Hey Glassyman, why don't you try making levels like these. But now with the review - each level contains one specific monster and there are some nice ones in here. I really liked Cacophany, Spook House. A few maps were unrealistic but most were awesome. Bony Encounter was also a good challenge as well. All levels were challenging, get it now!. 5 Stars -PC

There are a lot of nice maps in this wad. It's a shame because I think a lot of them were wasted on the 1 monster concept. Also the pain elemental map has 2 monsters so someone obviously didn't think this through properly (I would've much preferred to battle pain elementals that don't shoot anything) :) 4/5

The Map01, LostSoul's Map and Dutch Devil's ChaingunGang Map are the best Maps! - 4/5 Logan MTM

Maps are too big for only one monster. 3/5

Not bad, as an experiment concept-wad thingymajig. I had reservations about the potential of this idea, but some of the maps are genuinely fun, and some quirky (like the spook house). Some of the mapping is noticeably on the high end of the quality spectrum, but it's probably inevitable that the gameplay will become tedious/repetitive in parts. It's an interesting footnote in wad making, as a gaming experience it's okay. ***

Fun most of the time time. But other times frustratingly tedious.

pure crap concept, you fight army of the same monsters per map some of them are huge and make this wad very very boring

It's sad how you people manage to gang on Glassyman even on this occasion. Go play some Doom maps instead. Like this one. 5/5 -Maes

The gameplay of this megawad has lots of flaws: Overly long maps, irritating map design that features way too much backtracking/walking around to find switches and keys and dull fights due to the lack of variety of enemies. There's a few maps that I liked better than the othe ones like Chamber Of Souls and Knightmare but even those maps were kinda boring which is a shame since the authors put in quite a lot of effort in making this. 0/5

Being a community project the quality of each individual level varies quite a lot, but few maps are able to overcome the simple fact that the 1monster concept is ill-conceived to begin with. Keeping maps short and sweet probably would have helped overcome the boredom of fighting one monster type at a time, but a number of the maps are just too long and tedious. Overall, a pretty bad idea to begin with, implemented to varying degrees of success. 2/5 FP

Like any community project, there are good designs to be found here, unfortunately the whole one monster think turns out to be an awful gimmick in so many cases that sucks the fun right out of many levels here. Really it would be nice if the authors still around would rerelease their levels separately, except converted to the normal normal Doom gameplay we have all come to expect.

A annoying was that it was almost no medkits. I was stuck on the first level even. 3/5 stars -Arthur.

bah! Playing through 22 maps with only 1 type of monsters in them would be ok in short levels, but not long ones. 2/5 stars.

      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.

      Holy fuck, this review cracked me up! I guess this is technically correct, but the song is called Kashmir by Led Zeppelin.   NUTS is pretty legendary, it's simplistic but feels wrong to give anything shy of 5
