The Good:

-          Stunning visuals - they don't come much better than this!

-          Non Linear, huge levels

-          “A bit difficult,” yet fair, for the first 9 Maps

-          Decent music

-          Tons of clever and fantastic puzzles

-          For only having 11 Maps, it will take you as long as it will for a full 32 Map Megawad

 

The Bad:

-          Maps 10 & Map 11 are complete slaughterfests (which I absolutely loathe)

-          To make matters worse, there's nowhere near enough ammo for Maps 10 and 11

-          Some-to-most Secrets are quite a bit difficult to find throughout the entire game

-          Hitscanners are wayyy too exaggerated. I was getting picked off by Zombieguys and shotguns from a virtual 500 yards away.

-          Hope you like fighting Revenants; they’re the most plentiful monster in the entire game

 

The Ugly:

-          Missing Red Key in Map 09 if playing on the 2 easiest levels.

-          Some large rooms have 4-6 Arch Viles with dozens of Cacodemons and everything else.

 

In Short:

 

Bring your itchy trigger finger to this game. It’s a great balance between puzzle solving and continuous dog fighting. I admit that I loved this WAD and had fun with it right up until Map 10 because of this. Then it turns into a complete clusterf*ck. There is no way, on single player, you’re going to get through the last 2 Maps without using God Mode AND unlimited ammo.

 

I completed this game initially on HMP. After the game was over, I started a new one on ITYTD and immediately IDCLEV’ed to Map 09 to see if what I read was true from other reviews and it was! :(

The Red Key is missing. I took one star off for that and one star off because the last 2 Maps being slaughterfests. “A bit difficult” is not the same as slaugherfest. You’d think the Red Key issue would be corrected by now, but I’ve seen no patch for it.

 

If you are into a game that has a fine balance of puzzles and shooting and don’t mind the slaughterfesty last two levels, then download and have fun. Just remember if you play on the 2 easiest levels, pull up the console and “Give Keys” on Map 09 when you can’t find the Red one in the room with the Cyberdemons.

EPIC journey through 11 completely different levels. Stunning visuals: from tiny details to grand architecture.

These maps are challenging, but not impossible. Had to retreat to HMP on the two latest levels, though.

 

My favorite level is Felt (library). So many passage ways to explore.

Fantastic wad with some really impressive architecture that just keeps getting better with each level. Very challenging gameplay too, even on HMP!

Recommended.

One of the best mapsets I played this year.  Difficulty was challenging without frustrating.  Music gave the perfect environmental ambiance for each map.  My only quibble was the last stretch of the last map where I had no more ammo.

I remember when I first tested this. The opening level was really promising: a sweet-looking cliffside techbase with a distinct visual style and fun game play (I'm weak for some well placed barrels). Second was almost as good. Then it started to get heavier and visual style changed to temples and stone which is my least favorite so I put the WAD on hold for a second testing.


And I'm glad I tested this again now because the remaining levels are also really well made and good-looking. Some of the temple levels get a bit too switch-hunty but at least most of the buttons did something within the same area and you didn't have to wonder if something opened at the other side of the level. The library level had some nice puzzles with switches that opened other switches that lead to secrets within secrets. There was usually at least one thing in most of the levels that made them stand out. Like in MAP09 the caged circle with the toxic moat and sequentially raising platforms was a neat trick. The last map was a great finale for this disjunction of levels, a beautiful and icy outdoor map with a sky high tower you had to climb to beat the mapset. And there's always something pleasing in killing hundreds of Cacodemons in vast open areas. Seeing them dropping from the sky one by one like overripe tomatoes makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

 

Like another reviewer said there's one showstopper bug in MAP09. Red skull key is not in the map for skill 0 and 1.

 

And I know this level is not designed for coop but on MAP10 you can make the middle area inaccessible in coop because of bars that raise to block entrance to the area.

