      For me, at the moment I'm writing this review, #1 WAD of onces that I've played / seen / heared.   Options and things:
      * GZDoom. * Have played with "Complex Doom" modification. * Difficult - "Ultra-Violence". * 100% secrets and enemies. * No annoying / too hard maps found.
      * #9 in community top.   Pros:   1. + Great, own, unique style level design. I just tell a few words about some of the levels:

      * MAP07. Bad Reception. Small arena. Tough fight.
      * MAP08. Hide and Seek. Small warehouse map with 18 enemies in total. But this enemies - arches and pinkies. And if you start with the pistol - there is only chain gun on the map in additional to it. If you using Complex Doom add-on - those arches might be way tougher then regular onces.
      * MAP09. Broken Records. A lot of hard enemies in small arena that is look like library.
      * MAP12. Dead End. Nice, circle like, map.
      * MAP15. Gladiator type arena. Literally. First you fight with some upcoming enemies. After "viewers" (another demons) starting to fight with themselfs and you.    
      * MAP20: The Mouth of Madness. The name speaks for itself - from a kind of mouth, from the very start of the map, hordes of demons move directly to the doomguy. And BFG will not save you at all. Strategy here - as fast as you can use switch on the left side of the map (climb the islets) and then run and use switch on the right. Break through the pack of barons to teleport, which is on the right side, in lava, and hide in the top type location. Wait till most of the enemies will kill each other. I've attached some screens.     * MAP21. Indigestion. No ammo or weapons. Only pistol with few shots. Tough enemies. As result you need to use local traps and enemies attack enemies strategy to deal with, in total, 135 of such onces.
      * MAP28. Necropolis. ~ 1411 enemies. And mostly no regular place to hide from them. Few cyberdemons, a lot of cacodemons.
      * MAP30. Game Over. That what can happen if you will play Doom too much... Or, by other hand, some Silent Hill 4: The Room atmosphere here.   2. + Horror-inspired music on some horror like levels. 3. + Combines just fine with "Complex Doom" modification.
      4. + Challenging. 5. + Unexpected gameplay twists.
      Contras:

      Zero, but,

      * - If you play with Complex Doom you can stuck on MAP29 in case here was unique boss and mod just change it to it's own regular one type. So. To proceed further use console, ~, and write there "MAP MAP30". MAP31 can be beaten with pistol start without much troubles.

      Talking about A.L.T. and it convulted development leads us to nothing. And by now, there is not much recollection of what was the original story Azamael intended for the megawad. But that doesn't stopped Lainos, BeeWen and the (B0S) Clan to make what i can say for sure is the most deep and psychological Doom experience out there. The storytelling details around the maps, the oppresive atmosphere, the leitmotiv used all around, the mystery, alienation, and huge sense of dread and loneliness this megawad achieved is something never seen or experienced before.   Storytelling megawad are somewhat the most difficult to make. Why? Well, the rudimentary engine of Doom only allows a few text screens, and so, mappers has to be smart and cunning to achieve the desirable effect... All has to be made without breaking gameplay and making it boring.   This megawad is one of the projects that is at the peak of storytelling megawads, and there are not much that can equal this level of storytelling. This are the kind of megawads that i crave for. Full of details, full of atmosphere, full of deep thinking. Works that are artistic and imaginative, breaking the standars and passing by uncomprehended on their own time. Fortunately, history was kind with this work, and now it attained the reward it deserve.

      Thanks to all that worked on this project: Lainos, BeeWen, Wraith, Azamael, Chaingunner and all the members of the (B0S) Clan. This is truly a work of art in its purest form.

      Sluggish gameplay with little new to offer. Traps aren't creative nor is combat fun. Also, the first map has annoying pole running section and is very dark. At least geometry showed some effort.

      For 1995 standards the level has very good visuals, okay custom gfx and above average level design. The map itself is not very big, but it´s still fun to play.

      The Good:   - Lots of ammo, etc to keep you alive - Continuous MAPS (which I like) - Decent music - Plenty of switches that don't keep you guessing what each does - Not a slaughterfest, but will keep your trigger finger busy - Some very clever secrets thrown into the mix   The Bad:   - The Crimson Canyon Map (Gawd, I absolutely HATED this Map) - this should have been the best MAP in the game but it was disastrous. - Lots of cramped levels. - WAYYYYYY too many Hell Knights.   This WAD had so many that I wondered why this WAD wasn't called "Hell Knight" - Very little puzzles - Most secret's "treasures" were unrewarding - Monsters that appear from thin air   All in All:   For the year this WAD was created, it's got good eye candy. I really got into this WAD until I hit MAP 07. After that, it kinda went straight downhill for me because of the cramped hallways. MAP 12, the last level, was very anti-climatic due to lack of any kind of boss. The whole project just felt abandoned.   Cacoward worthy? Not by today's standards. Perhaps back in the day. Type of WAD you'll soon forget but worth a play.   3 Stars out of 5.
