About This File

A set of four levels, which all push the limits of the good ol' vanilla Doom.

If your computer refuses to cooperate with doom2.exe, I recommend Chocolate Doom: http://chocolate-doom.sourceforge.net/

Has also been tested and found functional on ZDoom. Other ports may or may not break some effects. I really don't recommend playing this on a 3D-accelerated port.

5/5 I love the mapping, I love the fights. The detail is gorgeous and Espi has constructed a narrative with the bodies of dead marines and his usage of ammo/items in a way that both echoes verisimilitude and doesn't detract from gameplay. There's quite a few standout moments for me visually, but the fight that stood out was the giant teleport wave in MAP03. - KMX E XII

This is an amazing wad that still stands today. Definitely one of the best vanilla wads released. 5/5 no doubt. -TRRobin.

Truly awesome. As said somewhere in the skulltag forums, Suspended in Dusk will be his heaven. May he rest in peace.

Oh yes; I played it with JDoom and it looked fab. The second level had a bit of to-ing and fro-ing - I dislike levels that make you go back to open up a locked door near the start - but apart from that no problems. I particularly liked the unambiguously hazardous glowing waste textures.

OMG, a real Espi hype... Espi (RIP) was a great artistic mapper in his own style, but about gameplay he was absolutely not one of the strongest. Not only in these maps, but also f.e. in ed4_rfo1.wad map27: superb ambiance, but overall just poor gameplay. If you like absolute topmost gameplay, try ED4-RfO maps 11-13 made by Chris Couleur, these are lightyears ahead. Not only for the gameplay, but his spectacular layout & detailing is fully functional. Which is very rare. Overall 4/5, solid but not legendary.

I've never seen such perfection in a Doom wad before... Words cannot express my love for this wad, a definite new favorite, and be aware that it takes ALOT for a wad to make it into my "favorites" collection. A hero you are, Espi. ***** -EarthQuake

Tremendous effort! Good detail & layout. A bit over done in some areas...repetitive details without functional purpose (over abundance of support structures--this place will never collapse!). Custom graphics were very cleverly designed. Gameplay is great in most areas...but lacks in others (repetitive/predicta ble style fights). Too much back tracking and getting lost...and sorry, but the new sounds are horrid. That aside, it's an amazing piece of work. Worth the download. Another one for my vault! 4/5

Those are exactly maps I love : big, non-linear, interconnected and complex with a lot of secrets ingeniously hidden. Not mentionning the huge work on the textures to complete and fit well with the standard Doom2 ones, and on the architecture of the base. An obligatory legend mapset (map03 being my favorite), 5/5. ~Naan

      I must say that although it is a wad of terry, I would like to find a serious one like this, new enemies very interesting and original just for their attacks, bosses that have inspired me (and you can see it in my creations) and it is really amazing like this wad despite having their terry traps is entertaining and much better than many wads of 32 levels, if you want to have something interesting to play and different as long as you ignore the story is fun filled with very good boss fights, excellent music, this is an option although if you can not stand the terry traps just do not try it   5/5 to be a joke wad   Gaia74

      A quarter of a million monsters in a gigantic flat square room. It is said to be for stress testing source ports (and your PC?), otherwise it's on the other side of crazy. It took my PC nearly two minutes to load the wad (I thought it had crashed) and I took less than two seconds to die. At least it ran - the author says he never even managed that.
       
      The first screenshot has a high viewpoint because an Archvile lifted me. The second shows it in the Eureka editor; seeing only about 4% of the area, and every red square is a heavyweight monster (yellow selecting a caco).  and Doomguy is in the bottom left corner. Eureka was crawling, almost unusable - how did the author even build this?

      This was great. Great joke wad and a great Terry trap collection. Instead of the generic "Oh it's a well made map at first then BOOM" it's actually a well-made megawad that simply has them as little traps that can be avoided. It's able to be completed, seriously. That's new. I especially love the final boss and highly suggest using a cheat against him. Trust me, do it, it'll be worth it.

      Are you up for a brutal, non stop challenge through detailed, but bland environments? The Secret Energy doesn't let up, so it's either a low health slaughter map or a speed runner's dream to get from switch to switch, all while enemies constantly spawn in with each button press. There's little health for such meaty enemies and even on the easiest difficulty, it's a slog to kill them all. To balance out the lower health, there are less hitscan enemies that seem to be relegated to a few chain gunners that can get distracted in a sea of madness.   It feels like a punishing experience from the first room. It fills with imps, then pinkies, then flying enemies, then revenants and a cyber demon. The entire map is like that. Enter a room and it will flood in via waves. Each wave opens up something new and you need to find where that new thing is. Is it a switch on a wall? Is it a switch inside of a pillar? Did a door just open up? Are you supposed to go back into the main corridors of the complex? At least on my first play through, I felt there was a poor flow to the level.   The place is so big and centralized, you might miss where you need to go next. No arrows, the switches are around corners and walls inside of rooms that may or may not have opened. The game has its detail, but detail with greens, browns, a few blue wires across the floors, perhaps to guide you to the next area. It was all lost on me and blurred together into a jumble. While the structures of each new room was different, it's the color scheme and darkness that stayed the same.   Give it a try. There is something redeemable in here for those hardcore enough to endure the first room, let alone the entire map.
