Does not measure up to the greatness of Epic 1. Architecture is improved, but gameplay is so-so, ranging from obnoxious cheap ambushes in the early maps to tedious slaughtermaps to sprawling, head-smashingly complicated Eternal Doom-style maps (map28 appears to be a remake of The Dark Dome from Eternal Doom, only with the switches even harder to find). Also it's just too damn long for the themes and ideas it presents. 3/5 --Woolie

One of the very very best mega WADs I've seen so far, and I've played hundreds of levels at least. All new textured, the egyptian and alien themes make the feeling within the levels so different. And the author used some cool tweaks within the DOOM engine to create wonderful architecture. Only the last 2 levels (#29 + #30) are too monster loaded so I skipped them.

I got bored. The gameplay is boring and the texture usage is bland. The adventure/puzzle elements only make it more boring.

oh yeah, played UV with prboom-gl -turbo 255. It is probably very much more lethal without the turbo, what with all the rockets, revenant and vile blasts...

OMG, my favorite mapper delivers once again! The opening of level one Just says it all, doesn't it? The atmosphere is so incredible, the placement of everything - including the vases - is impeccable. The pacing is masterful - fast and slow - the battles are surprising, the rooms are varied. And I've only played the first two levels - can't wait to go further! Just wow, wow, wow, wow, and I'm a harder critic than most people. Thank you very much and best wishes. 6/5.

Loved it. Absolutely one of my top five favorite megawads. If you're a seasoned doom veteran and know how to strafe you'll be fine. Just have quicksave handy. The level architecture is gorgeous, no lying. 5 out of 5 stars!

In my opinion this is actually more fun if you use the ZDaemon survival server and maybe get another player or two to come along as regenerating items really does some work in fixing the frustrating gameplay elements. 3.5/5 in solo and 4.25/5 on ZDaemon Survival servers = 3.875/5 rounded up to 4/5 overall. BTW today's the 1 year anniversary of the first release and I wonder if Eternal will pump out his western themed project to mark it! Nov 23, 2011 - MegaDoomer

Fuck yeah, this wad is an atmospheric masterpiece! Best DooM 2 wad released this year for sure. Gameplay is challenging as hell and starts getting insane on UV in the last few levels. So HMP is reccommended for casual DooMers. Anyway, 5/5 from me. - DeathevokatioN

Well done. It'll surely take place in my collection of wads. 4/5, SKP.

Interesting gameplay but a serious lack of ammo, at least in the first levels. I ran out at lvl 4 or 5.

Wow! One of the best wads this year definitely. Up there with Speed of Doom. Atmosphere is great (which I was worried I wouldn't like), difficulty is high, plays a bit like plutonia (except for the last few maps, they're like Hell Revealed). Anyway, 5 stars from me for making me use actual strategy to get through fights. -DH85

Not as good as his more abstract works (eden.wad or Thirty two inch nails...or Hellground) but still a great set.4/5

Single player can rub the wrong way sometimes, but coop is a masterpiece once you use some of the wads to optimize its play. Survival @ 2 or 3 lives is just killer, honestly, a real blast. There's no denying in any mode that the maps are designed well and look very nice.

I loved Map 27 (Luxor) with it's 100's of Revenants but NOT Map 28 due to 100's of Revenants!! I got past the first huge 'circle strafe' only to find there was a LOT more to come - To be honest it was TOO MUCH and did my head in. 'Hell Revealed' did a better job of throwing loads at you and the Balance was better. For example, there is nothing worse then battling through Hell with just 6 percent health left only to find there's a blue health orb...But it's not (easily) possible to get too.
