Very good mapset!  There was epic battles and the atmosphere was a bit like eternal doom.  Difficulty and ammo/hp was nicely tuned.  Very nice work.

(posting this to show viewers this is good shit)

 

Done on HMP/continuous/saves.

 

Really fun maps! Aesthetically they are all very pleasant, I liked the detailing put in every map, particularly the "mushrooms" in map 03, and also the pitch black void as background, adding a feeling of mystery. Good usage a lot of circle stairs which is cool, and I liked other stuff like barrels and pots. 

 

In terms of monster placement and traps, all good, I like this style, sometimes the player is locked in temporary or via switch-hunting, and sometimes they don't, and I liked this variety. Each type of enemy is used to be real dangerous, and I appreciated it didn't border on revs and archies insanity. Slaughter is present in the last maps, but in general they are more about crowd control and massive infighting. Some cool set pieces: a cyber-trio ring; enemies coming out from waterfalls; archviles used in creative ways such as a ring of snipers that raise each one temporary, or locking them to prevent them instantly killing you; controlling nobles with the rockets; a ring with spiders and revenants; and many more.  

 

Some gorgeous midis, Death Bells is present yay!. Secret wise, some very useful ones. I liked that there are computer maps in some of the levels, it's not very common in modern wads so I really appreciate that. 

 

Overall, very recommendable, I'll give this a 9,5/10.

In accordance to its name, this WAD oscillates between excellent gameplay and killing your ass with army of whatever the hell will squash you up against the wall + arch-viles + infinitely tall cacodemons raining at you from High Heavens if you play with infinitely tall actors. To be precise, maps 07 and 09 do that. Other maps are nice. Architecture shows plenty of effort and imagination.

An interesting wad with each map taking on a specific theme for the most part. The visuals are generally good with some real epic moments littered across the wad, that start warehouse room and some of the later maps are good examples. The gameplay is pretty forgiving for the most part but there are some moments which will bring some moments of panic. Some ofthe fights are a little hit and miss at times with some which can be neutralised fairly easily. Overall a really pleasant surprise and a great effort, especially as the author is still in the process of honing their own style. I really look forward to future releases from Forli.

this one is really well done. plenty of variety here, mostly large maps that are expansive but not extremely heavy on the monster count. i imagine this is what Sunder would be if it wasn't a slaughterfest wad. certainly recommended, fuck dem haters.
