About This File

Doomed Space Wars is a Star Wars-inspired mapset but with mostly Doom enemies and weapons. There are 9 levels divided into 3x 3 level mini episodes and 3 secret levels. At the end of each 3 level mini episode there is a boss. Every map is huge and takes advantages of Zdoom's special features such as 3D floors and reverb. Also there are tons of secrets and a few top secret Easter eggs. The aim for the level design was realism and a dark atmosphere, with huge height variations and a semi linear overlapping progression. I focused hard on lighting and architecture to create a super realistic environment to go with challenging gameplay but there are no slaughtermaps, sorry guys. Also included are 10 exclusive Deathmatch levels.

Also in addition are 9 new monsters thanks to Zdoom's DECORATE feature and also I cannot forget the totally original orchestral soundtrack composed by me with the songs in .mp3 format.

this is quite possibly Paul's most ambitious work to date, with medium-sized levels with proportionate and disproportionate combat throughout the entire set. expect lots of traps, expect arena fights, expect walking on bridges over instadeath pits because this is clearly based off of Star Wars, known for its voids and shit. also expect the unexpected, weird side stuff like the Wolfenstein and Mario easter eggs, this is worth at least one play. best of all these new monsters are all generally well-fitting into the set as a whole except maybe the Afrit, and the Chaos Elemental is a pretty good boss. still very challenging and proves you can have a challenging set without having walls of monsters.

The Good:

 

Jeeez, just about everything!

Stunning graphics – the Star Wars themed atmosphere is just awesome!

Large Maps

Loads of clever Secrets & Puzzles

Great monster placement

You're gonna work for most of the keys

Hardly a Slaughterfest

A few Easter Eggs

 

The Bad:

 

There’s no Doomed Space Wars II

 

In Short:

 

I’ll admit I’m not usually a fan of new monsters implemented into a Doom WAD. And this is why:

The problem is that usually the “new” monsters come off as cheesy, with poor graphics and even worse sounds. Most times, the new monsters don’t fit the theme of the game and that’s a problem for several reasons.

 

But this WAD does NOT have that problem. Mr. C. has created his new monsters into more or less upgrades of the original ones, along with brand new ones, and they all fit perfectly in this game because of its theme. You can tell much work went into creating this entire WAD!

 

You know how in some WADS, you find the final key, open the final respective door and it's usually the EXIT switch (or portal)? HA! Not this game! When you open that final door, that's when you best bring your A game...

 

I had loads of fun with Doomed Space Wars. I just wished it was longer.  

Whether or not you like the PSX sounds is up to you. I personally didn’t mind them.

 

Bravo! Highly recommend.

 

Solid 5 out 5 Stars.

A thoroughly enjoyable space themed map set. Great level design, nice monster, ammo, and secret placement, and not too crazy difficulty either. It's yet another great wad from pcorf.

This is a superb mappack, albeit too heavy on monster closets on harder difficulty levels for my liking. But when played on lower skill levels, this not only is one of the best mappacks released recently but also contains some of the best looking maps, fusing together perfectly classic gameplay, good doom architecture and zdoom features. I only wish more wads like this were made for zdoom. 4.5/5

I completely agree with Csonicgo. This is literally one of the most unfun wads I have memory of playing. Pick up a key, flip up a switch, get an item, EVERYTHING you do literally results in trap doors opening or monsters teleporting everywhere. It gets tiring after literally 30 seconds. This is meant to be a good wad? People must mistake nice looking levels (which these are) with well-playing ones, which these are NOT, not even in the slightest. 0/5, avoid.

Great idea ruined by ammo starvation, lack of health, and numerous monster closets. Stop punishing players for playing your levels by putting everything under a tripwire.

Astonishing mapset! Wonderful detail, wonderful gameplay, great new enemies, great easter-eggs, awesome secret levels to break the monotony of gray. Everything about this mapset is beautiful! Except the "don't do drugs, kids" message...that feels corny and unnecesary and stupid. Ohwell. 100000 stars-1 star=9999 stars, well done sir!

It's Paul Corfiatis, what did you expect? Legendary. -1 million stars for stupid Doom64 sounds, though.

This was more than overdue! I loved Dark Forces with its gloomy setting, and Paul totally nails the atmosphere of that classic and ports it over to Doom. Maps with sometimes impressive dimensions, GZDoom colored lighting support (you really shouldn't play it any other way), an awesome Star Wars-inspired PCorf soundtrack, rewarding secrets, PSX sounds to make monsters sound creepier and lots of love for details in general turn this into one of my favorite Doom projects of 2015. Play it!

      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.
