About This File

A sewage works in your hometown has fallen prey to the demons that invaded planet Earth. Having been parachuted into the heart of the complex, it is your job to clean up. There is a disgusting odour in the air, and it isn't just the smell of unprocessed sewage putrefying in the sunshine. If you beat the demonic invaders then you will have to find your own way out. Local human survivors say that the main entrance has been barricaded or damaged; the old sewer tunnels are perilous but may be your only alternative.

Quite a really nice "realistic" visual style. But nowadays, this isn't enough if the map isn't well accustomized for playability. Many areas were cramped way too much. If they were 3-times wider and probably also higher, it'd be more comfortable to move around there. Gameplay had its weak moments: PE right at start, Spectre horde, many unnecessary high-HP monsters, then repeated same-y low-tier enemy corridor shootage - but other than that, it was enjoyable. Still 4/5. :)

Played @ UV. Map starts with excellent gameplay: intense but not slaughtery, keeps that until 2/3 of the map, and finishes leaving me disappointed. The last part could imho better been split-off, it simply doesn't fit. New textures are fine. Architecture is rectangular, but not boring, and even darkness works well - which shows development skills. Solid 4/5 for the first 2/3, and skip the last part.

Fun panic start: monsters everywhere, not much ammo. Takes some time to find enough weaponry to fight back. But even after that the map remains tough thanks to creative monster placement and traps. The very dark parts were a bit frustrating for me but thrilling too, so I enjoyed them. And it all ends with a classic cyberdemon showdown on the street. Quite an adventure with original ideas and some cute new graphics thrown in. Recommended.

^^ I wish the previous reviewer had been more specific about what was disappointing. I can fix bad texture coordinates, but I can't change the story. How can the outside of a building not fit the inside?

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
