About This File

tech, industrial, metal, brick - sort of mixed theme; it is a big map, so you should save from time to time; some places are dark with zdoom, brighter with prboom; five/six monsters are in a secret room;

Large and detailed industrial/tech facility. The detail is well-done and thankfully doesn't get in the way of gameplay at all. The difficulty is pretty low / moderate, with the tension rising & falling periodically, which is quite nice. The level design hinges upon a central hub that the player must return to every time they find a key, using it to open up new areas, all in a very interconnected fashion. I see one review claiming the map is focused on "puzzles", but I found the progression completely straight-forward, and there was an abundance of good action.

Level with a central area that is operated by all 3 keys. You find each key separately and it is used to open the next branch of the map. Very good visuals, very good layout, very good architecture and very good, smooth gameplay. Difficulty is... low? Fantastic map, all in all.

The best of the three so far. Regarding climbing ladders, TURN OFF AUTORUN. If in run mode quite often the player cannot climb them. Thanks go to Didy for this hint. I look forward to more maps. 5\5. Hawkwind. :)

5/5 but I think some monster placement could have been done better to make the map more intimidating.

This is a large and consistently attractive map that emphasises mild puzzle solving over action. Unlike a lot of expansive modern levels it's quite mellow, with a light load of generally weak monsters. The detailing and new textures are great, and there are lots of mysterious devices and machines etc. The ladder leading to the red key doesn't seem to work, either in PrBoom or ZDoom; but you can leap onto the key from a nearby lift, bypassing that puzzle entirely.

This is one of the best looking wads i've ever seen. It's full of great detail and inventive ideas. As to gameplay, the map is a challenge but not overly hard. With some caution, you can cope well with all battles. 4.5/5 -Milian

Looks good, gameplay is kinda meh. Also there's a few doors that only open once, and you can get stuck (I did a few times.)

The level of detail here is quite incredible, but I have to agree with others, that the gameplay isn't without any issue. 4/5 - Damned

Somehow I missed this release last year. That's what happens when Newstuff reviewers faulter on their responsibilities. Regardless, 4 stars, this is a wonderful map. It plays well, for me, and it looks gorgeous, the new textures really bring it to life fro generic doom2 elements. -Scuba

Agree with above comments but a bit too mellow gameplay. Style reminds me abit of a brighter and spacier version of for whom to bell tolls. 4 1/2 stars coldfusio

Excellent well laid out level with high quality architecture and top-notch gameplay. Plenty of battles. Little too much ammo, maybe because I play UV -fast and like watching those stupid bastard hell spawn scrap amongst themselves. ~nice work didy 5/5 -jb

      This is a damn trainwreck.

      Great visuals, creative layouts with unorthodox and challenging gameplay, while still holding those 90s vibes. Although sometimes it can get stressful due to the high influx of monsters in massive areas while giving you no time to rest (edit: though, some will probably enjoy the execution bit more than me -- which is why I changed it from 4 to 5 stars), it's essential for every vanilla lover, and a good trip as well.

      One of the best wads I've ever played, has a great and memorable soundtrack while also having a nice and difficult (but satisfying) level design. To me a nice step up from the original and a way more balanced map pack overall.

      Highly recommended to people who want a nice and difficult wad to play.

      I generally like city maps on DOOM but this set of maps are one of worst I've ever played. Extremely confusing maps, obtuse progression and on top of that there's no enough ammo on UV to kill the monsters. Gave up on MAP 06. It's utter garbage really, you should avoid it.

      Creative, fun, entertaining and challenging levels, very cleverly hidden secrets, some butt-kicking ambushes and traps. Ammo balance is pretty tight in some maps with pistol start, but everything is possible. A must-play WAD.
