About This File

The Nadir is a short (~2 hours) Hexen adventure that aims to extend the experience once the vanilla game and expansion end. I found myself wanting to play more Hexen after completing these, so the result wasThe Nadir. This is a project I created as a personal goal and for my own enjoyment, but decided later in the creation process that I would share it with others who enjoy this game and user-created material.

The level design isn't bad. Pretty standard Hexen-style stuff. Some of the visuals / settings are pretty cool. Although texture misalignment could have been a LOT better, considering it's for ZDoom. The new crossbow weapon was pretty cool, but the new melee weapon was useless. Also the author should've incorporated their ammo count into the HUD (you only see it when you switch to them). Most most of the new monsters were annoying (especially the poisonous golems with their poison clouds). The final boss battle really sucked, the arena was awkward to move in and his attacks / patterns were overly confusing. He constantly sends out homing projectiles that don't actually harm you, cluttering the battlefield and making it difficult to tell what's going on. I think this wad would've been solid if it just stuck to classic Hexen monsters.

Slopes looked out of place here - every sloped surface could have been replaced with stairs. The only enemy I really didn't like was the Acid Golems, and the power of the Dark Gargoyle's fireball was far too great for its size. I find it is truer to the Hexen feel with its back-and-forth between levels design than many wads that have more levels than this. The new melee weapon I barely used while playing as the Mage though.

dylux: Too short. Trying to figure out where 4 MB of this file went because it wasn't on gameplay. Must be on new monsters. Very unmemorable WAD...nothing special.

While I don't care much for this Hexen wad being GZdoom specific, its not a bad short hub. 3/5

Epic... wait... ah... well, it's not bad and have some fun on it but those new monsters are annoying(not the solider). No comment on BOSS fights and visual effects...but, I think it can be better...Hexen + GZDooM should not just like this I think. 2.5/5 -playerlin

2/5 for effort, this needs more work still.

Terribly unfun. The level design is interesting at times, but hideous at others. Ugly use of slopes and particle fountains abound. The author included the most annoying monsters he could find on the Realm667 bestiary and two weapons from Heretic which are semi-broken. Proper placement of monsters is forgone in favor of using the new monsters as often as possible. Meh, 2/5 stars for effort.

Hexen doesn't deserve this.

      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.
