Awesome work - high quality in layout, detail and gameplay throughout 35 maps. Really one of the best megawads out there. 4.5/5

The first 15 levels are mediocre, but the second half of the wad is excellent! Maps 25-30 are some of the best hell levels I have ever played.

Message to Don Paolito: mostly good maps but I'm getting pissed time and time again because there are no hints for the secrets. Doing this for yourself? - still sucks for the player. Want players to feel the secrets depending on the situation? - still sucks for the player who has to hump every fucking pixel and isn't a clairvoyant. I'm at map 11, stopped and picked this up twice already, but this time I'm done here. 3/5

Play this only for the hell maps (and the nazi maps), the rest is actually pretty boring.

5 - This is a REALLY great wad, I haven't touched Doom for at least 5 months, and am glad this wad was finally finished...I do wish the music went along with the levels a lot more...it almost seemed like I was listening to the same music over and over again...I am not used to this in Wads made by Paul and Kristian. But as far as the actual levels go, a great wad. I just wish the music was more engrossing like 2002 A Doom Odyssey.

This is great so far, but it seems a lot of door triggers are broken in PrBoom. I can mostly IDCLIP around them, but what fun is that? :/

Starts off kind of slow and plain with rather unimpressive maps. But it becomes something very complex and engaging as the levels pass. The levels become more visually interesting, the challenges become more complex, and the level designs become more original. It's definitely a great WAD to play, and it's worth the boring beginning. Definitely one of the most entertaining and challenging WADs out there.

Gameplay was pretty vanilla and boring. Some levels really stood out amongst the copy/paste jobs. Overall a good megawad, but not a great one.

Hopelessly overrated... While Aro's maps are passable for the most part (this review does not apply to them), it confirms again that pcorf SUCKS as a mapper. From all the copy paste and dull repetitive symmetry (too lazy to even vary monster placement in the different rooms wtf) to the awful gameplay (either predictable snoozefest or annoying traps) to the unmarked secrets... Have always taken care to steer clear of pcorf wads but gave this a try because of all the hype... big MEH from me

Well while I was looking on another unrelated forum it struck me: Occasional symmetric designs in Doom aren't as bad as so many reviews here it out to be. That's why I enjoyed this wad thoroughly and am giving it 5 stars, well done!

The earlier maps are... mehx! i almost wanted to delete this wad after repeating what i need to do for the first 15 maps or so. and what happened to some of the musics? this wad is too much of the mix of the perfect and the terrible. play this wad only for the later maps if you ask me.

It has some awesome thematic shifts as well as a constantly changing atmopshere, but I think this is a diversity that doesn't extend to the authors' mapping styles and serves as much to draw out the consistent downfalls in design (such an ongoing symmetry and clean-cut geometry) as it does to keep the player afloat with interest in this regard. A finely crafted megawad to be sure, but not courageous enough to be standout and otherwise too predictable to play through. [3.5]*

Well done guys! This is a spectacular set of maps. Everything beautifully and seamlessly flows on every level; fun, challenging, entertaining and engrossing. Most certainly 'Cacowards' material. 5/5 -jb

      I have really enjoyed playing MOTM, it features very nice traps, with a good difficulty level and great graphics/environment. Well placed ammo which makes it balanced against some harder fights. Overall very well done.

