Rarely I try to play some Heretic maps because somehow it's not inspiring. Now this megawad tries to do something good with heretic, new more powerful weapons and places that stay in mind and are original. How heretic should be. Some levels are too big though. 4.5/5 - Optimus

Nice effort, but....falls short somehow. Still average, though. 3/5. (for something good from this year, see 16357 or 16441)

A lot of nice ideas and atmosphere, but gets a bit wasted because of quite bad difficulty balance (had to godmode in a number of fights) and unpolished sections (had to noclip a couple times to escape, too). IMHO, a partially-missed excellent opportunity. 3*

The first impression is WTF? when playing this, but when replaying it I realised that the new weapons are actually very good, and the level design not nearly as bizarre. It really does feel like a quest you're fighting though, however some dodgy new enemies sometimes throw the whole thing off. Flying D'Sparil was very annoying too.

First up this wad deserves credit for redesigning the whole weapon arsenal yet still making it feel like it's truly Heretic. Same goes for the enemies, with the odd exception. The book-weapon is the most useless thing I have ever seen (especially since the different spells are selected at complete random). Level design is of perfect complexity to the Heretic universe. Keep forgetting that there is 8 weapons tho.

      Solid. Worth a play and addition to your personal DOOM archive. Interesting custom monsters. Creative construction and some exciting encounters, especially in the late stages. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Would recommend.

      Map 01: The whole map is one big fight, and I personally really liked it. I enjoyed running around the map using the artifacts littered around in order to kill the swarms of baddies. My only real complaint would be having to kill all the enemies to progress which could be pretty annoying if one of them hides in a really obscure spot.   Map 02: Pretty classic hexen map. It was good but it was the most forgettable map in the wad due to the relatively generic theme. Also the swamp key segment was probably the worst part of the wad due to the amount of stalkers and lack of health. It also fell into the trap of over using slaughtaurs which got annoying pretty fast.   Map 03: ...The idea behind this map and the atmosphere was extremely cool. I personally loved the puzzle with the 5 switches near the start and it was probably my favorite part of the wad. But... The lack of railings made falling off a very common occurrence and the layout got confusing at times. I don't know if it was intentional but in order to get to Yorik's statue I had to jump on the pillars used as decoration. The main complaint would be the over use of wendigos at the start and a pretty anti-climactic boss fight. The sublevel was really fun to explore too.   General: It seems common for hexen wads to do this but there was no 4th weapon. The 4th weapon is the funnest weapon to use and while it could break the difficulty in some sections I think it would be worth it because the majority of the time you are stuck hitting things with your second weapon which feels repetitive.   Overall: While I was pretty negative in this review I still gave it four stars for a reason and that is because this wad is a lot of fun. You could tell every room had thought put into it and the entire wad is just gorgeous. If you can look past the small problems this wad is a amazing experience with a solid story as well. Must play for any hexen fan.

      1998. Nice Heretic map with a good flow. Resource management required. I had a lot of fun learning/playing this one.

      Very good. I prefer Map 23 on to the early stuff tbh. I only didn't give it 5 stars cause I think Speed of Doom takes a similar style and does it better.

      This is the Alpha of Doom... I mean, we are not going to fool ourselves that it is not bad, it is very bad, mainly due to the lack of many things in the HUD   so honestly I didn't like it, for an Alpha it's fairly good at that time, but even so it didn't provoke anything since I wasn't there at that time at all
