Jesus, this episode must be called "grim sense of boredom", because of humor i didn't find any, but i find a lot of boring! A LOT!

Well, i just find a very short moment when i was chuckling out to the situation happening in E1M8 finding myself in a spiral of long lowering floors room, but maybe i just became insane.

Over this short digression, this episode is BORING. I see that tries to be some sort of old school (is from 1994, dear anon reviewer, not 2012!) version of mock.wad or one of those parody of bad wads around the archive since doom modding scene day one. But instead of jumping the ugly garbage train that are these kinds of maps, is for the major part a pretty basic  series of large, boring, almost navigable STARTAN3 mazes with some nice ideas and few nice rooms spruced all around the episode and some really asshole ideas like 2 trap rooms in 2 different levels (E1M4 and E1M8) that are a just a little room with some type of useful stuff like health and ammo, once you enter in you are trapped from a one-way closing door without any way to escape from it expect cheating...

but over these few moments, is pretty boring stuff. I suppose to deserve a trophy just for finish this. Go play something else.

 

BEST: ....E1M6 is kinda nice

WORST: E1M8 is bullshit

You should really use doombuilder 2 or something similar which would help you in your mapping. There was lots of texture placement that made absolutely no sense. So you should really work on the realism factor a bit more. Maybe play the classic doom 2 and see how id did it. Also the room shapes did not make much sense and there was generally no height variation or texture variation throughout.

      So this is the kind of map that I got to like from just how it looks. The screenshots alone sold it for me and gave a good first impression. And the map has a lot going for it, it's one very large, rather non-linear level with a distinct setting and tone. The setting is great, actually, there was a lot of work put to make it feel like a real place (there are distinct building like a church, a supermarket, etc.) and it excels in this regard, and I also like the depressing tone it has.
      Unfortunately, after replaying it thoroughly (I didn't give it a proper go the first time I played it years ago, and just assumed it's great throughout), it didn't really live up to expectations. It's not bad, but it's not remarkable (except for the good things I said about it above), and it has shortcomings. My main gripe is that, despite exploring seemingly everything, eventually I reached a point where I didn't know where to go, and the computer area map didn't help either. After over 1.5 hours of playing I just gave up on it. The other complaint is music: it's too repetitive. This is bad considering you'll definitely be playing this map for at least an hour, and the music will become annoying. As for the difficulty, can't complain. It was rather easy on ITYTD, as it should be. Tho there's a rather difficult platforming segment, at least if you aren't good at it. One more thing: this map had FPS drops for me, even tho I played on Eternity, and it seems to be the problem with the map, not my computer.

      this is a big ol' exploration map heavily inspired by e2m2, the doom 1 map of the same name. this map takes the concept of the crate maze and not only runs with it but improves heavily upon its inspiration; this map is bigger, harder, and more fun than the original in just about every way. it doesn't use doom 2's bestiary to its full potential - the arachnotron and pain elemental are nowhere to be found - but what it does use it uses well (though i do feel like the mancubus is a bit over represented in this). despite that, it's still fairly easy, with the hardest bit likely being the very start of the map when you have nothing but a shotgun and have to deal with dozens upon dozens of hellspawn, as well as the various encounters with the cyberdemon.   while it is large and it is comprised primarily of crate mazes, it's actually pretty easy to navigate your way around the map. it's divided into several distinct areas, all of which have landmarks to help the player know where exactly they are. i will say, however, that having almost nothing but crates does make the map feel a bit samey after a while, which for a map of this size isn't ideal.   overall, if you're big into exploration and aren't super concerned about not being challenged to an extreme degree, then there's no reason not to check this out. it's fun, rewarding, and while the looks can be a bit monotonous the gameplay is varied enough to keep things interesting.

      I've just finished playing all the maps, and seeing this TNT maps remade is a great feeling. Generally they are all a step above their original counter part, but also having played TNT Revilution I can't help but compare then, and putting the maps that pull the same inspiration side by side there is no contest, Renascence is left way behind, not to say there are bad, but Transduction and Fortress of Bullets are just in another League.
      Now, Taking advantage that I'm talking about Revilution it's map 18 (Hell's Signs) was made by Eternal and probrably is a little glimpse of what episode 2 of Renascence could've been. Finally, I find it very tragic that this isn't getting a sequel, but since Eternal still an active mapper so the hope isn't complete lost.

      Are we moving on from the NUTS meme reviews and making serious Ancient Aliens reviews now?   Okay, here's mine:   I have played this, and I plan to play it again...
