WHAT WAS THE MAKER FUCKING THINKING?!?!?!?!, This wad is a product of a infected diseased brain, why make a wad based on something cringe?, it is worse than Action 52 on the Nes or Hong Kong 97 on the Snes or EVEN BIG FUCKING RIGS ON THE PC! the enemy is not even scary it just happens to be a poorly drawn sprite, also he INSTANTLY KILLS YOU! the music is decent though i have to say it was a fuckin nightmare, If you play on skulltag level 2 will crash, since fuckin glitch gremlin wiped his ass on it, anyways FUCK this wad to Hell, get a infinity gauntlet and Snap it out of existence.
Definitely shows its age. It was a real grind to play through, mostly due to the levels being boring, but also from a remarkable over-reliance on hitscan, especially shotgunners. For some reason. The third episode does indeed pick up much of the slack, but with the really fun levels being shining exceptions rather than rule for two thirds of the WAD it still left me annoyed and exasperated in the end. The maps look fine most of the time and the music is good to really good, which is something to hold on to. I would still advice my past self to skip most of this one.
There's not too much for me to say about this one. While it isn't exactly my jam 100% of the time, I'm struggling to see how any creative endeavor could entertain me so thoroughly, throughout all the 32 parts of it. Ancient Aliens is charming, somewhat challenging, mysterious, well-paced... I could iterate over plenty of different variations of lavish praise, but I guess that in and of itself describes my feelings: AA is remarkably well-rounded. A DOOM blockbuster - and I use that description as an honest compliment rather than the pejorative it's sometimes thought of. One for the ages, and it'll be one of the WADs to which many of my future experience will be compared.
On second thought, this wad is kinda mid if you ask me. After playing through all of it on pistol-start I wasn't really blown away by it. The midi pack that was made for this in 2020 was very nice if you ask me, but why this wad ever deserves a midi pack when it's so bland is what makes me scratch my head. Idk man, I didn't like this one as much as others do :/.
