Looks like a '95/'96 WAD, maybe a sequel to 99ways by Warren Marshall? So prepare yourself for a maximum old school experience. I found the map super cool, with all the staircase climbing. Monsters are low-tier, a revenant at the exit is "boss".

This is worse than the very first level I ever created & that was on DCK back in like 1996 or something. I love old school levels but they need something more than this. 2/13/12

I'd say 3/5 because of some horrible texture missalignment and confusing level, otherwise good retro stuff 3/5 - Optimus

Beautiful design, but a bit confusing and too easy. 3/5

I was pleasantly surprised with this one. Bland visuals aside, the map plays a lot like an adventure game. The easy monster encounters prevent prolonged breaks in movement keep the pace right on going. Its a fun map if your into exploration and switch hunting. 4/5 -FoH

Not truly bad, but an extreme example of a switchhunt level. Texture misalignments galore. Megasphere secret is not actually marked secret. Found lots of rockets, but no rocket launcher. Author has potential, but this isn't a good level yet. 1.5/5 - ZZ

Who's into exploration and switch hunting? Not me. I hate flicking a switch and wondering where in the hell some door just opened. The enemies are weak, the place is solid brick and I've had more fun stubbing my toe.

Nice style, but the layout is both linear and confusing (vertical maze without many landmarks), which makes for a bad combination when you toss in the switch-hunting.

Very nice map in all respects. Warmly recommended. Kind of reminded me of some iwad maps in a few respects (lv26 and pl04, and maybe some E4, though with more of a sandstone texture theme), but without being a "homage" map. Progression is well organized, with some clever revisiting and repopulation of areas. For me, the map flowed nicely, without slow spots or anything that felt like a switch hunt. It also felt non-linear, though I'd have to replay it a few more times to say for sure if that is the case.

Yeah, maze is bad even the layout/design is OK, and in this case they're all bad too...made me feel so confusing when get a key/push a switch but well it doesn't that bad, gameplay just OK, due the confusing layout...I found 22 rockets but I can't find a way to use them... WHAT THE HELL?! 2.5/5 -playerlin

You'll get better in due time. This wad is okay, but a far cry from the other good wads on here. 3/5

      It took me several tries to unwrap the map but I really enjoyed it. J Flynn still amazes me. A tricky great map.

      This map is beautiful to look at and amazing to play. It reminds me of a something I'd see from a map in the late 90s and I love it.

      I'm breaking up with Valiant to start my new love with Hellbound. Best DOOM mapset that has been made. I have replayed it more than once with Brutal DOOM Platinum and Final Doomer(Hellboundguy class) and I still can't get tired of it. Cities, hellish maps, tech bases, I just love it. I also really like the combination of E2M1, E2M2 and E2M3 in Map19. Amazing stuff right there, I strongly recommend this

      I forgot to review it when I first finished it, but I played it again with final doomer so I think it's time.   Ancient aliens is beautiful, and it plays as well as it looks.  SkillSaw gives some of his best maps in his career, only matched by his heartland performance.  But the heavy lifting is really done by the presentation, stewboys midis always fit, and the fact the soundtrack is bespoke is incredible.  I personally enjoy all of the maps, only the secret maps have any issues fitting in, and secret maps are allowed to not be great.  My only issue with the wad are the inconsistent 3rd episode, and ironically it's skillsaw's work in that episode that is probably the worst (So good, but not as good as the earlier work in the wad) as the rest of the team turns in great work.

      Valiant was hyped up in my mind as a future favorite megawad, Often proclaimed as the best megawad by many.   But it is imperfect. 1. The Super chaingun is lame, not a fan, it want's to be the ultimate weapon, but it is never set up to be powerful, most enemies are too tough too be taken down by it without justifying use of a better weapon, and moments where cannonfodder are plentiful enough to justify it are too rare.  Most importantly chaingun sniping is limited, I almost wish for a regular chaingun because its ability to pick off enemies from a distance was that valuable for me.  The pistol isn't a good replacement for it, so a gap is left to pursue an overlap in the arsenal.  The custom enemies are fun all of them are great.    2. The maps are divided into episodes Ep1 - Earth tech base that is fun Ep2 - Waste episode that is ok I think for 2 or 3 maps but starts to suck later Ep3 - The Darkwave episode Ep4 - Hell that is hell to play Ep5 - Lunatic reloaded (I liked lunatic so it's fun)   The aggressive red and orange maps just unfortunately suck sometimes.  The maps aren't bad but annoying and it feels like they suck out the fun.  The other 3 episodes are fun most of the time but are imperfect.  I love custom monsters and weapons so I had that to look forward too every map, but the wad just isn't fun sometimes.   3.  Maps are detailed, but I personally enjoy vanilla maps so it doesn't appeal to me in that regard.  But In theory you wouldn't notice it because of the speed of play, the best valiant maps would be hard to recreate from memory because they would force the player to go fast.  But that also clashes with Skillsaws love of map 24 the Chasm, I wanted to idclip so many times because I fell off a thin ledge or didn't do the platforming section as well, I didn't but the restraint required was immeasurable.   4.  The aracnorb, cool in theory but combined with high ceilings made me want to hang myself, thankfully Skillsaw made the ceiling so high I can't hang myself from it because there isn't a ladder long enough.   5. I don't have a 5th point but I like the number 5 so I felt disgusting not having a 5th point.   To conclude, Valiant is fine and most of the enemies are cool but it has issues, play at your own risk.
