About This File

Espi originally produced this map for my ninth speedmapping session (sbspd009.zip), back in 2003.

I've since spent a number of hours revising and recreating this map, as Esa did with the map he created for my eighth session.

A most excellent map. 5/5 if it were a map in a series, but 4/5 on its own, because the plasma rifle is placed after all of the enemies. Couldn't use it on anything, and it feels good to use that gun.

An old Espi speedmap, finished and revised by SargeBaldy in tribute to him? How can I say no? RIP Esa, and thanks Owen. 5/5 -essel

A fun and quick action-packed city map. Uses all three dimensions well to make the most of what is, in fact, a very confined playing area. Progression is straight-forward and the gameplay is violent but very fair. No secrets. Recommended. --4/5

very possibly the best doom 2 level I've ever played. Just frickin' awesome. A whole episode of maps like this one would be too awesome. Every mapper should try to emulate this simple style and gameplay. Great atmosphere, too. Very Doom 2 city. --Hellbent

It's a good 5-stars for a short map, very enjoyable few minutes of play and too the point. But I think I've seen this map before (http://www.doomworl d.com/idgames/index. php?id=12016).

If you like Doom 2 maps this one is put together alright and gets to the point. Nothing especially interesting, though. At least it doesn't waste too much time.

Very nice 3D layout with clean classic style texturing but monster placement kind of sucks. Open door leading to a small room, see some monsters inside, easily kill them without entering that room. This happens several times. So overall it's only OK, can be fun for 4-5 minutes.

      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.
