About This File

Warning: This map is big! There's 400+ monsters on Ultra Violence. And the layout is non-linear. It'll probably take you an hour to complete unless you are really good. So, if you're not a fan of that combination, then... well, just don't complain about it I guess. It's all intentional :)

This level is my interpretation of an action filled and slightly different episode 2 level. I tried to stay true to the style of eps. 2, but cranked it up a bit. It's like my "Rip it, Tear it, Smash it!", only on drugs! As I said, there's a ton of monsters, a crazy cool metal track and enough variety in the gameplay to make you dizzy! I loved making this level and I feel it's the best one I've made in a loooong time. It's on a personal top three of my own work.

It has been tested in a variety of sourceports and we've tried to optimize it to be compatible with as many as possible. I don't know what else to say, really. Just play it. I'm sure most of you will enjoy it :)

A great level. Difficulty is good, weapon and monster placement also good. Nothing mind-blowingly different but who cares really when it's this fun to play? 4 stars. -TRRobin.

Fun map. I liked it. It's like E3M3 but on steroids.

Chris Hansen returns with yet another awesome classic DOOM map, this time opting for a more non-linear approach with a bit more difficulty than his usual offerings. The level manages to keep you on your toes most of the time, with many good traps and surprises along with general good gameplay. Nice architecture and killer music put the icing on the cake. Great wad, 5/5!

A fairly fine Doom 1 level, although the layout is a bit confusing at times.

25 minutes taking my time, 50% of my damage came from stupid acid pits without given Suit, tried to take down the last monsters but was too long and think I didn't have enough ammo, many of the traps are just spending time camping and shooting straight

You know a WAD is good when someone who did not pass it but gave it 5 stars. Also, crank that music volume up, because the MIDI is glorious.

Played @ UV. Cons: some texture misalignments, often cramped, UV might be more intense, adhd music. Pro: compact but very good map layout, consistent and effective texture use, very well balanced ammo placement (berserk use), mostly very well monster placement (no dumb monster popups) - and +1 for not ending with the almost inevitable cybie, gave 40 minutes of fun. Overall: not legendary, but 4+1 = 5/5.

Well, not legendary but I definitely had fun. Kinda mazey and some fights are skippable plus some monsters are placed that way they can make you slightly mad. But hey, it's totally worth your time!

      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.
