This wad is pretty lame for something made in 4 years, a lot more revisions and ideas could be made in here.

This deserves between 3 and 4 stars. The detailing is a bit sprase, but the gameplay is honest a lot of fun. Not too hard, not too east, fun "blast through" maps, right up my alley. This would be a 5 if all the maps looks as good as the later ones (Map20 is quite nice, for example). Good work!

People are unjustly judging this WAD by the initial maps. It pick ups after a while. Maps get better design and better gameplay. Considering this, it's still a mix of strange gimmicks, mediocre maps and few good maps. Most of the music tracks, while reminding of Amiga tunes, are too scratchy and annoying. There are some pearls in this WAD, so it's definitely playable and beatable if you're ready to either skip or suffer through the fishnet of weirdness.

Slightly above typical Joe Ilya release quality-wise. 1995-grade aesthetics, 1995-grade playability, some shoehorned Zdoomisms that sadly improve neither.

There are far worse .wads than this one. That doesn't make this one suck any less.

I can respect the effort, and I respect the fact that author understands doom builder at a technical level. Also, this isn't another one of those troll/joke wads, which I guess is a plus considering how much of them we get nowadays. Other that that, I dont have much good to say about what few maps I have played. Design/visuals are borderline ugly, with no sense for aesthetics and visual polish, and maps play as if author just slapped some monsters on them without much thought.

Excellent example demonstrating that understanding how DB2 works, and using it for creating nice levels with decent gameplay, are two totally different skills. Author understands the techniques DB2 offers, but most of the levels have just poor layout, poor ambiance, and at best awful gameplay. As DooM is first and for all about gameplay: small 2* for the huge effort, but it was horrible to play it out for giving a correct review. BTW a lot of these levels have been uploaded earlier.

My desire to keep playing Doom is what needs restoring after playing ten maps of this crap.

design is very 90s, and gameplay is pretty wonky. I really don't like it that much sry.

Most maps feel highly amateurish, in both visuals and gameplay. Quality improves as you go on, and it is clear that author was slowly starting to master doom builder and improve his skills as a mapper. Still, even the later maps don't reach a must play level and they are not worthy of suffering through author's truly abysmal early works. I suffered through this, you don't have to.

One of the best megawads I've ever played. The earlier levels where a little bit too underwhelming even in UV, though. So, 4/5.

5 stars because it's pretty decent overall and made game play mods incompatible.

The readme mentions being released on 6/17/2012, but the wad was actually finished on 6/17/2015. It was started in 2012, and the year was never updated. Just in case anyone was wondering.

      I guess this was meant to be a serious wad, just using a trick to make the C-Demon hard to see. I don't think it was a deliberate troll of the style that caught on later, eg Sand Chain and the Terry wads. IMHO it nowhere near holds the record for "worst wad ever" (even if it did once) so it is now "over-rated" in that respect. There are wads where you die quicker (eg "Stupid Benchmark #1"), and wads with worse graphics( eg "Sand Chain").  TBH, after all the hype I was a bit disappointed, I was expecting worse LoL.

      Doomers these days have varying levels of patience. I know I have some of the worst when it comes to quickly finishing areas and moving on, which is why I prefer shorter levels most of the time. this particular map, a Maximum Doom map by the way, is one that completely tested my patience.   this is 8 levels long, from E1M1 to E1M8, and is sort of a proto-slaughtermap episode replacement. every map here has at least 200 monsters, and the layouts of each say that they are compact in size. so the action would be pretty good and fun right?   WRONG   while it's fun to kill all these enemies, this is honestly horribly balanced. on the first level, you only really get a shotgun and a chaingun, and it took me a while to get just one armor too. is that the worst part? I can actually enjoy the challenge of such a gameplay scenario so no. what's problematic about each and every level in this wad is that when you're not killing enemies, you're just sort of fucking around. in other words, you're switch hunting. but this is the worst kind due to lifts that have zero indications that they are lifts, as well as switches that have zero indication of what they did. not to mention some walls are triggers, when they really don't have any indication that they really do anything. oh yes, and mandatory secrets and backtracking. I would like the combat more if it gave more weapons too, not one plasma gun or BFG in sight, and all that backtracking just...fucking...headdesk. there's no reliable way to even speedrun this, to the point where I wonder if the author ever realized that other's would tire the fuck out over it. "these are the easy ones" this has all the hallmarks of a bad Maximum Doom map.   it's amazing how varied my Maximum Doom experience is so far. there are some really fun maps, mediocre but quick maps, and some long and nasty ones. I'm honestly trying to avoid reviewing any maps from there but i'll make an exception for this particular one since it's just unbelievably bad.

      Pointless crap.  A small yard, empty except for a futuristic shotgun. No monsters and no exit. See my screenshot and you've seen it all.

      Classic funny little skin, still used in servers to this day so I think it deserves some love.   I like that the voice clip says “WHERE ARE A MY PANTS?”

      More an exercise in 3-d artwork than a game. Just someone's bedroom with a HK in a tiny lobby outside the door, and a Caco in a tiny yard outside the window. A BFG and Invisibilty Sphere are also in the yard but you can't get out there. I think the name is a clue - maybe this was the start of a bigger level, then abandoned. He ought to have allowed it as a base for development.
