A modern mapset that captures the feel of oldschool maps perfectly. Many of these maps have the potential to become staples in OS duel and DM compilation sets. There are plenty of good set-ups yet they might be considered unconventional, making these maps stand out from other releases in recent years. Standard vanilla themes, clean texturing and structuring. Constant clean-ups minimized any outcroppings that might catch a player for smooth movement. Good variety of weapon spawns and usage, only a few SSG slugfests. Overall good variation in heights throughout the maps without being too over-dramatic.

 

An absolute must try for any OS loving pvp player, and a good time for 1v1 or 3-4 person free for all.

Free-flowing maps with enough space to move around comfortably, well placed weapons / spawns and a very clean yet very classic aesthetic. Absolutely recommended.

      Very solid maps. Not incredibly fond of the ambush-y stuff, especially towards the end when it started to get tiring. The map layouts were superb, and the music choices were fitting. Good effort.

      Wow, so that's how it's done.   Sverre Kvernmo has made a masterful expansion to his original ideas used in Time Gate (Map05 of Eternal Doom).  This is a work of art that plays well.   The level had me running for my life, looking for ammo and wondering where the next attack was going to come from.  The stealth enemies were vicious and well used.  The secrets were well earned and clever I thought.   I loved the piano room-just beautiful.  The overall experience was outstanding, though hard.   Well worth it.

      Bog standard slaughter map. ~300 medium to hard bad guys squashed into a mid sized map. Might be ok if that's your thing. I quit after a couple of rooms.

      Well worth a quick play - and best of all, vanilla friendly.

      Dario Casali's take on his brother's famous Go 2 It. Overall, I feel like although this is a decent take on the idea, Go 2 It is still a far better level.   The two levels are very similar, being based on expanded versions of Doom 2's Map01, but with lots more monsters. Generally speaking Punisher has the tougher monsters. Compared to Go 2 It, Punisher has more enemies, more cyberdemons, more masterminds, lots of chaingunners, and a legitimately problematic amount of pain elementals. However, even with the extra firepower, I feel like Punisher doesn't quite meet the difficulty of its counterpart. Go 2 It has a lot of homogenous crowds, meaning infighting can be troublesome at times. Punisher, on the other hand, is so varied that everything basically starts fighting immediately, making the large crowds pretty easy as long as you know what you're doing.   In the looks department, Punisher is also worse than its counterpart. Naturally, being a Doom 2 map, there are no fancy Plutonia textures to be found. This means that Dario instead had to fall back on Doom 2's rather bland brown brick and stone textures. Monster and item placement are scattered everywhere without much organization, making a lot of areas look messy. It's not a very aesthetically pleasing map, but it gets the job done (and the gameplay is the focus anyway.)   Is Punisher a bad map? No, certainly not.
      Is it worth playing? If you like this kind of map, absolutely!
      Does it hold up very well? Unfortunately, not really much at all.
