Though the episode starts of a bit mediocre with its first few maps it really shines near the end with a good amount of detail,fun combat encounters and lots of monsters.Fighting of hordes of monsters in these fruit themed maps was quite fun but the rooms felt a bit cramped at times and you just shoot at enemies from the front sometimes also with all those big encounters at the end more tomes of power would have been really appreciated.It's great overall with just a few problems holding it back.

Good but absolutely not excellent episode - for that the layout of most maps is not good enough, and the overall gameplay is often too simple or even boring. Worth a try, but don't expect the best Heretic episode ever.

The title screams "Jokewad!" but that's not what you'll find here. In fact you'll find an entire episode of nine good levels. Also be sure to check out these guy's other work, the heavily co-opmitized Doom project The Great Bicycle Mystery (2)!

An average episode replacement, the new textures are pretty meh though, and the texture conversion of Heretic is not carried over. (Like the Blue trident switch isn't synonymous for ending the level)

Wow, excellent. Perhaps the best looking Heretic wad I've seen...ever. 5/5 Play this wad now or E1M2 at the very least. E1M8 had a very unique appearance by D'Sparil as well.

Hooray, all that nagging finally paid off...now others can see what I saw in that ZDS months ago - a brand new Heretic episode! Not only that, a pretty damn good one too with some great set-pieces (notably in E1M9).

      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.
