About This File

This pwad replaces episode #2 with 9 new levels. The level layouts and difficulty of these levels are compareable to DOOM's 'INFERNO'.

This pwad include following nine brandnew missions:

1.) Entrance 2.) Catacombs 3.) Lab of Horror 4.) Outcasted Building 5.) Bloodletting 6.) Weird Ruins 7.) Walk thru Hell 8.) Way out Sec.) Mysterious Halls

Every single mission was designed to be great for single player games. But I know, very many of you love deathmatch showdowns. So I desided to add deathmatch starts and additional weapons. None of this nine missions is huge, all missions can be finished within 15 minutes, provided you do not fool around.

One of the best old school episodes I've played. I've had this on my PC as "bas_evil.wad" long ago. Neat job, e2m3 and e2m4 my favorites.

This felt like an un-released episode. Awesome job. Last level sort of sucked though.

Good levels, Id-quality in appearance with challenging gameplay. Recommended.

Since you changed episode and level names, I'll give it a 3 rather than a 2. The quality is mediocre, but if you were to give permission to use your levels as a base for other levels (like with kill1), it would be a 5

I'm pretty sure that this episode has been released before and its pretty good. It works in Zdoom with no problem.

It's a decent episode overall. BTW this appears to be duplicated as phell.zip (id=15915). The only thing changed that I can see is the name of the wad in the text file, but not in-game. I didn't notice any changes to the wad other than renaming it, but maybe I'm missing something. Just wanted to inform of a potential duplicate (however it's not stolen; the author in the .txt is still Ralf, thankfully).

Best classic oldschool doom1 episode wad since a long time! There are some interesting trap and other ideas here and a lot of classic action and simplistic yet nice architecture (a lot of inspirations from original levels, nicely mixed too) 5/5 - Optimus

Very solid pack! The architecture isn't as great as it could have been for a pack made in 2009, but it makes up for this in the game play department. For once, I can tell the author did a lot of playtesting. The difficulty was very balanced, with ammo placement equalized throughout each level. There were some very fun battles, although the last level was kind of disappointing as someone else had mentioned. E1M6 and E1m7 were great. 4/5

^Yeah it's quite a solid episode. But E1M6 and E1M7 aren't replaced! If you're referring to the original maps then yes those maps are great but so is all of KDitD (the best original Doom episode, IMO) and we've played them thousands of times before so why mention it here especially when there is still a shareware file in these archives? Anyways rating, 4/5 for the episode. It also wasn't made in 2009, though. id=12536 (from 2004) is absolutely identical to this, as far as I can tell.

This wad file is dated 1998? Didn't expect that while examining things especially this is totally good quality stuff if it's really from that timeframe. It was name-changed to Planet Hell at some point in 2009 (should have been a note to remove this, since archives don't accept duplicates) but I can't find a single map change.

Fairly good, but lacks originality. The levels are peppered with "tributes" or "rip-offs" of original id levels. The gameplay is good in the first few levels, but then gets worse, especially in the final level, which was a letdown. 3 stars.

      It took me several tries to unwrap the map but I really enjoyed it. J Flynn still amazes me. A tricky great map.

      This map is beautiful to look at and amazing to play. It reminds me of a something I'd see from a map in the late 90s and I love it.

      I'm breaking up with Valiant to start my new love with Hellbound. Best DOOM mapset that has been made. I have replayed it more than once with Brutal DOOM Platinum and Final Doomer(Hellboundguy class) and I still can't get tired of it. Cities, hellish maps, tech bases, I just love it. I also really like the combination of E2M1, E2M2 and E2M3 in Map19. Amazing stuff right there, I strongly recommend this

      I forgot to review it when I first finished it, but I played it again with final doomer so I think it's time.   Ancient aliens is beautiful, and it plays as well as it looks.  SkillSaw gives some of his best maps in his career, only matched by his heartland performance.  But the heavy lifting is really done by the presentation, stewboys midis always fit, and the fact the soundtrack is bespoke is incredible.  I personally enjoy all of the maps, only the secret maps have any issues fitting in, and secret maps are allowed to not be great.  My only issue with the wad are the inconsistent 3rd episode, and ironically it's skillsaw's work in that episode that is probably the worst (So good, but not as good as the earlier work in the wad) as the rest of the team turns in great work.

      Valiant was hyped up in my mind as a future favorite megawad, Often proclaimed as the best megawad by many.   But it is imperfect. 1. The Super chaingun is lame, not a fan, it want's to be the ultimate weapon, but it is never set up to be powerful, most enemies are too tough too be taken down by it without justifying use of a better weapon, and moments where cannonfodder are plentiful enough to justify it are too rare.  Most importantly chaingun sniping is limited, I almost wish for a regular chaingun because its ability to pick off enemies from a distance was that valuable for me.  The pistol isn't a good replacement for it, so a gap is left to pursue an overlap in the arsenal.  The custom enemies are fun all of them are great.    2. The maps are divided into episodes Ep1 - Earth tech base that is fun Ep2 - Waste episode that is ok I think for 2 or 3 maps but starts to suck later Ep3 - The Darkwave episode Ep4 - Hell that is hell to play Ep5 - Lunatic reloaded (I liked lunatic so it's fun)   The aggressive red and orange maps just unfortunately suck sometimes.  The maps aren't bad but annoying and it feels like they suck out the fun.  The other 3 episodes are fun most of the time but are imperfect.  I love custom monsters and weapons so I had that to look forward too every map, but the wad just isn't fun sometimes.   3.  Maps are detailed, but I personally enjoy vanilla maps so it doesn't appeal to me in that regard.  But In theory you wouldn't notice it because of the speed of play, the best valiant maps would be hard to recreate from memory because they would force the player to go fast.  But that also clashes with Skillsaws love of map 24 the Chasm, I wanted to idclip so many times because I fell off a thin ledge or didn't do the platforming section as well, I didn't but the restraint required was immeasurable.   4.  The aracnorb, cool in theory but combined with high ceilings made me want to hang myself, thankfully Skillsaw made the ceiling so high I can't hang myself from it because there isn't a ladder long enough.   5. I don't have a 5th point but I like the number 5 so I felt disgusting not having a 5th point.   To conclude, Valiant is fine and most of the enemies are cool but it has issues, play at your own risk.
