It has it's moments fun wise, but it's too "oblige-like" and copy-paste at many parts. Also it just feels unrefined in some places which could have been easily corrected. Not bad, but not great either.

Map layout: some inhousing and a lot of huge open areas. Architecture and ambiance: 4*. Gameplay? Er, well, actually there is no gameplay, just difficulty caused by a zillion of sudden monster popups, snipers and other hordes. Gameplay @ UV consists of repeatedly doing the same 100% predictable thing, so there are no surprises and no adventure feeling at all. 3* for the effort. @ ^why do people this? Maybe because a lot of map designers misinterpret gameplay quality as monster count. Anyway, just my 0.02

First map - ho hum. Second, one of the best maps I've played. And third? Plunges into the stupidest of stupid slaughter wads and ruins the whole experience. Why do people do this?

A lot of fun, but I gave up trying to kill every monster in the third map because I ran out of ammo too easily - I had to do a lot of running towards the end. Good WAD though!

      Map 01: The whole map is one big fight, and I personally really liked it. I enjoyed running around the map using the artifacts littered around in order to kill the swarms of baddies. My only real complaint would be having to kill all the enemies to progress which could be pretty annoying if one of them hides in a really obscure spot.   Map 02: Pretty classic hexen map. It was good but it was the most forgettable map in the wad due to the relatively generic theme. Also the swamp key segment was probably the worst part of the wad due to the amount of stalkers and lack of health. It also fell into the trap of over using slaughtaurs which got annoying pretty fast.   Map 03: ...The idea behind this map and the atmosphere was extremely cool. I personally loved the puzzle with the 5 switches near the start and it was probably my favorite part of the wad. But... The lack of railings made falling off a very common occurrence and the layout got confusing at times. I don't know if it was intentional but in order to get to Yorik's statue I had to jump on the pillars used as decoration. The main complaint would be the over use of wendigos at the start and a pretty anti-climactic boss fight. The sublevel was really fun to explore too.   General: It seems common for hexen wads to do this but there was no 4th weapon. The 4th weapon is the funnest weapon to use and while it could break the difficulty in some sections I think it would be worth it because the majority of the time you are stuck hitting things with your second weapon which feels repetitive.   Overall: While I was pretty negative in this review I still gave it four stars for a reason and that is because this wad is a lot of fun. You could tell every room had thought put into it and the entire wad is just gorgeous. If you can look past the small problems this wad is a amazing experience with a solid story as well. Must play for any hexen fan.

      1998. Nice Heretic map with a good flow. Resource management required. I had a lot of fun learning/playing this one.

      Very good. I prefer Map 23 on to the early stuff tbh. I only didn't give it 5 stars cause I think Speed of Doom takes a similar style and does it better.

      This is the Alpha of Doom... I mean, we are not going to fool ourselves that it is not bad, it is very bad, mainly due to the lack of many things in the HUD   so honestly I didn't like it, for an Alpha it's fairly good at that time, but even so it didn't provoke anything since I wasn't there at that time at all

      Rizera would have surely enjoyed this map, it's just not for me, I find it tedious, but 100% Rizera fan   (also i figure out how softlock me)
