About This File

This wad represents the reconsideration of Hellfire's ideas, so basically it is a new realization of an old story. Though the original Hellfire's main idea has remained as it was, all levels have been made from scratch, and some of them have undergone to the essential updating - both geometry, and the monster-ammo-medkits' balance. I've tried to correct original Hellfire's lackings and to finish all the ideas I've put in Hellfire to logical end. Have a great game!

The original hellfire was , to me, an absolute 5/5, spending many difficult but enjoyable hrs @ the helm, but after running through this new entry, kind of disappointed as it seems to closely related to the original. But those not fortunate enough to play the first.. yeah, play this by all means!

Excellent map set. A bit confusing sometimes but that's only a problem the first time round. I was a bit disappointed with the final fight perhaps less dense corn or areas that provide cover also showing where to go on the automap would have been good. Still great job. 5/5

Looks good but it's too repetetive to enjoy it all way around. A bit too hard to play aswell cause there's not sufficient ammo. 3/5.

These levels rock. It has a great theme, a nice story and the gameplay rewards a judicious use of ammo and strategy. Sure, the corn maize blows, but a little speedbump like that doesn't ruin the level. The prison more than makes up for that anyway. The energy and effort put into this WAD shows, and it blows most new WADs out of the water.

Has its ups and downs. I really like Map 5 (The Prison), but the city levels were tedious; Map 7 in particular often had me wondering just what the bleep I was supposed to do or where I was supposed to go. (That map also featured a huge corn maze, which is every bit as exciting as it sounds.) The levels look good at least (as long as you like gray and brown), but all in all, it's a mixed bag. 3/5 - ZZ

Very good overall, but a bit specific in some terms. Gameplay is very tight and forcing player to play carefully and count every bullet and constantly look for deadly traps, and sometimes offer just awful ideas to player (the maze at map07, for example, surely isn't what I can praise). Design is very clever in texture selection, so it's look beautiful overall, but geometrically there's too many similiar square'ish rooms that is just sacrifice to concept of the city. Still worth ****.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.

      If it were renamed "Garbage Dump," I would have given it a better rating.

      A large, but not very prolong map, which is interesting to explore. I liked the author's strategy to place strong weapons in well-protected places. To get them the player need to pass a kind of test. The difficulty depends on the player's luck. It is important not to miss the shotgun at the very beginning, otherwise entangled corridors can lead the player to a situation in which he will be easy prey, left without ammo. Visually, the map looks neat, another good example of using standard textures.