 

My rating: 4.1/5

small mapset is a complete misnomer. this set takes about as long as a full megawad. very promising on the onset, but the later maps just made me lose all fucking patience. incredibly annoying to speedrun, secrets and level layout are also hard to get around too. also the red key is missing on MAP09 for ITYTD/HNTR.

This wad is absolutely astounding, it almost immediately became one of my favorite wads of all time. All maps are amazingly designed and really fun to play.

The text file doesn't lie - the maps are very diverse and don't feel like they just reiterate the same concept like it happens in some WADs. They are also very good looking and very playable - well, maybe apart MAP11 which is a bit too exaggerated.

      Possibly my favorite Ultimate Doom megawad. Although its first half feels like DTWID, it quickly becomes a much more twisted and demented take on the familiar techbase/hell aesthetic. Expect well hidden secrets, tight corridors, and some tough encounters in large, complex levels. In keeping with Ult Doom's tone, NaturalTvventy layers the atomphere on thick to create levels that feel genuinely hostile and evil, even more so than in the original.    If you have a soft spot in your heart for the original Ultimate Doom, this megawad is a must play. NEIS makes you realize how rock solid the original Doom formula is, even without the SSG and revenants.

      An odd wad in which you play a Hexen class while fighting Heretic monsters in Heretic-textured levels. Surprisingly, it works pretty well, and is an interesting change of pace from either game. It retains Hexen's hub design, although it's not at all puzzley, just a "go and collect 3 items and return to the hub" quest. It's very combat-focused (there's almost 400 enemies in the final level), but unlike some Heretic maps, it doesn't end up feeling like a slog. Perhaps Hexen's weapons are just more powerful than Corvus's. The level design is very good, besides a couple of sore spots (the cramped areas of the lava level, the metal maze in the final level). The boss, D'Sparil, is much easier to kill than he was in Heretic; he probably should've been modded to have a better chance against Hexen's warriors.

      A fun heavily modified tougher version of Doom 1's E1M6 dated back in April of 94(yes same month of origwad). Its starts a bit hectic but with so many shotgun guys and plenty of health throughout the map, its actually not that hard to go through. However like any 94 wad, it has typical misaligned textures, a few HOMs, and had to use noclip cheat to grab the last card key due to ceiling being too low to pass under. Despite its age and a few minor stuff, its a fun wad from 1994 and I would recommend to give it a try :)

      Excellent wad for Hexen fans. It stays true to the style/spirit of the original game while introducing new ideas. The level / hub design is interesting, the combat is well-balanced, texturing is well-done and well-aligned, and there are plenty of interesting scripted events. The wings are used in a very smart way - you're able reach many previously unreachable items and paths. The only thing I disliked was the "boss" of the final level. I won't spoil it, but it's quite disappointing.   Unfortunately there is a bug in The Castle Of Fluft - the flame mask switch is not set to "repeatable", so if you try to use it without the prerequisite mask, you won't be able to use it again when you do. If you encounter this bug, type "puke 10" to activate the script the mask normally would.

      This seems like a semi-hidden gem. The author's other WAD Crimson Canyon won a Cacoward, though I prefer this one.   It certainly lives up to its namesake. The textures are all Hell's green marble and blood, supplemented with custom textures including some modified Giger designs and some creepy sprites I recognize from Monolith's Blood. The map designs are seriously contorted. It's probably a divisive aspect of the set. In some levels the angular layouts wrap around themselves in a jagged mesh, creating devilish mazes with slightly obscure progression, and where fireballs can fly at you from different parts of the map. Other parts are darker and more claustrophobic. It's all a totally hostile atmosphere.   There are some common themes gameplay-wise but you'll know them by map 2. A big one is ammo constriction, especially on UV. Certain maps seem near unbeatable without finding key secrets.   This was actually one of the first WADs I completed a few years ago, and on revisiting it it feels very fresh. Like most memorable WADs, it rides on strong concepts and some devilish gameplay while targeting a distinctive theme.
