This not that great. I'm sorry guys but I don't see how this is that great. The levels are well detailed, yes... but the levels are much too large and the gameplay is nothing to talk about. Good details, but the gameplay is severely lacking. 3/5.

While the gameplay is somewhat lacking, the level of detail is extremely impressive, and the mapper managed to do things with faux 3D floors that would leave true 3D floors staring at the ground in shame. 4/5

An amazing showcase of impressive Boom tricks and great architecture. The Gothictx stuff looks really weird and out-of-place though.

I have a hard time rating this because, although the level of detail is certainly impressive, it doesn't actually look that consistently good to me. I just don't think this style of detailing really lends itself well to Doom. Clearly a spectacular amount of effort put into it though.

^^^ sorry, I guess I was too harsh to say it ruined the maps for me. I was frustrated to have to hide from the hitscanners at the start of each map, like a vampire hiding from the sun, since a couple shots can take you down to almost no health. But it turned out to be a different kind of gameplay and that was cool. Still 5/5

Ihnore the desireful gameply in the last review!!
Okay, so I will admit that the gameplay is not
the best of any wad, but it's still good. Only
suggested improvement is a tinse more work on GP.
But the play is still fun. RECOMMENDED!!

Starting with 55 health totally sucks when playing each map from a pistol start. It ruined these amazing maps for me. But I have to give 5/5 because the maps are beyond amazing.

Very detailed, annoying. I kept getting stuck on walls or lost; seems more like an exercise in complexity than an entertainment.

      Great '94 map. Don't be discouraged by the seemingly impossible scenario the map starts your w/! There is a secret area that will allow you to activate a crusher that'll kill the cacos in the first room.   Once you get past that first tense section, the map really opens up. There are some toughish fights in this map, but nothing too frightening - due to the lack of Doom 2 monsters.   The gameplay in this one is superb, check it out! Really surprising how well put together it is, seeing as this one came out before Doom 2 did!

      Good tunes, cool visuals, fun gameplay.

      A very detailed (but nearly microscopic) techbase map.   The detailing is quite good - truly feels like a real place.   Gameplay wise, the map is too small to offer much of a challenge. It took me under 3 minutes to UVMAX. I enjoyed what was here, but really wanted to see more.   3/5

      Decent map w/ a lot of symmetry - but that's to be expected from a WAD based on a real place.   I took it upon myself to look the library up on Google Maps, and you can definitely see what the author was going for architecturally - the library in this map is pretty close visually to the one in real life! It even has the little cube sculpture out front!   Doom isn't the best medium to recreate real places, but it does an adequate job here. In terms of gameplay, the map is very easy! One should have no problem beating this map on UV. The most difficult part of this map is its navigation. It is a little bit of a switch-hunt.   Monster placement is surprisingly good for a map of this type.   Check the map out, and then look it up on Google Maps! You'll definitely see the resemblance! :)

      A bit of a cramped map, but there are many fun fights to see here. This is one of those maps w/ very little room to run around. You better be able to dodge revenant fireballs in close quarters if you are to have success here. This map isn't too difficult, but it is a fair challenge. I'd say it'd be a 6/10 on the difficulty scale today.   There is some mean archvile placement in this map, too. A lot of fights involve hit and run tactics, as there isn't nearly enough room to circle-strafe in this map. Because one can't circle-strafe, the map is far more difficult.   There is one absolutely great trap involving a dark corridor near the end of the map. I don't want to spoil it, as its quite a 'scary' section of the map.   I recommend you play w/ a port that supports MAPINFO, as there is a message at the end of the WAD when you win.   Great map from the early 2000s. Check it out!
