Very impressive, VERY spooky

Valhalla is a dark industrial techbase level that almost immediately sucked me in with its bleak atmosphere and amazing ambient music. Gameplay wise this level isn't too complex with its rather simple monster encounters that in a few spots provided a fair challenge for me on Ultra Violence. My only issues with Valhalla is that there are a few spots where the detailing can impede movement and cause pressing a necessary switch to be awkward.

This feels like the first level to a really awesome Q2 or Sin-era game. It is really gorgeous. The combat is somewhat conservative and often easy to keep at a safe distance. Some of the routing is a tad tricky but nowhere near the Eternal Doom end of the spectrum.

In terms of gameplay, level wise: The levels are complex, but they never get too convoluted. Once you figure out where the various key-switches are it simply becomes a matter of remembering how to get there. In terms of gameplay, enemy wise: Enjoy being fucked in the asshole with a porcupine. In conclusion, if you like well made maps that you'll probably never get to see legitimately cause you never survive that long, this is the wad for you.

Okay, this looks like an earlier version of Putrefier, and they really doesn't alter that much - same map layout, poor monster fighting, though this version doesn't have bad map navigation, so overall I'll rate this higher than Putrefier

Clearly Ed Cripps put a lot of effort into this level but there are some issues. A big plus is that there is a decent weapon provided from the start so there is no tedious monster tickling that is very common in other wads. Also it provides a lot of murder opportunities (a plus too). Unfortunately the layout can be confusing at times (but sometimes monsters point you at the right direction) and the switches are so tiny. Then it ends abruptly. It deserves 3.5 but I round it down to 3. - Zalewa.

Pretty good, but it has a lot of door hunting and stuff like that. Great deco, bland gameplay, and boring level design. Kept me busy at least. 3.5/5

One of the best Zdoom maps I've ever played. Beautiful architecture, very detailed and had one hell of an atmosphere. The only downside, was a little too easy, even on UV. Definitely want to see more maps from you. Keep up the awesome work. 5/5 from me.

Simply an amazing level, with great texturing and great lighting. the The only disappointing thing about it was the length, and the difficulty. It was way to easy (due to the presence of almost every weapon), and somewhat short. It was definitely worth playing through. I hope that you continue to make maps, because this is awesome.

Great level! Good detailing and atmosphere, and I like the music and ruined city in the background. It's fairly linear, but it doesn't feel forced. The monsters are well placed and make for good fights in the space. Best new level I've played in a while.-GreazyShorts

A very interesting and atmosphering map. Gameplay was a bit bland, I was disappointed at the lack of a final boss. It kept me interested for a while and it was quite enjoyable, but there's still something I found nit-picky about this. Nevertheless, this should'nt be skipped. 4/5 - Moti

Looks awesome, yet it is not the only thing that make a level awesome. The gameplay is slow(er), not very exciting and pretty easy. 4/5.

Visually perfect, this method lacks durability and surprises. + The graphics are gorgeous + The atmosphere is great + The level is well built - THE level - No true final boss - Nothing very exciting in the progression, the rhythm is always the same 4/5*

Nice level, but a little confusing in the manor of KDIZD, and no really inspiring moments.

As previous reviewers have stated, visually, this is a stunning level with fairly good game-play. My only gripe - although this will not detract from the overall score - is; one Ravenant does not tele-port in and thus 100% kills is not possible (UV -fast). Keep 'em comin' Ed! 5/5

Very nice. More ZDoom maps should be like this only perhaps a bit harder. Go play Raven Crypt Zalewa.

Wow, detail unlike any other wad and perfect game dynamics (perfect health/difficulty/mo nster placement). If you like detail, you will enjoy every *second* of this wad. First 5/5 I've given in years.

Design wise, this is simply a masterpiece. Gameplay wise it is also brilliant. I have no complaints at all, it's that good. A must play level. -TRRobin.

Very nice, good-looking architecture. Gameplay @ UV is not too difficult, monster placement is balanced. Parts of the level are imo a little bit too dark, this combined with invisible monsters is not original anymore nowadays. The end is disappointing because of a missing final fight. Music is well choosen. Overall: solid 4/5, so absolutely worth a try.

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.
