About This File

This is a small map, first one, of my unfinished Final Onslaught project. I couldn't have been bothered to finish the rest of the maps. Short, small, very detailed. Enjoy.

This is looking beautiful, with the author being on a detailing spree. But... IT's TOO SHORT!! It has only 24 week monsters and is over before it even begins. Pity! :-( 5 stars for asthetics, 1 for gameplay. 2.5/5 -Milian

Modern map standards? In Doom? I don't know wether to laugh or cry.

I like the details, so I like the look of this map. Sometimes there are problems with it, because you can get easily stucked behind some small corner and it sucks ;) It is easy on UV because no difficulty settings. The map is really easy but as map01 of some MW it could work good. Unfortunatly the project was cancelled and the potential of this map is lost. 3,5/5 - Damned

A person has to download this level for the detail alone. I know that it has no gameplay to it, but damn the detail is good and I want more levels like this. 3/5/07

This sort of simple intro' map for a multi-map project doesn't really offer much as a stand-alone release. The gameplay and design is (I guess intentionally) very simple, and there's no challenge at all. The massive oversectoring, much of which just gets in the way, and horrendous texture choice is really ugly to my eyes too. 1/5 FP

This is dated February 2007. You fight 24 mostly weak monsters in a brightly-lit techbase. The detailing is a bit old-fashioned by modern standards, and has an unfortunately cartoonish look on account of the brightness. The gameplay isn't bad, but it feels like the first fifth of a proper-sized map. The vast majority of the monsters are zombiemen and imps; if it takes you more than a minute to finish the level you're doing something wrong.

Detail is great and I would have given this map a 4/5 if there had been any real gameplay at all. On detail alone I give this map a 3/5.

I'll admit this, I suck a Doom. And this was SO EASY for me!! Oh, and too fuckin' short if you ask me. This is even worse than Paint-Brawl (a crappy fps paintball game make with duke 3d's engine for those who don't know what Paint-brawl is.) 1/5 you s.o.b.

I don't know what you're all whinging about because this is a perfectly acceptable map01 for any megawad. The real shame is that tougher, larger maps weren't completed and this very nice little map stands alone. I'll add that I would gladly show this to any person who hasn't played Doom in many years and needs something easy that showcases what the new sourceports bring to classic Doom. 4/5 - pritch

Even as a "showcase" role it isn't nothing special, except that it proves definitively and beyond doubt that slopes are possible. Other than those, no other special source port features are used (maybe the truecolor sky), and it rivals Gothic'99 in baroque and rococo detail. It also remains unchallenging even for a rusty fellow doomer, E1M1 is much harder than this on UV at anytime. 2/5

Nice, but essentially unfinished and unchallenging. 24 monsters in UV, of which the toughest is a final Hell Knight. The architecture seems to be the perfect complement to Tormentor667's super-slige like style, being heavily based on hyperdetailed ZDoom/Hexen slopes. The whole map screams "LOOK, I HAVE SLOPES!". However it lacks in atmosphere and use of light effects is very poor or inexistent.

A crazily ambitious map, which I daresay was too ambitious? In all honesty I prefer highly detailed maps over the retro style because they very much do so in fact generate atmosphere. Though the mishmash of some details, such as overuse of slopes, as well as conflicting patterns compromise what otherwise could have and would have been a very atmospheric and enthralling map. The effort put into the project however is very commendable.

As the first viewer said, this map screams "LOOK, I HAVE SLOPES!". This map has 24 monsters at UV, which makes me think this map just resembles detail instead of gameplay. Good music, good detail, filled with boring-ubersuparcool detailed empty rooms, and a Hell Knight as a strongest monster. 2 stars -Moti

The name is a little misleading to say the least, 'Final Onslaught' is not what this map is! Even on UV -fast, I only took 3 hits. There are no 'oh shit' moments where all hell breaks loose, it's just a nice walk in the park. On the plus side: The look of this map is excellently executed, although I thought some texture choices were a little odd. If this was a megawad, I would be looking forward to the next level, hoping for more murder-death-kill... This should (and could) be 4/5. 3/5 -jb

Wow, this is something else. A very easy map for Zdoom with only 24 monsters. The architecture and detail put into this map is amazing and the use of Zdoom features such as slopes is very well spread. It is very original but it lacks a bit of atmosphere and some textures are poorly chosen. It will be certinally a good start to a 32 level megawad. If you are looking for something Doom Like I don't reccomend you download this. A rating of 3.5 Stars -PC

When I launched this level I was like "Holy shit, that's an instant success!". After sending several bugs back to Hell and hitting exit switch this image was gone. I was very disappointed because I thought that this was going to be something better, yet it was like Entryway that looks different. The main point is that this map isn't bad. It just doesn't match my standards. 3/5 for effort and detail, Zalewa.

