^Yes, this wad was VERY underreceived in /newstuff, easily to the level of things like Doom 2 Reloaded or Needs more Detail.

Great old school fun with a few cool changes! Gameplay is quick and non stop, with nice ammo and health layout. Good secret placement too. It's a shame the last map is bugged on zdoom ports (doesn't end correctly) but that doesn't take away from the experience. 4/5 from me. -TRRobin

I don't think map 09 ends correctly on any port. Even on ports that display the dehacked LS correctly, it cannot be killed even in Eternity or glboom+.

Not bad. Very classic design that however gets somewhat weaker in the later levels; looks and feels quite like DOOM1, with a few exceptions (SSG, mancubi). Map6 has stairs you can only walk up, not down. Boss in Map9 is broken in GZDoom and doesn't die properly. Not bad overall. 3/5 - ZZ

I have mixed feelings about this wad. The design is great, and the starts of maps (from pistol starts) are fun, as it's often a case of running around like mad to grab some weapons while evading the bad guys. But then the play settles down into a routine and even boring affairm with the monsters posing little threat. And the "bosses" are uninspiring and out of keeping with the rest of the wad. But overall, this wad is definitely well worth playing. I'll give it 4/5.

Really a nice old classic maps with non-linear style. Yeah, it's not looking good but plays fun. My only problem is Map09 cannot completed... 4/5 -playerlin

Fantastic gameplay experience. I loved the alterations to the monsters and the nice open layouts in the maps. Really got me checking the corners after a while. I did have it in ZDoom 2.5.0 where the final boss died, but then ended up as a ghost and the map refused to end. No idea what happened there, but I'm guessing its a bug. Still, that was the very end, and didn't matter too much. More like this would be great! 5* -Phobus

      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.
