About This File

This is a giant space station in the gray and tech theme. It is crumbling with hellspawn and filled with deadly traps.
This is a little more like I wanted to have the original Vrack. More detail, more metal, more big enemies, less linear. I have spent a LOT of time with this level, so I hope it gets better than its precursor.
But it was a very hard mission. Vrack was believed by many to be one of the best levels ever created. In most aspects, I think Vrack 2 improves over Vrack. But there are some things, such as the caco intro in Vrack, that in my opinion were perfect - and really hard to substitute :| ...
Still, I hope you will find this level enjoyable!

A map I discovered ages ago and still play quite often. This is one of my favourite maps. I love the aesthetics of it - tech/space station. It is much bigger than the first vrack but basically the same, but better. It's fairly old school in style (no slaughtery bits) but can get quite hectic. There is quite a bit of searching and backtracking when looking for keys or switches, but that is no issue usually - especially as the level design and architecture are superb...

 

A definite one to play.

Very nice map, only the end-battle could have been bigger, and there are some mean ambushes. Apart from that it looks and plays great, and you gotta love the cacos owning the cybers :) 5/5

FFS, there's a whole bunch of links near the top of this page. And 5 stars, of course.

Good map layout, texture use, decoration & ambiance. Great gameplay @ UV is challenging with plenty of smart traps (f.e. yellow key vrs 24 revenants: looks impossible, but is quite easy); however, due to the map size the fights gets a bit repeatable, not the least because of the time it takes for causing infights again and again. Cacos versus cybies fights are fun, spiders vrs arachnotrons a bit dull. Overall: solid 4/5.

Almost as good as the first. Or in other words, another excellent level that follows on quite well. It's tougher than the first Vrack, and a little bigger too. Plasma is hidden well on here, so look out for it. Still worthy of a 5 because the fun factor is in spades. -TRRobin.

This map was ok but not that good. It's overhyped
and not as detailed or well designed as people say
but maybe enjoyable to play through if you're bored.

Much better than the first Vrack. Excellent clear design, no monotonous sections, coherent theme, monsters everywhere, couldn't be better.

Whoever wrote that first review obviously hasn't actually played the map.

      Lots of narrow corridors, one of those fake elevators and somewhat boring fights.

      Bland, huge areas, mostly full it, poor item placement and typical Italian emotions in E1M9 because the author could not accept criticism. I think we have come a long way since the troll wad era back in the 2000's, me included. The Gamarra series is pretty much a long forgotten thing over 10 years later.

      Great '94 map. Don't be discouraged by the seemingly impossible scenario the map starts your w/! There is a secret area that will allow you to activate a crusher that'll kill the cacos in the first room.   Once you get past that first tense section, the map really opens up. There are some toughish fights in this map, but nothing too frightening - due to the lack of Doom 2 monsters.   The gameplay in this one is superb, check it out! Really surprising how well put together it is, seeing as this one came out before Doom 2 did!

      Good tunes, cool visuals, fun gameplay.

      A very detailed (but nearly microscopic) techbase map.   The detailing is quite good - truly feels like a real place.   Gameplay wise, the map is too small to offer much of a challenge. It took me under 3 minutes to UVMAX. I enjoyed what was here, but really wanted to see more.   3/5
