The likely final map in the ic200x series. A huge sprawling techbase with textures from a variety of sources.

An excellent map with utterly gorgeous visuals and well-designed, steadily escalating challenges. The design is highly nonlinear and interconnected.

A little confusing but fun regardless.

Phew, an exhausting but incredibly enjoyable venture. A great sense of pacing, both in weapon progression and encounter difficulty. Awesome use of custom textures, too. The map is definitely gorgeous. The final encounter before the exit was a bit anticlimactic. Would not have been disappointed if the exit was in the top of the red reactor thing towards the end. Climbing up through that room is definitely the high-point of the wad.

Looks nice but gameplay lacks originality, it gets very repetitive really fast, and I don't think using a fixed set of monsters for each part of the map was such a good idea. Impressive design but again I think it lacks larger open areas like those found in Vrack2b. 4/5 - Belial

Awesome architecture and a really impressive bag of Boom tricks. Gameplay starts out nice at first but gets repetitive and cheaper due to the number of monsters and them being always the same. Other than that, this wad is highly recommended :). 4 Stars. -Dani.

This is a large map with lots of enemies. It's a big facility with tech stuff and cargo stores. Like its predecessor (ic2004.wad) it has some ZDoom features that are used in a reasonable way, without changing the DoomII feeling too much. Gameplay is great and challenging with an emphasize on the rocket launcher (at least in my game, but maybe that's only because I like rockets so much ;-) Definitely worth a download. 4.5/5 -Milian

This is an excellent, underrated map. It's loads of fun to play in coop. You can get lost in the level since it's so huge.

Quite awesome for the most part, but after a while it starts to get quite repetive. Still, "I'll be generous and give you..." a 4/5. -Tango

Amazing visuals. It seemed to flow well at first, but then it slowed down and included too much backtracking and switchhunting for my tastes. The word "generic" comes to mind when describing the gameplay - it's well balanced in health/ammo, and the fights themselves are alright, but nothing is really original or memorable. Worth a play for just about anyone (and be sure to check out the reactor room even if you dislike the gameplay before that point). 4/5

Once again you have made me happy. This map is just damn good. Looks awsome (must have taken forever) and plays ok too. The new textures are everywhere and rule like the last one but better yet. 4/25/07

This map is very unique. It has sort of a different layout unlike any I've seen before. It uses a song from Quake 2 and Quake textures, which mixed surprisingly well with the stock DOOM textures. The map's got some cool twists and turns and features some impressive advanced engine tricks. The difficulty is average. I give it 4.7/5 stars and recommend it for play.

Very "meh" gameplay and the level is quite long. These two things combined didn't leave a good impression on me. The visuals are nice I guess, although they're high quality rather than imaginative. Not a great map but a least the reactor area is cool. Too bad it is followed by a boring timed battle, the map should just end in the reactor.

Besides one part where I spent about 15 minutes wandering after I missed a switch, thjis may have been one of the best single-map wads I've ever played. 5/5

Superb map. Best of the ic series so far. Very tight gameplay, coherent design and moody ambience.

In light of its high placement in the 13th Cacowards, I've had another go (I'm the reviewer who uses "magistical" above). The level is still very attractive, with the ne plus ultra of reactor cores, and the gameplay is tough but fair. It has a few problems though. The sheer size is wearying. The crate maze with electrical fields that you have to switch on and off is dull, and I know precisely which switch the previous reviewer missed; the level has a diffuse start.

Most excellent pwad: great gameplay, awesome architecture, a lot of fun. Quite surely one of the best pwads for a long time! Warning: 1) linedefs 13264 & 14694 should be one sided. 2) Not compatible with Jdoom v1.15.6 (Doomsday v1.8.6) & Doom Legacy v1.42!! 5/5 - Jive

Quake level design seems an influence on this map, but it's not at all overindulgent. This level begins in modest extravagance and evolves into Most Excellence. (I liked the easy way out of the final fight - in the...) -JdF

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.

      If it were renamed "Garbage Dump," I would have given it a better rating.