This map should never have been released IMO. The design is attrochious in ever way, and the action is uneventful. 0/5

Yet another example of style over substance. More sectors does not equal more fun.

      Pretty solid for a bite-sized claustrophobic level. Even on UV it doesn't get frustrating, though you will die a few times. On top of that, the level is pretty short overall, taking less than 10 minutes. The level is pretty linear in terms of unravelling, but there was at least one encounter that could have gone quite differently if I hadn't taken care of an enemy earlier, so there's a little bit of strategy. The combination of Wolf3d and Doom textures make for a colorful and macabre combination, having bright, cartoony blue walls interspersed with rooms of meat. Good stuff!

      One of the best wads of the 1990s I've ever played. The main weakness is surely its very outdated aestheticism with a very strange use of textures.   On the other hand, the wad must be retained for its ingenious traps and creative layouts. The wad is not easy. I have died several times in some levels. Rocketmen are particularly dangerous but at the same time very useful in killing their teammates.   My level is probably level 5 "The Hidden Below". I loved the height variations and the ways of climbing and descending. Moreover in each level, there are nice textures like barriers, middle-textures arches....   For me this wad is an example of true level design and inventiveness.   I rate it only 4.5/5 because of the absence of new music and the rather rudimentary aestheticism even for its time.

      Big, fun exploration map with a really good theme... Visplanes crash on vanilla DOOM2.exe, works without any problem with doom2+

      I really liked the free alternative to TNT: Evilution.
      Icarus: Alien Vanguard is a totally different monster but somehow similar, made by the same monster team.
      This lacked a proper dehacked patch with custom text, but @NightFright made a neat fix for that, telling a compelling story that is really entertaining to play.
      The maps are amazing. The best maps here are far better than Evilution's best maps. The bad ones here, are just bad Doom 2 level maps, so there is little to be really bad all in all.
      But, Icarus had the same little ill as Evilution had, last ten maps completely drags the experience. At least, this maps are better than the ten last from Evilution.

      Team TNT has shown that not only are good mappers, they also are good storytellers and that, in a game like Doom, is something to be proud of. And they achive this even working non stop to release this before Evilution hit the streets, so, even if some maps feel a little rushed, they are great!
      The soundtrack is a key element here. Bringing an awesome personallity to this outstanding mapset full of neat ideas.

      Thanks team TNT for this amazing megawad.

      ETERNAL DooM is not a megawad, its an experience that had to be lived to be fully undertanded.
      This is the megawad of the 90's for me in terms of exploration and atonishing sightseeing og the marvelous structures around.
      This megawad its one of the few that awakes in me a sense of wonder like no other.
      And to make things better, i played the incredible dehacked patch that @NightFright made, that adds maps names and new text screens with a custom story. This is the ultimate way to play this outstanding work.

      Now to the flaws: the first two levels are what really define if you would play this megawad or not. The first maps is corridor after corridor, with a little puzzle for the keys to enable the exit, after that, the second map is something completely different, with a very big puzzle map that will catch everybody unprepared. If you can reach map three, your surely are at it now, and after that, is a big alley up, a pretty big mountain ahead full of wonders.

      Thanks team Eternal and TNT for this amazing work of art. This possibly is the best megawad i played soo far and the one that i most liked. It has almost everything, new textures and graphics, new way of thinking maps, extremelly clever puzzles, a lot of exploration and a full experience.

      What it lacks? Maybe a proper graphic for the end boss, a proper BOSSBACK also, and some new monsters would be cool, but for a megawad from 1997, this is almost perfect.
      And the soundtrack!
      God, thats a marvelous soundtrack!
