About This File

It's a classic, megawad is partially citing the original Doom2, like if it was that same Doom2, but ..would be not the really the same and sometimes totally not the same...

this is certainly not the kinds of maps I expected from Eternal. Remain III remains (get it?) a lot better than this, but this still has that classic Doom II feel in its maps. one of his weaker offerings when compared to his other work, but it has its shine.

A superb re-imagining of the first 11 maps. Great gameplay, level design, item placement,..everythi ng. This is Vanilla dooming at it's absolute finest.

Very good re-imagining of the first episode of Doom II. Perhaps even the best; I find it slightly superior to the first 11 maps of Flashback To Hell.

You know what I really like about this is that it looks really good with comparatively little detail. Stands in stark contrast to a lot of the detail-whoring maps we see these days. Love these reimaginings of the levels...MAP10 didn't feel much like the original but it was still fun and certainly evoked a refueling base much more. When you release the next parts, make them harder and they'll be perfect. 4/5

This was so good, I just didn't want it to end. Excellent remakes of Doom 2, with some clever additions and sometimes breathtaking design. This guy knows how to push the limits of the Doom engine! I walked around MAP10 for ages just looking at everything in awe. You're an amazing mapper and deserve every piece of praise you get. I sincerely hope you release Remain 2. 5/5 -jj

nice, takes me back, its a good change of pace as most wads people make now are too complex, i don't think doom was ever meant to be complex. these look better than the original doom 2 maps in my opinion and pose a little more of a challenge too. 5/5

This has some Doom II touches, although this often fades away (e.g. Map04). In general the levels are more spacious, with a squarer, less grungy design than the originals. Gameplay much easier. On its own merits it is entertaining, but feels like a solid ten-year-old Doom I megawad at times. First few levels quick fun; The Crusher is fun, and epic-looking; Dead Simple isn't as good as original; Refuelling Base pretty damn good; O of Destruction weak.

a bit too far away from the original, but really very good interpretation, could need a more modern style, nonetheless it is well done - every doom2 fan should play this, 4/5

Smart rebuilding of original theme. I like these maps. Nut some secrets are hard to find and sometimes it was too bland for me. It is great map set, but unfortunatly not legendary for me. 4/5 - Damned

This could be the best remake I have ever played. The gameplay is nigh perfect, some of the levels were pure bliss to play. The wad isn't very detailed, but manages to look very good anyway, maybe due to good texture choices and lighting. The levels resemble their Doom2 counterparts in theme and some architectural choices, but don't try to imitate them too closely; thus the player gets a fresh and exciting experience. Very well deserved 5 stars.

So bland and boring. Its doing what Doom 2 did: bore me to hell with the gameplay and don't even think about co-op here. Overrated. And looks bad, too, I have no idea why some people think anything here looks amazing. Its really bland.

It is an excellent Doom II style megawad. Interestingly enough, I just downloaded it today (9/14/07) despite its release about 1 1/2 weeks ago. I usually pick up new Doom episodes the day they release, but the facts that (a) this wad was not shown as upcoming anywhere and (b) I've been playing other games such as Qukae, Duke3d, and Call Of Duty for the last month made me not notice that this was released. Anyways, it's excellent, especially the later levels. I hope all 32 levels get done. 5/5

      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.

      A very neat 1996 map that i kinda remember to have played already long ago, or at least something with a similar start, a really good interconnected layout (even if i was roaming around asking where to go, especially after taking the blue key and trying to leave the caves section), good texturing, hard monster placement (the easiest monsters are the shotgunners), really generous with health placement and some strategic megaspheres here and there, too bad it is too stingy with ammo, leaving me battling chaingunners with only a chainsaw sometimes... but overall, very good!
