About This File

You've been to hell and back, now it's MILLER time! Unfortunately the officer you pounded earlier is now your new CO. Guess who gets the next S**T detail? While boarding the drop ship, you find out some strange goings-on are happening at a UAC facility in the Andes mountains. It appears that what recently happened on Mars is happening here. People rising from the dead, demons and monsters gnawing the living. Not good!

You are to meet some undercover operatives at the facility who will lead you to a secret base nearby (Something about having to climb a waterfall and navigate some sewers). You here a rumor about the discovery of an alien artifact that supposedly started this whole mess. You also hear a story about a UAC backed raid by a company of storm troopers that failed miserably. The one lone survivor kept babbling about "blowing up a mountain", though not the way they intended.

The drop ship doors open, and you hit the ground running. Great! An entire company of veteran spacers gets wiped out, and they send you in alone with a pistol, just because you did it before.

Fortunately, a reception party is waiting for you. Unfortunately, THIS reception party is not the undercover operatives you were to meet! AMBUSH!

This reminds me Hexen. Is fun but hard. I couldn't even finish it.

Besides the problems mentioned by the reviewers above me, this is quite a great set of maps. It is definitely worthy of being coined a classic. This is probably one of the first set of maps to ever use any sort of continuity between levels - that is, having parts of the levels you already beat in the next level.

Still my favorite map wad of all time. Congratz on making such an excellent map.

One of the truly great classic WADs of all time. Play it now if you haven't yet!

A classic, by one of the all-time great mappers. Try the Doom2 and Boom versions too.

Three levels (E1M1 - E1M3) dated May 1995; the Doom II versions, at id=6380, are amongst Doomworld's ten best wads of 1995. The maps are large and complex, with lots of monsters for 1995. E1M1 is marred by a dark maze that requires you to find unmarked secrets in darkness; E1M2 is great fun, still hard today; E1M3 overuses the "crystal sector" effect and is violent but not much fun. Overall it suffers from Doom I's weak shotgun, and of course there's no proper end.

      Classic funny little skin, still used in servers to this day so I think it deserves some love.   I like that the voice clip says “WHERE ARE A MY PANTS?”

      More an exercise in 3-d artwork than a game. Just someone's bedroom with a HK in a tiny lobby outside the door, and a Caco in a tiny yard outside the window. A BFG and Invisibilty Sphere are also in the yard but you can't get out there. I think the name is a clue - maybe this was the start of a bigger level, then abandoned. He ought to have allowed it as a base for development.

      Starts with all monsters with their backs to you, and you might as well leave it that way and just listen to the music. One big rectangular room with no finish switch. They couldn't even make the rectangle properly - freehand I guess. Kill the monsters if you want, it's easy.

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.
