An excellent collection of levels. Like any community project, there are a few duds in here (mainly Gene Bird's levels, which need a LOT more work on architecture), but besides these, almost every other level is excellent. There are some innovative maps as well. Difinitely a must-play.

There seems to be a bug in the second map (coolant platform). There pops up a switch but nothing happens, and there's no way to open ANY of the doors on both sides... Running in Zdaemon...

This was much better than the first CC, but still, there were no truly great levels and too many previously released and/or crappy maps. The best ones are maps 27 and 24.

The Gene Bird maps were added at the end when people dropped out to fill empty slots.

Mixed bag. Most levels are challenging and enjoyable. Some are stupidly hard and beyond frustrating. Level 15 was very glitchy. Enemies were teleporting around randomly. I also had some weird health glitch where if I dropped below 100 health I would die. I had to IDDQD to get out of it. Overall it is worth playing through. The few bad levels don't drag it down too much. I doubt I will play through it again though. 4/5

Whoever did map24 should be prized as an insane genius! Map 23 was interesting and unique! Map 20 was good. The rest? Unlike the dissapointing and largely uninteresting cc1, this one has some stuff that make it worth a play, unfortunately the quality rampages from bad to good in and out with crazy speed, and like all joint projects where too many people are involved it ends up feeling like an incoherent mass of maps thrown together randomly without a consistent theme. Overrated... a 3!

Good megawad. Loses 1 mark for having a big mix of good and bad levels, instead of having mainly good levels. Loses another half a mark for being a plain community pack rather than a story/theme based megawad. True rating 3.5/5

      Possibly my favorite Ultimate Doom megawad. Although its first half feels like DTWID, it quickly becomes a much more twisted and demented take on the familiar techbase/hell aesthetic. Expect well hidden secrets, tight corridors, and some tough encounters in large, complex levels. In keeping with Ult Doom's tone, NaturalTvventy layers the atomphere on thick to create levels that feel genuinely hostile and evil, even more so than in the original.    If you have a soft spot in your heart for the original Ultimate Doom, this megawad is a must play. NEIS makes you realize how rock solid the original Doom formula is, even without the SSG and revenants.

      An odd wad in which you play a Hexen class while fighting Heretic monsters in Heretic-textured levels. Surprisingly, it works pretty well, and is an interesting change of pace from either game. It retains Hexen's hub design, although it's not at all puzzley, just a "go and collect 3 items and return to the hub" quest. It's very combat-focused (there's almost 400 enemies in the final level), but unlike some Heretic maps, it doesn't end up feeling like a slog. Perhaps Hexen's weapons are just more powerful than Corvus's. The level design is very good, besides a couple of sore spots (the cramped areas of the lava level, the metal maze in the final level). The boss, D'Sparil, is much easier to kill than he was in Heretic; he probably should've been modded to have a better chance against Hexen's warriors.

      A fun heavily modified tougher version of Doom 1's E1M6 dated back in April of 94(yes same month of origwad). Its starts a bit hectic but with so many shotgun guys and plenty of health throughout the map, its actually not that hard to go through. However like any 94 wad, it has typical misaligned textures, a few HOMs, and had to use noclip cheat to grab the last card key due to ceiling being too low to pass under. Despite its age and a few minor stuff, its a fun wad from 1994 and I would recommend to give it a try :)

      Excellent wad for Hexen fans. It stays true to the style/spirit of the original game while introducing new ideas. The level / hub design is interesting, the combat is well-balanced, texturing is well-done and well-aligned, and there are plenty of interesting scripted events. The wings are used in a very smart way - you're able reach many previously unreachable items and paths. The only thing I disliked was the "boss" of the final level. I won't spoil it, but it's quite disappointing.   Unfortunately there is a bug in The Castle Of Fluft - the flame mask switch is not set to "repeatable", so if you try to use it without the prerequisite mask, you won't be able to use it again when you do. If you encounter this bug, type "puke 10" to activate the script the mask normally would.

      This seems like a semi-hidden gem. The author's other WAD Crimson Canyon won a Cacoward, though I prefer this one.   It certainly lives up to its namesake. The textures are all Hell's green marble and blood, supplemented with custom textures including some modified Giger designs and some creepy sprites I recognize from Monolith's Blood. The map designs are seriously contorted. It's probably a divisive aspect of the set. In some levels the angular layouts wrap around themselves in a jagged mesh, creating devilish mazes with slightly obscure progression, and where fireballs can fly at you from different parts of the map. Other parts are darker and more claustrophobic. It's all a totally hostile atmosphere.   There are some common themes gameplay-wise but you'll know them by map 2. A big one is ammo constriction, especially on UV. Certain maps seem near unbeatable without finding key secrets.   This was actually one of the first WADs I completed a few years ago, and on revisiting it it feels very fresh. Like most memorable WADs, it rides on strong concepts and some devilish gameplay while targeting a distinctive theme.
