There's a lot mappers can learn from Erik's maps. Everything revolves around gameplay. The levels have a fantastic flow, battles are very challenging but winnable. The theme consistency, attention to detail, superb texturing and architecture are just breathtaking. The levels are short but action packed - just the way I like them, for there are few things that I hate more than long boring maps full of backtracking. That's why I love the Scythe series. Thank you Erik. 5/5

Good quality maps, but most of the music was pretty bad IMO, and the grey tech panel theme of the first two levels looked a little ugly, otherwise, excellent stuff as always

The texturing SUCKS. Erik Alm, what did you smoke when you textured this? Big disappointment after Scythe2. 2/5

The new enemies are interesting, and I like what Erik's doing with the glowy green and dark metal color scheme of the levels.

Most wads on Doomworld are 'play and throw away' or worse, this however is one that will go into my collection. I cannot wait for the rest of the set. 10/5

Episodic content, for all its upsides, doesn't address the massive blue balls one gets once they're done and are stuck waiting for the rest. Then you replay Scythe 2. Erik Alm may well be a magnificent bastard and advertising genius. 5/5

Decent quality overall, have yet to notice a stand-out flaw in design. 4 out of 5, for now: hopes to see more in Episode 3 (including those new monsters I saw at the end of Episode 2).

Erik Alm is GOD. This is the only conclusion you can come to after seeing the levels. Only a GOD can create something this perfect... even Jesus is jealous.

So far it looks to be the worst Scythe for me. The levels aren't aesthetically pleasing, and the gameplay is uninspired. And the music is shit. 2/5

^ Dang, I disagree. This is the best "Scythe" for me, by far. Excellent graphics, awesome music, great game play, and tons of originality. It's highly entertaining and loads of fun, all the while making you bust your butt to survive the maps. Personally, I'd rather see more "Scythe" WADs like this one. My only complaint is that it feels unfinished. I hope episode 3 comes out soon. 4.5/5

Short to medium-sized mapset. Layout is overall good, but misses a wow-factor. Texture use is ok but varies too little, it gets monotonous after some maps. Same counts for decoration. Gameplay @ UV starts good, but gets after a while dominated by very predictable monster popups. At the end the levels look, besides the layout differences, quite identical, which makes the set imho too large. Overall: 4/5, but not interesting enough for a replay.

Not as superb as the first two installments. However, the author manages yet again to create super-detailed maps with great lay-out and an atmosphere that I don't experience a lot when playing WADs. I'm hoping for the last 20 maps to be released, but I highly doubt it.

      this is a big ol' exploration map heavily inspired by e2m2, the doom 1 map of the same name. this map takes the concept of the crate maze and not only runs with it but improves heavily upon its inspiration; this map is bigger, harder, and more fun than the original in just about every way. it doesn't use doom 2's bestiary to its full potential - the arachnotron and pain elemental are nowhere to be found - but what it does use it uses well (though i do feel like the mancubus is a bit over represented in this). despite that, it's still fairly easy, with the hardest bit likely being the very start of the map when you have nothing but a shotgun and have to deal with dozens upon dozens of hellspawn, as well as the various encounters with the cyberdemon.   while it is large and it is comprised primarily of crate mazes, it's actually pretty easy to navigate your way around the map. it's divided into several distinct areas, all of which have landmarks to help the player know where exactly they are. i will say, however, that having almost nothing but crates does make the map feel a bit samey after a while, which for a map of this size isn't ideal.   overall, if you're big into exploration and aren't super concerned about not being challenged to an extreme degree, then there's no reason not to check this out. it's fun, rewarding, and while the looks can be a bit monotonous the gameplay is varied enough to keep things interesting.

      I've just finished playing all the maps, and seeing this TNT maps remade is a great feeling. Generally they are all a step above their original counter part, but also having played TNT Revilution I can't help but compare then, and putting the maps that pull the same inspiration side by side there is no contest, Renascence is left way behind, not to say there are bad, but Transduction and Fortress of Bullets are just in another League.
      Now, Taking advantage that I'm talking about Revilution it's map 18 (Hell's Signs) was made by Eternal and probrably is a little glimpse of what episode 2 of Renascence could've been. Finally, I find it very tragic that this isn't getting a sequel, but since Eternal still an active mapper so the hope isn't complete lost.
