I like this mapset. It's short but with constant action. The maps progress slowly from base theme to hell, but unfortunately they do seem a bit "samey". Maybe that's due to the use of blocky design, but then again this isn't visible that much. The maps are rather open in overall.

 

It isn't anything mind blowing, but it's well done and if you like playing standard Doom, you will like this mapset.

I very liked the structure of the maps, the general atmosphere/setting and the music. The maps have personality and are immersive. They are properly long and articulated. The fights instead are not equally good: mostly not bad but often messy and unnerving. Sometime i found the ammunitions to be almost insufficient. Also some weapons are given to the player too late in the episode (chainsaw: map7, BFG: map10. Maybe it's me??).

In short: good wad but don't expect top notch battles.

      The first three maps are only decent, but the WAD really shines with map four and five. Map four is a big enemy base with complex architecture, but a somewhat confusing layout. It still manages to take you into interesting firefights. On the other hand, map five, my favorite, makes you decend into a small but dense underground base, chock-full of enemies. The combat here is fast and deadly, ending with a neat head of Romero fight. I had a great time with it.

      This early christmas themed megawad loves the sound of classic carols as much as it does the shriek of 10 revenants waking up. I had fun roleplaying as Santa Claus, screaming "O-OPEN" at every wall, but the novelty of this gimmick is stretched a bit thin overall. The maps are a bit crude and you can tell some were originally meant for DM. Still, it's a worthy effort.

      Short TC with a lovely western setting. I wish it was longer, but it's great nonetheless.

      I'm not the biggest fan of the Serenity series, but Infinity might be its best entry. The maps are mostly fun to navigate and they feature some decent design. I'm just not sure I like the way the fights are designed. It's not uncommon for rooms to be packed with enemies (mostly sergeants). I found myself blasting my shotgun through a doorway a bit too often for my tastes. Still, it features some nice MIDIs, so the experience is mostly fun.
