About This File

Your mission was supposed to be simple. Just some checking, some monitoring, who couldn't take care of that? Naturally they've chosen You after You screwed up Your last assignment and some important files were stolen from the computer at the UAC HQ on Earth.. You don't know what was that, they don't let their soldiers know that kind of stuff. So they decided to give You a light assignment-You are sent to one of the remote planets, outside of our solar system- Loina 5. The planet is a cold mass of rocks and swamps. During the long terraforming procees many brilliant scientists lurk in the labs in the outposts to monitor every little bit of change of the weather.. but not You. You just sit in some old outpost no one gives a damn about and just watch some stuff, day after day. Life couldn't get worse... or could it? One bloody night Your outpost is assaulted by unknown creatures. You ran to the comm tower to call for help, send an SOS, anything.. but no response. Something interfered the comm equipment. There was no hope for You. They killed You.

Fine but not so good as other maps. Not enough ammo. But I still liked the architecture and the mood. 4/5 - Zalewa

the map looks good but boring gameplay, the author obviously never tested this map, there is not enough ammo so that you can't finish it 1/5

Very run of the mill. Very boring at the start - you fight too many hellknights with just the shotgun. This really slows up the flow too much. It also get very predictable, and the architecture becomes very repetitive towards the end with the the blocky corridors, followed by outdoor areas, followed by more blocky corridors etc. Also completely linear. Not worth more than 2/5

I found the start annoying due to lack of ammo

      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.

      If it were renamed "Garbage Dump," I would have given it a better rating.

      A large, but not very prolong map, which is interesting to explore. I liked the author's strategy to place strong weapons in well-protected places. To get them the player need to pass a kind of test. The difficulty depends on the player's luck. It is important not to miss the shotgun at the very beginning, otherwise entangled corridors can lead the player to a situation in which he will be easy prey, left without ammo. Visually, the map looks neat, another good example of using standard textures.
