About This File

A project that could'nt be realised through many concepts (It went through three concepts already, they all failed from 2006 to 2007), however this time it suceeded by using most simple, most fastest concept in a form of CLASSIC BOOM WAD

I've watched this team working on this stuff and I've seen how much work they put in it. They were really fast in mapping and the maps were growing really fast. But not just some maps, they were quite a good quality. The testing team were testing thoroughly. So overall, this wad was made quick, but also not some pile of shit. I give thee 4/5 because I don't like some of the maps :P

I thought these were kind of boring: the levels (except for 9) were linear, the rooms so crowded that the monsters would crawl over each other if they could. There were intelligent moments as well, but they were few and, unfortunately, overwashed by the general homogeny of the overall design. This reminds me of modern FPS games, which also offer little margin for exploration. But on that and other topics I could talk until cows crossbreed with humans, so I'll Just say it was a decent piece of work.

This is an excellent wad-set. The game-play flows very well and there are plenty of areas for fighting and some for taking a little breather. My only gripe is that there is far too much ammo (I hate picking up a box of shells when I already have 98). 4/5

it is getting boring very quick. you open doors and have to fight in a mostly linear way - over and over again. the design is ok even good, lighting is good the flow is ok too, but boring after a while because there is not much variation of... 3/5

Great maps, only downside is the boss on level 10 kinda sucks. But oh well.

I thought it was fun. Definitely worth more than the 3 stars it currently has.

I was supposed to make a map for this, but my lazyness (and the fact that my style is completely different from the one applied in this wad) made me unable to make it. Actually, I think it's decent but nothing more, not my kind of maps, very repetitive also. -CKeen

      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".

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.
