Not five stars compared to modern maps.  Despite the late submission year, this wad dates back to May 29th, 1994.   I got it on an add-on CD in 1995.   Five Stars for its time to bump up the average as this was one of my favorite classic wads of its time... So much so I messed around adding scripting with more switches to manipulate a spawn number by its digits and spawn whatever there's a number for.

 

And here are those scripts for seven different switches to execute, though I recommend limiting selectible numbers.   And you could do something more involved like summon groups of monsters and implement the thing hate command to make them fight.

#include "zcommon.acs"

int haha;


SCRIPT 20 OPEN
    {
    haha = 154;
    }
        
SCRIPT 23 (void)
    {
    haha+=1;
    printbold (d:haha);
    }
    
SCRIPT 22 (void)
    {
    haha+=10;
    printbold (d:haha);
    }

SCRIPT 21 (void)
    {
    haha+=100;
    printbold (d:haha);
    }

SCRIPT 26 (void)
    {
    haha-=1;
    printbold (d:haha);
    }

SCRIPT 25 (void)
    {
    haha-=10;
    printbold (d:haha);
    }
    
SCRIPT 24 (void)
    {
    haha-=100;
    printbold (d:haha);
    }

SCRIPT 27 (void)
    {
    printbold (d:haha);
    Thing_Spawn (random(3,6), haha, 0, 7);    
    }

Decent 1994 WAD with some alright use of textures and nice swarm of monsters when you hit all the switches at the center part of the level. It's pretty standard as far as gameplay goes, it has a few optional areas you can go to but otherwise, it's short and linear. Compared to many other levels around the time, this isn't too bad.

      This wad seems to be a compilation. Anyway, here goes the per-level reviews: An average dock level. Water hurts. There's an unusual way to wade through this water to open some barriers. Overall pretty blocky and not that well done. It's plagued by REJECT errors causing most monsters to be passive against you. A dungeon level made of copy-pasted layouts. Overall much better and more slaughter-like than the previous map. Relies on switches and passages for the greatest part. An even better and much harder level. This one involves some wicked layouts of passages and lifts, and uses symmetry to its advantage. Overall, some super challenging levels but not very strongly structured, rather on the more abstract side.

      The original "Eternal Doom," which makes up the first 12 maps of this Megawad, is an absolute must-play masterpiece. The levels are huge, yet finding one's way about them is an enjoyable task rather than a maddening chore. Hexen and Heretic both have beautiful textures, and the maps use them to great advantage to create sprawling medieval architecture and display some of the best environmental story-telling present in any wad I've ever played.   However, that praise does not carry on to Eternal Doom's two expansions, dubbed, "Eternal Doom II" and "Eternal Doom III," created by TeamTNT, which make up maps 13-32 and are, at best, an incredibly mixed bag and worst--well--painful. Beautiful architecture and intuitive layouts are traded out for strange abstract maps with misaligned textures and an overall quality that feels better suited for something like "D!Zone."   Most of the maps aren't awful by any means (Actually a few of them are--Map 14 comes to mind), but it almost feels unfair to put any set of maps after one of the greatest 12-level episodes of all time.    It should be said that the weakest the Megawad gets is "Eternal Doom II," as part III as a whole finishes strong, aside from a bloated copy-cat of map 12 that stands in the map 30 slot.    The soundtrack, composed by Rich Nagel, is the most consistent bar of quality throughout the wad, and almost--ALMOST--makes the more mediocre sections of the map-set bearable, providing an incredible score with returning themes and varying styles.   On the whole, Eternal Doom I is easy to recommend, and to the most diehard fans of the wad's esthetics, may just buy enough good will for those who wish to journey forth for rest of the megawad's offerings.

      This is a deliberately abstract level. While it's not as puzzle driven as you'd expect from the description, the author clearly designed the level with tricks in mind.   Unfortunately, it's riddled with bugs: At some point there's an elevator. Hitting a switch will close a wall behind you. Unfortunately, that wall will no longer be openable from the outside! You can easily return outside with the Chaos Device and be forever stuck. In fact, that wall shows HOM too! The teleporter near the exit has W1 triggers, which will easily be cancelled. This is an even more serious bug.   I will give this 3/5. I would have given it 4/5 for originality if it weren't for those showstopper bugs.

      Been caught by the title, leaved for the shitty wolf3d like layout. Also it's way too empty for a single player map and it's too large and have too many doors for deathmatch. Avoid it!
