Summer Deep

  

A short set of maps by the author of the excellent Alkylation. These are not quite as ambitious, but still imaginative and with plenty of quality action. Be prepared in particular for some close-quarters encounters with Revenants, Mancubuses and Barons in tight corridors or confined spaces. There's also a custom designed boss at the end which takes a bit of seeing off....

 

A slight oddity of this wad is the inclusion of mini-levels with just a handful of monsters. The last of these, the 'Postludium', takes place after the boss encounters, and requires you to defeat a Cyberdemon in order to get back to your spaceship. There don't appear to be any ammo or weapons around, so pistol starts are out of the question and you'll be dependent on carryovers from the previous level - make sure to have a good scavenge around before leaving it.

 

Played on UV, continuous, GZDoom.

Looks good, real good, but the gameplay isn't very exciting. Some of the ammo placement (particularly cells before plasma gun) is just plain wrong. I'd like to give this a higher score, but I can't. 3/5

I like it. There were some cramped rooms and some moster placement was little bit annoying, but I liked the desing, cutscenes and many other stuff. Especially lot of nice ideas in The Flesh Factory made it unforgottable for me. 4,5/5 Damned

This is a nice mapset. The levels are generally well designed, though there are a few places where they seem a bit more cramped than need be. Monster/item placement is okay, though some items are in slightly annoying places, placed too tightly up against walls and corners. Nice use of unobtrusive and brief scripted cutscenes. 4/5 FP

Some nice clean cut wads that are pretty fun. Good detail making it fun to look around. Lots of ammo I think but better than not enough. I think this should of got map of the month but who cares. 5/15/07

Pretty impressive, I liked it quite a lot. There were some small flaws, but they were forgivable, it's pretty much what everyone else has said at this point. - Ultimate

I liked this mapset. Excellent level design but the monster placement was kind of annoying. There seems to be an excessive amount of archviles, but maybe thats just me.

      Old school classic of mine, i remember playing this map back in the days where the only to play doom maps are buying (or having them as a gift) shovelware CDs or have some luck to find some PC magazines that sells CDs with some Doom maps included, in this case PC Gamer or The Games Machine (an italian videogame magazine) and this in the age of Duke Nukem 3D / Quake era, a pretty hard task as you probably imagine! After this little premise, this map is... pretty cool as i remembered it. Maybe too easier now than the old days, it is also one of the few map that use a darker variant of WFALLx texture, a thing that in that times was really, really unique. It reminds of a easy map from TNT. The mine tunnels are actually way too squarish and the monsters aren't that hard. But layout is pretty fluid and map is pretty fun to play...

      Love the unique twist of taking on visuals straight out of a comic, it's a breath of fresh air to blast demons in a purgatory like esque, instead of hell for the dozen time.

      One of my favorite megawads. Unique, humorous, memorably, and featuring lots cutesy sector work, such as toilets, helicopters, chairs, and the such, all of which are entertaining to see. Oh, and let's not forget it also has the best IoS fight ever (props to Gusta's girlfriend for serving as reference).   The early levels (from 1 to 7, with the exclusion of the 5th), compared to the rest of the megawad, are very low quality. Not to say they're bad, but they're not levels I'd like to replay when I think of what else KSutra has to offer, or what initially comes to mind when I think of this wad.   Gusta and Method were the level makers of this wad, Adolf "Gusta" Vojta making most levels for the wad (23 levels), and three levels in collaboration with Jakub "Method man" Razák, who alone made merely 6 levels.    Method's levels are easily the lesser the megawad has to offer, being the most lacking in overall quality, and with gameplay and progression ranging from dull to irritating, and are solely the reason this isn't a 5/5, but a 4/5 for me. As for Gusta's levels, I found his progression with level design was visible, with almost every next level outdoing the previous. They're the most unique, fun, and slaughterful.   Gusta and Method boy didn't aim for "pretty visuals, pretty enemy placements, pretty mindblowing mechanics, etc.", they simply aimed for making the levels fun, regardless of what sacrifices. Though they're easier than the usual late-AV or HR level, they're still challenging, and if you're an avid classic lover like me, you'll easily spot the specific inspirations taken from the classic megawads the authors claim to be fans of. And Duke Nukem 3D. What was taken from that is most visible.   4/5, give it a go, but don't be put off by the early, or Method's levels. This is an essential experience to every player who's taken interest in classic Doom community works.

      Visually this wad is very ugly because it uses monochrome. I don't understand this design choice. Absolutely a turn off.

      TiC is most known for the Memento Mori's both of which were high-profile releases made for co-op, as well as Requiem which was their final wad. also they are known for Slaughter Until Death, Evil Unleashed, and finally Obituary, which is their most unique release overall. the styles of both Denis and Thomas Moller are quite outdated when put against any and all modern mappers who even exist, but they still prove quite memorable in encounters, notably of the cramped kind. Obituary as I said is the most unique release, the one where they worked with dehacked to create custom enemies (this unfortunately makes the thing hard to play unless you get it from the DSDA download, which consolidates it nicely. the rocket troopers are the best and worst new enemy simultaneously, nasty foes that can easily kill anything around them, even themselves. the stealth fighter is also high on the priority list due to him being fast, and the "harder imp" well he's just harder and all. there's apparently a weapons patch, but it's perfectly playable without it.   looking at the level design, my biggest issue in all honesty may just be the first level and the weird way of getting that yellow key, which is the only real bug. other than that, cramped combat makes for consistent watchful eyes of the surroundings. MAP05 is also quite memorable if a bit long, while others are fairly standard and a bit unmemorable. doesn't mean they are bad though. the teleporter closets in some maps are very poorly constructed it seems, but the whole set still proves to be quite fun to play even with the dated level design.
