Playing this mod made me realise DOOM can still be frightening. Amazing title. One little question, though... What is the difference between this version and the other one available right here at the archives? Thanks!

This is a large, atmospheric, and very spartan level that works more as an atmospheric experience than a playable Doom map. It's very dark and the design is simple, but effectively creepy. The asylum is mostly empty, with lots of prison cells. a bit mazey. 100 monsters, spread over a large area. Almost no ammo and health, so you basically have to get it right first time. Excellent sound replacement. Doesn't quite feel like the classic it is heralded as, though.

Wow. You can definitely tell that this came from someone who certainly knew what they were doing. Undoubtably the best WAD I've seen so far, and it's the scariest level I've ever seen in Doom. It's certainly one that I will tell all my Doom player friends about. -- NegaZero

I would have wanted to like this level. It is made with expectional standards. Very atmospheric with good visual design and lots of cool details. But it's darn hard. Maybe i'm just a newb, but temptation to cheat became overhelming. The level also starts to sort of sag somewhere in the middle, as some tricks used start to repeat themselves. Nevertheless I would recommend downloading as long as you're not expecting normal run & gun level.

Definitely the scariest. Can't say the best, but definitely a good job on making it scary. I'd say 5 if you had the amount of detail plunked into Hellcore 2.0. That is the definition of detail.

VERY good, and atmospheric, one of the scariest, most un-nerving wads ever, its very dark, you have no weapons and hardly any health, and youre lost in a huge citadel, while screams of the agnoised prisoners reach your ears..an essential download!

It's atmospheric for sure, but also dark (as in no lights, not goth), mazey, blind mapped, lonely and more run than run n shoot. I'm not as big a fan of exploring as I am of blowing stuff up, and you don't get to blow much up in this one.

Fairly good atmosphere, and some neat tricks and effects here and there, but overall a little underwhelming. 3/5

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
