Really impressive (and sadly overlooked) hub. Nice visuals/atmosphere, and great gameplay with some really neat ideas. Also, it never gets confusing and boring like so many other hub-style wads, I always knew where I need to go and exploration was fun from start to finish. Another plus for author being Revelation Space fan.;)

Very interesting doom3 atmosphere. Beauty hub design but a bit confusing. Gameplay is acceptable but not hard or well-balanced. Some bugs in doors. Final boss is not challenging. Still, interesting work 4/5

Great use of Doom2 stock textures and light varience breathing life back into abundantly overused IWAD materials. Graphical bugs aside (which is really the fault of the port) this a fun and atmospheric gl wad everyone must experience! 5/5 FoH

Awful. Cloned rooms, bad enemy's, stupid doors, doors that opened elsewhere, boring gameplay, less of colours, inconvenient weapons, final boss, no story, uninteresting music. Need more arguments? I can write for a long time.

First-class hub. Classy use of GZDoom effects, pretty and coherent visuals, excellent gameplay. Not in any way hard, but I never considered that as a bad thing.

This was really good, I'm honestly suprised it has so few ratings. Kind of Quake 2 style hub, luckily visuals are nothing like Q2.:) Pretty good looking stuff, tasteful use of 3D and reflective floors, very polished. I really wish more hub-style wads went for this kind of helpful objective screens and map markers, no pointless Hexen-esque backtracking here.

      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.
