Kind of WAD with hundreds of monsters, many of them attaking you at once, like the typical slaughterfest.  Best to play with OP mods like Russian Overkill to counter the huge monster power arsenal

It's a hard wad, You'll die a lot, If you're good at staging cross fight between monsters then this

is for you. Otherwise its extremely difficult to finish it just by your own bullets.

 

Overall it's a good wad, good map design suitable for this kind of battles, The missing star because

of some imbalances in some maps, Some maps don't have enough armor so you'll fight monsters with a

naked skin, a couple of maps don't have sufficient ammo. Some early maps are much more difficult than

the last ten maps. Maps 31 and 32 are lame. But most maps are hours and hours of fun for me.

So far loving this wad. It is very difficult for me. But I stuck with level 2 and trying to beat it now. I have already figured out the procedure up to the last room. Enjoying the level very much. You can see that a lot of thought was put into this.

 

I also love the level design. Really sleek and imaginative, and also very functional. Everything has a purpose.

 

Exquisite megawad!

A set of maps contain sectors where player need to confront hundreds of monsters. So, these maps only seem to hard because sectors are large. The exception, map 10, contains a lot of cyberdemons, little ammo and is impassable. If you like to organize battles between monsters, this wad for you.

Pizza Steve is...interesting, to say the least. It's a megaWAD full of slaughtermaps, many of which will have a monster count exceeding a thousand. The levels are huge and you're going to need all that room to run around the projectile spam. A recurring thing in many levels is meatwalls consisting of one enemy type. It's comical to splatter meatwalls consisting imps and zombies but less so when it comes to every other monster (especially Revenants and Barons). I'm at least grateful that there weren't any Arch-Vile meatwalls though you'll be facing those in greater number than any one player would like to see. Needless to say, it seems and feels like balance was an afterthought for this megaWAD.

 

As a result of this lack of balance, it's a megaWAD that feels like it's more at home in a co-op setting though you can play it solo, provided you've got mad skills or do like I did and use an OP weapon mod like Russian Overkill, Guncaster, Trailblazer, or Doom Incarnate. Every level starts off as a cathartic blastfest but as you go through each level you may have to take a break from how huge the levels are and from the batshit insane firefights. You're definitely going to want to take breaks when you play through this.

 

Would I recommend this to others? Eh, not really. I'm in the minority in that I love megaWADs like this (and I'll definitely come back to play this in the future) but even I found myself getting fatigued when playing through this and had to take breaks. If you're gonna play it, play it in either co-op or with your favorite OP weapon mod of choice (if you even use weapon mods, which if you don't, that's fine; you do you). Otherwise, you're not really missing anything by skipping this.

played through all 32 levels, all I can say is it is a bad slaughter megawad, has basic texturing and the level layouts don't seem too bad, but all those damn hordes aren't well-balanced somehow. actually liked MAP18 though, felt like a good Courtyard homage.

Extremely basic looking wad overstuffed with helpless hordes of enemies. First levels use default Doom Builder textures a lot, later the design improves a liiittle bit. I only played most maps for like a minute so maybe I'm misunderstanding something, but this seems extremely tedious and stupid, with random pointless cyberdemons everywhere and idiotic armies of monsters that pose little to no threat. This is the kind of stuff that gives slaughtermaps a bad reputation.

      The last chapter was the one I had less memories, perhaps because it's tough. A good time playing.
      Beat it. Everybody frag now. Vangelis. Cool midis.

      A lot better sights and tougher than S1, with another pack of cute midis.

      Pretty entertaining and challenging mapset. The maps start in a somewhat heretic or cave theme at first, and with a really abstract style with just tiny little realistic details. It use TNT as iwad and there are just a few maps with name patches. The rest and the text screens are the ones from TNT. The story is interesting: Serena, B.J. Blazkowicz's wife, worried that, after the incident on 20 Days In Hell (but it could be also after Doom 2 final map), he hasn't returned home yet. So she decide to go search for him. In the proces she found that every map we play is an hour of torture for her husband, and thats from where the title 32 Hours of Pain come. Thematically, the maps use the TNT skies to tell the story, starting with Serena on earth, vayaging throught space on map12 to map20, and reaching hell where her husband is being tortured on map21 to map30   Maps have a good gameplay, and the little and few details really stand out from the abstract design, like in map11 the ship sailing out to space. The design varies from really large and big open areas to really cramped and difficult to traverse tunnels and areas. Thus, it somehow really grasp the TNT feel and style. This also implies, sometimes, obscure progression and switch hunting. The texturing is varied, from monotexturing to using different themes like starbase and marble on the same map, especially on those where the hellish influece is seen as bigger.   I really enjoyed it! Its not a masterpiece, but it certaily has a charm and offers a good challenge. Kristian Aro's story, maybe i'm wrong with this, was use as a base for 2002: A Doom Odyssey later as its pretty similar. This mapset is kinda analogue to Paul Corfiatis The Twilight Zone. Both follow a free thematic texturing from map to map, both have a story mostly told throught little details (TTZ has a proper mapinfo on it, though) and both shows the first mapping efforts of their respective authors and how the ideas here lead to their later awesome mapsets.   I recommend it to anyone who is seeking abstract design and challenge.

      Short, but pretty well done. The best custom Hexen levels I played so far.

      Very decent map from 1995. As previous comments said, it looks like a workplace with two floors tons of openable doors.   The gameplay is very classic but very enjoyable. The progression may be quite confusing, especially about finding the yellow key which was hidden in a little compartment as if it was a secret. However , discovering each room was a pretty exciting experience.    Also this level has a cool sense of place. I really like the idea of creating "elevators" by using teleporters as well as the partially demolished 2nd floor.    Despite being an easy level, some traps may kill you like the surprise monster closet with barons near the author's signature located at the beginning.   Aesthetics are ok but I really enjoyed the use of light gradiants in some corridors , they make the stock textures look a lot better !
