's Storerooms in one vote.

Here is how I rated it:

King's Storeroom (S2) - 9/10
King's Storeroom (S3) - 7/10

The King's Storeroom was both a very memorable and innovate room of the temple. The objective was very unique and also did challenge the player on top of that. Some contestants got lucky with finding the key on the first try while the other contestants found it a third time. I like the S2 version of this room more because it was more memorable IMO and I enjoyed it more when the contestants smashed the pots with their hands. The S3 version was too dark and I didn't like the camera angled used in that version of the room. Plus, the pots looked cooler in S2 also. And don't lie, you secretly wanted to smash the pots in this room to. ;) Overall, I give this room an 8. It was a great room.

I also gave the King's Storeroom an 8, for the same reasons as TRJ. The separate rooms themselves also get a 9/10 and 7/10 for the Season 2 and Season 3 versions respectively. I definitely preferred the Season 2 version, and yes I also wanted to smash those pots myself. :lol:

I will end the King's Storeroom time a little early. It will finish with a 8.20. (Last second vote :lol:)

Next one up is the Mine Shaft.

Re: Rate the Legends Room - Day 36: Mine Shaft
« Reply #205 on: April 09, 2013, 07:17:11 PM »
The Mine Shaft was pretty much like the Well, but I found this one better and more memorable than the Well. The room color in S2 looked great and fit the theme of the room. There were also more memorable moments attached to the Mine Shaft. Riding the elevator was never a good choice for the contestants, but that was the sang of this room and usually only the poor choice makers rid the elevator. I gave the Well a 3, so I am going to give the Mine Shaft a higher score. It will get a 5 for being more creative and memorable. The Well was just lame. :roll:

I also gave the Mine Shaft a 5. While it was a MUCH better room than the Well, it ruined too many victory opportunities for some teams.

Another 5 from me. Nothing really special about the Mine Shaft, but it was a step up from the Dungeon and the Well.

I'm sorry, but the Mine Shaft gets a 2 from me. Bland waste of space with a slow-ass elevator that ate up too much time. What a lame room.

I am going to be gone for most of the evening, so I am ending this poll earlier than usual. The Mine Shaft will finish with a 4.40.

Next up is the Tomb of the Ancient Kings.
