I just beat Azteca and it was great! The ending was sad, but still very good. I have one question about it though. Why couldn't everyone escape through the spiral door? The player had the spiral key, and couldn't he/she open it for everyone so they could all live?
its all part of making a good story. morganthe had to have her victories in each world to give the player a deeper hatred of her. It is also the main taunt she uses of not being able to save Azteca. It helps build our character's story, and to remain our greatest loss
