Nine Inch Heels

  

Very rich in atmosphere and variety, outstanding soundtrack, and nicely detailed. If you enjoy GZdoom features, or want to see a good example of what GZdoom can bring to the table, you don't want to miss this amazing experience, because this one's got all the bells and whistles.

 

UV, the intended difficulty, makes for a very nice first time challenge, and displays the author's understanding of how to create dynamic gameplay by way of monster placement. I wouldn't recommend trying this on nightmare difficulty though, because that's when things get messy really fast.


Why am I only giving 4 stars you ask? Because hitscanners are used a bit heavy handed at times, which simply isn't my cup of tea, eventhough it makes perfect sense in terms of theme for this map. In addition to that I can't give 4.5 stars, which I would have done, because that's how good this is.

This is a work of art that deserves way more attention than it has gotten so far. Give it a go, it'll be worth your while.

TL;DR: The only reason I am not giving it a 5 star rating is my own personal bias.

Are you downloading this yet? Just asking, because you should be.

I was completely blown away by this map. The textures are amazing & lighting adds depth. The gameplay is superb & well thought out. Thematic. The custom music is amazing & guides you naturally to a mood & tone. Unquestionably legendary!! Download twice!!

Very cool. Can get a little confusing at times. Colored lighting is always nice to see and the music was quite good. Everyone should try this out.

      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.
