About This File

Still phased after your trek through Korax's homeworld and beyond, rebuilding Cronos has been far from a flawless experience. Much of Korax's minions still wander the world, most unfound by any tasked to slay them.

That is, until one day you get a summons to the town of Riverwood, academic stronghold where all three orders mingle under the root of nature. Korax's minions have regrouped, but under who none can assess.

You arrive at Riverwood to find the town already overrun. This mission is no longer a defense on your part... it's an assault. You swear to the gods that you WILL get to the bottom of this. Readying your strength, you walk through the town gates, which swiftly close behind you....

Solid setting, atmosphere and detailing. Engaging and very well-judged gameplay. It's a shame it's only one map.

Fun map. Easy at first, a little bit harder later, and with a relatively hard boss fight. Appearance-wise, looks a bit repetitive but otherwise nice; reminded me of Heretic city maps. All in all I had fun. 4/5

A good map. I wouldn't particularly say a GREAT map, but quite a good one. Looks very nice, and playing in vanilla the visual glitches are not as bad as the author makes it sound (I've seen worse in vanilla-intended maps). The final battle is not really that hard, if you know effective tactics for fighting that enemy. My biggest complaint is the number of small, fiddly rooms in the "houses" area that don't really serve a gameplay purpose but are just decoration.

A map that is looking very similar throughout, making it hard to distinguish the different areas from eachother. Automap will be quite helpful. The game play is lacking, the item placement is rather bad. Starts off real easy, but suddenly you'll be facing slaughtaurs in pitch darkness, and if you've spent your quartz flasks that you pick up at the start, you are basically up shit creek for the rest of the map. 2/5 Kristus

Great architecture, monster placement was standard but that too works. The end was a bit too diccicult comapred to the rest of the level but it was a well set-up boss fight.

amazing. probably the best ever village/town level for hexen since the original maps (and e1m3-e1m4 from heretic). i gotta agree with another reviwer that the end fight was hard. :-( p.d

      This and the first Scythe have always been my go to when trying out gameplay mods. An absolute classic without a doubt.

      Gameplay consists of getting ambushed by Revenants flanked by Archviles and Pain Elementals while chaingunners chip away at you through windows and on ledges.

      On a start... Heres no medikits or more ammo, you have like 60 Energy cells on your backpack and you can't elimante Cyberdemon using a BFG9000, Even heres many Cacodemons to cockblock marines and send them to D E A T H. Its very funny if you get first time pranked by a Cacodemon and killed yourself. (No offense I'm just bad at joking...) Map is a bit confusing but its very linear and good concept than Terry wads. I rate it 4/5 - Slimz on a nutshell.

      There are about 8 good maps here that could be chopped and changed just a tad to make a good mini-episode. I made the first e3m1 to e1m1 fusion and about half the wad is edited versions of it. Megalyth's is by far the best version, the rest should just be forgotten. Might condense this into something more playable if the authors don't mind!
