The mapset is a load of fun, save for Map31. It took a friend of I three hours to complete the level together - and that was consulting Doom Builder. Outside of Map31, the rest of the maps were a load of fun and would encourage others to play it.

Fun and relaxing.  I liked how longer, adventure levels were seperated by shorter ones.  It was refreshing.

Done with these settings:

 

- Crispy Doom 3.5

- Hurt Me Plenty, Ultra-Violence.

- Continuous for myself, and pistol starts for the DW Megawad Club.

- Saves every 10 minutes or so. 

 

This is a good old school-ish megawad with plenty of fun scenarios. Very Memento Mori-ish as well as keeping it original. It's also notable one inspiration was TNT, as some levels are structured resembling the most memorable maps of the iwad. A lot of well developed switch-hunting and puzzles, I never felt lost to be honest. About visuals, they are ok, some neat rooms like in map 18, some arrows to mark where to go (which I find acceptable), very neat trick with doors at the end of map 17, I liked how map 30 was a mixture of Caribbean-Last Call-Viper style, map 22 has some nice Pharaoh textures well used. In general, visuals are not outstanding, but that's fine, although in terms of secrets, visuals practically don't help, it was really hard to spot a misaligned wall or a simple different detailed portion of a pillar, stuff like that. Map 31 comes to my mind, the way to get the keys felt obscure, not uninteresting but I had to resort to a video to look for the blue key... On the other side, cool midis!

 

Combat is ok, there are great encounters and easy ones. One of the most common things to see is gunners in straightforward corridors, something that became very predictable throughout the wad. Many cybers and queen spiders used really good. Not a fan of those ride a lift/take this teleport - two/three revenants right in your face, but these were uncommon.

 

My favourite maps so far are 01, 08, 16, 20, 22, 24, 28 and 29. The others are good too, specially map 30 in which I really appreciate the IoS fight not being stressful.

 

So yeah, recommendable wad for people seeking non-modern stuff. I'll give this 7.5/10

More successful at being memento mori than memento mori.

alright megawad. not sure how "old Doom feeling" equates to excessive hitscanner usage (unless main influences come from Final Doom) or some levels being confusing as fuck, but it's a fun play. music kicks fucking ass.

This is a good wad, but we've seen far batter lately in terms of megawads (jenesis, prcp etc).

Sorry, but there's no way you can make a good megawad in just 3 hours. It takes me more then 3 hours to make a SINGLE map. Anyway I guess the author was just screwing around, but still... 4/5

This is at least a solid 4/5, although I have the feeling that Interception is going to out-compete it for "truly" seeming like another mid-late 90s megawad. Still, that's by multiple authors and this (mapwise) only by one, so good work.

This is a superb megawad and I totally agree with all the "one of the best megawads ever" comments. The fact that it was done by just one man is amazing. Rock solid 5/5 but deserves more.

one of my favourite megawads. nothing too flashy, but it really gets to the essence of what makes doom great. it's really artfully made and excellently arranged and paced. fantastic gameplay and level design. The first half of the wad has some puzzles that can be kind of obtuse, but they're not really bad, just more complex than what i would expect from a doom level.

Pretty cool stuff, although the keyhunt in map10 can be infuriating if you aren't a patient person, and Map31 is something of an acquired taste(although very cool architecturally). I thought Doom core had a few better "concept levels" in it however.

      I guess this was meant to be a serious wad, just using a trick to make the C-Demon hard to see. I don't think it was a deliberate troll of the style that caught on later, eg Sand Chain and the Terry wads. IMHO it nowhere near holds the record for "worst wad ever" (even if it did once) so it is now "over-rated" in that respect. I was a bit disappointed, I was expecting worse LoL.

      Doomers these days have varying levels of patience. I know I have some of the worst when it comes to quickly finishing areas and moving on, which is why I prefer shorter levels most of the time. this particular map, a Maximum Doom map by the way, is one that completely tested my patience.   this is 8 levels long, from E1M1 to E1M8, and is sort of a proto-slaughtermap episode replacement. every map here has at least 200 monsters, and the layouts of each say that they are compact in size. so the action would be pretty good and fun right?   WRONG   while it's fun to kill all these enemies, this is honestly horribly balanced. on the first level, you only really get a shotgun and a chaingun, and it took me a while to get just one armor too. is that the worst part? I can actually enjoy the challenge of such a gameplay scenario so no. what's problematic about each and every level in this wad is that when you're not killing enemies, you're just sort of fucking around. in other words, you're switch hunting. but this is the worst kind due to lifts that have zero indications that they are lifts, as well as switches that have zero indication of what they did. not to mention some walls are triggers, when they really don't have any indication that they really do anything. oh yes, and mandatory secrets and backtracking. I would like the combat more if it gave more weapons too, not one plasma gun or BFG in sight, and all that backtracking just...fucking...headdesk. there's no reliable way to even speedrun this, to the point where I wonder if the author ever realized that other's would tire the fuck out over it. "these are the easy ones" this has all the hallmarks of a bad Maximum Doom map.   it's amazing how varied my Maximum Doom experience is so far. there are some really fun maps, mediocre but quick maps, and some long and nasty ones. I'm honestly trying to avoid reviewing any maps from there but i'll make an exception for this particular one since it's just unbelievably bad.

      Pointless crap.  A small yard, empty except for a futuristic shotgun. No monsters and no exit. See my screenshot and you've seen it all.

      Classic funny little skin, still used in servers to this day so I think it deserves some love.   I like that the voice clip says “WHERE ARE A MY PANTS?”

      More an exercise in 3-d artwork than a game. Just someone's bedroom with a HK in a tiny lobby outside the door, and a Caco in a tiny yard outside the window. A BFG and Invisibilty Sphere are also in the yard but you can't get out there. I think the name is a clue - maybe this was the start of a bigger level, then abandoned. He ought to have allowed it as a base for development.
