the Lutz levels, again, very detail-oriented, but here he manages some great gameplay. I completely lost it at MAP05 though. some of these maps just flat out drag on more than necessary.

Stylistically self-contained, well-balanced (sans level 3...) partial conversion for DooM. Each level has distinctive challenges and gameplay "theme". Quite atmospheric For non-horror-mod. Perhaps not that scary, has strong sense of uncanny in places. Especially liked the fairly open design of the levels. Theyre pretty mazy, with many approaches and routes. Monsters also often wake far from player and roam the levels. (continued in next post)

Brilliant! These 10 levels are of highest detail possible, and very nice, challenging gameplay. The levels are pretty big on average, so after you're done you'll feel very satisfied as if you've played a whole megawad. I'd recommend this to any doomer, from old school Hell revealed fans to modern zdoom scrpiting freaks, this is something that you'll appreciate regardless of your tastes. I'll be glad to check Phobos: Anomaly reborn from the same author now.

Guys, In case you don't know, Graf Zahl made a patch a while ago so you can play this in ZDoom and Windows. http://www.doomworld .com/idgames/index.p hp?id=13171 I had hoped to someday make an Eternity Windows version, but things have happened to me that mean the chances of it ever happening are pretty much nill. Enjoy, Joel Murdoch Former Chaos Crew Coder.

Even better than P:AR due to slightly better play. A classic!

Yes, this is even better than P:AR. I didn't think P:AR's gameplay was that bad though, I still mostly enjoyed it. Also more worthwhile works from these authors: Inferno, The Dying End (Chris Lutz); Realm of Shades, Demonized (Nokturnus); end1, end2, aaawake (Emil Brudgne).

Fantastic. Challenging when you throw monsters at you when you least expect it. Long levels (I got lost a couple times, but it's totally worth it). I like it when you gradually get weapons, not all in the same level. GREAT level design!

Excellent episode. Great detail, the fake 3d stuff in particular. Balanced and fun gameplay on HMP. Map09 sometimes caused GZDoom 1.5.2 to crash, though (using the cod-zd patch). 5/5 still

I love it! It's better than Phobos: Anomaly Born, mainly because i prefer the overall style used here, and the gameplay was not as frustrating. I mean, the amount of effort that went into detailing is just insane, so if you're a sucker for beautiful architecture (like me), you'll love it! 5 stars. -TeH NeXuS

I'm G. B. Jackson, original team lead from The Chaos Crew. It has been a long time since I have messed with DOOM stuff, and I left the project before it was completed. The team did an awesome job bringing my vision to life and I continue to be thankful for their time and effort. I want to thank everyone for the wonderful comments. It's great to be able to look back and see that a lot of people have enjoyed this... Take care...

Better than PAR. PAR is all flash, no substance. What I mean is that PAR may have great architecture and/or layouts but the gameplay majorly sucks. This wad, though is highly recommended!

It doesn't seem to work right in zdoom. There are red exclamation points floating everywhere. I couldn't run the .exe since I am using Linux not DOS.

Please look for the ZDoom patch (search for cod_zd). As for the WAD, it's worth more than 5 stars! It never ceases to amaze me.

      Doesn't like the layout and monster replacements, I didn't found RL until got the yellow key and found a lot of rockets, the location where RL is confusing me, and it also not fun when you get kicked down from the cliffs by Revenants, Mancubus and Archviles after the way to Blue key door, the way to the teleporter just far enough to kill you if not killed by monsters which kicked you down. Final timed puzzle room just nasty as the cyberdemon and archvile fights in the same place, not sure why make the level so big but can't make the fights with them also on bigger place too?   It's not bad level but I'm sure the frustration level is sky high, and not sure the slopes from ZDooM do anything good to this level too.

      Normally, I don't like DooM (1 or UD) WADs because I tired shooting baddies with shotgun as most of them tend put a lot of shotgun guys/ammo and I have shot those full of shotty shit...well, this one can't escaped from that but I found author's tricky as I didn't found many of them(or they placed when I needed to use shotty), also the monster placements(with middle-tier ones) in this megawad helped too, even E1 doesn't suffers low-tier ammo-droping-fest unlike IWAD and most PWADs.   Level layouts and theme are interesting, some E3 levels just a little mazed but I feel okay, never get lost...many levels I feel plays like IWAD but better and larger, you'll found middle-tier monsters in E1 levels and it helps the gameplay, unlike the IWAD you'll have too much ammo in every level even pistol start, if you wasted too much and will out of ammo for sure(at least in UV).   All I can say about this megawad is...fun,  vanilla fun. Except E3M8, the yellow key area with platforming when all enemies + 4 cyberdemons are try to kill me and battles-of-deal-with-4-cyberdemons-or/and-other-powerful-monsters are nasty to me, on top of them, the final "BOSS"...I feel trolled...really? IoS-style?? IT'S ****ING DOOM, NOT DOOM 2 WHY USE IOS-STYLE AS FINAL BOSS?!  :P (At least there is no respawning monster cubes just annoying cyberdemons and barons...but they're still give me a lot of headaches as the battle area isn't very huge and a little cramped I think...)   But at least IDMUS11 helps me dealt with those problems all, for some reasons I feel the main theme of Power Ranger does fit DooM...don't know why but I keep switch to the theme with IDMUS11 cheat if I don't like the level's music, helps me blast through this megawad and the nasty E3M8. :P

      Download the REAL file here (rd1.zip is NOT correct) https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/megawads/d64d2   Shocked to see so many negative reviews. I had an absolute blast with this one, and I'm not sure what Nems was talking about with the Boom stuff as this runs in Doom2.exe with no trouble. In fact, there is a TON of impressive vanilla stuff going on here. I guess it was so well done that it tricked him.   This deserves a high score. It's a lot of fun.

      It definitely makes Doom look darker, but also slightly changes colors (it reminds me PSX Doom). I prefer original Doom colors and miss how it looked on CRT (almost same colors as with modern monitors, but less brightness and maybe more contrast).

      Great spirit/item placements, and also nice trap placements. Textures are georgeous and scream "1980's sci-fi action movie".
