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!

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.

      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.

      If it were renamed "Garbage Dump," I would have given it a better rating.

      A large, but not very prolong map, which is interesting to explore. I liked the author's strategy to place strong weapons in well-protected places. To get them the player need to pass a kind of test. The difficulty depends on the player's luck. It is important not to miss the shotgun at the very beginning, otherwise entangled corridors can lead the player to a situation in which he will be easy prey, left without ammo. Visually, the map looks neat, another good example of using standard textures.
