I'm breaking up with Valiant to start my new love with Hellbound. Best DOOM mapset that has been made. I have replayed it more than once with Brutal DOOM Platinum and Final Doomer(Hellboundguy class) and I still can't get tired of it. Cities, hellish maps, tech bases, I just love it. I also really like the combination of E2M1, E2M2 and E2M3 in Map19. Amazing stuff right there, I strongly recommend this
I forgot to review it when I first finished it, but I played it again with final doomer so I think it's time.
Ancient aliens is beautiful, and it plays as well as it looks. SkillSaw gives some of his best maps in his career, only matched by his heartland performance. But the heavy lifting is really done by the presentation, stewboys midis always fit, and the fact the soundtrack is bespoke is incredible. I personally enjoy all of the maps, only the secret maps have any issues fitting in, and secret maps are allowed to not be great. My only issue with the wad are the inconsistent 3rd episode, and ironically it's skillsaw's work in that episode that is probably the worst (So good, but not as good as the earlier work in the wad) as the rest of the team turns in great work.
