Other than a few competent moments, this is quite passable... as in, pass it by to play a more exciting map. At best it's incredibly easy even on high difficulty levels, with pretty basic and usually ugly architecture, and at worst you get to navigate through a maze of single-linedef walls which of course don't block your shots. If there were anything other than melee golems around, it would have been even more annoying.

      Rather uninteresting visuals (apart from some attempts at fancy realistic decor). The level progression isn't too shabby, but the central room full of slow-moving lifts is annoying to go through. There's not a single exciting or difficult fight, especially if you play with the .deh that increases the health and ammo limits to ludicrous levels.

      A charming, late 90's map full of Doomcute and the like. More of a novelty; If you're looking for engaging gameplay, then you should probably look elsewhere. MAP01 has an inexplicable Romero head, and other non-sequiturs are present in these maps. That said, the charm this file exudes is too great for me to resist. The 'Novelties' included in the .zip are what they say: novelties. To judge these analytically would rob them of the 'fun factor' which is present throughout.   Useful tip for Pistol-starters: In MAP02, you can get an early SSG if you just bump into the window multiple times, in a back-and-forth fashion.   This wad is full of fun and charm, although not focused on serious gameplay, and if you are a fan of those things, you should consider this wad.

      Nice, clean and simple maps. Just like, I'm playing the old Doom 1!

      I'd heard of this, but wasn't sure if I'd played it. Being a big fan of the much earlier Classic Episode, I knew I had to try. Jan Van der Veken gives us a really well made E1 replacement that recalls KDITD in a familiar and fresh way, one of those iterations on the original theme that is a bit bigger, more complex, and more challenging, but still just reeks of classic Doom. A touch of E2 and E3 can be observed in the later maps, adding to the variety. Really fun to blast through this, it gets a little more tough near the end but for the most part is fun, easygoing classic Doom. I didn't like E1M8 so much, but the rest was great. Great architecture and flow.   Best: E1M3, E1M5, E1M6, E1M7

      Fantastic work, music and all and literally MY personal favorite wad of all time. Forget all the Jurkoffs at the bottom with the negative reviews they have no real taste in wads honestly speaking. Play this wad from start to finish you will have no regrets. 5 Stars.
