      Try this if you really care about seeing some history of early Doom user created levels. But, be aware that we are spoiled with good Doom content, from Id's classic levels to tons of incredible user content. It is hard to be critical though, considering that I have never created a Doom level, and these guys back in '94 managed to create this episode. All I can say about Serenity is that playing it in 2019 after playing all of Id's classic levels and fresh off Eviternity and Alien Vendetta that I was bored to tears by level 4 and had to stop. I'll give Eternity and Infinity a try though.   If you decide you want to give it a go for the history, expect misaligned and inconsistent texture use. Expect uninspired architecture and layouts. Expect confusing layouts with obvious secrets but concealed paths forward. Expect boring fights. While the wad does try some new things, they failed to appeal to me at least.   To sum up, this review would have been a higher rating, but since we are spoiled with Doom content, I really don't think this wad is worth your time unless you really care about history. I was unable to find anything in this wad that was inspiring or fun apart from the fact that this wad was created by pioneers who we owe a debt of gratitude to because they are part of a long tradition of Doom level creation that goes on today and continues to provide me enjoyment and inspiration. So, despite my scathing review, thank you Bjorn Hermans and Holger Nathrath for making this.

      picture this, you've played Eternal Doom multiple times, went through all sorts of nice-looking medieval landscapes, and got rather used to the styles used in the Return resource pack. you feel a feeling that you want to play more in terms of Eternal Doom style levels, well, gaspe has you covered with Legacy of Heroes. it's first few levels aren't too long, for granted, but once you hit MAP05, that's when you know. combat is consistent and workable, as is progression at least until you get past MAP05. you'd especially be hard-pressed for several secrets, specifically the BFG ones in MAP08 (the longest one), and MAP09 (one that is easy to get lost in). heck, MAP07 is also easy to get lost in, hence the title. the dual boss at the end may actually be somewhat disappointing, plus there's some parts of progression which may cause an eyeroll, but for the most part legher.wad does provide a decent experience.

      Hellbound Review   - My second time playing this with a year in between. - UV Difficulty   The Good: -  Has puzzles, which I love! -  Progressive Maps, as in the next one continues from the previous and the Maps are not linear. -  Excellent progressive degree of difficulty. -  Not a slaughterfest, but not easy either. -  Plenty of everything to keep you alert, yet alive. -  Loads of secrets – most are clever and rewarding. -  Awesome Hellish themes in some of the later Maps. -  Later Maps are huuuuuuge; Map 29 (Ascension) must have taken a helluva long time to create, just as the Author states in the description of it. Use your Rocket Launcher and/or BFG when you get to it. The rest of your weapons are obsolete at this point.   The Bad: -  Absolutely disliked Map 30. A whole lot of running around in the “poison lava” pit.   In Short: All and all, Hellbound was a blast. You’re going to work for the keys from Map 21 and onward because they aren’t just lying around.   Map 17 (Starport) and Map 26 (Forbidden Archives) were my faves. I remember reading "Doomworld’s Top 100 Memorable Doom Maps" that Starport was ranked #80. So there ya go!   Despite disliking Map 30, I’m still giving this WAD 5 out of 5 Stars. One Map is hardly enough to deduct from the other 31 awesome Maps. Definite replay value. Bravo! Thanks for making it!

      An excellent E4 replacement. Good use of traps. Window and ledge fighting is common, but complacency invites a hellstorm of imp fireballs from afar. The custom textures fit the eerie aesthetics, although the design is somewhat generic and some maps snag the player along jutted wall lips. Disappointing new sounds as there were no weapons changes, yet are horribly distorted, abrupt, and tonally blase. Nothing a mod can't overcome. Ammo and medkit shortage encourages safe gameplay.

      A mix of good and bad maps. Worth playing for the good. In particular, Map07 by Fatal is a long, but satisfying adventure with sparse doors, U-loops and window overlooks galore, excellent use of button and line trips, and balanced ammo and medkits. Map12 by Epsi would be absolutely superb with more texture variety and a few more interconnecting loops, but still quite enjoyable. Map19 by DaniMetal is tight and overuses sidewalk sector details, but otherwise fantastic level design.
