About This File

This was originally suppose to be a slaughter map for DoomHero85's slaughter WAD project, but then I decided to release it as a standalone map since it was too different from the rest of the maps in his project.

It's still a slaughter map though.

It was inspired by the "Slough of Despair" from the original Doom.

Pretty meh and dull with not so interesting surprises and level design. For a supposed slaughtermap, it's pretty easy not because you have plenty of ammo, but because there are no encounters where the swarms of enemies do anything to stress you out. You don't feel overwhelmed since a bit of strafing (or a bit cover, yay) eliminates any challenge there is, and you won't see any enemies like Arch-Viles or Cyberdemons at all. Oh you do have one Spider Mastermind but you can kill her no problem.

 

The map looks ugly even with the "Slough of Despair" influence because even then, that map has more going for it in gameplay and atmosphere than this pile of rocks and gray. I'd rather pass on this one.

This map is very easy considering it is a slaughter map. I beat it on my first try. Not very good design, but decent gameplay and I would recommend it if you are bored. 3/5

It's a bit of a good slaughter map with a little E3M2 design. I liked it. 4/5 - Optimus

Just what it says on the tin: slaughter. Not the best slaughter map, not the prettiest slaughter map, but certainly solid, although it would've been more fun with more rockets and/or a BFG. 3/5 - ZZ

This map is the melee essence. The concept is simple, and the map design too. But the result is funny. 4/5

A slaughter map that falls strictly into the "average" category. The gameplay can be amusing as it's remarkably easy (considering the amount of enemies and lack of armor), but it's also extremely flat. I guess it takes that from its "Slough of Despair" influence. It's fairly ugly and bland, but I wouldn't call it downright disastrous... 2.5/5 - Snakes.

      Pretty decent WAD by UltimateLorenzo. Overall I really dig the use of custom monsters and the addition of the Plasma Shotgun and Nailgun - they fit in quite nicely.   As for the maps themselves, I love the detailing put in each level. A lot of hard work has been put in to make these levels pop. The first five maps were excellent, the next three were tedious in that you pretty much have to shotgun everything pretty much (if done on Pistol-Start), and the final five was also quiet good, taking on a more 'Quake' style in appearance.   What's the deal with MAP13 though? No weapons to take on 250+ monsters? Obviously not meant to be Pistol Started. Good if this was made into a full-fledged megawad, but this is still certainly worthy of a playthrough.

      Not recommend, this map is made of 2 rectangular mazes and few bigger rooms. Mazes are confusing even with automap. Only one area is intresting, but overall meh. Progression is also confusing. I didn't make through this without help of map editor. 1.5/5*

      Note: I had to reupload to fix a minor but immersion breaking bug in MAP25. Make sure to redownload the WAD!   Also every map in this is great, this was prob the first project I have worked on\tested where I would describe the experience as heartwarming. Some people may disagree about some of the more difficult maps I guess, but even if they are too hard for you there's something in this WAD you're bound to enjoy.   [obligatory my map sucks comment to close the review]

      I personally liked this over part 1 of 10 Sectors, which I previously reviewed. There isn't the technical mishaps found in the first installment so that immediately makes me happy. There are a few levels which have wonky progression but they aren't nearly as bad as what was found in the first installment either. This one feels a lot more polished than the last entry and as such I'd recommend it over part 1.
