Bah, the levels feel kinda hollow and scraped together, and not all that impressive unless you have a hard-on for star wars.

Ok, I think you need to improve in the guns. Where's the laser when you shoot the blaster or hand gun? I really hated the blaster acting like a shotgun. Apart from that, it was a kick ass WAD and well made. I'm giving it 4.

Good fun, and actually made me want to dig out Dark Forces again and see if it works on a modern-day PC. Were there ever any Dark Forces level editors? If so, it would be amusing to see someone make a Doom clone with the Dark Forces engine.

After playing the prequel (Dawn - A Prelude) I went back and played Dark Hour again. Thoroughly enjoyable, as before. Like being in one of the Star Wars movies.

Adventure-type TC with stunning 3D graphics (try it @ 2560x1600 :-) ). Gameplay is a bit briefing-based, and works quite well despite the need for some exploring. Overall not perfect, but way better than pretty darn good, so 5/5 for this 2001 (!) wad. RC thanks for creating & sharing this very nice adventure!

This is very nice. I think ammo/health is balanced very nicely. Great new graphics and guns!!! Non linear. Awesome stuff! I feel a bit bitter, though, towards all the walking you lot made me do. I must have been lost about a dozen times (for not too long though) and I had to walk around A LOT to progress. Also, there is too much symmetry. I suppose that can be part of its charm and even realism but I feel it was overdone. Great work tho. 4 stars --- Starburst.

Hey everyone! It is now May 18, 2005 and Star Wars: Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith will be coming out tomorrow, of course. I am going to celebrate by downloading this wad. I recommend for everyone to go out and at least watch that movie. I hear that it will be the best of the new Star Wars series, and may even be rivaling the Return of the Jedi. Anyways, this wad looks pretty good so I'm going to give it a shot!

It was pretty impressive, but to be honest, I didn't like some of the sounds and the new weapons. Some of the sounds, because they were taken straight from the movies, had sounds other then them talking, screaming, etc in them, such as an explosion, or part of the music. As for the weapons, all you really did was change their sound and names, in a pretty poor way too I might add.

      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.