      Wad begins in a sense as a sample of the idea "let's do it as Id did" and, perhaps, analogs comparable to him in terms of such level will not be easy to find. In subsequent episodes authors deviate from this idea and it's already acquires his own style. Contain 4 episodes, each of which are lesser or greater extent copies the general bypass that was laid down in the extended version of the original Ultimate Doom. Revenants and elementals of pain here, respectively, will not available. Such an approach, on the one hand, will appeal to those who miss exactly "that very style", on the other hand, even supporters of such will face the fact that it was interesting "then" and today it has become anachronism thing in case of game mechanics and is objectively inferior to options which are typical for less "old-school" wads.   Settings and other:   * GzDoom. * Mod Complex Doom. * 38 levels, 6 of them secret. * The plot of E1-E3 covers events similar to The Ultimate Doom, E4 - Doom II. classic bosses - 2 barons of hell, cyberdemon, mastermind, which, in this case, instead of E2, is located at the end of E3. * Cunningly hidden secrets. For this reason I missed the bulk of those, as well as in general, in terms of knocking out numbers close to 100%, here I have made the least progress against the background of the previously reviewed creations. * As in the original Doom episodes are not loaded one by one. Each must be passed separately. * The monsters are also arranged according to the spirit of the original, even if you play with Complex Doom. For example in E1, until the finale, you will only meet ordinary zombies, imps and pinkies. * Difficulty - "Ultra-Violence". * There are false trap exits on a number of levels. * Plasmagun can be picked up on E2M1. To take it use the switch to the right of the exit - to the right of the place where the blue key was a section with a red one will open. This key in turn allows you to open the door which leads to the desired weapon. * Often a checkerboard black-and-white floor acts as a decorative element.   Secret levels.   ? 1. On E1M9: Quarantine Silos I did not find a way out, but judging by the video from YouTube it is nothing interesting. ? 2. E1M0: Tom's Halls. Also did not step in. It looks more interesting, but, again, nothing special. The name reflects the spirit of the map - many long corridors. * 3. E2M9. Castle of Illusion. You can get here from E2M5. To do this you will need to find the blue key in a small secret behind the wall, not far from the switch which is relatively close to the main exit. A red key can be found behind the blue door, which will lead to a secret exit. The main feature of the level, as the name suggests, is the fact that it is largely based on the idea of expanding the level from the same episode. * 4. E3M9. Lake of Fire. Oddly enough, the usual exit from the E3M4 leads here. The level is rather not a secret, but a bonus one. ? 5. Exit to E4M9: Vile Cross is on E4M2, but I have not figured out how to get there. Judging by YouTube the secret map itself is quite ordinary, nothing interesting. ? 6. Exit at E4M0: RGC Alpha is behind the exit on E4M8: No End In Sight (note: not sure about that it was the last level, perhaps forgot the right name), which is a huge complex map with a lot of masterminds and cyberdemon. I only collected 4 out of 15 local secrets and could not find a way to exit. E4M0 itself is a sufficient compact map, playing on the theme of mechanisms and gears.   Pros:   + The spirit of "vanilla". + E1M5 - Warehouse. A classic warehouse with lots of pitfalls to accompany a long-familiar melody. + E1M8 - Enigma. A direct reference to the E1 finale. + E2M3 - Contagion Engine. + E2M5 - Deep Storage. Wisely designed warehouse combined with sewerage system. + E3M9 - Lake of Fire.     + E3M7 - Netherworld Citadel. A huge complex map on which there are 747 enemies, many dangerous zones and switches, as well as as many as 20 secrets, among which there are notable ones, such as     what can come in handy after visiting a local attraction - cemetery.     Go down and the barons of hell will rise from the graves in an attempt to stop the player from entering the crypt, where the red key is hidden. Will you be able to cope with those by fighting the last battle on the level, or escape with the key, leaving the summoned demons alone?... I chose the latter, stopping the counter of killed enemies at 716/747 and collected secrets at 10/20. Even with the BFG in the arsenal dealing with around 30 barons proved to be a daunting task. As well as being able to contemplate the entire map, collecting leftover secrets can also be time consuming. + E4M3 - Square Zero. A compact location with a yellow key hidden in secret. Can assume that it opens an exit to the secret level? It's not - it's frees the cyberdemon.     + E4M4 - Wartorn Precinct.     + E4M6 - Sanctuary of Filth. + E4M7 - Vacuum Consortium. An arena with a large number of enemies, caves and cacodemones, an oval-like location with many barons, imps and lost souls in combination with extremely thin paths for movement, then a few more small arenas with different opponents in an abstract space. In my case, the counter froze at 541/546. It seems that not all demons were able to cope with movement in such kind strange structures.     + E4M8: No End In Sight. The last level directly refers to the epilogue of Doom II. There was also a place for two easter eggs, one of which plays up the last screensaver of the original.   Contras:   - Directly opposite to the first point from pros. If you are not a supporter of this then a significant part of the maps, especially in episode 1, will seem terribly boring for you, or, like they said, "boring as hell".

      Great use of scripts to surpise you in all sorts of ways, and to keep you on your toes, and the detail is top-notch. Sadly, gameplay wise it leans more towards annoying rather than challenging, with rooms that leave little to bo breathing room, and a couple of encounters that are straight up unfair. Plus, the almost-way-too-happy power metal tune playing along feels completely out of place in here. The creator clearly has skill. This just isn't that enjoyable - at least for those looking for sth more closer to classic doom action.

      Officially recognized but boring wad of 9 levels with large-scale maps. Nothing similar with original E1. The number of enemies grows as you progress - combinations of 200+ / 400+ / 500+ opponents vary.     Settings and other:   * GzDoom. * Mod Complex Doom. * 9 levels, 1 of them secret. * Difficulty - "Ultra-Violence".     * The exit to the secret level is on M3. You will need to find the blue key to open the door, which leads later to the secret exit. Before walk to another location, which opens with a secret red small switch.   Pros:   + M8. + Soundtrack.   Contras:   - Quite a standard set of mediocre maps. Nothing remarkable against the huge background of the mass of other wads. - Perhaps I missed something, but on the M8 one of the switches may not work and it will not be possible to enter the location in the south. So. Noclip. On the same map there is a strange separate square area with 2 mastermaydans in the west of the map.

      - Old school map design from the 90s - Small maps - Easy to beat - Many unpleasant design features like uncomfortable narrow passages, many unnecessary switch flipping and boring repetitive actions,...
