As someone who barely plays any wad made after 1996, this is a refreshing option. ALL the levels have the same feel as the Plutonia mapset.

 

However, the 2nd and 3rd episodes could have had more fights. (Map 27 has only 127 monsters and is not a very fun map). Aside from this, most of the maps have very good design and I do enjoy a good Thomas Van Der Velden map and a Tatsurd-cacocaco map.

 

Hopefully someone can make a TNT re-visited in this same style. Fingers crossed :)

Done with these settings:

 

- Crispy Doom 3.5

- Hurt Me Plenty, Ultra-Violence.

- Continuous on skill 3, pistol starts on skill 4 for the DW Megawad Club.

- Saves every 10 minutes or so.

 

This is a great community mapset. Many original ideas and also a lot of homages. The visuals are pure Plutonia, textures and detailing are on the iwad side, for example, lots of wooden pillars and walls in square shape, invisible bridges, vines, skull non-switches, and more. I like that many maps have unreachable spaces just for scenery. Midis are really good, particularly the ones from Xaser's maps (15 and 25), and map 11 sticks in my mind too. 

 

Gameplay is fun in the majority. Some maps are pure tribute of the iwad, including combat. There's a good variety of themes, sometimes triple key hunt, other times is straightforward linear, and other times non-linear exploratory. Progression is hardly ever obscure, aside from a few maps, you are usually exempted of backtracking, which is great. Most maps can be short, but a few are particularly really really long, map 15 is the best example. It's still a good map though, depends on your tastes. Combat is heavy, but in most cases you are able to elude big fight scenarios. Plutonia has never been about constantly closing you in traps with timers. It does have a lot of incidental challenging encounters. This doesn't mean it's always going to be fun, for example, chaingunners are abundant, and sometimes an obnoxious presence. Tributes of battles are present: there's a standout map dedicated to archviles, in the style of Hunted, including many other enemies; another one almost exactly like The Twilight, that is a new arena revealed and god mode chaingunners for sure; and the obvious secret maps alike Cyberden and Go 2 It, the last one goes crazy with infighting and I love that. Plus many more memorable parts, like a hitscan hell trap reminiscent to Ghost Town, or a ring of enemies similar to The Sewers, or an invisible bridge surrounded by snipers a la Aztec. 

 

Secrets are not always easy to find, I like the use of hidden switches which encourage good observation. They are mostly powerful and needed to make the gameplay smoother.

 

Favourite maps are 06, 10, 16, 23, 27, and 28. Least favourite maps are 18, 20, 21 and a "honorable" mention to map 30 for being a real nightmare to play. The rest of the maps are good, map 29 is mostly memorable for it's exploratory ambient, for example.

 

Overall, the mapset is fun, it's all Plutonia in the best way. So if you're a fan of the iwad's harshest quirks, I recommend it. My rate is 8/10.

has quite a few good maps throughout, and is quite Plutonic. I do not like MAP11 (arch-viles), 15 (where the fuck am I going) or 20 (chaingunners in the worst places possible) at all though. also you can get stuck in MAP31. worth a play apart from that stuff.

Disappointing compared to the original and PL2. Starts out promising but fades into small, cramped and aesthetically boring maps. Maps 11, 31 and 32 especially don't deliver. The story text is also epic maymay tier and doesn't help the overall lacking atmosphere. Map 15 is good though. 2/5

I enjoyed this pack less than 1 and 2, but that is to be expected with the fluctuating quality of a community project like this. Still decent

A mixed bag of generally lower quality maps than Plutonia 2. Some pretty good ones, lots of variably successful remakes of known maps and also a number of notorious duds, among which map 11 sticks out like a sore thumb. I have huge respect for Darkwave0000 because of his brilliant work on SoD and some other favorites of mine, and cannot grasp how he could release such a huge monotonous snoozefest devoid of any action whatsoever (except for a bunch of pop-up archviles in open spaces. Barf...) 3/5

Fantastically hard mapset that is very true to the original material while implementing some more modern design philosophies -- Basically Plutonia if it were actually good. (I only half kid) 5/5

I'll concede that I'm slightly invested in this .WAD, as I made the whole of one map. So I'll ignore that and say I loved playing through the other 32 maps. Very fun and a great Plutonia megawad with quite a few great maps! 5* -Phobus

Excellent work from the community. Mostly very consistent, and the weaker maps still delivers plutonic nostalgia and fun gameplay. Well done! 5 Stars.

Lots of nice maps in this set and a couple are really outstanding. If you liked the Plutonia experiment I recommend you give this a try. dwrTag

Very good megawad. At least as good as Plutonia 2. BTW Portal 2 was also released the same day - much better than Mortal Kombat.

Very nice wad, but neither it nor Portal 2 can live up to the glory that is Mortal Kombat. Still, 5/5.

It's an awesome Doom wad, but it shouldn't be compared to other games. 5/5. And remember, Mortal Combat isn't even available for PC.
