much better than 3ha2. the levels all play well, and it does get hard at the end, but only MAP32, MAP29, and MAP30 felt like true slaughtermaps.

Well that was a random mix of crazy. It’s impressive what can be done with 3 hours. Some are better at it than others but overall all of these are competent maps. Some perhaps... good in their own way. While this was not my favorite style of wad, at all, it was still enjoyable to go through. Taking on one a day, sometimes more, given the short and sweet nature was pleasing. Didn’t think I would but some actually surprised me with how much I liked them. 4/5

 

Check out the Doom Wad of the Month Club's playthrough for an in depth look.

At first you lull yourself into the simple but fun Doom 2 replica, play through a few maps, think the WAD is fun and then ANAL FUCK TO THE FACE HAPPENS! (just imagine how that must look). I think that maybe playing it on a difficulty level lower than UV would make the experience more smooth and less crushing as I can't recommend UV unless you like retrying a lot. I still have no idea how you're supposed to survive being suddenly surrounded by an army of arch-viles.

Well designed levels and solid fast paced gameplay. Can turn into a bit of a slaughter fest in the later levels

      Absolutely top notch. Fun to explore, great combat, and amazing to see how this incredibly intricate level unwraps itself as you progress. Vanilla compatibility just makes it even more impressive.

      we need more good Ultimate Doom wads. this was nice, plasma gun combat at first, when it opens up, it's chaotically good. the three keys weren't that hard to figure out, although the puzzle for the red key stands out the most. some nice and sharp (yes) ideas overall.

      Xaser mastery of the highest order, demonstrating his command of architecture, texturing, (sharp) angles, lighting, and mood.

      well, combat may not be so bad, but there's a surprising lack of variety. this starts off in a mostly pistol-oriented map, where you get a chaingun at the end, and then the next two maps are moderately long. the final three maps can put some of the ones from Eternal Doom to shame, with some puzzling to do, some of it actually more frustrating than I would be led to expect. there's many dubious design decisions that simply must be pointed out. the final secret area in MAP02, what the FUCK? and another secret area in MAP05 with crushers whose sole purpose is to troll you. MAP06 is the best map in a number of ways, feels eerie, has lots of things to it (oh, and lots of items for the item count for each of the maps too). but one particular switch (Linedef 4962) does not work. I actually felt more and more frustrated the more and more I played this, it wasn't challenging, but it sure got me annoyed with how things were laid out.

      I have rated this three stars.

      However, I feel like this megaWAD often gets overlooked despite what it is: a part of history. I came to it late, pretty much 1999/2000-ish, and was my first megaWAD personally, but I was always entranced by what I understood to be the story behind it; in a scene utterly dominated by the IBM PC-compatibles/DOS crowd and their (relative) wealth of tools, Macintosh DOOMers came together to show that they too can put together a full-length campaign for Doom II that wasn't going to let those DOS guys totally steal the show.

      And they did. Kind of. With the apparently-unstable-at-best HellMaker crashing every single-figure number of minutes at times, a handful of eager mappers (including the still-active-at-time-of-writing Steve Duff), some of which were authoring their first ever maps, delivered an experience that is to me as interesting as it is varied; in terms of both experience and quality, I have to admit. There are some poor maps here (Sewers, by Jim Bagrow - I'm looking right at you) but there are some epic adventures rivalling those of TNT: Evilution, if not aesthetically (hey, some of them come close) then in length and spectacle.

      What you're getting here is almost like a hidden piece of history that I feel stands proudly as an underdog with its peers. An underdog that isn't always well-behaved (many maps can be rendered uncompletable with the wrong actions taken, including one of the secret maps if you dare enter the basement without the three keys) but at its best (which is usually the maps by Rob Berkowitz or Duff himself) is an entertaining and oft-neglected slice of '90s mapping.
