Fantastic wad - very beautiful and atmospheric. The gameplay is based on some clever puzzle-type features, so give yourself plenty of time to savour this one. Monster-wise, it's quite gentle. x
Amazing fun and good architecture and didn't confuse me as much as other big riddle wads, even though for a little while I was still wandering around.. 5/5 - Optimusx
This is more than ten years old. You get several .bat files, but you can just run the .wad with e.g. Zdoom, and it works. The level has lots of new textures that look cartoony nowadays, but the lighting and layout are good, but a bit aimless. It's interesting to see a gothic library in a level presumably started before Doom II came out. The gameplay isn't bad, bit dull; there's a clever lift puzzle, a horrible stone catwalk puzzle. Very wandery at times.x
I love this map. Maybe a little confusing at times, but great overall... - 5/5x
Could be part of Eternal Doom... but would be one of the weakest maps in the set. I liked the locked door texture and that's all. This map is huge, empty and easier than Fava Beans (play it on -fast or yawn when playing). Not bad, just boring and - for me - lacks atmosphere. For big castle-like maps, download Eternal instead and play maps 07,11,19... 2/5 stars, vdggx
