I actually really liked this wad.  The atmosphere was great and so was the texturing.  I think the maps had just the right amount of detail too.  The new monsters were refreshing and the new look on existing ones and the new missile effects were pulled off really well and made this wad even better imo.  I didn't try this on zdoom but on gzdoom it felt like just the right kind of darkness and the texturing helps make it look darker.

Very stylish, atmospheric, creative and fresh levels, I've never seen something like this before. But they're also rather buggy (with HUD covering part of the automap, some monsters stuck, music not playing properly and health regeneraction not working correctly). So it requires further testing and tweaking and not a revelation of century in terms of gameplay but as of now it's worth looking at. 4/5 - Demonologist

The Hell of Void. I mean ultimate emptiness of this wad will bore you to tears and that's what I call the real Hell.

Wow, what the hell, I love this atmospheric and feels but too dark and I can't see some shit...battles are good but overpowered mini-bosses/final boss just let me hate the author...and the regain health just too slow and I rather just use "resurrect" or I just feel boring as dead. :p Well, this is really hard but I have fun, that's what's matter! 4/5

On Zdoom, it's too dark and I can't really run GZdoom yet.

Brutally hard - too hard in places - but very atmospheric and compelling anyway. If the health regen was just a little faster, I don't think I would have had anywhere near as much trouble.

No health, and for some reason, I wasn't healing. Got boring have to dodge countless monsters without health, but overall, I liked it.

Very dark and atmospheric, so dark in fact, I almost gave up on it. The teleporting caco was borderline disturbing and made me nearly throw my cordless mouse across the room! And the dark cloud monster - fuck me :-O Loved it! Can't wait for more :-) 5/5

A foreboding ambiance and unique sound track alone make this a must play wad despite its many game play flaws. Projectiles are often times hard to dodge. Its difficult to tell when your taking damage. Ammo and weapon balance is just bad across the whole mapset. I barely got a glimpse of some of the unique enemies before I massacred them like nothing. Map 02's music gets stuck on one note forever. Monster encounters arn't anything special. Still, it's pretty! 3/5 -FoH

Attractive to look at, but dull and boring to play.

      What a set of maps. At first I only expected random maps that use use Mario textures, but this is so much more. From the cutesy bullet puffs of the weapons, to the plasmagun sprites, there have been more changes than "just" textures. All together they form a very, very coherent picture which makes you almost disappointed, that there are no Mario enemies in the game.   Even then, the actual quality of the maps surprised me quite a bit as well. Very, very fun to play from the beginning to the end, with admittedly frustrating parts (the map featuring only Archies and Revenants or the map featuring ice and wind. Oh god, the ice...). These are not just simple techbases given a Mario texture paint, these maps are well thought out and tailored to the textures, ranging from grass lands, over desert to impressive castle scapes and even an air ship. I played on TYTD not only because I am a wimp, but also because those maps are really, really hard and have some frustrating moments. It speaks for this mapset's quality, though, that you can live with those moments and still enjoy the maps.   Try it out at least.

      I really dig it! Its feel like a Ultimate Doom take of TNT, but its not at that level either.
      Its a great adventure mapset, leaning more to the  atmospheric and realistic architecture.
      First and second episodes are amazing. Introducing the new enemies as the maps unfold. But midway around episode three it start to lose steam, with a serie of really short maps and then maps really similar to the originals, this is not bad at all, just feels a little uninspireds. Fourth episode on the other hand, feels extremely rushed, with a lot of monotexturing and undetailed areas. Its not bad, but coming as the ending episode it could be much better, specially with the degree of detailing the author showed on the precious episodes.

      All the episodes offers a good challenge, even on Hurt Me Plenty, but don't expect anything near the difficulty of NEIS.   All in all, being one of the few complete Ultimate Doom megawads, its pretty good and i liked the new enemies sprites and the music used, almost all the time.

      No, this is not good by any stretch. First 25 levels feel like they are all the same - colorless, flat, dull and bland. Next 3 look like deathmatch arenas with a handful of monsters. Again, all pretty much the same. The last two are pitch black mazes - oh what fun. As for the secret levels - I abandoned both. Map31 is a maze alternating between pitch darkness and flashing primary colours and map 32 is simply an incomprehensible mess. Possibly acceptable if you just want to kill some time with mindless point and shoot, but not what I would call an enjoyable Doom experience. At least it avoids degenerating into slaughter.

      Pros: Straightforward, lot of action, no button madness. Plays smooth. Classic Doom feeling.
      Cons: Lots of invisible lines blocking monsters. Lots of hitscanners and not enough health packs.

      An enjoyable set of maps of easy difficulty (MAP 07 is medium) in UV with simple design that worked well for me. Finished the whole set in 02:40 min. Certainly worth a shot!
