REQUIRES GZDOOM!

A 5 map hub centered around a UAC xenobiological research facility on Epsilon Eridani III.

Break all breakable windows in the game 8. Play the game without a backpack 9. Speedrun the game in under 15m45s 10. Complete hard mode by staying above 66 health 11. Complete the game in hard mode in under 40mins

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.

      Yeah, this is what Doom is supposed to be. Basic and enjoyable, no gimmicks or stupid sound/graphic mods. Just pure Doom. This is a keeper.

      Another day, another stolen map.   E2M1 of IMMLEV is a ripoff of ARENA, a tutorial WAD David Bruni designed and wrote detailed tutorials for in the 3D Alchemy book. Walbert's edit of it was so incompetent that four times out of five it will crash vanilla seconds into the level with a "P_CrossSubsector" error. Crispy and prboom-plus crash every time.   Oddly enough, Choco loads the map without complaints but you get stuck early on due to the "author" apparently using a paper bag over the head as a map-editing tool.   The second map is largely a barebones crate maze. A secret door next to the first key leads to an unmarked exit that dumps you on the stock secret level. Too bad, as the third level finally shows a glimpse of promise, albeit somewhat marred by HOM and mislabeled key doors. This, too, is apt to an abrupt end with another unmarked exit switch.

      The difficult of some maps (mainly after MAP 20) is rather extreme in UV if you aren't an experienced/very good player. For others I recommend playing in HMP or even HTNR if you don't want many frustating moments. Best maps = 04, 06, 07, 08, 11, 15, 32, 18, 20, 22, 28, 29 and 30. Bad Maps = 05, 31, 23, 25 and 26. All other maps are OK. Now, some considerations: MAP 24 is very good until the archvile spam, after that it's almost impossible to beat if you don't get the secret invulnerability sphere. MAP 26 is a gimmick map with a lot of archviles, I didn't enjoy the gameplay because if you shoot in some parts you die right away due to the sheer numbers of viles. MAP 29 at first seem very hard and frustating but its doable if played with persistance. The only bad thing about it is the mandatory archvile jump which I didn't aprove (if you play it you'll see what I'm talking about). UV maxing this MAP would be a nightmare since the red key area is very hard; I've yet to see anyone at youtube or twitch UV maxing this map without saves. As I think only 5 MAPS out of 32 are bad it deserves at least 4 stars.

      Great. Best Wad ever.

      It misses that "something extra" that id maps had. Something that you remember those maps for. But maybe it's not fair to compare because the original always has the advantage of nostalgia.
