Pros:

-Theme and atmosphere are top notch.

-New weapons are fun to use and very creative.

-Extremely high quality texture and sprite editing. Can't commend them enough for this. You can barely tell you're playing DOOM.

-Level design is great overall, no maze-like levels or puzzles that take eons to solve.

 

Cons (mostly trivial):

-Story is really simple, kinda dumb, and frankly unnecessary, but it doesn't get in the way too much.

-For me, very hard to read numbers on the HUD. I couldn't tell the difference between 4s and 9s, for example.

-Very scarce health pickups and too many armor pickups, I often found myself at 1 health and 200 armor.

-Second phase of the end boss fight was pretty difficult to figure out, cool idea but could've been shown to the player better.

-Hard to tell when you're actually hitting an enemy with the bow/axes. Seems like they'll only do their pain animation and lose some blood half the time, and the other half, you get the *ting* noise that normally plays on a miss, but you actually did hit them.

 

Overall, great wad that is very much worth your time. It's obvious that a lot of hard work and love went into making this.

I really like the concept, but the execution could be better. Still I've enjoyed it.

An under-appreciated endeavor that still holds up to this day. Nice work.

A good idea, executed poorly. Gameplay is horrible, the monsters are unbalanced, and well, ugly. So are the textures. Health and ammo status is not obvious, in fact, you have to decipher it. You don't know what the pickups do that you pick up, and so on. I give it 3 stars for the effort. It would deserve 2.

Very creative mod, interesting designs (maps and sprites), let down a little by the short length and a very slightly garish quality to the textures and sprites. I wish there was more of it. Another superb production by LittleWhiteMouse! 4/5

very awesome TC with nice weapons and other things. too bad it's too short to be lots of fun. oh, and to beat the last boss, you have to trick him somehow, but he is very uncooperative and it still took me forever.

It's cool when you first start, but once the Egyptian theme gimmick wears off, it's just kind of, boring. Enemies take FOREVER to kill with the ax, and you're stuck with it for a while. Plus, you die way too easily. Also, the story didn't reel me in at all and didn't interest me, so it just seemed very long. It also didn't help that all the levels looked the same. I say, this should've been a cool gimmick 1 map wad.

I am NOT a fan of this. The Doom feel is nowhere to be found. I know this would take some time and work to make but I would have to call it a waste of time. I'm sorry but it's like a video game from 1989 or something. 3/12/07

!!WOW!! This a ?ucking excellent TC ! One of the best I have ever played. Everything is changed to an Egyptian theme, not a single doom texture is present. Excellent work, excellent gameplay and the bosses rule. A weel deserved 5/5 - PerOxyd

First class TC. I liked almost everything: great visuals, egyptian atmosphere, very enjoyable and challenging gameplay. It's very short, but it's fun from start to finish and never once boring. 5/5

I must admit, I'm rather impressedby some of the DeHaCked work, but the 3D characters really get on my nerves. I've seen 11 year olds do better 3D art. My only suggestion is to stop using all those 3D sprites.

How are people having trouble with this WAD? I have to play on Hard for a decent challenge, and the gameplay is far from uninspired. Next to Bittersweet, it's probably the most fun I've had with the game, period. 5/5 ~MI

The point is telling the bad points and how you can improve!!! This wad is like a combination of Heretic and Serious Sam. Okay, maybe not Serious Sam action that much but the architecture looks like it and the weapons are as creative as Heretic. Now here are the bad points, some levels are a bit boring. Sorry, I had to say it. What's boring about the levels you ask? The same settings over and same enemies and simple layouts in the levels that sort of ruins the gameplay, you know Egyptian?

How the hell do you beat the final boss? Other than that I had fun playing this TC.

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      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.
