Putrefier is one of those maps that go for atmosphere instead of out right slaughter and action. There's plenty of that, too, but in my opinion the atmosphere is front and center. Accompanied only by an ambient hum you explore this architectural marvel of a doom map always looking at its details while getting smashed to bits because you weren't paying attention. And attention you must pay, for the map's switches can sometimes be hard to see. Having such an intricate and detailed map, which is at times quite dark in places has its drawbacks, I guess. But don't worry, the fights and the overall feeling of the maps definitely make up for it.

 

Also, it's just one map. Don't act like you have something better to do and play it.

Much better than Valhalla, although the fighting is still pretty hard. Ignore cybermind, they don't know what they're talking about.

killer design, gameplay is fun at times but offers a lot of backtracking.

Q2 style visuals, absolutely illogical "run from one switch to another" gameplay and very poor monster fighting

No. Fitting. Words. The fact that as I see, tons of resources for your maps are made by yourself, makes it even more outstanding.

Excellent architecture and visuals. The game play was not so hot however. Constant back-tracking and switch hunting ruins the pace -- in fact it got downright dull and frustrating. What was really irritating were that the switches were colored grey and on grey walls, took me a long time to find the first one. Enemy placement doesn't really make use of the excellent architecture. In fact, nothing particularly interesting about the combat in the map in general. Looks super good, but no fun.

Wow! What amazing design this level has. Dark, atmospheric, excellent gameplay and well balanced ammo and health placement. What more could you ask for? Definately the full 5/5 from me. -TRRobin.

the design, architecture, and graphics were great, but the framerate was a little slow so people with slow computers might want to stay away from this one. the invisible imps were a pain, and the game crashed while trying to save at one point, thus erasing the rest of my saves(seemed odd though). overall, meh. 2.5/5

Unbelievable. No wad I've played has come close to the immersion, anxiety and fun I had playing this. Not the classics from the 90s or the modern wad offerings from various doom forums. Everything about Putrefier is mind altering. The visuals, the level design, and the eerie barely-there music come together to create an experience that even modern video games from both indie devs and big studios alike haven't given me. An easy 5 out of 5

This has to be the worst map I have ever played!!! Not much to look at either. The author should be ashamed at his lack of attention to detail! -Bizzaro Superman.

One of the best looking maps ever but this was the only level that has slowed my computer. To put into perspective, I lag less fighting 3500 enemies on combat shock 2 than I do walking around this level with 150.

I have a i7 dual core processor, and a 8gb graphics card. I can play Crysis 2 and Skyrim on ultra-high quality with a solid 60fps. I cannot play this at all. A biased 1/5 for me, sorry.

Extremely good level design. Gameplay is fun as well. But there are still some flaws. That generator boss fight was horribly annoying. So 4 stars rather then 5 makes sense to me. ****

      Why the hell have I not been using this. Incredible, 5 stars.

      It was difficult for me, but I enjoyed it, a few more ammo pick ups and maybe some health too, but other than that it's a good level.

      I should've heeded the warnings from the other reviews...

      Horrible and unenjoyable, it's what I can say about this megawad.  Does it really need to be archviles and cyberdemons in every corner and tight corridors, ambushing with nowhere to go?  Yes, textures are very monotonous, and you got corridor after corridor with same floor/ceiling height.  It's extremely annoying to hunt for that switch that will let you continue, and, surprise!  They're hidden inside the walls without being secrets and no hints where to look for, even with ALLMAP cheat you get lost very easily

      Not quite as bad as some other comments said, for an old wad anyway. Playable but easy at UV. Some poor texture alignments, nearly all brightly lit, no atmosphere. New sounds are mostly cranky but I liked the machine gun. The voice sounds the same as in "Wild West Of The North" - WEST.WAD which was by Mike Lasota and which also has cranky (but different again) sounds.
