About This File

Consider this a tribute to the original Doom's E2M2. I always liked that level for some unexplainable reason, and thus felt it neccessary to emulate the style in this map. Even if you disliked that map I trust you'll have different feelings about this one!

All six keys are present in this map, so remember that red card and red skull AREN'T the same. :)

Resources from the Doom betas, Doom64 and Quake2 have been used in this map, as well as some original sounds/graphics by me.

What an absolute classic. There are so many crates and quite repetitive design and yet, it isn't in the least bit boring. Thanks to finely crafted gameplay, monsters, ammo, and secrets placement. Why did I wait this long before playing this? 5 stars.

Large mostly single-themed level. Good map layout, good ambiance, and solid but not to difficult fights. Maybe a bit too long, and imo the cybies @ UV absolutely do not fit, but E2M2 fans presumably will love this one. Overall: solid 4*. BTW @ ^: Flying monster and a Vulcan Cannon??? Have you reviewed a different level?

This is one of my all-time favorite levels! I love the original E2M2, and parts of this map are real bliss! The detail and lighting are excellent, and the music fits the level perfectly. It's a little too big and non-linear, but overall a must download. 5 stars.

Epic map. Over 500 monsters and very intense fights. I liked it. Especially the flying weird-ass monster at end that dropped a cool weapon called "Vulcan Cannon" when I killed him. I played with AEOD 5.29.1. I will give 5/5. -Doomer95

This is dated February 2000. Since playing and reviewing it for the first time I have plowed through Hell Revealed and Alien Vendetta, so the difficulty level now seems very mild. It's essentially several crate mazes with extra bits. The design is on the cusp of the modern era, with a couple of nice touches, but feels very dated. Gets an extra star for having 666 monsters, minus a star for not quite having enough gameplay to justify them all.

A seriously kick-ass level. Too bad GZDoom didn't exist when this was made, or the crates would have been even better. Nice detail, and some awesome battles. Five out of five screaming martians for you. --Illogically.Inclin ed

Four. Extremely, irritatingly hard; it's the kind of level where you pick up a key and BAM, a hundred monsters come out of a nearby wall plus a cyberdemon. Very little ammo and health... but ultimately I played it through to the end just because of the enormous challenge of the thing. Clever use of motifs from the original level.

Great level, very good E2 style, except even more atmospheric than the original. My only complaint is that it's for Doom II. ***** -sargebaldy

People seem to love the cratewars. I do, too. As usual, the start is a little shaky, but once you get a foothold, everything gets better. Mayhem and chaos alone (but it was well detailed, too) earn it 5 out of 5. --prdarkfox

Definitely one of my all-time favourite titles. A lot of effort was undoubtedly put into this.

I wish the author had done remakes for other Ultimate Doom maps. This level is classic.

Dude, that level was almost too hard. I just get a shotgun, fight a few imps. then i say, "this should be a cakewalk!". Then all of the sudden i walk over to this crate, and then like 20 monsters, a baron, and like, all kinds of demons and renevats start teleporting in! They say that you need all six keys but i only needed the yellow card, and the blue card and skull. Maybe i might have jumped or something... 5 out of 5 though. -Kingcacodemon

It is an awesome map and a great tribut to the Doom I level. Too bad the author didn't do a remake of all the Doom maps and then make a megawad out of it, because if he did, the result would probably be just about the best Doom I remake out there!

The dumbass who typed in ALL CAPS should have his balls kicked up into his throat, kthx. That said, this is indeed a spectacular level and...I just love it. It's very well designed, there's an excellent atmosphere throughout the map and the fact that it has all six keys (!) present means you won't blow through this in just five minutes, either. I recommend this map without reservation to any serious Doomer, and most certainly to anyone who thoroughly enjoyed the original E2M2, like me. -DooMBoy

      Another solid mapset that captures the PSX version feel perfectly. Maps comes in all flavors, from techbases and urban areas to the menacing void and, of course, HELL and also has some unexpected secrets which you might play it to see. Of course, I absolutely love the PSX version of Doom and this one is no exception. Gameplay speaking, it's pretty balanced and thought out nicely...with ambushes, good monster placement and really nasty traps which you must avoid it at all costs. One thing that will help you a lot is the addition of a new weapon...seriously, that thing is powerful...check it out and try. Maps have a nice look that helps you to be inmersed in the atmosphere and coupled with the music, it's much better.   Great recommendation, give it a try and you'll have a fun time.

      Since I tested the map, I can say that playing it again it still surprises me the amount of effort and detail of the gameplay used, like a lot of portals, clever effects like the one used before you pick up the yellow key saying nope and many nice references including a special secret. Gameplay itself for combat is pretty straightforward with some nasty stuff for you in the Nightmare difficulty. Try that out by all means. Really solid stuff which I totally recommend you folks and play it.

      When first reading this wad's description I thought this will be a 1994 style map, where someone just tried to recreate his office building to shoot up his colleages. Boy, was I wrong!   Going Down emerged as one of my favourite megawads so far, with its very clever use of small to medium map space and interesting gameplay mechanics in every single map. The first couple of maps start innocent enough, but soon you will find yourself navigating literal crawl spaces, thinking about use of space and / or slight puzzle mechanics just before being thrown into hell itself and fighting for your life. Going Down is designed as a literal descent into hell, which was the most beautifully realized aspect of it. How every map slightly changes into a more and more hellish theme is just great, great design work. Even though the later maps delve into slaughter territory I must admit that I still quite enjoyed it. Actually this was the first time I enjoyed being slaugthered and figuring out how to approach the map.   Going Down is simply an amazing piece of work, oozing quality from start to finish and rewarding the player with incredible elevator music inbetween. A must play.

      Such a wonderful creation! I really wish there were some more maps so this could make it into ZDaemon Thursday Night Survival (TNS) someday...
