About This File

A simple map in-E1M7-style, no scripts or whatsoever, it should rapresent an old style-base like those made by ID Software back in 1993. Hope you'll enjoy it.

Tries so hard to be loved that I feel as though I'm kicking a puppy. All the ingredients of a good map are here but everything is slightly off, like own-brand cereal. Many of the texture choices are in poor taste (wooden computer room, anyone?), lighting is too stark (nonsensical in one room), and then there are the pegged door tracks. Texture alignment has been detrimentally automated (last time I checked monitors don't bend round corners - but this is the future). Also, it's "represent" not "rapresent".

Requires ZDoom: in vanilla\Boom you can't get out of the starting room. It's a E1 style base but I feel like it misses all the key features that made E1 good. What you get is a bunch of semi-cramped rooms connected by doors: no large or just memorable areas, no important centerpieces, no cool outdoor views, no expansive secrets, no interesting optional areas or particularly clever progression. It just isn't really that fun to play through. The E1 texturing is here but the rest of E1 isn't.

Haha, I had to laught a couple of times playing this chaotic wad apparently made by a secrets lover :-). Considered as a map with a big wink: 4/5. Considered seriously, played @ UV: base looks ok but lacks on technical aspects and gameplay (destroyed by the secrets): 2/5. Overall: 3/5 for the efford. @ Claudio: when using DoomBuilder2, use F4 (Map Analysis Mode) to check your map on a regular base. BTW thing 70 (burning barrel) is not in DooM but in DooM2.

      I...did not review this, okay. well, it's blue and it's pretty decent and setpiece-y. get used to ribbiks' style and this one is just like all his other maps, very well-designed and fun to play. just watch out for MAP03's final area.

      it's one of those classic 90's wads you can probably just sift through, but it's not that good. plenty of inescapable pits, some awful level progression, and some actually trollish crusher placement lie within this one.

      A few really good maps supported by a bunch of alright ones. Visuals are mostly Plutonia-inspired, with the occasional veering into Shores of Hell type mish-mash architecture. Difficulty is about on par with DOOM2.wad I think. Overall, a rather pedestrian affair, although the standout maps are certainly worth the time.

      BACK TO SATURN X E1: GET OUT OF MY STATIONS REVIEW:   The Good:   - Stunning visuals   - Great monster placement   - Lots of (clever) secrets and they are rewarding   - Enough ammo to keep you going   - The names of the Maps LOL!   - Loads of fun   - Awesome music!   The Bad:   - Not long enough. LOL! I loved it so much, I didn't want it to end!   In Short: I've actually played this fantastic WAD at least 6 or 7 times. Why? This is my second favorite WAD of all time, only bested by its successor, BTSX Episode 2: Fountain of Sparks. I remember the very first time I played it a couple of years ago like it was yesterday. How many times can you say that (in a good way) about a game?   I remember being completely blown away by the architectural designs at the time. I even remember giggling as I sunk in the ocean on the final Map, only to read something like "To Be Continued..." and thinking, "Awww....it's over." But I admit that, like everyone else, I had loads of fun with this.    There is lack of a "customary" final boss (I wasn't certain if this was a "Good" or "Bad" element of the game, hence why it's in neither category above - it really will depend on the player so I kept it neutral). But don't let that deter you! The final "stage" in the last (playable) Map is as memorable as it is wicked, and it'll keep you on your toes just like any other customary boss!   Play this WAD if it's the only WAD you ever play. Definite replay value.   Well deserved Cacoward. Thanks, Team, for making it!   5 out of 5 stars with me.  ~ dylux

      JENESIS REVIEW:   - Single Player - UV Settings - Pistol starts every Map - Third time playing in about 4-5 years span   The Good:    - Continuous Maps    - Great architecture    - Incredible Hellish themes    - Excellent monster placement    - Clever puzzles    - Loads of secrets. Most are clever as well.    - Great music    - Lots of stuff to get you alive and stocked    - Levels are just the right size. Not small nor are they huuuuuuge.    - Not a slaughterfest, but not easy either. Difficulty is perfect for single player.   The Bad:     - There's no Jenesis II.    In short:   Sometimes, finding a new DooM WAD to play is like finding a decent horror movie to watch: You're going to go through a few crappy ones before you find one that makes it all worthwhile. Jenesis is one of those WADS to play that's worth going through some crappy ones first.   If you are looking for a great balance between dog fighting and puzzle solving, then Jenesis is for you. This game was fun as hell - every level.    Anyone who plays this can easily tell that MUCH work went into this fantastic game. It's WADs like this one that keep me playing. Bravo Mr. Paddock!   You have huge shoes to fill, Jenesis - for my next WAD I play. One of my all time faves. Well deserved Cacoward. What a game! :)   5 out of 5 Stars.
