Well, as someone's 1st wad from 95 it's not bad. Very plain and very few details, some aras without any reason, monsters are very easy, no armour included (or I didn't find any). And I love chaingunners traps, when suddenly come out a horde of cgguys and no cover. But it's common in that era, I think.

A debut level from 1995, by the delightfully named and no doubt very horny Nick Adair. It's his only level, and it's better than I expected; the textures and layout have no obvious mistakes. The level is essentially a large square dark arena with some rooms and corridors around the edge, plus an almost totally deserted outdoors area (it has some triplines that don't do anything). Unfortunately it's totally dull in single-player, although it might work in Deathmatch if it was brighter.

      I believe this pack sets a new standard for this series - this is the best one with all maps pulling through. Maybe I wasn't fond of the endless "Living End" tributes, but the maps are nicely twisted to not feel like a repetition of the old map.   Some maps can be lengthy, but the entire pack shouldn't take an hour to beat. Difficulty is moderate.

      Excellent re-imagining of Doom II's last episode. Some levels are noticeably close to their originals but with so much more detail and depth to them. I thought the gameplay was really good too. Amazing all around.

      The map description states that Haruko tried to express his depressive feelings through the texturing and that came through. The dim lighting and midi went a long way in helping it to sell the depressive feeling.   The geometry was solid with some particularly nice detailing here and there but the actual layout was really good. The central hub worked well with keeping you on track.   The monster placement was on point and led to interesting fights - particularly the ones involving archviles. I really found the difficulty to be just about perfect on UV.   The crescendo at the end worked very well where it was tough but understandable and beatable. At first it's a chaotic mess of monsters, archviles and an Icon of Sin but as you work your way through the madness it starts to make sense.   It takes care and attention to try to express something as abstract as an emotion (other than rage) through Doom wads and I think Greymood did that with the gameplay to back it up. I'd be interested to hear from Haruko if any particular set-piece or element was representative of anything.

      Great re-imagination of Doom 2, the levels look and play good with each having they're own theme and / or different progression style, keeping things fresh, definitely recommended.

      This is okay.  Some unused beta content, lotta console content.  I can appreciate the increased difficulty, but some of the texture and music choices early-on kinda put me off.  Didn't much care for E5M4.   It's not terrible, but it isn't hard to see why the beta maps were scrapped from the final version of the game.  Give it a try, if you're feeling bold.
