Just what I've come to expect from 40oz, a relatively small but well done level. His maps need more stars than they have overall in my opinion (example, 3 stars on vmap40.wad? I think that deserves at least 4 easily). An underpraised mapper indeed.

Yay, birthday cake time! A really good map, again. My only criticism is that it's ridiculously easy (I only got hit once and, yes, I like to brag during people's birthday).

You know... birthday map. Good techbase style map. Short, simple, nice excess in ammo... Um, blah blah blah.

The roof feels like it scrapes your head sometimes, and the map feels more jammed then flowing. Average at best.

A good map, nothing special. I'm fun when playing it and it's not a bad for a birthday map. Oh, maybe something in it doesn't not work fine on G/ZDooM because I ran out of ammo and some enemies I didn't killed in UV... 4/5 -playerlin

Making so many birthday maps makes you look like a whore.

Much as I'd expect from 40oz at this point. If he'd release a mapset of this quality it'd be great. Fun, easy, couple of nice touches, looks and sounds good. 4* -Phobus

I will give you 4 out of 5 my friend. Nice little easy level that I didn't want to end. 1-30-11

5-minutes wad. Solid but not spectacular architecture. Gameplay @ UV is well balanced but nothing special, only basic tactics are necessary to complete it. Very (imo too) much ammo and health makes it even easier. 3.5/5 instead of 4/5 because it is very short and UV is way to easy. As this wad shows potential, I'm curious for a follower.

Great map, but you probably could have crammed another secret in somewhere.

I still can't believe you can make such good looking maps in such a small time. Bastard! :)

      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.

      If it were renamed "Garbage Dump," I would have given it a better rating.

      A large, but not very prolong map, which is interesting to explore. I liked the author's strategy to place strong weapons in well-protected places. To get them the player need to pass a kind of test. The difficulty depends on the player's luck. It is important not to miss the shotgun at the very beginning, otherwise entangled corridors can lead the player to a situation in which he will be easy prey, left without ammo. Visually, the map looks neat, another good example of using standard textures.
