This is a really great map with some rough start that may leave you a tad annoyed but if you persevere you will be content. Difficulty is moderate, though ammo is limited and you will be in some tight spaces here and there. I don't dig the D64 sounds and music, as always.

I had a lot of fun with this. I absolutely love the Doom 3 textures being put to use, too. Excellent atmosphere, and probably one of the more 'fitting' uses of RSKY1 I've seen in quite some time. This level strongly encourages the player to thoroughly explore for secrets, otherwise your ammo count would always end up getting tight.

 

I would have given this 5 stars, had it not been for two things:

 

1) As mentioned before, ammo was particularly short towards the beginning. When I first played this I struggled with trying to conserve my Shotgun shells - having a Chaingun instead of having to resort to the Pistol might've been an improvement, although this didn't really bother me too much in all honesty.

 

2) Towards the end, I had an issue where picking up the yellow keycard made three nearby Imps atop of the cliff-faces unkillable. Not exactly sure what happened here, just make sure to kill them before collecting the key if you wish for a 100% kill rate.

 

Other than that, this was excellently done. Good job, Romulus!  :D

Well done! Someone should actually remake this in Doom 3. That would be sweet!

When I was in school, 4 out of 5 was a C, and this is better than that, though not pure 5 star material. 

 

The layout/flow is really cool. There's enough to explore without it really being an exploratory map, and you pretty much always know where you're going. I got lost for ten minutes, but that was entirely my fault (I missed a pretty obvious door), and knowing what I ultimately had to do/where I ultimately had to go led me in the right direction.

 

I think there are too many secrets. Missing a lot of them combined with a tight ammo situation could leave you a bit frustrated, especially toward the beginning.

 

The combat is solid throughout with a few memorable moments: one where monsters have the higher ground and you have to pick them off/move up carefully, one where you get locked into close quarters with an arch-vile and others with minimal cover, and one involving barrels, other obstructions, and a large rocket-launching enemy.

 

 

Overall, it's a nice looking, good playing map with a sense of adventure and some uniqueness.

Barely playable. You're given bare armaments, and have to contend with using a shotgun against Hellknights and Revenants until you drop down a hole, get stuck in a maze of tunnels filled with enemies, and then find yourself in an outdoor area, still unarmed, but surrounded by enemies. Honestly, I think Sisyphus has it easier.

      Lovely looking level with some great features. The weather alone is awesome! Very playable, no cheap traps or anything like that, just solid gameplay. Also had the noise from the "Shadows" from Babylon 5 coming from the strange skull trees. Solid all-rounder.

      This was an experience similar to the end of the movie 2001... It throws all conventional Dooming etiquette out the airlock and into the vacuum of space. Once I started playing this I simply had to keep playing, just to see how ridiculously stupid things could get.  As a jokewad I'd say it does it's job pretty well. It's worth a download if you want a laugh.

      Totally not biased giving this review or anything... :D

      A set of compact, sub-100 monster maps that create challenge through a combination of devious enemy placement and instances of highly unforgiving architecture - in some respects, this is reminiscent of a highly compressed version of Sunder.

      Did I miss something here from the players that gave this wad a 4 (and above) rating? The maps were too short, too linear, very bland and very easy. The music was horrible on most maps. With the exception of the elevators, I absolutely hated the new sounds. Finally, the soldier face was a bit much.   I did the first 6 maps in roughly 30 mins. - and that included looking for the secrets (which slapped you in the face at most times). I got to Map 14 before I just gave it up out of sheer boredom. I just couldn't see it getting better.   Sorry, IMHO, the play for Operation: BIOWAR just wasn't fun for me, even on UV.
