Ok, maybe this has historic relevance, because it's from 1994 and maybe is the first iwad with lifts or whatever. Gameplaywise it's boring and easy, and from today's view, it doesn't look good, neither. If, for whatever reason, you want to play it, don't use ZDoom 2.1.06 because it crashes at the start. It ran fine with 2.0.98. 1/5 -Milian

This is dated October 1994. It's awful; it looks and feels like a modern jokewad, and epitomises the terribleness of 1994 level design. It starts in a secret sector; the stairways are hideous and misaligned; there's an obsession with barrels; the rooms are angular, randomly-textured, with clumps of baddies that are no fun to fight; the exit is just a switch that seems to come at random, and has a bunch of power-ups next to it that you can't carry to the next level.

      Download the REAL file here (rd1.zip is NOT correct) https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/megawads/d64d2   Shocked to see so many negative reviews. I had an absolute blast with this one, and I'm not sure what Nems was talking about with the Boom stuff as this runs in Doom2.exe with no trouble. In fact, there is a TON of impressive vanilla stuff going on here. I guess it was so well done that it tricked him.   This deserves a high score. It's a lot of fun.

      It definitely makes Doom look darker, but also slightly changes colors (it reminds me PSX Doom). I prefer original Doom colors and miss how it looked on CRT (almost same colors as with modern monitors, but less brightness and maybe more contrast).

      Great spirit/item placements, and also nice trap placements. Textures are georgeous and scream "1980's sci-fi action movie".

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5
