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.

      I have a real blast while playing this megawad. Think that Quake is not brown enough? You will get the ultimate browness here. I think that, beside the simplistic ugliness of it, it gives a good cohesive look to all the maps. And this one are really big and fun to explore. The ideas of cities, fortresses, islands, canyons and caves, and finaly tech base on moon, are really neat and some looks really good. The story of the wad is pretty good, too. I love the liberties that the author takes while doing this mapset. As i played a lot and i found this kind of ideas in a few wads along the way.
      What i didn't like it much, is that there wasn't other skies than the episode one sky from Doom 2. Again, i think it is that way for a cohesive storytelling, but anyway, it would be cool to feel the sense of time in the maps with different skies and shadows deploying in differents ways along the maps.

      This could be the Eternal Doom of doom stock textures, but the linearity of the maps, aside from the somewhat empty but interesting areas to explore, departs slighty from the formula, and there are not soo much details as one might expect from a mapset like this. Don't get fooled by that, even with the somewhat Heretic-like linearity, the maps are fun, gorgeous in its brownway and pretty challenging.
        I recommend this megawad to anyone that likes to explore and have a challenge in the vein of the best of team TNT mapsets.

      I liked it better than Claptrapino. Maybe because I'm a novice level maker too. Obviously it's the work of a newbie, but I absolutely understand how it might have taken 10+ hours. I think I've spent at least that long and haven't even completed any levels yet.   I actually thought it was an interesting basic concept to start in the middle of a maze, with areas you've previously cleared not guaranteed to be safe anymore with the portals and spawns. I died twice in my attempts and finished the third time. When I realized that staying in place, conserving resources and clearing wasn't working I took the invulnerability and just ran through the halls spraying high damage weapons.   The level did seem unfinished though. What are the keys for? Are there secrets in the level that contain locked doors?

      Yes, this is a legendary megawad. Yes, there is a lot of positives to say about it.
      But I can't ignore the button madness present in many levels. In the second half of the games this gets utterly insane - you WILL spend most of the time bashing and shooting every inch of every wall to find yet another hidden switch to be able to progress. Many switches open hidden doors in an unrelated location on the other side of the level without even telling you. Some levels have switches completely invisible and one of them even hides switches in random decoration sprites like trees. I'm sorry but this was no fun and in the end it ruined the entire megawad for me.

      Now this wad is sorta conflicting, for one if you suffer from any of the following problems: lack of ammo,regenerating health,the maps,multiple deaths. You can't play doom for shit but the i also have issues with this wad.   1. The doom 3 type design disgusts me, mainly because i don't like doom 3 that much   2. I hate the painkiller esque moments   3. It's unfinished and dead   That's all.   RATING:3/10

      Pretty awful: uninspired, square layouts; boring, repetitive hordes; bad map design which leads to accidental telefragging by monsters; questionable sound design. Half of the time in a map is spent trying to figure out where to go in the map because the automap does not work and there is little sensible layout of the maps (plus some access points are hidden and difficult to discern). Earns 1 star just because of decent graphics, but that's about all that's decent in this wad.
