The next installment in the DBP series goes ice cold on us. An enjoyable romp with decent music choice, nice theme, fun and generally relaxing maps with varied style. I still prefer DBP 1 (Monuments of Mars) but once again swell job DBP team!

Quick map by map review:

-Map01: Great opener! A very well made introduction, short but stylish and memorable. Plenty of cool (no pun intended) moments and encounters.

-Map02: Above average map. Cool detailing and architectural bits, but combat is a bit forgettable (imp hordes were fun i guess?).

-Map03: Good "Circle of Death" remake/tribute. Uh, not much more to say actually 😛

-Map04: A map in Valkiriforce's signature mid 90s/Memento Mori style. This map doesnt represent that style in its peak, i personally consider this as the author's B material. But its still adequate, and certainly not a bad map.

-Map05: Haha this is awesome! So much energy in every step, and the whole thing looks wacky! Whimsical and quriky, fitting with the texture pack too. A must play! (along with map01)

-Map06: Darn fine mountain trek. A good amount of super shotgun and plasma rifle action in here, the mountains and cliffs are rendered beautifully, magical stuff with the water too. Great!

-Map07: Those igloo structuers are comical, so as the slaughter gameplay. Fun to blast through.

-Map08: Good slaughter finisher. It's not too punishing, plus it has many things to look at. Best sector snowman!

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.

      If it were renamed "Garbage Dump," I would have given it a better rating.

      A large, but not very prolong map, which is interesting to explore. I liked the author's strategy to place strong weapons in well-protected places. To get them the player need to pass a kind of test. The difficulty depends on the player's luck. It is important not to miss the shotgun at the very beginning, otherwise entangled corridors can lead the player to a situation in which he will be easy prey, left without ammo. Visually, the map looks neat, another good example of using standard textures.
