About This File

The war between Earth and Hell rages on. In the years since the conflict began, Earth scientists have been busy. Newer and deadlier weapons have been developed to thrash the demonic hoards that still threaten humankind. These new technologies are now being distributed among the fighting forces of Earth.

Two new weapons have been field-tested extensively and are ready for use. They are:

1. The Plasma Launcher.

This weapon launches a highly charged plasma sphere at a high velocity. It replaces the standard rocket launcher. The projectile is not an "area of effect" type like the rockets of old. It is instead a devastating "bullet" of energy that can drop a Baron at twenty paces. Its power is roughly equivalent to the BFG9000, but focussed on a single target. This weapon can also be used in close quarters without detrimental effects.

Initial ammo load: 10 charges. Maximum ammo load: 50 charges (w/o pack).

2. The Baron Gun (or B-Gun).

This weapon, a modified plasma rifle, fires a deadly version of "Baron's Fire" (that hideous green energy that has killed so many fine Marines in the past). It is roughly equivalent in power to the older plasma rifles; it is a bit more powerful, however, so the unfortunate limits on capacity the technological revisions have imposed are not that much of a drawback.

Initial ammo load: 40 charges. Maximum ammo load: 150 charges (w/o pack).

Hell Update:

These advances in technology could not have come at a better time. It has just been learned that the pistol-toting Troopers have been given partial invisibility, perhaps in an effort to get some use out of them. Additionally, during the field tests of the Plasma Launcher, a prototype was lost. CyberDemons are now employing them as their main weapon, which does not bode well for us. The projectiles are far faster than the old-style rockets ever were and are five times as powerful.

      This is a solid contender for being the absolute best Megawad that I've ever played.

      I...did not review this, okay. well, it's blue and it's pretty decent and setpiece-y. get used to ribbiks' style and this one is just like all his other maps, very well-designed and fun to play. just watch out for MAP03's final area.

      it's one of those classic 90's wads you can probably just sift through, but it's not that good. plenty of inescapable pits, some awful level progression, and some actually trollish crusher placement lie within this one.

      A few really good maps supported by a bunch of alright ones. Visuals are mostly Plutonia-inspired, with the occasional veering into Shores of Hell type mish-mash architecture. Difficulty is about on par with DOOM2.wad I think. Overall, a rather pedestrian affair, although the standout maps are certainly worth the time.

      BACK TO SATURN X E1: GET OUT OF MY STATIONS REVIEW:   The Good:   - Stunning visuals   - Great monster placement   - Lots of (clever) secrets and they are rewarding   - Enough ammo to keep you going   - The names of the Maps LOL!   - Loads of fun   - Awesome music!   The Bad:   - Not long enough. LOL! I loved it so much, I didn't want it to end!   In Short: I've actually played this fantastic WAD at least 6 or 7 times. Why? This is my second favorite WAD of all time, only bested by its successor, BTSX Episode 2: Fountain of Sparks. I remember the very first time I played it a couple of years ago like it was yesterday. How many times can you say that (in a good way) about a game?   I remember being completely blown away by the architectural designs at the time. I even remember giggling as I sunk in the ocean on the final Map, only to read something like "To Be Continued..." and thinking, "Awww....it's over." But I admit that, like everyone else, I had loads of fun with this.    There is lack of a "customary" final boss (I wasn't certain if this was a "Good" or "Bad" element of the game, hence why it's in neither category above - it really will depend on the player so I kept it neutral). But don't let that deter you! The final "stage" in the last (playable) Map is as memorable as it is wicked, and it'll keep you on your toes just like any other customary boss!   Play this WAD if it's the only WAD you ever play. Definite replay value.   Well deserved Cacoward. Thanks, Team, for making it!   5 out of 5 stars with me.  ~ dylux
