About This File

A large map for Doom 1 with lots of secondary corridors and canyons (but otherwise mostly linear gameplay) and tons of bad guys. The Doomworld thread for this wad can be found here: http://www.doomworld.com/vb/wads-mods/41648-big-map-for-doom-1-nice-shadow-effects-thorough-demo/

I've rarely played such a boring map... sorry. I gave up after 20 minutes because I just didn't want to waste any more of my life on it.

After reading the Doomworld review, I expected this wad to be horrible. An acuality, I found it to not really be so bad. No, the wad does not require Gzdoom, but it is understandable why he would want it to be played that way: He had used gradiant lighting in several places, in addition to light sources in a way that would look neat in Gzdoom's opengl mode. Gameplay wasn't terrible, but it does get repetetive after a while. The midi wasn't so bad either.

This wasn't that bad, really, but I didn't really enjoy it either. It utilized gradient lighting, but beyond that it was aesthetically quite boring. This complemented the gameplay well, as the map itself became really repetitive after a while. Sorry, but I'll have to give this 2 stars for just not being very much fun.

Playing this wad is like eating an entire full-sized grocery-store pizza by yourself. The food's not bad, but it's not that good either, and there's so much of it that you feel sick and bloated after eating it. It is so huge that is has 19,000 linedefs and hardly any detail, and 1,600 monsters and hardly any challenge. The 1994-like architecture and gameplay would have been OK for five minutes, but this lasts an hour. 2/5 --Woolie

The author's first map. This level is huge and with over 19,000 linedefs its one of the largest I've ever played. It only runs in Zdoom, since its past the sidedef limit. Its a 1994 style map with fairly good gameplay. There are a few problems such as unescapable lava pits (so save often), doortraks not lower unpegged, a bit of bland texturing and a few BSP problems. The sky was ugly. 25 secrets. I'm giving it 4/5, the level is fun to play and is a real adventure. -PC

E1M1. This is essentially an enormous, Wagnerian tribute to all those old 1994/1995 levels. It's big, but not "Spire" big, and has over 1,600 monsters. The map looks, feels, plays, and essentially *is* a decent 1994/95 megawad smushed into a single level, which is both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand it's very nostalgic, but at the same time it drags on and on, like playing a 1994 megawad in a single sitting.

This is too big, buddy. God invented levels for a reason. A really solid effort though, with lots of great gameplay to boot.

My review for the old version stands. This is essentially an enormous, Wagnerian tribute to all those old 1994/1995 levels. It's big, but not "Spire" big, and has 1,669 monsters. The map looks, feels, plays, and essentially *is* a decent 1994/95 megawad smushed into a single level, which is both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand it's very nostalgic, but at the same time it drags on and on, like playing a 1994 megawad in a single sitting.

Ok, is a huge, epic, HR-style wad, and this was a good and rigth thing. The bad thing is graphic work and some music hears horrible, like intro and intermission theme. But, wath the heck, is a great map indeed. Keep this way, dude! -3.9/5 Daimon

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.

      If it were renamed "Garbage Dump," I would have given it a better rating.

      A large, but not very prolong map, which is interesting to explore. I liked the author's strategy to place strong weapons in well-protected places. To get them the player need to pass a kind of test. The difficulty depends on the player's luck. It is important not to miss the shotgun at the very beginning, otherwise entangled corridors can lead the player to a situation in which he will be easy prey, left without ammo. Visually, the map looks neat, another good example of using standard textures.
