Had a blast with Vicarious Reality - I really liked the concept of pistol-starting simulations with different takes on the gameplay. Cool texture themes have you exploring bright and colorful techbases with some kind of focused gimmick mixed with traditional gameplay elements. It's a quick playthrough of only 6 maps, which was good for passing an evening. There's some cool ideas on display that would be a shame to spoil here, but the differences in what made each map special helped to keep things refreshing.

 

A warning for new players; every map has some kind of death exit, and a couple of times I did happen to break it in some way. One time I was killed by teleporting onto an exploding barrel, which killed me but didn't push the player dummy past the exit line. If all else fails you can always skip to the next map with the IDCLEVXX cheat.

      Picture this: you are playing a community project megawad and are still within the first ten levels. Some of the levels you have already played are fun but then you arrive here. Nothing bad or good and is over before you know it. The perfect level between two good levels in a megawad.
      Vanillic Acid is not part of a megawad or even a level set but exhibits all of the characteristics of a filler level. It has all the base characteristics of a Doom level and fails to do anything interesting with it. This level isn't bad but in the ocean of idgames why bother taking the time to play this one?

      Awesome midis. Some maps appear to be filler? I don't dislike them. I like to take breaths. My absolute favorite is Procustes Chambers (24). Replayed and re-enjoyed again. Great music!

      Very worthwhile map, starts out pretty tough, then becomes more manageable, but always challenging enough. Plenty of chaingunners, Barons, Revenants etc, but the big two are absent. All it really needs is a bit more of a 'big bang' ending.

      My favorites list: 10, 11, 12 and 23. Lots of city maps (I don't like them), or inspired by renowned ones.

      This map pack may not aged well, but some places are nice to see.
      Specially, the wharf itself with nearby buildings.
