About This File

A 21st century DooM 2 episode that is big, innovative, good-looking, and of course, HARD! This wad features desert and mountain levels, and there are plenty of levels beside the sea. There are also city levels and hi-tech levels. But - every style is represented here, even if it is only 1 level! (except the Spirit-World style)

For those of you who like secrets, there are at least 3 in each level (except 25-27 and 29-32 where there are none). And you'll be pleased to know that the secret levels are VERY well hidden........

This episode combines the speed and fast-paced action that makes DooM so special with the realistic world-like adventure of newer games like Quake 2 and Half-Life.

Despite the browns and grays that are prominent in this megaWAD, I found it to be fun. I also found it to be quite the challenge. The first map gives you a taste of what to expect in terms of enemy encounters. The author makes good use of mid-tier enemies to apply pressure on the player. Monster count for most of the maps barely breaks the 150 mark but, as said before, the use of mostly mid-tier enemies puts pressure on the player. I also like how the megaWAD handles level progression. Most of the levels you go through consist of caves, cities, islands, and tech bases in space. In fact, there's only one real Hell-like level and even it's within the confines of the moon base you fight through in maps 21 - 30.

 

About the only gripes I have with this megaWAD are with regards to maps 32, 29, and 30. I know the text file and map 31 give warnings about map 32 but there really should be some kind of alternate exit in map 32 instead of trapping you in place if you don't pass one of the puzzles. I wasn't a fan of how close quarters the IoS fight was in map 29, especially since it can get cramped quickly with monster spawns. Finally, the randomization of what keys spawn during your escape in map 30 isn't fun either. 10 minutes seems like plenty of time but between navigating the vent system (again) without light goggles and dealing with mid-tier enemies, that 10 minutes can get eaten up really quick.

 

Overall, it's still a fun megaWAD. I'd recommend at least giving it a shot.

It was a nice enjoyable megawad, entertaining gameplay, played with msx project.

It was disappointing the last 2 levels, going through a maze of tiny vents in pitch black, cheated with the infrared powerup giver.

i just really love this wad unconditionally. the level-design isn't really the best out there, or the most prettiest, and the gameplay is kind of there, but i always keep getting drawn back to Fragport regardless. if you like Doom levels with a bit more of a focus on exploration and "realistic" level-design, like Hellbound and (a bit of) Doom 2 Reloaded, and you like the gameplay being a bit slower, then this wad's worth playing still. just bring a music pack with it.

I like how this wad can be used as a long, sprawling adventure type of a megawad. Too bad every map is browner than quake 1.

Great detail and creative style to the levels. You can't stop playing. Each level continues on from the last quite smoothly, instead of going from one random destination to the next. Nice atmosphere and cool sound effects as well. Overall, a wad worth playing. 4.5/5

Given the skyhigh ratings, I was very disappointed. Lots of work, but most of the layouts are too basic, decoration simple, and the texture use plain ugly. Most textures are unaligned. Gameplay @ UV is too simple, repetitive thus predictable, and often just awful, not the least due to the very weak monster placement. Overall it is repetitive like hell. Playing it gave a quite enthusiastic but too amateurish impression. 2* for the amount of work, and nofi, but I really have no idea why on earth this got 5*.

Purely amazing. Possibly the best that I have ever played, and better map designing than both actual dooms. I don't know what else to say about it, it's just so good. 25/5.

Terrible wad. Big, ugly, undetailed, broken levels. Unexcusable in 2001. Trash.

Stephen Clark gave us with this great megawad a perfect example of what means "gameplay". Yes, I agree for the lack of details, but, obviously, it was not in his mind, and he was right. Most of the time, you can't look around to admire, cause of monsters appearing very often where there was apparently none. It's extremely well done, and it should be considered as one of the best megawads ever made by a man alone!!! 5/5 -Jive

Despite the maps being somewhat bland, they manage to pull of a charming mood on their own. Some ideas are very creative and fun. Challenging overall, sometimes annoying, but definitely worth the d/l (just for map 32 alone I´d say), oh and map 28 is a bitch ! 5*

Ha ha.. It's a meagwad is it?! No wonder it's taking so long. Qulaity is not quite as good as 007, but still above average. My only gripe is the fab looking maze levels has time lock-outs! Very bad. This level looks amazing, but i can't be arsed to play it.

Excellent pacing and monster placement (except the hyperpolyarchvilism) . I had a better sense of place with everything in this wad than the vast majority of much more "detailed" (read: visually noisy) maps that seem so popular nowadays. Love how you start where you left off from the previous map. 5. --Vaecrius

This might be one of the worst megawads I've ever played. How it made it to 4 stars, I'll never understand.

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
