I don't see why this has such a high score. It looks terrible, and it sure as hell plays terrible. A few shitty ZDoom features do not save a shitty map. 0/5

I see why this has such a high score. It looks great, and it sure as hell plays great. A few cool ZDoom features save a cool map. 5/5

I didn't like the beginning part (up to the teleporter, minus the first room; that was cool) too much, as killing imps and pistolers with a pistol is boring IMO. But afterwards, a very well done map, and quite long too. I rarely found either an excess or deficit of health and ammo. I'll give it 5 stars, albeit hestitantly because of the beginning, but I enjoyed the rest enough that I've decided to just forgive the beginning, though in technicality I am dropping half a star for it. 4.5(5)/5

I'm inclined to agree with the first dude. This was very creepy and well paced. Though I wonder whether it should have been split into two levels.

^Agreed. Although this is a very nice looking map, it is definitely not the best start ever. It is also one of those 'run around killing loads of easy monsters with a pistol' maps - I got bored in a minute flat. 4/5 -1 -1 = 2/5 try harder!

*gasp* Well-used stealth monsters?! I like this, a lot. Architecture looks good, nice teleport effect with the faces, and good music choice. Nice corrupted base-style map.

An original and quite impressive modern ZDoom map, replacing MAP01. A difficult yet not imbalanced techbase that is definitely worth a look, and should provide ample challenge. 4/5

I thought that this map was really good. To the guy above me it is not one of those pistol maps. Its paced so you have the pistol just till you get through the starting area. Give the guy a break. 5/5

This deserves 4/5 but due to terrible bug it's unbeatable in cooperative. Next time make sure your items have correct flags set, check the blue key. 1/5 - Zalewa

      Way too many demons, cacodemons, and barons to kill, I got bored quickly. The design is clean and pleasant though, a little unusual even.

      Even though I do not like the idea of aliens being the doom demons, I love this wad, is beatiful because uses the things I love, the space bases and exploration of the universe   the second and third episode, they are really masterpieces because you see the amount of work of the creator and you really see his dedication   also some maps are ruins something that really valued since I am a lover of history so it was fascinating   Although I got stuck on some maps since the switches were too hidden, I managed to get through   I think the only thing I find bad is that their palette destroys a few mods, but if you do not care about the colors, then this is a wad that I recommend!   and also the end, it's something that really, you say what?   but they are details and if you like the pretty and funny maps I recommend it   5/5 Gaia74

      Very good tech-base and, later on, cave/temple and again tech visuals, made in a classic polished style. Tough level on UV, particularly the initial stage until you reach the big room holding the rocket launcher. From there health and ammo are more abundant, so the difficulty decrease, but later on there are surprises encounters that can catch you out of guard very easly, including the really interesting ending area.

      Done with these settings: - GLBoom+ 2.5.1.4. complevel 9.
      - Ultra-Violence.
      - Continuous combined with pistol start mindset. Pistol starts in maps 05, 10, 11.
      - Saves every 5-10 minutes or so.   A partially cool map collection from various people. It revolves around the same old story about a newer demon invasion, in this case they corrupted an underground base and spread all around the territory, turning every nook into hell. The maps sort of follow that narrative through the visual design, that at least from the second map and beyond, since the first level is simply an introduction. There are plenty of hellish neat-looking techbases to explore either on surface or underground, including one level in a Quake style with dark rusted metal textures. In combination, some maps present an Inferno-ish look with marble/red/rocky structures and lots of flesh to step on. I dig the latest two in particular, with exclusively clean visuals and great usage of fireblu for portals. The deep blue sky fits in about every single map, giving each an extra touch of spookiness. Well, and a subtle TNT vibe, or maybe that was because of some of the music selections. I really liked the midis in map 10 and 11, too bad there is no information in the text file about them.    As far as authors styles, it's a varied compilation ranging from traditional easygoing combat to series of lethal encounters, and some peculiar setups involving environmental hazards. I would say, gameplay-wise, the further I got into, the better it turned, mainly because the first half seemed to show the more experimental side of the wad, where the pace is kind of a rollercoaster, and some choices felt tacked on. I mean, the opening map is already questionable, just a dull switch hunt on a quasi-deserted island, not to mention the copious invisible barriers. Printz's map 04 is perhaps the largest and weirdest one. It has a lot of gimmicky ideas, including an outdoors fight where the player's affected by wind, which I wasn't very sold on, aside from slow and unclear progression. On the other side, Craigs' and Stewboy's are peacefully linear and simple to comprehend, and the two by Death Destiny and Butts are as wild and engaging as hitscan-centric maps go, without ever turning into annoyance, unless that's not your thing. The second half of the wad is the section I found more of my taste, aside from having mixed emotions about the last level. The seventh map was a nice short appetizer, and I enjoyed a lot the entries by Icecreamsoldier and Dutch Devil, with an ultimate hitscan hell touch and secrets research. While the increase in difficulty is gradual throughout the wad, the pinnacle might come as a slap in the face to people not used to that particular style in the last two D-D maps, like myself for example. The final map is about tight setpieces involving at least one archvile after the other, while you run around naked (no armor) carrying your SSG. Sometimes there was an escape, and other times things easily went real bad in less than a second. I would suggest to take it on a lower skill assuming you urge a security pickup. His second to last map was actually more cramped, close to unforgiving with the bumpy architecture, but somehow I sorted it out with calm and joy. Guess that makes me a "Doom god"?. I'll pass.    Secret-wise, I had issues to find any in map 04, one of them wasn't even hinted at all. In map 10 I wasn't able to trigger one of them, probably due to the sector being too small. Other than those, well, depending on your gameplay styles, you might be able to ease up the majority of the mapset if you commit yourself to explore every nook, not that I'm really in favor of the whole idea to be fairly honest, but the design of the status bar misled me. I would suggest to take a good look to map 05 via iddt, just to check some hidden stuff that are out of reach for reasons unknown... Anyway, favourite maps are 06, 08, 09 and 10. The others varied from fun to dull and everything in between.   Overall, Dark Resolution 2008 was, weird, but nonetheless very interesting, save for a few cases. If you're looking for mapsets with varied content, or a die-hard fan of the double barreled, this could be a good place to stop by. My rate is 6/10.
