I never excepted this wad to be a success. The concept just limits the variety in gameplay too much. In that sense I got what I expected: many of the maps were pretty boring. Still, I was positively surprised by the polished looks of many of the levels. Some of them were even fun to play. As an experiment of sorts this was a partial success, but as a gaming experience it pales in comparison to many great modern and classic wads. 3 stars.

These maps are well designed and have good layout and details. The limit to only one monster cut the gameplay. Maps with 300 of the same monster become quite boring. 3.5/5 - Damned

I agree with a few of these guys here, it was a real slap to the face to have a chaingunner level and then an archvile level. (Although the archvile level was a little easy) and many maps were wasted on this. It should've been normal. Gets a 2. -Some Soviet

It turns boring very quick. Last map was annoying.

This is a concept megawad; each level has only one monster type, except for Map24, which has none. Sadly no Commander Keen level. Not great overall. It's monotonous fighting imps and demons on their own. I hate lost souls. Most levels would be better without the concept. My favourites were the two chaingun, the first archvile, and the mancubus levels. Cyber map not a patch on Cyberdreams. Surprisingly only one revenant level, but three imp maps(?).

Congratulations, you've just proven why ID created a lot of different monsters. I'm playing DooM now for 20 years, and this is the best demonstration I've even seen by far, how bad monster placement can completely ruin gameplay of potentially great levels. IOW: you shouldn't have wasted these great maps for such an experiment, it's a real pity. 1/5 for the efford as it is now, otherwise 4.5 - 0.5 for the music = solid 4/5.

The 1st few maps are alright I suppose. After playing to map09 I couldn't bare to continue. The 3rd Imp map is where I became super bored. This wad might be fun if you only play a few maps at a time then set it aside for maybe a week or two, then pick it up where you left off. More than that just makes it extremely monotonous. 1/5

I enjoyed this wad, though some parts got repetitive. The map 'Zumma' was nearly impossible to finish. Still, I liked most of this wad and definately will enjoy playing it again. 4/5 -Moti

This was a mixed bag. The concept was interesting, and some of the maps had amazing atmosphere. Most of the second half maps went on way too long though (Zumma and Cacophony were really bad in this regard), with too much switch hunts and backtracking. I loved the Spectre levels (which made the best use of the 1 monster gimmick by far), and also liked Knightmire, Mancublood, and The Crucified Factory. I found the rest though mostly forgettable if not too long, with the Chaingunner levels being especially bad

You thought DTWID was prime example of good mapping handicapped by concept? Well...you haven't seen anything. (4.5/5 for maps and -5/5 for this AWFUL concept!)

Try it with Alando Guns (original) if you think it's too tedious, a shitload of monster variants!

Some good maps but most maps are too big and some are just normal maps. 2/5

Great stuff! Mancublood (#16) is my personal favourite of all. The only shame is that it's not really a megawad with 25 levels instead of 32. OK, the 1monster style must have been a bit tedious to create, but never mind! 4.6(5)/5 by me - Cell.

      A jokewad and a benchmark rolled together into one. Hard to say anything about this really

      This is a historic Doom pwad, it's impossible not to give this 5 stars. Only thing is that if you want to play this, play it on GlBoom plus if you're using an old version of PrBoom or change video mode to GlBoom because if you do not do this, your computer might explode (though if you're using an old computer or one that is not very powerful itmight not explode but you will probably not be able to play)

      while i will admit that there's some genuinely good maps in here, the majority of icarus: alien vanguard is very 'meh'. maps that i'd consider to be good or bad are in a rather small minority, with the vast majority of the megawad being comprised of mediocre, rushed maps that are visually bland and fairly mundane gameplay-wise. even for the standards of the time, i'd say that a lot of these maps are outshined by their contemporaries; there's a multitude of maps of that era both more visually appealing and more fun to play. it's because of this that its rushed development is quite apparent when playing through the maps.   however, despite this, there are some gems to be found in here. some of the maps in the set are much more competently made than the rest, and they stick out like a sore thumb. unfortunately, if you're planning to play the wad front-to-back, most of them only appear in the second half. it's a shame, because if the entire megawad was of this quality then i would've really enjoyed it. what i will say though is that the number of good maps is higher than the number of downright terrible ones, so icarus does have that going for it.   one positive aspect of the megawad that i have to mention is how great its music is. icarus has an absolutely fantastic soundtrack full of distinct songs that, while not saving the maps from being mediocre, does help immensely with giving each map a unique identity. some of them - especially that of map08, which sounds like it was ripped straight from 1975 - don't fit with doom in the slightest, but they still help to break the monotony and are still great to listen to. the entire ost has a distinct sound to it as well, one that i haven't ever heard anywhere else. even if you don't wanna play the wad, i highly encourage you to at least listen to some of the songs in it.   overall, icarus really isn't that great. i wish i had more positive things to say about it as many people do find it to be quite good, but i simply don't see what many others do in it. for the most part it's rather mediocre with a few highlights to go along with it, and doesn't hold up as well as many of its contemporaries have. with that being said, i do still encourage to anyone reading this to at the very least check out the second half of the wad as it has the highest concentration of decent maps, and has far less of the bland silver spaceship theming that icarus tends to be associated with.
