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.

      Aside from a couple of stinkers (I'm looking at you, maps 20 and 33), this was a pretty fun and challenging map set to play through. For the time limit imposed in order to make these maps, they're of pretty nice quality, I think. While I wasn't the biggest fan of the (in my opinion) overusage of Arch-Viles and Revenants, it was still a fair challenge.

      Disregard earlier review server error caused me to download the incorrect file. So what do I like? The textures combined with the sharp lighting contrast between heavy dark and rather bright areas. What I don't like is the rather empty feeling level with large rooms and corridors filled with medium tier enemies on Ultra Violence, i.e cacodemons and hellknights, while only given a shotgun and chaingun. The issue with this is that encounters become more tedious than dangerous. I would add a super shotgun or spread out the medium tier enemy placement. The level detailing leaves a lot to be desired with the large empty grey rooms/corridors reminding me more of Half-Life than Doom. With some more detailing and better monster/weapon placement I would rank this higher but as it stands this level leaves a lot to be desired.

      the map looks good visually but what does the have to do with doom 64? and how do I kill an archvile with a pistol? and a cyberdemon with a chain gun?
