Nice and short classic-style wad. However, as a huge fan of Eternal's other wads, I was not particularly impressed. End Point contains solid map design but lacks the artistic ambition and memorability of the author's previous output. Feels like Epic 2's earlier maps but with more vanilla-style texturing and heavier reliance on ambushing monsters around corners. Still worth playing for pretty much anyone. 3/5

I'm having trouble deciding if this deserves 5* or mere 4*, but I'm gonna go for the more favorable option, even though there are some shortcomings. The events fall into some repetiteveness and traps become predictable - there's monster around every corner, and there's a corner everywhere. Each map has its own theme which is good. The boss fight devolves into circle-strafing. Apart from this, it's a fairly standard but very well made PWAD. Difficulty - moderate.

if there's one thing I know about Eternal, it's immaculate monster placement. doesn't matter what wad it is, but this is a mapper who will put monsters in corners you won't expect, even after several replays. for this wad, End Point, there's not much to go around to be honest, there's no immersive theme, just seven levels that take place on Earth pretty much. for that, it's certainly not on par with the greats that Eternal has ever made, but it doesn't mean that the wad itself sucks, as none of Eternal's maps ever reach that point. End Point is just nice, no real theme, no real nonsense, just seven decently made levels and that's that. his usage of secrets will be rough, and the railings particularly on MAP05 may be a bit problematic for rocket users, but it's still a worthwhile little adventure wad of sorts.

Very stylish texturing and color schemes. While playing this wad you might feel like you're becoming a well optimized machine, sneakily killing monsters hiding behind corners, looking for familiar traits of secret areas, hugging helpless PEs. Kind of an interesting feeling but also a sign that common tropes dominate over imagination in these maps. Map05 was my favorite (be careful with these railings though or you might accidentally kill yourself). Many nostalgic midis are used.

      well, the concept is good  BUT...   WHAT THE FUCK EVEN IS THIS??

      Definitely shows its age. It was a real grind to play through, mostly due to the levels being boring, but also from a remarkable over-reliance on hitscan, especially shotgunners. For some reason. The third episode does indeed pick up much of the slack, but with the really fun levels being shining exceptions rather than rule for two thirds of the WAD it still left me annoyed and exasperated in the end. The maps look fine most of the time and the music is good to really good, which is something to hold on to. I would still advice my past self to skip most of this one.

      There's not too much for me to say about this one. While it isn't exactly my jam 100% of the time, I'm struggling to see how any creative endeavor could entertain me so thoroughly, throughout all the 32 parts of it. Ancient Aliens is charming, somewhat challenging, mysterious, well-paced... I could iterate over plenty of different variations of lavish praise, but I guess that in and of itself describes my feelings: AA is remarkably well-rounded. A DOOM blockbuster - and I use that description as an honest compliment rather than the pejorative it's sometimes thought of. One for the ages, and it'll be one of the WADs to which many of my future experience will be compared.

      On second thought, this wad is kinda mid if you ask me. After playing through all of it on pistol-start I wasn't really blown away by it. The midi pack that was made for this in 2020 was very nice if you ask me, but why this wad ever deserves a midi pack when it's so bland is what makes me scratch my head. Idk man, I didn't like this one as much as others do :/.

      This reads as an early example of arcade-style mapping.   Areas are defined largely by color combinations, with no real overarching theme to the map: there are silver techbase rooms, brick-like Earth rooms, red hellish rooms, without much in the way of detailing or setting-building -- all centralized around a square hub room with key doors, which repopulates with monsters each time you find a key. It's on the simpler side visually, but still a very clear step above "monotextured square rooms"-type design, with some solid architecture, shapes, and texture combos here and there, and even a clever crushing UFO-like "ring" at one point.    The gameplay concepts are very straightforward, with one exception being a room that has you platforming over damaging floor while closets of lost souls and cacodemons open up. Instead, the bulk of the fighting is more often dished out as blocks of monsters often revealed in closets -- blocks at a density far below what you'd consider slaughter. Some of the potential fun involves herding monsters towards barrels; once I waited several seconds for chaingunners to walk halfway across the room, right next to a clump of barrels I could blow them all up with. The ending fight is designed for you to pour rockets into two static cybs while circling, and I skipped that one.    Completed in a bit under 10 minutes.
