About This File

Your trapped on that infernal moon base as usual. You've gotten to the point where you take out most everything that comes at you without blinking. You've become careless. You round a corner and meet a hail of fire and gunshot, and you're dead. You wake in a dark hole, awaiting the time when the denizens of hell will come and take you away for a permanent more-than-luke-warm bath of fire. BUT HEY! Just because you're dead doesn't mean that you can't still kick butt! After all, going to hell for real didn't take away your shotgun (and they say you can't take it with you). You scrounge your way out of the dark hole and see a fortress in the distance. If you can reach it, then you can reclaim your lost soul from it's round blue container and free yourself from Purgatory.

This wad was created by a guy who would later work in the game industry. E2M1 is a quick, dull opener but E2M2 is a large map with 460+ monsters to blast through. The texturing is ugly, the detail is low, and there's an overabundance of ammo, but the map is really fun anyway. 4/5

Very tight game play here for levels from 1994. Level 2 offers various interesting traps and fights and the relatively low amount of cover can wear you down. The appearance of the level is also pretty cool, if rough, with that Gigerish texture giving the fortress an unusual "alien" appearance, and there's a good combination of relative darkness and torture-like textures inside. A minor issue is that you can get stuck in those rooms from where barrels come out in map02. [4/5] ~Chain Mail (03/2011)

The first level in this set is a short, fast-paced 'starter' level, so to say, with an interesting end. Good use of lighting and textures. The second level utilizes every element of the Doom game to it's fullest extent. Superb lighting and textures with a great balance of ammo, health, and monsters. These are extremely well-made levels that are definately worth downloading.

Umm these levels look like something that came straight out of the 94' archives, except the detail isn't even on par with that era. I will however say the gameplay is definately above average and will keep you moving..

This is dated September 1994. For something that's thirteen years old it's very impressive; well-designed (although crude), with loads of monsters, far more than most user-made wads of the period. E2M1 is a trivial nothing that fits the plot and makes you start E2M2 with a shotgun. E2M2 is huge and surprisingly tough. The design work is decent - good lighting, poor textures - but with a bit of polish it would have been a stand-out in Thy Flesh Revealed.

Fun to play. Yeah, I did it on UV; 100/96/100 40:07. Go me! (ok, had some hard times, so don't forget to save from time to time)

I clearly remember playing this wad from a CD compilation years ago. Good maps; they feel sort of Episode 4 styled (though they by all means predate E4.) The design is right for the map size and play is fun (well-balanced.)

      JENESIS REVIEW:   - Single Player - UV Settings - Pistol starts every Map - Third time playing in about 4-5 years span   The Good:    - Continuous Maps    - Great architecture    - Incredible Hellish themes    - Excellent monster placement    - Clever puzzles    - Loads of secrets. Most are clever as well.    - Great music    - Lots of stuff to get you alive and stocked    - Levels are just the right size. Not small nor are they huuuuuuge.    - Not a slaughterfest, but not easy either. Difficulty is perfect for single player.   The Bad:     - There's no Jenesis II.    In short:   Sometimes, finding a new DooM WAD to play is like finding a decent horror movie to watch: You're going to go through a few crappy ones before you find one that makes it all worthwhile. Jenesis is one of those WADS to play that's worth going through some crappy ones first.   If you are looking for a great balance between dog fighting and puzzle solving, then Jenesis is for you. This game was fun as hell - every level.    Anyone who plays this can easily tell that MUCH work went into this fantastic game. It's WADs like this one that keep me playing. Bravo Mr. Paddock!   You have huge shoes to fill, Jenesis - for my next WAD I play. One of my all time faves. Well deserved Cacoward. What a game! :)   5 out of 5 Stars.

      The best thing to come out of 90s mapping by a long shot, in fact Memento Mori II is probably among the top 10 megawads ever even now, and certainly the only release from the pre-Alien Vendetta era about which I would dare to make such a claim.   The level design here is far tighter and far more professional than that of the first Memento Mori, the only potential exception to this rule being the somewhat strange "Base Exposure". You can trust that there are no baffling offerings in the vein of "Kinetics" or "Cesspool" to be found here. Superior level design aside, visual and thematic progression throughout the Megawad is also far better organized.   As a matter of fact, aside from the comparatively lower difficulty and pervasive presence of puzzle-like level progression, Memento Mori II often feels just as well-conceived and dynamic as a modern PWAD would, making it far, far ahead of its time is that sense.   It is quite unfortunate then, that among the three Megawads released by the Memento Mori crew, those being Memento Mori, Memento Mori II and Requiem, this second installment is by far the least frequently praised and certainly the least frequently played. As it turns out, it is by far the most challenging, but also, more importantly, the most consistently GOOD of the three.

      wow this was...mostly annoying, utilizing such tropes such as low ammo, lots of running around just trying to find the best weapon to choose, and mancubus snipers. I felt trolled. at least Jimmy is a good mapper though. MAP30 was the best map overall.

      IMPORTANT: DO NOT launch the file "AVMOVFIX.WAD" when playing Alien Vendetta. All it does is remove one of best portions of MAP20. That file was conceived as a fix for demo recording back in a day when processors where much less powerful, and despite being included in the download serves no purpose whatsoever in this day and age.   -----------------------------------   An epic experience in the most genuine sense of the word, Alien Vendetta's long-standing reputation as the most legendary Megawad of all is entirely deserved, although it isn't quite my number one choice. Variety, quality, creativity and spectacle abound in just about every moment of this very lengthy, challenging adventure.   Indeed, it should be clear that even now, in 2018 as of me writing this review, Alien Vendetta still belongs to the realm of the fairly difficult by today's overall PWAD standards. However, this absolutely shouldn't stop any curious players from trying it out, because the content offered is absolutely, positively worth it. In fact, although Alien Vendetta as aged a little, it holds up much better than most of its contemporaries and many of the old classics so lauded by the community.   As a negative, I will say that I don't think I approve of that final boss map, which calls upon skills that are never necessary in the rest of the Megawad and generally not a priority of classic Doom gameplay, all the while demanding a very exacting display of said skills from the player. Also, if I really have to nitpick, then I will concede that a couple maps contain very clumsy moments ("Nukefall"...).   I will give away no more and let the rare few Doom 2 players who have not yet experienced this masterpiece discover it for themselves. Highly recommended.

      Well-crafted atmospheric levels, as is par for the course for Eternal's better releases. Unfortunately, MAP02 suffers from the same main issue as MAP02 of Epic, which is to say an overabundance of empty space which the player has to constantly backtrack through while figuring out the map.   The map design here is not on par with Eternal's highest quality releases such as Frozen Time or Hell Ground, be it in terms of visual spectacle or player progression. Neither is the challenge, by which I mean that this is a fair bit easier than the two WADs mentioned above.   Still, although these two maps are definitely no Award-level material, they are satisfying overall and worth playing through at least once.
