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.

      some of the very best mapping i've seen, and under 30 minutes too! 10/10.

      Cabro's legacy is a big megawad comprising of a hub and 40 playable maps. While the design of maps isn't that great, the gameplay is balanced with lots of fun and there're at least 10 maps that have more than 500 enemies. I really enjoyed the whole megawad and will replay it in future.

      Best terrywad, nothing else to say

      Note: Originally written for /newstuff... figured I'd post it here...   You know how sometimes your memory completely fails you? I'm sure it's happened to me before but I can't recall... oh wait, it's all coming back to me now. I do remember looking at the sign-up thread for one of the Doomworld Mega Projects. For some reason, though, that memory was lost when I ventured to review DMP 2016. And so, I came at this with no predispositions, almost like a virgin Doomer who had never downloaded a PWAD before. It's a good thing I'm obsessed with reviewing this sludge pit of WADS in perfect chronological order, because otherwise my instincts would have turned me away. Which, come to think of it, isn't that good of a thing. But suffering is necessary, at least if you want to complain as much as I do.   So the first thing I found was a beautiful description of my near future. "A megawad with 50 maps." Oh yeah? I have so many questions already. 50 what maps? 50 maps why? Are they good maps, or notable maps, or cheesy maps, or maps of maps? Of course since the text file refuses to do anything other than pain me with knowledge of how dreadfully long this adventure will be, I have no choice but to fire it up and gaze at the equally beautiful titlepic. I was delighted to see something totally original: The regular doom II titlepic turned to grayscale, and then vandalized with sloppy red MSpaint text. Okay. I guess I still want to see what's inside, even though the box is literally smeared with feces.   I can't whine about the text file too much because it actually describes DMP 2016 in humorously accurate minimalism. This is a megawad, and it has 50 maps. And they are ALL the maps. Did you want an empty map that's too easy? It's in there (but it's not the first map). Did you want to get shredded by annoying hitscanners? It's in there. Did you want a nice-looking map with decent gameplay? It's in there. Did you want a gimmick map to jump in front of your car, causing you to crash and waste thousands of dollars on repair? It's in there. Did you want a severe waste of time? Well, obviously you did, since you chose to ignore the awful presentation right from the start. Censorship is not really my thing. I like that people can make joke WADS. The fact that we can map to our heart's content, with only the boundaries of the game engine and our own imagination to contend with, is part of the reason Doom is my favorite game ever. But to me, DMP 2016 is almost worse than a joke. A joke wad is meant to troll you, to get a quick laugh, and to offer a small respite from the other side of the spectrum - obsession over detail and perfection. But this isn't supposed to be a joke. I mean, the title pic is an insult to your senses, but you arrive there in confusion because of the description: A megawad with 50 maps. It doesn't say a jokewad with 50 maps including some actually good ones. It also doesn't say 50 good maps but some are actually not so good. It just says 50 maps. And that's what it is. This WAD is like a reflection of the /idgames database itself. Just hit "random file" and play whatever you get. Your experience will be almost indistinguishable from playing DMP.   Except wait, when you hit "random file" you usually get a sane description of whatever garbage you are about to force yourself to eat. That way your stomach enzymes can get ready for the torture. DMP offers no such preparation. When you start, you are given a hub map from which you can choose any of the 49 other "normal" levels. It even has cute little screenshots of each map with the author's name. But is there any description of the maps, or indication of quality, difficulty, style? Nope. It does say which compatibility those maps were made for, because why would a WAD be tailored for a single port? Fuck it, let's have vanilla and GZDoom all rolled together in a horrendous mapping burrito!   My favorite part of the hub is that it doesn't even indicate which levels have been completed. That's right folks - you get the honor of remembering which ones you have played already! Completing a map doesn't bring you to the next one...it just spits you back to the hub. Naturally I resorted to warping to each map instead, for want of saving my forehead and keyboard from destroying each other. There are some good maps in here, and since they cover almost all play styles imaginable, there's probably at least one that will appeal to you. I enjoyed "Teenage mutant ninja demons", "Bliss Toxin", "The Swarm", and "Ancient Base". If you scroll down the text file there is a description of each individual map, so if you feel like reading a book instead of actually playing the game, you can try to find out which maps you want to see beforehand. But I'm not here to review these maps as if they were released standalone. I'm supposed to review the WAD as a whole.   I said that I'm against censorship, and in the case of people deciding to throw together random compilations of maps with no theme, no quality standard, no organization, and no logic of any kind, I would say "Fine, go for it." And then as a player I would proceed to download something else, something that's actually worth my time. But as a reviewer I am submitting myself to even the worst quality maps, in order to hopefully help other players find WADS they like, and to give authors praise for well executed designs, as well as criticism in areas that could be improved. At least with  a map set created by a severe newbie, there's some amount of effort, some vision, some kernel of good Dooming to be found. The mistakes can be seen as necessary learning along the noble and never-ending path to Master Mapper. But this "Mega Project" is impossible to review in that light. Sure, some of the maps were good because they looked nice and played well, and some were fun because the gimmicks were a success. On the other hand, some were very amateur, very annoying, or just so different from their neighbors, that it spoils the entire thing. One bad apple ruins the barrel, they say. And this has more than one bad apple. One map is a repeating series of rooms each with a door, a cybie, and some soul spheres. It's kinda funny, but the fact that it's placed alongside serious maps makes it more insulting than amusing. I would be embarrassed if I actually created a nice map for this project. And if I was an aspiring mapper looking to join up with the community to improve my skills, I would have wasted my time, since nobody cared about the quality of submissions, and nobody will care to play it and focus on constructively criticizing it. If you really want to make a map just for the hell of it, and then throw it in the garbage, I won't stop you.  But if anyone thought this was anything more than a dumpster fire, I can't find much appreciation for your work. I've heard rumors that later installations of DMP have some sort of organization in terms of quality, so we shall see what that looks like. But as for the 2016 edition, you should only download it if you enjoy wading through sewage in real life.
