Fighting hundreds of the same monster is a chore. Most levels are boring.

Great concept, and very enjoyable to play. It's not perfect though, and is let down somewhat by some of the stupidly oversized maps (MAP17 and MAP19 made me want to murder someone for the absolutely hideous repetition and time taken -- they look great and have some very memorable designs, but at that size they are 100% wasted on a gimmick WAD no matter what). However, generally speaking it's very well-made and great fun. MAP15: Spookhouse is an excellent example. A strong 4/5 for 1Monster.

The semi-HR style Map19 alone (Cacophony) is worth waiting to play through the rest of this megawad. I didn't like the hitscanner maps that much though (ugh, ~310 Chaingunners), but the rest of it was pretty good, had no trouble with health and ammo for the most part. The concept works pretty good in most of the maps, which is why this wad gets 4 stars and a reccommended play out of me.

The Concept seems simple a monotonous. But the maps quality makes it a very good megawad though the restriction. Map 22 with only three monsters is a masterpiece. 4/5

the game can be broken on map04. by that it means I can get to a point where I got stuck in an area of the map and was unable to get out of it without using ways which the original doom games were not meant to. the only way to get out of that area was to strafe-run... and since strafe-running wasn't an intended design of the game, i had to deduct some points. Some of the musics were horrible, and i got bored sooner than expected. I didn't enjoy this.

This had some good ideas that were stifled by the rule of the wad. This proves that these dumbshit themed projects keep great maps from ever being actually great. Best played with a monster randomizer, or not played at all. Map14 is obviously the best one in the set, it's got Holy Smoke as the background music after all.

It works with Boom, ZDoom, and I think Skulltag but I am not sure. Good set but some maps were kinda annoying.

The levels were good, but they were completely ruined by this 1 monsters concept. 3/5

4/5 For the most part, I enjoyed it, but there were a couple of maps which just really sucked, such as map04 (What kind of idiot makes 95% of his map a series of hall ways that are 64 units wide anyway?)

1 Monster type for each map gave this wad zero stars. Why can't you people just make NORMAL maps anymore?

This, as a set of regularly populated levels, had so much potential. Which incidentally was wasted on the rigid theme of the project. Hell, you could have preserved the general theme and made the maps more fun by changing the rule to the main monster takes up 50% or more of the monsters while at the same time allowing some other monsters to spice it up. This should be remade (or at least repurposed since the maps are architecturally sound in and of themselves).

      A fantastic wad, probably the single best full 32-map megawad to receive significant "mainstream" recognition. It contains no shortage of clever, memorable combat scenarios, like the puzzle at the start of map17 "The Womb", the archvile invasion at the end of map32 "Postcoitus Doom", the incredibly overwhelming and under-equipped pistol start of map29 "Go Fuck Yourself", many of the fights in map25 "Proxyon", etc etc.   Much has been said about the difficulty of this set, and for good reason, but it actually spends quite a lot of time easing the player in. The first 5 maps or so in particular are surprisingly accessible, hardly if ever exceeding the difficulty of Plutonia even on UV. And even at the peak of Sunlust's difficulty later in the set, it isn't as extreme as sometimes claimed; some have mentioned the textfile's joking that UV is designed for ubermensch doom-gods and taken it seriously, but it's an exaggeration by the authors' own admission in sunlust_extra_info.txt. Yes, the fights in a map like "Proxyon" are pretty far beyond the difficulty of something like Plutonia, but nothing insurmountable for those with significant slaughter experience. In case the player lacks such experience, difficulty settings are fully implemented and are implemented well.   One particular reviewer has claimed, strangely, that Sunlust "eschews complex encounters". Implied in this statement is that complexity is necessary or necessarily good, which normally I might challenge in more detail, but there's no need in this case: Sunlust has the most complex combat encounters of any wad of equivalent popularity. This wad has tons of content from which I could pick out examples, and I've decided on the final fight of map24 "Dying on Cue", an enormous arena where a giant conveyor carries into the battlefield an army of imps followed by hell knights followed by revenants. From the sides, many cacodemons and a few pain elementals float in. It is a common trend in slaughter fights that maintaining space to move by killing the right enemies needs to be one of the player's top priorities to avoid being overwhelmed, and this fight is no exception; both the caco/PE waves and the demon army on the ground are significant threats in that regard (turning off 'actors are infinitely tall' is cheating, by the way). The imps are higher priority in this fight than one might expect because killing them is the fastest way to create space to move, but attention to the other threats is also necessary unless you want tons of lost souls added to the already troublesome flying enemies. The revenants' presence isn't felt until near the end of the fight, when the imps have been worn down, but there will be a horde of hell knights left to use as a giant meatshield for the revs' homing missiles. There's a lot going on in all that chaos, and writing about it doesn't do it justice, but hopefully the point is made. Another brief example: the start of map29 "Go Fuck Yourself", where the player actually has quite a lot of options for progression, and every single one of them is nasty. In any case, even if these encounters somehow don't meet some arbitrary complexity standard, it's hard to deny the fun of figuring out how to dismantle them and eventually succeeding.   Bizarrely, it has also been claimed by the same reviewer that Sunlust features some sort of mindless BFG-spam gameplay, leading me to suspect that he or she played with IDKFA. Nevermind the suggestion that any gameplay featuring BFG-spam is mindless (it isn't); truthfully, even the most BFG-oriented fights in Sunlust will require you to be mindful of your cell ammo, even if you aren't pistol starting each map, and you can't afford to simply hold the trigger down for 30 consecutive seconds like you can in some actual BFG-spam maps (many of which are actually good, by the way). Instead, a few well-placed BFG shots will go a long way.   That digression aside, Sunlust is basically mandatory. If you haven't played it yet, it should be high on your priority list, even if you have to start on HMP and finish on ITYTD.
