Some good stuff, but it became impossible to advance without cheating. Music was so-so. 3 outta 5.

cracking map set based on the moon, good mix of outdoor and indoor "tech-style levels" The music ranges from good to cheesy (haha yep map05) The difficulty is hard but pretty standard for modern wads. The last map is exceptionally good with a great concept. Probably a 4.5 star wad but hey I'll round it up to five. - cannonball

Awesome, a perfect example on how a good classic Boom wad should be. The new enemy was an excellent touch.

I don't know, its something deadly wrong about this wad. Looks cool, plays OK (if a bit boring), but leaves no trace in soul. I'd say its the case of being "too excellent". 3*

Really awesome map set. No surprise as it's skillsaw here! I loved the lunar theme and the visuals of each map were executed in a very professional way. The gameplay was definite tough, but I was able to clear each map on UV with after a few tries (thought I beat MAP05 of my first try!). Without a doubt a must-see and must-play map set! -Mek

Fantastic little level pack. The Tyrian music made me well up with nostalgia.

Great mapset with an absolutely epic slaughterhouse at the end! Difficulty is fair.

An absolute masterpiece! Brilliantly themed and designed, fun music, action that quickly gets out of hand, and one of the most insane and rewarding endings I've ever experienced from a map set. Save often. 5/5

Haha... well realised Doom2 sci-fi-ish conversion. The new enemies are ace.

The first four maps are very good, but the last is an awful, dismal, TERRIBLE level. Who thought a monster flood of that magnitude would be a good idea?

No doubt, the outdoor area has a great environment. That's what sold me on this wad. But, unfortunately, the maps quickly devolve from a fun, "watch your step" type setup and into relentless, brutal, and tedious traps. And, to boot, there are Nazis (looks like it to me) on the Moon (wtf? this is Doom, not Wolfenstein 3D). 1/5 for a good outdoor environment. And this promising wad is going in my Recycle Bin—what a shame.

Awesome wad. Music is cool, but couple tracks don't really match the game. Difficulty gets really high really fast. I still haven't beat the last level, I like playing on UltraViolent and I would rather not have to choose HurtMePlenty. Probably impossible on NightMare. *****

The maps look good, but the gameplay, and music (except for MAP02, which was great) ruined the game. It's obvious that he was more interested in detailing the ceilings of his maps instead of making maps that are fun to fight in, since there are a lot of flat areas in his maps, even in intense combat situations where height variation is needed most. MAP02 had some interesting *horizontal* places you could dodge into to avoid fire in the building, but it wasn't enough to save this map pack. 3/5

      I love SkillSaw's work and this is a magnificent wad, but I am writing this review to mark it for folks like me, who would love the level design, but wouldn't connect with the gameplay. Which is fine, no wad is made for every player.   What didn't work for me in this megawad - as far as I checked it out, playing several levels from different packs - was gameplay geared towards maneuverability and making it without strong weapons and much ammo.   To me Doom is a shooter. When faced with a lot of strong enemies, I would like to be able to get them down with a double shotgun or a rocket launcher. These levels are more about running around quickly with a gun, a berserk pack and a shotgun with only a few shells. In he middle of the level you typically get a chaingun.   And that just turns the game into a platformer for me, which is fine, just not my kind of gameplay.   The design and music are top notch. Even the menu is eye candy. I wanted to adore this project, but I just cannot connect with it.   I will, however, keep it on my hard drive and return to it from time to time. Will update this review if I ever get it.

      A small and frantic map for deathmatch that unluckily doesn't got me too much into it. Single player placement is a joke. The only interesting thing i can think are: Why a Batman Forever map, over the fact that shares the music with a Dwango compilation (maybe Dwango 5) by U2, used as well in other doom maps of the time? That's the only piece of correlations between these two franchises i can think of, actually. The second thing that i was thinking is: you known that exist another deathmatch map based upon batman years before the more well known Batman total conversion by ACE Team? Isn't this crazy?
