About This File

A huge map for doom 2 which takes placed in a city. I think It's the nicest map i've done until now. If you enjoyed with Colossus, you'll love this one, but i have to advice you that it's REALLY HARD, so be carefull and don't play without freelook, or you will die every 10 seconds XD. Hope you like it )

Looks awesome, one of the best looking city maps using stock textures. It's fun to play and the monsters appearing behind all the time keep you on your toes. Ammo placement is a bit off though, and there is a bit too much room to run round in once you leave the start area. (although this doesn't affect the final area due to it's layout)

Looks pretty, but the layout and gameplay are both atrocious. Boring as hell.

Again, nice designed level but screwed up with bad gameplay and something else...Glad see Wraith actually can made good level like this... I guess he needed try playing his map like a casual DooM player because it's so hard like designed for DooM-god or some uber players like that...yeah, I beat it but...feel like it's "High Frustration"! 3.5/5 -playerlin

This is dated July 2011; it's Map13, and it's huge. One of those manly, meaty levels where you face 500+ baddies. The squared-off techbase style is, as review #1 points out, reminiscent of Michael Krause (of id=9312 fame), but much larger. Staggering to look at. Crucially, not a huge amount of fun to play - the monsters generally kill each other, so you just run around a lot. In fact, you can run through most of the level. You have to see it, though.

Looks nice. Plays poorly. Balance is horrible.

This is a very good map. Huge cityscape, very well-rendered and visually appealing; the monsters high up on various structures throughout can be annoying, though. Could've benefitted from secrets (there's only one, and it has a switch right out in the open); other than that, quite nice. 4/5 - ZZ

Most of your wads need more work, specially with difficult seetings. But this one is quite funny and visually one of the bests maps i've played ever.

well, the most decent map of wraith, the design is great and the difficulty is not so hard than in your other maps like colossus, the dark lands or your heretic maps 4/5 and before the others say that this map is shit, first play it

Fucking dumbnuts playing on UV and yelling "OMG,IT'S SO UNBALANCED!!!!" If a map is advertised as hard,and you can't play well,pick a goddamn lower difficulty setting. Oh,and it wasn't too hard even on UV. The balance is all right and you DO have where to hide, as most of the corridors have walls you can duck behind. So anyway, I felt really good playing this map, it had nice flow, great architecture, a nice oldschool feel and nice difficulty and monster placement. So overall, 5/5, really impressive!

The design and looks of this map are pretty good. The overscaled architecture reminded me of Michael Krause maps. The gameplay wasn't all that exciting. Because there is a lot of room to maneuver, it isn't that hard to run past the hordes of monsters to flick a switch. Using lots of arachnotrons and spider masterminds brought some challenge but not enough.

Hard, frustrating sometimes, but good overall. Don't understand that low score -- 4/5 Eye

Well previous Wraith maps had fairly nice looks but awful play. This has excellent looks but poor play. A clear step up, but clearly the play needs many more.

It's OK. Lot's of detail and somewhat unique, but not a huge ammount of fun.

This is actually pretty good! At least it's washing away the bad taste of the Terry wads. 4/5

      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.
