Hard as fuck, if you're playing on UV be prepared to memorize everything.

Pros: 32 levels - 4/5. Cons: quite often very rectangular, very little architecture variation, often very crampy. Imho gameplay (UV) does not really benefit from an overdosis pain elementals & arch-viles, way too many monster popups, and too much darkness. This is not my idea of gameplay, so 2/5. Overall: 3/5 for the efford, thanks for making this megawad anyway.

A good megawad which I quite enjoyed, some of the traps were a bit harsh and even though I played on HMP it was still a rough ride. Could have been improved a lot by the simple addition of secrets and music, also small things like changing the level names on the end level screens and adding a titlepic. Still I would recommend a playthrough to anyone who has some time to kill - 3/5

I tried a random map and map20 has missing textures under gzdoom and zdoom. Looks ordinary.

Violent. Brutal. Fucking Hard. Playing on UV provides one of the hardest challenges in Wads everywhere. Map design is decent but could of been better. 4/5

5/5 for NOT including a half-assed titlepic replacement like so many other WADs.

^The lack of a titlepic is a really stupid reason to give a wad such a low rating. I haven't played the whole megawad, but from the few maps I played it seems pretty decent. 3/5

In terms of gameplay (UV) it's got rather poor ammo and health balance and some quite frustrating moments. But I could stand it if there was something worth looking at, but it's nothing special. Squarish and corridor-oriented design with constantly repeating ambushes, absence of nice and memorable visuals and overall lack of creativity and innovation. Is that the way modern zdoom-oriented megawad supposed to be? 2/5 - Demonologist

One of the best megawads I've ever played. Great balance (ammo/mobs), hard (in clever way imo - ambushes, archviles, small locations) as fuck - and fine :) Very atmosferic and as someone said - it force you to remembering every part, to stay alive on UV. Claustrophobia 1024 1/2, Contagion, and this one are my #1. Ofc I really like Scythe, DV, AV and HR.

      This right here is one of the oldest joke wads ever made, and its parodies of bad map design are still relevant to this day.

      Ok not going to lie, but I thought this shitpost megawad was made last year and NOT from February of 1998 which also technically predates the original Mockery wad by a few months 👀!?

      The first truly mature map of yakfak's. The puzzly, "inner logic" map mechanisms and scavenger, dungeon rat gameplay of their previous levels Meep Keep & Hexasketch returns, but whereas those can feel clunky and barebone at points despite the strong authorial voice, here it is fully fleshed out: the setting is evocative, the construction shows the strong command of shapes that defines yakfak's later works, the item placement and layout bends and loops in complicated and surprising ways, the level's moment-to-moment gameplay is filled with a sense of discovery and wonder.   Job has a strong hook in its text file, but what players might not realize is that they must really hang on to every word in its description to even be aware of the level's main concept. In Never_Again's in-depth review for /newsuff (which I highly recommend for details or if you are feeling stuck), he mentions being locked out if you took the "easy" route out, but I feel that's incomplete, as the real reason hinges on the player being conscious of what they are doing in a representationalist sense. In other words, to be able to reach your dream, you shouldn't just interact and go everywhere at random, but try to think about what you are doing in the context of the game's world. The solution will be clear if you square it with what yakfak hints at. There are complications: the in-game hint system of crosses and arrows are counter-intuitive, and exploration will eventually lead you to the combat zone, which itself is a puzzle unravel as supplies require routing and withholding combat through treacherous enemy placement, with only a berserked fist as defense (HMP or below is strongly recommended). In my own experience, it was fun but exhausting to make it through to the AV-guarded yellow key and slowly solve the piece, but I got massively demoralized when I read Never_Again's review that I had already locked myself out of the second half of the map. It was only when I was showcasing the Doomcute in this map to someone else that the level's inner logic finally clicked, and after some experimentation, which was much smoother thanks to me already being aware of the level's layout and lingering mysteries, I managed to solve it.   The feeling of "lore" behind the level's trials and tribulations is my favorite thing about Job, and I wish it didn't take a review for me to "get it". In terms of intriguing combat, intricate moments, or imaginative layout and visuals, I think zzzv tops themself in (woefully underrated) levels like Spidersilk, Nato, and Northern Powerhouse. Nevertheless, an essential stop for yakfak fans, and a memorable journey for those who look for Doom off the beaten path.
