Paul improved a lot since the times of this WAD. While not explicitly bad, it's rather primitive and abuses some copy&pasta and repeated patterns. Visuals are sufficient and stay on the original Doom level. ~ 10.2016

The first few maps are very predictable and very boring. After that it just becomes bordering on the line of impossible, and still boring. Try adding more health items.

These don't really catch Petersen's style and difficulty varies too much. They do feel like older maps, and there's nothing wrong with that, but lack the conceptual variety Sandy used. Most of his levels had character; these seem rather random. One made me think of Klie's and another a bit of Scythe 2. The Raven games and TNT music is out of place, too. There are bugs in vanilla, as well (I got stuck in map06). [2/5] ~Chain Mail (08/2010)

Interesting wad idea but the levels don't match Petersen's style. There are some details that resemble his levels though. 3/5 Bug report: in level 5 there's a hidden elevator in the cyber room. By using it, the game crashes with this message ''P_AddActivePlat: no more plats!'' -ASD 14.2.2012

Yes, I liked this mapset too. It's fun if a bit easy at points. Bonus points for use of d_e1m5, my favorite song ever. -- woodpecker

Although it is extremely simple I didn't mind playing these maps. These things remind me of the old days. 3/5 - Cutmanmike

Even if the architecture is more simple than usual, I quite liked this one for it's gameplay. 4/5 - Optimus

I'll ignore the retarded premise of this wad and just say that starting with map05 this wad is actually okay if you don't mind the 'classic' design, and quite good if you find it enjoyable. Too bad the 'ZDoomisms' detract from the experience, that could've been easily avoided. 3/5 - Belial

I think that Sandy Peterson would be rather insulted by these maps. Sandy Peterson's maps weren't as detailed as American Mcgee or John Romero's but the architecture was nice and the gameplay was usually good. In this wad, the achitecture was plain and rather boring, and a lot of the fights were unfair and pretty frustrating -Craigs

Why are people rating this wad so low? It is from Paul Corfiatis; every wad he makes is worth 5 stars as he is a Doom GOD!!!

You guys are all mentally frustrated, you're all not enjoying Doom. But I actually enjoyed this episode, the gameplay is not great and the design is simple. But it looks good. 3/5

Doom is a 13 year old game and this is a 13 year olds attempt at a map. 1/5

Even for something that is supposed to be retro this is very simplistic; each level is laid out on a strict grid pattern, the corridors tend to have a row of monsters in single file, and the detailing and layout is uncomplicated, to put it kindly. It's never more than competent and occasionally it's very bad, e.g. the "maze" in level three. The secrets are a mixture of totally obvious, and unmarked bits of wall. On the other hand it's short and doesn't take too long to finish.

Sandy Petersen: 1) made better-looking maps than these; 2) made maps that played better; 3) could spell his own name; 3) did not release maps that crash Doom2.exe (e.g. map02); 4) did not make map-shattering invalid tag errors (e.g. map05); 5) even if he had made mistakes like those, there is no evidence that he would have repeated them in future projects. Verdict: failure.

First few levels are flat and boring .. next few are better, but have alot of 'lol archvile' and gimmicky fights that are annoying or unfair. Putting Peterson's name on these maps is a letdown.

Terrible. Sandy never made maps like this. I feel his name has just been used as an excuse for releasing poorly detailed 94-style linear hallways which degenerate into hitscanner spam. Another almost unplayable mapset from this hugely overrated author. 0/5

Even for poor quality, mind numbingly boring levels these smell of fail. 0/5

      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.

      A large, but not very prolong map, which is interesting to explore. I liked the author's strategy to place strong weapons in well-protected places. To get them the player need to pass a kind of test. The difficulty depends on the player's luck. It is important not to miss the shotgun at the very beginning, otherwise entangled corridors can lead the player to a situation in which he will be easy prey, left without ammo. Visually, the map looks neat, another good example of using standard textures.
