Why the doors are textured as walls? I had to use IDDT on everymap to know where the doors where and I'm talking about regular doors, not secrets

the oldest full megawad I could find. Surprisingly enough, most of these maps are quite satisfying to play overall, and there are a lot of cool moments to be found throughout. I can't rate it too high though, because some puzzles are too obtuse (E1M6/E1M7), there are several points where you can gets tuck permanently, and some areas are very ugly. Best moment is the Cyber fight in E3M4.

a mixed bag, filled with large maps, small maps, awkward maps, and E3M4. many of the bigger maps made me sleepy though.

Some good and few even great '94 levels here, but those by AL looks out of place and plays horrible by itself. Also I think what statement about "permission" is wrong.

4/5 There are some great maps here, and Al has improved upon them all in some way or another. His own levels are for the most part tough but fair challenges. There's some neat ideas present to keep it from becoming just a Doom replacement. A few levels are very bland/boring, though, and I don't like most of the new sounds. - KMX E XII

It might be closer to 3/5 material all things considered, but I'm going to pass along a 4/5 because it would be nearly impossible to pick 36 random single levels that allow modification in 1995, and have them all be good. Many early era gems in here, and Al's modifications make them just that slight bit fresher in many cases.

Brilliant, amazing, unbelievable. The density of IDEAS per square meter is higher than in any other wads. 7 stars.

These maps are pretty damn great for 1995, I had to cheat to pass E1M1 I'll admit, but I'm up to E1M4 now and I'm really enjoying it. Some of them seem distantly familiar, as a child I may have played them in their stand alone state over a decade ago.

I really enjoyed this - there were maybe a couple or few maps I didn't like as much - but as a whole it was a very enjoyable 90's experience. ~vf

Not a bad idea to include a collection of classics. I haven't recognise most of the levels (I may have missed a lot of Doom1 WADs from the old times), but I do recognise the sounds and musics. The only bad thing is that I can't see any credits/nfos of the original authors and WAD names for each level. Historically interesting for me, respectfull for the author. I am gonna download Heroes 2 now. Hopefully I will recognise more gems there..

The music was good, but the level layouts were bland, the textures were awfully chosen, and some of the walls were misaligned with textures. Also, I rated this megawad with two stars because there was no complexity of sectors within sectors. When I play a wad, I want eyecandy, lots of sectors, decent amount of monsters, and complexity (not just room after room); and for God's sake, make all of these things fit together NICELY!

I must have played and quit this multiple times before I was finally able to beat it. It takes a different kind of mindset to play early Doom levels like this versus modern user-made maps. While I still think the overall package is a mixed bag, I walk away from it with a better appreciation for the beginnings of Doom mapping where wallhumping is a necessity, mandatory secrets are commonplace, and examining your area map to figure out where to go is essential.

HEROES.WAD is the perfect Doom time capsule. It has everything from cheesy MIDIs and awful sound replacements to brilliant id-quality maps and STARTAN3 shit. Its legality might be dubious, but I did find some new gems I had never played before (E2M3, E3M3, and E3M6) and the crappier ones I probably would've never played separately. After removing the sound effects and playing only with pistol starts, I really had a blast with this megawad. 4/5

Overall it's really rather good - far better than the average compilation wad from those days. It's worth checking out Never-Again's complete set of UV -fast demos for this megawad.

Combines many of the top 1994 maps into one package, and that's why I'm giving a 4/5.

Heroes 1. Good Doom 1 megawad. It is the first I played Doom with DOSBOX on. Great atmosphere. The songs and sounds are on par. The action is on par. The finale is on par. Play it now. Heroes 1 gets a 5/5 rating for all this.

      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.
