The concept is that OBLIGE generates a level, and then a designer has a fortnight to add detail to it. Maps01-03 are basically the same level with different textures. They're too easy and no fun. Map04 is tricky and pretty good, best of the lot. Map05 has some nice detail but is too fiddly. Map06 is horribly cramped and mazey. Map07 okay, looks better than it plays. Map08 is one of those thousand-monster slaughters; unplayable, but funny.

Most of the maps look like complete and utter shit.

Map01 is the original oblige level. I disagree that Eleven(map08) is unplayable. You get enough firepower and health and compared to other maps in this style, it's easy. Highly recommended. Map06 is complex and sophisticated. Hard to navigate in first runs but once I knew the layout a bit, I enjoyed this original and subtle map. (compared to the dw entry this seems fixed).

All of the maps were really good. Who cares whose was best, am I right? The thing that I liked in each map was being allowed to see the individual charismatic mapping style of each author, which felt like a blessing to see. The creative input was really neat in every map and, frankly, the authors put my mapping to shame. It's pretty amazing how they each managed to turn the original ugly map upside down and on its face.

Eternal's maps are excellent as usual. Well worth downloading for, you might not even recognize they're all based on the same map. The others are a real mixed bag though, not nearly as good. 4/5 though just for Eternal.

Worth the download for Eternal's map 08 alone. Although it has to be the easiest "HR-style" map I have ever played, it's still lots of fun. 4/5

      Doesn't like the layout and monster replacements, I didn't found RL until got the yellow key and found a lot of rockets, the location where RL is confusing me, and it also not fun when you get kicked down from the cliffs by Revenants, Mancubus and Archviles after the way to Blue key door, the way to the teleporter just far enough to kill you if not killed by monsters which kicked you down. Final timed puzzle room just nasty as the cyberdemon and archvile fights in the same place, not sure why make the level so big but can't make the fights with them also on bigger place too?   It's not bad level but I'm sure the frustration level is sky high, and not sure the slopes from ZDooM do anything good to this level too.

      Normally, I don't like DooM (1 or UD) WADs because I tired shooting baddies with shotgun as most of them tend put a lot of shotgun guys/ammo and I have shot those full of shotty shit...well, this one can't escaped from that but I found author's tricky as I didn't found many of them(or they placed when I needed to use shotty), also the monster placements(with middle-tier ones) in this megawad helped too, even E1 doesn't suffers low-tier ammo-droping-fest unlike IWAD and most PWADs.   Level layouts and theme are interesting, some E3 levels just a little mazed but I feel okay, never get lost...many levels I feel plays like IWAD but better and larger, you'll found middle-tier monsters in E1 levels and it helps the gameplay, unlike the IWAD you'll have too much ammo in every level even pistol start, if you wasted too much and will out of ammo for sure(at least in UV).   All I can say about this megawad is...fun,  vanilla fun. Except E3M8, the yellow key area with platforming when all enemies + 4 cyberdemons are try to kill me and battles-of-deal-with-4-cyberdemons-or/and-other-powerful-monsters are nasty to me, on top of them, the final "BOSS"...I feel trolled...really? IoS-style?? IT'S ****ING DOOM, NOT DOOM 2 WHY USE IOS-STYLE AS FINAL BOSS?!  :P (At least there is no respawning monster cubes just annoying cyberdemons and barons...but they're still give me a lot of headaches as the battle area isn't very huge and a little cramped I think...)   But at least IDMUS11 helps me dealt with those problems all, for some reasons I feel the main theme of Power Ranger does fit DooM...don't know why but I keep switch to the theme with IDMUS11 cheat if I don't like the level's music, helps me blast through this megawad and the nasty E3M8. :P

      Download the REAL file here (rd1.zip is NOT correct) https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/megawads/d64d2   Shocked to see so many negative reviews. I had an absolute blast with this one, and I'm not sure what Nems was talking about with the Boom stuff as this runs in Doom2.exe with no trouble. In fact, there is a TON of impressive vanilla stuff going on here. I guess it was so well done that it tricked him.   This deserves a high score. It's a lot of fun.

      It definitely makes Doom look darker, but also slightly changes colors (it reminds me PSX Doom). I prefer original Doom colors and miss how it looked on CRT (almost same colors as with modern monitors, but less brightness and maybe more contrast).

      Great spirit/item placements, and also nice trap placements. Textures are georgeous and scream "1980's sci-fi action movie".
