Like many wads it suffers from the missing implementation of the difficulty settings. I played on skill 1 and died all the time. Furthermore, the copy and paste syndrome can’t be overlooked. I give 2 stars... +0,5 stars, because it’s the author’s first completed work. Try to improve and you will become a good mapper some day!

This isn't a bad wad. Design was pretty good, however, there are noticable copy and paste designs with a same-designed room occuring in 3 maps. There are WAY too many tough hitscanners for my taste, it just became frustrating. Despite this, it is deserving of 4 stars.

As much as I like seeing custom monsters in a map, this one is one of the reasons I always play custom maps with cheats on. When even the basic zombieman/shotgunner /imp can down you in a couple seconds, your monsters are way too strong. Also, constant tight corridors, excessive copy-paste, and having to jump just to get from one room to another are rarely good things.

Not bad! In fact...I like it! the skulltag mobs fit the theme well, albeit the levels were a tad repetitive.

As i prefer wads in classic styles, I can't say that it is a masterpiece.. the main lack is - too similar sectors and corridors, that make you feel boring.. new monsters and the boss in lvl are a good part of wad, so i mark it as middle (3 marks)

It was average for a mini tc. Nice enemie replacements however, it seemed a bit short, and a few secrets would of have been nice. 3/5.-Candle M

It's not bad looking, and the enemies (including the boss) are neat, but the cut n paste is lame, and it's a very simplistic and symmetrical layout. Plus, all the doorways are like waist high, so most of the time the laser hits the ledge and you have to jump in and out of every room. That's just stupid.

The levels are a bit boring and most areas look similar. Gameplay is also very repetive and monster placement is quite bad. All in all an average map-set and I'd give it 3 stars, however I'm going to make that 2 because the author didn't give proper credits. I mean if one can't bother to credit the individual authors of the custom monsters, at least the bestiary site could have ben mentioned in the txt!

      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.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      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.
