meh. Gameplay was really slow, but at a consistent pace. about half of the caves are on the map. Detail was ok, same texture used. Music was probably the best part of the wad. 2/5

Played @ UV. Consistent theme of endlessly repeated simple curving corridors, only connected with some open areas or other corridors. Only a few textures are used, overall monster placement is poor. Automap doesn't show some parts of the map, making one lost at times. Gameplay really couldn't keep me interested, so I gave up at around 19:00. BTW quite easy @ UV. 3/5 due to the amount of work.

Pretty decent map with nice design. It'd do better without the missing automap, though.

      Horribly glitchy and impossible to see or do anything in the game. Literally every single texture is glitched out, only thing that works normally is the shooting sounds. 5/5

      I wanted to try this mod because everyone said it was really good and it won an award, but it must have been corrupted during the upload because it is literally unplayable. Horribly glitchy and impossible to see or do anything in the game. Literally every single texture is glitched out, only thing that works normally is the shooting sounds. Are people rating this 5 and calling it art as a joke or something? If so, I don't get it. :/

      Everyone has a doom game they remember with wistful nostalgia as their first wad. For most, it's Doom II, Doom 1, or for some, Final Doom.

      JPCP is mine, and five years after first finding it I've published my own wad and am working on two more.   Thank you.

      Okay, so like, I get why this one was on the Most Memorable Maps list. I understand. It's a distinct map for sure. But, like... I dunno, it doesn't feel that memorable to me. Is it really the 85th most memorable Doom map ever? I know I've bitched about this before, but in what world is this map more memorable than 96% of Going Down?   The map itself is pretty alright. It's quite a long one, so iori absolutely deserves props for keeping my attention for its entire runtime. The visuals are astonishing for 2006 and have aged surprisingly well. My main gripe is that the actual gameplay of "Songs of the Damned" just sorta... exists? It's not bad (mostly), but the level's so nonlinear that none of the fights even really feel like "fights," it's more "inconvenient happenstances that tend to bleed together." That usually isn't an issue for me (the fights in "Warp of Time" also just kinda exist), but this isn't the kind of map where aesthetics can completely carry it. All of the fights feel like such afterthoughts that I'm constantly wondering whether I'm actually doing something right, if I skipped a key, or if there was a secret earlier in the level that makes this one section way faster.   The encounter in the graveyard feels especially sloppy. iori just kinda slapped a bunch of monsters in there at random in this map where ammo isn't exactly plentiful WELL before you can get a Super Shotgun (making the whole encounter really tedious if you're trying to save ammo (which you should be)) and then had the GALL to make me solve a really confusing puzzle that instantly kills you if you get it wrong. Seriously? Why?   Like always, no shade to the actual writers of the Memorable Maps list, but I struggle to think of reasons that "Songs of the Damned" earns its spot on the list outside of historical significance. I do still think it's worth playing to some extent, but with the caveat that (at least in my opinion) it's better as a history lesson.   OVERALL RATING: 6/10
