I tried to make a tropical forest island kind of like FarCry. Hopefully I succeeded somewhat

Decided to place my vote since I played this long ago, I believe it deserves a 4.5 stars so I will tip the balance with 5 stars.

I'm giving it 5 stars because if my computer could keep up with it it would be an awsome map. As it is though....it's the best slideshow at 320X200 I've ever watched.

It's funny because It's supposed to be a tropical island and yet there are no palm trees besides regular trees. :P

For a tropical location it has the wrong kinds of trees. :P

Typical form-over-content level. The first scenes consist of some extremely decorated open areas, with little cover and a shitload of different monsters, many of them snipers, and poorly visible. The following inner scenes suffer from similar problems. Overall: despite the technical skills shown, it horribly fails on gameplay. As gameplay is the most important aspect of a map, I cannot give more than 2/5, which is a serious pity of the effort.

Certainly is pretty, all those who think is ugly can have a nice cup of stfu. Too much detail for my pc, prehaps you could consider a "lite" version :P - Cutmanmike

Awesome map! Good new atmosphere, good decoration, very good. Don't carry if someone didn't like - there is always someone to screw up with knowless commentaries. ***** - Daniel

      this is a mockery of two of the best wads of all time.  on top of that gameplay sucks.  don't get it for your sake.

      Another solid mapset that captures the PSX version feel perfectly. Maps comes in all flavors, from techbases and urban areas to the menacing void and, of course, HELL and also has some unexpected secrets which you might play it to see. Of course, I absolutely love the PSX version of Doom and this one is no exception. Gameplay speaking, it's pretty balanced and thought out nicely...with ambushes, good monster placement and really nasty traps which you must avoid it at all costs. One thing that will help you a lot is the addition of a new weapon...seriously, that thing is powerful...check it out and try. Maps have a nice look that helps you to be inmersed in the atmosphere and coupled with the music, it's much better.   Great recommendation, give it a try and you'll have a fun time.

      Since I tested the map, I can say that playing it again it still surprises me the amount of effort and detail of the gameplay used, like a lot of portals, clever effects like the one used before you pick up the yellow key saying nope and many nice references including a special secret. Gameplay itself for combat is pretty straightforward with some nasty stuff for you in the Nightmare difficulty. Try that out by all means. Really solid stuff which I totally recommend you folks and play it.

      When first reading this wad's description I thought this will be a 1994 style map, where someone just tried to recreate his office building to shoot up his colleages. Boy, was I wrong!   Going Down emerged as one of my favourite megawads so far, with its very clever use of small to medium map space and interesting gameplay mechanics in every single map. The first couple of maps start innocent enough, but soon you will find yourself navigating literal crawl spaces, thinking about use of space and / or slight puzzle mechanics just before being thrown into hell itself and fighting for your life. Going Down is designed as a literal descent into hell, which was the most beautifully realized aspect of it. How every map slightly changes into a more and more hellish theme is just great, great design work. Even though the later maps delve into slaughter territory I must admit that I still quite enjoyed it. Actually this was the first time I enjoyed being slaugthered and figuring out how to approach the map.   Going Down is simply an amazing piece of work, oozing quality from start to finish and rewarding the player with incredible elevator music inbetween. A must play.
